Enjoyed this historical holiday novella where the heroine was strong and feisty yet sweet and loving. I admire this type of heroine: where despite the acceptable conventions of the period, they live life on their own terms. Lilian manages to teach a stern and grumpy Seth hat it's like to play and just have fun. At first, he's not the most likeable of heroes but as he performed little acts that allowed me to see there's some dimension to him, he definitely grew on me. Though short, the story was ...more

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 a

'Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis' by Amelia Grey is book 3.5 in "The Heirs' Club of Scoundrels" Trilogy. This is the story of Lillian and Seth. This can easily be a standalone book if you haven't read the other books in this series. Also know that this is a Novella and has about 90 pages. Seth has taken on his two nephews after their parents died. Seth loves them but seems to be really strict with them and their health.

A delightful little novella celebrating falling in love at Christmas. I loved the leads, Lillian and her spunkiness, and Seth and his seriousness - they were perfect for each other. I especially loved Seth during the Christmas meal when he decides to show that he can be playful. It's not often you see (read about) a marquis throwing peas at someone during dinner and hoping no one sees him doing it!
His proposal to Lillian was very special in my mind - I thought it showed how thoughtful he could b

A cute xmas novella is always nice, and I like Grey's books. They are sweet.

Here we have Lillian and Seth. And yes at first they do not really seem like a match. He is so busy protecting his nephews that he forgets they need to live too. And she is all boys should play! But they really fancy each other too. But the arguments they would have!

So yes they meet at a house party, flirt (and yes things must move fast, it is just over xmas after all). She is the Duke's sister in law, he should know bet

3 Holiday-filled stars.

Being a fan of Amelia Grey's The Heirs' Club of Scoundrels series, I was eager to read this holiday novella. On the pages, there is everything you expect: a holiday house party, featuring kids and matchmaking, giving a glimpse of past narrators readers love. Being that it was a shorter novella, the romance was the sole focus without major buildup.

Infatuation at first sight.

‘Tis the season for sugary-sweet holiday stories on my e-reader. Author Amelia Grey brings that Christmas spirit into her novella Mistletoe, Mischief and the Marquis with cute kids, a snowy setting and a yuletide gathering of friends. I would have to be a Grinch not to enjoy this kind of story; however a few missteps keep it from being a holiday classic.

Mistletoe, Mischief and the Marquis is book 3.5, a novella, in 'The Heirs' Club of Scoundrels' series by Amelia Grey.

It is the story about Seth, the Marquis of Wythebury. He has taken on the care of his two small nephews since their parents died. He's doing a good job with them, but is very over protective of them. Something that he is soon told in no uncertain terms when he attends a house party and meets Miss Lillian Prim.

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis is a fun and quick short story of Regency England, Christmastide, families, and love. Seth Wythebury, Marquis of Wythebury, has brought his two young nephews with him to a friend's home for the Christmas holidays. His nephews are recently orphaned and now under his guardianship, but Seth knows nothing about children and isn't quite sure what to do with them. He believes they'd be better studying all the time indoors. Miss Lillian Prim, sister-in-law to Seth's ...more

A short novella set in the world of the Heirs’ Club is the focus of this story, with a rather outspoken and immature heroine doing her best to shake up Seth’s world.

Guardian of his nephews who lost both parents and governess to illness after exposure to the cold, Seth is hypervigilant that the boys (ages 5 and 7) are not exposed to such dangers. But, the house party brings him face to face (and snowball) with Lillian, as she is playing with the boys outside. The interplay between the two, full

I have always had Amelia Grey on my radar and what better time time to try a new-to-me author than at Christmas? MISTLETOE, MISCHIEF, and the MARQUIS is a breezy and happy novella full of love and Christmas spirit.

I smiled, I felt, I enjoyed and I was thoroughly engaged in reading this delightful holiday romance. Though less than one hundred pages the story was perfection. And, when I had read the last word I was not ready to leave the characters behind. In fact, I now want to find the other books in the series and read each and every one of them!

I was totally charmed by this novella!

