I originally read this story as part of A Very Scandalous Holiday Anthology (which I gave a rating of 4) and when it showed up as an Amazon freebie over the summer, I figured I would pick it up to read again near the holidays.  It is a cute story of two childhood friends that fall in love.  But one has no fortune and needs to validate his ability to take care of her.  So off he goes - but things don't happen the way he planned.  Now that he's returned she's a bit peeved at him and he needs to win her back before Christmas. As I said, it was a fun read, but it didn't really stand out to me.  At about 64 pages it is a good one to read all at once and the story does keep moving at a nice place.  It was just a tad too cliche for me to rate it much higher.

Well done for so short a story I connected with characters as if a full length novel loved it

This is the first book I’ve read by author Amber Lin. I was first drawn into the story by the beautiful beginning to the 1st chapter, and happy to find each chapter began with a little snippet even better than the chapter before. Very beautifully written pieces. As I read, it was easy to detect what each of those snippets were, and that made me enjoy them more. Ms. Lin has a beautiful way of writing. She draws you into the scene with all five senses. Her descriptions are so well written, and her love scenes are sweet and erotic at the same time. I really liked Sidony. She had a teasing quality to the way she handled Hale, even though she was angry over the fact that he’d stayed away longer than promised, and that he didn’t write as he’d promised. And Hale, let’s just say he is one of the sweetest, sexiest heroes. His depth of feeling for Sidony was well done. The love that this pair felt for each other was so strong, and you could feel it in every scene they shared. I’ve always been a sucker for a good reunion type story and I wasn’t disappointed. And even though this story has Christmas in the title, it’s one of those sweet stories that can be read any time of the year. I really enjoyed the Christmas songs littered throughout the story as well—I wanted to break out the Christmas music and join the festivities. This novella was packed with everything needed to help you connect with the characters, get to know them and their reasons for traveling the paths they did, and to root for them to work things out. I enjoyed this quick read—it was the perfect way to wind down after a busy day.

I really love Entangled Publishing because I have found so many new & new-to-me authors who write such heart melting & pantie dropping romances! Amber Lin is now on my list of new-to-me authors who ROCK my book COSMOS! This is my 1st Ms. Lin read, but I am reading her Falling for a Pirate, book #2 of her Men of Fortune series, right after I write this review. Sidony (I love this unique name) was introduced to me by falling out her bedroom window in to a tree because of her troublemaking kitty & that is how her 3-years-gone-and-not-1-letter Captain Hale Martin found her. I personal have a furry grandson who is endless trouble walking, so I can relate. Hale is the illegitimate son of a Viscount & the woman who would die for him. His mom was all about his father & he felt like an afterthought. Hale went to sea to make his fortune, so he could marry up with Sidony. Sidony was pissed because he never wrote her in 3 years. Hale only has 3 days to get her to marry him, do you think he can grovel enough for her hand? This quickie by Ms. Lin was full of knee melting moments & Hale & Sidony have passions aplenty! Ms. Lin writes my favorite way, with hilariousness! I mean falling out a window into a tree all because of a stubborn kitty is making my top 5 favorite intros. Ms. Lin has earned me as 1 of her NEWEST (insert pompoms here) FANS & I will be collecting as many Amber Lin's romances that my poor bank account can take. Ms. Lin gets my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes for this troublemaking kitty romance read! NetGalley ARC was given for my honest review & I SO BOUGHT IT, TOO!

This is book 1 in the Men of Fortune series which was previously published in A Very Scandalous Holiday Anthology. Sidony Harbeck can't believe that Hale Martin is finally back. After waiting for him for three years, he expects her to say yes to his marriage proposal. How can Sidony say yes to a man that couldn't even write one letter to her the whole time he was gone? Captain Hale Martin is back to claim Sidony for his wife. When she says no to his proposal, he reverts to their childhood games of placing bets with each other.  Can he convience her to marry him in three days or will he have to walk out of her life forever? This was a very quick read. The story was enjoyable but it didn't have the depth that some writers have with short stories. Since this was the first book by this author that I have read, it gave me a taste of her writing style. I am intrigued enough to put the next book in the series on my to-read list. The next book in the series is Falling for the Pirate which comes out on July 21. Thanks go to Entangled Publishing via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

LETTERS AT CHRISTMAS by Amber Lin is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #1 in "The Men of Fortune" series. A novella, only 64 pages, but packed full of holiday spirit and love. While, "Letters at Christmas" is a quick read, don't let it stop you from reading this fast paced tale of love re-united, passion with a sweet balance between romance, passion and love. Well written with engaging characters. A nice introduction into "The Men of Fortune" series. Well done! I am looking forward to more from this series! Received for an honest review from the publisher and/or publicist. RATING: 4 HEAT RATING: MILD REVIEWED BY: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
