12 Days of Christmas Books ~ Mary's Christmas Knight by Moriah Densley

Book Summary:

Could a rogue be her knight in shining armor?

Mary Cavendish’s corset is already too tight. All the lovely Christmas food is tempting her, and that’s bad news for her dream of attracting a “knight on a white charger” — not that volunteering at the parish hospital is how she expects to meet him. Enter a mysterious Christmas Eve patient, who is none other than the famous Shakespearean actor Sir Wesley Samuel Darcy. Mary finds him arrogant, too forward… and maddeningly handsome.

When Mary learns Sir Wesley has been invited to spend Christmas with her family at Rougemont, she vows to resist the charming London rogue. Wesley thinks finding the perfect present for Miss Cavendish will tempt her — she’s not as prim as she pretends to be. Mary turned down six proposals last Season, and she’s not about to give in to a rake. But if Mary can’t resist the sugarplums, how can she resist the dashing Sir Wesley?

My Review:

This is a Christmas Novella, so it was a very quick read. I love how the author gets right into the story from the beginning, we learn about Mary on Christmas eve and how she is a nurse and crushing on the doctor. Mary is a very likable character and you feel sad about the doctor is totally oblivious to Mary liking him. Sir Wesley on the other hand took some getting used to especially as this is a regency novella I wasn't expecting Sir Wesley to be so forward towards Mary, he really was a bit of an a#@. By the end of the novella I was finding it hard to resist Sir Wesley and hoping that Mary would give him a chance and see where things could go with him. I found myself wishing the book was a bit longer and we could see more of a romantic relationship develop between Mary and Sir Wesley. One thing I wasn't a fan of was the beginning of each chapter there was a quote, excerpt from history. I am not really a history buff or poetry. Other than that I give this book a 3.75 out of 5 stars.
