This is a collection of five short stories which are Christmas themed and set in the Regency period. These stories are something a bit out of the ordinary. Romance readers are familiar with the scenario of young eligible and beautiful girls attending the London season and finding a husband after a few trials and tribulations. These five heroines are older and more experienced and some are widows after short and unsatisfactory marriages.
My particular favourite was `To Undo a Lady' - a runaway member of high society takes to prostitution and the stage. I also enjoyed `His Wicked Christmas Wager' about righting old wrongs. All five stories were enjoyable and entertaining reading and kept me occupied for a couple of afternoons. Of course everyone knows the outcome but it is the process by which the hero and heroine reach their happy ending which gives the entertainment.
Overall this is a feel good read and an ideal book to curl up with over Christmas - preferably accompanies by a glass of wine and probably a mice pie or a box of chocolates.
