Eugenia is a strong confident woman who knows what she wants, and what she doesn't want. The matriarch of the Burnett sons, Eugenia has made it her business to find partners for her three sons. Now that the tables have turned and her daughters-in-law are matchmaking Eugenia with Wyatt, Eugenia wants nothing to do with love. Especially when it includes Wyatt. Eugenia's character was so comical. Getting every single available woman to ply Wyatt with more casseroles than he knows what to do with, is enough to drive him crazy. There is only one way to take care of Eugenia and that is to take matters into his own hands. When it comes to Wyatt and Eugenia, I find myself grinning at the repartee. What a sweet and touching love story.  The Christmas Bride is a delightful and dazzling read written by a very talented author. I have never read any of Ms. McDaniel's books. However, after reading the story description, I found myself anxious to snuggle up to my first Sylvia McDaniel romance. The romance between Eugenia and Wyatt, did not disappoint and even had some unexpected turns that turned out to be quite steamy. After reading their touching love story, I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. If you are looking for an intriguing story line laced with humor and enchanting characters, look no further than The Christmas Bride by Sylvia McDaniel.

I usually do not read or listen to historical romance stories, but when given the opportunity , I thought I would give this story a try. I really enjoyed it. Though it’s part of a series, it’s a stand alone . What I enjoyed most was the fact that the main characters are in their forties. Eugenia is a mother of three married boys, with families of their own. Her deceased husband was a tad dictatorial and now that she is by herself , she is enjoying her freedom to do and say what she pleases. She is also known as the town’s matchmaker. Wyatt is a widower whose wife was a friend of Eugenia’s. Though they never acknowledge it, there was a spark between these two. Wyatt is determined to court and marry Eugenia , while she is adamant to staying single. As far as she is concern , she doesn’t need or want a man. It was fun to see these two interact. Things didn’t go smoothly for Wyatt. Will they get a chance of a second chance at marriage and love, or will the stubborn Eugenia get her way? A well developed plot with complex characters that will entertain you. My only but was that in the audiobook, though Eugenia is in her 40s, her voice sounded like the voice of a woman in her 70s. I was gifted an audiobook of this story. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

What a great story this was, thoroughly enjoyed reading about Eugenia being the one being courted by Wyatt. She was the one doing the matchmaking and doesn’t want to marry again so she sets up to get Wyatt married so he will forget about her. She underestimates him and he sets her straight telling her she is the only one he wants and is interested in. What a stubborn lady Eugenia is, but she has her reasons, and I love Wyatt’s ways of trying to get through the walls that Eugenia had set up around her heart. She thinks she is content with the way her life is, but not until it’s too late does she realize what she has been missing. You’ve got to get your hands on this novella and just in time for the holidays!

I had been looking forward to The Christmas Bride since reading the other three books in The Burnett Brides series. It was fun to see if Eugenia's daughters-in-law could help her find the kind of happiness she found for them. It is an entertaining, quick read, great for a relaxing evening.

Eugenia Burnett seems pretty happy.  She played matchmaker to her three sons and now they were happily married.  So now she has three daughters and three grandbabies and one on the way!  She has even played matchmaker for some local lonely ladies and widowers as well.  But what will happen when Wyatt Jones, rancher and widower, informs her that she is the only woman he is interested in.  Will she stick to her stubborn ways or will Wyatt win her over in the end?   I have been looking forward to this book ever since I found out there was going to be one!  I loved this series and I loved Eugenia!  And Wyatt….PHEW….he seems like one smoking rancher!  I adored this book! Sylvia has once again written an AMAZING book!  I highly recommend it to all!
