Book three in The Seven Deadly Sins Collection of Anthologies The seven deadly sins: lust, wrath, greed, gluttony, envy, pride and sloth. The Sins of Winter weaves a general thread of revelation loosely tying these tales together. Acedia (a precursor to sloth), Greed and Pride, are explored in these hot m/m tales involving action, burning hot sex and out-of-this-world adventures that will warm you up...fast! 'Toppling Pedestals' by D.J.Manly In 'Toppling Pedestals', DJ Manly deals with the sin of pride. The thought that there was something better out there took Tristan away...then pride almost broke his heart. Tristan, Samuel and Casey had been friends since grade one. When Casey-the doctor's son-goes off to university, Samuel and Tristan are left behind in their small hometown. Samuel comes from a poor background and has no money for school. He takes a job in the hardware store that Tristan's parents own. Tristan decides to work at the store for a year before joining Casey at school. He's expected to run the store eventually but wants to explore what's out there first. Breaking away from the town means breaking Samuel's heart. When tragedy brings Tristan home again, will pride stand in the way of letting Samuel know how he feels? 'If Come' by A.J.Llewellyn In If Come, AJ Llewellyn deals with the ancient deadly sin of acedia. It was once considered the 'noonday demon'-a melancholia that is brought about by repetitive work. Writing, marriage and monkhood were the three main occupations said to induce it. Zam Carmarthen is a mildly successful Hollywood screenwriter struggling with a debilitating depression that prevents him from completing anything he starts. When he lands an 'If Come' deal with a major Hollywood producer, he's finally forced to focus on his work and not give into the strange malaise gripping him. In order to ever move ahead in the movie business, he must complete the pilot episode of his proposed TV series, Angel Inn. If his producer is able to sell the series, Zam will be a very rich man. Everything he has worked for can be his. Paralysed by his depression, he finds unusual solace in the form of his arch nemesis, Dominic Glass-a surgeon turned super successful screenwriter...and the man who rewrote Zam's hit screenplay for his own glory. Can Zam overcome the depression Dominic calls acedia, which threatens to derail his whole life? Can he move on from his long time sex buddy Jason? And what about these new feelings he has for Dominic in spite of their rocky history? Will Zam get it together...or will Dominic once again walk away with all the credit for something Zam created? 'Winter Challenge' by Serena Yates In Winter Challenge, Serena Yates deals with the sin of greed. Paediatrician Noah Goldwin receives some bad news-his father has died and his greedy elder brother doesn't only take over the family business, he wants the entire fortune for himself. So, he informs Noah that he was adopted and washes his hands of him. Noah, who never knew of his past, sets out to find his roots. An elderly aunt, a mysterious ring and a location in the far north of Canada are his only hints...until he meets a tall, dark stranger who may have the solution to all his questions. There is only one problem-Ataro lives in a parallel dimension. Will the two men be able to find a way to join forces? How will they defeat the power hungry enemies on Ataro's world? And are inter-dimensional relationships even possible?
