I was looking around the other day for some hot Christmas anthologies and short stories. You know, to get in the spirit of things. Figured I’d share a few of the ones I found.
Aside from the one by Jeaniene Frost and Lynsay Sands, I haven’t read any of these yet so I can’t speak to how good they are. They are however getting some good reviews and are certainly eye-catching. The titles alone are cracking me up.
If you’ve read any of them, I’d love to hear what you thought so please feel free to comment.
The description of one is really long because it is an anthology with lots of authors, so I’m just going to put a link to the GoodReads page where you can get all the details.
So, here we go. I hope these warm you up and leave you feeling all fuzzy and warm in the right places…
