Overview

Come explore Regency London with Carla! This collection features four stories that will warm your heart with Christmas cheer:

The Christmas Ornament: When the father of his now-deceased best friend hints that he should consider his daughter as a potential wife, Lord James Crandall isn't sure he can get past the fact that he used to tease her mercilessly when she was just a girl. But once he finds out how brilliant her mind is, he's not sure he can get past the fact that she's a woman. Add in the fact that her charms have garnered the attentions of other gentlemen, Lord Crandall is in for quite the roller coaster Christmas.

Make a Joyful Noise: Widower Marquis Peter Chard is grateful for his two children, but not so grateful when his mother gives him the chore of recruiting people for the parish Christmas choir competition. When recently widowed and pregnant Rosie Wheatherby turns up with the voice of an angel and the looks to match, Lord Chard isn't about to let her get away from the choir . . . or his family.

An Object of Charity: Stuck on land while his ship is being repaired, Captain Michael Lynch is approached by his late first mate's niece and nephew. Learning they are destitute, he decides to take them home with him for the holidays, returning for the first time in 22 years ago. As he spends more time with them and unburdens his heart to the young woman, she replaces his hurt with love in time for a very special Christmas.

The Three Kings: After her brother is shot by the French in Spain, Lady Sarah Comstock is forced to travel across the war-torn countryside with a Spanish Colonel. As Christmas quickly approaches, Sarah learns about the Three Kings giving gifts to the Christ child and finds a gift of her own that she can share—her heart.

Filled with romance and a touch of humor, these stories are sure to find a place in your heart and remind you that Christmas is a time for love.

Kelly's delightful collection presents four distinct Regency romance stories set during the Christmas season. All feature smart, strong heroines who still need to be rescued by the right man. In "The Christmas Ornament," old neighbors Lord Waverly and Sir Waldo conspire to bring their single, intellectual children together. In "Make a Joyful Noise," two young widows with children find they may be able to save each other. Returning from sea, Capt. Michael Lynch is in for a surprising holiday in "An Object of Charity," while the final tale trades England for Spain and centers on a woman hunting for Christopher Columbus's original documents along with a Spanish soldier trying to guide her to safety. VERDICT Charming, witty, and full of tender romance, this is a must read for fans of Regency romances.

I honestly loved this book. Though I will say it was just mostly short stories that had short mentions about Christmas and it being that time of year. I'd say this is appropriate for 16+ year olds and it has clean romance in it.

4 STARS This is a collection of four short novellas that are a romantic, entertaining and clean reads. I like the characters and wanted the stories to be longer. These are good if you just want a good short Christmas story. All four stand alone. They make you thankful for what we have and also how we can help each other this Christmas Season. The characters are good and you want things to work out for them all. The settings are Regency from England to Spain I was given this ebook to read and in return to give honest review by Netgalley Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc. (October 1, 2013) 240 pages

Wonderful!  Its hard to find a good collection of romantic Christmas stories. Carla Kelly's collection is an excellent one which is even rare. Scattered among these very different short stories, we have bluestockings, close families, poverty, humor,  PTSD, a pregnant heroine, shy hero all set in a historically enchanting Christmas setting. The steam level is low but the quality of the romance is high.  I was given this book for my honest review but I had actually read and enjoyed this collection before.
