I bought this book especially for the "THE BLACK BEAST OF BELLETERRE". I love the b&b theme. One of my fav stories!

A heart-warming collection of Christmas stories, although only the first is new [A Holiday Fling], and contemporary. The other four are historical romances, and had appeared in other collections, but all are worth re-reading. There's the mistaken identity story [Christmas Cuckoo]; depressed young man traveling and finding love [Sunshine for Christmas]; the wrongfully discharged young emigre seamstress rescued by one who finds her irresistible [The Christmas Tart]; and the disfigured young man who falls in love with a beautiful artist [The Black Beast of Belleterre].

Putney does not disappoint; she tells compelling stories that hold the attention even in rereading. Once you've read one of her stories in an anthology, you'll want to dive into her full-length books; I did, and am still burrowing my way through her works.

A collection of Putney's previous Christmas stories [from the Regency Christmas books] plus one new story - a contemporary loosely related to The Spiral Path. Good reads.
