Holiday Stories: Blog Hop Weekend

Let's face it, holiday stories are awesome. Well, I like them at least. As early as July there are Christmas stories. But every year a new crop springs up--series, individual stories, one-offs--you name it and there's a Christmas theme.

Why?

Are they as popular as they seem to be? There are a number of types of Christmas stories; sweet, sexy, humorous. What binds them? The tradition of Christmas and the holiday spirit. A lonely girl any time during the year is bad enough in a romance, but during Christmas? Horrors. But by finding her hero during the holiday season makes the romance all the sweeter.


Today's giveaway: a Victorian fan and a copy of Dark Desires of the Druids: Murder and Magick (e-book or print your choice)--2 winners, so leave a comment to enter to win!

I'm enjoying our blog hop, Isabel, thanks again for thinking of it.

I'm not sure what it is about holiday romances, but I really love reading them and hope to write another one soon.

Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

I love holiday romances. Christmas, definitely but also others-New Year's Thanksgiving, 4th of July, even non-American. If it has a holiday theme I love it.

But Christmas stories always have a special magic to them. Something about them always brings a smile to pretty much everyone's face!
