A Country Christmas is the newest addition to the Timeless Regency Collection. Again we have three authors’ tales of regency only this time at Christmas.
Josi Kilpack starts us off with her novella Saints and Sinners. Eloise very much wants to be looked at as the woman she is by one man and one man only, her childhood friend Neville. Neville has only thought of Eloise as his friend and like a younger sister till his traveling companion makes a devilish wager. Neville, not wanting Eloise to get hurt, convinces himself he is only looking out for her best interests not anything else. So ignoring his better sense and his very loving feelings toward her, he makes some very ridiculous bumbling attempts to make her happy. This was probably my favorite of the three and had me laughing and sighing throughout.
Carla Kelly in her novella The Christmas Angle gives us quite a different sort of a hero in Able Six. Coming from a very poor background, given away at his birth, Able has a remarkable talent that was very interesting. He was a hero that I really wanted to succeed but knew he needed a remarkable love interest. He found that in Merilee and I was really intrigued with these two. This story ended well with a promise of more adventures with these two that I am looking forward to reading just because they were such a different set of characters.
The Perfect Christmas by Jennifer Moore shows us that sometimes we can find blessing in misfortune and sometimes that can show us what we really wanted all along. This one was a sweet love story about a very cheery fellow who is in love with a woman who has lived a rather battered life. We also are treated to three other characters that rounds out this Christmas story quite nicely.
I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a positive review and all views expressed are my own.
