Original Title: Definitely, Maybe in Love
Author: Ophelia London
Publisher: Embrace, Entangled Publishing
Release Date: October 28th 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Spring Honeycutt wants two things: to ace her sustainable living thesis and to save the environment. Both seem hopelessly unobtainable until her college professor suggests that with a new angle, her paper could be published. Spring swears she’ll do whatever it takes to ensure that happens.

“Whatever it takes,” however, means forming a partnership with the very hot, very privileged, very conceited Henry Knightly.

Henry is Spring's only hope at publication, but he's also the über-rich son of a land developer and cash-strapped Spring’s polar opposite. Too bad she can't help being attracted to the way he pushes her buttons, both politically and physically. As they work on her thesis, Spring finds there's more to Henry than his old money and argyle sweaters…but can she drop the loud-and-proud act long enough to let him in? Suddenly, choosing between what she wants and what she needs puts Spring at odds with everything she believes in.

Definitely, Maybe in Love is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice that proves true love is worth risking a little pride.

Christmas Music

- Guest Post by Ophelia London

Hi there. I’m Ophelia London, and I’m so happy to be on your blog today to talk about all things Christmas!

There are so many wonderful things about the holiday season. The chilly weather, the fashion (I love layers and boots!), the food (eggnog and cheese logs, anyone?), the wintry decorations, time with family…I could go on and on.

One of the things I love most about this time of year is the music. Something about being indoors a lot and being cold and you’re pretty much forced to snuggle up and…whatnot. Since I made a whole playlist of make-out songs for my last book, obviously sexy songs have been on my mind lately. Heehee. Which got me to thinking…are Christmas songs allowed to be sexy? Of course!

Here are some of my favorite romantic holiday songs.

We’ll start with the standard: “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” There are tons of versions of this song. Sara Bareilles and Ben Folds recorded a really cool one last year, but tried and true, my favorite version is still the one by Esther Williams and Richardo Montalban from the movie “Neptune’s Daughter.” The vocals aren’t great but hello, it’s Richardo Montalban…

I’ll just throw this out there: Anything by Elvis. But if I have to choose one, I’d say “Merry Christmas, Baby.” He talks about presents, growls about making out under the mistletoe. Plus, ya know, it’s Elvis.

Love me some Michael Buble, too. Smexiest of his might be “All I Want for Christmas.” First of all, his voice is all melty and dreamy, second, his version kick’s Mariah Carey’s overplay ass, lastly, the image of MB waiting for a kiss under the mistletoe makes me happy.

But my current favorite romancy Christmas song is “That’s What I Want for Christmas” by SHeDAISY. It’s very lyrical and tells a sweet little love story. And who doesn’t want a cute guy to say I love you for Christmas?

(Here’s a lovely live/acoustic version:

Now that you’ve heard my suggestions, what do you think is the sexiest Christmas song?
