Thomas, Earl of Bergen is on his way to London for Christmastide and traditional fun with his friends and family. His destination gets delayed when he finds an abandoned donkey and his efforts to save the animal bring him into contact with a lovely widow and a menagerie of both animals and children who need his help with their Christmas pageant.
Widowed Lady Elizabeth Newton enjoys her life and her home in the country. She cares for three children from her late husband’s mistress, as well as helpless animals of every description that would otherwise, have no home. Life changes when the handsome Lord Bergen brings an abandoned, cross-eyed donkey, believed cursed, to her doorstep.
Against all odds, sparks fly between Bergen and the widow. But can a romance survive the danger that follows the donkey?
A Perfect Christmas Story
The most perfect Christmas story that captured my heart and spirit! Anna St Clair has outdone herself with her magical words bringing forth moments that meld together finding happiness when least expected and the true meaning of Christmas.
When Thomas, Earl of Bergen stops at an Inn on his way to London, he would never have thought his life would change forever. A charming donkey he named Clarence (yes loved him) with a magical talisman hanging around his neck, a widower who takes care of helpless animals and children of her deceased husband’s and a Christmas play, kept me unable to stop reading until the last page was turned. Did it make my heart smile? Oh yes and then some. Thank you Anna!!
