Jana (That Artsy Reader Girl) (Miss_Jana) | 18 comments For once, I'll be traveling during the Christmas season and wanted a few ideas for a cute Christmas romance or two to read on the plane! I'm asking pretty far in advance because Border's teacher sale is coming up soon and I'd like to stock up! Thanks!

TJ | 48 comments I just read "The Mischief of the Mistletoe" by Lauren Willig and it was delightful! Well written, light and humorous with a little mystery and a lot of romance. It doesn't go on sale until October but I would highly recommend it.


Jana (That Artsy Reader Girl) (Miss_Jana) | 18 comments That sounds cute! Thank you!

Melissa | 38 comments I loved Marian's Christmas Wish by Carla Kelly. It is a very good clean regency romance that is well written and good enough to read in any season. It is only 3 dollars on Kindle right now and worth even more than that!

message 43: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Grange | 10 comments My Christmas Regency novella, Christmas Present, is available on Kindle. It was originally published in the print anthology A Darcy Christmas but it's offered now as an individual novella for the first time. It's set in the world of Pride and Prejudice and it takes place a year after Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's wedding, when they are expecting their first child. The whole family gather together to celebrate Christmas, including Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Mr. Collins, and there is drama, romance and laughter in equal measure - all good, clean fun
Trivia - You can find out more about the child, and the subsequent Darcy children in Pride and Pyramids, which is a full length sequel to Pride and Prejudice, out now.
Christmas Present is $1.65 http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Prese... or £1.02 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Christmas-Pre...

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 18 comments This is my currently favorite romance (christmas)

Jingle Bell Babies by Kathryn Springer

Jingle Bell Babies

His triplet daughters are what kept rancher Jesse Logan going after his wife's death in the High Plains tornadoes. But three infants are too much work for one man. Nurse Lori Martin loved them from the moment she saw them in the neonatal nursery. So when she hears Jesse's looking for a nanny, she can't help but offer her services. And Lori soon discovers that all she wants for Christmas is a trio of giggling babies— and their handsome father.

Kelly Martin (kellymartinbooks) | 3 comments Astraea Press has a lot of Christmas books out now. The #1 Regency on Amazon is an AP regency. If you want, type in, Astraea Press in on the Amazon search and find all sorts of clean fiction :)

Jean Gordon (goodreadscomJeanCGordon) | 49 comments I can recommend a great Hanukkah story.


Lights of Love by Roni DebholtzNancy Gardner had carefully planned her Hanukkah celebration down to the last candle and was sure everything would be prefect. The last thing she wanted was for her first love, Mike Powers, to intrude on her well-laid plans.

But he has...and suddenly the holiday has taken on a whole new meaning.

As Nancy and Mike celebrate together at sparkling holiday parties and family festivities, Mike's presence ignites long-buried feelings in Nancy's heart. But past events have made her certain that their romance could never last.

Mike can't deny his feelings for the woman he once loved. The more he sees of Nancy, the more he knows they're meant for each other.

Can Mike convince Nancy that their love can shine as brightly as the glowing Hanukkah candles...forever?Roni Denholtz


message 47: by AlegnaB (new)

AlegnaB | 12 comments There is a "holiday" category on the bookshelf, but there aren't many books listed. If you know of any clean Christmas romance, please check to see if it's on our bookshelf. If it is, see if it lists "holiday" as one of the shelves, and if not, edit the book entry to select the "holiday" shelf. If the book isn't listed on our bookshelf, please add the book, making sure to check "holiday". If we all do this, we may make quite a long list that all members can easily access.


message 48: by Alexandra (new)
