You’re Invited to Carina Press’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Party!


Did you know that December 18 is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day? To celebrate, we’ve found sweaters for ten characters from recently published and forthcoming Carina Press titles.

Tell us in the comments which is your favorite and if you’ll be wearing an ugly Christmas sweater this year!


Riding Dirty by Jill Sorenson

For riding dirty

A felon turned informant, Dirty Eleven MC leader Cole “Shank” Shepherd is fierce, sexy and knows how to treat his lady right. This lusty reindeer sweater is what Shank would wear to the MC Christmas party—that is, if he wore a shirt at all…


Jefferson Blythe, Esquire by Josh Lanyon

In this fast, fun and dead-sexy male/male new-adult caper from multi-award-winning author Josh Lanyon, twentysomething Jefferson Blythe gets lost, gets found, falls in love and comes out…all in the span of one wild summer. With all that running around, we thought an airplane-themed ugly sweater would be suitable.


Controlled Burn by Shannon Stacey

Rick Gullotti is another character that we wouldn’t mind seeing at the Christmas party without an ugly sweater! But he’s a team player, so after a long shift of saving lives, we suspect he’d arrive in this one.

Adrian Gottlieb is a successful video game designer…who falls for ultraconservative geoarchaeologist Noah Walters. While he decides if he’s ready to level up, he’ll have just enough time to program a few games of his own—maybe in this ugly Christmas-meets-code sweater.


Under the Spotlight by Kate Willoughby

Even though San Diego Barracuda right winger Joe Rutherford’s hockey career is fading, we’re predicting big things for him this season. We’re placing bets that he’ll score an amazing romance with stage actress Christine Caspary. No doubt this ugly sweater will help. Don’t you think so?


Truth of Embers by Caitlyn McFarland

Rhys and Kai finally get their happy-ever-after in book three of the Dragonsworn trilogy. If the Council holds a festive potluck, we think these matching sweaters would be on fire among dragonkind.


No Room for Error by Lexi Carmichael

Trouble has found Lexi Carmichael yet again in the latest book in the Lexi Carmichael Mystery series. Luckily she’ll have this sweater as comic relief as she tries to fend off her enemies.


Crazed: A Blood Money Novel by Edie Harris

Casey Faraday was a soldier before he was a spy, but family always came first, no matter what. The only things that can save the Faraday siblings are their dangerous talents and each other. And perhaps this rockin’ ugly Christmas sweater…

Issabella Bright and Darren Fletcher have been fighting for justice in Detroit. Check out Motor City Shakedown and Dying in Detroit to see which of them belongs on the right side of this sweater.


Countdown to Zero Hour by Nico Rosso

“Family recipes and daring choices lead a rambunctious chef to a gangster’s kitchen in this vividly written, action-packed contemporary.” —Publishers Weekly

The characters in Rosso’s suspenseful novel might have a knife fight over which would get to wear this foodie sweater!

    Controlled Burn by Shannon Stacey. I have a sweatshirt that says “Don’t stop Believin'” on it, with Santa in aviators.

    I was hoping there would be more photo-shopped covers. The Shannon Stacey one was very funny.

    Good job!

    Lexi’s sweater (No Room For Error) is the best of the lot. According to one of my nieces any sweater vest is ugly, so therefore, I do ugly every year. ;)
