Genre: historical romance
The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and Hogmanay in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration--the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life--one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match, to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe. Ian begins a new obsession, and Beth fears that the loss of one of his precious bowls has made him withdraw once more into his private world.
I enjoyed this novella so much. If you love this series as much as I do, you really, really need to buy this story, and read it. It is just a catch up with all the characters out of the series, their lives, their children, and all against a lovely Christmas setting. Ian and Beth, Hart and Eleanor, Cameron and Ainsley, Isabel and Mac, and Daniel. Then there is David, and Isabel’s sister Louisa, the MacKenzie half brother policeman, and Ainsley’s brothers, the McBride’s.
There is not much of a plot, a missing child, a broken bowl, the effort in finding a new one, Eleanor being very pregnant. It is just a sweet story, an update and of course to get you in the mood for the next book in the series, The Seduction of Elliot McBride.
And as usual, now I really want to reread Ian’s book. He is still my favourite.
It is only $ 0,99 at Smashwords at the moment, and totally worth its money, as it over 200 pages. Here is the buy link: buy here
