Publisher's Summary

He’s entirely the wrong sort of man. That’s what makes him so utterly right.

After a horrific marriage, widow Everleigh Chatterton is cynical and leery of men. She rarely ventures into society, and when she must, she barely speaks to them. Her one regret for refusing to marry again is that she’ll never bear children. As a favor to a friend, she reluctantly agrees to attend a Christmas house-party. Unfortunately, Griffin, Duke of Sheffield is also in attendance. Even though Everleigh has previously snubbed him, she can’t deny her attraction to the confident, darkly handsome duke.

For almost a year, Griffin has searched for the perfect duchess to help care for the orphan he’s taken on. He sets his sights on the exquisite but unapproachable widow after her sweet interactions with the child impress him. Everleigh vows she’s not interested in him or any other man. But Griffin is convinced he can thaw her icy exterior and free the warm, passionate woman lurking behind the arctic facade. Only, as he pursues her, it’s his heart that’s transformed.

Can Everleigh learn to trust and love again? Will Griffin get his Christmas wish and make her his bride? Or, has he underestimated her wounds and fears and be forced to let her go?

This audiobook is part of a series but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Get this romantic, heart-warming Regency Yuletide story you’ll want to listen to in one sitting.

Sweet Romance

I love the patience of Griffin with Everleigh. He allows her the room to decide what she needs out of their relationship. He doesn't push her for a decision but abides by her wishes. The man understands what he wants, but know he needs to let Everleigh come to him. She loves him, but she lives in fear of the past. Her time at the Christmas party shows her that with Griffin she no longer need to fear but let him love her. I loved this audio version and felt like I was at the house party too.

Heartwarming!

Sometimes one is lucky enough to find a writer who not only writes well but can also write a seduction scene that is quite tasteful and yet explicit enough to let the reader know what is happening. Collette Cameron is one such writer and I applaud her for that.
Not only that, but she also keeps one connected to her story, keen to read on and find out what will happen next.
I absolutely loved that little 3 year old girl who came across as very cute and innocent.
I could easily sympathize with the main heroine, Everleigh and all that she was going through and the hero, Griffin, was so patient and understanding that I couldn't help but love him.
This is a remarkable story and I listened to the audiobook which is beautifully narrated by Stevie Zimmerman and I am happy to recommend it to all lovers of regency tales.
My voluntary and unbiased review above was written after listening to a requested audiobook version of it.

Lovely short work for Christmas

First: The incomparable Stevie Zimmerman, 'nuff said. Alright. I really did enjoy this short novella in audio. I shall now be reading the rest of the series based on mention of the other players in the story. You only catch a glimpse, but you can tell there's camaraderie there, my favorite kind of series. The Hero and heroine are Griffin and Everleigh at a Christmas house party given by one of Everleigh's dear friends. Griffin brings with him a child people assume is his by-blow, who escapes her nurse and is found crying and then comforted by Everleigh. Or, as little Sara calls her 'Angel Lady.' Everleigh has some pretty ugly baggage to get rid of before she can be happy again, but Griffin is up to the task helping out with that. And it doesn't hurt that Sara wants Everleigh to be her mama. This is a Christmas story so it isn't high angst, and there's no typical child in peril and in need of rescue. It's just enough drama for the story to reach the HEA without suspending disbelief, and it even has a sweet epilogue. I might have subtracted 1/2 a star for so many character's names I had no connection with, but I didn't have to round up. I knew it was part of a series so I didn't let that pull me out of the story but just one time, then let it go and just enjoyed myself. Recommended holiday listen.

A delightful story

This was such a delightful story. Everleigh had a disastrous first husband, enough to put her off marriage for life. Griffin, the Duke of Sutcliffe was looking for a bride, mainly to take care of his child. I enjoyed their growing relationship and Griffin’s understanding of Everleigh’s doubts and reservations. The teasing by Griffin’s friends was amusing. This is just the story to curl up with on a winter’s afternoon. The narrator used different voices for the characters and on the whole they were very good, however, I found the child’s voice just a little shrill!

Christmas Angels

Everleigh Chatterton is a widow who was abused by her later husband and his son. Griffin, Duke of Sheffield, is an adventurer who wants a mama for his adopted daughter. When they meet at the holiday house party of a friend, there is a strong attraction. Is it possible that a gentle, understanding man and a sweet Christmas angel named Sarah bring her the hope and love she needs so very much. The characters are loveable, except Caroline (she’s awful). Sarah is absolutely squeezable. This is a heartwarming story read beautifully by Stevie Zimmerman.

Heartfelt!

Collette Cameron has written a wonderful story! This can be enjoyed all year long. Stevie Zimmerman is perfect narrating it! Griffin had brought home with him an adorable little girl from India after both of her parents had passed away. He was so impressed when the little girl took a great liking to Everleigh. Everleigh was not only a widow and beautiful, but she had sworn off of men after her late husband had abused her. At a house party of a friend, the little girl, Griffin and Everleigh each made a Christmas wish. Would they come true? A fun story!

Entertaining read with awesome narration..



Cute story, about Griffin and Everleigh. She had been married before to a pervert and abusive man who, thankfully, died in a robbery, along with his evil son. That left Everleigh a very wealthy widow. And, Griffin who fell in love with her the minute she picked up his daughter but Everleigh was afraid of being controlled and abused AGAIN so she was a little hesitant, even though she had fallen for him too.

Caroline, the biotch, added that one person everyone loves to hate.

Except for Caroline this was a love story with one vanilla sex scene, which was okay with me. There’s nothing worse than a long-drawn-out sex scene in a novella.

As to the narration: I think the biggest reason I liked this novella so much was because Stevie Zimmerman narrated it. Her voices and emotions are outstanding.

A December With A Duke

Collette has handled with exceptional grace a known and reviled custom in regency times that was a travesty to justice. The heroine is raped but it isn’t described, just alluded to so she’s forced to wed. The heroine then gets pregnant but loves her little girl who passes also. Another trigger to some. It is all handled well. I enjoyed this book so much. It is a favorite of mine. So much so that I own the boon and audio! The heroine has to learn to love. It is so liberating that she overcomes all she’s been through. She’s a strong woman that endured for a while but eventually comes forth from her chrysalis to be a full woman again!

Great story line!!!!

this is definitely not one of those run-of-the-mill regency romance plots. I really enjoyed this book and almost wish it would’ve been even longer. Really interesting characters.

A perfect novella

I listened to this book in one sitting. It had just the right amount of angst and tenderness. The hero was amazing...add a child and a puppy during the holidays and it is a magic read. The narrator did an excellent job. I will definitely listen to more of her narrations.
