A snowstorm can provide the perfect setting for romance, as evidenced in this trio of stunning Regency novellas. In Hunter’s “A Christmas Abduction,” Caroline Dunham is determined to make Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill, pay for his past misdeeds, yet her half-baked plans suddenly go awry when she comes face to face with the notorious rake. In Sabrina Jeffries’s “A Perfect Match,” heiress Cassandra Isles is set on marrying for love and steering clear of fortune hunters. But trapped in close quarters with the alluring Col. Lord Heywood Wolfe, who is looking for funds to repair his estate, Cassandra finds her feelings quickly changing. Finally, Mary Jo Putney’s “One Wicked Winter Night” sees Lady Diana Lawrence return to England, where she discovers that the man with whom she shares a memorable dance at the costume ball is her former paramour, Anthony Raines, Duke of Castleton. Stranded together in the duke’s lodge during a blizzard, the two attempt to resolve past hurts and begin the slow process of starting anew.
VERDICT These steamy short stories from three masters of the genre are perfect to recommend to readers even beyond the holiday season.
