Holiday | Romance Historical
No one would ever guess that Lady Louisa, the most reserved
of the Duke of Moreland's daughters, had published a book of
racy poems under a pseydonym on a dare. Before she can buy
and destroy all of the copies, a dastardly fortune hunter
seeks to compromise her reputation by revealing her secret
identity at a holiday ball.
Before she can be publicly ruined, close family friend Sir
Joseph Carrington saves the day by offering to marry Louisa.
As he recites poetry to her, waltzes with her by starlight,
and showers her with lovely kisses, they both begin to
discover that their match may be the best Christmas gift
either has ever received...

I haven't read any of Grace's books, but many friends have

Alisha, you will LOVE Grace's writing. She's a superstar, believe me!

I have my own personal little Christmas tradition. I find the
really old version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol on TV (not
the George C. Scott version) and wrap presents while watching
it with a cup of hot chocolate all by myself.
(Michelle Whitwam 12:13pm October 26, 2012)
I would love to read Grace's book. I like Christmas stories (movies too) because they usually have a happy ending.
(Lori Yost 12:13pm October 26, 2012)
Please don't enter me, because I already have this wonderful book. I just wanted to encourage folks who may not have found Grace's books yet to go get them right now. She has written some beautiful historical romances, with memorable characters. Thank you, Grace.

I must admit I am addicted to Christmas stories. It could be the traditions, the food, the tree and all the trimmings, but I truly think that it simply the season. The season of hope and miracles, the season that brings the best in people and the light of humanity shines bright.
(Carla Carlson 12:43pm October 26, 2012)
I love Christmas stories. My husband and I got engaged around Christmas, and it still holds a special place in my heart. It was the day baby Jesus was born, and it still is a season of hope and joy.
(Cathy Phillips 1:05pm October 26, 2012)
Christmas stories are special. They seem to have a touch of magic and leaves the reader with a feeling that the world is a wonderful place.
(Anna Speed 1:14pm October 26, 2012)
Christmas stories and movies are what it takes to get me in a holiday mood.
(Sheila True 1:32pm October 26, 2012)
Christmas stories are a once a year special thing. Thank you for them.
(Cynthia St. Germain 1:42pm October 26, 2012)
I love the happy & arm feeling I get from reading Holiday books... always puts me in a good mood!
(Colleen Conklin 1:51pm October 26, 2012)
I love the Christmas theme it is such a beautiful time of year and add in
romance and you have a great pairing. They put me in the mood for all the
preparations for the Christmas season. I love the holidays when I can find
all the beautiful romances like Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight.
(Ann Sheiring 2:12pm October 26, 2012)
Sounds great. Look forward to finding new authors.
(Holly Vanderhule 2:12pm October 26, 2012)
The Christmas season is a first class ticket to impulse, foolishness, mingling, feasting, gifting, vacationing, re-unioning, and every manner of merriment and extravagance.....leading to the more "sobering" acknowledgements of New Year's eve when life again becomes a slide to the next Fall holidays! Christmas stories imbue sparkling possibilities with great dollops of emotion, drawing each of us annually back to favorite and/or new novels, films, and/or plays which capture this nostalgic, magical season in stories of universal hope, redemption, and transformation.
(Carla Schuller 2:21pm October 26, 2012)
I have the book so don't need to be entered. I love Christmas books, Grace,
because if they are done well, Christmas is actually a character--the main
character! That is, the story would not work at any other season. It is the spirit
of Christmas that seals the love of the two main characters. You do it well! I
loved Sophie's Christmas story as well as Louisa's.
(Mary Balogh 2:28pm October 26, 2012)
I love the Christmas season with snow covering the lawn and the baking Christmas sprinz cookies and the smell of a newly cut Christmas tree filling the house.
I love the soothing sound of Chirstmas music playing in the background while the grandchilren ask to have their favorite Christmas stories read in front of a warm fire after building a snow man outside.
I also love that quiet time at the end of the day to curl up in a chair and read a Christmas book after a hectic day at work. You always now that the happy ending is coming and that you can just sit back and enjoy the pranks any misunderstandings because you know in the end there will be a "happily ever after".
