. . . I feel I should inform you that your mother is very
ill. If you wish to see her before it is too late, you
should come at once. Sincerely, Mrs. Camilla Stuart
Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has led an unabashed
rogue's life, letting no woman near his heart. Inexplicably
abandoned as a child to be raised by distant relatives, he
never forgave his parents, refusing to read any of his
mother's letters after his father's death. Then came a
letter that shook his resolve. A Christmas visit to
Montcliff might prove his last chance to discover the truth
of his past, and come to terms with the stranger he
But two surprises await him at Montcliff. His mother is
perfectly healthy, nowhere near a deathbed as her meddling
lady's companion led him to believe. The second is Camilla
Stuart herself, a lively vicar's widow, too bright and
beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce. Though she
alone is reason enough to prolong his stay, he is soon
faced with other tantalizing riddles: what secrets lie in
his mother's past to explain his childhood abandonment? Why
is the captivating Mrs. Stuart so determined to mend the
breach between mother and son? Meanwhile, Camilla herself
is caught up in love's complications since the arrival of
the irresistible Earl. As his bold flirtation and
suggestive whispers draw her dangerously close, can
anything protect her vulnerable heart? If they are destined
to share real happiness, there must be honesty between
them—yet telling him the truth about her own life may
shatter that chance.
None of them can predict the startling revelations to come.
Or the secrets, both heartening and shocking, divulged
between a mother and son, and between two lovers haunted by
their respective pasts, that will make Christmas night at
Montcliff one to remember—and the glorious night
after, one to treasure for a lifetime.

Re: 'Twas The Night After Christmas
I love Christmas stories about family that has been estranged. Camilla sounds
like a pistol, with the sparks flying between her and the earl;I am sure this will be
a HEA. Thanks for the contest.

Ms. Jeffries's latest book "Twas the Night After Christmas" is a holiday warmer with characters having high emotions during the time of the holidays.
Skillfully written, her characters Pierce and Camilla contribute to a lovely
Christmas story. Both of them find that they lived similar hurts in the past.
Trusting each other, a friendship will bloom between Pierce and Camilla.
I loved Camilla's son Jasper. Camilla cannot understand why Pierce ignores his mother. Being a straight-forward person, Camilla will try to solve the mother-son problems.
You will have to read the story to find out! This book should be on your Christmas list for the ones you love. Full of emotions, this book is a story of forgiveness..Let yourself be carried away by this beautiful Christmas romance. I highly recommend Ms. Jeffries's "Twas the Night After Christmas"
