Four brides plus four grooms equal A Christmas To Remember, a collection of four charming romances sure to warm even the coldest day.
I Will by Lisa Kleypas
Andrew, Lord Drake needs a favor and he knows exactly who he will ask that favor of: Caroline Hargreaves, his friend Cade’s unwed older sister. Caroline’s having nothing of it, but Andrew’s powers of persuasion are quite strong. Caroline has known Andrew for years and has a less than favorable opinion of the arrogant Lord, but when Andrew presents a bargain that she just can’t afford to decline, Caroline’s willing to help out. Temporarily, of course.
Deck the Halls With Love by Lorraine Heath
Alistair Wakefield has been left at the altar once, but he’s not going to let the true love of his life slip away. Lady Meredith Hargreaves may well be engaged to Lord Litton, but engagements are meant to be broken, aren’t they?
No Groom at the Inn by Megan Frampton
Lady Sophronia Bettesford is on her way to her last resort – a cousin’s home where she will be in charge of six children and an unnumbered flock of chickens. It’s the last resort for an impoverished earl’s daughter, but Sophronia would much rather spend her days in a cottage in the country. That is until she meets James Archer, who has already told his mother he’s bringing a fiancée home for the holidays. Sophronia and James recognize the loneliness in one another, and it’s easy to see the solution to that problem. Easy for everyone but Sophronia, that is.
The Duke’s Christmas Wish by Vivienne Lorret
Ivy Sutherland is twenty-five and firmly on the shelf and off the marriage market, but that doesn’t mean she won’t help her dearest friend Lilah find true love. A weeks-long house party at the estate of the Duke of Vale – known to his friends as North – should help Ivy find just the right match for her pal. North is working on an invention, a system of equations and formulas to take the randomness out of matchmaking by determining suitability by scientific evaluation. But even the best experiments have failures – or successes, depending on how you look at it. And North definitely looks on this glitch in his algorithm with favor…and love!
Each of the stories in this collection is appealing on its own merit, and the collection also flows quite nicely together; even though there is not a common cast of characters, the holiday theme adds a delightful setting to each story. Holiday anthologies are a romance reader’s antidote to this busy season, and this collection does not disappoint. Merry Christmas!
