Best Spicy Christmas Romance Books

Santa's Lay is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Santa’s Lay
by Octavia Jensen

When my best friend hired me as a Christmas elf at her adult toy store, I didn’t expect to come in contact with the hottest Santa this side of the equator.

I also didn’t expect him to have an accent that made my knees weak or a gaze that made me want to bend over, but he did.

Kent Baker was everything I’d never wanted, and yet, one touch from him had me questioning my commitment issues and wondering if he felt the same. Would I find myself in a relationship for Christmas, or end up just another notch on Santa’s bedpost?

Kick off your holidays with this spicy Christmas romance book that is short and steamy and that had me looking at Santa in a whole new light, especially when he would sneak off with his naughty elf.

I thought that this was a quick but satisfying read that is really hot and erotic. It makes the perfect Christmas novella with steam. 😊

Dipped in Holly is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Dipped in Holly
by Dana Isaly

Holly was just dumped. Less than a week before Christmas. In public. Dressed as a slutty Mrs. Claus. All she wants is to hide in the bathroom and have a breakdown in peace. But the Silver Fox who owns the bar has other plans.

The moment Nick takes in Holly’s grey eyes and sassy attitude, he’s hooked. There’s no denying the attraction that has sparked between them. And when that tension finally snaps, he finds himself taking Holly to bed.

A kinky one night stand later, and they’re left questioning if it was enough.

This is another great pick if you want something very short and spicy that you could read before heading out to door to a holiday party to get you in the mood.

It’s also available to read in Kindle Unlimited so it’s a no-brainer that this should make your nice but naughty list of reads this holiday.

Meet Me in Los Feliz is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Meet Me in Los Feliz
by Kelly Reynolds

A California Christmas is all Nora’s ever known. She’s got everything she needs in Los Angeles – a flexible part-time nannying position, roommates who might as well be her family, and an acting career in the making. The last thing she’s looking for is a relationship.

So why does this redheaded, dirty-talking Brit suddenly have her tinsel in a twist?

When Bowie finds himself suddenly single (yet again) just before the holidays, he decides to take his friends’ advice and try something new: a holiday fling.

Seems easy enough until he meets Nora, the hypnotic, purple-haired goddess with curves for days, who just so happens to be his ex’s sister’s roommate.

She just wants something casual for Christmas. He doesn’t think he’ll be able to let her go come Boxing Day.

Can they turn their naughty month together into something nice forever?

I love books that start as no-string flings but turn into more. Plus, I’m already loving these characters – a “soft dom” with painted nails and a curvy heroine who knows where it’s at.

Bring on the holiday cheer with this spicy Christmas romance book!

A Merry Little Meet Cute is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

A Merry Little Meet Cute
by Julie Murphy and Sierra Simone

Bee Hobbes (aka Bianca Von Honey) has a successful career as a plus-size adult film star. But when Bee is cast to star in a Christmas movie for the squeaky-clean Hope Channel, Bee is forced to keep her work as Bianca under wraps.

That’s easier said than done when she discovers her co-star is none other than childhood crush Nolan Shaw, an ex-boy band member in desperate need of career rehab.

But things heat up quickly in Christmas Notch, Vermont, when Nolan recognizes his new co-star from her ClosedDoors account.

Now Bee and Nolan are sneaking off for quickies on set, keeping their new relationship a secret from the Hope Channel’s execs.

But if Bee and Nolan can’t keep their off-camera romance behind the scenes, then this merry little meet cute might end up on the cutting room floor.

Murphy and Simone don’t hold back the spiciness with their first Christmas romance book that starts a plus-size adult film star! Think of it as a Hallmark movie with extra steam and you have the perfect read for the holidays.

After finishing it, you’ll want to read the rest of their books in the Christmas notch series, including A Holly Jolly Ever After for even more steamy reads!

Window Shopping is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Window Shopping
by Tessa Bailey

Two weeks before Christmas and all through Manhattan, shop windows are decorated in red and green satin. I’m standing alone in front of the famous Vivant department store, when a charming man named Aiden asks my opinion of the décor.

It’s a tragedy in tinsel, I say, unable to lie. He asks for a better idea with a twinkle in his eye. Did I know he owned the place? No. He put me on the spot. Now I’m working for that man, trying to ignore that he’s hot.

But as a down on her luck girl with a difficult past, I know an opportunity when I see one—and I have to make it last.

I’ll put my heart and soul into dressing his holiday windows. I’ll work without stopping. And when we lose the battle with temptation, I’ll try and remember I’m just window shopping.

Don’t let Tessa Bailey’s super cute romance book cover fool you into thinking that this book is simply another sweet romcoms. Oh no, I love how she makes sure to mix in some serious naughtiness with all the nice in this spicy Christmas romance book.  

You will definitely enjoy it, especially if you love the TV show Ted Lasso on which she got the inspiration for the hero.

Tis the Season for Revenge is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Tis the Season for Revenge
by Morgan Elizabeth

Abbie Keller thought that Richard Bartholemew Benson the Third would be her forever. In their four years of dating, she never doubted that she wouldn’t end up with his grandmother’s engagement ring on her finger.

Sure, she had to change a few things about herself to fit that mold, but she was sure that at the end of it all, it would be worth it.

