Holidays are really the happiest times of the year. There's so much to love about them: good food, lavish parties, time spent with friends and family, and, of course, gifts specially wrapped just for you!
But what I love best about the holiday season, and particularly the December holiday season, is that you have a great excuse to schedule extra reading time. For most of us, there aren't any deadlines to meet or shopping to do or appointments to make. Once you've celebrated, eaten, and exchanged presents, you get to curl up in a favorite spot with as many books as you can read before the New Year!
Ravishing in Red has been the gift I've been waiting to give myself for months. As most of you know, I'm a bit of a fan of La Hunter, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate this Christmas than with her new romance. Then it's on to Lauren Willig's latest installment in her wonderful Pink Carnation series,
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily (Pink Carnation Series #6). So what will you be reading until 2010? Come to Romantic Reads and tell us right here!
We at RR also need your help with recommendations! Perhaps it's the end-of-the-year rush, but folks have been asking us what we think they should be reading. So we're talking about our favorite funny vampire romances and other more mainstream titles.
