Anna Campbell's novella "The Winter Wife"

The Winter Wife: A Christmas Novella - Anna Campbell

Enjoyed both this novella and the shorter version of it that was published in the Mammoth Book of Regency Romance. It has a couple of my favourite tropes - the Christmas/winter love story, and the story of estranged lovers finding one another again. Angsty and nicely done.

 

(Second read)

Oh, oh.  Read this one a second time and have to downgrade its rating.  The exaggerated, emotionally overwrought style of writing, which is a lot more noticeable when you are familiar with the plot, is so annoying that I almost had to stop reading.