That is, until he leaves her crying outside her apartment wearing a Halloween costume, having broken it off with her because she’s just not serious enough. 

She was just fun, he tells her – and now that Richard has becoming a partner at his law firm in his sights, he needs to focus on work.

So, she does what every girl does when she’s broken up with: she calls her friends, gets drunk, dyes her hair, and formulates her plan for revenge.

It just so happens that the universe supports her efforts and gives her the perfect match to prove to her ex that he made a huge mistake: his boss.

Abbie starts dating the founding partner of Richard’s law firm, Damien Martinez, with one thing in mind: convincing him to invite her to the huge annual Christmas party as his date.

But when the relationship starts to become something more than casual dating and Abbie sees that the tough New York lawyer has a soft side, will she be able to follow through with her plan of deceit?

For a fun, grumpy sunshine, age-gap spicy Christmas romance you’ll have to check out this book where love is found while trying to enact sweet revenge.

Richard did Abbie a favor by cutting her loose so that she could find someone who loved the real her. Be sure to add this one to your TBR list this year. It’s also one of the best Kindle Unlimited Christmas romance books!

Stocking Stuffers
by Erin Mclellan

Sasha Holiday is so over the holidays after getting left at the altar last Christmas Eve. But as the marketing maven for Lady Robin’s Intimate Implements, she’s stuck not-so-merrily pitching naughty toys at a romance book club’s Christmas party.

Her loathing of the yuletide only intensifies as a snowstorm rolls in and traps her at the Winterberry Inn. Stranded with her is Perry Winters—a hot bearded book club member trimmed in flannel and tattoos.

Perry’s a romantic with an unerring belief in the magic of the season, and he recognizes a Christmas miracle when he sees it. Brave, smart, and confident—Sasha Holiday is a gift. And the gifts keep coming when she suggests they pass the time with some no-strings fun. After all, she has a big bag of toys that would make even Santa want to stay in bed on Christmas Eve.

But the frisky festivities turn complicated as feelings spark between Sasha and Perry. Perry wants to see Sasha once the snow clears, but Sasha is reluctant to take the relationship sleigh ride again. Perry will have to show her that love is more than just a holiday feeling.

This is one spicy Christmas romance book considering an entire bag of toys make an appearance! I for one love romance books featuring toys but the setup of this forced proximity only adds to the fun in this holiday romance.

Secret Santa is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Secret Santa
by Kati Wilde

After years of struggling to make ends meet, Emma Williams finally lands a job that suits her perfectly—she enjoys her work, likes her new boss, and especially loves knowing her first paycheck is coming just after Christmas. That is, if she lasts that long. Because Logan Crenshaw, the creative force behind the company, doesn’t seem to want her there.

Not being wanted is nothing new for Emma…but she doesn’t know what she’s done to make Logan stalk around the office, growling every command as if her very presence infuriates him. She can’t afford to lose this job, so her plan is to keep her head down and try to avoid any contact with him—no matter how big and hot and unavoidable he is.

But a Santa hat full of names, an office gift exchange, and one unexpected knock at her door are about to shake up all of her plans.

This spicy romance book had me at red satin blindfolds, and an obsessed alpha male who talks dirty and knows exactly what to do with his big hands.

If you love the possessive hero who finally takes what he wants, then this is Christmas romance for you.

The Christmas Toy is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

The Christmas Toy
by Krista Wolf

They’re the three hottest guys in the office. Gorgeous, hard-bodied loners who always spend the holidays together, traveling to exotic places for excitement and fun. Only this year… they invited me.

When I took the place of Desmond’s ex-girlfriend on the guys’ annual trip, I didn’t expect much more than a fun time. But then I found Emma’s journal… and read all about the molten adventures she’d experienced with all three of them. Now I want the same thing she got for Christmas.

From skiing at Stowe to the hot tub behind the cabin, things get so heated I can barely take it. And when a blindfolded kissing contest has me practically melting away in their arms… will I have the guts to ask for what I want?

Snowed into a cozy cabin for Christmas with three times the love, three times the attention. Three musclebound alphas and an unspeakably hot diary detailing all the incredible, butterfly-inducing things they’ve done before.

Do I dare tell the boys I’ve read Emma’s journal? That I want to be taken by them. That my deepest, darkest desire is to give myself over to them, mind, body and soul?

This is the spicy Christmas romance book to pick up if you love the reverse harem trope or who choose books.

Alyssa doesn’t shy away from Mason, Rogan and Desmond and they are more than happy to provide exactly what she wants.

If you want to envision being tucked away in a snow-covered cabin with three hotties then I recommend this romance!

Gifting Me to His Best Friend is one of the best spicy Christmas romance books worth reading. Check out the entire list of spicy Christmas romance books on She Reads Romance Books.

Gifting Me to His Best Friend
by Katee Robert

This Christmas, my husband is going with an unconventional gift for his best friend. Me. It’s only supposed to be for one night… But one night becomes two, becomes our entire vacation.

There are no rules except the ones we make, and sharing me brings both Derek and Grayson closer than any of us could have imagined. This year, what happens in our bedroom will put all three of us on Santa’s Naughty List.

If Katee Robert is writing it, you know that this is going to be one spicy Christmas book that borders on the taboo.

You’ll be fanning yourself from page to page especially when the swords start crossing 😊.
