    The title of the charming Christmas story indicates Ms Kiyono’s light and delightful sense of fun to the reader.

    Phillip Peartree, the tenth Earl of Bartlett suffers from the result of a shooting accident that has left him disfigured and hard of hearing and has given up on attracting a wife. While Lady Amelia Partridge has no desire to become the property of some uncaring husband she is aware that with her brother’s imminent wedding her life is about to change.

    Add a series of accidents and circumstance which keeps throwing these two together it is a matter of how Ms Kiyono weaves them together that keeps you turning the page.

    It is easy to imagine yourself as part of every scene thanks to the author’s light yet vivid and charming writing style. You could be forgiven for thinking that in such a short story it would be hard to develop depth of character, but Ms Kiyono’s characters, including her minor ones all play their parts well.

    If you are looking for a short Christmas story to read, this will fit the bill.

    A lot of fun to read! I won this book in a contest, but I've discovered that anything by Patricia Kiyono is worth purchasing.  The book was fun to go through and easy to follow.  The characters were easy to get along with just enough drama to make it believable.  I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a cute book - and the main character loved books as much as we do!

    Never say never in love!
    The Duke Philip had always dreamed of settling down with a good woman and living a peaceful life, but a hunting accident shattered that dream. Scarred and nearly deaf he is resigned to spending life alone, but hope shows up in the form of Lady Amelia. She is hard worker with no time for frivolities. She spends most of her time educating the poor children in the city. The rest of her time is spent in secret. Unfortunately it’s a secret that she believes will drive Philip away no matter how interested in her he is.
    The story is a one of hope and seeing past the surface of others to see the real beauty within. This is a beautiful romance that will have you turning each page in anticipation. It’s a fast paced and heartwarming read that romance fans will not want to miss.
    Amelia is a responsible and warmhearted young woman who truly deserves a happy ending. She does everything she can to help those in need, especially the children. She also helps to spread the love of reading to everyone around her and strives to make the world a better place.
    Philip is a really sweet man who was losing hope, but meeting Amelia changed that. It was nice seeing him open up to her and fall in love with her for who she truly is. I also liked seeing him learn something new and also try his best to help out those who are in need. Seeing him with the children was so sweet!
    A sweet romance that will warm you heart.
