For this first one, I’m giving you another snippet from 3 Holidays for Jon & Ben, the first Corbin’s Bend Pride book. Within you’ll find 3 tales of holidays from Jonathon & Benjamin’s life together. Gotta love these two. In this snippet, Jonathon gets his first look at a truly garish holiday display. He doesn’t have the reaction you might expect…
Figuring he had time to take a small look—after all it would be good to look at cheap displays as well as the ones he’d fallen in love with at the previous store—he kept walking until he reached, well…, things he’d never seen before.
Standing at the opening to a cordoned-off area filled with holiday displays, Jonathon gawked. Whereas everything at the last store had been conservative tasteful, the sheer amount of color in front of him was gaudy. A giggle wanted to work its way up his body, but he pushed it back down. Now was not the time to act like a little boy. In fact, he should just go buy his plug and be done with it. And yet, he walked through the opening into it all the same.
There were balls twelve inches across for trees outside, dancing Santas, a life-sized nativity scene with animatronic wisemen singing a hymn, and a menorah ten feet tall that lit itself. He was entranced, totally and utterly captivated. Where the adult in him had adored the other store, the child inside had found home in the garish display.

If you love Corbin's Bend's Jonathon & Benjamin, you’ll enjoy the following holiday stories. Each one is from a different time in their relationship.
In Benjamin’s Arms
Jonathon is thrilled for this holiday with Benjamin. It will be the first one since they got together where Ben will be home. He plans to make the most of it. His plans take on a life of their own and before he knows it, their apartment has been holiday’d up. As excited as he is to see Ben, he begins to feel a little strange. Not wanting to ruin their first holiday together, he doesn’t mention it.
Ben has never spanked him before, but if his love puts his health in danger, he’s going to make sure Jonathon knows he is always there for him.
You’ve Been Gifted
Jonathon—overcome with stress—receives an unexpected gift from a Secret Santa and it turns the worst day of the year into possibly the best. Especially when Benjamin sees it.
A Jonathon Carol
The last year has brought about changes for Jonathon and Benjamin, huge changes. Unfortunately, the anniversary of the day they met is once again upon them. If it isn’t for the fact Ben is out of town and four ghosts are plaguing Jonathon’s dreams, the holiday might be like every one before it. If the Corbin’s Bend ghosts have their way, this holiday is going to turn everything right side up.