This year I'm already starting to gather together my favorite Christmas books and right on top I have Lady Sophia's Christmas to read. Last year when I first read it I loved the interaction between Vim and Sophia from the time they first met at the Inn until they found their own happy ending!
For me Chirstmas isn't truly complete without a story of love and a happy ending!
(Jeanne Miro 2:53pm October 26, 2012)
I read several Christmas romances every year. They are just extra-heartwarming, and they really get you in the Christmas spirit.
(Cheryl Castings 3:00pm October 26, 2012)
I think what I love most about Christmas stories is the setting, snow, cozy fires and roasted chestnut.
(Theresa Norris 3:05pm October 26, 2012)
I like the family part and happily ever after. :)
(May Pau 3:24pm October 26, 2012)
I love all the emotions surrounding the holidays as well as seeing the different holiday traditions.
(Chelsea Knestrick 3:27pm October 26, 2012)
I like Christmas stories because there's usually more happiness and people working together.
(Cheryl McEwen 3:32pm October 26, 2012)
I love stories about different Christmas traditions. I think
that they make the season special for all.
(Mary Hay 3:42pm October 26, 2012)
It's interesting to me that nobody has mentioned the weather, not the day-at-the-beach Christmas weather Down Under, or the White Christmases we have occasionally here in the Northern Hemisphere. And I have wonder: Am I the only one who has to watch Rudolph, The Grinch, Charlie Brown, and It's a Wonderful Life? (Though I like that hot chocolate and presents idea, too).
(Grace Burrowes 3:44pm October 26, 2012)
I LOVE CHRISTMAS STORIES BECAUSE I FINALLY MET MY TRUE LOVE ON
CHRISTMAS AND IT BRINGS LOVE ONES TOGETHER.
(Shelly Caggiano 3:49pm October 26, 2012)
I love Christmas stories and you do a wonderful job with them!!
(Betty Hamilton 4:19pm October 26, 2012)
I really love picking out the perfect gives for everyone in my family. I like seeing them open it and their reactions. Oh, and when we open presents we always turn on the yule log on TV since we don't have a fire place. It's cheesy, but I like it.
(Jenny Yetman 4:56pm October 26, 2012)
I really love reading Christmas stories. It gets me in the Christmas spirit and joyful mood just reading about different holiday traditions, decorating, snow, cozy fireplaces, family and friends gathering together, etc. All very captivating and heartwarming!
(Linda Luinstra 5:45pm October 26, 2012)
christmas & love just go together ;) it's a time of family togetherness & being grateful for blessings
(d Kenney 5:52pm October 26, 2012)
I read Christmas stories because they bring the magic of the season, the peacefulness of being with family, and because they put me in a good mood and help me get through all the family drama of the Holiday Seasons.
(Kai Wong 6:29pm October 26, 2012)
I like reading about other traditions at Christmas - what foods will they be serving and eating (even the icky ones are interesting)? what gifts are they making for one another? what secrets are they keeping from one another? how are they decorating? is there a family Christmas play? and lastly - what magic will there be? Here in Boston, sometimes we have snow, mostly not, almost always cold and windy - perfect indoor cup-of-hot-chocolate weather; my family in Southern California sometimes goes down to the beach on Christmas Day, and has spray-painted tumbleweeds white to make a 'snowman'!
(Beth Fuller 6:32pm October 26, 2012)
I enjoy reading the Christmas stories.
(Larena Hubble 6:35pm October 26, 2012)
I enjoy reading about how others spend christmas. It is a great time for family and I like reading about it. What food and activities they do. It is my favorite season of the year.
(Emily Bowes 6:39pm October 26, 2012)
Grace, you're books lured me into reading holiday stories.
Usually I avoid them because the last few I read (who knows
what millennia ago)were saccharine and forced. Your stories
bring back the non-commercial joy of the season as a setting
for good characters. Very White Christmas, which is good
after The Long Kiss Goodnight or Die Hard to relieve holiday
(Larisa LaBrant 7:04pm October 26, 2012)
what a coverr, boy to have hair and body like that...love to read the book and pretent that is me...how cool
(Kimberly Hoefs 7:22pm October 26, 2012)
Christmas is my favorite time of the year---for popcorn balls, decorating the tree, and reading at least one Christmas romance.
