Yvette Hamilton knows just what she wants for Christmas–a dazzling marriage. And if marrying the ton’s catch at the height of the Yuletide season is how she can prove herself, she’ll be the most respectable of the many ladies competing for his hand. But one accomplished rake has other, much more tempting ideas. . .
The illegitimate son of a duke, Lord Jeffrey Eddington knows society will never truly respect him. He thought he’d found acceptance as a friend of the Hamiltons, but Yvette’s seeming snobbery makes him wager to win her hand no matter what it takes. Too late, he finds her frivolity conceals an intelligent, appealing woman. Now they face a hard choice between the holiday dreams they think they want most. . .and the very real love they can’t resist.
HIS BY CHRISTMAS by Kaitlin O’Riley is a wonderful Victorian Historical Romance set in 1878 London. A most delightful holiday read! Lord Jeffrey Eddington,is the illegitimate son of a Duke,and friend of the Hamiltons and Yvette Hamilton,who wants a dazzling marriage, find themselves in a race to make their holiday dreams come true. While, this is #5 in the “Hamilton Sisters”, it can be read as a stand alone. I had no trouble catching up with this series. I plan to read the others also. Yvette, is intelligent, sexy, but pretends to be frivolous. While, Lord Jeffrey knows he will never be accepted in society due to his illegitimacy, it still doesn’t stop him from his dreams. His father, the Duke of Eddington accepted him as his son year prior, you see he truly loved Jeffrey’s mother. With the festive season, dreams can come true. Fast paced and a very interesting read, it is filled with passion, decisions, and love. This is the final in the “Hamilton Sisters” series. For an added touch you will be surprised by Jeffrey’s father and mother at the end of the story. Ms. O’Riley brought all the characters together nicely and this is a delicious read for one and all. A truly festive read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
