This novella was previously published in 2015 in the Christmas-themed anthology, What Happens Under the Mistletoe.

At a house party in the countryside, the joyful spirit of the Christmas season threatens to sweep Georgiana Trent under the mistletoe—and back into the arms of the dashing rogue who broke her heart two years ago. Little does she know that Lucas Godwin has no intention of leaving until he has reclaimed her as his own.

I wish this book had been longer, but that’s not to say I didn’t thoroughly enjoy this short and sweet novella. I just adored these characters and all their stubbornness. That’s really what fueled the chemistry and entertaining banter between Georgie and Lucas. The two together were just as charming as they were individually. It’s always heartbreaking to read about lost loves who’ve missed out on time together, but in this case, they more than make up for it.

I enjoyed the holiday season that the novella immerses you in. It was all very fun and quirky, and a happy second chance romance. A great holiday read to indulge in!

MEREDITH DURAN grew up enamored of British history. At thirteen years old, she made a list of life goals that included writing romance novels, trying sushi, and going to London to see Holbein’s portrait of Anne Boleyn. Now she is happy to report that all three goals have become her favorite things to do. When not studying, doing fieldwork in India, or working on her next novel, Meredith can be found in the library, browsing through travelogues written by intrepid Englishwomen of the nineteenth century
