Determined to evade a parade of unsuitable suitors, she seeks help from the one gentleman who has no regard for Society’s rules. All of Society knows Lord Hawthorne is not interested in marriage, yet he cannot deny Miss Davenport’s unique charm. And as the Christmas season works its magic, their charade begins to feel less like playacting and more like love.
The Christmas Dress by Joanna Barker – Seamstress Nell Addington is thrilled when her childhood friend Jacob Hammond commissions a dress for his sister.

What do you do when four of your favorite Regency romance authors release a Christmas book in September? You have Christmas in September…obviously! I loved everything about this book, the novellas in it are so great! They put me in the mood for Christmas. Now if only the weather would cool down!
First up is Christmas at Falstone Castle by Sarah M Eden. Yay for Adam, The Dangerous Duke aka The Duke of Kielder. He is my favorite Sarah Eden character hands down. I love the way he says whatever pops into his head. But he obviously has a soft side too. And no, he’s not the main character, but he’s in the book a lot. His mother Harriet is the main character.
I love how this one shows a lot of Adam’s backstory, it shows the reader why he is how he is. But it also shows that there’s always a second chance for love. I loved everything about it!
Next up is The Heart of Christmas by Anita Stansfield. I enjoyed this one too. It features Addie. She’s a seamstress. One day a man comes in out of the cold and offers her a one of a kind job. She takes it, and I loved the way not only does her life change for the better, but those she cares for in her new job as well. I loved the way hearts change because of love and Christmas becomes new in this one.
‘Tis the Season to be Daring by Esther Hatch is next. I loved Elizabeth in this one. She made me laugh out loud several times. It was fun how she wanted to be just scandalous enough to miss the rest of the season, but not completely ruin her reputation. This one left me wanting more!
Last up is Joanna Barker’s The Christmas Dress. I loved Nell in this one. She’s a seamstress, but she always seems to be in a bit of trouble. Especially at the worst of times, like when Jacob Hammond is watching her. Nell and Jacob have known each other for years, but lost touch. I loved everything about their sweet love story.
Each of these novellas is enchanting. This book will leave you ready for Christmas!
I was sent a copy of All Hearts Come Home for Christmas as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
