Overview

To Lady Amelia Wellesley, it seems utterly romantic to surprise her dashing fiancé at his home in Texas so the two can marry by Christmas. But Amelia's surprise goes awry when Carson Kitteridge calls off their wedding as soon as she arrives, leaving Amelia in disgrace. . .

With nowhere to turn, Amelia finds an unlikely savior in Carson's brother, Dr. Boone Kitteridge. Boone offers to marry Amelia, sparing her the shame of returning to England unwed. But Boone isn't just protecting Amelia's honor; secretly, he finds her irresistible, and the thought of indulging his desire for her is too tempting to ignore. As Boone and Amelia forge a fragile bond, something goes terribly wrong--and it will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle for Amelia to discover who she is destined to love. . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Spurned by her duplicitous, silver-tongued fiancé after she heads to Texas to surprise him, Lady Amelia Wellesley is forced to depend on the reluctant hospitality of Dr. Boone Kitteridge, the man's brother, until funds arrive from England for her trip home. When Amelia's brother and his wife arrive unexpectedly and lay out the dismal future in store for her if she returns to England unwed, Boone shocks everyone, himself and Amelia included, by proposing. VERDICT A marvelous hero, hardwired to save and protect, and an impulsive, sometimes foolish heroine who matures nicely find love, despite a rocky start that includes some boulder-sized obstacles. This tale features a number of memorable secondary characters and reprises a few from Goodger's earlier Marry Christmas and A Christmas Scandal. Goodger lives in Rhode Island.

    Not a Christmas story

    The story started off very well but after reading up to chapter five, it began to drag. It had some good scenes but it did not take twenty chapters to have this couple realize that they were in love. Again, this is not a Christmas story. It should have been titled the The Texan and the English lady imperfect love story. If you decide to read the book, I recommend you read the other two stories first.

    In this story I felt the writer did a good job of displaying the behavior of a twenty year old immuture herione.

    What makes me like the story is the writers ability to show that the industrial revolution was becoming more prominent, more modern technology was seen in the story and you could feel American intergration into English society.

    Though I read this book some time ago, the memory of this book caused me to purchase one of the author's early books in the series(A Christmas Scandal which is equally good.) So if you're looking for a great Christmas read, start with Marry Christmas, then A Christmas Scandal before finishing up with this jewel.

    a warm late Victorian tale

    In 1894 Lady Amelia Wellesley arrives in Small Fork, Texas from England. Her first impression is go back home to Meremont immediately as this wild frontier is nothing like that described to her by her fiancé Wild West show performer Carson Kitteridge.

    Amelia quickly learns that Carson the charmer is a duplicitous person. He fabricated many things including their marriage. Carson's older brother Dr. Boone Kitteridge is a stable no nonsense person. He has quickly fallen in love with the Englishwoman and offers to marry her. Although she does not love Boone she accepts his proposal. They travel to England where he becomes the village doctor and she his wife. However, doubts leave their relationship tenuous at best.

    The latest Jane Goodger Christmas historical romance (see A Christmas Scandal) is a warm late Victorian tale. The support cast is solid, but it is the American doctor and his aristocratic English wife who turn A Christmas Waltz into a poignant story; as he is Running Scared (Roy Orbison tune) of the return of his brother in their lives while she fears she will never love her caring husband.
