Posted October 8, 2021 by Marsha in Author ARC, Historical Romance, NetGalley, Regency Romance, Sexual Content / 0 Comments

The Duke of Greystoke’s Christmas Revelry is famous throughout the British Isles for its plays, dancing, magical grotto… not to mention scandals leading to the marriage licenses he hands out like confetti.

But not everyone welcomes a visit from Cupid.

Lady Cressida, the duke’s daughter, is too busy managing the entertainments—and besides, her own father has called her dowdy. Her cousin, Lady Isabelle Wilkshire, is directing Cinderella and has no interest in marriage. Lady Caroline Whitmore is already (unhappily) married; the fact that she and her estranged husband have to pretend to be together just makes her dread the party all the more.  But not as much as Miss Louisa Harcourt, whose mother bluntly tells her that this is her last chance to escape the horrors of being an old maid.

A house party so large that mothers lose track of their charges leads to a delightful, seductive quartet of stories that you will savor for the Season!

This is an adult 18+ story that contains language, possible violence, and/or sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

If you love Christmas Romances, especially Historical Romance then Mistletoe Christmas: An Anthology should be on your list as a gift to yourself.  Four of my favorite Historical Romance authors combine in this one to deliver a fun, sizzling, emotional glimpse into the annual Christmas house party thrown by the Duke of Greystoke – and more than a little mischief is going to happen at this year’s event.

The individual novellas included in this anthology are A Mistletoe Kiss by Eloisa James, Wishing Under the Mistletoe by Christi Caldwell, Compromise Under the Mistletoe by Janna MacGregor, and Mischief and Mistletoe by Erica Ridley.  I enjoyed all of the stories, of course, some more than others, but each reader is going to have their own favorites in this anthology.

I loved the overall arc to this Christmas Revelry party, it’s full of mischief, love found when completely unexpected, a bit of drama, lots of chuckles, and sizzling encounters galore.  I had fun here and without giving away spoilers, I think any reader who loves a good Historical Christmas Romance will fall in love with Mistletoe Christmas: An Anthology quite easily.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*

Available in a variety of formats including for your favorite e-reader
