When an author takes a character from a previous book, who is hateful and pretentious and then transforms her into a loveable heroine with such finesse, this is a story worth reading from an author who should be on your must read list. Such is the case with TO WED HIS CHRISTMAS LADY by Christi Caldwell. As the story begins, Lady Cara Falcot awaits at her finishing school for her father's carriage to retrieve her on the cusp of the Christmas holidays. But that carriage never comes and the lady who has already built a wall of ice around her heart, continues on. Lady Cara's father once again has put yet another ache in her already tender heart.When she takes a carriage borrowed from another family, she ends up in a snow storm, stranded at an inn with people she would normally never consort with. William Hargrove, the Marquess of Grafton has spent the last eight years shirking his familial duty. Betrothed to a woman he holds in dislike has him escaping England to live before he is tied down in an unhappy marriage. His sojourn is up and upon his return to England, Will winds up caught in the snowstorm and seeking refuge at an inn. William is already present when a difficult young lady comes to the inn an causes upheaval immediately. Will finds the lady to be a nuisance, but of course there is always a story behind the facade. Neither William nor Cara realize that they are betrothed to one another, each keeping their identities to themselves. During their stay at the inn, the pair aggravate one another while they become acquainted with one another and the realization that underneath the cool exteriors they present, is a person worth knowing. But William knows he has a bride waiting for him and Cara's fiance awaits her as well, so there is little or no future for the couple who soon find themselves with deep feelings for one another. William helps open Cara's heart that has been hidden by years of disappointment but will opening that heart only lead to it breaking when she loses Will? I have to tell you that Lady Cara was truly a despicable character in Christi Caldwell's TO LOVE A LORD. The challenge of taking that despicable character and making the reader actually come to like her is one this author achieved with this wonderfully told story. There is definitely a lesson to be learned. Sometimes the facade presented hides the truth and with a little care and understanding that facade melts away leaving a wonder to be beheld. Such is the tale of William and Cara.

So you know as soon as I saw that Christi Caldwell was releasing another book, I am all over that in a heartbeat…especially when it’s a Christmas Story. To make it even better the heroine in this book is called Cara!!! Lady Clarisse Falcot (but prefers to be called Cara) feels like the most hated women in the world! She is defiantly is the most hated girl in the finishing school her overbearing father has sent her too! But now it’s the Christmas Holidays and the school is closing for the break, but her Father the Duke of Ravenscourt has forgotten all about her and has failed to send a coach to collect her. So now the headmistress has asked a classmate who hates her to take her home. But after being made to feel uncomfortable, Lady Cara borrows the coach until she gets stuck in the snow storm and is forced to take shelter at an Inn. William Hargrove, the Marquess of Grafton has been summoned home to be married, after 10 years of being allowed to live free. But now he is back and is being forced to marry Lady Clarisse Falcot; who in his opinion is the most horrible, spoilt and cold women in all of England. But thankfully he has been given a small reprieve courtesy of a snow storm, now he is stuck at an Inn, with a beautiful but cold woman, called Lady Cara. Over these few days, both Will and Cara show their true-selves to each other, without letting them know who they truly are! But what will happen when the snow clears… I don't think I have related to a character, as much as I related to Lady Cara and not just because of the name. Cara's character brings up a lot of feelings from my younger years (except the whole Duke/lady thing) and at one point I had to put the book down and cry buckets, because it moved me that much! But by the end of the story I can honestly say I love this book. So let's get to the nitty gritty of the book shall we! The writing, plot and characters are simply divine! The only thing I wish for is a guest appearance from these two in the future. With all that being said I give To Wed His Christmas Lady 10 out of 10!

I liked the book very much but I find it missing a lot at the end . Like this marriage the reunion with her father and he’s parents , the reunion with the sister and most important their life right after getting married . Disappointing at the end .

3.5* This is my first Christi Caldwell book and it won't be my last. I have to admit that at first I thought I was not going to like the book. It moved slow and I lost interest, but the more I read I got intrigued. Then of course when I should be in bed I got sucked headlong into it and could NOT put it down. I love a good Christmas romance they are usually light and cheerful stories. Will and Cara's story however had some lighter moments but at the heart of it was gut wrenching emotional story of a young girls loveless upbringing that turned her into what appeared as a unfeeling spiteful person. Will however saw below the surface to the real person. It was emotional to read as Cara began to become the person she'd buried so deep she never believed excited. Will is a very compassionate and insightful and honorable man. He saw the beautiful person Cara was and wanted more. Believe me when I say you will need tissues. A lot of tissues!

There has not been one book by Christi Caldwell that I have not loved. This books is no exception. When you originally meet Cara, you hope she has some redeeming character because it really isn't immediately visible. However, as the story unfolds you come to love both the hero & heroine. A wonderful story - read it!

This is a very good read with twists and turns that bring together two "strangers" with emotional baggage. Hard to put down. 150 pages

This is a nice Christmas novella and I enjoyed it very much. The hero, Will, is returning home after years of traveling to wed Lady Clarisse, the daughter of his mother's best friend. He remembers her as a difficult child and is not too happy about his parents pushing this marriage on him. He uses a snowstorm as a delay and stays at a nearby inn. Clarisse, who sometimes uses her mother's pet name Cara, is stuck at finishing school as her father, a Duke, forgot to send a carriage for her. She borrows a carriage from a schoolmate but the snow forces her to stay at the same inn as Will. She is not a likable heroine until you realize how miserable her childhood was. Neither of them know the real identity of the other and fall in love. I will not write plot spoilers. It is a novella worth reading and I recommend it.

To Wed His Christmas Lady by Christi Caldwell is a wonderful read. Will and Cara's story is entertaining. Ms Caldwell has delivered a well written book with characters that may not start off as lovable but by the end of the book you love them anyway. Along with the great characters, this book has drama and a bit of humor. To Wed His Christmas Lady is fairly short, perfect for those with limited time for reading. It is also a clean read, no sex scenes. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Christi Caldwell in the future. To Wed His Christmas Lady is book 7 in The Heart Of A Duke Series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

To Wed His Christmas Lady by Christi Caldwell To Love a Duke Series Book 7 William Hargrove, the Marquess of Grafton has been avoiding the inevitable for eight years now. He made a deal with his father...travel for eight years before marrying the harridan he was promised to. Eight years was not long enough. Clarisse Falcot built a wall of ice around her. She was the perfect daughter of duke. Haughty, prideful, and could cower anyone with one look. She was also friendless and even if she wouldn't admit it...lonely. Since her mother died, Clarisse, or Cara as she preferred, had not known love. And now she is once again ignored and forgotten by her father. As it ends up, it may have been the best thing that ever happened to her.
