Tis the season to read holiday romances. *big happy sigh*

This is the time of the year when I get to read my favorite books. I mean what can be better than a romance wrapped up with a great big Christmas bow. ;-) Maybe that's why I'm writing my second holiday romance which will be out at the end of next year.

Today when I take a break from my holiday cleaning, I'll be diving into a new Christmas romance. This is a new to me author--Kim Watters. Her cover drew me right in and it also helps that I love animals and I love them in romances too. :-) And then there's the backcover blurb which has key words such as Scrooge, holiday shop and eviction. I was totally sold on this book. Here's the full blurb and cover. I'll let you judge for yourself.

Just in time for Christmas, a tall, dark and handsome Scrooge visits Holly Stanwyck's holiday shop, threatening eviction. But once landlord Ethan Pelligrino sees the single mom's plight, the former soldier becomes her protector instead. Suddenly he's helping her with her struggling business and bonding with her troubled son. A wounded veteran come home to heal, Ethan is no stranger to sorrow. But something about the pretty widow fills him with hope. Will Holly be able to let go of her own painful past to see her future by his side?
