The Psycho Before Christmas by Michelle Hercules

Everyone thinks I’m the perfect daughter, a model student, and the star of the track team. But when an asshole hurts me, he’ll find out I have a darker side.

Then my plan of retaliation is foiled by Killer Santa, a psychopath who offed my ex before I could.

I spent a year hating him for denying me my revenge. I couldn’t have foreseen that the killer who terrorized our hometown days before Christmas was none other than my stepbrother, a sinfully gorgeous pain in my ass.

I hadn’t seen him since we left for colleges on opposite sides of the country. Now we’re back under the same roof, and all the feelings I suppressed return with a vengeance. Eric is my only weakness.

But it turns out we’re not the only monsters in town. Someone is hunting us, and it’s kill or be killed.

Sounds like a good Christmas to me.

*Author’s note: Stay away if you don’t love unhinged heroes with stabbing tendencies. This novella contains dark themes.

 

Pucking All The Way by Michelle Hercules

I’ve always been the optimistic, glass-half-full kind of girl, and I even have the name to match: Sunshine.

But when I catch my fiancé screwing one of my bridesmaids an hour before our wedding, I can’t see the bright side.

Humiliated, I run away and rent a cabin in the woods. I just want to be alone.

But fate has other ideas. It turns out the cabin was double-booked, and now I’m sharing the place with a broody pro hockey player who is as thrilled about my presence as I am about his.

I agree to leave the next morning, but the worst storm in decades hits the mountain, snowing us in.

Trapped, there’s nothing to do but make the best of the situation—that is, if Cody Fairchild will let me. He’s the most infuriating man I’ve ever met… and also the sexiest.

Quickly, it becomes clear that there are only two possible outcomes: I’ll smother him in his sleep, or I’ll screw his brains out. The question is, in what order?

 

A Very Merry Mistake by Lyra Parish

A sexy cinnamon-roll lumberjack offers me a ride into town, a stay at his cozy cabin, and eventually his bed. All things I can’t refuse.

After several flirty glances and heated mistletoe kisses, we create rules: no strings attached and no falling in love. Agreeing to the impossible might be my biggest mistake yet.

I visited the small town for one reason only: to prove a point to my father.
Now I’ve got a fake boyfriend.
A secret to keep hidden.
And a choice to make that will determine more than just my future.

If you’re searching for a spicy holiday romance with a protective cinnamon-roll lumberjack and sassy heroine, this book is for you! A Very Merry Mistake is a standalone with a sweet-as-gingerbread happily ever after. This small-town contemporary romance has a dash of grumpy/sunshine, forced proximity, secret identity, and tons of Southern goodness. Fade to black is NOT included!

 

It’s Complicated by J.S. Cooper

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

A steamy and hilarious holiday treat from New York Times Bestseller J. S. Cooper

Santa baby, I’ve really been an awful bad girl…

If the city ever decides to put a sign on my front door, it will say, “Good Girl Gone Bad.” This year I am definitely on Santa’s naughty list and it’s not even my own fault. How was I supposed to know that when I asked for a boyfriend for Christmas, that my wish would be granted; with not one, but two suitors vying for my heart?

When one problem becomes two…
My two suitors are exact opposites. Lucas, the corporate hottie, wants me to spend Christmas Eve at his penthouse and Connor, the bad boy rockstar wants to take me to an isolated cabin on Christmas Day. I’ve agreed to both invitations. Hey, a girl has to explore her options.

The Christmas surprise I didn’t see coming…
And then everything went wrong. Because who couldn’t see this trainwreck coming; asides from me? Both guys wanted to see me on New Year’s Eve: each one sliding a naughty note under my door promising copious amounts of spiced eggnog and an even spicier night. The only problem was they’d both invited me to the same party. Turns out they were connected in a way I never saw coming.

It’s complicated doesn’t even begin to express my dilemma. The only thing I know is that at midnight, the fireworks going off aren’t just going to be in the sky.

 

I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight by Dr. Rebecca Sharp

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a hot holiday romcom that’s the perfect blend of naughty and nice…

Holly Jolly hates Christmas – ironic, she knows.

But she can’t turn down the opportunity to create San Francisco’s legendary, life-size gingerbread house. Surrounded by tinsled trees and merry mistletoe, Holly steps into her own nightmare before Christmas. Especially when her boss turns out to be a very sexy Saint Nick.

Saint Nicholsen never expected his new pastry chef to hate his favorite holiday—or to be so alluring. And when one conversation makes it clear there’s more to her story than the gorgeous grinch is letting on, Saint decides to grant her every missed Christmas wish.

Unfortunately for him, Holly doesn’t trust the holiday that’s only proved disastrous. She’s already taken out Santa, overdosed on eggnog, and almost toppled the tree—and that’s only this year.

But somewhere between presents and tree trimming, the magic of their attraction begins to melt her candy-coated confidence and open her hurt-wrapped heart.

When Christmas Eve rolls around with more than a kiss from her Christmas list, Saint will be her Santa tonight, but come tomorrow, will Holly take the leap and hold onto the magic?

