It is extremely difficult to write a satisfying novella. Some authors are able to "capture the magic" with 50,000 words or less, and some aren't. Marlowe totally nails it. This story has all the things I love about her longer historicals...it's beautifully written, has lusty love scenes, wonderful humor, and a very satisfying ending.
The best thing about this story is all of the unexpected surprises. Giovanni, the impassioned artist, is not who he seems. Sybil, the spoiled daughter, is not as shallow as we think. Ian, the head groom, is more clever, determined and madly in love than we could imagine. Marlowe weaves a multitude of threads together in this story, and as the threads come together, you know that you're in for a wonderful surprise. I LOVE stories that weave together a bunch of different POVs. Usually, you can figure out what's about to happen far in advance. But Mia Marlowe really surprised me at the end with all of the revelations about the characters. I adored the final scene in the library, written with all of the wit and humor that is characteristic of this author. It borders on a historical farce, which is one of my favorite things!
This story is truly like an unexpected Christmas gift...I opened the package having no expectations, and I found a real treasure. Thank you, Mia, for this sweet Christmas story.

If you read this & don't like it, don't give up on the author without trying "How to Please A Pirate". It has a much better story. Love scenes are more detailed, so make sure you're OK with that.
The main characters you need to keep tract of during the story are:
Jane Tate: Half-sister of Lady Sybil; bastard child of Lord Somerville; scullery maid
Ian Michael MacGarrett: Head groom; loves Jane
Lady Sybil Somerville: Daughter of Lord Somerville; has no desire to marry Viscount Eddleton; loves the artist
Viscount Eddleton: Ick; Weasel
Giovanni Brunello: artist; loves Sybil
So, if you can keep tract of these characters, you should be fine. Yes, it is a bit far-fetch. However, if you have seen A Midsummer Night's Dream or Much Ado About Nothing then the story isn't so far-fetch. If you are looking for a Shakespeare-like comedy, you might want to checkout My Lady Below Stairs.
I absolutley adored Ian, WHAT a fantastic sexy hero! Jane was great as well as the many secondary charachter's that kept me LOL and waiting to see what they were going to do next. Great read!

I found this one moved a little fast with the story line and could have used a little more development but still a good light read on a sunny day.Published on March 2, 2013 by S. Lejeune

The story is set in the Regency Era, just before Christmas. Jane Tate is not simply a scullery maid at Somerville Manor. She is also the by-blow of Lord Somerville. Read morePublished on January 2, 2012 by Detra Fitch
This story is neither really good nor bad, but that I assume is the way with short X-mas stories. Of course this story has a rather irrealistic fairytale ending but for an X-mas... Read morePublished on January 1, 2012 by Amazon Customer
