It's that time of year again—when families come together for various holiday celebrations and fill houses with laughter, bickering, and generally good times. Our holidays will be really low-key this year, which has me craving that loving chaos in any way I can get it—this year that means fictionally!

I've put together five of my favorite family-based series that I love reading around this time of year (in no particular order):

  • The SaDiablo family (The Black Jewels series, Anne Bishop). Revisiting Daemon, Lucivar, and Saetan every year in December is one of my favorite things to do. Their story is not an easy one, but it's so rewarding and I've reread the books so many times, it's like visiting old friends. The books are also great holiday reads because Winsol, their winter celebration, features heavily into many of the books.
  • The Grey Family (Greys of Montana stories, Megan Crane). I first read Come Home for Christmas, Cowboy several years ago, and I was captivated by the Grey family. They're so full of life and their history in Montanan is nothing short of spectacular. The entire series is a joy.
  • The Sevenwaters family (The Sevenwaters Series, Juliet Marillier). The Sevenwaters is another fictional family I ensure I revisit at least once a year. Their stories are so full of love and life and joy and sorrow and they never fail to pull me out of reality and into the historical fantasy world where the fae walk the forest, magic shows up in unexpected ways, and druids are more than what they seem. The daughters of Sevenwaters stand apart as individuals who love their family but defy it as necessary. I cannot recommend these books enough.
  • The Original Sinners (The Original Sinners, Tiffany Reisz). Some families are created through choice, rather than a happenstance of birth, and that's never more apparent than in this series. To say the characters' relationships with each other is unconventional is a mass understatement, but their genuine love for each other underscores every single book in this series, and it's a large reason why these books are utterly unforgettable.
  • The Mar Clan (The Edge Series, Ilona Andrews). This series does a great job of showing that family is complicated. Sometimes you love each other, sometimes one of your cousins is a priest in a sect that calls a giant snake monster thing its own. Complicated. The Mar Clan is colorful in the extreme and despite having a large number of cousins, each character is totally memorable and leaps off the page.
What about you? What are some of your favorite fictional families you like to revisit again and again?


The O'Malleys #5

Undercover Attraction

Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O'Malleys.

Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it's Aiden O'Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she'll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.

Aiden can't afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O'Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they're playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their "engagement" was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe-- even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.
