On the Book Cart

Hard to believe that the holiday season is just around the corner, but those shopping days are ticking away. This week's cart is full of holiday themed romances of all types. Two new books out in hardcover reunite readers with popular characters: Linda Lael Miller invites us to A McKettrick Christmas set in 1896, and Lisa Kleypas shows us how her now happily married Wallflowers join forces to marry off a Bowman brother in A Wallflower Christmas. Other historicals include The Christmas Countess by Adrienne Basso and Marry Christmas by Jane Goodger. Two anthologies feature short stories from favorite authors; It Happened One Night and A Historical Christmas Present. Featuring authors Stephanie Laurens, Mary Balogh, Jacquie D'Alessandro, Candice Hern, Lisa Kleypas, Lynsay Sands, and Leigh Greenwood, these tales of Christmas romance range from the 12th to the 19th century and are set in both Europe and the US. Contemporary titles include Sherri Erwin's Naughty or Nice, a paranormal, and Rebecca York's tale of romantic suspense,Christmas Spirit. If you can't stand to even think about shopping,wrapping and baking, pick up the historical Three Little Secrets by Liz Carlyle or the contemporary Thrill Me To Death by Roxanne St. Claire
