Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, naughty heroes nipping at your neck. Yes, the holiday season is quickly approaching. For many, there is already a nip in the air and with that comes thoughts of new romance reads set during the Christmas season.
Author Christi Snow recently posted a comment to Goodreads about her love for Christmas Romance Reads. We both shared with each other the books that are on our lists this year with the holiday season theme. I think I can speak for all the ladies here at Fiction Vixen that we always enjoy when one of our posts generates book recommendations from fellow readers. So here is my list and I would love to know what you will be reading, naughty or nice this Christmas season. 😉
Amy’s Christmas Naughty/Nice list
The Trouble With Cowboys by Melissa Cutler ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR **
I had no clue when I purchased this on release day that it had a Christmastime setting. Hot Christmas Cowboys, yes I’m definitely moving this up the TBR!
Operation Endgame by Christi Snow ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR **
Ms. Snow states that in between the psycho stalker scenes there are some sweet, romantic Christmas scenes mixed in. Sounds like romantic suspense with a mistletoe twist!
Naughty and Nice: Three Holiday Treats by Ruthie Knox, Molly O’Keefe and Stefanie Slone ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR **
I’m not a big anthology reader but Ruthie Knox has a story in this naughty number so I will make an exception and how can you resist the Santa suit on this cover!
O Come All Ye Kinky by Joey W. Hill, Ava March, L.A. Witt and more…** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony *RipTide* GR**
This is another anthology I will make an exception for not only because Joey W. Hill and L.A. Witt are contributors but 20% of all proceeds from this book will be donated to the Domestic Violence Project of the National Leather Association-International.
Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR**
‘Tis the Season for double seduction. I have this hot little read on my review list and it promises a naughty and not so saintly Nick as well as enough heat to melt a snowman.
Came Upon A Midnight Clear by Katie Porter ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR **
This contemporary M/M read is set in London during the holiday season and is a story of second chance love. The blurb also mentions naughty references to candy canes. Oh yeah, this one is going on my wishlist.
What Happens at Christmas by Victoria Alexander ** AMZ * BN * Kobo * Sony * GR **
Catherine is a fan of Ms. Alexander and recently reviewed this historical release. If you are looking for a lighter, fun read with a Christmas setting and enjoy historical romance, this sounds like a great pick.
So tell us what Christmas reads are on you wish list for 2012?
Please note: I’ve included search links for Amazon, BN, Sony and Kobo however all books may not be available at those stores or the books may be Amazon only publications. I hope you’ll find some great book deals!
