Marrying Owen by Alexis Anne
Bringing your boyfriend home to meet your parents at Christmas is a difficult tradition no one looks forward to, but bringing home Owen Jones, lead singer of the triple platinum rock band Jettison Seven, is extra complicated for Alice’s conservative family. Which means a week over the holidays will be the test of whether their relationship is the stuff of legend, or of grocery store gossip magazines.
Simply Having by Audra North
Astrid Faber isn’t expecting any miracles this Christmas. With her parents gone, she’s never felt as alone as she does this holiday season. But when she finds herself struggling to get her lonely little Christmas tree up the stairs into her apartment, her elusive hot neighbor, Simon James, appears just in time to help lift the tree—and her spirits. But can Simon ease her heart long enough for Astrid to allow herself to simply have a wonderful Christmas?

Allina Hemphill’s been (unsuccessfully) set up by her parents too many times, but when her mother’s scheming puts Blane Douglas in her sights on Christmas Eve, she finds she’s more than happy to steal a kiss under the mistletoe.
This Christmas by Alexandra Haughton
This Christmas, Maggie Embry feels like a misfit toy. When her parents announced their divorce over Thanksgiving leftovers, it rocked the foundation of her life—even though she’s almost thirty, not six. By refusing to take sides, she finds herself with nowhere to go for the holidays. Which is fine by her because the magic of the season has lost its sparkle.
Reluctantly, Maggie agrees to join her best friend’s little family celebration—it’s better than spending Christmas alone. But when their party grows by an unexpected number at the candlelight Christmas Eve service, it’s a blast from the past who just might be able to help her find her missing pieces…
Adventurer Lance Desmond needs to produce a fortune before his arch-rival collects the bounty on his head.

Not with the gold he so desperately needs, but with medieval Princess Marigold who’s been cooling her heels since…well, medieval times.
The lonely princess refuses to acknowledge the blossoming attraction between them. Not just because she deserves a better future than a penniless rogue. But because at midnight, he’ll vanish like all her other would-be heroes. And the evergreen in the parlor will have one more figurine hanging from its boughs…
We can’t change the past, but the past can change us.

Trish has big plans for New Year’s Eve: a giant bowl of popcorn, a nice warm blanket on the couch, and binge-watching TV all night long. With any luck, she’ll be fast asleep when the clock strikes twelve.
Not if her vivacious friend from the gym gets a say! Lori has salacious plans, and she’s persuaded Trish to join the party—even if it takes a touch of trickery to get Trish out of the house.
Trish isn’t exactly overjoyed when Lori drags her to the Cougar’s Eve New Year’s party at a swanky resort hotel. Trish is definitely NOT a cougar. In fact, she hasn’t been to bed with anyone since her husband split, and that was years ago.
When the hotel’s gorgeous young receptionist teaches Trish a few tricks, she can’t help wondering if Lori’s had the right idea all along. One night living the cougar life couldn’t ruin her forever… could it?
