Linked by the winter holidays and an abundance of greenery, these novellas by four best-selling historical authors bring Christmastime in 19th-century England to shimmering life and are perfect treats for the holiday rush. An accidental kiss under the mistletoe binds a strong-minded, unlikely pair in Jeffries's spirited romp "The Heiress and the Hothead"; a mistletoe kiss at a masquerade ball and a snowstorm reunite a pair of former sweethearts in Karen Hawkins's "Twelve Kisses to Midnight"; a young lady on a clandestine mission struggles to keep her identity secret from a persistent, attractive gentleman in Candace Camp's clever "By Any Other Name"; and a house party and search for a mysterious letter link a young woman with the man who unwittingly ruined her reputation in Meredith Duran's engaging "Sweetest Regret."
VERDICT This diverse assortment of seasonal tales is just the thing for busy fans who want their historicals short, sweet, and laced with Christmas cheer.
