Not normally a fan of Christmas stories, however this book will have to go on my list of all-time favorites. From the first page until the very end I was pulled into the setting, the lives of the characters and the events as they were unfolding.
The story centers around Camille who decides to hire actors to play the role of her family in order to impress a foreign prince who wants to experience an English Christmas. When a man from Camille's past knocks on her door her plans are thrown into utter chaos and that is only the beginning.
The characters were wonderfully developed and I can't remember the last time I laughed so much while reading a book.
Fun and lighthearted this book is a must read!
Grayson Elliott left England the day after he told Camille how he felt about her. Even though Gray knew Camille didn't mean what she said, at that time, it hurt. So he left England to make his fortune. So now, eleven years later, he's back home. Of course, now he's obscenely rich, even if he doesn't have a title. In order to prove to his cousin that he no longer has any feelings for Camille, Grayson agrees to take a basket of baked goods to their neighbors at Milton Manor. Not surprisingly, when Grayson sees Camille, he realizes he still loves her and when finds out about her little Christmas charade, he inserts himself into the production as her cousin. This time, Grayson will not let Camille marry another man.
Will Camille's little Christmas production be a success?Read more ›
Camille, Lady Lydingham, is recently widowed and has her sights set on a new man, a prince to beat all! At the start of Camille's story we are placed right in the middle of a scheme that she has devised in order to have Prince Nikolai fall right into her arms. Are you ready for her scheme? This is the best part. Lady Lydingham has hired a stage of actors to fill in for her family this holiday season. Yes, you heard right. The entire Christmas season will be carried out with people who are not her real family. Except for her twin sister, Beryl, who claims that she would not miss this event for anything in the world. So this is where our fun begins. Prince Nikolai is very fond of Charles Dickens and has requested a Christmas that rivals the ones in Dickens' beloved novels. And this, my lovely readers, is exactly what Camille seeks to give him.
What Camille doesn't expect is a visit from someone from her past. Enter Grayson Elliot. Oh, the romance and tension that was filling the air when these two shared any room or conversation. I loved Alexander's writing when it came to romance, what passion and intrigue! I fell in love with their back story and each of them.Read more ›
