‘Sweetest Regret’ by Meredith Duran

sr-mdSTORY: At a house party in the countryside, the joyful spirit of the Christmas season threatens to sweep Georgiana Trent under the mistletoe—and back into the arms of the dashing rogue who broke her heart two years ago. Little does she know that Lucas Godwin has no intention of leaving until he has reclaimed her as his own.

Will the festive spirit of the season sweep this feisty heroine beneath the mistletoe—and back into the arms of the dashing rogue whose carelessness soiled her reputation and sent her into exile in London?

The spirit of the season is festive—and clouding even the sharpest of judgments—in this Victorian era romance.

This is a novella that was previously published in 2015 in the Christmas-themed anthology, What Happens Under the Mistletoe.

REVIEW: December 1885

Georgina (Georgie) Trent has been tasked by her father to host a rowdy group of drunken foreign diplomats for Christmas. One of these people has supposedly stolen a sensitive letter from her father’s study and now Lucas Godwin has been sent to find the thief. This is the man who broke Georgie’s heart two years ago. When they meet again, she is cool and aloof to him. But, he has never forgotten her.

As Georgie is the hostess for the foreign visitors, she has planned some expeditions and programs for them to experience true English holidays. The plan is while Georgie keeps the visitors busy, Lucas will search their rooms for the missing letter.

When they are together, their conversations consist of trading insults while privately fighting their attraction to one another. As they talk, the truth behind what happened in the past is revealed which is quite a surprise.

This is a short novella with an interesting plot and some amusing characters. I’m sure readers will enjoy it as much as I did.
