A Rogue’s Christmas Kiss by Eva Devon
Bard Productions Inc (November 12, 2017)
Bah and a hum bug Sebatian Rutherford, the new Earl of Gray, has no desire to settle down. Ever. The only thing he dislikes more than the idea of taking over his recently inherited earldom, and all its responsibilities, is Christmas. So, when he agrees to an arranged marriage to the former earl’s daughter, he plans on a quick wedding and a quicker return to his adventures abroad. Surely, even a hint of Christmas cheer won’t need to be shared? But when his clever new wife, Lady Marabelle begins to thaw his heart, he finds that not only is family a joy, but Christmas may be the best season to lose one’s heart. Deck the Halls: Lady Marabelle loves Christmas. She loves everything about it. So, when she faces her first Christmas since the death of her beloved father, married to a man she’s never met, she decides to make sure that the Christmas hating new Earl must be taught the spirit of the season. But with each day toward Christmas that comes her way, she begins to find that perhaps a marriage of convenience can be a marriage of the heart and a veritable Christmas miracle. This was originally included in the Limited Christmas Set ‘Twas the Night Before Scandal.
Love and patience turns Sebatian, the “Grinch”, into a loving husband. Marabelle teaches him how to love and be loved. She also teaches Sebatian the meaning and joy of Christmas. I really liked the main character Marabelle. She has a sense of humor, she’s forthright, yet an innocent. A nice, quick holiday read.
