A SPRINKLING OF CHRISTMAS MAGIC
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Three lovely stories set around the holiday season are short and sweet, focusing on the magic that emanates from the spirit of the season and not enchantment itself. With everything from old friends to intrigue and danger, this trio of tales is just what readers want during this hectic time of year.
Rolls’ practical heroine, Polly, doesn’t believe in fairy tales, but this schoolmistress becomes a “Christmas Cinderella” when Alex Martindale, rector of a small village, hires her for their school. Alex can’t resist Polly, and he hopes a bit of mistletoe magic will have her in his arms.
Catherine Emerson looks forward to “Finding Forever at Christmas” at a yuletide ball in Scott’s story. Catherine secretly hopes to share a kiss with her friend’s golden-haired, gorgeous brother, Channing Deverill, but it is the quiet, intelligent Finn Deverill whose kiss fuels a heated desire.
McPhee’s Sarah Emerson is returning to England for Christmas when she aids in the rescue of a man adrift in the ocean and becomes “The Captain’s Christmas Angel.” Daniel Alexander is hiding the reason he was out in the Atlantic and dares to trust Sarah with his heart and his life. Sarah is sure he’s the man of her dreams, but only a holiday miracle can make her wish come true. (HARLEQUIN, Nov., 288 pp., $6.50)
