The Last Chance Christmas Ball by Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverley,  Joanna Bourne, Patricia Rice,  Anne Gracie, Susan King, Cara Elliott, Nicola Cornick

The Last Chance Christmas Ball is an anthology featuring eight stories told by some of our favorite Regency Romance authors. Jo Beverley begins with a prologue as The Dowager Countess of Holbourne, Lady Holly and her companion are writing out invitations for her annual Christmas Ball. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the event. Some folks refer to this as the Last Chance Christmas Ball as they hope to find true love or rekindle old flames. All of the stories take place at or around Lady Holly’s Ball. At well over 400 pages, this delightful collection has a romance for everyone.

All He Wants for Christmas by Lisa Plumley

All He Wants for Christmas by Lisa Plumley is the fourth book in the Kismet, Michigan series but do not let that deter you from enjoying this holiday read as it completely works as a standalone. Small-town charm, children, goldfish and a gooey romance make this a delightful holiday read.

Season for Scandal by Theresa Romain
