KISSED AT CHRISTMAS
Christina McKnight’s Bound By the Christmastide Moon
Silas Anson has spent his life dealing with other people’s mistakes. Now, as the Earl of Lichfield, he has a plan that will protect his siblings, and give him a chance at a normal life. His arranged marriage to Mallory Hughes should be perfect—except for one thing: she sees visions of the future. When a man determined to free himself from the shackles of the past marries a woman with precognition, happiness in the present may be just a kiss under the Christmastide moon away.
Ava Stone’s Once Upon a Midnight Clear
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! Lord Michael Beck courts scandal, living life to the fullest and dabbling in games of chance. Unfortunately, he’s neither heir nor spare to his father’s title, and the time has come to enter a profession. Michael is no soldier, and he certainly isn’t cut out for the cloth, so he embarks on the most scandalous and risky venture of his life. He will need capital, however, and collecting a number of outstanding gambling debts at a Christmas Eve wedding at Castle Keyvnor seems like the perfect place to start, at least until he stumbles across the lady of his dreams. But what are the odds the practiced gambler can win the girl without losing everything he’s worked for?
Michelle Willingham’s The Sweetest Christmas
Lady Marjorie despises the idea of marriage. After being engaged to a man who tried to command every aspect of her life, from what she wore to what she ate, she refuses to consider matrimony again. Though she isn’t at all opposed to playing matchmaker for her cousin… Sir William Crandall is startled when Lady Marjorie believes he is a shy, withdrawn knight in need of a wife. He has nothing at all in common with her bluestocking cousin, but he is fascinated by the spirited Lady Marjorie. Despite her attempts at matchmaking, he intends to avoid marriage at all costs, after being abandoned at the altar. But a stolen kiss, a feast of gingerbread, and two unexpected friends find that there is magic in the Christmas holiday and a match that neither of them expected…
Bound By the Christmastide Moon by Christina McKnight
I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
I always love the books I get from Christina. I love the world she builds so effortlessly. In this book, I loved the new twist she gives to our Lady Mallory. It’s something new she added to one of her books. She keeps true to her historical roots but adds a bit of fun to it along with mystery.
Silas has had quite a life. His mother runs away with him and his siblings. When he returns his father is dead and the family estate in ruins. He should follow the plan of an estate squire to keep his family name out of the gossip of the Ton. Silas is not thrilled but he will do what he must to keep his family safe.
Lady Mallory is traveling to meet her betrothed with her aunt in tow. She was promised that if she doesn’t find the Lord to her liking she is free to walk away and be a spinster like her aunt forever. However, sparks do seem to fly pin their initial meeting!!!
When Lady Mallory and Silas meet we see some chemistry but both are not sure of the other. Silas worries what Mallory will say when she learned of his family. Mallory decided to follow and then check in on Silas when she discovers he is not the most truthful of people. Mallory’s extra gift plays a part in the story making us wonder what is going to happen.
I loved the story and look forward to more in the series. The book was a great afternoon read on a super-hot day. It gave me reason to just sit on my butt and enjoy the air conditioning!! LOL
Christina enjoys a quiet life in Northern California with her family, her wine, and lots of coffee. Oh, and her books…don’t forget her books! Most days she can be found writing, reading, or traveling the great state of California.
