Publisher's Summary

Anything can happen at Christmas!

When her father threatens to marry Abigail Montross off to a man twice her age (and with 13 children!), she decides to elope instead with the irresistibly handsome Baron de Vasconia. She knows all about his notorious reputation. He is the most seductive man in all of London, but he's vowed to protect her, so she allows herself to be tempted into his bed, promising to guard her heart at all costs.

Andres believes he's entered into nothing more than a marriage of convenience with a charming and very wealthy young woman. But the days and nights Abigail spends in his arms soon reform this rogue. He'll do anything to gain her love until they each discover the truth about the other, and old wounds are revealed.

It's the season of miracles and passion, when love not only awakens the senses but delivers the greatest gift of all.

LOVED the narrator

I have to disagree with the other reviewers. I think Jamie Birch did a fantastic job with the narration. In fact, she was the main reason I enjoyed this story so much! The narrator has SO much to do with the quality of an audio book. Ms. Birch captured each character with a different voice, and her reading wasn’t monotonous or dull. Just listen to the audio sample and you’ll know if this one’s for you. As for me, I’ll be keeping my eye out for more from Ms. Birch!

Interesting...wanting for a bit more

This story seemed to begin with all the right elements and progressed that way. and the characters were interesting...I thought the end of the book seemed to lack the detail of the beginning and was a bit lackluster...needed more detail.

Well worth a listen

Would you listen to His Christmas Pleasure again? Why?

I would listen to again

Who was your favorite character and why?

Abbey is an interesting girl, with a mind of her own.

Any additional comments?

The reader was very good which added to the story. I must say I would listen to more of these books as I found it very easy listening and not a boring plot line.

poor story poorer reader

The story was barely believable and increasingly annoying as phrases were repeated again and again; the reader however was even worse - it was a test of courage and endurance to finish

Christmas Pleasure is Pleasurable

Enjoyed "His Christmas Pleasure." Very romantic and fun to read. Just love Cathy Maxwell's happy endings! This couple had a very rocky road to love but very satisfying when they finally made it.