Author’s Note: This grumpy grinch romcom is complete with an attempt on Santa’s life, an ornament that’s shaped very inappropriately, and some very steamy scenes of festive frolicking. Proceed with caution.

 

Mistletoe Mistake (Greetings From Avondale, #1) by Amali Rose

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

I hate Christmas.

Before you scream bah humbug, let me explain: my birthday is December 25th.

Birthdays were largely ignored, and the holiday lost its luster before I hit double digits. I didn’t get a birthday party—instead, my parents spent their energy planning a huge Christmas party.

So when the annual Christmas party rolls around again, it’s nothing more than an obligation to endure.

Until this year. Because this year, Nick O’Connor will be there. Bad boy extraordinaire. Brutally beautiful, he’s the strong and silent type. Also, my brother’s best friend.

When he finds me under the mistletoe, he might just convince me to fall in love with Christmas after all.

And him too, while I’m at it.

Holiday Hookup by S.A. Clayton

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

I never thought I’d be divorced and a single mother before I turned thirty. But life had other plans.

I was content with my life. Being a mom to Jaxon, working as a legal assistant, and hanging out with my best friend.

Then I met Dane Thompson.

Lead singer of Blanked Edge and my new neighbor.

The man looks way too delicious in those tight shirts and baggy jeans, with eyes that seem to sear into my very soul.

And when my apartment floods and he asks us to move in for a few days, I find myself saying yes.

Is it a good idea?

Probably not.

Do I do it anyway regardless of the way he makes me squirm with just a look?

Of course.

Nothing at all can go wrong….right? 

Just One Kiss by J. Saman

ღ♡ AVAILABLE NOW ♡ღ

The heart wants what it wants and mine has never stopped wanting her.

London Canterbury and I were never meant to be.
Her family was rich. She was cheer captain. The most popular girl in our school while I was the opposite. Poor, nerdy, and invisible.

Eight years ago, I kissed the hell out of her, knowing I was never going to see her again.

Or so I thought.

Because here I am, rescuing none other than London who crashed her car into a tree in the middle of a blizzard.
Right before Christmas.

Now she’s stuck in my house. In my head. Back in my heart before I ever have a chance to stop it.

As the storm intensifies outside so does the fire between us.
Despite all that, I know this is too good to last. That eventually, the storm will end, and she’ll leave.

But losing her is no longer an option.

I’m hoping that sometimes all it takes to fall in love is just one kiss…

Just One Kiss is a fun and steamy, holiday, second chance romance! It is a complete standalone.

Tangled Up In Christmas (Texas Heat, #2) by Lisa Renee Jones

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

I might be a country girl from the same small town of Sweetwater, Texas, as horse wrangler Roarke Frost, the girl next door who knows him like few know him, but I didn’t know enough to save my heart.

He’s the reason why I left Sweetwater behind.

But now fate proves she loves a wicked twist and sends me back to Sweetwater to pull together a Christmas festival—and I run smack into the man again, quite literally. His body is pressed to mine, his hands on my arms, and I’m melting like chocolate in the sizzling Texas sunshine. And I run.

I know it’s not exactly respectable, but it works, just not for long. No matter how much I try to get tangled up in Christmas, I end up tangled up in Roarke instead—and the man has me feeling the heat of our attraction and the warmth of our past friendship. He feels like Mr. Right, but history says he’s Mr. Wrong.

But if he wants a second chance, Roarke Frost is going to have to work for it. He’ll need to prove to me that this holiday is a season of new beginnings, the kind that last forever.

Christmas Doings (Rebel Wayfarers MC) by MariaLisa deMora

💗 BOOK REVIEW 💗

Ester has become adept at taking what life handed her and figuring out how to make the best of a bad situation. Lemonade made from lemons with a quick twist of the wrist and judicious application of whatever sweetener happened to be at hand. Dogs, birds, kids, and every day being Bonesday—these were the best in the history of everything when it came to making her happy.

And when her old man—a big bad biker named Bones—is on a mission to give her everything she ever wanted, she quickly learns to accept the inevitable and hold on for the ride.

Along the way, there are club whores, pups, ride-or-die brothers, and tiny humans. And love. So much love. Is there a better kind of holiday story than one of true love?

I might be a former party girl and the over-indulged daughter of a multi-millionaire, but for the last few years I’ve been trying to be work hard and be good. I have enough right now to deal with–graduate school, my community literacy program, preparations for Christmas, and my dad’s constant attempts to find me a husband. I definitely don’t want to put up with Henry always hanging around, acting obnoxious and looking far too sexy. 

My boss forced me to take on Henry as a literacy volunteer for the month of December. I don’t know anything about him except he’s from somewhere in Europe, and he’s spoiled, entitled, arrogant, stubborn… and incredibly hot. He’s the kind of guy I’ve been trying to stay away from. Plus he’s got a secret–something he’s hiding from me. 

Now I can’t think of anything but him, and I’m stuck with him until Christmas is over.
