A Stella Advent Story Review: Unto Us the Time Has Come by Sean Michael


Rating: 4,5 out of 5 stars

Unto Us the Time Has ComeLast Christmas, Kenn Greyson gave husband Chris Martenson an ultimatum—spend more time with the family or we’re leaving. He never expected Chris’s reply would be “then leave,” but that’s exactly what happened, and Boxing Day took on a whole new meaning. 

Separated for nearly a year now, both men are miserable apart and coping the best they can for the kids’ sake. With Christmas just around the corner, a new conflict arises: neither man is willing to forego Christmas morning with their children. Chris finally suggests they spend the holiday together at the house and, to his shock, Kenn agrees.

Armed with the knowledge that he’s been a stubborn idiot, but that perhaps he can change and begin to repair their relationship, Chris takes steps to win his husband back. He just hopes he can get Kenn on the same page before Santa comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”

Sean Michael is the author I go when I need some sweetness and cuddles in my reading time. He never disappoint me. Especially in his stories featuring children. I’m a sucker for those ones. So you can guess how happy I was when I finished this DSP Advent Calendar short called Unto Us The Time Has Come.

It is a second chance at love story with an established couple, Kenn and Chris, who just spent the last year being apart, but they are still deep in love. Christmas is around the corner and they need to spend it together, for their children’s sake. Moreover it’s time for them to pull their heads from their asses and understand being apart is just making them miserable.

Yes, I love Sean Michael books. His stories are all easy to read, full of emotions and always full of steamy sex. I can’t ask for more. And this story is the reason why I keep being hungry for more of his work. It is a short but it lacked of nothing, especially in the good feelings.

I like the cover art by Catt Ford very much.

And Its Almost 2016! This Week At Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words


blocks 2016 2015


2015 is winding down and I’m busily compiling our year-end lists!  No time! No time!  I feel like the White Rabbit snapping his pocket watch closed and jumping down the rabbit hole!  There’s never enough time to get it all done!  Where did the year go?

Down the rabbit hole……down the rabbit hole

It’s been such a busy year for us, a time of growth and yes, growing pains.  Time for figuring things out, reworking, and moving forward.  New reviewers, new blog columns, new blog discoveries and always loads of books from ebooks to audiobooks to review.  What a great year its been.

Now I have lists to compile, including lists from our reviewers and the end is rushing at me.  Time is running out!  Oh me  oh my!

So this week is intentionally light.  We are spending time with our loved ones, reading and relaxing.  Taking time to reflect, look around, look to the past before we move forward once more.  Some of that’s coming your way this week.  So cheers to you all.  So long, 2015! Let’s grab up our Kindles, books or however we love to read and march gaily forward….oh wait I still need to make some lists….

*Rubs glasses furiously, sticks them back on the nose*  Now where was I on my next list?  On yes, this week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words.  That’s the easy one!
