The sweetest gift is the hardest to unwrap. . .

Lady Victoria Allen-Hill never dreamed she'd be a widow at twenty-one--let alone a virgin. Her father insists that she attend a matchmaking house party in the snow-covered seaside town of Pevensey in hopes she'll find a suitable husband. But for Victoria, it's an opportunity to indulge in a passionate affair--and the handsome inventor she meets at the Christmas Eve masquerade ball may be just the man for the job. . .

Lewis Noble is the cousin of London's famed Redcake sisters, so it almost stands to reason that he's just as irresistible as one of their sugar-iced pastries. Lewis catches the eye of every woman at the party--but Victoria is the only one who catches his. He won't be tied down in her father's business, but watching other men court her amid a flurry of engagements ignites a jealousy he's never felt before. A dose of honesty may be just the thing to mend their broken hearts--for many holidays to come. . .

"Before I realized it, the unusually strong and well-developed characters of The Kidnapped Bride had sneaked up on me and captured my full attention. This is one of the best shorter books I have ever read." --Delle Jacobs, author of Lady Wicked

"A delightful, sexy glimpse into Victorian life and loving with two wonderfully non-traditional lovers." --Jessa Slade, author of Dark Prince's Desire on His Wicked Smile

I have to say that I am really glad that women have more say now than back then. Even if it was the Victorian era. Heather sure knows how to find her stories and make her previous characters just as real as the last time we met them. Victoria was double cursed. She married her first husband in an arranged marriage. Then she loses him soon after. Now she is a widow who has never slept with her husband and still young enough to be under her father's thumb again. She meets Lewis at a house party. He is an inventor and is always working. There are many spoilers in this story of many stories. It seems as if everyone is getting married so you must read this book to find who marries whom. If you haven't read her previous books this one will get you hooked on her. I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

This is book 5 in the Redcakes series. Lady Victoria Allen-Hill never imagined that she would be a widow and a virgin. Looking to have a passionate affair before her father makes her re-marry, Victoria thinks that inventor Lewis Noble would be the perfect one to divest her of her unwanted status. Lewis knows that Victoria must marry again and he is not willing to bend to her father's dictate that the man she marries relocate and run his business. But Victoria has caught his eye and he isn't about to turn down her offer of coming to his bed. But what does it mean when he becomes jealous every time a potential suitor vies for Victoria's hand? I enjoyed this story. It's not often that you find a widow that is in need of divesting herself of her virginity. It also wasn't your typical ton romance and that made it all the more interesting to me. It's always fun to see what the Redcake family is up to and this holiday store will not disappoint you. Thanks go out to eKensington via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

Lady Victoria Allen-Hill never dreamed she'd be a widow at twenty-one--let alone a virgin. Then there is Lewis Noble the cousin of London's famed Redcake sisters (I want to read this series for my self just to see if its all true). A house party seems the perfect place for the two to meet and make a little holiday magic. This was my first read from Hiestand. She has given me a holiday read make me happy and to follow up on the Redcakes series. Thanks to NetGalley and the delightful Holiday Read.

She walks in, looking for a long lost friend. She sighs and sits at a table, knowing 'they' would ki<_>ll her if they found her out here.
