    Hmmm…am on a roll and just downloaded I’M YOUR SANTA/Lori Foster, etc., SANTA BABY/Julie Cruise, etc., and TWAS THE NIGHT/Sandra Hill, etc. to my Kindle.

    Hey, it’s a snow day and I’m not going out if I can at all avoid it!

  4. 4

    A holiday read I thoroughly enjoyed was The Heart of Christmas. It’s an anthology featuring stories by Mary Balogh, Nicola Cornick, and Courtney Milan. All three stories were wonderful. :)

  5. 5

    I have loved The Christmas Box Trilogy for years. While the books may not be “romantic” per se, the love theme is wonderful! Another favorite was Silver Bells by Luanne Rice. This year I am really looking forward to a bit more of a saucier read! I’m looking forward to reading everything in this collection! Great contest! I’m looking forward to discovering authors I’ve never read before!

    I just bought a new Christmas anthology of short Christmas stories called “Believe” with Amy Leblance/Margaret Ethridge and more. (not Lauren Dane’s Believe although I have that on preorder for Kindle as well) It was only 2.99 from Amazon and I just loved all the stories. It totally got me in the mood for some Christmas romance.

    My favorite Christmas story, even though it is not really a romance is The Christmas Pearl by Dorothea Benton Frank.

    Shiloh Tolbert says:

    I was never a huge romance reader, I’ve always loved PRN, until my mother-in-law bought me Debbie Macomber’s The Snow Bride for my first christmas with my husband. After that it has been a yearly tradition where she buys me the newest Debbie Macomber christmas novel. I love my christmas romances! (Althought my favorites are still PNR, I’ll never pass up a Debbie Macomber christmas novel!)

    Lori T says:

    OMG, what a great collection of books. Love to win any of them. Would be a great addition to my ever growing collection of books. Would love to win the kindle as it would cut down on the ever shrinking book space. Thanks ladies for all the enjoyable hours of reading you have given me and your readers.

    Trish Dechant says:

    I am just finishing up a Christmas anthology with Roxanne St. Claire and a few others. It’s Called “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”…what I liked about this book is the fact that it throws a bit of magic in it, which makes it like a fairy tale. It also puts me in the Christmas spirit…Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  22. 22

    I absolutely love this season and reading holiday anthologies. Not only are these authors some of my favorites, I just read Carina Press’ other winter anthology, Winter Wishes and loved it!

    Also, so ready to find out the next part of Rori’s and Jude’s story from Lauren Dane…

  23. 23

    Carlie A. says:

    Hi Jaci!

    I have a niece named Jacey. Close.

    Anyway, my faves are Christmas Kisses by Linda Howard and Snow Bride by Debbie Macomber. Those are my classics!

    For newer fare, I’d go with…Vampire for Christmas by Felicity Heaton. That should really warm up the holidays!

    Thanks for the fun contest!

  25. 25
    Julie C. says:

    Christmas Kisses by Linda Howard! But am looking for a new Christmas read, like your new anthology!!

  26. 26
    Amy Kathryn says:

    I love all the Christmas anthologies out, they provide a short, holiday themed break in amongst the hustle and bustle. My favorites are usually the historicals that remind me of simpler, less commercial pleasures of the season. A Regency Christmas and the Heart of Christmas are ones I just finished.

    Thanks for the contest and am looking forward to reading the Carina anthologies!

    Jaci & Co…you guys are too awesome!

    I am coveting Lauren Willig’s, The Mischief of the Mistletoe and Mary Balogh’s, A Christmas Promise and Naughty & Nice anthology!

    Thanks you so much for this contest(s).

    Julie says:

    I just bought The Magical Christmas Cat anthology, mostly for Nalini Singh’s novella, but I’m hoping the other ones are just as good!

    Aprylle says:

    Hi Jaci! My cousin’s name is Jaycee, it’s interesting how many different spellings there are! I’m looking forward to Naughty&Nice, but one of my favorite holiday books was the Silent Night anthology. I’m rooting for Naughty&Nice to beat it out! Thanks for hosting this contest!

  33. 33
    Ilona says:

    Thanks for a great Contest and congratulations on the new books :D

  34. 34
    Sabrina says:

    The book I recommend is not a holiday romance but it still fits to this time of the year. “The princess in his bed” by Lila DiPasqua containes three classic fairy tales but told in a very sexy and sensual way. I think fairy tales and christmas just fit together.

