Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop & Contest

During the busy holiday season, I reach for a good book as a way to de-stress and unwind. Jaci Burton’s Kent family series (All She Wants for Christmas, A Rare Gift, and The Best Thing) is a particular favorite of mine. Each novella is part of Carina Press’s annual Holiday anthology, but they can be purchased individually. And because I also enjoy some smokin’ hot male/male lovin’ too (yes I like my books both naughty & nice ;)), I have to include K.A. Mitchell’s Wish List in my list of favorite holiday stories. This novella is part of the Red Hot Holiday anthology, but it can also be purchased individually as well. (Click on the book titles for more information.)

Now it’s your turn. Do you have a favorite holiday book? Don’t forget to leave your e-mail address along with your comment to be entered in the drawing for the Grand Prizes (see below). Complete contest rules are below.

    My favorite holiday book is a Christmas Story by Jean Shepard. He narrates the movie that’s based on the story,

  2. Probably Summit City Christmas by Ethan Day. You’d probably have to read the other two books in the series first though. I just love Boone, hehe.

    Happy holidays, Kathy ^.^

    My favorite Christmas books are Darn Good Cowboy Christmas by Carolyn Brown and Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish by Grace Burrowes. Thanks for the giveaway.

    My current favorite is Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas. I like the small town community it’s based in.

  5. Trix

    M/M is always my favorite, too! (I always appreciate the m/m reviews and giveaways here, and I need to check WISH LIST out.) My favorites are all m/m: THE CHRISTMAS WAGER by Jamie Fessenden, Mitchell’s AN IMPROPER HOLIDAY, and 7 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS by Nicole Dennis.


  6. Joelle Mendes

    My favorite holiday book is The Present by Johanna Lindsey. It’s an oldie but a goodie. There’s nothing like a good Malory family story!

  7. Jess1

    I can’t think of a specific favorite one, except that I have Regency Christmas Anthologies that are oldies but goodies favorites.

    It sad to say but at this very moment I can’t think of one. Man that is sad. It’s just been a really not great week and I’m trying to de-stress right now.
