Holidays: The Storm’s Gift (2017 Advent Calendar – Stocking Stuffers) by A.D. Ellis

Dreamspinner Presents


Snowed in together in their college dorm, two men share a quick connection that creates enough heat to spar with the blizzard outside.

Rory Blackwell plans to rejuvenate his mind and repair his battered heart after his world is shaken by an unexpected breakup. James Austin’s freshman-year plans of improving his social life crashed and burned, leaving him feeling as alone and outcast as he did back home.

One man is hurting while the other is eager to provide comfort. One is a virgin, the other experienced with other men. Both are looking forward to Winter Break, but can they take full advantage of their situation—or will the passion ignited between them fizzle out with the storm?


Fate or destiny? Stuck in the dorm during Christmas break because of a massive ice and snow storm, James the typical novice freshman and Rory the confident senior discover each other. AD Ellis has laid out a story that is both possible and rings true with the given circumstances. She shows how a freshman worries about fitting in, missing family and not just suddenly becoming a different person once he arrives at college. Rory is a senior, an RA, and newly single, who is more observant than James expected.

Watch as they get together and have hot steamy sexy times
