The Heart of Christmas by Anita Stansfield

'Tis the Season to Be Daring by Esther Hatch
Elizabeth Davenport has had quite enough of the London Season. Determined to evade a parade of unsuitable suitors, she seeks help from the one gentleman who has no regard for Society's rules. All of Society knows Lord Hawthorne is not interested in marriage, yet he cannot deny Miss Davenport's unique charm. And as the Christmas season works its magic, their charade begins to feel less like playacting and more like love.
The Christmas Dress by Joanna Barker
Seamstress Nell Addington is thrilled when her childhood friend Jacob Hammond commissions a dress for his sister. But when Nell realizes her feelings for Jacob run far deeper than friendship, an unexpected snowstorm—and some holiday cheer—may convince them both that love is worth fighting for.
My thoughts: This book is such a fun collection of Regency era novellas! I love the variety that they present, from a mother trying to make amends with her son and his family and finding love along the way, to a delightfully unconventional heroine who takes matters into her own hands when she cooks up a scheme to get out of attending the Season. All of the stories were delightful, and I enjoyed each of the characters! I have to admit to a particular fondness for Elizabeth and her unconventional beau. Each of the stories were lovely, but they stole the show for me!
This is a get set of stories to pick up for the holidays (though it could be read any time of the year)!
