All I Want For Christmas is the first lesbian romance where I truly embraced farce. It’s a romantic comedy at heart – my favourite genre – but it’s also where I stepped up the cringe-worthy farce factor, putting Tori Hammond through the wringer on her way to finding love. I defy you read the book and not laugh out loud, but also cringe out loud!
In case you weren’t aware, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love everything about Christmas: the tinsel, the lights, the music, the movies, the food – and especially the drinks. Mulled wine and a river of chocolate – what’s not to love?! But weirdly, much as I love Christmas, I didn’t get into Christmas books until around three years ago when I read my first Christmas romance and I was hooked. And let me tell you – Christmas books aren’t just for the season – I love to read them all year round. So this year, I thought I’d refresh my favourite Christmas lesfic offerings. So here, for your delight, are my top five festive picks! Continue reading » “Lesbian Fiction: My Top Festive Picks!”
This year, Christmas came early in the form of a fantastic review for All I Want For Christmas on lesbian fiction review site, Les Reveur. If you didn’t catch the five-star review, you can read the full article here – but here’s a snippet:
“I adored this book. I love Christmas and this book was a perfect way to get me in the mood, I even had my Christmas playlist playing in the background whilst reading… perfection personified. The writing was tight and very descriptive in the parts it was needed, which helped with imagining the characters better. This is definitely my No.1 Christmas book and I will be pulling it out again next December!”
What’s more, All I Want For Christmas was also picked as the No.1 lesbian Christmas book by the site, which I couldn’t be more thrilled about! You can check out the full top five books here by clicking here.
Hurrah and happy holidays one and all!

My new book All I Want For Christmas is due out October 31st and my excitement levels are so off the festive scale, I even went out and bought some mince pies to celebrate. Yes, that rock ‘n’ roll! Above is the cover for the new book, which I’m thrilled with. The story is a Christmas lesbian romance, and to tempt you more, here’s the blurb:
Christmas without a girlfriend sucks: no love, no presents, no sex. So Tori Hammond gives herself one month to find that special lady by December 25th. She’s got a dating app and she’s a woman on a mission.
However, Tori’s dates come with their own complications, and when her first love strolls back into her life, her world is sent into freefall. Will Tori land on her feet and find the woman of her dreams? And if she does, will it be who she expected?
From the author of Amazon best-sellers London Calling, This London Love and The Long Weekend, Clare Lydon has created another page-turner bursting with seasonal attitude and wit. If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, prepare to be swept off your festive feet.
I’ll be giving you a sneak-peek of the first chapter of All I Want For Christmas next week, so watch this space.
