    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.

    Fun historical romance for the holidays

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. After her best friend, Lady Natalie, inexplicably publicly betrays her by starting an untrue an scandalous rumor about her that ruins her debut season in London and leaves her reputation in tatters, painfully shy Lady Pippa Godfrey flees to the quiet sanctuary of the country where she awaits the arrival of her parents for the holidays. But when a storm delays them, late one night she finds an unexpected visitor pounding on her door, seeking shelter for the night. Knowing it is improper for an unchaperoned young woman to receive male guests, Lady Pippa is hesitant to admit the stranger, however, the raging storm, the man's roguish good looks, and her guest's commanding personality conspire to convince her to extend traditional hospitality to him. Lucas Hartfeld, the Earl of Maddox and son of the Marquis of Bowmont, is on his way to Lady Natalie's holiday party where he expects his parents to finalize his betrothal to her when the wheel on his carriage breaks and the storm compels him to seek shelter at Lady Pippa's home. But as Lucas and Pippa find themselves marooned together at her home for several days by the inclement weather, Lucas finds himself thinking not of his soon-to-be betrothed, but of the enchanting Lady Pippa. Will Lucas find a way to escape the match his parents want to make for him in favor of following his own heart? Will Pippa be open to love, or will the betrayals of her past keep her from trusting ever again? This charming Christmas novella follows a fairly predictable plot line, however, the lively banter between Pippa and Lucas keeps it entertaining. The author paints a vivid portrait of Lucas as a tortured soul haunted by the tragedy experienced in his childhood, then compounded by its mishandling by his seemingly unfeeling parents. Pippa is also well-drawn as a wounded young woman struggling to understand why a friend would choose to hurt her in such an egregious manner without allowing herself to become bitter, though at times she seems too forgiving and kind to be true. The mystery behind Natalie's actions is never addressed, though the reader can make an educated guess, but a longer format addressing this point would have made for a more satisfying read. Overall, this novella is a festive, quick read that fans of historical fiction will enjoy passing an afternoon with to get into the holiday spirit.

    Short story

    Love both the characters, very nice story but a little too short for my liking. It felt like the story needed to be a little longer.

    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.
