The Conundrum of a Clerk by Linda Rae Sande

Genre Regency romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Things are not always as they seem;
the first appearance deceives many.
— Phaedrus
When widower and bank clerk Theodore Streater discovers his late mother was not only the headmistress of Warwick’s Grammar and Finishing School, but also its owner, he’s in need of someone to run the rather lucrative enterprise. He turns to the woman who helped him regain his position at the bank after he lost an arm fighting in Belgium. His best friend’s wife, Elizabeth Bennett-Jones, Viscountess Bostwick, still runs her charity, Finding Work for the Wounded. She is sure there’s an applicant who would be perfect as headmistress of her old school.
Having lost her position as an operative with the Home Office—her slight limp from a gunshot wound is hard to hide—Daisy Albright is at a loss as to what to do next. She could return to her father’s home. The Duke of Ariley would like nothing more than to have his oldest illegitimate daughter under his protection until a suitable marriage can be arranged. But after several years of handling her own affairs away from the aristocracy, Daisy is determined to retain her independence.
So when Viscountess Bostwick informs her she has a position in mind, Daisy immediately pays a call on the new owner of Warwick’s to apply. Poor Teddy Streater has no idea what he’s in for when he hires the ex-spy to run the finishing school. He would prefer to court the comely lady who seems prim and proper, but what woman wants to marry a man with only one arm? Perhaps he should be in search of a mistress. Trouble is, he can only imagine Miss Albright in the role in The Conundrum of a Clerk.

Sarah Laughlin left her big-city life and dead-end relationship behind for a fresh start as a fourth-grade teacher in the small, Wisconsin town of Meadow Creek.

Lincoln loves his home town of Meadow Creek, but ever since his long-time girlfriend left him for a better life in the city, he wonders if he’ll ever find love in this small town where everyone knows everyone. Then he meets Sarah during her class’s field trip to his firehouse, and a spark is lit. But when they discover that Sarah’s troublemaking student is none other than Lincoln’s beloved nephew, their newfound relationship is put to the test. Can they navigate through the complexities of family dynamics to find a love that will last?

Once Upon a Christmas Feast: Stories, Menus, and Recipes for a Victorian Christmas Feast (Once Upon a Wedding) by Kelly McClymer

Have you ever wanted to attend a Victorian Christmas celebration? Well now you can, in Once Upon a Christmas Feast you not only get an original story, but menus, recipes, favorite Victorian Christmas stories and songs.
What’s in this jam-packed Victorian Christmas celebration of a tome?
First: an original Once Upon a Wedding short story. “Once Upon a Fairytale Christmas.”
The Duchess of Keystone is an unconventional woman who loves fairytales and happily ever after endings. When it comes to Christmas, she loves nothing better than to have her family gathered at her estate enjoying Christmas joy, food, games, and entertainment.
This year, her niece Margause arrives to view the wonder of a fairytale Christmas celebration. At three, Margause loves to slip into the library of the ducal estate, where her parents fell in love, and peruse the books she hopes to read one day soon.
Observant and advanced for her age, Margause notices that her aunts and uncles are not as happy as they should be about her Aunt Kate’s upcoming Twelfth Night wedding to a handsome, charming Irish rogue. She also doesn’t understand why her mother’s former governess Katherine tries so hard to cheer up Scroogish Sir Robert. It seems obvious to Margause that Sir Robert would need Mr. Dicken’s three ghosts to make him feel any Christmas joy.
But then, what else does the Duchess of Keystone offer everyone, but a chance at a fairytale Christmas, where miracles happen around every corner.
Next: An Appendix of traditional Victorian Christmas stories and essays by Charles Dickens…what? You didn’t know “A Christmas Carol” wasn’t his only Christmas story? Nope. Dickens, along with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, are actually responsible for making Christmas the holiday we celebrate today. You’ll also find it handy to have the lyrics to several Christmas favorite songs, so you can make sure to lead your family in rounds of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” without messing up the lyrics.
All in all, Once Upon a Christmas Feast is your guide to celebrating a very Victorian Christmas.

The Christmas of a Countess by Linda Rae Sande

A sensual tale of a couple’s first holiday away from home…
The Year with No Summer is drawing to a close, bleeding into a harsh winter that promises snow, ice and continued hardship. London, so rich with life and bustle, is quiet beneath the ice, buried in a cold few can ever truly recall happening before. Many of the ton are taking their leave for the Christmas holiday, abandoning the soggy streets of London for even chillier country roads.
Milton Grandby, Earl of Torrington, believes that now is the perfect time to introduce his new bride, Adele, to his ancestral hunting lodge and seat of his Earldom in Northumberland. A private getaway nestled in glistening snow can lead to all sorts of enjoyment… and hopefully, an heir.
With excitement in the air and Christmas fast approaching, the newlyweds make plans to travel north. While no family will be invited to the Torrington lodge, the Earl will bring his valet, Alonyius Banks, and Adele will be accompanied by Alice Simpkins, her rather grumpy lady’s maid.
Yet when The Lord and His Lady arrive at Torrington Park sans their servants, things take a decided turn and quickly become intimately awkward. While Milton is more than happy to play lady’s maid to his bride, the close confines and frigid air bring secrets to the front—and mistrust to the surface. As the duo learns more about each other’s pasts, they discover struggles and misunderstandings abound.
Can they look beyond their flaws and allow the spirit of the season and the gift of giving to thaw the sudden ice between them? Or will their first holiday away doom their new-found devotion? The budding romance of their servants may provide the answer in “The Christmas of a Countess”.

