I hated to give this book 3 stars and not 5 but the last story pulled it down. I really can't do better than that since 1/3 of the book was the downer.

The first two stories I really thought were great for a blustery night by the fireplace-reading if you are in the mood for light-hearted sweetness and happiness along with a naughty and nice twist . . . as it was it was blustery outside my window I thoroughly enjoyed them.

The third one by Rhonda Nelson turned me off the moment the female character thought and then opened her mouth. Had it been a stand-alone short story, it would have received 1 star. I loved the male character; thought he was a sweetheart and just a real nice guy. She however, was not only not doing what her neighbors asked her to do . . . two newspapers outside the door and a full mailbox, but she was unlikeable by taking advantage of them. I would imagine she got no better as the story progressed after one found her using the hot tub, half soused because she was #1 stupid enough to drink while in it #2 drinking on an empty stomach and #3 (the most important to me) while the house looked like the occupants were out of town. What ran through my mind was 'the poor guy . . . he deserves better than this yuko-user'. I didn't get past the 3rd chapter I disliked her so much . . . didn't care for anything about it except him. I normally don't complain about story lines I don't like but she was too much to bear and bare! I sure hope the poor sod took her for what she was a dim-witted user and a real loser!

I purchased this book because I adored Vicki Lewis Thompson Sons of Chance series. However, what I didn't count on was also adoring the other two authors, Jennifer LaBrecque and Rhonda Nelson's books as well.

In each novella, all couples fell in love within a couple of days. Each author's contribution was incredible.

VLT's book was It's Christmas, Cowboy and features one of the handsome cowboys from the Last Chance Ranch, Tucker Ramsey. Tucker's chasing a runaway horse on Christmas Eve and whose cabin should he come upon but an old friend from high school, Lacey Evans who he hadn't seen in years. Tucker was considered a "bad boy" back then and stole a kiss one night at a dance. A kiss neither one of them had forgotten.

Lacey was nursing wounds from a broken up relationship. As for Tucker, he just wanted to prove himself to the Chance Brother's. Neither one of them were too keen on Christmas but what transpired over Christmas Eve, will steal your breath away thanks to the marvelous Vicki Lewis Thompson. The Last Chance series is one you won't want to miss, I promise
Jennifer LaBrecque was a new author for me to read and I loved her Northern Fantasy (Alaskan Heat Holiday Novella). Two buddies heading for Alaska as one will be the groom and the other in the wedding party. Jared Martin and Nick had been good friends forever. Nick was a stockbroker in New York and looking forward to seeing and spending time in the small town of Good Riddance, Alaska. What he also didn't expect was to meet was a lovely aspiring actress, who wanted a career in New York by the name of Teddy Monroe.

Teddy and Jared ended more than acquaintances; they ended up both being in the wedding party and "lusted" after each other. They more than lusted, they fell in love and things became complicated for them both.

It was such a fun book, with great secondary characters and an interesting town in Alaska celebrating the Christmas Holidays thanks to Jennifer LaBrecque. I'll continue to look for Jennifer's books and I certainly enjoyed this one.

Rhonda Nelson was also a new author for me and one from now on I'll continue to look for her books. Her contribution was He'll be Home for Christmas and about a military man coming home to Florida to surprise he parents. Of course they are on a cruise but there's one hot interior designer naked in his parent's hot tub.
Silas Davenport and Delphie Moreau's romance got off to an interesting start. From the beginning things sizzled between them from the red lacey underwear, to her lovely beauty, to prepared home cooked meals.

Silas was an honorable man and one hot soldier. As for Delphie she was feeling "blue" thanks to her sister's Christmas wedding with no date and relatives who would notice. Yes, you guessed correctly, she cooks him a home cooked meal and things heat up in her kitchen and home and of course, Silas becomes her date for the wedding.

Like the other author's holiday romances, Rhonda did an incredible job and she is also one I look forward to reading again.

"It's Christmas, Cowboy" by Vicki Lewis Thompson. As a blizzard is coming to the Last Chance Ranch, cowboy Tucker Ramsey, who did not celebrate Christmas, searches for Houdini the escape artist horse. Forest Service Ranger Lacey Evans stays in a cabin when Tucker, Houdini and his overturned snowmobile arrive. Lacey and Tucker soon celebrate the holiday in bed as the blizzard hits in a Sons of Chance Holiday tale.

"Northern Fantasy" by Jennifer LaBrecque. Manhattan stockbroker Jared Martin accompanies his childhood friend Nick Hudson to Good Riddance, Alaska as a groomsman at his pal's wedding to Gus Tippens. Jared thinks Nick is nuts until he meets bridesmaid Teddy Monroe in this Alaskan Heat Holiday tale.

"He'll Be Home for Christmas" by Rhonda Nelson. Major Silas Davenport comes home on holiday leave, but his parents are not there to greet him. Instead, interior decorator Delphie Moreau welcomes him home for Christmas in this Uniformly Hot Holiday tale.

These are three heated holiday romances starring engaging protagonists.

Merry Christmas, Baby is another Christmas anthology. It has three different short stories about couples who find love at the holidays.

First story is "It's Christmas, Cowboy" (linked to Sons of Chance series), about the cowboy Tucker Rankin and Lacey Evans, who met at school and haven't seen each other for years, until an accident unite them and force them to spend a night at Lacey's cabin. Both of them have issues celebrating Christmas, but it's time for them to get over it and enjoy it, specially since they are together and still attracted to each other.

"Northern Fantasy" (linked to LaBrecque's Alaskan Heat series) is settled in Alaska, where New Yorker Jaren Martin needs a break and met Teddy Monroe, a woman who turn him on the exact moment he saw her. This one is definitely the hotest story of the three, their attraction was indomitable, but I think it would have been better if the story would have been longer, since the characters had more to say.

"He'll Be Home for Christmas" (not sure if it's linked to the Men Out of Uniform series) is about Silas, who just got permission to spend the holidays with his family and Delphie, his neighbor and the only who is looking after his parent's house. This story is very sweet, Delphie and Silas fell in love and it wasn't only about physical attraction, and I absolutely loved the ending. I think it was perfect for a short story and very realistic, it was my favorite.

Overall, I think Merry Christmas, Baby is the perfect anthology is you are looking for naughty holidays short stories. And don't worry about the stories being linked to series, you can still read them if you haven't read the previous books.

Like my headline said. Fun and Easy.

Loved how Christmas evoked such sadness and how they turned it into such happiness.
This book is by far not a long read nor is it a hard read but perfect for a relaxing read after a long day.
Definitely read the rest of Thompson's Last Chance books.

3 incredibly juicy books all in one! These were all three wonderful reads! A great book to sit by the Christmas Tree and enjoy the sizzling HEAT from these great authors. I really enjoyed these short stories and found them all to be funny, comforting, and sexxxy as well! A great, fun Holiday Read!

This review is for the whole Sons Of Chance Series. My favorite thing about these books besides the characters is the prologue. This series is like the monarch family of The Big Valley or Bonanza and so on. What I mean, is these books revolve on family being the most important thing, The matriarch is Miss Sarah, The stories revolve around issues that arise and how the family deals with every issue. They are also love stories of how the people that belong to Last Chance and those that come along that bring them together as the family or extended family. You will come to realize why the ranch is called The Last Chance. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did
