A short and sweet Winter tale, A Winter’s Knight features snow, an unlikely hero and heroine and a little bit of holiday magic.
Perfect for squeezing in a quick read during the holiday rush, I found this delightful novella to be funny, aah-worthy cute, and generally very wholesome. Even in such a short span of words, Cole manages to give her characters enough challenges (especially the hero) to make them interesting, really earning the reward of love at the end.
Although the title might make you think its not a Regency (ie Knight), it is with empire waisted gowns and Assemblies a plenty–not to mention drafty manor houses and lots of solidiers returning from the Napoleanic Wars.
As we watch many solidiers coming home for the holidays (and think of those who are still deployed) this clean Regency romance reminds to be thankful for those brave men and women.
And I must confess, with all the hullabaloo of the holidays, it was nice to sink into another time–if only fleetingly–and I know, dear Regency Readers, you will appreciate A Winter’s Knight too!
4.75 out of 6, short and sweet this is not earth shatteringly original but is nonetheless comfortably well written with unique hero and heroine (no rakehell and diamond of the water here).
