    I love the Regency Christmas Parties anthology. I love that historical time period.

  2. Kimberlyindy1

    I thought they all sounded good. I am always sucker for any Christmas or holiday books. A Valentine for Christmas by Reese Ryan caught my eye with a May/Dec romance with the woman being older.

  3. Tia

    A VALENTINE FOR CHRISTMAS by Reese Ryan. l always buy her books, so this one is a must for me, too.

    • Linda Woodfin

      SNOWBOUND IN HER BOSS’S BED by Marcella Bell caught my eye because its a Hanukkah story instead of Christmas.

  4. EC

    The books with childhood sweethearts, grumpy/sunshine, and workplace romance caught my interest because of the tropes.

  5. Marsha Graniel

    CHRISTMAS RANSOM by B.J. Daniels looks good – I enjoy some suspense with the romance

  14. Jennifer Shiflett

    A Valentine For Christmas sounds good. I love fake relationship tropes.

  15. Laurie Gommermann

    Regency Christmas parties-love historical romances, throw in a festive party the atmosphere is ripe for scandal!
    Snowbound In The Boss’s Bed-stranded, ( one of my favorite themes) work place romance and Hanukkah themed which is rare. My DIL is Jewish. I’m interested.
    Reece Ryan’s A Valentine For Christmas- fake May/Dec relationship with an older woman Mmm, sounds cute!
    BJ Daniels-Christmas Ransom- second chance with an ex rodeo/PI hero I’ve read several of her stories.
    His Christmas Guardian- SPIES! I haven’t read any mm romances. Willing to give it a try.

  16. Rita Wray

    SNOWBOUND IN HER BOSS’S BED by Marcella Bell sounds like a book I would like to read.

  17. Banana cake

    Snowbound in her boss’s bed sounds great. I love the forced proximity trope.

  18. Karina Angeles

    His Christmas Guardian because I love an opposite attraction and Christmas Ransom because I want to read how a cowboy can save the day!

  19. Debbie P

    These all sounds really good. I would like to read His Christmas Guardian. It sounds like an exciting read.

  20. Dianne Casey

    “Regency Christmas Parties” and “A Valentine For Christmas” both sound like great reads for the new year.

  21. Sharlene Wegner

    Regency Christmas Parties, since I love Christmas anthologies. Easy reading!

  22. Trudy Dowling

    Christmas Ransom by B.J. Daniels sounds interesting. It meets some of my favorite genres–cowboy, small town and second chance.

  23. Summer

    Snowbound in Her Boss’s Bed most caught my attention because it’s in part a Hanukkah story and there aren’t a lot of those.

  24. Glenda M

    Neither BJ Daniels nor Reese Ryan have ever disappointed me reading wise. All the books sound interesting but Marcella Bell’s Hannukah themed SNOWBOUND IN HER BOSS’S BED stands out since there are relatively few books that celebrate holidays other than Christmas.

  25. Latesha B.

    Annie Burrows, Lara Temple, Joanna Johnson and Marcella Bell are new to me authors. All of these books sound great, but I have been in a romantic suspense mood lately and His Christmas Guardian and Christmas Ransom really caught my eye.

    All of the holiday books look good. I especially want to read the anthology Regency Christmas Parties. I like reading historicals and learning about the clothing, customs, obligations, and traditions from that period.

  33. Patricia B.

    B. J. Daniels is a favorite author and I always look forward to her books. CHRISTMAS RANSOM sounds like it has all her trademark elements. Harlequin Intrigue and Suspense along with their Historicals are favorites. His Christmas Guardian by Cindy Dees sounds like a good suspenseful read. REGENCY CHRISTMAS PARTIES anthology will fit very nicely with my reading. The authors are favorites and I always keep anthologies handy. When busy, they are the best solution when I just need a good read but don’t have much time.

  34. Shannon Capelle

    Christmas Ransom by BJ Daniels sounds so good and i love her books!!
