    Nice holiday short story

    This was a nice short story. I sometimes enjoy a complete story that can be read and a single sitting and this one had a lot of great things going for it. This story is listed as being part of a series but it reads perfectly well as a stand alone. I was pulled into the story almost immediately and found myself really enjoying myself as I read. This story focuses on Amanda, who owns a cotton mill in America, and Stephen, who is working hard on factory reform. Stephen assumes that Amanda's factory has to similar to the ones he has witnessed. Amanda is a different kind of factory owner. She actually cares about her employees and works hard to ensure their safety. Amanda agrees to an interview with Stephen but only if he introduces her to some of his sources. I liked Amanda and Stephen as a couple. They have immediate chemistry with each other from the start of the story even though they disagree on just about everything. As they spend more time with each other, they both learn that things are not always as it seems. I loved the sections of the book with the mistletoe - it was just a lot of fun. My only complaint about this story was the oddly placed sex scene. I don't feel like a sex scene is a necessity in a romance novel although I do enjoy them when they are well written and help advance the plot. A sex scene squeezed into a book in an unnatural location isn't sexy. This pair are in a burning building and it looks like they are going to perish. Do they keep working to find a way out? No. They decide that this is the perfect time to have sex. It just didn't feel realistic to me at all. I would recommend this novella to fans of historical romance. I had a lot of fun reading the story even with the oddly place sex scene. The characters were fun and intelligent. I plan to read more of Sabrina Jeffries work in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via NetGalley.

    beautiful story

    This was a beautiful story about two people who wanted to change the world of the cotton mill workers. One was the American heiress Amanda Keane who owns her own mill in America. The other is Stephen Cory a second son turned journalist and activist fighting for the rights of the poor mill workers in England. He sees her as just another mill owner and that she can't possibly be different or compassionate in her dealings with her workers. She sees him as a man hell bent on putting all mill owners into a dark and greedy light. Neither wants to know the other, but when he mistakes her under the mistletoe both of their paths are irrevocably changed. Their love story was sweet. My only pet peeve was that when they give in to their passions, it is in the basement of a mill that is burning down and they are blocked from the only escape route available to them. Hundreds of people are outside, and they all know that both ran into the burning building to save a little boy. I understand that they thought they were going to die but really, in a situation like that how could they think about having sex! Confessing their love, yes. Kissing passionately, definitely yes. But full blown, first time for her sex, no. It was weird. I get the passion filled and emotionally charged moment but going all the way was a bit too far fetched for me. I would have preferred for them to come together once back at the estate. That was my only pet peeve. I enjoyed the story, plot line, and character development. I loved how he purposes to her at the end.A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

    Great characters and a great happy ending!

    The Heiress and the Hothead is the story of Lord Stephen Corry and Amanda Keane, Jeremy Keane's sister. I loved these two together. They both tended to speak their minds and were both also very stubborn. I love how they worked together to find out secret things about the London mills. And the whole thing about the mistletoe was wonderful! Great characters and a great happy ending!

    Great short story!

    The Heiress and the Hothead is a great holiday historical romance. Amanda Keane is a cotton mill owner in America and has traveled to England to observe how mills are run there and to visit her brother. She happens to attend the same party as Stephen Cory, an English journalist who is out to expose the unfair work practices in the mills. A chance mistaken kiss under the mistletoe brings them together. They certainly have a difference of opinions about each other and the sparing commences. They find that all is not so bad, and realize that they are in love as they are helping out at a burning mill and get trapped in the fire. This is a great short holiday story and can be found in the novella Under the Mistletoe as well. I received this book for an honest review.
