I have a confession; I am that annoying friend that loves snow. I’m the one
chanting, "Let is Snow! Let it Snow!" But I assure you I have the best reason
in the world to love winter and to love snow. I love reading, that simple.
During the summer months I don’t get as much reading as I would like. I’m too
tempted to go outside because it’s warm and pretty and there is so much to do.
During the winter I do love to go outside when we have our first big snow, and
I admit I have fun sleigh riding and building snow forks for that ultimate
snowball fight. But that can only last so long, I can only stand the cold for a
little while. It gives me the perfect excuse to make me a cup of hot French
vanilla and curl up by the fire with a great book from Harlequin to read.
Here’s my “to be read” pile for December.
Any book from the Harlequin Presents line is sure to heat up those cold winter
nights. They release 12 books monthly and I tell you it’s one of the hardest
things in the world to only pick a couple, not only for this column, but also
for my personal use.
HIS MISTRESS, HIS TERMS
by Trish Wylie is a
sure bet for those long winter days. Merrow O’Connell believes she is going to
work, for rich a playboy named Alex Fitzgerald, for her interior design skills.
She soon learns that he has something else in mind. He figures Merrow is
perfect mistress material. Merrow has been hurt one to many times and is
unattached and vows not to get close to Alex, especially when she learns he
wants her for more than a mistress.
THE ITALIAN'S UNWILLING
WIFE by Kathryn
Ross is another great read from Harlequin Presents. Abbie is the mother of
Damon’s son, but he figures she is only after is money. So, in his mind there
is only one way to make her pay, he will seduce her for the ultimate
satisfaction, and make her is wife for the most profitable item in his
Another line of books that Harlequin offers that will warm up those cold nights
is Harlequin Blaze. These stories are some of the steamiest on the market, but
they don’t only focus around sex. They focus on love and the ultimate “happy
ever after” that we all wish for.
NO PEEKING… by Stephanie Bond is the
third book in her Sex for Beginners series. All three books are about women who
have a chance to live out their wildest sexual fantasies. In this book, a
workaholic woman receives a letter that she had written herself ten years ago.
In the letter is her sexual desires, now that she has a chance and a willing
man, it’s up to her to let herself run wild.
Harlequin NASCAR only releases about two books, and then it’s not every month
they have a release. And they sell out quickly, so I wouldn't hesitate on
purchasing any book from this line that you are interested in.
EXTREME CAUTION by Jean Brashear, this book
sounds like it’s about an older woman for those of you looking for something
around your age. Maeve Branch has recently gone through the worst embarrassment
she could have ever thought of. Her husband has disappeared with millions of
money, that isn’t his. Not to mention she’s learned that he has been cheating
on her for a few years. Now she’s the talk of the town. Maeve keeps her focus
on her twin boys, who work in NASCAR, and volunteering at the animal shelter.
She’s trying to keep her life calm and then walks in oil tycoon Chuck Lawrence.
I hope these great reads help warm up your winter days. And please let it snow
