We wish you a merry Christmas…and a happily ever after!

A memorable three-night stand gets rekindled in a cabin in West Virginia. An office romance is sparked by an impulsive holiday kiss.

Edited by Angela James this anthology includes:

We'll Be Home for Christmas by HelenKay Dimon
The Best Thing by Jaci Burton
Ask Her at Christmas by Christi Barth
We'll Be Home for Christmas (Holloway #3) by HelenKay Dimon follows the story of Spence and Lila, who met before at a hotel and spent three nights together, but never thought about seeing each other again. Lila is at his home town to stay, and Spence only wants her out....or maybe 'rescue' her and take her to bed again. I can say this one was my favorite story, it was realistic the way Spence and Lila fell in love. I remember reading another story of HelenKay Dimon, that is actually linked to this one so it was great to see old characters.

The Best Thing by Jaci Burton (Kent Brothers #3) was another sweet surprise, because I found characters from another Christmas story I read last year hehe. I actually liked more this one, Brodi and Tori kissed each other last Christmas and it hasn't been the same since then. This year, Brodi is ready to easy things, but instead ends up spending the whole weekend with her! Everything is perfect, except Brodi's family, who keep asking him when he's getting married. Brodi is the perfect example of why you should never pressure someone to get married! You should be able to make the decision yourself, without all your family watching you and warning you not to hurt the other one.

Ask Her at Christmas by Christi Barth is a very cute story of two best friends, Caitlin and Kyle, who find sparkles in their relationship, just before Kyle gets engaged with another woman! Caitlin has always loved Kyle, but Kyle hasn't explored his feelings for her, mostly because of his fear to his father. Kyle was very weak most of the book, and maybe that's why I didn't love this story. I wanted him to fight more.

Overall, Romancing the Holiday offers three sweet (and sometimes sexy) love stories perfect to read for Christmas! You shouldn't miss it :)
