Imagine my twitterly glee when I saw that Sarah from one of my all time favorite blogs: Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books was offering to guest post on folks blogs today since SBs were going through maintenance. Their loss my gain. Evil I am. I jumped at the offer! So without further delay here's Sarah...
OMG you are SO RIGHT. My thermometer in NJ is reading a balmy 32.8 and I am excited about every last one of those last .8 degrees above freezing.
The thing about cold weather is that it makes me crave soup, hot beverages, and really long, luscious, forget-where-I-am-and-how-cold-it-is books. These are a special section of my keeper shelf - cold weather books. I have vacation books, need-a-break-books, and the ones that Calgon-take-me-away immediately.
My top cold weather books (add blanket and hot beverage, spiked if you like it, and really, really warm socks) are:
"The Duke and I" - Julia Quinn. Holy smackerel I love this book. No matter where I start reading it, I'm in. Warmth of a happy family and a truly loving heroine: le sigh."
Charms for the Easy Life," by Kaye Gibbons - not a romance, but three women's storys, past present and future, heavy on the magic and midwifery.
"Lyon's Lady" by Julie Garwood. This one is on my bedstand because I am always FREEZING when I get in bed, and a few pages makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I love old Garwood historicals but this one is among my faves.
What books warm your toes?
(Thanks for letting me guest blog!)

Thanks so much Sarah! I'm honored to have you on my blog today. I'll be sure to put those books on my snuggle up list along with a Snuggie!
Everyone please hop on over to SBTB when they are up and running. It is the place to be for those in the know on romance. And chime in on the books that warm your toes. For me it's anything with a sexy rake and a stubborn heroine. Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James please.
