Mistletoe Kisses and Yuletide Joy ~ Holiday Contemporary Romance ~ Hot New Release
A box of Christmas delights from bestselling romance author, Jo Beverley. Jo Beverley is a member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, and has been described by Romantic Times as "one of the great names of the genre." In the box -- three novellas set at Christmas, a description of Christmas in the Regency period, and some seasonal recipes, new and old.
***A Gift of Light --- First published in 1996 in The Christmas Cat. Miss Kitty Mayhew is spending the first Christmas since her parents' deaths quietly, but she ventures out to find the owner of raucous tom that is keeping her awake with his caterwauling serenades to her own cat. When she encounters a half-dressed manservant she's shaken, especially as he's impudent and far too handsome for his own good. When she learns that he's the Earl of Felstowe hiding from Christmas revelries she knows she's bitten off more than she can chew. But the earl is now in determined pursuit of her.
***The Christmas Wedding Gambit --- Viscount Greystoke is at the end of his tether. A local chit is claiming that she's pregnant with his child and her family is demanding that he marry her. If he refuses, the girl's brother will call him out. And now the chit's fat, plain sister has invaded his house to suggest that he marry her instead. It's taken all Frances Guysley's courage to take this bold step, but she knows it's the only way to avoid disaster for both families. A hasty marriage in Gretna Green could put all right -- if Lord Greystoke doesn't throttle her first.
***Star of Wonder --- This story is set in 999 AD, when many believed the world would soon come to an end. Wulfhera of Froxton is preparing to become a nun, but social tumult and Viking invasions send her home, where she finds the people either praying or drinking as they await the end. One of the drunkards is the man she's always secretly loved. Raef is devastated by deaths in battle and enraged over the loss of his estate to a Dane, Magnus Ravensbringer. To make matters worse, Hera's sister was captured by Magnus and liked it so much that she's run back to him. As Hera tries to hold everything together, an old legend comes into play, offering hope, but requiring her to betray Raef in a way he might never forgive.
This boxed set also includes an essay about Christmas traditions in the real Regency and some seasonal recipes. It would make a great small gift for anyone with an e-reader. There's a gift card for you to print out here. http://www.jobev.com/giftcard.html
