Review Tour: The Mistletoe Kiss by Ruby Moone (Giveaway)

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 26,600 words

Publisher: JMS Books


By 1816, widowed bookseller Lawrence Fenton has spent a lonely lifetime hiding who he is. He has convinced himself his feelings for his far too young, gorgeous, but troubled assistant Christy Shaw are nothing more than pride in his protégé and concern for his plight.

Christy’s life involves walking fine lines: one between his mother and his abusive stepfather, one where he must keep his needs hidden, and hardest of all, one where he must keep his feelings for his serious employer to himself.

Lame since birth, Lawrence cannot imagine anyone wanting him, least of all Christy. But when Christy’s life threatens to spiral out of control, Lawrence steps in. Then Christy’s emotions spill over into a kiss under the mistletoe at Christmas. Will Lawrence be able to face the long-buried truth about himself and keep Christy by his side?

4 Stars!

This is a short and sweet historical holiday story, told from Lawrence and Christy's POVs, it has a lot of substance for being so short. I've already read other books by Ruby Moone so I know she can write historical books well, she has a knack for the language and customs and giving a very realistic view into Regency England and showing how different things were for persons from a different social class. I loved the slow burn romance between Lawrence and Christy, they were great together and while I would've liked a bit more of closure on Christy's mom's storyline, I was satisfied with the ending. Recommendable!

Author Bio

Ruby lives in Lancashire in the northwest of England. All through school she was told she would never get anywhere if she didn’t stop daydreaming. Eventually it occurred to her to write down the daydreams, and voilà! The beautiful men in her head came to life. Ruby writes historical and contemporary gay romance but has a definite weakness for handsome men in billowing white shirts, breeches, and cravats. Oh, and she loves tea. Lots of tea.
