A spirited lady facing spinsterhood. A common man with a noble mission. And a surprise that just might be waiting for them under the mistletoe in Kiss Me At Christmas by Valerie Bowman.
Bow Street Runner Daffin Oakleaf abhors Christmas. Carol singing and holiday cheer only remind him of a dark time. When a close friend calls on him for help, Daffin is happy to capitalize on the distraction. But when he learns the lovely Lady Regina is the one in danger, he’s to become bodyguard to the captivating woman…
Regina has one mission: to find a night of passion in the arms of a gentleman. Considered firmly on the shelf, Regina has given up on marriage—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be denied the pleasure married ladies experience. Daffin has long captured her attention…and when a threat calls him to her side, the sparks between them ignite. But how can a hired bodyguard find his way into Regina’s noble heart?
Kiss Me at Christmas by Valerie Bowman is full of action, mystery, risks, and romance. It was easy to fall in love with the characters. The bow street runner, is born in a position where most of society deems him unfit. But before that secret was let out, he was welcomed by all. That same man found his mom dead as a kid and knew his father and his wife were behind it.
Daffin has proved himself in more ways than expected. Still felt like he has failed…only his heart’s attention still thinks the world of him. And that is what mattered all along. Love for the young couple featured in this story was a rough journey. Both were determined, strong, and clever. Their attraction was hot and sent sparks flying everywhere. I enjoyed the humor and the fun banters between both characters. Their friends were great to follow along as well. Overall, I became an addict when I started the first chapter. Now, I highly recommend this tale and beg for more by Valerie Bowman.
