Review: Once Upon a Christmas Kiss by Manda Collins




ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS KISS is a sexy, romantic holiday e-novella, set in the world of Manda Collins's bestselling Wicked Widows trilogy. 

When Sir Lucien Blakemore arrives at his cousin’s estate for a week-long Christmas party, he’s shocked to see Miss Winifred Nightingale among the other guests. Employed by his neighbor back in Yorkshire, the governess with the lovely eyes has always seemed off limits, but she’s visiting here as a guest—and there’s nothing like a little mistletoe to make the spirits bright…
Miss Winifred Nightingale never dreamed a holiday visit with her sister would lead to both ladies spending Christmas as the local lord’s guests. But the big surprise is when she finds the handsome Sir Lucien Blakemore staying there too. The attraction between them is undeniable, but will an old nemesis and a party guest bent on mischief make their first kiss under the mistletoe their last?



I loved this beautiful holiday story, it gave me the warm feelings of the season and I believe this will become a true tradition for me and I will find myself reading it every year. Winifred and her sister are both such deserving heroines and I loved watching them interact with the other members of the house party, especially when some were just so unwelcoming. Sir Lucien is the type of man most women dream of, he knows what he wants and he plans on getting exactly that. The connection between the hero and heroine was undeniable and so very engaging to witness. I would like to see some of these characters make reappearances in upcoming adventures because whether I was annoyed with them or enjoying their pleasant personalities. If you are looking for a heartwarming tale this holiday season, pick this one up!
