New Release+Review: Once Upon A Christmas Eve by Elizabeth Hoyt




A heartwarming stand-alone novella from New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt!

Adam Rutledge, Viscount d'Arque, 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 brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they're forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he's ever met . . .

Sarah St. John really rather loathes rakes. The self-satisfied smirks. The sly predatory gazes. Oh, and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning. But in the spirit of the season, she'll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home. But as the snowstorm rages, the Yule log crackles, and the tension rises, Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery, passionate kiss. If love is the true meaning of Christmas, it's the one gift this mismatched pair can't wait to unwrap.



Once Upon a Christmas Eve (Maiden Lane # 12.6)
by Elizabeth Hoyt


When Adam Rutledge, Viscount D’Arque and his grandmother have their carriage break in the middle of a snow storm, he has no option but to seek refuge at the nearest location.

Sarah St. John knows D’Arque and his reputation and doesn’t need him around her or his sisters, but given their dire situation and his grandmother’s frail health, she’ll play the gracious hostess and will end up getting to know the Viscount on a completely different level.

I liked this short Christmas romance.  There’s enough of the characters background story to understand the reasons why he doesn’t like Christmas and she despises rakes, the family and house party guests make for a nice interaction along the story and though Sarah’s sarcasm is not a match for Adam and his machinations, it makes for good banter and, at the end of the day, these characters will be the perfect complement for one another.
