“… this was a cute story.  It managed to weave in some sweet and playful moments and it kept things simple.”
~ Under the Covers

Yet another series I haven’t read and the only reason I picked it up is because I’m always on the lookout for a holiday themed historical romance at this time of year.  THE HEIRESS AND THE HOTHEAD was released last year as part of an anthology that I hadn’t seen and I had to jump on it when I saw it was being released as a single novella.

I was pleased to see this worked okay as a standalone novella.  I don’t think I had the opportunity to read this author before and I was quite happy this features a plot I hadn’t seen before.  The heroine, Amanda, owns a cotton mill in America while the hero Stephen is an English journalist trying to expose the bad working conditions at the local mills.  Meeting Amanda at a Christmas celebration is his one chance to write a new piece to expose the similarities between America and England in the treatment of workers in his quest for bettering their lives.

This is a quick story so I was expecting a bit of insta-love, and we certainly got that.  Being that they live in different continents and have such ingrained views about the other to overcome, it seems a bit far fetched that there would be an HEA after such short time.  But aside from that, this was a cute story.  It managed to weave in some sweet and playful moments and it kept things simple.  I couldn’t help but keep turning the pages, mostly because I enjoyed the authors’ voice.  I’ll be looking forward to going back and reading the first book soon.

About Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas).

At home in front of a crowd, Jeffries is a sought-after speaker, as evidenced by her 2010 gig as emcee for the National Romance Writers of America’s 30th Anniversary Awards Ceremony.

Whatever time not spent speaking to organizations around the country or writing in a coffee-fueled haze is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music.

With over 9 million books in print in more than 20 languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics (she has a Ph.D. in English literature) for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.

She always dreams big.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.
