Once Upon a Christmas EveVery disappointed in this The leads here deserved something much They were compelling characters and were a itting pairing that had been anticipated since book 5 of the series This was a short novella and it was way too rushed and wholly unsatisfying Also the accompanying The Moretti Marriage fairy tale was annoying definitely my leastavorite The Dark Duke fairy tale of all her books This was a nice uickie but I ve waited so longor Viscount d Arue s story I just wish he d had his own A Measure Of Love (Kincaid Trilogy full length novel Ugh Much as I m aan of Elizabeth Hoyt s Maiden Lane series I m not a great Starting Over on Blackberry Lane (Life in Icicle Falls fan of novellas and after having read and been somewhat meh about Once Upon a Maiden Lane I was going to give this a miss But thean in me said you might as well you ve read all the others books in the series that is so I did read it and I should have stuck to my guns because Once Upon a Christmas Eve is rather a disappointmentVery The Soul Of A Thief few authors IMO really know how to get it right when it comes to novellas Courtney Milan is always the one that comes to mind who DOES get it right and most of those I read tend to be rushed and lacking in depth plus the current vogueor getting in at least one sex scene regardless of page count means there is even less time spent developing a relationship And that s the case hereWhat makes it worse however is that the hero Adam Rutledge Viscount d Arue popped up as one of those secondary characters who took on a life of his own in an earlier book in the series and many Claiming His Desert Princess (Hot Arabian Nights fans including me had hoped Ms Hoyt was planning to make him a hero in one of the later books in the series Sadly that didn t pan out and instead we ve got this woefully underdeveloped tale of a hardened rake whoalls in love in the blink of an eye with a young woman who intrigues him because she hates rakes and doesn t want anything to do with himSarah St John had a bad experience some years earlier when she was almost ravished by a handsome charmer who when they were caught in a compromising position blamed her and said she led him on Mortified Sarah has shunned society ever since and absolutely detests rakes When Viscount d Arue shows up on the doorstep of the St John s country home asking Secret Baby, Surprise Parents for help because his carriage has been damaged theamily extends their hospitality to both d Arue and his grandmother with whom he had been travelling Sarah is not at all pleased at the prospect of having a handsome charming Mystify (Mystyx, flirtatious rake in the house and determines to keep her distance D Arue is of course intrigued by pretty much the only woman he s ever met who has resisted him and decides he might as well spend the nextew days trading barbs with Sarah except it s he who ends up The New Baby feeling discombobulated as he realises that the lovely spitfire has somehow got under his skinThere s no uestion that Ms Hoyt knows how to write a sexy hero and d Arue certainly delivers on the sexy he s suave and smooth and completely contained until he s around Sarah and the cracks in hisa ade begin to show He obviously cares Wild Streak for his grandmother a great deal and his relationship with her is very well written and gives added depth and insight to his character But Sarah s disgrace is too obviously just a convenient plot device and a reasonor her to dislike d Arue on sight A well bred young woman s reputation was incredibly important it s true but there s not enough here about what Sarah went through to make her attitude believableI suppose my biggest beef is to do with wasted potential Ms Hoyt is of

A heartwarming stand alone novella Friend Foe from New York Times best selling author Elizabeth HoytAdam Rutledge Viscount d'Arue really rather loathes Christmas The banal cheerfulness The asinine party games And worst of all the obligatory trip to the countryside His grandmother however loves the holiday and Adam loves his grandmother so he'll br. Romance This is also the last story of the Maiden Lane which is eual parts exciting and heartbreaking Mostly heartbreaking But it s a great add on to the end of the series and I m left with aeeling of contentmentThis novella tells the short love story of Sarah St John and Viscount d Arue Sarah is the younger stepsister of Godric St John the male protagonist of book The Longevity Diet five Lord of Darkness She is spending the holidays with her mother younger sisters stepbrother sister in law and several other guests An unexpected guest arrives due to a broken down carriage and it s someone that Sarah despises Adam Rutledge is handsome charming rich titled and seemingly perfect and a notorious rake Sarah wants nothing to do with rakes after an embarrassing happenstance nearly ruined her reputation Butor the Grassroots Innovation few days that Adam stays with the St Johnamily because of the broken carriage the snowstorm and Adam s grandmother s health Sarah begins to realize that Adam is not the careless rake she thought he was And Adam begins to realize that he wants Sarah and not just because she is so good at acting like she hates him The holidays are a perfect time or stolen kisses and warm embraces and blooming love stories As our protagonists ind outAdam was introduced early in the series at least in book Architecture and Utopia fiveor sure possibly earlier but I can t remember He Perfect Cities flirted with Megs Godric s wife in bookive and Godric hasn t really liked him since Sarah St John has never liked him But Adam is very much a misjudged man He is definitely a rake but he s actually a sweet guy underneath his playful wicked Prometheus Wired facade He is a good man despite his reputation Sarah seems innocent and sweet and boring just how she wants it Years ago she experienced an untoward encounter with a gentleman that could have led to ruin Years later she has continued to shut down courtships and turn away gentlemen because she doesn t want her reputation to be damaged Something about Adam makes her blood heat and not in a bad way Sarah may act prim and proper but she loves Adam s wickednessHate to love romances are myavorite and this romance was a wonderful example of the trope The animosity is obvious but there is simmering beneath the surface Adam and Sarah clash over and over and there is plenty of banter and wit in this story I loved seeing them all or each other It was sweet and passionate with just enough chemistryI love holiday stories This novella is very much centered around Christmas with everyone having gathered at Hedge House Special Topics in Calamity Physics for Christmas There is something joyful and romantic about the Christmas season and it shines in this book I am loving this year s holiday romances this novella included of courseThis story was short it s a novella but it is very lovely If you re lookingor something short and sweet and swoony try this novella Usually I don t bother with them but this story was adorable Plus there are plenty of GodricMegs cameos And of course the novella ends beautifully I love Adam and Sarah together and I m so glad Hoyt wrote this novellaWhat I Did Not LikeNothing to complain about This novella was uite wonderfulWould I Recommend ItI definitely recommend this novella to anyone who #has read any of the maiden books #read of the Maiden Lane books I said usually I don t bother with novellas because they re such a tease and way too short But this novella was very complete and didn t Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks feel too short or rushed The romance was written so well and I loved the characters It was a refreshing sweetun story to read and perfect Scenes from a Revolution for the holidaysAndor those that have not read any of the Maiden Lane books of course I highly recommend the series and starting rom the beginning at that But the novellas are also a great way to get into the series Short and sweet and completely uniuely Elizabeth Hoyt I personally think no one writes historical romance uite like Hoyt She has her own style and level and while I love many HR writers and their books I think Hoyt is one of the bestRating4 stars I m really sad about this series ending Duke of Desire is the last ull length novel and the novellas that have been published this year are among the last short additions I am so hoping Microsoft Visual C for a MaximusArtemis novella or epilogue or something Duke of Midnight was myavorite 35 starsI received this book Soulprint forree in exchange Blah Blah Black Sheep for an honest review This does
