STRANGER IN MY STOCKING
Wild Winter/Quickie/Light Bondage/Contemporary/Christmas
Rating: 4 Cups
Alyson Charmaine is stuck in a motel on Christmas due to a blizzard. She is not all that unhappy about it because, while she loves her large family, she does not miss having them encourage her to settle down and get married. She is unsatisfied with her life and her lack of a man, but she is unwilling to accept second best. When she sees Greg, she thinks he is her best fantasy come to life.
Greg Ellington is traveling; his final destination ultimately his family’s villa in Spain. However, the blizzard starts just as he is getting off one plane to change to another, and he finds himself stuck in the same motel as Alyson. He notices Alyson right away, and he knows he wants her.
When both Greg and Alyson get checked into the same room, interesting things happen. When Greg comes out of the shower to find the beautiful blonde he was admiring dancing nearly naked to the Christmas music, he is stunned, but very happy. It is not long before things get hot and heavy, but will these two end up a couple or will this be a one night stand?
Ms. McCray does an excellent job of showing how fate and a little help from Santa Claus can give someone their fondest desires. The author describes a chance encounter with flair and realism, and because of this it made the story believable. The bondage scenes are light and fun. The emotions are well described and the sex very hot. The setting is descriptive, making me feel as though I were literally holed up somewhere with a blizzard outside. I look forward to reading more by this exciting author, and plan on recommending her to others who enjoy erotic romance.
