Review of A Kiss At Christmastide by Christina McKnight



This is the first book that I have read by Christina McKnight and it certainly won't be the last.  This was a lovely story of a young lady who has nothing but goodness and love in her heart and a young man who has not known any kind of love since he was a very young boy.

Pippa is the beloved daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Midcrest and is at their country home waiting for her parents to arrive so they can begin celebrating the Christmas Holiday like they do every year. Unfortunately it looks like the storm that is raging outside will delay the arrival of her parents.  She is alone in the house with just the servants when someone starts banging on the front door.

Lucas Hartfeld, the Earl of Maddox is on his way to meet his parents at a house party when a storm hits and his carriage gets stuck in the mud.  He has to walk to the nearest home and ask for shelter until the story blows over.

Pippa and Lucas are stuck together until the storm blows over.  He is rude and condescending, but Pippa sees something in his eyes that draws her in.  She has grown up in a loving family and he hasn't seen his parents since he was sent away to school at the age of seven.  His parents blamed him for a family tragedy that has made him the man he is today.

Can two people who are nothing alike find peace and happiness at this special time of year?  This is truly a wonderful novella that I read all the way through last night.  I could not put it down.  Pippa and Lucas are terrific characters and the plot is emotionally fulfilling.  I have to admit that I shed a few tears while reading this awesome novella.

If you have not read Christina's books, go to your favorite book seller and buy this one.  It will be the best 99 cents you spent!!
