Publisher's Summary

A Christmas trifle from Devon/Dee.

The holiday spirit has forsaken Simon Harris. A recent reminder of the man who used and then left him sends lonely Simon on a glum visit to his club to while away a few hours. A breath of fresh air in the form of Christopher Andrews is about to enter his stale life. Performer of many talents and faces, Christopher gained entrée into the club to win money at cards. Unfortunately, he's losing. But the evening needn't be a complete disappointment as he strikes up a friendship with a gentleman which ends in a bedroom. Simon and Christopher enjoy a few hours of pleasure together, never expecting to see each other again, but Simon's newfound resolution to change might just transform both their holidays.

A short story, which includes a brief excerpt. Simon and Christopher's future will appear in our next short: Will and the Valentine Saint.

Charming, I Love Collins Reading This Duo

A charming twist on A Christmas Carol. No one can perform Summer Devon and Bonnie Dee's historicals quite like Cornell Collins. If you're in the mood for a little Christmas spirit (or Christmas in July like I was), Simon and the Christmas Spirit will suit you perfectly.

Sweet and sexy

Cornell Collins is a pleasure to hear any day of the week, his performance is always on point, and hits every emotional note with accuracy. The story is certainly delightful, Simon is sweet and melancholy with his earnest wish to be loved, and his broken heart is even more saddened by being alone at Christmas. But fate smiles at him when the dashing Christopher appears at his club under the guise of a rich man playing at cards. Both men end up in a place they never expected and with feelings they weren't looking for. It is a sweet romance, with a lot of heat for a novella, and full of happy Christmas feelings.

Excellent story and narration

I really enjoyed the story in this book as well as the narration. Collins really brought the characters to life with his pacing, voices, and characterization. The authors, as usual, wrote a great story.

Very sweet, good fun!

A charming short story about found families and Christmas cheer, very well read by a talented performer. The reader created distinct voices for many characters and brought this sweet holiday story to life. A cheerful tale well worth listening to any time of year!

Sweet Romance

I loved this book and the narrator was wonderful. The story was engaging and much too short.

Loved it

It’s a well written, low angst historical romance. I found it on the membership list of audible and would love to read the rest of the authors works.

Utterly Charming

A truly lovely story. Very well written, invitingly erotic in a curious stylized way but not too saucy, the wording appropriate to the times. The narration is perhaps the best I've heard. very highly recommended.

It was super boring. Had to quit.

To me, this story was very boring. I tried to get involved, tried to give it some extra time, but I didn’t make it very far before I was jumping forward looking for anything to keep me interested.

Narrator didn’t sound bad, though.
