When an author takes a character from a previous book, who is hateful and pretentious and then transforms her into a loveable heroine with such finesse, this is a story worth reading from an author who should be on your must read list. Such is the case with TO WED HIS CHRISTMAS LADY by Christi Caldwell.

As the story begins, Lady Cara Falcot awaits at her finishing school for her father's carriage to retrieve her on the cusp of the Christmas holidays. But that carriage never comes and the lady who

This is a nice Christmas novella and I enjoyed it very much. The hero, Will, is returning home after years of traveling to wed Lady Clarisse, the daughter of his mother's best friend. He remembers her as a difficult child and is not too happy about his parents pushing this marriage on him. He uses a snowstorm as a delay and stays at a nearby inn.

Clarisse, who sometimes uses her mother's pet name Cara, is stuck at finishing school as her father, a Duke, forgot to send a carriage for her. She borr

This was a really cute book. One reviewer said Will was an ass in the beginning, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Cara was the ass for almost the entire book. He was only calling her out in the beginning because she was being impossibly rude and unfeeling. But all-in-all it was a good story and I couldn’t help but like both of them.

They were snowed-in at the Fox and Hare and in 3 days’ time they fell in love.

No sex but lots of desire, and that was fine with me. Nothing worse than sex

So you know as soon as I saw that Christi Caldwell was releasing another book, I am all over that in a heartbeat…especially when it’s a Christmas Story. To make it even better the heroine in this book is called Cara!!!
Lady Clarisse Falcot (but prefers to be called Cara) feels like the most hated women in the world! She is defiantly is the most hated girl in the finishing school her overbearing father has sent her too! But now it’s the Christmas Holidays and the school is closing for the break, b
It was long-winded for a whirlwind romance.

William was an ass in the beginning. A true gentleman wouldn't speak like that to any woman, and in public no less.

There was an incongruity in chapter 2. If Cara's mother died when she was 7 years old, how can she have memories of her mother at 13?

What was Cara's purpose for destroying the carriage? When all she decided was to go back to the finishing school instead to her father's estate. She could simply instruct the driver to bring her to the school
Would have been better as a full length I wanted more!!!

I really liked the premise of this book and it was begging to be drawn out and have more tension and excitement but it ended up being super breezy sweet and easy. No steam in this one either.
Finally! A heroine unlike the others 3.5 stars

A couple of days ago I read and reviewed a New York Time and USA Today contemporary romance that had shoddy and haphazard character development, but paired it with inferno sex scenes. In one months time it has over seven hundred reviews on Amazon. I am still perplexed that a book could make a bestseller list with such an inconsistent story.  Then I pick up Christi Caldwell's To Wed His Christmas Lady and am blown away by the solid character development,  and the fully formed story, and this is a ...more

The Ice Princess – that’s how she’s known. Cold, unemotional, cruel all words used to describe Lady Clarissa Falcot. Born a daughter of a Duke her only purpose is to further his connections (& she has already been promised to a stuffy, self-absorbed son of a Duke) & he has raised her to scorn anyone beneath her station. Since the death of her mother that is the only way she knows how to act. Besides – being the ice princess allows her to protect herself from being hurt. Or so she’d like to think ...more

This is my first Christi Caldwell book and it won't be my last. I have to admit that at first I thought I was not going to like the book. It moved slow and I lost interest, but the more I read I got intrigued. Then of course when I should be in bed I got sucked headlong into it and could NOT put it down. I love a good Christmas romance they are usually light and cheerful stories. Will and Cara's story however had some lighter moments but at the heart of it was gut wrenching emotional story o

To Wed His Christmas Lady by Christi Caldwell is a wonderful read. Will and Cara's story is entertaining. Ms Caldwell has delivered a well written book with characters that may not start off as lovable but by the end of the book you love them anyway. Along with the great characters, this book has drama and a bit of humor. To Wed His Christmas Lady is fairly short, perfect for those with limited time for reading. It is also a clean read, no sex scenes. I enjoyed this book and look forward to read ...more

Expect the Unexpected

William is a carefree, fun loving man who wants love like his parents have.

Cara is sheltered and determined not to show her pain to the world.

The sadness the Heroine carries had me in tears. The author does a FANTASTIC job at making the reader feel the emotions of this story. Every written word drew forth feelings of pain, love and laughter with in. I love a book that i can get lost in and this one did just that

I thought this was a very entertaining read. Will and Cara both had secrets which added so much to their "love at first sight" meeting at an inn while stranded during a snow storm. I loved Will from the beginning but it took a while for Cara to win me over.

I enjoyed this Christmas story with some adventures, bantering, love and romance. I highly recommend this book and this whole series.

This is a tender Christmas tale of a woman who became an ice princess to protect herself from feelings. Her bad behavior is called out by a stranger who makes her question how she has lived for the past decade. They are stranded in the same inn during a blizzard, giving them time to get to know each other. It's a quick read that's sweet.

To Wed His Christmas Lady

As always Ms. Caldwell did not fail in delivering a story that showed that love conquers all. How a hero can rescue his heroine by seeing beyond the surface and helping her to find her true self even after society and her family see only ice and ugliness. He sees who she truly is and loves her for it. Helping her to change into a better self!
Love, love, love

The only thing missing?
A proper ending.
Our heroine was pretty mean to several people her whole life but she doesn't really apologize to those she should in the end. Would have loved to see that because she intended to do so, at least that's what she hinted at.

Anyways, great plot, shows us what misconceptions, what pride, what prejudice may lead to.
Lovely main characters. No intimate relations (except for kissss) before they promise themselves to each other.

Another excellent romance by Christi Caldwell. Ms. Caldwell never disappoints and even made an unlikable heroine quite likable by the end of the book.

A lovely, enjoyable story. Two characters who have never met, and are dreading their arranged marriage to each other, meet and fall in love without knowing who they actually are to each other.

I absolutely loved this story. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Ms. Caldwell has created another emotionally beautiful story of self-discovery and opening one self to a life changing love.

The story centers on Cara (aka Lady Clarisse) has not known love or acceptance since her mother died at 7. She has built a wall around herself and her hurt to keep from getting hurt, but deep down she wishes for one to climb her walls and love her for who she is.

Cara is now my favorite heroine that Christ

Every time Christi Caldwell puts her fingers on the keyboard, characters crystallize and fall into line, some with tiny breaks, some with inclusions, some sparkling clear like diamonds, some the rare, rich colors of rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, but all with some delicate flaw that make them human. The characters in this little jewel are vintage Christi Caldwell, with pain driving their actions, and the actions of each driving the other, until a final rush

Emotional, sweet, emotional and romantic. A perfect Historical Holiday read. I absolutely LOVED and adored, Will. William James Alexander Winchester Hargrove, Marquess of Grafton. Le Sigh. Swoon. He is my new favorite book hero. He was the absolute perfect Hero for Lady Clarisse Falcot, Cara. I liked the fact that in this book the Hero is the happy, positive one, who came from a good loving family, and Cara is the one who comes off as cold. Until you understand why. Usually it's the HERO that is ...more
