Kay Springsteen has perfected the Christmas Regency romance. Teach Me Under The Mistletoe was absolutely wonderful, I could not put this book down. The characters, even the ones who only make a brief appearance, are all wonderfully developed, the story was not rushed. It flowed perfectly.
Kitty (Lady Catherine) has it in her mind to catch the attention of Lord Strathern by kissing him under the mistletoe. A comment was made that a young girl of her age without any true suitors is destined to be a spinster. Kitty wants nothing to do with that, and nothing to do with the "boys" that are interested in her. She wants Lord Strathern, a man who has travelled the world and seems to be interested in more mature women. Kitty decides that she needs to learn to kiss the way a man likes to be kissed so that she can gain the attention and then the affection of Strathern. Kitty asks Hugh McCollum to teach her how to kiss.
Hugh knows that he should deny Lady Catherine her request afterall he and his older brother could lose their jobs if anyone found out that he was talking to her let alone teaching her how to kiss. There is something about her that he just cannot resist. He knows he is in trouble when he begins to fall in love with her. He does not want to see her with any man, especially the likes of Lord Strathern. There is nothing that he can do, he is beneath her.
I actually developed a "book crush" on Hugh. This is what a man should be like. This book is certainly one that I will be reading again in the future.

Kay Springsteen's Teach Me Under the Mistletoe was an entertaining read. Lady Caroline (Kitty) has already spent two seasons in London without attracting the attention of a suitor. She now fears she is headed down the path to becoming a spinster. After all she has set her eye on a worldly man and she has yet to be kissed! She approaches stable hand Hugh McCollum for lessons in kissing, so that she can capture the attention of her worldly man. What follows is a beautiful story of Hugh and Kitty’s budding relationship as he helps teach her.
While the storyline of this book could have been very predictable, Kay Springsteen threw in a couple of surprises to keep us on our toes throughout the book. Her characters were compelling and had distinct personalities. Hugh is a sexy Scotsman who is quick to come to Kitty’s defense (very hot in my book!!!) Kitty, while a bit insecure about herself, definitely is a woman with a mind of her own! Their interactions with each other were sweet and fun to watch.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sweet, fun regency romance and a sexy Scot swooping in to save the day!
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I received an ARC (advanced readers copy) for this book and i must say, its such a great book. I love Scotts and their brogue. Kay has suck a great way of writing. Its not over detailed, causing the reader to loose focus on what is actually going on in the story. She doesn't leave to much out either though, rushing threw the story. I love the story, and though its completely obvious what will happen in the end, I still couldn't stop reading. The story flows so well and I have nothing but praise for this book! A must read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I never wanted to wear a ball gown more than I did while reading this! While I could tell where the story was going to end up, I had so much fun getting there! Lots of fun little twists and turns and walks through the garden. I loved the humor, the clandestine meetings and the action (yes, there was some action). I also loved how the sisters in the story came together. This was the first book I've read by Kay Springsteen, and it won't be my last! Perfect book to curl up with, with a cup of hot chocolate next to you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