Lillian and Seth are incredibly likable leads and are easily my favorite couple in the series.

Seth is raising his late sister's orphaned boys. He takes the responsibility seriously and due to the sudden death of his sister and brother-in-law tends to be a bit over protective.

This was a fun read for the holidays. The author has captured the regency ear of the season for those who want a feel good story. I liked the characters who were well developed with thought and feelings of their own. It was a perfect novel for a winters night of light entertainment.
You have a man who doesn't know the first thing about children. Seth, the Marquis of Wythebury has been taking care of two small boys since their parents died. He is very strict and is very protective of his charges.

I really like reading Amelia's books! I grab every one I can find.She writes good story lines and gives us some real characters. This story is set just before Christmas. Seth is still getting over the deaths of his sister and her husband. Spoiler. He now has the care of his two nephews, Fallon and Heron. Spoiler. He comes across Lillian playing with the boys outside in the snow. Seth blows up and yells at her because they were outside. He finds himself falling for her but while she wants him she ...more
This was a pretty quick and sweet read. It’s definitely about the opposites attract and who doesn’t love a holiday house party? Seth is a bit on the serious side, wanting to take care of his little nephews after their parent dies. Lillian is cheerful and wants the boys to have fun. Despite some clashing, there’s an undeniable attraction between the two of them. There is some angst but the grand gesture at the end was so adorable, I very much enjoyed that part!

A wonderful Christmas story but much too short. I read it while on my way to work and back home and was disappointed that I already finished it because I really enjoyed the play between those two leads a lot. And Seth isnt this standard character, there is depth and some fun with him and Liliane is just cute ... my fav scene was the one when they had a snowball fight. Adorable!

While he loves the boys, and is kind to them, the circumstances of their parents' death has made Seth very over protective.

Seth has become the guardian for his two nephews after the death of his sister and her husband. Seth is a gentleman who wants to make certain that his nephews are raised to be successful and serious adults.

Then he sees the two boys running around in the snow, and must rush out to bring them back inside.

That is when he meets Lillian. She is a young lady who has been playing in the snow with the boys. The fact she is a crack shot with a snow ball makes Seth curious about who this young woman is.

I found this book on NetGally and received an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review. And, honestly, I liked it.

I have not read any other books by Amelia Grey. While this story is part of a series, it works well as a stand-alone novella, too. For me, I liked that it was set at Christmastime and the cover is lovely. The blurb sounded fun, so it seemed like something I would enjoy – and it was.

I liked that it was familiar, but in a new combination. For example: It is set at a house

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis is a cute Christmas novella about opposites attracting and learning to compromise. Seth has acquired guardianship of his two young nephews after their parents unexpectedly die and he has become overly protective because of fear. He is also very studious and loves reading and learning, which he is trying to instill in his nephews. Lillian grew up in a carefree home filled with love and laughs.

A lovely story set at a Christmas house party, where Seth Wythebury finds himself to be the only bachelor and his host's sister-in-law, Lillian, the only young unmarried woman. The story starts on a subdued note, as Seth contemplates his situation with his nephews, who lost both mother and father just a year ago. It quickly turns amusing when he meets Miss Lillian Prim. Lillian is an outspoken young woman, who tries to make the little boys' stay more fun and cheerful. She and Seth do not always ...more

4.5 *

A perfect Christmas novella set in the Regency period finds Miss Lillian Prim hurling a snowball at the dashing Lord Wythebury; yes, this is how they met. Lord Seth Wythebury has been given charge of his two rambunctious nephews after the passing of his sister. After their initial snowy meeting Miss Prim agrees to act as governess for the two young lads. Seth finally feels like he has met his match in the headstrong Lillian Prim but will that be enough to capture his heart for a lifetime?

I think if you are looking for a sweet Christmas novella Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis would be right up your alleyway. I think I was just looking for something with a little bit more depth to it. I did enjoy the fun moments between Seth and Lillian such as the snowball fight and I do think that they are pairing that was meant to be together. I just wish there had been more build up and not so much forced tension to their relationship.
