She wants nothing to do with him or the holiday frivolities…
Lady Olivia Rivenhall has always lived at Belhaven Hall. A year has passed since her husband’s unexpected death, and she’s been living in limbo wondering when she will have to vacate her home and finally decide what to do with the rest of her life. Just as she is beginning to believe that the new earl will never come to take possession of the manor, Maxwell Drake walks back into her life.
After almost dying in a gutter in Venice, Maxwell Drake vows to turn his life around. Learning that he’s inherited his estranged cousin’s title is exactly the fresh start he needs. Max is looking forward to enjoying Christmas in the English countryside at the estate he’s missed, but he’s dreading facing his cousin’s widow, the only woman he’s ever loved.
The attraction is stronger than ever, but so are the wounds. As Christmas magic steals through the ancient halls and secrets beckon to be shared, can these two lonely hearts find a second chance at love?
Christmas at BelHaven hall
This was a fun fast paced warm hearted holiday romance that I enjoyed reading. I loved watching Max and Olivia chemistry is off the charts. They had misunderstandings but their chemistry and the love between them showed throughout the book. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
What a fun book!! Loved the chemistry of the main characters.
Karla Kratovil creates such great characters! I loved the chemistry between Olivia and Drake. A great story with characters that have a deep history and some sizzling scenes! Definitely one of the best in the Maidens of Marbury series so far!
