There are a lot of Christmas romances out there – I know, I released two this year – but never fear because I’m here to help!
If you want to restock your “love in the holidays” shelf, here is a convenient list of Christmas romances sorted by price, genre, and type of book! (You’re welcome.)
Canadian Christmas Romances under $5 – See how Canadian authors like me celebrate Christmas! FOR ONE WEEK ONLY! Almost all of these books are set in Canada. I know for certain that we represent Vancouver, British Columbia on the west coast, southern Manitoba, two in Ottawa, Ontario, and a bunch in southern Ontario. We have dragons, LGBTQ+, hockey players, cowboys and more. And they’re all under $5! So check out some authors from north of the border and add some Canadian snow-mance to your life.
Paperbacks: My third North Pole Unlimited Collection is out in print today, but only the first book is listed in this promo. They are great for people who prefer paper books to e-books.
Box sets: But I only bought one book! Christmas romance box sets are a great bang for your buck! And they are a fabulous way to get introduced to new authors who you might also love. (I found one of my favourite authors in box set; I bought it for a series I recognized and now 30 books later, I’ve worn out author #2’s stories.) This promo includes “A KEEPSAKE CHRISTMAS” and at 75¢ a story, you can’t go wrong.
New releases: All these Christmas romances are brand new and just released for the 2021 holiday season. Make sure you’re up to date with your favourite sweet romance writers.
Small-town Christmas – sometimes you just want a book that’s like a Hallmark Christmas movie, with small town communities cheering the latest holiday romance towards a final kiss under the mistletoe.
Free e-books: Another great way to meet new authors. All the Christmas books in this promo are free, but you will have to sign up for an author newsletter to get them. FUN FACT: don’t unsubscribe right away! A lot of authors – me included – offer a free book to new subscribers, so if you stick around, you could score two free books out of the deal and find a new series to read.
All my North Pole Unlimited romances are novellas, which means they are a little too short to print effectively. But now you can get these three collections in paperback, including the most recent - Frank and Ginger. It's the same great North Pole Unlimited romances you've read on your e-reader, but they're now in print. Wouldn't you like to find one of these under the tree on Christmas morning?
Check your home country's Amazon pages to see if it's available there. UK and Australia, it is for certain.
Collection 1 US and Canada
Collection 2 US and Canada
Collection 3 US and Canada
(Shamrocks and Surprises - US and Canada - and Pumpkins and Promises - US and Canada - are also available in paperback.)
Wishing my Jewish friends a happy holiday on the first night of Hanukkah.
When it comes to Christmas present ideas, we can all us a little help. Personally, my father has the lovable, irritating habit of calling me at the beginning of December to tell me what he bought on his latest shopping spree - all of which would have looked great under the tree. Yes, Dad, I'm talking about you!
In case you are really stuck for ideas for family, friends, or colleagues at the office, check out these selections and mix and match to your heart's - and budget's - content! They range from relatively inexpensive to higher cost. Stick with one or put together a gift basket. You may find some of these suggests come in pairs or sets of 3, which means you can split them up to cover more people on your Nice list.
I either own and love all these things, or they have been recommended by friends and they are on my Christmas list to buy for other people (or myself) this year.

For HOSTS AND HOSTESSES
Flavoured oils and vinegars (Especially if you are not sure if the person drinks. They still conveniently fit great in wine bags.)
Holiday-patterned tea towels or hot pads/trivets
For GARDENERS. I own all these items, although not necessarily these brands, and would be thrilled to get any of them even as a duplicate. As a personal preference, I don't like rubber gardening gloves, so I'm not putting them on the list. Given a choice, I'd take leather over cloth. When it comes to tools, I prefer ones that don't have black handles--because I'm forever looking for them in the dirt after I've set them down to do something!

Squeeze bottles for sauce or icing (Dollar store ones work just fine)
Funnel (make sure it fits in the squeeze bottle opening.)
DOG OWNERS. Food and treats and toys can be hard because owners are picky about what they feed their pets. But check out these ideas.
Reflective vest for owners when walking in the dark or in Canada
Dog poop bags for leash

LED collar light https://amzn.to/3bh5rpa or in Canada https://amzn.to/3nvnkGH - a friend recommended these to me. She says they are amazing because 1) people can see you and your pet when you clip them to your zipper and your dog's collar. and 2) if you dog runs away or is in a park at night, you can still see them. Ensure that you get one that either stays on, or has the option to blink or stay on, because dogs tend not to like a blinking light that is attached to them. Dad, don't you read this. And if you already have, act surprised on Christmas morning!

Puzzle magazines (crossword, Suduko, search-a-word)
I've been waiting months for FRANK AND GINGER to come out, and today is the day. Michelle, our pint-sized matchmaker, has been taking lessons from Jilly, and now it's time to see if they've paid off.
Also, butter tarts. But no more hints - you'll have to read it for yourself.
I hope you enjoy it!
The $2.99 launch price will only be in effect until the end of the month, so grab it now from your favourite e-book retailer.
I have several new box sets out this winter. A KEEPSAKE CHRISTMAS and NORTH POLE UNLIMITED COLLECTION 1 are just two of them but they are both included in this festive collection of box sets. Limit yourself to just one if you have to, or get as many as appeal and read a new book every night from now until Christmas! (Spoiler - there are tons of holiday and historical box sets!)
I'm bursting with pride today with the release of A KEEPSAKE CHRISTMAS. I'm thrilled with Rachel and Owen's story and hope you enjoy reading about their festive road to romance. Even better, TINSEL AND TEACUPS (Holiday Beach 3) is only one of eight all-new Christmas romances in this anthology.
I've read all of these and I promise you that every one of these heart-warming sweet romances will fill you with the Christmas spirit!
You can get A KEEPSAKE CHRISTMAS at all of your favourite e-book retailers, but be warned - the special $2.99 sale price is only in effect for a week, so grab it before the price goes up.
And if you want to be an elf and get on Santa's Good List early, please leave a review anywhere if you enjoy the stories.
I've very excited to be part of these two Christmas romance promotions.
The Sweet Holiday Romances group has a ton of fun romances to brighten your reading time and put you into the holiday spirit, including DECKER AND JOY, which is free right now.
And I know some of you prefer to read paper books rather than e-books. So I found some other sweet romance authors who have books in print, and now you can stuff your stockings (and bookshelves) with print romances that are under $15.
No matter your preference, t'is the season for Christmas romances - so get reading!
