Ian Dare misses the alone time and intense sex life he and his wife shared before their children were born. What’s an alpha man to do? He kidnaps Riley for an erotic weekend away before the Christmas rush overwhelms them both.

Riley Dare adores her husband and his dominant and protective ways, and she’s excited to spend time with him minus distractions on a sexy retreat where anything goes … and spontaneity leads to future surprises.

A complete stand-alone for people who haven’t yet read Dare to Love but a special treat for those who want to revisit their favorite couple.

  • A Christmas Gift

    By PattiA810
    I love the Dare clan especially Ian. This too quick Christmas story is sexy, sweet and fun - a perfect little holiday getaway.
  • Christmas Dare style!

    By Newberryd
    A short little novella to add a dash of Christmas cheer, Dare style. Running a household and raising two small children is exhausting. Lucky for Riley, she is married to a take charge man who can afford to provide her with a romantic weekend getaway and household help. A hot little addition to the Dare books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • A Very Dare Christmas

    By Jen G F
    ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars A Very Dare Christmas is book 6.5 in the Dare to Love series by Carly Phillips and what fun to catch up with Ian and Riley and some of the rest of the Dare family. The short quick sexy novella is what life becomes when you have children, a large family, Christmas time and no timewith your husband...now Ian wants his wife back so he whisks her away to relax, relate and reconnect...and maybe repopulate??
  • Love these two!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This extremely short story is book 6.5 in the Dare to Love series and it brings us back with Riley and Ian. Losing each other in the daily grind of kids and work is not an option for Ian as he whisks Riley away for the weekend. It’s ALWAYS nice to see Ian take charge! I’m definitely looking forward to more from the Dare family.
  • A sweet Christmas story

    By charlligirl
    A very sweet Christmas story revisiting our original Dare family. I've always loved Ian and Riley and it was great to see them again with their kids and with the Christmas get together with all of the other family members, cousins included. Too short, but very sweet.

  • A return of my favorite Dare duo!

    By AKDaniel35
    I was so incredibly excited when I found out the Ian and Riley were getting a new book!!! I love the Dare world and they have always been one of my favorite Carly Phillips couples. Ian saw that Riley was tired and needed a getaway for just the two of them. I loved every moment of this story and highly recommend it!

    Is there anything better then an update for one of the best series out there. Carly Phillips dare series is never a disappointment. I loved catching up with Riley and Ian. Holidays are always good but this made it better.
  • Sweet Christmas novella!

    By KindleKat64
    This a delicious little Christmas treat!! What a sweet and sexy little short story featuring Ian and Riley as the main characters, but we also get a little more of the other Dares too at their Christmas gathering. Ian and Riley are still one of my favorite Dare couples and it is so sweet and hot to see Ian take charge and make sure his wife does not forget about her own needs now that they have two little ones. Their love is just as big if not bigger than ever!! I really enjoyed this!!
