Book Description Christmas at Falstone Castle · Sarah M. Eden

The Dowager Duchess of Kielder eagerly anticipates spending Christmas with her son and his family. Though their relationship has been strained, the duchess is determined to heal the chasm. Even with the help of the widowed local vicar, her plan will take a Christmas miracle. But during this magical season, anything is possible . . . even two second chances for love.

The Heart of Christmas · Anita Stansfield

When a chance meeting brings together a gentle seamstress and a widowed banker, each lonely soul finds a first hint of hope. As their lives become entwined, it will take Christmas spirit to guide a broken family to love and healing.

’Tis the Season to Be Daring · Esther Hatch

Elizabeth Davenport has had quite enough of the London Season. Determined to evade a parade of unsuitable suitors, she seeks help from the one gentleman who has no regard for Society’s rules. All of Society knows Lord Hawthorne is not interested in marriage, yet he cannot deny Miss Davenport’s unique charm. And as the Christmas season works its magic, their charade begins to feel less like playacting and more like love.

The Christmas Dress · Joanna Barker

Seamstress Nell Addington is thrilled when her childhood friend Jacob Hammond commissions a dress for his sister. But when Nell realizes her feelings for Jacob run far deeper than friendship, an unexpected snowstorm—and some holiday cheer—may convince them both that love is worth fighting for.

My thoughts:  Oh, the joy of reading!  This book was so much fun to read.  Sometimes I get so bogged down in my reading list that I lose track of how much fun it is to read.  This collection reminded me of the joy and contentment that come from reading a good book.

This collection of novella's feature some of my favorite author's.  Particularly, my favorite character of all time.  Sarah Eden was brilliant when she created the character of Adam, the Duke of Kielder.  "Christmas at Falstone Castle" revealed some of Adams past and laid a basis for his cantankerous, ornery, snarky self.  Seriously, I considered the story a heaven of words.

Anita Stansfield's story was sweet.  It made me think of the joy of finding a home and people to love.  The spirit of Christmas was present in the story.  Self-sacrifice and acceptance of another make the season brighter.

I think I think I may have a little book crush on Charles from Esther Hatch's story.  The characters were light and fun.  They were on the daring side of Regency behavior.  I couldn't wait to get back to the story whenever I had to take a break.  I was a very unconventional story.  I relished every moment of it.

Nell in "The Christmas Dress" was a wonderful character to read about.  To continually look at the good part of life even when circumstances haven't treated you kindly is a gift.  Her talents do not stop at being a seamstress.  She breathes life back into a family in desperate need of cheer.

My take on this collection?  Read it!  You won't be sorry.
