Charles Dickens – A Christmas Carol

Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean, miserable, bitter old man with no friends. One cold Christmas Eve, three ghosts take him on a scary journey to show him the error of his nasty ways. By visiting his past, present and future, Scrooge learns to love Christmas and the people all around him.

It’s always lovely to revisit this classic holiday tale and be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas!

S.R. Mitchell – Bewitched by Christmas

Love was always just out of reach for Allie. The fact that she has to hide a part of herself, her magical side, does not help. She’d accepted the fact that maybe she would not find Mister Right, but her witchy Aunt Margret has not given up hope.

Little does she know; her Aunt has cast a spell for her soul mate to find his way to her. He’s everything she finds attractive in a man and she’s everything he thinks unattainable in a woman.

There is just one catch… someone is after him. Someone wants him dead and Allie finds herself thrown in the mix.

Will they find love for Christmas?

This was a really fun and magical read.  It’s fast paced and offers romance and suspense with a bit of comedy thrown in.

A Grosvenor Square Christmas

Four breathtakingly romantic tales of a Regency Christmas from four bestselling romance authors.

Down through the years, enchantment touches a tall gray house in Grosvenor Square. The legend of Lady Winterson’s Christmas ball promises true love and happiness to one lucky couple. Who will feel the magic this winter?

This anthology includes:

  • The Seduction of a Duchess by Shana Galen

You’re invited to join the whirling dance at Lady Winterson’s sparkling Christmas ball, where miracles happen and true love shines forever. How can you resist?

I love a Regency Romance and these stories are sure to bring a smile to your face while dancing and romancing you into the holiday season!

David S. Scott – Santa’s Son

What do you think of when you picture elves? Could they be real? What about other fantasy beings? What about… Santa Claus?

Shawn is accustomed to living life the way he wants to. He has no responsibilities, no one to answer to. He comes and goes as he pleases, traveling the world, looking for fulfillment.

But all that is about to change…

Santa’s sick and getting old. This year, he’ll be replaced by his son. Will you be on the naughty list?

***Due to graphic sex scenes, this book is intended for mature audiences. 18+ only, please***

This story really has it all from family traditions, Christmas gnomes, holiday magic, lots of milk and cookies as well as an elf who may be a bit on the naughty side!

If you are looking for a fun holiday book with some smokin’ hot scenes to satisfy your naughty side I highly recommend Santa’s Son!

 

My honorable mentions (And only because you really need to have read the series in order to fully appreciate these books)  Dannika Dark absolutely thrilled her readers when she gifted us with these holiday novellas so we could catch up with our favorite characters from the Mageri Series and the Seven Series.

The Gift

Despite a powerful snowstorm that has shut down the city, Silver and the Mageri crew are preparing to spend a peaceful holiday at home, surrounded by family, food, and merriment. But the party comes to an abrupt end when Logan receives an unexpected call, one that forces him to make a life-changing decision that could affect his relationship with Silver forever. Can they find the courage to weather the storm?

Lives are at risk in this compelling and heartwarming story about the remarkable journey of love.

THE MAGERI SERIES is an exciting urban fantasy romance about a young woman’s claim to immortality. Passionate, humorous, dark, and full of unpredictable twists, the Mageri series will take you on an unforgettable journey of love, friendship, and the hidden power within us all. Cliffhanger-free.

 

Winter’s Moon

The Weston pack waited until the last minute to prepare for Christmas. Spirits are low, and now they’re in a scramble when a freak snowstorm knocks out the power. Despite bickering among packmates and the threat of rogues, the family is determined to make this a memorable Christmas.

But when an important family member goes missing, the pack is galvanized into action. Time is running out, and the temperature is dropping fast.

Winter Moon is a bonus novella that takes place after the final book in the series, One Second.

THE SEVEN SERIES is a paranormal romance that portrays Shifters living in secret in the modern world. A blend of humor, heartwarming romance, drama, and real-life issues. This series is for those who believe in family, second chances, and finding that person who completes you.