(Sue Farrell 7:58pm October 26, 2012)
Grace, Love your books! Haven't read Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight, yet, though. I enjoy the extra family time at Christmas and, during the years when there are young children around, I always enjoy watching their enjoyment of the holidays. I have to admit I enjoy the trappings, too, especially the tree, the decorations, and the food!
(Janie McGaugh 8:27pm October 26, 2012)
Love the holidays and seeing the faces of my grandsons when they open their gifts. It is a magical time.
(Rita Wray 8:33pm October 26, 2012)
I like Christmas stories that remind me of traditions that I keep and ones I'd like to incorporate like the Cafeteria Plan for Celebrating.
(Alyson Widen 8:48pm October 26, 2012)
I like baking Christmas cookies--almost as much as I like eating them!
(Grace Burrowes 8:58pm October 26, 2012)
I love reading about different traditions in Christmas stories.
(Mary C 9:16pm October 26, 2012)
I just love your books!
(Nancy Gallagher 9:47pm October 26, 2012)
I love Christmas stories because they always leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. They also make you appreciate what you have. Since I live 200 miles away from my family, and the weather isn't the greatest to travel that time of year, I don't get to see them. My Mother is also gone, and she was the glue that held our family together. I've tried my best to keep our family together, but it hasn't worked, and now my Father has taken ill, so it really won't be the same this year. My heart aches for the times that we were together as a family, and I suppose I'll have to rely on reading good books, and spending the holidays with my Husband and new friends to fill in the void. I'll be anxious to read your latest book.
(Peggy Roberson 10:02pm October 26, 2012)
Love the Christmas stories and the Regency Romances are the best. This books sounds like a good read.
(Barbara Studer 10:56pm October 26, 2012)
I love the music....but the thing I love most is seeing all the couples
spending the holidays together. Shopping, walking and holding hands in
winter clothes...its all so beautiful and romantic. I look forward to the
day when I can spend Christmas with my significant other. This year will
be my first Christmas where I am actually seeing someone who I can
spend the rest of my life with. I think this year will be the best winter
season Ive ever had. =) Hearts to my sea lion
(Samantha King 11:53pm October 26, 2012)
I actually have a little bit of a hard time with Christmas due to my dad leaving on Christmas day and 12 years later my ex-husband walking out on my kids and I on Christmas day. Christmas has always been a time to celebrate family and so now it is all about my precious babies. Even when things get really tight, I know my babies and I have each other and will make it through.
(Lynsey Peterson 1:01am October 27, 2012)
For me Christmas is a time to see family celebrate.
(Maureen Emmons 6:10am October 27, 2012)
I love Christmas romances! Doesn't being a holiday romance limit your sales? I
do know that libraries try to buy only a few each year and the first ones "out"
have the best chance of being bought. Thus saying I start reading as many as I
can and this year I think I started in July (at least putting in request where ever I
go). When I know a title I am on it!
(Sandra Spilecki 11:50am October 27, 2012)
I love Christmas. All the lights & decorations & food...I wonder why we
never think of some foods except at Christmas or Thanksgiving no matter
how much we love it?! :) Anyway, I also love Christmas themed books.
Some of the ones with great covers, I put out as part of my decorations &
handy to read and get more in the mood. I would love to win your book. :)
(Penny Mettert 12:08pm October 27, 2012)
I would say that your top 10 list of reasons to like Christmas stories is pretty much what I enjoy about Christmas, but I must admit that I'm puzzled by all the people who think that H√É¬§ndel's "Messiah" Oratorio was written for the Christmas season.
It was commissioned and written for Easter at the Cathedral in Dublin, Ireland. It has three sections, and only the first one (or "Part the First" as H√É¬§ndel styled it) deals with the Christmas story.
I don't mean to be a nay-sayer about it being played at Christmas, but there is so much more to the Oratorio than that. I highly recommend that people give the entire piece a listen someday - there's so much more there than just the "Hallelujah" Chorus!!
(Lynn Rettig 2:26pm October 27, 2012)
i think Christmas stories are great ! Especially if they include the real meaning of Christmas
