6. Christmas with a View
A restaurant manager has to train a handsome new chef who proves to be quite the lady's man after his appearance on a popular reality tv show. At first the two are at odds, but soon something changes.
7. The Knight Before Christmas
A 14th century knight is magically transformed to modern day time where he meets a young teacher. She's not looking for romance, but sometimes that exactly when you find the one.
This one I was actually able to watch with my husband because its also a comedy. It's a little raunchy in places, but there is definitely some romance too! It's about two strangers who pretend to be together to face the holidays without all the family talk of relationships. They make a promise not to fall for each other, but you know how those promises end up.
9. Midnight at the Magnolia
Two local radio hosts Maggie and Jack are hoping their show will be syndicated. One thing leads to another and they somehow fake that they have a relationship which seems to ramp up their listeners. Like all lies, it eventually blows up in their face.
