For years, Lady Melloria Whitmore has believed her childhood best friend and secret love Brigham Clarke agreed to marry her out of a sense of duty. Knowing how important Brigham’s work with Parliament is to him, she agrees to see him once a year, when he returns to his country estate for the holidays. This Christmas, Mellie vows to give Brigham the one thing he has always wanted: an heir. For one night, she’ll share his bed, and she’ll have that memory of passion to get her through the long winter nights without him.


Except Brigham doesn’t want just one night—he wants forever. He’s loved Mellie all his life, and making her his Viscountess Whitmore was his dream. He just never thought Mellie returned his feelings. So when Mellie begins her seduction under the Christmastide moon, Brigham receives the best gift of all: his wife’s love.

My Thoughts:

This is another enjoyable quick read for the coming holidays by Christina McKnight
I read this novella in a single sitting and the only thing I can find wrong with it is a lack of build up of the characters.

We find them suddenly married as a matter of convenience when Brigham asks Mellie to marry him after her father’s death left them destitute and without a home. They have become homeless when a distant relative inherits and literally throws Mellie and her mother out.

Always in love with his neighbor Brigham asks Mellie to marry him presumably to give Mellie and her mother a roof over their heads.

Mellie has always loved Brigham and of course she answers yes.

After keeping his distance for many years Brigham arrives home for Christmastide as usual but now he intends to stay.

Will a revealing of their true feelings under the Christmastide moon be enough to save this marriage of convenience or will it end then and there?

I gave this short sweet romance 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.0 of 5.0 flames. This is a sweet holiday romance story with minimal intimacy.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this novella which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