  35. 35
    Ina S. says:

    I loved A Highlander Christmas by Janet Chapman and I can’t wait to read your newest releases!!!

  36. 36
    SusiSunshine says:

    What a great contest!

    I haven’t really read any holiday romances, but I did read Snowbound by Larissa Ione recently and enjoyed it. It’s not set at Christmas, but it’s full of winter goodness.

    I also can’t wait to get my hands on the Naughty and Bice Bundle.

  40. 40
    jeanette8042 says:

    I recently just bought Jennifer Haymore’s A Season of Seduction and can’t wait to read it!

    There are probably more but I can’t think of them at the moment

  45. 45
    Susan R says:

    These books sound awesome! I love christmas anthologys – they realy put me in the spirit. Hot for the Holdiays was my fav last year – good stories. And for some reason my 12 year old daughter is obsessed with the candy cane on the cover. Glad she doesn;t get the symbolism yet!! LOL

    I also love Debbie Macomber’s christmas stories – they always put me in the mood for the holidays.

  46. 46

    I love any christmas story to tell you the truth. Christmas is such a magical time of year and it comes across in each christmas story you read. I am trying my best not to buy every christmas book I lay eyes on. And its really hard ;)

    Stacy McCoy says:

    As dorky as it sounds I love “A Christmas Carol”; however, I cannot wait until “Naughty and Nice” comes out.

    Hi There!
    I’ve read Naughty and Nice and a review for it should be up on my website next week (I haven’t decided which day yet :) ) I’m currently reading Twas the Night also from Carina, it’s a good read. I have Highlander Christmas on it’s way in the mail and I’ve heard good things about it!

  62. 62
    Chelsea B. says:

    You should definitely check out the Highlander Christmas anthology with Sophie Renwick and Cindy Miles and another author who’s name I can’t recall. All three stories are very romantic!

  63. 63

    The first Christmas in the In Death by JD Robb where Eve could not figure out what to buy her millionaire husband.

    Jennifer D. says:

    Hello,

    When I was in school, one of my favorite holiday stories was The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry. I also re-read my copy of a “Gift of Love” – a Christmas anthology featuring Judith McNaught (one of my all time faves).

  67. 67
    Oriela J says:

    One of my favorite holiday romance read would have to be Glory, Glory by Linda Lael Miller.

    My favorite holiday romantic read is Courtney Milan’s “This Wicked Gift” in The Heart of Christmas anthology. Her writing blew me away, and her heroine’s holiday spirit was infectious.

  72. 72
    Donna S says:

    I really enjoyed Home in Time for Christmas by Heather Graham. And Im looking forward to reading the Magical Christmas Cat soon.

    And I am sooooooo looking forward to release day!

  75. 75
    GladysMP says:

    I would recommend “A Christmas Gift” by Diane Craver. I was flabbergasted when my hubby picked up this book and read it and declared it to be, “Outstanding.” He had never read one of my books before although he reads his own books nightly. I heard him laughing and asked what he was laughing about and he replied, “This book I’m reading.” It was later when he came into the room where I was at my computer and explained that the book he had been reading was Diane’s book. I feel that the title just caught his eye.

  76. 76
    Linda Henderson says:

    My annual holiday re-read is Shirley, Goodness and Mercy by Debbie Macomber. It’s one of my favorite holiday reads. I am waiting to get Kissing Santa Claus anthologies by Donna Kauffman, Jill Shalvis and Helen Kay Dimon.

    What a great contest!! I am really looking forward to reading all these great stories. One of my favorites is Mackenzie’s Magic…I sure do love those Mackenzies! I, also, really enjoy Richard Paul Evans’ stories…The Christmas Box always reminds me of my Grandma who first gave me the story.

  80. 80
    Amy B. says:

    Hot spiced chocolate and some new, hot spicy reads? One of my favorite ways to pass the long cold winter nights. Good luck to all! Happy holidays!

  81. 81
    MG Braden says:

    Oddly enough the only Christmas book I can even recall right now is Shannon Stacey’s In the Spirit, which I thought was quite fun. I know I’ve read other Christmas romance, most likely Harlequins, which I used to love to read.

  82. 82
    Michelle B says:

    I’ve been looking for some good holiday reads myself! The only one I can think of right now is A Wallflower Christmas. I read it in hardcover and now it’s out in paperback.

