When Daniel Stephens finds out who his real father is, he also learns that he's part of the famous Valentine dynasty. He's not convinced that he fits into their world... until he meets beautiful Bella Lucia manager Stephanie Ellison and is captivated by her feisty yet vulnerable spirit...
Stephanie has surround herself with barriers to protect her from her devastating past. Now she's slowly warming to Daniel's gentle charm. This really could be a Christmas to remember - but first Daniel must show Stephanie that she can't hide behind her fears for ever...
Married Under the Mistletoe is the fifth in The Brides of Bella Lucia series and in many ways is the most emotional yet.
Stephanie has every reason to be an ice-maiden yet I found myself warming to her from the beginning. Daniel is a roguish barbarian, who becomes sexier by the second as he falls in love with not just Stephanie but his new-found family.
Linda Goodnight's prose is vibrant throughout and she makes each and every setting come alive. My particular favourite were the scenes Stephanie and Daniel shared along the bank of the river
There is a serious note to this book, yet as horrific as the scars are that Stephanie has, they never overshadow the romance even though they are powerful enough. This book is both a delight and a weepy, culminating in a read I will never forget.
