The holidays are officially here! That means endless Christmas music, decorations galore, wrapping presents and of course, ROMANCE!
The holidays provide the perfect time to celebrate and spend time with your boo. Nothing says romance quite like cuddling up near a fireplace. For those of you, who like me, may not have a fireplace or a damn boo, romance novels are about to be the next best thing this holiday. LOL.

Here are 5-holiday romance novels to read this season, with the publisher’s’ description included.
