The Star (St. Lucia) - - CHRISTMAS ISSUE - El­iz­a­beth Chan - Christ­mas In the City

Need some great ro­mances to get you in the mood for the win­ter hol­i­days? Look no fur­ther be­cause here are five great hol­i­day ro­mance nov­els that will bring forth joy and cheer all year round.

1. All I Want For Christ­mas Is You by Lisa Mon­dello

All I Want for Christ­mas is You is lovely tra­di­tional hol­i­day tale about two lost souls find­ing one another, with the help of an adorable impish lit­tle girl who does her part in help­ing her mother find a hap­pily ever after.

2. A Wall­flower Christ­mas by Lisa Kley­pas

The mo­ment Rafe and Han­nah meet, the Earth be­neath them moves. They have no clue why they have such in­tense feel­ings for each other. From that mo­ment, Rafe and Han­nah’s life is changed for­ever.

The joy in read­ing A Wall­flower Christ­mas is watch­ing Rafe and Han­nah fall for one another. The char­ac­ters here are lively and the ro­mance, as with ev­ery Lisa Kley­pas novel, is steamy. 3. Holly Lane by Toni Blake Re­cent di­vorcee, Sue Ann Simp­kins has given her­self a week­end away as a Christ­mas gift. What she doesn’t ex­pect is Adam Becker, her ex-hus­band’s best friend show­ing up on her door claim­ing the cabin is sup­posed to be his. When a sud­den snow­storm strands them to­gether, Adam is thrilled be­cause he’s al­ways been in­ter­ested in Sue Ann since el­e­men­tary school. Holly Lane starts out as a cozy ro­mance but then trans­forms into a hot and emo­tional one that should ap­peal to read­ers who like when the main cou­ple is stuck to­gether and end up work­ing out their is­sues.

4. My Kind of Christ­mas by Robyn Carr

My Kind of Christ­mas brings forth the charm as two emotionally dam­aged peo­ple find a home with one another that in­cludes the support of their loving friends and fam­ily

5. Starry Night by Deb­bie Ma­comber

Car­rie Slay­ton is sick of writ­ing fluff pieces for the Chicago Sun Time. If she can find the best­selling her­mit au­thor, Finn Dal­ton, her ed­i­tor will let her write what­ever she wants. Slowly but surely Car­rie and Finn started a ten­ta­tive friend­ship that turns into some­thing more. They have a long dis­tant re­la­tion­ship through emails and phone calls. Finn then goes out of his way to be with Car­rie, es­pe­cially dur­ing the hol­i­days, but the is­sue of the ar­ti­cle is al­ways in the back­ground.

Starry Night is a feel good ro­mance that in­volves a won­der­ful old-fash­ioned type of courtship full of many ten­der mo­ments. Coun­try star Dar­ius Rucker has left his days with Hootie and the Blow­fish far be­hind. He has re­leased three con­sec­u­tive #1 coun­try al­bums and all have been cer­ti­fied gold or plat­inum. Home For the Hol­i­days is his first hol­i­day col­lec­tion. Sh­eryl Crow makes a guest ap­pear­ance, and the al­bum was pro­duced by coun­try mu­sic veteran Frank Rogers.

Dave Koz and Friends - The 25th of De­cem­ber

Jazz sax­o­phon­ist Dave Koz has re­leased three pre­vi­ous hol­i­day al­bums and has hit the road on his an­nual Dave Koz and Friends Christ­mas tour for 17 con­sec­u­tive years. Here his friends in­clude Glo­ria Este­fan, Johnny Mathis, and Kenny g.

Jim Brick­man - On a Win­ter’s Night: The Songs and Spirit of Christ­mas

Pi­anist Jim Brick­man has twice been nom­i­nated for Grammy Awards. This new hol­i­day col­lec­tion fol­lows last year’s The Magic Of Christ­mas. It in­cludes a guest ap­pear­ance from mu­sic legend Kenny Rogers. El­iz­a­beth Chan fa­mously left a suc­cess­ful cor­po­rate ca­reer to pur­sue her dream of writ­ing hol­i­day mu­sic. Her al­bum Every­day Hol­i­days was a hit last year.

Starry Night is a sure­fire

Hol­i­day pick.
