Want to get your main squeeze a gift that’ll put them in a different kind of holiday spirit, but stumped on how to do it? We asked romance authors Jayne Ann Krentz, Shoshanna Evers and Sophie Jordan to recommend the sexy reads they would give their partners–and the ones they want to see in their own stockings. Read on for the perfect gift books to keep you and your partner warm all winter long.
The Handmaid’s Tale
“It’s so hard for me to choose just one sexy read I’d love to get for the holidays. A lot of great books are coming out soon! But, since I’m on a dystopian kick, I’d love to get ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’–it’s been banned numerous times for its graphic sex scenes, but it always comes back because it has real literary value.”
–Shoshanna Evers, author of “The Pulse”
Never Desire a Duke
“There’s just something about historical romances set at Christmastime. The holly! The snowy English countryside! They’re cozy reads full of romance and holiday flavor. I always make it a point to read a few, and this year I’ve heard a lot of great buzz about ‘Never Desire a Duke’ by Lily Dalton. I wouldn’t mind this one in my stocking!”
