I have several on my bookshelf that I've read enough times... I'm wanting to find a few new ones.

Julie I bumped up a Christmas Romance thread. It has some good suggestions.

I like reading them! some barely seem to mention the holiday though! it it weren't for the tree on the cover it'd be just like anything else!

Not me.  My favorite holidays are Easter and Thanksgiving since they are spent with family and over in a day.  Christmas is three months of stress and big commercial buildup followed by a big let down, so I cringe when I enter a store before Thanksgiving and hear carols and see Xmas decorations.  The last thing I'd want to do is prolong the experience with holiday romances

 

However, I did read one "holiday" romance that I really enjoyed --  "Naughty or Nice" by Melanie George.  Very emotional, tortured hero and very steamy.  Read it in summer so it didn't bother me so much.

I enjoy them, even though MY holiday is Chanukkah.  I have two very old Chanukkah romances that are pretty cheesy but all I've ever been able to find.

One is called Season Of Light (Harlequin Superromance, No 528).  I can't think of the name of the other offhand.  If anyone knows of any others, I'd love to know about them!