    Terri H says:

    All She Wants for Christmas sounds great – I can’t wait to read it! As for other holiday stories I’m considering, there is one by Candace Sams called The Sleigh Maker that sounds cute. The hero is Santa’s sleigh maker, and the heroine is an elf.

  91. 91
    Valerie says:

    Wow, great contest.

    Gertrud Conoy says:

    Oh – love holiday reads. although not so much romance in that one, but audiobook version of Janet Evanovich’s “Visions of Sugar Plum” is usually my start into december. Usually doing a lot of christmas related audiobook stuff throughout december, because I have so many hours at work during this time that I just wanna close my eyes on the train home, which makes reading rather difficult. :D

    Great contest 6 all the best for the release.

    This contest is great, and I can not wait to read your latest!

    I liked The Magic of a Family Christmas by Susan Meier – I actually just finished it :)

  101. 101
    Limecello says:

    Congratulations on the upcoming release! Also – holiday romances? I love a bunch of the old categories and also Brava anthologies – all those “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Kissing Santa Claus” et all. Otherwise… uh… :X aside from this anthology not so many are on my radar. I love re-reading though.

  102. 102

    Congrats Jaci!

    My favorites are definitely those older Brava holiday anthologies. I haven’t picked up the new one for this year, but they are always fun.

    Another one that I absolutely loved last year was Courtney Milan’s short story This Wicked Gift in the anthology with Mary Balogh that came out last year. I LOVED this story because it was a historical, but about the average person and their struggles not a titled aristocrat or wealthy person like so many historicals feature.

    One of the best things about the giveaway despite the prizes was to see what everyone else listed…which helped me pick out quite a few that I’ve missed :)

  103. 103
    elizabeth g says:

    Although I haven’t read many Christmas stories, I guess my favorite would be a short story I read about a boy who wanted to buy his dying mother a pair of red shoes for christmas, but didn’t have enough money, and the man he meets in his quest.

    It’s a beautiful story, and brings the true spirit of Christmas.

  104. 104
    cathyf says:

    My favorite Christmas book is “To Do List”
    by Lauren Dane. Looking forward to next week’s release.

    Lindsey Ekland says:

    Have not read any Christmas stories this year though I look for the Regency collections Harlequin produces.

  106. 106
    Lori says:

    I’m generally not a huge fan of the “Christmas” story, only because they tend to be anthologies, and I don’t buy a ton of them – I have to like all the authors in an antho. But I do like them if Christmas isn’t the sole focus. There are several that I’ve read that I liked:
    In the Spirit from Shannon Stacey (love her humor!)
    Blaze always puts out an antho for New Year’s that I always like.
    Several very naughty m/m Hanukkah romances as well. (How come Hanukkah romances are so damn hard to find?)

    Thanks for a great contest!

  107. 107
    Lori says:

    Oops, meant to say that I AM looking forward to all of the books in this contest – all from authors I love!

    I’m really looking forward to Naughty and Nice and plan to download and read that when I’m stuck at home all day!

    My favorite holiday stories that I reread are A Very Merry Christmas
    Merry Christmas Baby
    The Night Before Christmas
    (all Lori Foster et. all short story anthologies) I’m a sucker for contemporary Christmas novellas. :)

    This is such an awesome contest. I can’t think of any Christmas stories that are re-reads for me, however I do love the Gift of the Magi, it’s a classic.

    The only thing I remember reading was a christmas Anthology last year with Lora Leigh and Anya Bast in it, Hot for the Holidays. The candy cane on the front – YUM!!

    I just bought the Blaze collection ‘It Must Have Been the Mistletoe…’ because I read about the um ‘toys’ in Tawny Weber’s story.

    My favorite Christmas collection is ‘A Stockingful of Joy’ published by Onyx in 1997 with stories by Jill Barnett, Mary Jo Putney, Justine Dare, and Susan King. They’re all historical romance and I’m sure this collection is sadly out of print but I love each story in it.

    I’ve been told Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich is a good read. I’m looking forward to reading more romance. I’ve been interested in reading more than just scifi lately.

    I’ve been eyeing Santa Baby by Roslyn Hardy Holcomb (as well as the rest of her backlist). I’m also planning on getting the Carina holiday bundles _and_ working my way through the free reads Samhain’s offering.

