December Round Up

Monthly Mini Review

side view of a pretty blonde young white woman in a red regency style dress standing near a green velvet couch and smilingWhen She Was Naughty by Tessa Dare – A Tessa Dare sent a Christmas gift to her newsletter subscribers so I got this one for free but it’s only 99c from etailers. It’s about 50 pages and it’s such fun. It’s a Christmas bon bon of delight, a frothy funny confection which had me laughing out loud. Chloe Garland believes the Earl of Deverell, Justin Montague, does not like her and disapproves of her frivolity and enjoyment of life. She thinks he’s a stuffed shirt but he’s around her family all the time since his only relative, a beloved cousin married into the Garland clan. She convinces him the annual Garland Christmas Eve ball is one where all the men of the family wear “ugly Christmas waistcoats” in a nod to ugly Christmas sweaters.

Only Chloe is wrong about how the earl feels toward her and a frank discussion in the moonlight inspires her to rethink their past acquaintance.

I loved their banter. It’s a grumpy one with the sunshiney one kind of story but it’s also one where the hero is head over heels for his lady and once he starts telling her, he cannot stop.

It’s short and fun and delightful and definitely worth a dollar.
