‘Twas the Night After Christmas

The holidays are approaching and I have to admit that I love this time of year. I love the feel of it, the look of it and even the smell of it.
So, when I found out that one of my favorite authors, Sabrina Jeffries, has a book coming out on Oct. 30th and it’s a Christmas Regency romance I was so thrilled! It’s like an early gift!
Sabrina Jeffries’ books are always quaint, quirky, fun, sweet, hot and romantic! Yes, all of that!
This story is about the Earl of Devonmont, Pierce Waverly, who is a scoundrel whose parents abandoned him to school and then relatives. He grows up quite the scoundrel, but you feel such pity for him. He loved him mother so dearly, but she never tried to contact him once he was sent away. It really scarred him.
So, when he receives a message saying she is on her death bed and he must come quickly he drops everything to see his mother one last time.
Upon arriving he finds that his mother’s hired companion, a lovely widow, has exaggerated her condition greatly. The well-meaning woman is trying to make peace, but Pierce is bitter about his past.
The widow, Camilla Stuart is as strong willed as she is well-meaning. But the price the Earl would have to give in to her request may be too much.
The story is about redemption, forgiveness and love. It’s a perfect Christmas story and I highly recommend it as a gift! But, you read it first! It’s a keeper! And it’s every bit as magical as mistletoe!
