From the Scottish highlands to the bustle and tussle of London, to a hotel on the outskirts of town, three unforgettable authors bring the joy of Christmas romance in Kissing Under the Mistletoe.
Great Scot! by Suzanne Enoch
Miss Jane Bansil knows she will never have a fairy-tale moment. Well past the marriageable age, she’s taken a position as a companion and is now stuck in Scotland for Christmas, alone even in the middle of the boisterous MacTaggert family. But when Brennan Andrews, an architect, and cousin to the MacTaggerts, arrives to draw up plans for a new family home, Jane must decide if she will take a chance at a happily-ever-after, or settle into her small, safe life for good.
Christmas at Dewberry Hollow by Amelia Grey
Miss Isabelle Reed has no plans to ever fall in love. She has a perfectly acceptable life with her mother at the Dewberry Hollow Inn, thank you very much. But when Gate, the Duke of Notsgrave’s grandson, appears at Dewberry Hollow searching for a carving on a tree, Isabelle cannot help but get involved. But Gate’s charm and their instant attraction make Isabelle question if she’s willing to take her chance at love once again.
My Mistletoe Beau by Anna Bennett
Miss Eva Tiding is determined to cheer her widowed father with the perfect Christmas gift. Even if it means breaking into the home of the rakish Earl of Frostbough who swindled Papa out of his pocket watch. But when the earl, Jack Hardwick, catches her in the act, they strike a deal: she’ll pose as his fiancée in exchange for the watch. Falling in love is not part of the plan—but with a little Christmas magic, anything is possible…
Title: Kissing Under the Mistletoe
Author: Suzanne Enoch, Amelia Grey, Anna Bennett
Genre: Historical Romance, Christmas Romance
Published: September 28, 2021
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
My Rating: 4.5 stars
While I love Historical Romance year-round there is something special about the holiday stories with all the lovely (and often, odd) traditions of the past to discover… as well as some extremely charming fun romances like those found in Kissing Under the Mistletoe.
Each novella in this anthology is full of romance, Christmas Spirit, and unique situations for each couple. We even have a touch of a previous series when one special character finally stars in their own story. I don’t even have a favorite among these stories for each one gave me a couple to cheer for, an interesting situation, and a story full of the holidays – it’s hard to pick just one, so I didn’t even try.
If you love a Christmas Romance any time of the year but especially starting now then you’ll want to pick up Kissing Under the Mistletoe right now. It’s a fun gathering of three stories that are sure to capture your heart this holiday season.
