I have a (not at all very secret) love of watching Hallmark Christmas movies. In fact, several of my mom friends and I have talked many times about having a pajamas and cocoa day in December to just sit and indulge in watching the Hallmark Christmas movies all day wihle the kids and spouses are at school. Maybe it’ll really happen this year. It may! Until the movies start airing round the clock in all of their magical Christmas viewing glory, now there are BOOKS we can read to pass our Hallmark loving time! This A Gingerbread Romance and A Royal Christmas Wish post is sponsored Hallmark Publishing.
“A Royal Christmas Wish” and “A Gingerbread Romance” out now from Hallmark Publishing!
These stories are based on a Hallmark Original Movie and available in paperback, e-book and audiobook! What a great gift idea for friends and family who love Hallmark stories, or Christmas in general!
A Royal Christmas Wish from Lizzie Shane
Life isn’t a fairytale…
Until it is.
Jenny knows she isn’t the princess type. Sure, she’s friendly and caring, but with her clumsiness and lack of self-confidence, glass slippers would only make her trip. When Dom, the cute guy she runs into in the park, turns out to be the prince of San Noelle, she figures he must not be her happy ever after.
But a mysterious countess grants Jenny’s one wish, and she finds herself married to this handsome prince! Unfortunately, at the stroke of midnight on Christmas night, her life will go back to normal.
In funny and touching ways, Jenny navigates royal traditions the best she can. But even as she grows closer to Dom, the clock is ticking. With love and a little holiday magic, could she somehow make the enchantment last forever?

A Gingerbread Romance Book from Lacey Baker
Nothing could be sweeter
than knowing your heart is at home…
Taylor’s architectural firm enters her in a contest in which the teams will design and build life sized gingerbread houses. After the contest, Taylor will likely be getting a promotion to a position in another city. But Taylor’s original partner soon backs out, and she needs to find a replacement.
When she meets Adam, a baker and single dad, at a local bakery, she convinces him to partner with her for the contest. After all, winning would give the bakery and his designs much needed exposure.
For years Taylor has been resistant to call anywhere “home” for fear it would only be temporary. But the time she spends with Adam and his daughter Brook in their cozy home, decorating for Christmas, and enjoying Philadelphia’s holiday traditions, fills her with a longing for a place to call her own.
About Author Lacey Baker:
Lacey Baker, a Maryland native, lives with her husband, three children, grandson and English Bulldog in what most would call Suburban America–a townhouse development where everybody knows each other and each other’s kids. Family cook-outs, reunion vacations, and growing up in church have all inspired Lacey to work towards her dreams and to write about the endurance of family and the quest to find everlasting love.
To date she has written in several genres including small town romance, YA paranormal (as Artist Arthur), a cozy mystery series titled Rumors and adult paranormal (as A.C. Arthur).
This Gingerbread Cake is inspired by the A Gingerbread Romance book!

Hallmark Channel is one of my most favorite channels ever. I’m so looking forward to their countdown to Christmas in October. I would love to read those books too.

Hallmark had some Christmas movies on in July, and I was so excited when the hubs went to sleep because I got to binge on watching Hallmark Christmas movies.
Oh wow I think his would be a great movie to watch with the family during the holiday season. The gingerbread cake looks so yummy!
Ice Cream n Sticky Fingers says
These sound like great books to read this holiday season. I wish that I had a bit more time to read because I love it. It is something that I need to start doing even if I can only read a chapter a day. I think I would like to read A Royal Christmas Wish First. It sounds like my kind of read.
Everything in this post is so Christmas! I would like to have A Royal Christmas Wish in my library!
Monica Y says
It looks like a great book. I love watching the Christmas movies on the channel, so I am probably going to enjoy the book.
Ruth I says
Hallmark offers the best books and movies. I think they are becoming more active during the holiday season. I can feel Christmas already.
I am a sucker for a good Hallmark movie or book. They are good, clean romances to enjoy. The food parings look absolutely divine for the holiday season.
I’m embarrassed to say I can’t remember the last time I’ve read a book that wasn’t a kids book. I’ll have to check these out as it is important to take time out to relax and what is a better way to do that than with a book?
Amber Myers says
These sound awesome! I will have to read these for sure. And I need to make that gingerbread cake.
Nancy L says
I love watching Hallmark movies. I don’t watch movies without happy endings and I know Hallmark movies will always have a happy ending! 🙂 My favorite Hallmark movie is A Royal Christmas.
Your food inspirations look delicious! 🙂
I don’t read romance books, but I enjoy watching the Hallmark movies. My Mom loves the books, so these would be perfect for her!
Alli Smith says
I vow that I am going to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie during the upcoming holiday season. I’ve never seen one. It’s just a busy time of the year for me but I’m going to take a break and watch a few.
