A Regency Christmas Treasury
Celebrate a Romantic Regency Christmas!
This special digital box set includes one Regency Christmas novella and two full length novels:
Her Mistletoe Kiss - This year's festivities for Christabel and her young son will be cold and harsh - or so she thinks. When the man she loved and lost returns, offering her warmth, comfort and a true family Christmas, she can't resist!
Scandal Takes a Holday - Romance is in the air when a matchmaking countess invites three eligible heiresses and three cash-strapped noblemen for Christmas. But when wallflower Lily Crawford impersonates her vivacious twin sister, things could turn positively scandalous!
Snowbound with the Baronet - The last person Sir Brandon expects to meet on the snowy road to Bath is the lady who once rejected his marriage proposal. But when a winter storm forces them to take shelter together, warm affections are soon rekindled. Can the flame of true love burn brightly enough to light the way for two lost hearts to find one another again?
The set also includes bonus content of special holiday excerpts from three of my other novels!
Scandal is afoot when a match-making countess invites three eligible heiresses and three cash-strapped noblemen to her holiday house party! Shy, sensible Lily Crawford fears her vivacious twin sister will wed a fortune-hunting aristocrat, who might bankrupt their late fatherís business and leave them penniless. She urges Iris to consider her devoted admirer Captain Aaron Turner. The captain is reliable, resourceful and ruggedly handsome, but Iris has her heart set on being a titled lady, not the wife of disreputable privateer.
Having made his fortune on the high seas, Aaron Turner is ready to settle down and gain social acceptance by winning the beautiful, sought-after Iris Crawford. He begs her sister to help him woo the reluctant heiress. When Iris falls ill, Lily takes her sisterís place but soon finds herself falling in love with the dashing captain who is determined to marry her sister. If her masquerade is uncovered, the scandal could ruin three futures and break more than one heart. Can Lily find the courage to step out of her sisterís shadow to claim the man of her dreams?
