"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Traveling with an infant as a single lady is a bit tougher than Merry expected but she makes her way to Alex’s door and informs him of needing to find his cousin, William. As the head of his family Alex takes the matter very seriously and is determined to help Merry in her quest to reunite father and daughter but he also wouldn’t mind reuniting himself with Merry along the way. The two travel to Wrotham Castle where the family is gathered for Christmas and find themselves stranded by a snowstorm giving them time to rekindle the flame that once was between them.
With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins is a historical romance novella that of course takes place during the Christmas season. While this book is a relatively short read the author did pack a ton into the pages. It helped that the couple in question in the story had a background between them too so it didn’t feel as if it was a case of insta-love with having such a short space to establish a relationship.
Along with the idea of bringing a former couple back together the story had plenty of other content to the point that I wondered if it wasn’t bordering on maybe a tad too much for the length and could have benefited from being a bit longer. But on the flip side it certainly kept it a bit more interesting to not just rush the romance and be done with the story so I didn’t take too much off my rating as I did enjoy this little holiday historical novella.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
While this is billed as a Lords of Anarchy novella, it has a nice little tie into the Study in Scandals series as well.
Merry Parks was betrothed to Alex, Viscount Wrotham five years ago, but for seemingly no reason, she broke off their engagement and left Alex with no explanation.
Fast forward Five years, Merry's dearest friend Charlotte has passed away from a childbed fever, but she has made Merry promised to find the baby's father. The baby's father happens to be Alex's cousin. Willing to do whatever she must to find the father, she goes to see Alex.
Alex has never gotten over Merry and still doesn't understand why she left him. When they meet again he realizes that he still loves her and will use this opportunity to woo her again.
He invites her to his family's Christmas gathering, telling her the baby's father will be there, she reluctantly agrees to go. She thought she put her feelings for Alex in the past, but seeing him again, makes her realize that she still has strong feeling for him and she is not sure she can walk away again.
What follows is a well written, nicely paced, very sweet story of lost love found, secrets revealed, jealous harpies reeking havoc, a bit of steam and a very lovely HEA.
I would be happy to recommend this book, which is part of the LOA series, but could easily be read as a stand alone title.
