Just one kiss under the mistletoe could change her whole life! Lovely Miss Emma Harrison has long turned her back on the frivolities of the Marriage Mart and dedicated herself to helping her father. But this Christmas everything changes—the unforgettable Jack Stanton is back! No longer the charity boy determined to make good, he has become one of the richest men in England. Driven to succeed and used to getting anything he wants, Jack makes it clear that he wants Emma. And as the Yuletide festivities throw Emma into his company, she can't help but wonder if she made the right choice seven years ago…

Review:

Michelle Styles’s latest Harlequin Historical, A Christmas Wedding Wager is absolutely terrific! Meticulously researched, highly evocative, dramatic and romantic, A Christmas Wedding Wager is the perfect romance to curl up with on a cold winter’s night!

At eighteen, Emma Harrison was the belle of the ball and she loved nothing better than being society’s favorite debutante. Her whole life revolved around frivolity, triviality and, aided by her socially climbing mother, finding a rich husband.
But when Emma met Jack Stanton, her father’s apprentice and a poor Geordie boy with no money or connections, Emma found herself falling head over heels in love with him – until her mother put a stop to it! Jack left Newcastle, determined to make something of his life leaving Emma unable to forget the man she loved.

But seven years later, Emma’s life has changed completely. Her mother died and her poor father’s health is going from bad to worse. With nobody left to run the family business, Emma steps into breach and finds herself coming face to face with Jack Stanton, now one of England's richest men.

Time may have passed, but the flame of attraction still sizzles and a kiss under the mistletoe only serves to cement their ardor. Will Jack and Emma grasp with both hands their second chance at love and happiness?

I absolutely loved A Christmas Wedding Wager. Readers always know they are in for a good read with a Michelle Styles historical and her latest Victorian romance will enthrall and captivate readers who enjoy their historicals with plenty of history and passion!
