Love it or hate it, winter is here and Christmas is nearly upon us. Even if you don't celebrate the holiday, signs of the season are everywhere-- the nip in the air, the scent of evergreens, the cards and gifts, the holiday lights. (Sadly, my lawn remains quite bare of snow-- I'm pinning my hopes on the Boxing Day forecast.) People are drawing closer together; students are home on vacation, friends and neighbors are visiting, and families are travelling to be with one another for the holidays. It's a time to be with the people you love. Perhaps this is why Christmas romances have such strong appeal.
Who hasn't dreamt of that holiday spirit (helped by a dash of eggnog or mistletoe) working its magic to warm a cold heart? What greater gift is there, after all, than finding someone share the holidays with-- a new love, or an old love reunited? There are certainly a lot of big-name romance authors who have been inspired by the season this year. I've listed New City's latest holiday acquisitions below. If you're just looking for a fun seasonal read, I'd recommend a glance at last year's list, also ('Tis The Season... for Romance! )-- most of those titles are still in our collection.
Don't forget, New City Library will be closed Friday and Saturday, but we're open today until 9 PM-- there's still time to stock up on your holiday reading! (There are also a number of holiday titles available on our Digital Download Center , and that never closes.)
I wish all my readers a warm and happy holiday season!
