Publisher’s Description:

When a headstrong beauty clashes with the man she once loved, she’s determined that the spirit of Christmas will open his mind, heal his heart, and perhaps give them a reason to celebrate—for many seasons
to come . . .

As far as Ethan Fortescue is concerned, his family’s seat in Cornwall is only a source of torment, one that he’s managed to avoid for two years. Now that he’s the Earl of Devon however, he can close the door on his haunted past by locking up the cursed place for good. But upon arriving at Cleves Court, he is shocked to find the house aglow with Christmas celebrations, filled with music and laughter. And right at the center of the holiday madness is the infuriating—and eternally tempting—Theodosia Sheridan . . .

Thea has always loved the town of Cleves, especially at the holidays. As a girl, she also loved Ethan with all her heart. It’s painful to see how his brother’s tragic death has embittered him. Still, she will do anything to make sure the town thrives—even if it means going to battle with Ethan to save Cleves Court. Now she has only until Twelfth Night to make a Christmas miracle happen—by proving that his childhood home can be a source of love and wonder. But before long, she finds herself wondering if she’s trying to save the house—or its handsome master…

 

My Thoughts:

Reviewed November 14, 2017

This novella has it all. It is a blend of humor, a tragic background, and sensual intimacy.

Anna Bradley has brought all of these elements together in this delightful holiday story.

Ethan wants nothing to do with the home that holds such tragic memories.
The loss of his mother and his brother at Cleve’s Court has him wanting it closed forever.

Thea has been in love with Ethan for most of her life. She is certain that he will find his way back to Cleve’s Court even though it is the source of his pain.
Now he has returned, his only intention to close up the house for good.

Will Thea be able to change his mind? Will her efforts to save Cleve’s court and the home he wants nothing to do with lead to a future together or will it tear them apart?

I adored the trio of orphans. The twin boys and their younger sister were a source of joy and laughter. Their antics made them an essential part of this wonderfully written holiday story.

I gave this book a solid 5 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is not only hot but surprisingly sweet.

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

A lady out for vengeance collides with the one man that can stand in her way.

The lady bent on vengeance.
Lady Canton has a list. A list of men she is ruining, one by one. The work is satisfying—as each and every one of the despicable men deserves it—and if Livia has to bend the rules of propriety for success—so be it. What she doesn’t anticipate is a past love barging into her life, determined to stop her.

The man that will stand in her way.
Lady Canton threw him over years ago to marry a lecherous old fool for his title, so the last thing Lord Reggard wants is to entangle himself with her again. But when Livia threatens to ruin one of his best friends, Tieran is forced to take matters into his own hands to stop her.

A second chance at first love.
Livia never stopped loving him, and Tieran is intent on using that fact to his advantage. Never mind the callousness of his actions—his loyalty to Livia died years ago and he has no desire to revisit the past with her. Yet the past may be the one thing Tieran cannot escape, and he may very well discover he never stopped loving her as well.

Note: The books in the Lords of Action series by K.J. Jackson are each stand-alone stories and can be read individually in any order. These historical romances are set in the Regency and Victorian eras, and do not shy away from scenes with steamy heat, occasional naughty language, and moments that might possibly make you squirm.
