[Note from Frolic: Today, we welcome author Amy Aislin to the site. She’s talking all things Christmas novels! Take it away, Amy.]
Thank you for joining me to celebrate the release of my newest m/m romance, Gingerbread Mistletoe, the second book in my Lighthouse Bay series. If you enjoy low-angst, small town, enemies to lovers Christmas romances with a dash of Christmas magic, check it out!
I love, love, love Christmas! Christmas movies, Christmas music, Christmas decorations, Christmas books. I don’t just watch or listen to or read them during the holiday season either—it’s an all-year-long thing for me. I also tend to write my Christmas romances at the height of summer. In fact, as I write this, I’m watching a Christmas movie!
Today, Frolic has let me take over the blog to tell you a little bit about some of my favorite Christmas novels. Check them out below.
The Remaking of Corbin Wale by Roan Parrish
This was the first book by Roan Parrish that I ever read and it’s pure magic! It’s got a dreamy sort of quality to it, and the writing is powerful and evocative, while at the same time being incredibly sweet and graceful. The connection between Alex and Corbin is so tender and heartwarming that I re-read this one every year at the holidays.
A Very Perry Christmas by Marie Landry
This is a recent favorite. In fact, it just released this week! A Very Perry Christmas is the perfect dose of holiday coziness. It’s low-angst holiday fun, the perfect quick and cozy read to brighten up your reading. It’s quirky and funny and features an established couple visiting family for the first time.
Let Your Heart be Light by J.R. Lawrie
I loved this sooooo much! Mushy, insta-lovey, fluffy sweetness at its best. Exactly right for at the holiday season. Three well-developed stories featuring characters you’ll fall in love with, it’s sweet and funny and full of Christmassy feels.
Better Not Pout by Annabeth Albert
I loved Teddy and Nick so much, separately and together. They complimented each other well and they each brought something to the relationship, to the other’s life, that was lacking. Wonderful characters, fun small-town setting, great dialogue, humor mixed tenderness. Well-written and a thoroughly enjoyable holiday read!

Gingerbread Mistletoe by Amy Aislin, out now!
The last thing Jeff wants is to spend time with the man who totaled his car—the one he spent years restoring with his late father. But if he wants to resurrect his childhood town’s annual outdoor hockey tournament, he’s got no choice.
The last thing Mika wants is to work with the guy who took off right after the accident, without ensuring he was okay. And working together on organizing Jeff’s proposed tournament sounds like a complete nightmare. He’s got enough on his plate after surviving cancer.
Sparks fly as they’re forced to work together, but is that enough for them to set their differences aside and pull off the tournament in only two weeks? Or will they prove to be immune to the magic of Christmas?
