Off the Ice by Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn: An opposites attract, age gap, hockey romance between a professional hockey player and his professor (the romance begins after they're no longer professor/student). I'll be looking forward to the next in the series.
Wolf's Clothing by EJ Russell: This is the second book in the Legend Tripping series, and I'd read the first one before you jump into this one. The stories mostly stand alone, but there's a lot in book one that sets up book two. I found the werewolf lore so interesting in this book, and I loved the relationship between Trent and Christophe.
Heard by AM Arthur: Heard is the next book in the author's Breaking Free series and I found it as good as the first two. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Karter and Jax, and I loved seeing them become part of the family that had been building in the previous books. These books do have some dark themes in the characters' backstories, but they are lovely romances in an interesting world.
Preacher, Prophet, Beast and Underhill by Harper Fox: How did I get so far behind in Harper Fox's Tyack and Frayne series? I have no good answer to the question, really. The series remains a favorite, and I glommed up these latest two books, all the while hoping for more soon. Definitely read this series in order (and if you haven't read it, what are you waiting for?).
Vincent's Thanksgiving Date by R Cooper: A sweet, adorable Thanksgiving short that I read over the holiday. It gave me all the warm, fuzzy feelings that I like from a holiday romance.
I've also started my holiday reading. If you don't know, my own little tradition is to read (almost entirely) holiday stories in the month of December. I've posted about some of my favorites before (here and here and probably some other places too!) if you're looking for recs. So far this year, I've read:
Tequila Sunrise by Layla Reyne: Action-packed suspense and some very sweet scenes too, but you should read her Agents Irish and Whiskey series first to get the most out of it.
Blessings and Light by Kasia Bacon: A lovely, evocative winter holiday short set in the author's Order universe, and a good intro to this fantasy world. (And it's free, so definitely give it a try!)
A Special Delivery by Laura Bailo: This is a fluffy snowball of a holiday short with two men snowed in together and an adorable dog.
In Case of Emergency by Keira Andrews: Former step-brothers meet again after ten years and fall in love over Christmas. Very sweet (all those holiday warm fuzzies!), and there's a demisexual main character too.
Holly and Oak by R Cooper: Holly and Oak is set in the same world as the author's A Little Familiar, which I adored. This was wonderful too. I love Chester and Will (though maybe Chester just a little more?), and loved watching them find their way to each other. I also loved their cat and dog familiars, who were full of personality and great characters themselves.
Next up for me is Seven Tricks by KS Trenten, a holiday romance inspired by the Nutcracker. I'm very excited since I love the Nutcracker ballet. What have you been reading lately? And if you're a holiday romance lover, have you read any this year that you enjoyed?
