Anne sweet teeth SpiethIt might be a week before Valentine's Day, but we're already feeling the love!

This morning Anne "the Sweet Teeth" Spieth presented all the latest and greatest titles at the New York Public Library Romance Book Buzz. She also brought homemade chocolate chip cookies in lieu of books saying, "My mom always told me the fastest way to someone's heart is through their stomach."

While sadly we can't share any of her cookies with you, we CAN share our love of great romance titles (har har!): everything from contemporary/paranormal/historical romance to sizzling hot erotica, New Adult, and books OK for YA!

Take a look at the full Edelweiss collection, which has even more red-hot reads than what was presented (120+ titles!!!), download the handout of presented titles, and check out the hijinx that ensued while live-tweeting the buzz at #RomanceNYPL.

Without further ado, here's what's hot in 2014:

Holiday Cheer!

Holiday Cheer!

Christmas is only one week away! Why not take some "me" time and curl up with a mug of hot cocoa and one of these Christmas books:

THE DOGS OF CHRISTMAS by W. Bruce Cameron
OY THAT FACE!!
We may prefer felines over here, but just try to resist those sweet puppy-dog eyes!
The story is a sweet one too: a guy falls for a gal at the animal shelter AND the litter of Christmas puppies he's fostering. Awwwwww! And as our brilliant friend Annie Mazes from HarperCollins’ Library Lovefest says: totes adorbs!! 

ON STRIKE FOR CHRISTMAS by Sheila Roberts
Joy and Laura and the rest of their knitting group decide to go on a Christmas strike-no wrapping, shopping, cooking, or decorating for them! But as Christmas Day approaches, the ladies and their husbands confront larger issues in their marriages and discover that a little holiday magic is exactly what they need to come together. 

CHRISTMAS BLISS by Mary Kay Andrews
Savannah antique dealer Weezie Foley is doubly distracted by her upcoming Christmas wedding to her longtime love, chef Daniel Stipanek and by the fact that her best friend and maid-of-honor BeBe Loudermilk is due to give birth any day—and is still adamantly refusing to marry her live-in-love Harry. 

CHRISTMAS KEEPSAKES by Donna VanLiere
This collection of two bestselling books in one includes THE CHRISTMAS SHOES and THE CHRISTMAS BLESSING. Young Nathan Andrews lost his mother to cancer as a child, and dreams of being a doctor. Later, as a medical student in his third year, Nathan continues to learn lessons about faith, blessings, and sacrifice.
