Title: Bound by the Christmastide Room

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Paranormal Romance, Holiday, Regency

Release Date: September 11, 2018

 

A MAN TRYING TO ESCAPE FROM THE PAST…
When Silas Anson inherits the earldom of Lichfield from a father he never knew, he has one goal: protect his siblings. To do so, he’ll need to do two things: replenish the estate’s depleted coffers, and gain the support of his powerful family—even though they betrayed his mother years ago. An arranged marriage with the daughter of the Marquess of Blandford will accomplish both of these objectives, while giving him a chance at a normal, happy life.

NEEDS A WOMAN WHO CAN SEE THE FUTURE.
Except Lady Mallory Hughes isn’t the normal debutante he expects. Along with a large dowry, she’s inherited her family’s gift for predicting the future. For years, her family has kept her hidden away from society, for fear she will bring the family shame. If she is ever to have a chance at an independent existence—and love—she must get through this week without alerting Silas about her visions. But when Mallory touches Silas, she sees his death.
With Silas’s life on the line, how can Mallory save him without revealing her gift, and risking their chance at a future together?

Excerpt from Bound by the Christmastide Moon:

 

“Are you certain you do not wish to freshen up before meeting with Lord Lichfield?” Hettie did her utmost to keep up with Mallory as she departed the dining hall. “Mayhap change your gown or have Miss Felicity’s maid re-pin your hair?”
Mallory paused, her aunt colliding with her shoulder at the sudden stop.
She’d dressed that day as she did each morn. The gown she wore had been specifically packed because it highlighted her ample curves and hid her not-so-narrow waist. The ribbon woven through her long, brown curls was of a deep plum that complemented her grey gown. Her shoes were half-boots, sturdy enough for a walk about Tetbery Estate. Except for the ink marring her hand, Mallory appeared as she always did.
Poised. Modest. Genteel.
Everything the daughter of a marquess was raised to be.
That she was anything but poised on the inside was of no consequence, so long as she did her utmost to keep those around her blissfully unaware.
Her talent as an oracle—or a clairvoyant—did not define Mallory. In fact, she was determined to prove her family wrong and live a normal life. That she’d need refrain from touching others—and most objects—did not deter her from believing a normal life could be hers.
“I need not freshen anything. If my simple frock and daily coiffure is not to Lord Lichfield’s liking, then imagine if he learned of my talents.”
“You are not to speak of it,” Hettie hissed. “Your father would—“
“My father would die of apoplexy if I embarrassed him in any way,” Mallory finished. “Think you I am opposed to this match? I assure you, I do.”
Mallory squared her shoulders and marched into the foyer, pausing only to allow the butler to open the parlor door and announce their arrival.
“Lady Henrietta Hughes and Lady Mallory Hughes,” Tolsworth proclaimed, giving Mallory a reassuring nod as she swept past him and into the room.
She was vaguely aware of her aunt entering the parlor behind her and the butler pulling the door closed after stating tea would arrive with all due haste; however, Mallory stood rooted to the spot.
She hadn’t thought about what Lord Lichfield would look like, nor considered his age when she’d been told of the potential match. He could have been plagued with a hunched back or vertically challenged, but she hadn’t questioned that.
The man who stood to greet them was not what she’d envisioned in an arranged marriage.
He was not stout or rounded. He was in possession of all his extremities. And he certainly was not of an age past his prime.
Lord Lichfield did, however, tower over both Mallory and Hettie.
The earl’s shoulders were broad enough to pull a cart or roll a boulder up a hill.
And he was handsome. Not in the tradition English sense with a sharp nose, angular jaw, and rigid stance. No, it was far more—yet far less—what her brethren in muslin considered a dashing man.
He had a sophisticated air about him. As if he had seen things, experienced things, Mallory could only guess at.
His clenched jaw, and his clear blue eyes cascading over her, made Mallory wish she’d donned a gown that didn’t constrict her breathing in such a manner, as she found it exceedingly difficult to gain a proper breath.
Her stomach fluttered—actually fluttered as he gazed upon her.
A single black curl fell over one eye, and he pushed it back before turning his attention to Aunt Hettie.
“Heaven’s above,” Hettie hissed in her ear.

My thoughts 
Bound by the Christmastide Room by Christina McKnight is a quick read, a Novella.   Originally published in Kissed at Christmas (Castle Keyvnor Collection)
I love Christmas stories, and this author brought the spirit and magic of Christmas together with this brilliantly written tale of two strangers, their secrets and an arranged marriage. The cast of characters are charming,  engaging and believable.  The plot was fantastic,  a lady who can predict the the future and a gentleman who needs her dowry.  Lady Mallory Hughes, has a large dowry, and she’s inherited her family’s gift, of sight.  Silas Anson, inherits the earldom of Lichfield from his  father whom he never knew, he has one goal in mind to protect his siblings, to do this he must marry.
Sparks fly when Mallory and Silas meet, and as they say…. the rest is history.  Readers will find some surprises,  twists and turns, secrets and a Christmas HEA.  A great afternoon read to help get you in the Christmas spirit.  An absolute delight to read!

Author Bio:
Descended from a long line of storytellers, Jacki spins adventures filled with mystery, healing and romance.

