SAINTS AND SINNERS by Josi S. Kilpack. When Neville Franklin’s best friend Burke wants to wager who can kiss Eloise first, Neville puts a stop to it. Eloise has been his friend since childhood, and, well, she’s off-limits. Especially to Burke. As Burke pursues Eloise and claims that she has a tendre for him, Neville becomes more and more protective of the girl he grew up with. On the night of the Christmas ball when Eloise appears in a dress that clearly shows that she is no longer a girl, but a beautiful woman, Neville realizes that his protective feelings toward Eloise have turned into something greater. But now, Neville’s best friend stands in his way.
THE CHRISTMAS ANGLE by Carla Kelly. Sailing Master Able Six is on half-pay with the British navy, biding his time during the uneasy Peace of Amiens and the resumption of war. Meanwhile, he’s invited to teach young pupils at the home of a vicar outside of Plymouth. There, he unexpectedly meets Meridee, the spinster sister-in-law of the vicar. From the moment Able sees Meridee, he’s entranced. When she asks him about his past and discovers his remarkable yet troublesome gift, he realizes he’s finally found someone who can care for all of him. Sadly, Able’s low station and half-pay gives him no way to provide for a wife. Meridee’s lack of dowry and dependence on relatives makes their union impossible at best. But isn’t Christmas a season of hope?
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS by Jennifer Moore. Archie Clawson wants nothing more than to give Jane the perfect Christmas. Since her troubled childhood, she’s not experienced a Christmas with all the trimmings. To top off the perfection, he also plans to ask her to marry him on Christmas Eve. But as he and his friends, including Jane, travel to his country home, they are caught in a snowstorm and discover that notice of their arrival did not get through to the house staff. Worried over the disappointment he must be causing Jane and the complete shift in their planned Christmas, Archie fears that he’s misinterpreted her kindness towards him and lost her favor forever.

Saints and Sinners by: Josi Kilpack
I have been a big fan of Josi Kilpack for a few years now! Ever since I picked up Lemon Tart, I was hooked! I'm not usually a huge fan of regency romance but this novella really pulled me in and I sat and read the whole thing. Eloise and Neville are childhood friends that as they got older their relationship turns into something more. Neville just doesn't seem to realize it yet. Eloise wants to be noticed by him even if that means spending time with his best friend....I loved all the references to Christmas time in England. My Mom is British so I grew up with some of those traditions and heard many stories of the others! Great job Josi!
The Christmas Angle by Carla Kelly
I had a rough time getting into this book. I'm not a huge fan of historical romance but I read them on occasion. I almost gave up around chapter 3 or so but decided to push a little more. In the end I enjoyed it. It was very different from what I usually read but I liked it and I liked Able and Meridees story. I also love that she called Meridee his keeper. Don't we all feel like our husbands keeper sometimes haha ;)
The Perfect Christmas by Jennifer Moore
This novella was my favorite of the set! I am a firm believer of simple Christmases and have always tried to keep them that way. I have dreamed of having Christmas in cabin in the snow somewhere. This story proves that not everything needs to go as planned to be perfect in its own way and even the most simple of Christmases can turn out to be the best ones! Perfect story to start out an upcoming holiday season!
All in all this was another awesome set of books to read for the Christmas season!
Note: I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
