My Thoughts…

This story has believable characters, a festive-inspired plot and forbidden romance. Full of humour and poignancy, it’s lovely. Elfie is a dog nanny, just the person hotelier, Xander, needs to manage his rescue dog, but proximity leads to romance making it, a memorable Christmas. There are plenty of conflicts, lots of vivid festive descriptions and heartwarming romantic moments. Elfie and Xander find they have more in common than they thought. You want them to find happiness, and thankfully after an emotional journey, they get their happy ending.

My Thoughts…

Prince Vincenzo is determined to rescue his country from his father’s excesses and vows to end the monarchy by refusing to marry and father an heir. Avenging his mother, he enlists the help of Eloise, the daughter of his father’s mistress. Eloise is a positive, strong character who has moved on from her destructive past. She has always loved Vincenzo despite his reputation and agrees to help him.

There is an intense passion between Eloise and Vincenzo despite her innocence. The emotional connection between the couple deepens as they realise they have misjudged each other. The story has many festive touches and ends happily after much angst. Believable characters and an appealing fairytale quality make this a lovely holiday read.
