Wishlist: Holiday Edition #1

Hey Everyone!

Sure, you might find that it is still a bit early to think about Christmas and the holidays (though some of my fellow Book Lovers myself included don’t think such a thing is possible. Seriously, I count back the days ’till Christmas as soon as January rolls around ), but since there are so many of us we have to start early for everyone to get a chance to show their holiday wishlists. And who knows maybe you’ll get inspired for some gift ideas, either for yourself or your loved ones.

So here are some holiday themed stories that caught my eye recently and that I can’t wait to get my hands on:

Romance and Me: The “My Best Friend’s Little Sister” Romances

There is a favourite trope of mine we haven’t discussed yet and that is the brother’s best friend falling for the brother’s little sister or vice versa. And lately it seems that most of the romances I have read featured this trope.

So why do I like this setting you might ask? Well it’s quite obvious: I LOVE protective and thoughtful men and usually these heroes have grown up with the heroines, saw them when they were little, vulnerable and as friends of their brothers they still feel a bit responsible for the sister’s wellbeing. I just love those scenes when these alpha male heroes get all Neanderthal when an other man behaves irrespectfully with the girl and they step in *Stella fans herself so as not to swoon* And those scenes where the big brother’s best friend hero is trying hard not to think about …

Simply Irresistible – Book #1 in the Lucky Harbor series

Maddie Moore’s whole life needs a makeover.

In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won’t be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two …
