A Pirate for Christmas by Anna Campbell is a 2015 publication.

Holiday novellas are so popular and easy to work into your busy Christmas time schedule, when finding time to read can be a challenge.

This one has such a pretty cover, and the story is light, with only a moderate amount of angst. There is a minimal cast of characters, which leaves plenty of time for Lord Channing, a man with quite the reputation as a pirate, and a Vicar’s daughter, Bess Farrar to get to know each other.

The couple engages in the most charming conversations and the author gets extra marks for sticking with more accurate and authentic historical dialogue and social customs. I loved Lord Channing, who proves he is much more noble than his reputation would have you believe, and Bess is sassy, smart, and bold and very easy to like and admire.
There are many Christmas themed romances to choose from, but if you enjoy historical romance, this one is worth checking out. As an added incentive, as of this writing, (12-20-16), the book is free in the Kindle store.

Overall, this story is cute and a very enjoyable holiday romance.
