Introducing Her Christmas Earl!

by Anna Campbell

It's that time of year again!

The time of year when we writers go all misty-eyed and sentimental and jolly and start penning Christmas romances.

This is the third year in a row that I've done a Christmas novella. My first was THE WINTER WIFE which was a reunion story set on the snowy Yorkshire Moors. My second was "His Christmas Cinderella" which was an ultra-romantic addition to the free anthology A GROSVENOR SQUARE CHRISTMAS.

This year I'm writing a marriage of convenience story featuring a rake ripe for redemption and the straight-talking unfashionable woman he finds himself married to as a result of bad luck and scandal (except as in all good romances, the bad luck is actually very good luck in disguise).


No good deed goes unpunished…

To save her hen-witted sister from scandal, Philippa Sanders ventures into a rake's bedroom - and into his power. Now her reputation hangs by a thread and only a hurried marriage can rescue her. Is the Earl of Erskine the heartless libertine the world believes? Or will Philippa discover unexpected honor in a man notorious for his wild ways?

Blair Hume, the dissolute Earl of Erskine, has had his eye on the intriguing Miss Sanders since he arrived at this deadly dull house party. Now a reckless act delivers this beguiling woman into his hands as a delightful Christmas gift. Does fate offer him a fleeting Yuletide diversion? Or will this Christmas Eve encounter spark a passion to last a lifetime?

There's something lovely about writing a Christmas romance. It's a time of hope and family and love and generosity, and all of those qualities feed into a feel-good love story. I really enjoyed meeting clever, direct Philippa Sanders and her dashing, handsome, disreputable Christmas Earl, Blair Hume. I hope you feel the same! 

So are you a fan of romances set around Christmas time? Any favorites?

Denise, Christmas seems made for romance stories, doesn't it? Thanks for swinging by!

I enjoy a Christmas story too, Anna. I really liked your previous Christmas novellas and I loved Her Christmas Earl. It is such a good "cute meet" scenario and the characters are delightful. The way you wrote it made the falling in love scenario quite believable over the shorter read of a novella. A sensual, feel good romance!

Kandy, I think because of the short span, novellas tend to favour reunion stories. It was fun doing one that included a first meet - so glad you enjoyed that! Thanks for swinging by and saying how much you like my Christmas stories. I enjoy writing them.

I love Christmas themed books.
Every year Debbie Macomber puts one out. Lately Linda Lael Miller does too.

Favorite Curtiss Matloch's Miracle On I-40

Your book with Christmas and MOC.... YES!
