Friday Fun Day: Christmas Romance Novels

Today on the Pink Heart Society, Candace Shaw suggests Christmas romance novels to read this holiday season.
With the Christmas holidays approaching, I know everyone will be busy preparing for family and friends visiting, buying and wrapping gifts as well as putting up decorations. However, don’t forget your reading list! During this time of the year, I prefer to read romance novels centered around Christmas while sipping on hot apple cider or eggnog … spiked eggnog. Below are the books on my list that I’m reading this holiday season.
A Perfect Holiday Fling by Farrah Rochon
It’s no mystery why veterinarian Callie Webber is having a hard time getting into the holiday spirit. When the residents of her small hometown aren’t pitying her because of her ex-husband’s very public departure, they’re attempting to hook her up with a man…any man. Fed up with being everyone’s favorite charity case, Callie considers closing her animal clinic and moving to the big city. But, before she goes, she decides to give herself a Christmas treat to remember: a romantic holiday fling. And who better to have a fling with than the gorgeous newcomer who is turning heads around Maplesville?

When injured Navy pilot Stefan Sutherland reluctantly rescues a gutter cat for the sake of his five-year-old nephew, he never imagined it would lead to him discovering Maplesville’s most fascinating attraction…its smoking hot vet. Getting involved with a woman was the last thing Stefan anticipated when he agreed to care for his nephew during his Army nurse sister’s deployment, but if he’s going to spend the holidays in this sleepy Southern town, why not make the most of it with the perfect holiday fling.
