It’s that time again! I love this time of year; it’s getting cooler, the nights are getting longer, and the holiday books are starting to come out. This year the majority of my holiday reading is cozy mystery, but there are a few Regency romances in there too. I’m sure I’ll add to this as some of the Harlequins will come out in November, but for now, I have:
Twas The Knife Before Christmas by Jacquline Frost. I read the other in this series at Christmas last year and saved this one till this Christmas. I was hoping for another in the series, but so far nada ☹
Silent Night, Deadly Night by Vicki Delany. I have read the rest of the Year-Round Christmas series and love it. Great characters, great storytelling and Christmas! What else can a girl ask for?
Tide and Punishment by Bree Baker. I read the other two stories in the series this summer and really enjoyed them. Actually, I love everything by this author. She also writes as Jaqueline Frost, Julie Chase, and Julie Ann Lindsey.
and speaking of Julie Ann Lindsey… Apple Cider Slaying by Julie Ann Lindsey. This is the first book or a brand new series by this author.
Christmas Cow Bells by Molly Cox Bryan. I admit I much prefer first person point of view for my mysteries, but this premise sounds great so I’m going to give it a try. It is also the start of a new series.
Christmas Revels VI. I love love love these anthologies! I own all 6 and will continue to buy them as long as the authors publish them. I highly recommend them!
The Merry Viscount by Sally Mackenzie. This is the second book in the series. I loved the first one and several other stories by Sally MacKenzie.
Seduction on a Snowy Night by Mary Jo Putney, Sabrina Jeffries and Madeline Hunter. This should be good! Three really awesome Regency authors and snow. I mean hseriesouly snow! What is not to love. I hear my northern friends groaning now, but I can’t help it as a Texan who never gets snow, I’m obsessed! I want snow! so at least I can fantasize about it while reading.
Christmas in Evergreen by Nancy Naigle. A small town romance. I love small town romances and the cover has an old truck and snow… Enough said.
Home In Time For Christmas & An Angel For Christmas by Heather Graham. Heather Graham’s historicals were some of the first romances I read. And she is still a great author. One of these stories is a time travel and I can’t wait to read it!
It’s not Christmas, but I’ve read the first two books and really enjoyed them… Jealousy Filled Donuts by Ginger Bolton.
Now all I need is cold weather, a nice fire in the fireplace, some cozy socks, hot tea and my Kindle! And my muse! I vow here and now I am going to eventually write a holiday romance.
So tell me dear readers, what holiday romances, or other stories, are on your list this season?
