finished reading

I didn't know what to expect, although the premise was appealing. Historical holiday romance. It was funny and the plot twists were convoluted enough to keep me reading. There was a terribly cliched intimate moment that detracted, but overall this was a very fun holiday read.

From the publisher:
Camille, Lady Lydingham, requests the pleasure of your company at a festive house party, as she endeavors to coax a marriage proposal from Prince Nikolai Pruzinsky of Greater Avalonia.

The hostess's relatives will be in attendance—in this case, a troupe of actors hired to impersonate a proper English family in order to fool the Prince.

Gate-crashing, distractingly handsome first loves like Grayson Elliott are most unwelcome.

Games will be played.

Motives will be revealed.

Mayhem may ensue.

And hearts will be won—and lost—in the most romantic, magical season of all.

Sounds like a good read. I kind of always expect some sort of cliche in romance books, but it drives me crazy when some authors take it too far.

I'd welcome a gate-crashing, distractingly handsome first love.
