I like reading Christmas romances during the month of December and would like to hear about any new ones that are out this year, or ones that you really enjoy.  Please share them with me!  Thanks.  :)

There's a new anthology called A Very Merry Christmas.  I think it's new anyway. I think it might also be WL.

Edited: it's not a WL book. I just posted one.

You could try www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ for a list of the newest releases. Check by Author even. I think Debbie Macomber usually has Christmas romance books each year.

hmm..there's a  couple of thanksgiving ones I like..one by evanovich called 'thanksgiving' seems like! very creative..and an older harlequin love and laughter by vicki lewis thompson 'stuck with you' that someone posted looking for the title last year and it sounded good so I got it too..and it's very cute.

the nights before christmas is a short romance that is very steamy and good. read this one a month or so ago and really enjoyed it.  if you like erotica lisa marie rice has several that take place around Christmas..the midnight series overlaps that time period and dangerous lover i think is the other book that's independent of those 3 stories. also ellora's cave (same publisher as rice's books) has 3 anthologies that are HOT!

I like debbie macomber's christmas angels ' goodness mercy' etc. can't remember the exact title. and there's one that linda howard has a story in about the mackenzie family - maris - and it's good esp if you've read the others in that series but even on it's on it's a good short story. also not much to do with chrsitmas other than it being during that time period!

I think suzanne brockmann's troubleshooters story has a christmas one otu though not sure how much focuses on teh holiday.

I've got the December Harlequin Blaze titles that I can't wait to get to.  I have got to finish a book for a swap first, though.

I just got debbie macomber's christmas one with 2 stories and both are reprints! I hadn't read them so no big deal for me but if you're a fan of hers beware they're reprinted. she tells you this but it's inside the book in her letter to the readers...christmas letters and an older one titled rainy day kisses. both were nice short reads.

If anyone recognizes this story - I have been looking for it for ages - it is a short story or novella in a Christmas compilation - it is called either The 12 Days of Christmas or The Twelve Gifts of Christmas or MAYBE My True Love Gave to Me and is about a young man who enlists the help of a dept store clerk to find his fiancee a gift that represents each of the items in the song The 12 Days of Christmas. Then the fiancee doesn't appreciate the romance of it and the man ends up marrying the clerk instead. It was a really good story. Does anyone have it or remember it?
