This is what I have on my holiday TBR list for December:
Mischief and Mistletoe
Stories from Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley, Joanna Bourne, Patricia Rice, Nicola Cornick, Cara Elliot, Anne Gracie, and Susan King
Unwrap the most romantic of Regency delights in this sparkling holiday collection...
Christmastime in England - a time for passionate secrets, delicious whispers, and wicked-sweet gifts by the fire. From a spirited lady who sets out to save her rakish best friend from an unsuitable engagement, to a bold spy who gets the unexpected chance to win the woman he's always loved, to a vicar's daughter who pretends to be a saucy wench, these holiday tales will make you curl up in front of the fire for a memorable season of mischief and mistletoe...
Jingle Spells is a feel-good holiday collection of witch-themed tales, from a witch hunt at the winter solstice, to a Christmas dinner in danger of being ruined by an imp. Here you will find a sparkly pair of shoes holding one woman's destiny, and a magical, mystery-solving cup of latte. Meet a broken young woman unaware of the powers she possesses, and a teenage boy with the fate of the world on his shoulders.
Featuring short stories from veteran authors Jennifer Laslie, Sidonia Rose, and Heather Marie Adkins, and introducing Sammi Cox, Brittany White, and K. Laslie. Sit back with a steaming mug, light up the fireplace, and enjoy these six tales of magic, mayhem, and love.
How the Bear Stole Christmas
Andi needed to put some distance between her and her cheating fiance.

A Caribbean Christmas
Catherine Duncan is down on her luck.
Life is stressful enough for the hardworking single mom when she gets unexpectedly fired from her job. Right before Christmas. But her sister is there to cheer her up, with the gift of a vacation to Jamaica, to take her mind off all the stress.
Enter Derek - tall, dark, handsome, and everything Cathy needs to refresh her weary spirits, and have some fun for the first time in forever. But Derek is not all that he seems.
A businessman with an overbearing father, he ropes Cathy into a fake fiancee agreement that promises to end her financial troubles. Feeling skeptical, but desperate for the money, Cathy wonders if this sexy man will end up turning her Jamaican vacation into a perfect paradise, or a complete nightmare...
