Summary

From four beloved writers--Eloisa James, Christi Caldwell, Janna MacGregor, and Erica Ridley--come four original stories that tell a hilarious tale of a Christmas house party that serves up love and scandal in equal measure!

The Duke of Greystoke's Christmas Revelry is famous throughout the British Isles for its plays, dancing, magical grotto... not to mention scandals leading to the marriage licenses he hands out like confetti.

But not everyone welcomes a visit from Cupid.

Lady Cressida, the duke's daughter, is too busy managing the entertainments--and besides, her own father has called her dowdy. Her cousin, Lady Isabelle Wilkshire, is directing Cinderella and has no interest in marriage. Lady Caroline Whitmore is already (unhappily) married; the fact that she and her estranged husband have to pretend to be together just makes her dread the party all the more. But not as much as Miss Louisa Harcourt, whose mother bluntly tells her that this is her last chance to escape the horrors of being an old maid.

A house party so large that mothers lose track of their charges leads to a delightful, seductive quartet of stories that you will savor for the Season!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There is plenty of kissing under the mistletoe in this festive quartet of love stories set at the Duke of Greystoke's Christmas Revelry. In Eloisa James' elegant and sexy "A Mistletoe Christmas," the duke's daughter, Lady Cressida, is done coordinating her father's holiday parties. Is an offer of marriage from Lord Darcy de Royleston her way out? In Christi Caldwell's shimmeringly sensual "Wishing under the Mistletoe," Lady Isabelle Wilkshire hopes to finally convince her former fiancé that there is more to life than making money. Lady Caroline Whitmore needs her estranged husband, Stephen, to pretend they are a happy couple in order to persuade her uncle to release the money from her trust in Janna MacGregor's clever and heart-meltingly romantic "Compromise under the Mistletoe." Erica Ridley's "Mischief and Mistletoe" twinkles with cheeky charm as Louisa Harcourt's plan to please her mother by marrying a nobleman hits a snag in the form of fellow poet Ewan Reid."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lost loves and first loves come together in this delightfully festive quartet of Regency romances, all brimming with holiday spice and mistletoe mischief. Set against the Duke of Greystoke's 1815 Christmastide Revelry, each story features strong, mid-20s heroines paired with--and pitted against--equally fascinating male counterparts. James's opener, "A Mistletoe Kiss," sets the tone and utterly charms, following Lady Cressida, Greystoke's youngest daughter and the secret mastermind behind the Revelry, as she trips into love against her father's wishes. Unconventional Lady Isabelle gets a chance to shine as a playwright--but to do so she must work with a lost love in Christi Caldwell's "Wishing Under the Mistletoe." "Compromise Under the Mistletoe" by Janna MacGregor offers a quaint glimpse into the lives of a married couple whose relationship is on the rocks. Erica Ridley's closing tale, "Mischief & Mistletoe," hinges on the art of deception as poet Louisa, under pressure to marry soon, searches for a mate who understands her. While lighthearted, each story brings a certain gravitas in highlighting the artistic talents of the heroines. This Christmas confection will be a treat for Regency romance fans. Agent: (for James, Caldwell, and MacGregor) Kim Witherspoon, InkWell Management, (for Ridley) Lauren E. Abramo, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Oct.)"
