For only $0.99, and all proceeds going to The Movember Foundation to benefit men’s health, this charity anthology brings you twenty-one original short stories from your favorite romance authors; some hot, others sweet, and a few ultra-steamy… but all bearded for your pleasure.


I bit my lip. The idea of his lips dancing against my skin had my blood boiling.

But the beard…

“You’d scratch my skin all to hell,” I whined but it was a little breathy.

“Oh Livy.” He said my name in a way that sent shivers down my spine. “Have you ever been kissed by a man with a beard?”

“No,” I admitted.

“God, I’d make it so good for you.” Desire was thick in his voice, and my body responded to it.

“You would?” I couldn’t help myself—the voice, without the visual, spoke to me on a primal level.

“Hell yes I would.” There was a hint of determination, maybe even force behind his statement.


“What would you do to me?”


I absolutely adored this anthology! I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it, and I have to be honest when I say that I’m not a huge fan of beards. I decided to take a chance on this collection since I love a few of these authors. And I’m so glad that I did. I will definitely be adding some new authors to my TBR list!

These were such great short stories. Some were super quick waiting-in-the-car-line reads while others were a bit longer. They ranged from sweet and innocent to sexy and passionate stories that’ll have you begging your man to grow a beard if he doesn’t already have one. I found myself noticing all the beards around me and wanting to rub on some random guy’s face at times. Ha!

I think what I liked most about these novellas was the fact that they were unique, creative, and realistic stories with either that instant connection and chemistry between the two main characters or that moment where they were finally giving in to the passion that has lingered beneath the surface for years. There’s also a little something among the stories for the ladies who don’t like the beard. 😉  I’m looking forward to reading more stories by these authors. Maybe we’ll even get to see more of some of these characters. A girl can hope!
