    Regency Christmas Romance - Novella

    This is a Christmas novella that looks at friendship and families and how they can make or break a person’s life. Lady Pippa Godfrey is a genuinely good person who has been hurt during her first season in London. One night, when her parents were visiting friends, a bad storm brings Lucas Hartfield, Earl of Maddox, to her door seeking shelter since his carriage is stuck in the mud. As is expected of her she does find a room for Lucas and space for his servants. The storm continues a few more days stranding him with Pippa for a few days. With nothing but time on their hands they get to know one another, manage a kiss under the mistletoe and then say goodbye to one another only to have her parents return, neighbors and Lucas’s parents also arrive a bit of drama ensue. Eventually there is the HEA ending for all. This a fun easy holiday story that would be a treat to read before a fire on a cold winter day. It would have made an excellent novel with more fleshing out and time involved but I enjoyed this almost love at first sight story and think you will, too. Thank you to NetGalley for the copy to read in exchange for my honest review. 3.5 Stars

    Sweet and romantic story.

    What an amazingly sweet story. I love how readers can get so caught up in Pippa's story, she is sweet,smart, and beautiful. Pippa's 1st season was not all she expected with the betrayal of her closest friends Natalie and she remains clueless as to why the sudden change in there friendship, however while spending time in the country for Christmas she finds love. During a storm, an unexpected visitor comes along who needs more than just a dry place to lay his head, Lucas who has a sad past, and no real love from his family wants to be a good son and aggrees to a loveless marriage to Natalie. After spending a few days with Pippa he opens up, and falls in love, now he has to either follow his heart or marry a girl he does not even know to make his parents happy. I love their story and can't wait for Natalie's.

    Loved it!

    'A Kiss at Christmastide' by Christina McKnight is the story of Lady Pippa Godfrey and Lucas Hartfeld, the Earl of Maddox. Lady Pippa and her best friend were to make their coming out but something happened that ended up putting Lady Pippa in a slight scandal. Lady Pippa has put herself from the town's view and into one of her family's country Somerset estate. Lady Pippa has been there a while awaiting the arrival of her parents for the Christmastide. But the only thing to arrive is a bad storm and Hartfeld. Hartfeld carriage has broken a wheel and is stuck in the mud of the storm. Hartfeld is head to a Holiday party that his parents insist that he attends. Hartfeld thinks the party will have his parents wanting him to become engaged to a certain lady there. So he is in no hurry to attend and is happy enough to stay at Lady Pippa house. But these two, have been battling their words and trying to fight a growing attraction. When I started reading this I had to know how it ended. I felt for Lady Pippa and how hard I am sure it was to try to trust and understand a close hurt that came to send her off into her own exile. Hartfeld had a few things to work out too. I loved these to together in addition to their smart banter between them. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Superb Read

    Lady Pippa Godfrey has few friends in the ton and soon has one less and she doesn’t even know why. Escaping to the country Pippa longs for nothing but a quiet family Christmas. Alas, fate has other plans. The absence of her parents, a winter storm, and an overbearing lord threaten the very peace she is looking for. As hours turn into days Pippa soon learns the true man behind the face he presents. When the weather improves will she be able to face what she perceives as a betrayal of the worst kind? Lucas Hartfield, the Earl of Maddox, wants many things in life none of which include a trip to the country to meet the girl his parents have chosen for him. His foul mood does not improve when a winter storm erupts and forces him to find shelter and worsens when the young chit who answers the door refuses him admittance. Asserting his status he works his way in for what should be one night. As that one night turns into days Lucas finds himself drawn to the unpretentious lady, so unlike the ladies of the ton. As the weather improves and he makes to leave to disabuse his family of who is to marry things take a terrible turn. Will he be able to forward or will a misstep cost him what he holds dear I absolutely loved this story! Christina McKnight does a fabulous job engaging all the emotions and gives her characters such depth with room to grow. Pippa’s growth from a naïve young girl (and in many ways she retains that innocence) to a young lady discovering love and all the moments in between are a delight to read. Spending time with Pippa starts to change Lucas’ jaded view of the ton as he learns to relax and enjoy the simple things. However, when the outside world makes its way in watching these two revert to their former selves was enough to make me what to smack them both. When Lucas learns that something Pippa loves will be threatened if he continues to do as his father wishes he finally grows a backbone and I couldn’t help but cheer. This event also sheds a new light on Pippa’s former friend; a light I look forward to reading about in the future.
