3.5 yuletide stars!

While the employer/governess trope isn’t always my cup of tea, I rather enjoyed this particular take on it very much. I loved how it started off as a game of seduction for the hero, but as he got to know the heroine, really know her, their interactions slowly morphed into wooing and genuine courtship despite the aray of obstacles stacked against them. Eva Devon (a new to me author) infused her writing with such tender emotion that even with all the lust between Adriana and Alexander, I found myself completely believing their romance and rooting for them to defy the odds and live happily ever after as a family alongside Alexander’s darling young daughter Georgiana. The heartwarming Christmas-y feels sprinkled throughout the story proved contagious as well and I left the novella with a smile of contentment on my face. I do wish the story had been longer, but that criticism is almost always a given when dealing with a novella, especially one I loved as much as this one. I’ll be seeking out more of the author’s work in the future.
