A cute novella for the holidays and a fast read. The story is fairly predictable and the hero, Will, and heroine, Violet, are stereotypical characters, a broke English lord and an American heiress. It all feels a little rushed.
If this had been fleshed out into a full novel, I think I would have liked it more. Still, it was an amusing read. ( )

First Thought when Finished: An Heiress For All Seasons by Sophie Jordan was a great Christmas Novella. I would have liked more story and character building (I always do with novellas) but felt overall that this was a good read to get you in the holiday spirit!

England

Violet Howard is feisty and independent and she is also an American heiress who is determined to never wed a crusty British Aristocrat. Will is the Earl of Merlton who is determined to save his family and salvages the family fortune without having to have a marriage of convenience.

Suddenly a snow storm leaves Violet and Will alone and stranded. It also brings out the chemistry they feel for each other and that will challenge all their good intentions. When their desires end up burning too hot they end up tossing their reservations aside in favor of the heat they find in each other’s arms.

Now a holiday blizzard has brought them together and it also threatens their reputations. It also just might cost them their hearts in the process. Now they have to decide if their passion will survive past the storm. They also have to decide if the love they have found together is enough to last them through all seasons.

This is a great novella that is sure to put readers into the spirit of the holidays. It is at a length that is sure to give readers a much needed break during their holiday preparations. For such a short story it packs a lot of heart and warmth in just a few pages. This is one book that will prove to be a favorite to read especially at the holiday seasons. The characters are well written and carry the story very well. This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone though it will have readers wanting to read the first book in the series. ( )
