Release Date: October 03, 2017
Tracy’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
An absolutely delightful second chance at love Christmas novella.
While this is billed as a Lords of Anarchy novella, it has a nice little tie into the Study in Scandals series as well.
Merry Parks was betrothed to Alex, Viscount Wrotham five years ago, but for seemingly no reason, she broke off their engagement and left Alex with no explanation.
Fast forward Five years, Merry’s dearest friend Charlotte has passed away from a childbed fever, but she has made Merry promised to find the baby’s father. The baby’s father happens to be Alex’s cousin. Willing to do whatever she must to find the father, she goes to see Alex.
Alex has never gotten over Merry and still doesn’t understand why she left him. When they meet again he realizes that he still loves her and will use this opportunity to woo her again.
He invites her to his family’s Christmas gathering, telling her the baby’s father will be there, she reluctantly agrees to go. She thought she put her feelings for Alex in the past, but seeing him again, makes her realize that she still has strong feeling for him and she is not sure she can walk away again.
What follows is a well written, nicely paced, very sweet story of lost love found, secrets revealed, jealous harpies reeking havoc, a bit of steam and a very lovely HEA.
I would be happy to recommend this book, which is part of the LOA series, but could easily be read as a stand alone title.
