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!

three stories in one.

Dear sT. Nicholas
What we'd really like for Christmas this year is:

An Irish Estate
A Family
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

Curiously, I think these stories are presented in this anthology in the order of their quality. I liked Lisa Kleypas' novella I WILL (the first in the book) very much. I would have been happy to have this story expanded into a whole novel, but even as a novella it's excellent - maintains a nice tension & has good characterizations. And Lisa Cach's PUDDINGS, PASTERIES AND THOU is very good. It's a sweet love story and also funny. Thereafter, things slide downward; Claudia Dain's UNION gets boring quickly; the last story is utterly forgettable.

A lovely collection of Christmas-themed short stories. The Lynsay Sands story was the weakest of the lot and fairly boring. The others were charming holiday stories that just hit the spot.
