Indulgence Holiday Round Up



'Twas a fortnight before Christmas, when all through Entangled
Not a novel was forgotten, not a single title;
The Romance Abroad was bundled with care,
In hopes that it would transport the readers somewhere;
The billionaires' were all perfectly matched,
No more visions of loved ones dancing out of their grasp;
Lovers were finally united, past and present,
Embracing the Holidays, throughout the worlds and nations.
And even the half-demons found their soulmates in Mortals,
Waiting  900 years for a chance at arousal.
When out at the bookstores there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our desks to see what was the matter:
Brand-new Holiday Releases from Entangled
For YOU, our Beloved Readers.
