Holiday Hop Featuring Jill Shalvis, Carolyn Brown, Grace Burrowes, Terry Spear, and Sarah Morgan + Giveaway
Ready or not, Christmas is right around the corner, which means shopping, food, family — and holiday romances! This season, award winning authors Jill Shalvis, Carolyn Brown, Terry Spear, and Sarah Morgan each have Christmas romances releasing. To get readers into the holiday spirit, the authors answer the following question: Where is the best place to stash mistletoe for optimal kissing potential?

Ladies, take it away!

Jill Shalvis author of One in a Million

The best place to stash mistletoe is in the front door entry way. This way you can catch them coming or going. Or both. :)

Carolyn Brown author of Cowboy Boots for Christmas

In Cowboy Boots for Christmas (Cowboy not Included) the mistletoe is hung in the archway. Right out there so Finn and Callie won’t miss it. Of course, the children all make gagging noises when Finn takes advantage of it.

In our part of the world, mistletoe grows wild in the trees so there’s plenty of it to hang on the front porch, above the front door, all the archways and even above the shower in the bathroom.

Grace Burrowes author of What A Lady Needs for Christmas

A question for the ages. The pantry—who doesn’t raid the pantry at Christmas? The front door, so every gathering can start off on the right, merry foot, and end in the same friendly vein. The library, where all the introverts gather as soon as they can? The punch bowl, where everybody has to make at least one stop? But who says you can only hang one bunch of mistletoe?

Terry Spear author of A Highland Wolf Christmas

Mistletoe is not needed in A Highland Wolf Christmas. They have to bring it in from England, so they do have it, but kissing under the Christmas tree works even better. And I mean, UNDER the Christmas tree. You see, the clan has these unruly Irish wolfhounds and to protect Calla from the falling tree, Guthrie has to…well, let's just say that this is how it all begins for these two.

Sarah Morgan author of Maybe This Christmas

My heroine, Brenna, hangs it over the door. It seems to work for her!

  9. I like all of the Christmas reads that come out every year and I try to read every one from my fave authors...all of whom are represented on this blog tour...yea!! They all have the HEA and touches of kindness, generosity and love...all about the Season. And I love to watch all the old Christmas fave movies (Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life and others)...and I watch all the Christmas cartoon movies with my grandkids (Rudolph, Frosty, etc.). All of our kids/grandkids live pretty far away from whenever we have a quiet Christmas without them, like this one coming up, I get to read read read . . . and I love that kind of Christmas too! In fact, aside from Christmas frosted cookies, I'm looking forward to another year of romantic Christmas reads. Thanks for your writing gals, and thanks for this post.
