Moriah Densley has done it again in writing a touching novella about a strong, well-educated woman looking for love. The main character, Mary, longs to be appreciated for who she is but thinks that she is not attractive compared to her thin sisters. Wesley, the man who wants to win her love, has a reputation as a rake. I liked the interplay between these two characters throughout the book. The book ended too soon however and left me unsatisfied. I know that a sequel is planned but somehow I still wanted more out of this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This short story, which contains approximately 75 words, was an engaging read that is highly recommended. Moriah Densley has a way with words that I find most clever and refreshing. This story contains a rake, a heroine with a mind of her own, and humorous secondary characters that had me smiling along the way. I think this author is wonderful with her winsome way with words and heartwarming romance stories. I think you should read it today :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Mary Cavendish is someone I met in Song for Sophia. The good news is you don't have to read that book first in order to know what's going on. Her figure isn't like her sisters' or aunt's and she's trying to resist all the temptations the holidays bring with delicious food and get down to her dream corset size. Mary could be almost any woman who isn't happy with her body. It's really easy to sympathize with her, as most of us have been in her shoes. She volunteers and gives her all at the hospital where she meets the (in)famous Sir Wesley Darcy to whom she has an attraction she can't deny as much as she tries and would like to. Sir Wesley on the other hand while definitely more experienced than Mary is attracted to her and more than willing to be honorable about his intentions while being slightly ungentlemanly. He just can't resist her. I really enjoyed the dialogues between the two. I also felt my mouth water with Ms. Densley's luscious descriptions of the Christmas feast and treats Mary was trying to resist. My pasta dinner just didn't cut it after that.
4 stars really doesn't say how much I liked this novella. 4.5 is more realistic. I'd love to give the novella five stars but I've docked 0.5 for two reasons: 1. I was overwhelmed and confused by all the names bandied about in regards to those present at Rougemont. And the second reason was because it was over too soon. I know, it's a novella so I wasn't going to get a 300 page book, but I want to know what happens next with Mary and Sir Wesley Darcy! The plus side is that there will be more to their story so all I have to do is wait. Humph. I do not like waiting, but since The King of Threadneedle Street, the next book in the series, will be coming out within a month I think I'll manage somehow.

Oh, how I love this author's descriptive writing style! I've always considered myself the queen of short sentences and use as few words as possible to explain myself, but this author has me beat, hands down. She speaks to my heart with her writing and with such wit...I found myself chuckling throughout this short romance. The love scene in the library in this novella had me holding my breath and then exhaling loudly with a thumping heart...I swear I was swooning! The way it ended has me believing there's got to be another story that comes after this...and I can't wait for it to be released! I am so glad I was introduced to Ms. Densley and her books a few months ago. I intend on reading everything she writes. Readers will not be disappointed in her stories a single iota.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sweet and Charming Christmas novella!
I have just read Moriah Densley’s new novella "Mary's Christmas Knight" and I find it charming! This Christmas-themed novella fits chronologically between Song for Sophia and The King of Threadneedle Street, her previous books. I loved her characters; the story was funny and delightful to read! Sir Wesley Darcy, a famous actor, has been robbed and his shoulder is injured, so he ends up, on Christmas Eve, at the hospital where Mary is a volunteer worker and a nurse. As soon as she meets him, she finds Wesley an arrogant man. But she cannot resist to be tempted by this handsome Rake and she does not want to fall to his seductive charm. Mary is still a woman in need of tenderness and passion, will she be tempted? Will she let her heart fall for this handsome man? Will Mary resist Wesley? You will have to read this short novella to find all the answers. The story-line was very well written. I am never disappointed with Ms. Densley stories which keep me captivated until the end. She is an excellent writer and one of my favorite authors. This Christmas novella is filled with tenderness and charm. Get yourself be pulled into Mary and Wesley’s story, it’s the perfect Christmas novella to put you in a festive mood.
