Review: His Mistress by Christmas

His Mistress by Christmas by Victoria Alexander

For three years, Lady Veronica Smithson has been perfectly happy as a widow--and thoroughly independent. Still, the right gentleman could provide the benefits of marriage without the tedious restrictions. And in Sir Sebastian Hadley-Attwater, renowned explorer and rogue, Veronica is sure she has found him.
Sebastian will come into his inheritance in a matter of weeks--if his family deems him responsible enough. There's no better way to prove his maturity than with a wife. But though Veronica will share his bed, she refuses to marry. However, Sebastian has a plan: An intimate sojourn at his new country house will surely change Veronica's mind. For Sebastian never takes no for an answer. And he intends to persuade his Christmas mistress that they belong together--in this, and every season to come. . .

My Thoughts:
A fun twist on your average historical romance. When adventurer Sebastian finds Veronica, he decides he is ready to settle down and make her his wife. What he doesn't count on is that this widow of three years, and free spirit, values her independence so much that she is only willing to be his mistress. Couple this with the fact that Sebastian doesn't find it proper to seduce the woman one wishes to marry, and it is pretty darn funny. An all-around fun read.
