“One of my favourite Christmas books this year”
~ Under the Covers

Finally, I have found a Christmas book that I really like! Now, I know the cover is ugly verging on ominous; however, that isn’t a reflection of the book. Same Time, Next Christmas was a great read, funny and heart-warming…as well as a little surprising.

I say surprising because if someone had described the heroine to me, I would expect not to like her. She’s all about propriety and rules of proper behaviour…maybe a little bit stuffy. But, what actually happened was that I found her prickly personality charming. As did our hero Mr Fletcher Jamison, the friction between them was fantastic and was great at building the chemistry between them.

When I first read this, it seemed to be one of those stories where the whole situation could have been sorted out with a single conversation. However, the characters, especially Portia grew and changed a lot during the three Christmases this spans, that I think if events had happened at different times, that perhaps the ending would not have been quite so happy.

One of my favourite Christmas books this year, it was funny and heart-warming, the perfect read to curl up with this festive season.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