    Christmas Kiss or Christmas Heat….all time favorite Christmas themed stories. Written by Lora Leigh and part of the Breed Series.

    I re-read them. I highly suggest if you are looking for a good read (that you didn’t write) and haven’t read them.

    Books I’m looking forward to….definitely your anthology….I plan to curl up with it and the cats to read.

    My 1st book: Bound By Christmas is a hot Christmas story and out Dec 19th with Cobblestone Press….I recommend that one for a good read too. ;o)

    Who doesn’t want to be Naughty and Nice at Christmastime? After all even Santa is both – naughty to make such a mess and nice to forget all the times we’ve been naughty!

    Sounds like the perfect book to pick up for Xmas for all our friends!

    Colleen Spencer says:

    Naughty and Nice sounds like a perfect Christmas holiday read. Lisa Kleypas’ Friday Harbor one sounds nice too as I’ve spent a romantic weekend w/ hubs there before.

    Kristy B says:

    I’m a fan of Debbie Macomber’s Christmas stories–I like something a little gentler this time of year.

    MrsBoots says:

    I am looking forward to this series, of course! I can’t say that I have a favorite holiday book because I tend to like them all but recently I enjoyed reading The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde.

    Can’t wait til December 6th!

    Elaine R says:

    It’s been forever and a day since I’ve read a romance book, especially one centered around the holidays. I currently read paranormal romance, and I can’t recall reading one re: the holidays. http://jaciburton.com/blog/wp-includes/images/smilies/0534.gif

    I want to read Welcome to Harmony, not holiday, but oh well.

    Pam Griffith says:

    I really don’t have a favorite holiday book. I read them all. I can’t wait until the Naughty and Nice book comes out.

    Dianne B says:

    Any romance is a good one to read this time of year. Curling up with a good book under a warm blanket is a great way to survive the snow.

    JennEJenn says:

    I don’t really seek out holiday themed books, a good romance book is always a gift to me. So this year thanks to a GoodReads Romance Readers Pick It for Me Challenge I found a new author to love – Shelly Laurenston. I am currently reading the 3rd book in the Pack Series, The Mane Attraction. Merry Christmas to me!

    Anne says:

    I know I’ve read a few, but can’t really remember the names, mostly anthologies.

    The Jingle Bell Rock anthology is the one I’d like to read this year (Kent/Foster/Kaufman et al).

    Michelle says:

    Fun contest! I like the In Death books, so Holiday in Death was a great book for me. I like to read novellas at Christmas, while listening to my Christmas music. :)

    Joder says:

    Since I’ve become a fan of the m/m genre I’m always on the lookout for good reads. I was excited to see Carina Press put out His for the Holidays which I think sounds great. I also just reviewed a Harlequin series book by Heather MacAllister called A Man for All Seasons which I really enjoyed.

    emmad says:

    Um I must say I normally avoid holiday romance stories :( I prefer the suspense and adventure ones.
    Guessing I’ve read some bad stories too as the ones I have read seem to cliche’d and play too much on the christmas spirit thing. Sigh and this from a person who loves christmas lol.

    Katie S. says:

    Honestly, I haven’t read a seasonal romance (either Halloween or Christmas) that I would recommend. I’m just not a fan. Bah-humbug?

  147. 147
    Joy K says:

    I love to read….just depends on the mood and what I find. I can’t think of any seasonal romances that I’ve picked up….at least not when that season was upon me.
    Great giveaway!! Happy Holidays everyone!!

    I can’t wait to read these! I like a lot of the Christmas Anthos – Lori Foster – Santa Baby, Jingle Bell Rock – feel good, quick to read!

  151. 151
    Jessica B. says:

    There are so many good Christmas reads out there. One that I enjoy is called Daddy’s Angel by Annette Broadwrick. Then there is Jingle Bell Rock with Lori Foster, Christmas Heat by Lora Leigh, A Pride Christmas in Brooklyn by Shelly Laurenston, etc.
    I could list so many more. It all depends on your mood and then I’d have to search through all my books to find them all. They all hold an appeal to someone out there.

    Anne says:

    I’ve read a lot of Christams Anthologies including one or two by mystery authors. Murder and Christmas, what a combo!

    Great contest! I have about 80 Kindle books on my computer so I could really use a Kindle.
