Description from Amazon.com:
Christmas in town has never been so steamy . . .
Handsome as sin and scandalously rakish, Cam Westfall, the Earl of Bedwyr, is every young lady’s wickedest dream. Shy wallflower Princess Jacqueline of Sensaire knows this better than anyone, because her dreams are full of the breathtaking earl’s kisses. And not only her dreams—her diary, too.
But when Cam discovers the maiden’s not-so-maidenly diary, will her wildest Christmas wishes be fulfilled in its pages . . . or in his arms?
This is not a new Christmas novella but it is a well written, fun story with very much will-he-or-won’t-he realize who is his true love. Cam reads the diary and is driven to write a poem but when he and Jacqueline are distanced he can’t finish the poem. He realizes that with her diary she becomes his muse. This creates some humorous sneaking around to find the next hiding place of the diary. All the while when Cam is in her presence, he is falling in love.
I found this book to be just the right length at 176 pages. It was long enough to develop the characters which I often find missing in novellas that are shorter. Katharine Ashe is one of my favorite authors. She has never disappointed me. Each book she writes has a unique plot and characters as does this one.
This one is perfect for curling up with cocoa and letting all of that holiday stress just flow away.
