Sometimes we all need a little bit of a pick-me-up during the holiday season. It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year and all that, but it’s frickin’ stressful. Between the in-laws and the holiday shopping (not to mention the calories. Yikes!), December can quickly turn into a jolly nightmare. However, The Mistletoe Bride is perfect for getting into the holiday season.
With Saint Patrick’s Day coming up, my mind has definitely been on the Irish. Irish romance novels, Irish romance movies, the works. What can I say? The Irish are sexy. And This is the perfect time of year to indulge in such fantasies.
Since I don’t particularly like watching parades and I’m not old enough to buy whiskey (not to mention it’s gross) , my Saint Patrick’s Day of 2016 will probably be spent reading Irish romance novels and watching Irish romance movies.
However, this isn’t a list of Irish romance novels. For that, I suggest you check out Boyfriends for Sale: Irish Edition. This is a list of books to read if you love the movie Leap Year.
Leap Year is the first movie I think about when I think about Irish romance. It’s hard to beat Matthew Goode’s accent and Amy Adams’ fantastic portrayal of a snooty New Yorker. With a journey across Ireland, a bar fight, and a reluctant love blossoming, what’s not to like? And with 2016 being a leap year, there are two reasons to watch it now. If you’ve already watched it, then these are the romances you’ll want to read next. Continue reading “10 Romances You Need to Read if You Like Leap Year”
Skip the chocolate this Valentine’s Day and enjoy some romance novels instead. Not only will they put you in the mood for the big date with your significant other (or that night in front of the TV with all the movies Ryan Gosling has ever made), but they are also a lot of fun (and less calories). Here are some of them from AllRomance and Smashwords that you can enjoy.
It can be a good thing, but at the same time it can ruin relationships or at the very least cause fights and angst. Simon and Kara haven’t totally figured out how to deal with their money, even though they are engaged. Kara is still self-conscious about the income gap between them and wants a prenup. Simon is worried that Kara doesn’t think that he trusts her and wants to do anything and everything to prove that he does. Then there’s the little matter of Kara’s pregnancy.
Like Mine for Tonight and Mine for Now, Mine Forever is a fantastic erotic romance.
What do you do when the love of your life is almost kidnapped by druggies? You do everything you can to convince her to come home with you, of course. Which is exactly what Simon does with Kara. But even with Kara reluctantly living with Simon again, things aren’t perfect. Kara won’t accept anything less than a relationship and Simon is still trying to figure out how to be in one. Can Simon put his past behind him so he can finally have happiness with Kara?
