    What?? Another doormat story?

    It seems that the author has an inclination in doormat stories. This is the third doormat story in the series/spin-off. Which makes me wonder whether the author has pride at all.

    Two souls perfectly matched regardless of age

    Christmas at Eden Manor is a relatively light-hearted romance based around Christmas in terms of time of year and mixes a temporary romance with an older man, younger woman romance. I can guarantee most contemporary romance fans will enjoy this book, especially if you enjoy slightly maturer romances. From the moment Brie and Cyrus meet, it’s clear the two main characters, have an attraction that they are unable to resist based upon their mutual interests that build a solid foundation. The development of their connection continues to clearly be explored and developed and, through the use of dual points of views, you get to know and understand the feelings of both clearly and how perfectly matched these two souls are for each other, regardless of age, although the issue isn’t just ignored and dealt with over the course of the book. As stated, there is an age difference between these two but the age difference is never an issue as both characters felt on an equal level of maturity (he’s in his fifties, she nearly thirty) but don’t think as a result of the age thing it will be dull - there it is still plenty of raunchy moments at times. Brie complimented Cyrus perfectly as they grow closer during their initial temporary arrangement. Brie and Cyrus are very likeable characters who felt very real but flawed as they go through various emotions on their journey to a HEA. The book is well written, as always by this author, and a solid sweet contemporary romance. The book is fairly steady paced, although, in terms of time frames, it all takes place over only a couple of weeks. There are some stubborn, angsty moments at times but this is mostly a light-hearted read. Also, although it’s Christmas themed, if you are a bit apprehensive about that, be assured Christmas isn’t the focus point, more just the general time of year setting, so can be enjoyed any time. For fans of this author, it was great catching up with other characters from some of Noelle Adams’ other books and the overlap with them. However, for those who haven’t read any other books by this author, this can be read as a standalone with just enough information given to fill you in on important bits that are necessary (I’ve personally only read a handful of other books so didn’t know all characters). There is a really sweet epilogue and HEA, tying up Cyrus and Brie’s story completely. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

    Heartwarming Christmas romance!

    Brie Graves is in Savannah, Georgia, currently unemployed after finishing her latest restoration project. She’s staying with her brother Michael and determined to enjoy a few weeks of holidays right before Christmas, even while scoping out possible new jobs. At a café, she discovers a handsome middle-aged gentleman expressing interest in the same painting that has caught her attention. Determined to be a little more bold and daring than in the past, she starts a conversation with him. And the next day, when both are at the café at the same time, they connect once again. Soon, they are spending their free time together, as Cyrus Damon is also on an extended holiday break, though for opposite reasons as he is a workaholic on an enforced vacation. But they’ve set a time limit which when ended, will see Cyrus return to his life in England and their relationship a memory to cherish. Falling in love was never part of the plan but will they admit to their true feelings for each other before it’s too late? It’s no secret that I’m a fan of this author’s writing, and I’ve read every book in the three series mentioned above. When I heard that Cyrus Damon, the gruff and sometimes taciturn uncle to the Damon nephews who star in the Heirs of Damon series was going to get a story, I was excited to read it. And tying off all three series in one novella sounded like quite the feat to achieve but I am very pleased with the result and have already picked out some of the stories to put on my comfort re-read list. In this novella, we see a different side to Cyrus, the intelligent and hardworking man showing a much more emotional character. Raising two of his nephews after the untimely death of their parents (his brothers and their wives) was a challenge, one he fears he didn’t cope with well, as evidenced by their sometimes fractious relationships and the errors he made in their upbringing. But in the last few years, as they’ve found partners, he’s become aware of his mistakes and made much greater efforts to be a part of their lives and to express his true affection for all four of his nephews. In this story, he comes across as a changed man indeed, with the core of his genteel character still in place, but one willing to take a few more risks, this time with his heart. Though Brie is a good number of years younger than Cyrus (almost 30 to his undefined but likely early fifties age), she finds him quite attractive – both in his physical appearance as well as his focus on her when they are together. He really listens to her and is so different from her last boyfriend that she has to caution herself (to no avail) not to read anything more into their friendship. But soon they find that their equal attraction leads to some steamy lovemaking that neither regrets even though they’ve decided on an end date for their time together. Brie’s character in contrast to Cyrus is a little bohemian, fun and flirty and open-hearted. It’s no wonder he falls for her, but the reality of their age difference makes him believe that she’d never be satisfied with an older man like himself in the long run. It’s this that keeps him guarding his heart until it’s almost too late. In the end, though, he comes to his senses and we get a delightful ending matched with the warm feelings evoked from the Christmas season. It’s a holiday romance but a timeless story. 5 stars.
