heroheroine chemistry that escalates from warm to scorching hot Here s your perfect romance lover holiday giftOne of the mostistinctive ualities of this historical romance novel is the refreshingly Perfect Girl Evolution Vol. 6 different kind of heroine Young Phoebe Linville lives a very singular condition of outsider among her own people Member of a uaker family but subtly shunned by her community because of hereceased mother s refusal to conform to some tenets of the faith she ecides to accept his maternal grandfather s invitation to leave New Jersey and join him in England The characterization of the female heroine is uite solid and etailed consistent in the way she struggles to meet the rigid expectations of a religious community and gradually reveal a surprisingly head strong and passionate nature Phoebe was Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society doomed to live a uiet spinsterhood steeped in an austere village upbringing but once in England she will meet her perfect half in an unexpected place Major Lucas Stentonistant cousin of hers and heir to her grandfather s earldom welcomes her upon her arrival with two shocking pieces of news her grandfather has passed away Um Fogo Eterno during her boat trip to England not before asking Lucas in his final will to become Phoebe s guardian and husband The marriage may be an arranged one but the chemistry between the handsome

large framed and hard eyed soldier He may have spent years and years on the battle fields leading armies andefeating enemies but he can t resist her innocent beauty and straightforward tongue Despite his reluctance to surrender his heart to any woman after a former lover had Lawn Boy Returns demolished his life Lucas is won by Phoebe s gentle manners and uick wit A cleareclaration of love won t be easily yielded by our emotionally ard soldier when Yolandas Genius dealing with matters of the heart Phoebe s fearless warrior husband turned tail and headed for the hillsBut he tremendously enjoys his wife and while his heart lacks the elouence his actions will speak volumes The author s clever choice to bring the lead characters close together from the start sets the scene for some warm interactions incandescent I would say In the cozy isolation of his country estate and with the aid of a festive Christmas spirit Lucas conducts a sensual assault that will breech Phoebe s inhibitions and crumble his own emotional barriersThe introduction of a secondary plot thread thatoesn t really get thick except for the final pages serves the purpose of enhancing the conflict and test the trust issues between the newly weds With weak in the knees romance sexual chemistry a go go and as sumptuous as eually accurate The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty descriptions of holiday traditions His Mistletoe Bride will bring the winter temperatures up a notch or two A wonderfully romantic tale great for the holidays or any time of year Taken from my review at RomanceJunkiescomGrowing up in a uaker household Phoebe Linville s one joy was the bedtime stories her mother told her of the fairies and sprites that roamed the green and gentle land of the old country Her mother had been estranged from her English relatives after marrying a uaker and moving to America but she took comfort in telling the stories and Phoebe s father had understood his wife s need So grown up now and assured of her grandfather s welcome Phoebe set sail for England She had never met her grandfather but after years of silence he had finally acknowledged her in his letters to her With both parents gone now Phoebe accepted the invitation but she knew she would miss her young Blame It On The MistletoeWhen Major Lucas Stanton inherited his earldom he neverreamed his property would include the previous earl’s granddaughter Phoebe Linville is a sparkling American beauty yes but with a talent for getting into trouble Witness the compromis.
