When Edwina�s father invites ten titled lords to spend Christmas at his medieval estate so Edwina may choose one for a husband, she finds the idea romantic. She dreams of gazing into the eyes of one of her suitors and falling deeply in love. But it soon becomes apparent the lords in question are far more interested in gaining her father�s estate than Edwina�s hand.
Thorstan�s in attendance, but he hasn�t been invited, and he�s no lord. A former mercenary, he�s come disguised as a jester to get near Edwina, long adored from afar. Edwina quickly falls for his charm and quirky humor even though she fears her father will never approve of a commoner for her husband. But when Edwina is abducted, only Thorstan�a skilled swordsman�has hope of rescuing her in time for the promised Christmas wedding.

I really had fun with The Tenth Suitor and found Edwina a fun character and relatable (and with the jester character, who was clever, and cute, and a really good sport!) and the Christmas elements (and I know I’ll be a dissenting voice here) not as heavy-handed as you might find in other “Christmas romances”, and I count that refreshing in a holiday book. Does she get her happy ending? You’ll have to read to find out! I think you’ll enjoy it.
Completely romantic historical! Plenty of conflict, perfectly paced. Strong, loveable heroine - Edwina. Strong, determined, noble hero - Thorstan. Enjoyed the 10 suitors - 10 lords a-leaping Christmas theme.
