Release day: A Match Made in Mistletoe
Today is the official release of A Match Made in Mistletoe by Anna Campbell (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
A mistletoe wish…
All her life, Serena Talbot has been in love with the handsome boy next door, Sir Paul Garside. She always eagerly looks forward to Paul’s visit to her family over the Festive Season, even if he usually brings along his dark, sardonic friend Lord Hallam. This year, Serena is determined that Paul’s kiss under the mistletoe will lead to a proposal. Even if she has to enlist every ounce of Christmas magic she can get her hands on to make that happen.
But the mistletoe gets it wrong!
When Serena slips a sprig of mistletoe from the village kissing bough under her pillow, it’s not Paul who turns up in her dreams as the man she’s going to marry, but brooding, intense, annoying Giles Farraday, Marquess of Hallam. Still more annoying, once everyone arrives for the annual Christmas house party, she can’t stop watching Giles, and thinking about Giles. And kissing Giles, whether there’s mistletoe about or not. Now Paul wants to marry her, and Giles wants to seduce her–and Serena has a bone to pick with the old wives who came up with all this superstitious nonsense in the first place.
A Christmas of confusion lies ahead! Will mistletoe magic lead the way to a happy ending?
Anna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I always love writing my annual Christmas novella—there’s something about Regency wit and scandal and mayhem that really works at this time of year, even if we’re sweltering in an Australian summer. In 2016, I’ve gone wild and written two Christmas novellas, Mistletoe and the Major in the Under the Kissing Bough anthology, and this one, A Match Made in Mistletoe. MATM is an emotional story about a man returning from war to the wife he loves but who he’s not sure loves him. A Match Made in Mistletoe is an out-and-out romp about a girl who has spent her life pining after the handsome boy next door but who, this Christmas when at last he looks like he might return her interest, discovers that perhaps his friend is the man for her. As you can imagine, trouble ensues! Trouble = fun at Christmas time, at least in Romancelandia! Happy reading, and wishing you all the best of the festive season!
