Never fall in love with a Grinch—especially at Christmas…

Taison has learned to shield his heart, by pretending he doesn’t have one. Ever since getting jilted two years ago, he’s built up walls ten hay bales high.

But Cassie won’t let him be the grump he wants to be—not when she needs his help to win a crucial scholarship. In exchange, Cassie will help his Christmas tree farm have its biggest season yet. But working with Cassie is driving him to distraction. And making his heart feel ten sizes too big…

Cassie solves problems. And right now, her biggest problem is trying to make Taison relax and enjoy the holidays. With Christmas right around the corner, she can almost see this sexy cowboy’s heart melting right before her eyes. But for some reason, the closer she tries to get to Taison, the more he pulls away.

Maybe Taison isn’t a problem to solve. Maybe, just maybe, he’s the solution to her lonely heart. Assuming she can get him to admit how he really feels.

Cowboy’s Christmas Girlfriend by Leslie North

Posted September 12, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, Booksprout, Christmas Romance, Contemporary Romance, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

One lie leads to another… But will their hearts reveal the truth?

It was just a little white lie… To promote her new book, romance writer Suzanna Jacobs told her publisher that she lived on a cattle ranch. Problem is, now they want to send a publicity team for a visit, and Suzanna has never set foot on a ranch. For months she’s been emailing single dad rancher Will Carson for information, insight—and friendship.

Luckily, Will has a plan. He’ll “loan” her his ranch. But in return, he needs her to pretend to be his girlfriend for his best friend’s wedding, and the family’s annual Christmas Games. When Suzanna arrives, she’s shocked to discover Will is tall, lean, and drop-dead gorgeous. Meanwhile, she’s short, curvy, and suffers from low self-esteem. Who would believe they’re a couple?

Will is determined to show her the ropes of ranching, but Suzanna is a fish out of water. An adorable fish—one he’s wildly attracted to. And he’s falling for her, hard. But the more successful their deception becomes, the more he begins to wonder…

If Suzanna is so good at faking it, is anything they’re sharing real?

It’s The Most Wonderful Time…

Posted August 1, 2022 by Marsha in Christmas Romance, Discussion / 0 Comments

Do you know what today is?  No?  Well, it’s August 1st, and… the Christmas Romance ARCs are starting to show up!

Yep!  Be still my grateful heart.  I can (and do) read Christmas Romance all year long.  So probably in late August or early September, you should expect to start seeing Christmas-related reviews here.

My problem is that I pick up so many Christmas Romances that I’m still reading and reviewing throughout January (at least)!

Christmas Week Countdown!

Posted December 18, 2021 by Marsha in Christmas Romance, Discussion / 0 Comments

I don’t know how this Christmas Season has gotten away from me, but here we are one week away from Christmas — and here I am with so many Christmas titles still unread due to lack of time, I’m always running out of time never books though.

I’ll do my best to get as many titles reviewed (I’ve binge read even when not posting) this last week until Christmas 2021, but the truth is that I’ll probably be listing Christmas romances up to Valentine’s Day.  *sigh*  Yeah.  I have a lot of books, Christmas romance books.

Fingers crossed that I find better time/life management in 2022… yeah, I don’t think so either but I’m going to try!

Merry Christmas Romance Reading!

Madeleine Joy is feeling more meh than merry. When an Icelandic volcano erupts six days before Christmas, hazardous ash congests European airspace, canceling flights indefinitely—including the thirtysomething’s connection to Paris. Stranded alone in London, separated from her sister, and with the devastating one-year anniversary of her best friend’s tragic death just days away, Madeleine has never felt less festive. And as if things couldn’t get worse, the cute guy driving the cab to her hotel won’t shut up about carolers and tinsel…

A former music journalist, he’s embraced his love for London by starting his own black cab business, enthusiastically ferrying passengers from one historic landmark to another. But life hasn’t always been easy for Julian. Having navigated several life-changing setbacks including a cruel betrayal by his former fiancée, Julian remains hopeful that he’ll meet somebody kind, who shares his love of music, his corgi named Winnie, and of course, the magic of Christmas time in London.

Despite being an unlikely match, fate seems determined to throw them together. But can the grieving American find joy again in a world where the lights have all but dimmed?
