Shelley Aikens:  Hot, Steamy Erotica
 
I love love love Christmas! I tuned my radio to the all-Christmas station a month ago, and I've been singing carols to myself ever since. And reading piles of Christmas novels and crafty holiday magazines.  I like Christmas stories almost as much as I enjoy the holiday itself, except that this year I've been a bit disappointed that the ones I'm reading all seem to be so sweet.  Well, okay, the Christmas erotica isn't usually sweet! But lately I've been reading a lot of non-erotic fiction too. :)

So what have I picked up lately? Here are a few of the (unusual for me) titles from the pile of books I've been reading at my library and listening to in audio:

What's sweeter than a Cedar Cove Christmas?  Yeah, so, this one really wasn't my kind of book! Very Christmassy, though :)

Aaaaaand.... I followed that one up with an Amish Christmas! Sounds like it would be even sweeter, right? Not quite--I almost enjoyed this one :)

Hmm,  a bright red cover, the word "kissing" in the title... Has to be hot, right??? Well, no--it's sort of a cozy British mystery.  Not even all that Christmassy, unfortunately :(  But it was an audiobook, and I enjoyed the narration and the characters, and the overall feel of the book was fun for a few hours before it got a bit zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz for my taste.

I liked this one! It was sweet and pretty cheesy, but I enjoyed it :) I guess as it gets closer to Christmas my tolerance for sweetness/cheesiness goes up...

Ah! Now this is a bit more like the kind of book I really like!  Nice hot romance with a hint of cozy Christmas happiness.  Not to mention a gorgeous shirtless man on the cover surrounded by presents!  Now this is more like it!

So... What's next? Have you seen the Holiday books at Carina Press? They look GREAT! Pretty much every cover I see makes it onto my Christmas wish list :)  But this one looks like it might be sexy & spicy enough to make it to the top of the list!

Happy Holidays! And happy reading! If you know any great Christmas reads, let me know!