Jacki’s love affair with the arts began at a young age and inspired her to train as a jazz singer and dancer. She has performed many acting roles with Seattle Opera Company and Pacific Northwest Ballet.

Her travels to London and Paris ignited a deep-seated passion to write the romantic, regency The Code Breaker Series. Jacki is certain she spent at least one lifetime dancing in the Moulin Rouge.

Jacki has set her Grayce Walters Mystery Series in Seattle, her long-time home. The city’s unique and colorful locations are a backdrop for her romantic mystery.

Although writing now fills much of her day, she continues to volunteer for Seattle’s Ballet and Opera Companies and leads children’s tours of Pike Street Market. Her volunteer work with Seattle’s homeless shelters influenced one of her main characters in An Inner Fire and Women Under Fire.

Jacki’s two Golden Labs, Gus and Talley, were her constant companions. Their years of devotion and intuition inspired her to write both dogs as heroes in each series.

A geek at heart, Jacki loves superhero movies–a hero’s battle against insurmountable odds. But her heroines don’t have to wear a unitard to fight injustice and battle for the underdog.

Look for more heart-pounding adventure, intrigue, and romance in A Code of the Heart—A Regency Novella, next in the Code Breaker Series, to be released on Valentine’s Day, 2015.

A Christmas Code

Book Blurb:
Lady Gwyneth Beaumont has long awaited the opportunity to show Viscount James Ashworth that she is no longer the impetuous child who dogged his footsteps. Now a much sought-after debutante, she is determined to prove to the hard-headed rake that she is a grown woman and a worthy participant in both the spy game and the game of love.

Ash, recently returned from three years undercover in France in His Majesty’s service, wants nothing more than to complete his final mission and retire to his bucolic country estate. However, what seemed a simple assignment to protect the Prince Regent at a Christmas party turns into a maze of intrigue, desire, and treachery.

Adding to the perilous secret operation is one problem Ash never anticipated: The appearance of the reckless, enticing Gwyneth, who has blossomed into a gorgeous woman and self-appointed spy. When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger.

Can Ash protect Gwyneth and the Prince from French assailants and, at the same time, win the passionate lady’s heart?

Can Ash and Gwyneth both triumph as winners in the game of spies and love?

#VISIT AND #GIVEAWAY WITH CHRISTIAN AUTHOR, JANET K. HALLING….

MBA&M PRESENTS….

JANET K. HALLING!!

WELCOME JANET TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE!

My Favorite Christmas Memories

By: Janet K. Halling, Author of An Unexpected Angel, available now!

 

I have many wonderful memories of Christmas. My family had a lot of traditions that are probably familiar to many…pajamas for Christmas Eve, a special Christmas dinner (on the good china!), reading the Christmas story from the Bible, delivering treats to the neighbors… these things and many more created the wonderful Christmases of my childhood.

 

Among my favorite memories are the years my siblings and I would sleep in the same room. We didn’t do it every year – for reasons that will soon become obvious – but when we did, it was awesome.

 

We slept in my room because it was the biggest and because it was directly over my parent’s bedroom. I don’t know why they allowed this. Probably because all the hollering and banging around up there meant they could at least keep track of us all, especially on this night when stealth was so important!

 

After one last Christmas carol, a family prayer, and some truly speedy washing up, my two sisters and three brothers would drag their sleeping bags into my room. Everyone smelled like new flannel and toothpaste and we were all overly-sugared, wild-eyed, and completely crazy with excitement.

 

It would begin innocently enough. My parents would tuck us in, kiss us goodnight, and close the door. We would lie there quietly until inevitably someone would let out a happy little shriek. Then someone else would shriek back and maybe start kicking to rustle their sleeping bag. And on and on until we had become complete maniacs…jumping, squealing, laughing, pounding on the floor, shouting Santa Claus songs at the top of our lungs…one year we even pulled my bed into the middle of the room and did gymnastics over it.

 

Inevitably, Mom would come in and tell us to quiet down so we’d straighten our bedding, turn out the lights, and try again. And always with the same result. Complete chaos until finally we collapsed from exhaustion.

 

Now I am a mom and am trying to give my children that same Christmas magic. And some years I have to poke my head into my daughter’s room to tell my four children to settle down because they are jumping, squealing, and laughing; overly-sugared, wild-eyed, and smelling of new flannel and toothpaste.

 

And I smile.

Oh! What a wonderful memory! Thanks for sharing your Christmas memory with us and our readers.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE AND HAPPY MEMORIES!

AN UNEXPECTED ANGEL

JANET K. HALLING

An Unexpected Angel

It was Christmas Eve, and the Empire State Building was lit with red and green. The streets were jammed with traffic, and the fog was rolling in off the Hudson, turning the streetlights into misty orbs.

Ella sighed and turned away from the window and the twinkling lights below, determined not to give in to the painful memories that had been lurking in the back of her mind all day.

Ella Davies hates Christmas. Every year she spends the holidays working, trying to bury the pain of a childhood tragedy. But this season, Ella’s about to learn something only an angel could teach her.

With the help of an unlikely friend, Ella gains new hope and discovers the truth about her past, learning the power of forgiveness along the way.

This modern twist on a Christmas classic will remind you that the best gifts of all are the loved ones you learn to treasure!
