#1 The Wrong Heiress for Christmas

The Wrong Heiress for Christmas

 

Publisher’s Description:

A reclusive duke…
Lord Frederick Bowen, Duke of Salisbury, is expecting an heiress for Christmas. The fact does not bring him pleasure. Ever since the war ended, he would rather focus on experiments for his new waterproof material.

A commoner…
Celia might be the daughter of an earl, but she’s of the illegitimate variety. She has resigned herself to life as a maid for the wicked countess and her two half-sisters.

A Christmas house party…
When Celia’s half-sister begs her to pretend to be her, Celia finds herself in a fairy tale. Everyone knows though that fairy tales never come true…

My Thoughts:

What a delightful read!!

This sixth book in Bianca Blythe’s Matchmaking For Wallflowers Series seems to be a Holiday take on Cinderella. It includes a wicked countess, half sisters(one who asks Celia to pose as her), and a Duke who is her unlikely suitor.
This fairytale like Christmas Romance will engage the reader and keep your attention. I couldn’t put it down once I began reading.

Lord Fredrick Bowen is an unlikely Duke. He much prefers his chemistry experiments to anything society has to offer. He needs to marry to carry on the title so along with his mother he invites Lady Theodosia Fitzroy to his home and to a ball to be held there.

Lady Theodosia has ideas of her own. She is in love with a French Comte and intends to elope to marry him. She asks Celia to take her place and thus ensues our story.

Our basic rags to riches Cinderella tale turns into a wonderfully told regency romp.

I gave this delightful tale 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames. Our tale is mostly a comically sweet one with only one intimate encounter.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author via Bookfunnel to read and review as part of her review team. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.


#2 The Earl’s Christmas Consultant

The Earl's Christmas consultant

 

Publisher’s Description:

Flora has been masquerading as a French maid for years. Though she despises having to hide her skill at the piano and has no innate fondness for mending, she is happy to no longer be on the run. When a handsome earl who sent butterflies fluttering through her chest as a child discovers her French is atrocious, Flora is in immediate need of a new position, lest her true identity be discovered.

Christmas has never been Lord Wolfe McIntyre’s favorite season. His parents never celebrated it, and he never thought he would succumb to sentimentality as an adult. After all, he runs a gaming hell. But after his sister’s engagement is broken, Wolfe vows to host a magnificent holiday ball so his sister can find a husband before the next season. The only problem? His lack of knowledge about the holiday. 

Wolfe is shocked when his friend’s maid appears at his manor house in Scotland. When he hired a Christmas consultant, he was expecting a stern Bavarian woman with a knowledge of Yule logs, not an alluring young woman whom he last saw claiming a blatantly false identity and who seems distressed at seeing him. Wolfe is even more shocked when he discovers he… desires her.

Earls are certainly not supposed to find their servants appealing, no matter how much they fill their homes with Yuletide joy and music. But perhaps there’s a reason Flora looks familiar…

My Thoughts:

Why does Flora seem so familiar and what is she hiding from.

This is a delightful holiday romance with a touch of humor. This is the shortest read of the three books in this series and is easily read in one sitting.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.

This short tale has just enough sensuality and humor that you should breeze through the read.

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


#3 How to Capture a Duke

How to capture a Duke

Publisher’s Description:

All she had to do was find a fiancé. In four days. In the middle of nowhere.

One reclusive bluestocking…
Fiona Amberly is more intrigued by the Roman ruins near her manor house than she is by balls. When her dying Grandmother worries about Fiona’s future, Fiona stammers that she’s secretly engaged. Soon she finds herself promising that she will introduce her husband-to-be by Christmas.

One dutiful duke…
Percival Carmichael, new Duke of Alfriston, is in a hurry. He’s off to propose to London’s most eligible debutante. After nearly dying at Waterloo, he’s vowed to spend the rest of his life living up to the ton’s expectations.

One fallen tree…
When Fiona tries to warn a passing coach about a tree in the road, the driver mistakes her for a highwaywoman. Evidently he’s not used to seeing women attired in clothes only suitable for archaeology waving knives. After the driver flees, Fiona decides she may as well borrow the handsome passenger…
