REVIEW His Mistletoe Wager

Ealing Lady Elizabeth Wilding’s kisses A woman who refuses to be charmedOnce jilted Lizzie must guard her heart because the ton is unaware of her scandalous secret her son Despite their increasing. This is my first Christmas book of the year and it is a doozy and it can t be kept just for Christmas His Mistletoe Wager should be read now and then again and again and then at Christmas and then againFive years earlier Elizabeth Lizzie Wilding is waiting in the church for the love of her life only to be horrible jilted by only to be told by a note hastely scribbled She is broken this man was suppose to be her happy ever after she had given him everything even her innocence only for him to jilt her Leaving her facing scandal and censor not only that but leaving her pregnantNow she is five years older she has sworn off men for the rest of her life she has built a wall around her heart and no man will ever broach it again the only man she wants in her life is her son George She has decided that now her son is getting older she is to leave her aristocratic life and move to Yorkshire in peace where her and her cute as button son George can live without all the cloak and dagger creeping around as what happens now She has planned to live her life as a widow which is entirely proper and also she knows that as a widow her son will be accepted But unfortunately for lizzie her father has yet again decided that she needs to get herself back on the marriage market and it would be in her best interest to find a gent and get marriedTo not only complicate things and make matters worse for her she has caught the attention of the rakish and womanizing Henry Stuart the new Earl of Redbridge for whatever reason he has suddenly decided that she is exactly what he needs to get through this Christmas He makes her a bargain that she cannot possibly pass up but in dealing with the devil himself will she be able to fulfil her dream of living independently Or will she succumb to his charmsThe initial meeting between her and Hal is really very funny he forces himself in to her little bubble and she is just so irritated by him She literally think of him as a pesky wasp that first needs swatting with a good old fashioned barbed tongue lashing When that doesn t work she decided that the only way to make the wasp go away is to ignore it which is highly amusingI really like Lizzie people from society may think of her as an ice ueen and a boring old spinster who wouldn t know fun if it danced naked in front of her but that s just a visage That s how she wants everyone to think her to be that way she is protecting her damaged heart and her young son She is a really good mother to him she tries her very utmost best for him and her plan to move to the country to live as a widow is proof of far she will go to make sure her son gets the very best life And to be perfectly honest I can t fault her for her plan to live in a secluded cottage in Yorkshire The girl is on the moneyI like her father as well the way he protects his daughter from the society vultures he makes sure that after the jilting no scandal will tarnish Lizzie s name He even goes against the grain of the time by letting Lizzie keep her illegitimate son which was very rare as most unwed aristocratic women had their children taken away to hide the scandal I applaud him for that and I highly applaud him for what he did maybe not the best course of action but applaudable anywayHal has got to the point in his life where he is bored of the rakish behaviour he want s something to fill his days Not just a uick tryst with a willing widow he finds that since gaining the title he has found an whole new love of books and politics and how things are runHe has spent his life going against the grain and flaunting his rakish ways for all and sundry to see but now that he has taken his rightful place in parliament he finds that he enjoys the debates He is growing into the Earl we know deep down he is and we as readers can see what he s missing in his life and why he isn t as bothered with bed hopping as he used to be But as ever with our heroes it does take them a while to get to the conclusion that Yes he needs a woman A good strong woman who can put him in his placeI do love a Christmas story and this is such a sweet festive tale that can be read at any time For me Lizzie s personal struggle and trials that she has to face and what she has gone through is the centre stone of the book and that s what Heath is particularly very good at She brings the character s alive and as always Heath transports you to another time and place with her charming and enigmatic writing which is as ever spot onFor me Aaron does steal the book but that s probably because I have a soft spot for him I love what Heath s done with him and his family it s so good catching up with Connie and Aaron and seeing how well their doing and how they are still the super cute couple they were in the end of their bookOver all Ms Heath has done it again she had created a fun Christmassy and intriguing love story and one that I highly recommend
