Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Mistletoe Christmas: An Anthology by Eloisa James, Christi Caldwell, Janna MacGregor, Erica Ridley

From four beloved writers—Eloisa James, Christi Caldwell, Janna MacGregor, and Erica Ridley—come four original stories that tell a hilarious tale of a Christmas house party that serves up love and scandal in equal measure!

The Duke of Greystoke’s Christmas Revelry is famous throughout the British Isles for its plays, dancing, magical grotto… not to mention scandals leading to the marriage licenses he hands out like confetti.

But not everyone welcomes a visit from Cupid.

Lady Cressida, the duke’s daughter, is too busy managing the entertainments—and besides, her own father has called her dowdy. Her cousin, Lady Isabelle Wilkshire, is directing Cinderella and has no interest in marriage. Lady Caroline Whitmore is already (unhappily) married; the fact that she and her estranged husband have to pretend to be together just makes her dread the party all the more.  But not as much as Miss Louisa Harcourt, whose mother bluntly tells her that this is her last chance to escape the horrors of being an old maid.

A house party so large that mothers lose track of their charges leads to a delightful, seductive quartet of stories that you will savor for the Season!

My Review

This anthology contains four festive regency romances,
All feature couples who are reluctant to take their chances
Thank you to Avon and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this Anthology, here's my honest review:

Attending the Duke of Greystoke’s Christmas Revelry
Expecting fun, plays, dances and lots of guests to see.
None expected to find the one they'll love at all
But Cupid has other plans when he comes to call!

With a determined Duke who wants his legacy to be
The continuation of his Christmas Revelry
His daughter is the organiser extraordinaire
He plans to keep her doing this, it isn't fair.

Then there are two second chance romances
Will attending the Revelry rekindle their chances?
And last, but by no means least, there's a lady poet who
Has a manipulative, determined Mum with plans, too.

With nobility and commoners, self made men and poets, too
Along with secrets, possible scandals and things to do,
Each of the four authors have helped to create
A Christmas collection that to read is great!
