Welcome Ho-Ho-Ho-ers! What better way to cure a post-election hangover than to focus on happy things, like Christmas. That’s why I’m so excited to be part of Caffeinated Readers Holiday Challenge. There’s nothing like some eggnog and a happily ever after to warm me from the inside.

Below is a link to an excerpt from my latest Holiday Romance, Christmas Baby for the Princess. I hope you’ll read it, and enjoy.

I’m also giving away a duet of Christmas Harlequin Romances as part of the celebration. The titles are Christmas Baby for the Princess and its sequel Winter Wedding for the Prince. I hope you enjoy them.

As for a challenge….Well, I don’t believe in making people work too hard. (I’ll leave that to my fellow decembercoverelves.) I’d love if you signed up for my newsletter so you can learn about other holiday promotions that are coming up, but that’s not a requirement. 

Instead, I’ll simply ask you to post the opening line and title of the Christmas book you’re reading. Every time you start a new book, stop by and post again. Each different book will count as a different entry.

Good luck!

  3. Anyone who says that money can’t buy happiness has clearly never been inside a bookstore.”
    First sentence from A Gift to Remember by Melissa Hill

    Thanks for participating in this challenge and in the readathon. Romance is not my go-to genre but I stopped by to support you…. and I need to think about Christmas and happy things after watching election coverage all night.

  4. Thank you for hosting this challenge. I’m starting my second book for this readathon, The Christmas Project by Maxine Morrey, and this is the opening line: “I peered down at my feet an wondered exactly how many toes I’d have left when I finally got home this evening.”

  5. I posted this yesterday, but it didn’t seem to show up so I apologize if this comes through twice!

    Thanks for the giveaway

  7. I just finished Big Package by Opal Carew: “Holly stood beside Jim’s van, snow falling around her in big fluffy flakes that clung to her hair and jacket as Jim plunked a large gift-wrapped box on the snow-covered ground.”

    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  8. I just finished Mall Santa Murder by Willow Monroe and it was a well thought out mystery. “Come on, come on. Dang it, Rosie,” Gemma Stone muttered to her car as she shifted it into drive one more time, praying for the transmission to finally lurch into gear.

  9. I just finished Marian’s Christmas Wish by Carla Kelly – 1st line “Ariadne, you don’t really think that Mama-our Mama- has written to Percy, do you?”

  10. I just finished Once Upon a Royal Christmas by Robin Bielman, and it was glorious. It starts: “Rowan Palotay walked down Court Street, her grip tight on two dog leashes in one gloved hand and two more in the other.”

  11. Currently reading I Heart Christmas by Lindsey Kelk. First line: ‘Can you explain to me exactly why I’m dragging this thing through the streets of Brooklyn’ Jenny asked, huffing and puffing behind seven feet of majestic Christmas tree, ‘when you have a perfectly acceptable husband to do these things?’

  12. I finished three books. I already left message on my first book. My second book was Holly and the I.V. by Haley Harper. The book begins, “It was a cat fight. If one of the participants hasn’t already drawn blood, Freddy would have thought the situation hilarious”. The book held my attention and was a humorous cozy mystery. I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads.
