A Match Made at Christmas by Jenna Jaxon — Sophia must allow her grandmother to arrange a match for her, the name of the groom to be announced at a Christmas house party. So when Sophia finds the true love of her life, she has no idea if he is her grandmother’s choice or not.
It is always fun to discover new authors and what better place than a group of Christmas novellas. A Lord for Christmas has four hard to put down stories all set at Christmas. You can read them all at once or spread them out over time. However you choose to do it there is a lot to savor in the collection. In each the characters have to face a major problem that keeps the tension level high. Of course in the end there is a HEA for the pair. FYI in A Lord for Christmas I enjoyed meeting three new to me authors whose books will be on my reading list.
Read an Excerpt from Married by Twelfth Night by Ella Quinn
“Good morning, Markville.” Lady Hawksworth smiled at him. “Euphrosyne, allow me to make you known to the Marquis of Markville. Markville, my sister-in-law, Lady Euphrosyne Trevor.”
As he bowed, he admired her graceful curtsey. “My pleasure.” How old was she? Surely she was out. “Were you not in Town last Season? I am sure we would have met.”
Her cheeks colored slightly, not with shyness, but with barely subdued anger, Markville suspected.
“I should have been out last year, but our father decided none of us needed a Season.”
Well, that was plain speaking. He liked her better for it. “What a pity.” Her eyes flashed for a moment. When she turned toward a white horse, he approached her. “Allow me.”
“Thank you.” Lady Euphrosyne reached up for the saddle, clearly expecting him to cup his hands for her foot. Instead, he clasped her waist and lifted her onto the horse. Eyes wide, she stared at him. Now he had her attention. “That was”—she cleared her throat—“unexpected.”
For reasons he could not understand, Markville wanted more.
He didn’t know how strong her reaction was. Her breathing was steady, and the lace ruff hid any sign of her pulse. Only her eyes and words showed her surprise. Did she have a great deal of countenance, or was she cold? With a father like Somerset, Markville wouldn’t have been surprised at the latter, but there was something in the spark of her eyes that made him think she was anything but made of ice. Not to mention the energy he’d observed earlier.
