What Happens Under the Mistletoes by Jeffries, Hawkins, Camp and Duran

What Happens Under the Mistletoes by Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, Candace Camp and Meredith Duran.

***The Heiress and the Hotheat by Sabrina Jeffries - book 1.5 in the Sinful Suitors series***

Amanda Keane is visiting England to see her brother as well as learning more about the textile mills that are more profitable than the one she is running in America. She didn't count on falling in love.

Lord Stephen Corry, a writer and crusader against the unjust treatment of mill workers, doesn't know what to think about the woman that her mistakenly kissed under the mistletoe. As a mill owner, she represents everything he is against.

Can these foes get past their differences to find their HEA?

A quick read with some of my favorites from last and current series by Jeffries.  Foes that turn into lovers are always a favorite of mine.

***Twelve Kisses to Midnight by Karen Hawkins - loosely tied to the Oxenburg Princes series ***

Marcus Sutherland, the Duke of Rothesay sees his mistress standing under the mistletoe and sweeps in for a kiss. As soon as his lips touch hers, he knows it is not his mistress. It's his former fiancee, Lady Kenna Montrose. Scandal ensues and Kenna leaves the house party to get her father to "fix" things. Of course, Marcus follows her and he gets injured. Kenna luckily finds shelter, but they are forced to stay for several days while a winter storm passes. 

Will their close proximity rekindle the love they once held for each other?

A wonderful, quick read! I always love a reunion story and Hawkins hit it out of the park.  It also helped that Grand Duchess Natasha Nikolaevna was there to meddle!!

***By Any Other Name by Candace Camp***

Rylla Campbell is desperate to find her brother before Christmas, so much so that she dresses as a man and huts for him in the gaming hells. Leaving the hells, she is attacked and Gregory Rose steps in to help. He soon learns she is a girl which is a relief since he couldn't imagine why he was feeling an attraction to the young man he rescued. Not wanting to let her go, Gregory agrees to help her find her brother. Spending every evening together brings them closer than either anticipated. 

Another great read by one of my favorite authors. Mystery and romance...a perfect combination!

***Sweetest Regret by Meredith Duran***

Left in charge of her father's house party, Georgie Trent is left to entertain her father's guests. If that weren't bad enough, her father has sent for Lucas Godwin to find some letters that were stolen. Georgie has no desire to see Lucas again after he broke her heart two years ago, but what is she to do? Seeing Lucas again makes her realize that she never got over him. Can they get passed their previous hurt to work together and find the love that they lost?

Another wonderful reunion story that had me wishing it was a full length novel!
