In AVA STONE’s The Counterfeit Christmas Summons, Lady Emma Whitton has decided its time to take her future in her own hands. She has been in love with Viscount Heathfield since she was in leading strings. Unfortunately, it's been almost that long since she's laid eyes on her brother's old friend and vice versa. Tired of waiting for him to remember her, Emma pens a holiday invitation (in her brother's hand) to Heathfield and waits as patiently as she is able for her one true love to arrive. * Heath isn't quite certain what to make of the very strange summons he received, but his curiosity is most definitely piqued. He heads north to Danby Castle, only to find that his very orderly life is about to be turned upside down.

Drew, the scoundrel, seduced her, though she very much enjoyed the seduction by the man she’s loved since childhood. Left scandalously ruined, Char flees her home intent upon forgetting Drew and proving her worth. * Separated by disloyalty and pain, each struggle to bury the memories of the other until a mandatory summons from the Duke of Danby sets them on a path of collision to Danby Castle.

Editorial Reviews

Rakehell Reviews - Valarie Pelissero
Summons from Yorkshire is the first in a four part set of anthologies about the Duke of Danby summoning all his grandchildren home for Christmas. First up is The Counterfeit Christmas by Ava Stone. The Counterfeit Christmas was a very cute story. I just love it when the hero gets his socks knocked off by his friend's now grown up sister. They are so much fun, and this little novella was no exception.

    Wonderful!!

    I had the pleasure of reading Julie's novella and I cannot say enough about it! I found the story absolutely wonderful. Her writing never disappoints me. Her stories are feisty and magnificent yet compassionate and romantic. You will find yourself moved by the story and characters, all the while praying that somehow Char and Drew finally find happiness together.
