Have Yourself A Sexy Little Christmas: An Ethan and Cassie Novella

Ethan and Cassie’s first Christmas with the Holt family should be nothing but jolly. Sure, Cassie’s a mess trying to impress her future in-laws with the perfect casserole, but when an unexpected blast from Ethan’s past shows up beneath the tree, the season gets a whole lot more seriousand sexy.

The Naughty List: A Liam and Elissa Novella

After being apart for months, Liam and Elissa are making up for lost time on a secluded island, where they think they’re free to explore each other’s bodies in peace. But when it turns out their Christmas sanctuary isn’t as deserted as it first seemed, and pictures of a hot, naked Liam surface to break the internet, their Christmas dreams turn into a nightmare.

Happy, Sappy New Year: A Grove Novella

When the gang from the Grove gets together at a lavish New Year’s Eve party, it’s like no time has passed. Except Elissa and Josh are dating Hollywood royalty, Jack and Zoe have been hooking up in secret, Connor’s new girlfriend wants to murder Cassie, and Erika’s mystery man has everyone talking. Before midnight, shocking revelations are made, industry tongues are wagging, and the poor mistletoe is ready to pass out from overuse.

We're back with all our darlings from the #Starcrossed series!
And to top off the amazingness of that fact - it all takes place around Christmas and New Year's

The first novella is about Ethan and Cassie's first Christmas as engaged people!
They're supposed to spend Christmas Dinner with Ethan's family and Cassie desperately wants to cook something nice for them all. But we all know she's not a cook. So not a cook. As in horribly untalented. Dangerously so, if we listen to what Ethan tells us.
We spend some amazingly - ROFL - funny moments with poor Ethan test-eating Cassie's cooking!
And of course there are lots of sexy moments too with those two! ☺
And Ethan's horrible ex shows up again to stir up trouble - but only for a second! Don't worry! You should be more worried about Cassie's cooking ☺☺☺☺

Novella 2 is about Ethan's sister Elissa and her Hollywood superstar boyfriend Liam!
Elissa is busy managing a huge Hollywood charity event, while poor Liam is filming on the other side of the world. But soon they'll be together again - Liam's planned a verrrry sexy and solitary private island vacation...
But solitary means paprazzi are allowed too, right?? ☺☺☺

The last novella has all of our darlings celebrating New Year's Eve at a Broadway party in NYC.
Josh is acting a bit like the ghost of new year's present - helping everybody with their love-problems.... Poor Josh is missing Angel like crazy and while she's been in Australia filming, he's been making use of Liam's home gym to become a muscular guy for the first time in his life! He's been so jealous of Angel's co-star - he just had to do something. But he doesn't yet get that Angel loves him just like he is....


Gah. Such a beautiful & funny & adorable book!
Three novellas about all of our favorite couples from this amazing series!

I loved to see them all again. I'm a bookalzheimer's sufferer, so I was afraid I wouldn't remember who was who, but how could I ever forget Liam & Ethan & Josh!
They're soooo adorable and hot and funny and ugh. I just love those guys and their girls.
I almost fell off the couch laughing about Cassie's cooking scenes!!!

This was the most perfect addition to this amazing series!

Run to your nearest amazon asap for your own Bad Romeo Christmas!

Can't wait for whatever Leisa is bringing us next - I heard rumors about a hottie escort guy! ☺

Yes!  More of Ethan, Liam and Josh!

I have terrible bookzheimers, and was not sure I was going to remember everything about them, but silly me, how could I forget these men?

I loved getting these extra glimpses into our lovelies lives since we last left them.

I laughed, I cried, I got angry and sad.  But most of all, I had a smile on my face whilst reading.   I hadn't realised how much I missed the Starcrossed guys and gals until I was back in their world.

I was especially happy with the Josh and Angel novella.  They have always been the bit players to Ethan/Cassie and Liam/Lissa, so getting more in depth with them made me love them even more.

Bad Romeo Christmas had me wishing for a white Christmas/New Year (not going to happen unless I throw foam in the swimming pool and the blow flies drop artificial snow on me!)

I can't wait to see what Ms Rayven brings us next.  I know it will be an automatic buy for me.


If you haven't read the #BadRomeo series yet - DO IT NOW!!!!!

Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn’t long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.
Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that’s because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm.
Since then, she’s honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia.
These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, was published through Macmillan New York in December 2014. The sequel, BROKEN JULIET was released in April 2015, and the final book in Leisa’s Starcrossed series, WICKED HEART, will hit bookstores and kindles on May 3rd, 2016.
The Starcrossed series has gained hordes of passionate fans all over the world, and the books have now been translated into eight foreign languages. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have also featured on international best seller lists in Brazil and Germany.
Leisa Rayven lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.
(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.)
