My Top 5 Christmas movies by Cindy Skaggs + Giveaway

My Top 5 Christmas movies
by Cindy Skaggs

I have a confession. I’m a Christmas movie junkie. It started with those beautiful red and white dresses in White Christmas, and next thing I knew, I was sitting on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of merlot; strung out on Lifetime and Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. I can’t seem to stop myself. The romantic comedies are my favorite. Sure, I take a break every now and then to watch Scrooged—I’m not a complete heathen—but it’s really all about the romance. Here are 5 of my favorite Christmas romance movies:

1. Holiday in Handcuffs with Mario Lopez and Melissa Joan Hart. Add in the fake fiancé trope with a struggling artist who needs a fiancé for Christmas. Did I mention the fake fiancé didn’t go willingly? Hence the handcuffs. Lighthearted and fun.

2. While You Were Sleeping. Technically not a “Christmas” movie, it takes place over Christmas, so it counts. This time, Sandra Bullock is the fake fiancé. Sort of, but she ends up falling for the brother (Bill Pullman). It’s a beautiful thing.

3. A Holiday Engagement, starring Jordan Bridges who plays—wait for it—a fake fiancé. I might have a thing for that trope. If you watch the trailer, you know the fake fiancé as the brother on Rizolli and Isles.

4. The Holiday with Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black. Two women change homes in different countries for the holiday. Great fun. Plus Jude Law.

5. 12 Men of Christmas, starring Kristin Chenoweth and Josh Hopkins (Grayson from Cougar Town). She plans to help a Search and Rescue team raise money for their equipment with a calendar. A nude calendar. Enough said.

There you have, some of the many Christmas movies that I watch and love. Enjoy!

An Untouchable Christmas by Cindy Skaggs

Book # 2 in the Untouchables series

This holiday is one she will never forget. 

Sofia Capri survived life as a mob wife, but living with drop-dead gorgeous FBI agent Logan Stone has its own challenges. Step one? Host his family for Christmas dinner.

Rescuing Sofia from her former mob life and saving her kidnapped son was enough to earn Logan a place in her life, but a mysterious phone call before dinner threatens the security he'd give anything to provide.
When Sofia's son and Logan's nieces disappear from the festivities, the illusion of a normal Christmas shatters, hurling Sofia back into her nightmares.

Each book in the Untouchables series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
