It Happened One Christmas
The mugger yelled again to bring her back from her ramblings and all of a sudden a big woman with long blonde hair tackled the mugger. She had to help the woman but they were rolling around on the ground and if she tried to help, it would just be her luck to get the woman. Suddenly, the mugger got up and ran down the street and Audrey went to help the woman up, but it was no woman, it was a blonde god! Ka'el Siridarnith saw the woman being attacked and he tried to help but the robber had gotten away but not before slashing his hand.
His time at the North Pole as Santa's list checker was almost up. Months ago, an earthling had stayed with his family and told such delightful stories of earth that he had to see for himself before he returned to his home world. He was in fact an elf but hid his ears. The woman was fine and insisted that he get help for his hand then invited him to her home so that she could attend his wounds.
Her home was strange to him but suited her and he wondered how he could convince her to let him stay as he was not ready to leave earth. And could a stolen kiss under the mistletoe get Lily to change her mind? I thoroughly enjoyed this enchanting short story that perfectly captures the magic and the spirit of the season.
Lady Cassandra Norton is on the run with her two stepdaughters from a dangerous enemy intent on destruction. Taking refuge in a cottage on the estate of Sir Josiah, Cassandra makes ends meet by making candles and trying to keep as low a profile as possible and not to draw any attention to herself or her two charges. But having been lying to her from the very first moment they met, Adam is scared of how Cassandra will react when she finds out the truth about his identity.
Will a Christmas miracle give Adam and Cassandra the happy ending which they so richly deserve? Or will their unexpected romance be thwarted by an evil foe with vengeance on his mind? A steamy, seductive and scintillating tale that will tug at your hearstrings and keep you on the edge of your seats, Wallflower, Widow…Wife! As always, Ann Lethbridge has written a compulsively readable story you will not be able to resist and I defy anyone not to fall in love with her dashing hero and courageous heroine.
Outstanding as ever, Wallflower, Widow…Wife! A fantastic collection of three superb short stories, It Happened One Christmas!

Jan 21, Gerrie rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm giving this book 4 stars because of the story by Carla Kelly.
It reminded me a little of her novel Marrying The Captain , but while Ms. Kelly used some of the same elements, the plot ended up being different enough that it was a unique story - and up to her usual high standards. And although it was a short story, it felt complete. I recommend the book for the Kelly story, Christmas Eve Proposal. Dec 30, victoria.

Love at first sight Dysfunctional families, and families that love each other very much. War and those who fight it. And those who love the ones that serve.

At second reading of this book - I could not read the second and third story - It was all about the Carla Kelly story - as always. Heartwarming Christmas reading I can't recall reading any of these authors previously. Christmas Eve Proposal is the story of a Royal Navy man on holiday leave and a Lord's illegitimate daughter who works as a waitress.
Good characters, enough conflict, perhaps not the ending you'd expect. The Viscount's Christmas Kiss: He is a second son who finds himself with the family title and is tryin Heartwarming Christmas reading I can't recall reading any of these authors previously. He is a second son who finds himself with the family title and is trying to make up for the selfish, high handed way his family, including his younger self, has treated others. He especially wants to apologize to Lily.
The wallflower portion of the title isn't really relevant to the story. Widower Adam spends his time managing his father's estates which he will someday inherit. Widow Cassie keeps bees for honey and beeswax candles to support herself and two step daughters. Cassie's past life is somewhat confusing, but that doesn't matter in the end. Nov 19, Shelley rated it really liked it Shelves: I picked this up because I'll read anything by Carla Kelly, but all stories were solid. Carla Kelly wrote about a sailing master during the Napoleonic Wars falling for the woman who rents him her spare room for Christmas, and it was sweet and charming.

I liked Georgie Lee's characters quite a lot - I sympathized with Lily and her fears after being scored by society after Greg's bad decision at a ball years earlier, and liked seeing her move past them.
Ann Lethbridge's story seemed to have some pacing issues - it wrapped up so very fast, but since fixing that would mean cutting some of the bath and hair scene, I can't really complain. I liked both of them a lot, especially how much Cassie loved her stepdaughters, and Adam's fears made sense. Good stuff, all around. Jan 15, Mary Craven rated it it was amazing.
Another lovely Christmas themed anthology. I had never read Carla Kelly before and found her "Dukeless Regencies" a wonderful twist on the period. I really enjoyed her telling of this tale of the magic of finding Christmas love. Georgie Lee was another new author and I will be on the lookout for more books by her.
I think we all feel like we don't fit in at time, but finding that perfect partner makes all the pieces fit. Ann Lethbridge wrote a short but sweet story reminding that you can't paint a Another lovely Christmas themed anthology. Ann Lethbridge wrote a short but sweet story reminding that you can't paint all men with the same paintbrush. Adam Royston is indeed a Christmas miracle to Cassie Norton as she makes her way through a life that has not always been kind to her.
Nov 24, Elaine rated it really liked it Shelves: I love how CK stories are mostly about "working people", such as sailors, soldiers, and the like. Sometimes makes a change from the ballroom or country house stories, although I do love a good story about the ton! I must look into her other books. I like her writing very much. Some funny bits at the start. Loved the large fantastic family members. A very enjoyable read. Another good read, although not into it as much as the other two. Not too many characters, although I did love Adam! Nov 25, Barb in Maryland rated it really liked it Shelves: The rating is for the Carla Kelly story, which is the reason I bought the book.

Lovely story set during the war with France. Gruff sailing master, charming young woman, nasty father hers , charming aunt also hers. Did not disappoint me at all. However, I was less enchanted with the other two stories. The main characters just seemed so young in maturity, if not also in years. And I got rather tired of young Daisy. I had the most troub The rating is for the Carla Kelly story, which is the reason I bought the book. I had the most trouble with the third story--too much insta-lust on his part. Plus he lets his masquerade carry on entirely too long.
Now to re-read the Kelly story Jan 08, Jennifer Rials added it. I've read books by Georgie Lee before and decided this would be great way to read two new authors. I found myself enjoying the 3 stories all for different reasons. Carla Kelly's 'Christmas Eve Proposal' was a slow burn with quiet emotion that just sneaks up on you.
Georgie Lee's 'The Viscount's Christmas Kiss' was full of emotion with great secondary characters to bring in the laughter. And the last story by Ann Lethridge, 'Wallflower, Widow Definite I've read books by Georgie Lee before and decided this would be great way to read two new authors. These 3 stories fell flat especially the one by Georgie Lee The Viscount's Christmas Kiss what an annoying couple so self pitying. Wallflower,Widow,Wife by Ann Lethbridge I didn't finish because it was too unbelievable could not invest anymore time to it.
Christmas Eve Proposal by Carla Kelly to me was a different take on Marrying the Captain a book by her that was superior. Well written, enjoyable romance. The premise of this book is good. Sad lord meets widow with two daughters. He helps her and becomes find of her. When she is threatened, he helps her. It is a good read but due to its short length I found the pace of the book uneven.
The ending was very rushed. Still is was written and enjoyable. Mar 08, Nancy Luebke rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this set of Historical Christmas stories. I've given it a overall 4. There was a little bit of action, a little bit romance, and a little bit of personal struggle with HEA for each one.
