Romance for Christmas!

Christmas time always brings out the romantic in many of us, and this year the romance is bright and glowing with great authors and stories to choose from!  Here are some titles that might tickle your fancy and your romantic nature during the holiday season!

His Christmas Pleasure by Cathy Maxwell

Isn't this cover gorgeous!!!

Cathy Maxwell is one of my favorite romantic authors, and her holiday romance "His Christmas Pleasure" is just a delight to read! She employs just the right amount of sensuality, drama and humor to create a tale that will resonant with her readers long after the last word is savored! (Yes, she is really that good!)

About The Book:

When her father threatens to marry Abigail Montross off to a man twice her age (and with thirteen children!), she decides to elope instead with the irresistibly handsome Barón de Vasconia. She knows all about his notorious reputation. He is the most seductive man in all of London, but he's vowed to protect her, so she allows herself to be tempted into his bed, promising to guard her heart at all costs.
Andres believes he's entered into nothing more than a marriage of convenience with a charming and very wealthy young woman. But the days—and nights—Abigail spends in his arms soon reform this rogue. He'll do anything to gain her love—until they each discover the truth about the other and old wounds are revealed.

It's the season of miracles and passion—when love not only awakens the senses but delivers the greatest gift of all!

A Christmas Waltz by Jane Goodger

This charming book is set in a little dusty Texas town outside of Fort Worth, then travels to the English shores along the Irish Sea! This is the first book I've read by Jane Goodger, but after this, it won't be the last!

About the Book:

To Lady Amelia Wellesley, it seems utterly romantic to surprise her dashing fiancé at his home in Texas so the two can marry by Christmas. But Amelia's surprise goes awry when Carson Kitteridge calls off their wedding as soon as she arrives, leaving Amelia in disgrace.
With nowhere to turn, Amelia finds an unlikely savior in Carson's brother, Dr. Boone Kitteridge. Boone offers to marry Amelia, sparing her the shame of returning to England unwed. But Boone isn't just protecting Amelia's honor; secretly, he finds her irresistible, and the thought of indulging his desire for her is too tempting to ignore.

As Boone and Amelia forge a fragile bond, something goes terribly wrong—and it will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle for Amelia to discover who she is destined to love.

Two other romances you might find interesting are:

Christmas With The Duchess by Tamara Lejeune and The Christmas Knight by Michele Sinclair

So Break out a little mistletoe and grab a Christmasy romance to enjoy by the fire!

Happy Holiday Reading, Ya'll!
