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?”

Because Beards is an anthology for charity, and it brings together amazing authors in one place. It's a chance to find some of your favorite authors and get to know some new ones as well.

And the bonus part, you are getting an anthology of several stories and helping charity at the same time. This is a 5 star read and something that has to be one clicked today!!

I'm not going to review all of the contributions, but I will talk about three of my favorites. First up, Thou Shalt Not Beard by Leslie McAdam. This was funny and quirky, and kept me reading until the end. A woman comes home from a two week bachelorette trip to find her fiance has grown a beard. GASP! How dare he! She wants him to shave and he refuses. Maybe there is more at play than just the beard, but maybe not. Read to find out exactly what happens with these two. 

Next up, No Joke by Kacey Shea. "A cover model, a photographer, and a romance writer all walk into a bar." Jokes on you that it's not a joke. I loved this story. The author writes about romance, but finds herself lacking in that department. Will she stay like that? Or will a hot guy with a beard have the ability to change her luck? The story had me chuckling and anxious to turn the page. Well written, it has enough steam to keep you wanting, and I couldn't stop smiling when I read it. 

Finally, The Beard Made Me Do It by Scott Hildreth. A woman is picked up by the cops for accessory to bank robbery.  How does this tie in with a beard? You have to read to find out. What i can tell you is that after you read the first page, you have to keep reading to find out what happens next! It's a necessity. 

All of the stories will satisfy you and are quick to read for when you don't have a lot of time to finish a story. The bonus, it's for charity. One click your copy today!!
