“…this was enjoyable and sweet and full of holiday charm.”
~ Under the Covers
This was my first Holiday read of the year and to my surprise it was a lot shorter than I was expecting. Yes, I know, it’s a novella. But I was still expecting a bit more. I have read other novellas where the author manages to give me enough story in the page count that I’m satisfied with their HEA. In this case, although I enjoyed the novella, I felt the HEA it was rushed.
As far as the characters go, I really enjoyed Crispin, the Duke of Hurst, and our unlikely heroine Miss Gwen Primm. Her family is definitely one that I would love to read more about because they are all women with personality that don’t care to follow the rules of society and etiquette necessarily. So in that respect, Gwen was right along my alley. Especially when the first thing that happens when she meets the hero is that she hits him in the face with a fruit basket. 😉
I would’ve loved to see this fleshed out in a full length story just to lend more credibility to the fact that these two have fallen in love and are headed for marriage. Nevertheless, this was enjoyable and sweet and full of holiday charm.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
