Underneath the Mistletoe by J. Greene
Author J. Greene has blessed us with this fun and sexy romance short story that pairs up best friends Brianna and Carson this fine Christmas season.
Brianna and Carson have been best friends for 20 years, but Brianna has been in love with him for longer. Each Christmas, they pretend to date so his mother doesn’t try to match him up with a stranger! This season, though, is going to be far different than the previous ones.

Another N.G. Peltier fantastic free holiday-themed short story is Elixir Fixer. This is an F/F romance short where the heroine is pining after her best friend during her father’s Christmas party!
Her Secret Santa by CK Brown
One of my favorite tropes this year has been best friends to lovers. I’m surprised because I used to not enjoy it as much but wow, the romances that have released this year with this trope! Her Secret Santa is a delicious treat that will give you everything you want and more.
Diana and Zaccheus have been best friends since childhood. They also made a pact that if they haven’t been married by age 35, they would get hitched.
Miss Dominguez’s Christmas Kiss by Lydia San Andres
This short story is part of Miss Dominguez’s Christmas Kiss and Other Short Stories anthology, but Lydia is offering this sweet F/F romance on her website. In the anthology, you can also find two other holiday shorts that are very worth the low price!
In this lovely romance, two women find themselves being roommates in the same boarding house. After one kiss, what will happen next?
Stranded with Mr. Snow by Amber Samuel
Savoy Miller is doing her usual trip to her family’s estate. But she never expected a blizzard to suddenly appear. The only option she has is to take shelter in Snow’s Bakery with the one and only Mr. Snow. Maybe being stuck in a deserted town on Christmas Eve isn’t so bad after all…
grateful. by Alexandra Warren
Changing it a bit from winter holidays to fall holidays with this Thanksgiving short!
Blayke isn’t ready when she sees Julian, her one night stand who told her she was going to be his wife, at the Thanksgiving Eve neighborhood dinner. After only knowing each other for 21 hours, Blayke ghosted him. But seeing him again is making her feel a certain way and she cannot help but give it a try one more time.
All Sweet, No Bitter by Christina C. Jones
For this story, I highly recommend reading Anika and Royal’s story first, Bittersweet, because they are the protagonists in this as well!
You can never go wrong with a Christina C. Jones story and she does have a lot more stories on her website, many holiday-themed.
For whenever you have a break in your daily life, you can choose to read one of these holiday-themed short stories. They will be there for you when you have some time!
