to the countryside His grandmother however loves the holiday and Adam loves his grandmother so he ll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her But when their carriage wheel snaps they re forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening infuriating and utterly beguiling woman he s ever metSarah St John really rather loathes rakes The self satisfied smirks The sly predatory gazes Oh and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning But in the spirit of the season she ll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home But as the snowstorm rages the Yule log crackles and the tension rises Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery passionate kiss If love is the true meaning of Christmas it s the one gift this mismatched pair can t wait to unwrapWhat I LikedThis novella was so cute I adore the Maiden Lane series and I love the holidays so this story fit my mood perfectly I tried to leave this one until closer to the publication date but I was just too excited about a holiday romance This is also the last story of the Maiden Lane which is eual parts exciting and heartbreaking Mostly heartbreaking But it s a great add on to the end of the series and I m left with a feeling of contentmentThis novella tells the short love story of Sarah St John and Viscount d Arue Sarah is the younger stepsister of Godric St John the male protagonist of book five Lord of Darkness She is spending the holidays with her mother younger sisters stepbrother sister in law and several other guests An unexpected guest arrives due to a broken down carriage and it s someone that Sarah despises Adam Rutledge is handsome charming rich titled and seemingly perfect and a notorious rake Sarah wants nothing to do with rakes after an embarrassing happenstance nearly ruined her reputation But for the few days that Adam stays with the St John family because of the broken carriage the snowstorm and Adam s grandmother s health Sarah begins to realize that Adam is not the careless rake she thought he was And Adam begins to realize that he wants Sarah and not just because she is so good at acting like she hates him The holidays are a perfect time for stolen kisses and warm embraces and blooming love stories As our protagonists find outAdam was introduced early in the series at least in book five for sure possibly earlier but I can t remember He flirted with Megs Godric s wife in book five and Godric hasn t really liked him since Sarah St John has never liked him But Adam is very much a misjudged man He is definitely a rake but he s actually a sweet guy underneath his playful wicked facade He is a good man despite his reputation Sarah seems innocent and sweet and boring just how she wants it Years ago she experienced an untoward encounter with a gentleman that could have led to ruin Years later she has continued to shut down courtships and turn away gentlemen because she doesn t want her reputation to be damaged Something about Adam makes her blood heat and not in a bad way Sarah may act prim and proper but she loves Adam s wickednessHate to love romances are my favorite and this romance was a wonderful example of the trope The animosity is obvious but there is simmering beneath the surface Adam and Sarah clash over and over and there is plenty of banter and wit in this story I loved seeing them fall for each other It was sweet and passionate with just enough chemistryI love holiday stories This novella is very much centered around Christmas with everyone having gathered at Hedge House for Christmas There is something joyful and romantic about the Christmas season and it shines in this book I am loving this year s holiday romances this novella included of courseThis story was short it s a novella but it is very lovely If you re looking for something short and sweet and swoony try this novella Usually I don t bother with them but this story was adorable Plus there are plenty of GodricMegs cameos And of course the novella ends beautifully I love Adam and Sarah together and I m so glad Hoyt wrote this novellaWhat I Did Not LikeNothing to complain about This novella was uite wonderfulWould I Recommend ItI definitely recommend this novella to anyone who has read any of the Maiden Lane books Like I said usually I don t bother with novellas because they re such a tease and way too short But this novella was very complete and didn t feel too short or rushed The romance was written so well and I loved the characters It was a refreshing sweet fun story to read and perfect for the holidaysAnd for those that have not read any of the Maiden Lane books of course I highly recommend the series and starting from the beginning at that But the novellas are also a great way to get into the series Short and sweet and completely uniuely Elizabeth Hoyt I personally think no one writes historical romance uite like Hoyt She has her own style and level and while I love many HR writers and their books I think Hoyt is one of the bestRating4 stars I m really sad about this series ending Duke of Desire is the last full length novel and the novellas that have been published this year are among the last short additions I am so hoping for a MaximusArtemis novella or epilogue or something Duke of Midnight was my favorite Sunshine and Shadows the fiercest snowstorm The Palace of Dreams to please her But when Two Wings

Once Upon a Christmas Eve

Eaning But in the spirit of the season she'll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home But as the snowstorm rages the Yule log crackles and the tension rises Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery passionate kiss If love is the true meaning of Christmas it's the one gift this mismatched pair can't wait to unwrap. I don t know why other readers rated this one lower than the other novella I just finished This is exactly what I would like to read in a shorter book all of it focused on the two main characters with little distractionAnd EH delivers I have always liked heroes that are a little bad but really good deep down inside This is what we get in D Arue Adam I also happen to love the name Adam my crush in 4th grade don t you know P A very solid manly name at odds with his rakish reputation PerfectI like a heroine who distrusts beauty and flirtatiousness Dare I say it reminds me of myself And Sarah is just that But there s chemistry that s undeniable and sometimes a spark is all it takes then the courage to blow it into a full blown fireWell done Ms Hoyt
