One of my favorite things about holiday romances is that more often than not, the characters are brought together because of the weather. Winter weather. Snow. Something I don’t have much of in Colorado (surprising, right?) Here are two novellas from Jill Shalvis that have weather playing a big part in. I read One Snowy Night (review) last year, and it made me go out and get more of Shalvis’ books (some of which may or may not be holiday books, as well). Holiday Wishes is Shalvis’ novella from this year, and another great read. I haven’t reviewed it yet, but if I ever sit myself in front of the computer long enough, it’ll be one of the many holiday romance reviews coming your way. I have a bit of a pile starting.
Hope you check these two out. And if you’ve read any of the author’s other holiday books, I’d love to hear about them. Leave suggestions in the comments!
Eddie Rodrigues doesn’t stay in one place long enough to get attached. The only time he broke that rule, things went south fast. Now he’s on the road again, with barely enough cash in his pocket to hop a bus south after his (sort-of-stolen) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Midwest, USA.
He’s fine. He’ll manage. Until he watches that girl get hit by a car and left to die.
Local shop owner Grayson Croft isn’t in the habit of doing people any favors. But even a recluse can’t avoid everyone in a town as small as Clear Lake. And when the cop who played Juliet to your Romeo in the high school play asks you to put up her key witness for the night, you say yes.
Now Gray’s got a grouchy glass artist stomping around his big, empty house, and it turns out that he . . . maybe . . . kind of . . . likes the company.
But Eddie Rodrigues never sticks around.
Unless a Christmas shop owner who hates the season can show an orphan what it means to have family for the holidays.
It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!
When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.
The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.
But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air.
