A reluctant angel, three not terribly wise men, two gorgeous men on a starlit chase to find a child ... It can only be Christmas.
It’s Christmas 1817 and Captain Charles Farrington has accepted that he is destined to live alone. That is, until Christmas Eve, when a startlingly handsome man crashes into his home and his life.
Harry Valentine is a man on the run. A man with secrets. He hasn’t time to fall for the angel who rescued him and, in any case, he knows that once Charlie realises the truth about him, there will be no future for them.
Harry’s warmth makes Charles face up to the demons in his past and shows him that he can have a family. All he has to do is persuade Harry to stay. But Charlie knows that, despite whatever Harry says, he’s the wrong kind of angel for happy endings.
This is a Christmas theme historical m/m with a small dash of suspense. Charlie is an ex-soldier, planning to spend a quiet Christmas Eve alone with his helper being away for the festive season. What he didn't expect is to find a young man practically collapse at his front door and disrupt his lonely holiday season.
Harry is on the run and the last thing he expect is getting help from a gentleman. Charlie is definitely an angel incarnated, not only offering help and care, but offering him solace as well.
This is pretty short, even for a novella standard and the romance progression is really fast. On the first day of their meeting, they started from not knowing whether are the other person gay to getting down and dirty in front of the fire place. The author did gave a good back story for each other the characters and instill a little bit of suspense and danger to the plot. Overall, a short read with pretty decent plot, but didn't get me emotionally invested.
My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My particular weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal. I decided to write m/m romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare moment finds me writing or reading. I live in the North West of England with my husband who thinks that I live in two worlds. The real world and the world in my head…he probably has a point.
