Publisher’s Description:

Temptations or Priorities…?

Determined to help her oldest sister make ends meet, Louise Potter accepts a governess position in the northern part of England. If this means accompanying an older gentleman on his travels, then she will. There’s only one problem: Louise is about to discover that her travelling companion is not the elderly man she expected, but rather seduction itself…

Alistair Langley has no desire to share his carriage with his niece’s newly hired employee. But the matron he expected to find at his door is instead a beautiful young woman, one he knows he can’t travel alone with. After all, he’s going to visit his brother who is pressuring him to marry and produce a Langley heir–or be cut off from inheritance. When he confides in Louise, together they form a plan. But the closer they become, the more temptation beckons…

Until finally a choice must be made: Love or money? Or is it possible to have both?

My Thoughts:

I am reading all three of these novellas and I accidentally read book #2 first.

It is OK to read them out of order though as the first two reveal nothing of the content of each other. They do fit nicely together though they are fine to be read as standalone titles. Assumptions can most definitely lead to surprises!

Louise Potter’s family has a desperate need of funds so when she is offered the position of governess to three young boys she readily accepts. Her new employer also offers her a ride to her new position with the uncle of her new employer. Her employer’s oldest son is eleven after all so the man must be nearly in his dotage.

On his way to meet the lady his brother has arranged for him to marry, Alistair Langley has no desire to share his carriage ride with the governess his niece has hired, but he loves his niece and relents.

The woman must be in her forties and stuffy anyway, so he intends to spend the journey sleeping. Imagine both their surprises to find young, attractive and desirable people rather than their mistaken assumptions.

Can this inopportune beginning lead to a love neither thought to ever find?

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and an sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames. This is a sweet rather than steamy romance.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Finding love again is the best Christmas present of all.

It’s two days before Christmas and bestselling children’s author Grace Alberts needs to fulfill a promise—to make it to a book signing for the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the place that did so much for her during a very rough time. But the weather’s getting awful and all flights are cancelled out of Boston, where she’s wrapping up her book tour. Then in walks her annoying but extremely sexy ex-husband, who (as usual) thinks he’s got all the answers.

Graham Walker just stopped by to get a book signed for Grace’s biggest fan, his niece, and wish Grace a Merry Christmas—why not? But he soon finds himself troubleshooting her dilemma. He’s got a Range Rover that can plow through a hundred-year Nor’easter. He’s even headed home to Philly. Trouble is, Grace’s and his past is a disaster, something he has no intention of reliving while driving through a winter storm, no matter how much he once loved her. And maybe still does.

Bad weather has a way of bringing out the best and the worst in people, and when a run in with some deer antlers leads them to a forced stop in Mirror Lake, Connecticut, anything can happen, naughty or nice. Maybe a bit of enforced alone time and some Christmas magic can be just what it takes for them to face their past—and each other—once and for all.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed reading this charming second chances Christmas Novella. It was my first time reading anything by this author as I do not read much contemporary romance being more a fan of historicals.

Graham and Grace’s background story of separation due to the loss of their newborn son is a poignant tale that shows us how tragedy can lead to misconstrued feelings and bad results.

Now they meet again unexpectedly. Will this meeting with an offer of a ride in inclimate weather lead to a reconciliation?

I gave this wonderfully written Holiday Romance 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. There is only the one intimate scene in this short read but you can tell that this couple’s breakup was a mistake.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this novella from the publicist to read for this release blitz. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