Christmastime on Donner’s Mountain by Laura Strickland

For most of her life, Becca Monroe’s been running. The urge to see what lay beyond the next horizon took her away from Donner’s Mountain and the man she loved. Now, back for what will surely be her grandfather’s last Christmas, she’s caught in a tangle of unresolved emotions that leave her torn between the impulse to flee and the desire to stay.
Jack Donner never stopped loving Becca, even though she deserted him. Better than anyone else, he knows how cruel it would be to fetter her wild spirit, and he doubts she could ever be happy living in one place, on his mountain.
Can memories of Christmases past remind Becca what truly matters? And can love convince Jack to give her one more chance, even if it means risking his battered heart?

Northern Magic by Laura Strickland

When Santa asks his worker, Olja, to help make another elf’s Christmas wish come true, she believes the job calls for a love potion. Brewing it up will require her to travel all around the North Pole gathering unusual supplies, and to take a few dangerous risks. But she’s never failed Santa in the past and doesn’t intend to now.
Elf Runi’s in the business of guiding Santa’s sleigh and making other people’s wishes come true. This year he’s dared make a wish of his own, one from the heart. When he meets Olja, he hopes he’s found his forever. But it will take assistance from a reindeer, a generous helping of love and a whole lot of magic to make his wish come true. That is, if Olja and Runi can just outwit the three troublesome trolls who decide they’d make a fine winter’s snack.

The Twelfth Night Wager by Regan Walker

The Redheaded Rake
It was a dull day at White’s the day he agreed to the wager: seduce, bed and walk away from the lovely Lady Leisterfield, all by Twelfth Night. But this holiday season, Christopher St. Ives, Viscount Eustace, planned to give himself a gift.
The Virtuous Widow
She was too proper by half—or so was the accusation of her friends, which was why her father had found her a husband. But Lord Leisterfield was now gone a year, and Grace was at last shedding the drab colors of mourning. The house felt empty, more so during the coming Christmastide, and so tonight would begin with a scandalous piece of theater. The play would attract rogues, or so promised her friend the dowager countess. Rogues, indeed. The night would preface the greatest danger—and the greatest happiness—that Grace had ever known.

The Diamond Gate by Holly Bargo

Every night for two years, seven sisters—princesses all—walked beneath silver trees hung with jeweled fruit, crossed a still black lake, and danced to liquid music with their faerie suitors. Every night for two years, their shoes collapsed and kept the city’s cobblers busy.
His schemes for political and trade alliances thwarted by his daughters’ nightly disappearances, the royal duke of Nuygenie invited royalty and aristocrats from far and wide to solve the mystery and win the hand of a princess. They came and they failed.
Then a common soldier, aged by war and years, thought to try his luck and improve his circumstances. A kindness to an old hag resulted in a magic cloak of invisibility and excellent advice that he put to good use to break the enchantment that held the princesses in thrall to their fey suitors.
Rejoicing, the duke elevated the soldier to serve as his general, so that the man might have rank befitting his royal bride. General Miles Carrow chose the eldest sister, Aurora, and wondered at the emptiness of their betrothal. The duke then cemented other political and trade alliances with the blood of his other children: Crown Prince Eric, Prince Ascendant Jonathan, Princesses Rose, Pearl, Celeste, Grace, Lily, and Hope. The two youngest princes, Roderick and Simon, were yet too young to be married off as benefited Nuygenie.
The passage beneath was blocked and sealed with iron. The sisters did not discuss all they had lost. No one ever asked them if they had even wanted to be rescued.
This is the story after the faerie tale.

Dangerous Addictions by Naomi BellinaRead Dangerous Addictions by Naomi Bellina #FreeBookFriday #Read

With the aid of an inexplicable but opportune super-power, he’s determined to conquer any hurdles to gain back his freedom. Except one hot mess of an obstacle he can’t get around.
A terrorist attack poisons the water and leaves hundreds of thousands of Americans dead. Countless more are left with diminished brain function. As the government seizes control, order is restored in the country but freedom is taken away. A nation is quarantined, all citizens regulated to stay within the borders.
For Riley, a genius hacker, that lack of freedom, particularly travel restriction, is not acceptable. When he suddenly develops a bad-ass power and learns he can manipulate electricity, he sets out to use that power to gain back control. The discovery of a murder forces Riley to team up with Danika, an enigmatic woman with her own freaky power and scary secrets. When they find that the dead scientist was working on a machine to uncover more people with superpowers, the adventure begins as they attempt to track the device.
Death and danger shadow the pair as they travel to the waterways of Florida, the mountains of Colorado and places in between. With each of them following their own agenda but compelled to work together, they search for answers in a world shaped by devastation, and discover love, and buried pieces of themselves along the way.
