About this ebook

From sweet kisses under the mistletoe to passionate encounters at holiday house parties, secret identities to second chances, find your Christmas cheer in these twelve different historical romance tales from bestselling and award-winning authors! The lord you've been looking for might be just a story away...

ONCE UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR (**medium) - Ava Stone

Only a duke will do for Lady Ivy Dallimore. If her unhappily married sisters have taught her anything, it’s that love is fleeting but a title lasts forever, which is all well and good in theory until she finds herself falling for the scandalous third son of a marquess who is bound and determined to make his fortune in trade! 


He's an unbendable lord. She's an unstoppable force. When these two clash, their winter nights will never be the same!

Love was not part of the plan when this marriage was arranged… Can a matchmaking courtesan in disguise save this match before the new year dawns?

LADY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE (*mild) - Deb Marlowe

Neither Lord Ellesworth nor Miss Glenna Bolton have much Christmas spirit this year. Neither have much desire to travel during the season, either, but a Star in the East, an abandoned child and a quest for holiday cheer might just convince these two that love is the best gift of the Season.

A WINTER WISH (*mild) - Nadine Millard

Mariah Bolton is as headstrong as she is clever, as strong-willed as she is beautiful. She enjoys her life and, apart from a rather snobbish mama, she is happy with her lot. Imagine her consternation then when her world is turned upside down by the brooding and aloof Mr. Brandon Haverton! 

LYING BENEATH THE MISTLETOE (***hot) - Sadie Bosque 

Matilda needs a miracle. She left Henry, her first and only love, over a decade ago. Now she’s back and determined to piece his heart back together. But she only has one night to do it.

A VERY MERRY VISCOUNT (*mild) - Jane Charles

The thought of spending Christmas at Danby Castle with her matchmaking great-uncle fills Lady Tabitha Storm’s heart with dread, until she spies the handsome horseman from Hyde Park. Would Andrew Delaney, Viscount Straffan, receive more this holiday than he ever dreamed, or would his Irish heritage stand in his way?

THE LADY’S GUIDE TO A HIGHLANDER’S HEART (***hot) - Emmanuelle de Maupassant

Meet a young bride in disguise and a battle-hardened Highland warrior in this passionate 'enemies to lovers' medieval romance.

MASKED LOVE (*mild) - Nicole Zoltack

An evening of enchantment has a maid wishing a lord might look past his station this Christmas season.

A SNOWLIT CHRISTMAS KISS (**medium) - Larissa Lyons

When a mischievous feline nudges two lonely souls together on a wretched, snowy night, a few Christmas kisses might be all they need. But he’s engaged, and she’s decided to never marry, so in the morning they go their separate ways, leaving pieces of their hearts behind...until a Twelfth Night Ball brings misunderstandings to light and merry tidings to one and all.

Great fun anthology of historical romance set during the Christmas holiday season. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys quick reads and introductions to new authors. Table of Contents provides a quick gauge of story heat. Wide variety of stories, very enjoyable. Received copy from one of the authors for an objective review, and I can say that all the stories I have read in the collection are winners.
