A Reader's Opinion
Charming Christmas short story!
I really loved All She Wants for Christmas, written by Amy Rose Bennett! This novella had me from the first page since I love stories set during the Regency era. In fact, it's one of my favorite periods. I wish it would have been longer! This author never disappoints me!
This short novella is charming, sweet and refreshing! It tells the story of Tessa Penrose, a bluestocking, and Jasper, the Earl of Arlington, a rake. Both are independent and very happy with their lives until they are caught in a compromising situation that will almost cause a scandal. It all started with a stolen kiss! To avoid a scandal, Jasper and Tessa are forced to marry, which didn't please either of them. More kisses and the magic of Christmas will suddenly appear! But, Tessa is hiding a secret. Can she trust her future husband? Until he reveals to her his own dark secret. Slowly but surely, their new partnership will evolve to a beautiful loving relationship. And they loved happily after!
I really love this short Regency romance which originally appeared in the Bluestocking Belles' Mistletoe collection.
