Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquiss- by Amelia Grey- Feature and Review


The Marquis of Wythebury, is expecting an ordinary Christmastide at Hurst—until he is set upon by a beautiful miss who takes him to task for not allowing his young nephews to play outside. In his mind, a five and seven year old needn’t get chilled in the snow; better to plop them in front of the fire with a book. Few people have ever been brave enough to challenge him over anything, much less the rearing of his wards. The cheeky Miss Prim has no such compunction. No matter how fetching he finds her, he can’t give in to his attractionfor she is the sister of his best friend.

Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about him kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis by Amelia Grey is a 2016 Swerve publication.

A sweet and fun holiday romance!

The title says it all. Lillian is fun and mischievous and Seth is studious and serious. When they meet at a house party, Lillian chides Seth for being too hard on his nephews and issues him a challenge, which gives her the chance to give the boys a break from all that studying they are required to do.

In the process, the two opposites discover they attract, as they tease and flirt and engage in the most delightful banter. However, despite her having fallen in love with Seth, their differences do not make them a good match…. At least in Lillian’s opinion. Can Seth change her mind?

This is a cute novella, featuring two headstrong characters who learn to compromise to make their relationship work. I love an unconventional heroine and appreciated Lillian’s upbeat positivity. She is really good for Seth and his nephews.

Seeing Seth loosen up and have a little fun was wonderful, and provided me with a few smiles. I love it when a guy rises to the occasion to win a lady’s heart and Seth’s grand gestures are very sweet and romantic.

Overall, this story really cheered me up and lightened my mood, so I can easily recommend it to everyone.
