Product Description

Two hot holiday novellas about one sizzling couple. Meet Kate & Brock!

Book 1 ~ Twelve Days of Temptation:
How far would you go if you were offered a chance to fulfill your secret fantasies?

What would you ask someone to do, if you knew they’d do anything?

After the death of her mother and the abrupt end of her marriage, Kate is desperately unhappy to be spending the upcoming holiday season alone. She vents her frustration in a letter to the one man her mother raised her to believe in—Santa Claus. This year she is rebelliously requesting something guaranteed to raise his eyebrows.

Brock Foster has wanted Kate since they were in high school. When he finds her letter, her Christmas wish becomes his obsession. Winning her will require skill and deception. Brock initiates a game that will bring them together and tear them apart.

Join Kate and Brock as they discover what happens when Santa puts you on The Naughty List.

Book 2 ~ Be My Temptation:
What would you do if you discovered the man of your dreams was lying to you?

Would you leave him or would you make him pay?

When Kate Hale chose between two men, she picked the nice guy. He is every bit as wonderful in and out of the bedroom as she hoped he would be. Until she discovers his secret. He’s the man she wants to grow old with, right after she gives him a taste of his own medicine.

Brock Foster can’t believe how well everything has worked out. He won the heart of a woman he’s lusted after most of his life and is preparing to propose to her. When a game he thought had finished resurfaces and threatens to tear them apart, Brock must decide exactly how far he’ll go to be Kate’s Valentine.

Wow, talk about steamy, I loved the intensity between the characters. There were parts I cringed between their stupidity of not been honest, but let's face it, we've all does those things we thought we were doing with the right intention and it back fired. I loved the heat between Kate and Brock. Both of them have their faults, and both wear their heart on their sleeves in their own way. Ruth has done an amazing job of portraying both sides of their story, the hurts, the anger, the love and the hot lust.
I hope you enjoy as much as I did

This is one HOT series!

Twelve Days of Temptation
Do you write to Santa?? Kate does in Twelve Days of Temptation. What she asks for and receives makes this one HOT read.
Nice guy Brock finds Kate's letter to Santa and decides to fulfill her naughty wish in guise as "Mr.Elf." Mr.Elf plays games to help bring out a more confident Kate all the while not revealing himself as Brock.

Be My Temptation
Temptations are dangerous & tantalizing but yet so FUN as you will see in Brock and Kate's escapades.
Kate has a decision to make - choosing between the "two men" in her life. What will Kate do when she discovers Mr.Elf's identity?

These were quick reads for me - it was so GOOD - I couldn't put it down

A fun series that will keep you warm, very warm - LOVE IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, sexy and sweet 25 March 2017
By Jane kennedy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved this book. Kate is uptight and just out of a loveless marriage. She returns to her childhood home following the death of her mother and runs into Brock, a friend from way back. Brock had always had a crush on Kate but had never acted on it. Kate, in a fit of temper write to Santa asking for a man who can show her what she has been missing. She decides, after all not to list the letter, but unbeknownst to her, she drops the letter on her way home. Brock just happens to find it. Fortune favors the brave..... Brock decides that he can be just what Kate has asked for. Game on, but as we all know truth will out, and never at a convenient time. Kate is devastated when she finds out what Brock has done, can their relationship survive? There are some truly funny moments in the story, where Brock tries to show Kate he loves her and is sorry. There are some very hot moments in the story and a sweet HEA

3.0 out of 5 stars Not blown away 9 December 2015
By Lenore L Kosinski - Published on

Twelve Days of Temptation:
2.5 stars -- I don't was an ok read for me, but I wasn't blown away. Maybe it's because I did end up having a problem with the deception, and the fact that Brock chose to keep it a secret in the end? Maybe because we got to see inside his head, and the number of times he was focused on the sex and not seeming to care about the woman herself....not that it was always like that, but it just gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I found that near the end I was waiting for it all to blow up in Brock's face, probably b/c I know this is a two parter and I read the synopsis for the second book, so I made some bad assumptions about how this book was going to end. So I found myself less interested in the story as it went on.... Or maybe I'm just having one of those days?? I mean, I'm not even sure I care if I read the next part of the story....

Be My Temptation:
3 stars -- I tried to put away my grievances from the first book and start cleaner with this second book...and for the most part I achieved that. This one started off funny -- I mean, I guessed what was happening, but if I hadn't I probably wouldn't have appreciated it since it came across cheaty (and I'm a no cheating girl). And then I was actually enjoying myself not too badly -- it was nice to watch Brock and Kate together when things were good and pretending nothing was between them. But of course what I had been expecting at the end of book 1 had to happen (ie Kate had to figure out Brock was Mr. Elf), and then it was just ok again. I wasn't a huge fan of playing games to get him to confess, and so I had a hard time going through the emotions with Kate. It wasn't fun, though it wasn't meant to be.... I guess I just didn't feel sympathy for either of the characters, so I just wasn't all that personally involved in the storyline.

Wow, this turned into a longer review than I had been anticipating. All in all I just wasn't that invested in the characters or the storyline in this 2 part novella series. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I found I wasn't even that interested in the steamy parts b/c there was stuff hanging over their heads most of the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok book 17 October 2015
By Sharon - Published on

There are 2 novellas in this book, I liked the 2nd one better. I enjoy steamy sex, just not on every page! In the first novella that was all they did. I didn't feel any passion, just lust. In the 2nd novella, you finally got to see how much they cared for each other. I enjoyed her other books more than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Mr Elf!! 27 February 2015
By Donna Cheatle - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Ruth Cardello is amazing! Her gift is best shared and she shares is willingly! These stories hit every note. They're fun, smart, sassy, sexy and sweet, all at the same time. Ruth's ability to effortlessly pull emotions from her readers is phenomenal. She can make you cry and then turn right around and have you snickering like a naughty, naughty child, all the while setting fire to your panties!! She's just that good. The story of Kate and Brock hits all 5 stars. Theirs is a great story that could easily have gone terribly wrong, but with humor and warmth and a lot of fun they find their way to happiness. I don't do spoilers, but HELLO MR. ELF, ROFL
