A Lord’s fortune is forever changed with a kiss on Christmas from a daring young woman...

Finn, Viscount Edgerton, has avoided the London scene to focus solely on digging out from under the pile of debt his father left behind. A decent dowry could make things a hell of a lot easier for the estate, but he hasn’t met the right woman. And he never would have expected her to co

An embarrassing incident and time have helped "cure" Cece's unrequited love for Finn, Viscount Edgerton, but a common circle of friends brings them together again for a wedding.

When Finn learns that "Miss Mistletoe", as Cece was dubbed after the incident, will also attend his friend's wedding, he's less than thrilled, but the woman he meets is almost nothing like the one he remembers.

Cece is determined to be polite and civil, but avoid Finn as much as possible, something that he makes nearly imp

I really enjoyed this novella! Cece and Finn were adorable together and I loved the attention to the horticulture details. Who knew a conservatory could be sexy and make your heart sigh? :) The holiday details are just right. Erin Knightley is becoming one of my favorite authors (even without the steam!) as I just love her writing and it shines even in this shorter length. A perfect story to curl up with as it blends love, holiday traditions, family and it is sure to leave a smile on your face. ...more

This is a really sweet, traditional Regency Christmas story. Perfect for an afternoon curled up on the sofa. Loved it!

This is a good, short, and ultimately fun read.

Cece McCrea had one little mishap in her past with Finn, Viscount Edgerton, when she mistakenly kisses him on the lips under a mistletoe, forcibly, too, just as Finn was walking away from her. Now, her childhood crush has yet to forgive her for this embarrassment, and Cece is determined to avoid Finn at all costs.

The story was fast-paced and neatly set up how the kiss had affected both Cece and Finn in society. Both are in trepidation of the other

This was a cute, light-hearted nouvella that left me with a smile. I love how the hero Finn went from thinking he wants to avoid our heroine Cece to actively persuing her when she avoids him.

Yet there were some flaws. I really wish the dialogue between hero and heroine was more full of spark, wit and substance.

Knightley has our heroine spewing extensive botanical facts and latin names to impart that the heroine is intelligent. But being able to store a lot of knowledge doesn't automa

I couldn't let the season go without a Christmas regency and this one hit all the marks. Finn is attending a friend's wedding and hardly in the mood to be reminded of Cece, the young girl who had caused him so much embarrassment with a stolen, and very public kiss, years ago. He'd given no thought to her embarrassment. Cece never expected Finn to be at the wedding. She's lived with her public humiliation and the jokes for so long she's almost convinced herself she cares nothing for Finn any long ...more

A cute story with a minor Christmas theme (it starts and ends at a Christmas ball). I was a bit worried when I started this novella that I would not enjoy it, but I thought Finn was an honorable, romantic hero and I enjoyed reading scenes from his perspective.

There are a lot of references to conservatories and botany which added a fun, different flavor to the story.

The heroine was a bit wishy-washy for me and sent Finn a variety of mixed signals, but overall he persevered and he made the story w

What a delightful little read in between book one and two with two new characters. They pick up at Evie and Hastings' wedding and tell a story of her cousin Cece's infatuation with a friend of theirs Finn. Cece is adorable and loyal to her father and would deny herself happiness in order to care for her father. I'm glad it worked out for both Finn and Cece. Looking forward to book 2 coming out next month.

Pleasant tale to pass the time

This novella is part Knightley’s 'Sealed with a Kiss’ series. I didn’t realise this until I’d finished the book so you obviously don’t need to have read the first book (More Than a Stranger) to understand and like this one. This book does take place during the couple from the first book’s wedding but you see so little of them that if you’re reading this story in the hope of seeing more of them, I feel you’ll be disappointed. Richard (Cece’s cousin) appears in

As we are in the month of December, and this is the season to be jolly, I thought I would write a short and quick review on a wonderful regency romance novella by Erin Knightley; which is perfect for the Christmas season….Miss Mistletoe. This story is in between Knightley’s first book, More than a Stranger, and her new release, A Taste for Scandal. All three books are part of her Sealed With a Kiss series.

Miss Mistletoe was an enjoyable fun read. It is Christmas time, and Evie and Hastings, our

Very cute.

I loved the turn around on this story. Years ago Cece had a huge crush on Finn, which he did not return (she was just a young girl). She set-up so that she would be under the mistletoe to get a kiss from him, but she got it from her cousin instead. In a moment of madness she kisses Finn in front of everyone at the party and causes a slight scandal.

Since the decline in her father's sight she has been hidden away in the country helping him. Few years later... She comes to her cousin's h

Perfect for Christmas:) Erin Knightley makes me grin like a schoolgirl everytime I read her books!

This is an adorable story about a girl who had a crush and made a fool of herself trying to get his attention. She felt like she had to try no matter the outcome. I LOVED that about her. If you want something you need to go for it!

Years later when they cross paths again, she's determined to convince everyone (and herself) that she's over her childhood crush. Her indifference sparks our hero's curios

3.5 stars; A cute Christmas novella that jumps right into where More Than a Stranger's left off. It's Evie and Hastings' wedding but the story is about the Moore's cousin Cece McCrea and their friend Finn, the Viscount Edgerton.

Cece has been crushing on Finn for a long time, having gone to great lengths to get his attention (and resulting in an embarrassing moment which christened her with the name Miss Mistletoe) so when she finally decides she's over it, it's suddenly Finn's turn to try to

A few quick, informal thoughts on Erin Knightley's e-novella, which serves as a holiday-themed interlude in her Sealed with a Kiss series. Her writing continues to capture England's Regency era with whimsy and charm, and her characters are delightfully entertaining. Miss Mistletoe is a story without much conflict which, during the holiday season, is a very nice option to have. It was a great bit of fun to settle in and follow along as Finn and Cece fall unceremoniously (and ever so adorably) in ...more

Very sad...because I really really really like this author. I have met her, and she is awesome in person!! So it is with a heavy heart that i have to say.....SNORE!! I think I need a break from Historicals...horticulture....so over it! I liked both of the main characters and they had a meet-cute in the past. But i just never believed he "fell" for her during a wedding. Once again SOD gets in the way.
Few funny or snarky moments.

I really like this book series (Sealed with a Kiss). It's really entertaining, romantic, funny, and most importantly, CLEAN. I enjoy it when an author can write characters who have integrity and can make decisions not just based on their hormones.

This book is a good, quick read.
