I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
Enchanted at Christmas is a set of three novellas that take place in the same setting and with related characters. Each story can be read individually. These novellas were well-written and entertaining. A Love For Lady Winter by Christy Carlyle - Lady Winifred has a secret - she sees ghosts. She knows she will never find acceptance in society. She travels to Castle Keyvnor, where she meets her aunt's godson, Septimus Locke, the Earl of Carwarren. They are attracted to each other, but Septimus is scientific and rational. Can they find a way to accept each other? His Christmas Angel by Jerrica Knight-Catania - Miss Angel Quinn has grown up outside of society, but then she is invited to meet her cousins at a house party at Castle Keyvnor. Ethan Dallimore, Duke of Westbury arrives at Castle Keyvnor with a headache that won't go away. He meets Angel and immediately wants to get to know her better. This was a fun, sweet story. Lady Rose & Lord Snow by Claudia Dain - Charles Snowingham, the Earl of Grimstone, wears a ring that terrifies the ghosts at Castle Keyvnor when he arrives. Lady Rose Hambly is determined to find a spouse and leave Castle Keyvnor behind - along with a certain ghost who won't leave her alone. This was a great story that made me smile and laugh frequently. I enjoyed all three of these novellas. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
