A Match Made in Mistletoe by Anna Campbell

Magic always happens when there is mistletoe.

Serena Talbot knows what and who she wants. In days all her dreams will come true until she dreams about another man. Serena has been in love with Paul Garside all her life. Her brother’s friend has been coming to the Torver House since she was a child and she followed them around. Everyone was aware of her infatuation with Paul and were willing to smile, and figuratively pat her on the head, for the attraction. Then comes the time when he has arrived at the hall and is ready to propose.

As some young girls are want do, they use spells to learn who their future love will be. Serena does the same thing but discovers her dream lover is another man who she knows but had never thought of in that way. Somehow Serena finds herself asking Giles to teach her to kiss. Giles kisses her, but Paul interrupts.

Giles Farraday, Lord Hallam, has been in love with Serena for a long time. His parents died when he was young and he was accepted into the Talbot family as Frederick’s friend and almost as a member of the family. Given those circumstances, he feels bad that he is kissing the youngest daughter, but can’t get enough of Serena. So when she wants to practise her kissing more, he cannot refuse her but his conscience does get the better of him. There is then a fight.

When Paul finally proposes, Serena refuses him, and he gets that Serena may prefer his friend Giles, and does step aside, somewhat graciously. Giles then runs to Serena.

This is a love triangle. Serena has loved Paul since she was young. Giles has loved Serena since he first met her. Paul assumed Serena would marry him. The triangle does become a duet when all the issues are sorted and quite graciously in fact. Another good read from Ms Campbell.
