Featuring the RITA Award-winning novella "I Will" by Lisa Kleypas. 4 excellent Christmas Regencies in one great book. Puddings, Pastries and Thou, by Lisa Cach; Union by Claudia Dain, and All I Want by Lynsay Sands make up the menu. You'll love all four. In I WILL, a young lord convinces a "spinster" lady to pretend an interest in order to keep his disinterested by dying father from disinheriting him because of his dissolute lifestyle. She agrees in order to keep her younger brother out of the gaming hells. Can you guess what eventually happens? PUDDINGS tells the story of Vivian Ambrose, a poor relation, horribly mistreated, and what the Christmas Spirit brings to her life. You'll feel warm all over after reading this one! UNION tells Clarissa's story, and her compulsion to marry only an Irishman, never an Englishman, although she's "coming out" in England, and neither she nor her family understands WHY she feels this desperate need. ALL I WANT is both funny and touching, a story about a girl who sets out to keep her father from putting the family in the poorhouse with his gambling, starts a crusade against a gambling house run by a Lord, and --well you can guess the rest. Needless to say, the wish list is complete by the end of the book. A very satisfying read!
4 witty, warmhearted and sexy tales to keep you warm this holiday season. The one by Lisa Kleypas is very good-read and enjoy:)
three stories in one.
Dear sT. Nicholas
What we'd really like for Christmas this year is:
An Irish Estate
A quiet elopement
Someone to close down all of the London clubs-(like whites)
Marriage to a man who is honest,loving, sexy, handsome, and titled.
But we know there aren't enough of those to go around...are there?
For hopefull English ladies
This was okay. Better than I thought it would be.
Good book. The first story was the best of the four.
