Christmas is a time for rekindling love in five new historical romance novellas.

These couples will be sheltering from blizzards and hiding in wardrobes, reuniting with old flames, stealing mistletoe kisses, and falling in love.

Passions are reignited by Snapdragon, a fiery Regency party game, but who will receive the best Christmas present of all-a happy ending?

Immerse yourself in the romance, snow-covered landscapes, and blazing hearths of a heart-warming, sensual, Regency Christmas.

This is feel-good reading at its best:

Happily ever after for you and help for women in need.

170,000 words, 28,000 – 40,000 per novella.

All complete, original, never-before-published novellas (no samples or stuffing).

All proceeds will be donated – the authors aren’t being paid for this anthology.

Content Notes can be found after the Copyright page.

Heat level: medium (~one love scene per novella)

A Midwinter Wager by Elizabeth Keysian
Her viscount’s been stolen…
When her stepsister tricks her noble beau into a fake engagement, Miss Francesca Heathcote tires of playing nice. She’ll even risk ruin to win him back. A game of dare, a wager and a night in a haunted room offer a chance to set him free, but her conniving stepsister has one more ace up her sleeve…

Christmas wore Plaid by E. Elizabeth Watson
When Scarlet Fever forced Emerson Lindt to move to England, her only consolation was Brady MacInnes’s promise of writing-letters that never arrived. When she returns to Scotland years later, Brady is adamant that he never betrayed her. And though poverty plagues Scotland and stretches Brady’s pocketbook, their love for each other flares anew. Can a Christmas miracle and the spirit of giving finally grant them a future together after they were denied marriage so long ago?

A Pineapple in a Pine Tree by Eve Pendle
Five years after breaking Amelia Chilson’s heart, he’s back. Robert Danbury wants the mistletoe kiss Amelia denied him years ago, but nothing more; loving a woman again is an unthinkable risk. Then they’re caught innocently in bed together and Robert has an instant to choose: Amelia’s reputation, their lost love, or his conscience.

Let it Snow by Diana Lloyd
When he stole her first kiss one Christmas, Tobin Everleigh didn’t realize it would be ten years before he got another. Saffron Thomas is determined to forget the kiss and the boy who called it a folly. When fate brings them back together for a holiday celebration a fiery game of Snapdragon gone wrong and a midnight dash through a snowstorm proves their attraction was no game.

A Captain for Christmas by Evelyn Isaacks
Georgiana Throckmorton is eager to return to social life after years of isolation in the north of England. When she’s invited to spend Christmas with an old friend she never expects to be reunited with her first love-Alexander Forrester, who ran away to the sea after he made love to her. Passion reignites once again, but past hurts loom over their second chance at love.

My Thoughts:

I read all five of these novella length stories and enjoyed them all. Let it Snow was a particular favorite. This is funny as I had not previously read this author’s work.       These two found love after being acquainted as children. They had shared a first kiss after a game of Snap Dragon, a stolen kiss by Tobin that Saffron wasn’t sure she liked. Now after only seeing each other a couple of times in the ensuing years they find themselves thrown together after a disastrous house party.

I also liked A Captain for Christmas quite a bit. This was another author who was new to me. This couple were reunited after Georgiana the death of the man she married who was much her senior. Her first love who felt she betrayed him is also a guest at a gathering of a family that they were not aware the other knew. This is a second chance romance of an older and somewhat wiser couple.

The rest of these stories were by authors whose work I was already familiar with.

All of these stories were enjoyable and none of them would receive a ranking below 4 of 5 stars from me.

This collection as a whole gets a 4.5 star of 5.0 rating from me. There is one love scene per story and the heat differs in each one.

Be prepared to be consumed by these romantic holiday tales.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of these books to read by invitation. This in no way affected my opinion of this collection which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A reporter running from love. A cruise ship director longing for home. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a relationship before the ship docks for the last time?

Natalie James will do anything to land a journalist job with her favorite travel magazine—even report on Toujour’s first ever singles cruise. After a string of one-sided relationships, she longs for the escape of vacationing around the globe. Even if that means watching professional matchmakers help naïve couples fall in love.

Shawn Erickson has spent a decade wasting away as a specialty cruise director while coming to terms with the accident that cost him his military ambitions. But he’s done running. Now he has a new dream—to open his own travel agency with the bonus he’ll get from hosting Toujour. After so long spent adrift, he longs for the stability of a permanent address and family.

When Natalie crashes into Shawn in the buffet line, their spark of attraction is undeniable. But as the cruise draws to a close, their tangled emotions reveal hidden wounds. Can a Christmas miracle help them build a real relationship before the ship docks for the last time?

This is a full-length sweet/clean contemporary romantic comedy that will delight readers who love Hallmark movies. Each book in this series by USA Today bestselling author Lindzee Armstrong can be read as a stand-alone.
