Merrily Mismatched by Virginia Brown

Lady Lucia Crossclyffe can’t resist the charms of Marquess of Rillington, a holiday visitor to her isolated island home. Little does she guess that he’s come there to ruin her . . . 

The Snow Princess by Jo Ann Ferguson

After years of being presumed dead, Major Jeremy Stanhope has come home from the war. His first order of business – to propose to Lady Rosalie Partington, the woman who’s waited for him all these years. Only Rosalie is already betrothed . . . to the traitor who left him for dead! 

Christmas Truce by Karen Frisch

Charles Hudson, the Earl of Westerly, has come to Windermere for Christmas with one intention – to offer for the woman whose letters have captivated him for the last year. But is the letter-writer the woman he thinks she is? 

Miss Montague’s Mistletoe Match by Sharon Sobel

Overall, Mistletoe and Mayhem was an enjoyable, quick read. All of the stories had something different to offer; although, by far, my favourite was Merrily Mismatched. I loved the characters and story idea in this one. I was a little put off Miss Montague's Mistletoe Match due to one scene in which the characters acted in a way that I did not feel was appropriate for the period. I don't want to spoil anything for readers by saying what happened, but I simply didn't believe someone in Miss Montague's position would do what she did. Otherwise, though, this is a pleasant read for fans of historical romances, and the stories are of a perfect size to read one per evening.
