#AFTH2014 w/ Sara Jane Stone--favorite Christmas stories to curl up with... + giveaway

And morning yall! So today we have a new to me author...Sara Jane Stone. She's with Avon who I just adore and one I can't wait to check out :) Yall give her a nice warm welcome to the herd and leave her some comment love!  ~Anna

For the second year in a row, I have a December deadline looming as I prepare for the holidays.  Between the long hours spent at my computer (with a two and four year old at home this is actually the most peaceful part of my day!) and the demands of shopping (so not a sacrifice :) ), I still find a few hours to curl up with a holiday story. In case you’re looking to take a break from the demands of the season and curl up with a romance novel, here are a few of my favorites, new and old.  

I love the Twilight, Texas series! And nothing pulls at the heartstrings like a sexy, single father hero. 
Christmas with a SEAL by Tawny Weber
Tawny Weber’s SEAL series just keeps getting better and better! You don’t have to read them in order, but I highly recommend the other red-hot installment in this popular Harlequin Blaze series.
Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis
I reread this one every year.  Sometimes (like when the kids unravel wrapping paper all over the apartment) a little humor is welcome.  And no one delivers humor and heart like Jill Shalvis in my humble opinion.
Yours For Christmas by Susan Mallery
This sweet, heartwarming story is nothing like the super sexy books I write, but I recently stayed up all night reading “one more chapter” until I reached the end.     
What’s on your holiday reading list this year? Any books you reread year after year? 

Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb, afraid to be touched, and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls, and finding a job, seems like the first step to reclaiming her life and preparing for the upcoming medal ceremony, until the town playboy stumbles into her bed . . .

Chad Summers is living his dream-helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream job goodbye. But after a party, Chad ends up in bed with the one woman in Independence Falls he can’t touch. Too late he realizes the passionate sleeping beauty is the shy, struggling soldier his little sister befriended.

The playboy’s touch ignited something in her. And Lena is determined to find out if it is the man, and his wicked demands in the bedroom, or if she’s finally starting to heal. Chad is ready and willing to give into the primal desire to make Lena his at night-on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real so he can show Independence Falls-and his boss-that he has shed his wild image. But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality-if Chad can prove he’s the hero Lena needs night and day . . . forever.
