Publisher's Summary

Camille, Lady Lydingham, knows precisely what she wants for Christmas - an official engagement to a handsome, dashing prince. Her very proper suitor expects a proper English family and the perfect Dickensian Christmas, which leaves the lovely widow with a slight problem. The last thing Camille wants is for the prince to meet her unconventional relatives. But with the aid of a troupe of actors, Camille intends to pull off a Christmas deception of massive proportions. At least until Grayson Elliot shows up.

A dozen years ago, he declared his love on the day before her marriage to another man, then vanished from her life. Now he’s back, gate-crashing Camille’s already chaotic house party, playing absolute havoc with her scheme - and with her heart. Because for Grayson, losing Camille once was quite bad enough. Losing her twice? Unthinkable. And he’ll find a way to show her they belong together - for this season, and every Christmas yet to come....

    "A CARRY ON OF A VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS"

    This had the feel of the old British Carry On films as it's a real farce of a romantic comedy and it took me a little while to get into the 'mindset' of the book. Lady Camille wants to catch a Prince so, unbeknown to him, she hires Actors to play her family members and staff to put on a charade of a Dickensian Christmas with hilarious consequences. But an old flame (Grayson) arrives who has always loved her and, after 11 years apart, she starts to doubt what she should do or wants but in the meantime the show must go on otherwise she will be the talk of the ton and so she has to allot him a role in her 'play'. Then more and more things go wrong and unexpected people start turning up too.

    It's soooo funny with great characters and a totally unbelievable plot - it's a real family tongue-in-cheek Disney type listen that's got a sweet romance running right through it.

    Worth a credit? No hot and heavy, no evil villains, no harm to anyone - just a listen that will make you visualise a lol humorous play - but it was so definitely worth the credit.

    "Fun Victorian Romance!"

    What happens when a young, rich Victorian widow decides she wants to marry a Prince from a small country? What happens when said Prince decides to travel incognito? What happens when this widow decides to hire actors to play her family and servants? Well, all could go as planned---or----!!

    What happens when our heroine's long lost love comes back after eleven years? What happens when the actress playing the Mom continues to forget her name? And another actress decides to flirt with the prince?

    There is a lot of humor in this farce. There is also a lot of emphasis on communication and forgiveness. Of course, the obligatory sex scene changes everything for our characters. For all those who enjoy Victorian romances, this book will win over your hearts!

    "Good Christmas romance."
    Any additional comments?

    Always wonderful to have a rich romance novel that is timed around the Christmas Season. I loved both sisters for their differences.
