The Holly and the Ivy by Sarah M. Eden

Hiding Christmas by Esther Hatch
Celebrating Christmas in Scotland will only invite persecution. But that never stopped Kirstine’s English grandmother. When they are almost caught, Kirstine is forced to beg for the help of the one man she cannot abide.
A Twist of Christmas by Dana LeCheminant
A Christmas house party offers two members of the ton an irresistible opportunity: a weekend of anonymity. But their charade comes with unexpected romantic consequences.
A Season to Love by Anneka R. Walker
Alice Hunt is searching for a Christmas miracle: a husband of her choosing. With the threat of an arranged marriage looming, she looks to an unlikely matchmaker for help.
I’ve read and loved so many of these Christmas collections. This one might be my very favorite of them so far. I loved each and every one of the stories.
The Holly and the Ivy by Sarah M Eden is the first story in the book. I loved this one! It was really great to see Adam, the Duke of Kielder as a child. He’s one of my all time favorite characters. It really helps to understand him. I loved his nurse, Robbie. She’s such a sweetheart. And one of the few people to care about him. This one had Christmas magic, even though it’s not set during Christmas time.
Next is Hiding Christmas by Esther Hatch. This one made me laugh! I loved her characters so much. Kirstine has such a strong personality. And the way she hated Isaac without knowing him was comical. So when she had to ask him for help to get the Christmas bread to England by pretending they were married. Oh so good!
Then we have A Twist of Christmas by Dana LeCheminant. I loved this one too! We have two brothers. One a duke, one a mister. They switch places when going to a house party. But little do they know that a Lady and her companion would do the same. I didn’t want this one to end!
Last up is A Season to Love by Anneka R. Walker. I was dying reading the first chapter. Alice prays in the church and she gets a response! But it was not quite what she expected. I loved the way her heart opened as the story goes along.
I wish each and every one of these were full length novels. You’ve got to read them!
I was sent an e-copy of The Holly and the Ivy as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
