Received this as a Goodreads giveawayEven though it was a Christmas themed book AND the heroine had even spent much of her life in a convent there was very little actual religion in it so it didn t come off as preachy as some other Christmas romances doOverall I liked it Although the hero was a bit of a rake he was likeable despite his bad habit of not letting the heroine finish a sentence and he did try hard to fighthide his lustful feelings The heroine was sweet without being an idiot and willing to stand up for herselfI did catch at least one editing error the aunt who became a nun was originally Tess s father s sister but toward the end of the book hero thought she had been the mother s sisterA pleasant fast read

Originally posted HEREI nearly skipped this one which was stupid because Louise Allen is one of my favourite historical romance writers I m glad I got it because I really enjoyed it His Housekeeper s Christmas Wish is smart funny historically accurate and very British It has some of that Christmas sweetness without making you sick with it It has characters taking risks but unlike most in the subgenre they seriously consider the conseuences This is not the Disneyland version of the Regency eraAt first I was a little worried about how this would go because like ALL historical romance series this one starts with a secret club of sorts as a hook Four friends from their student days nicknamed the Elementals because they all have elemental names Tempest it didn t sound promisingHowever I can happily report that the hook disappears after a few pages and there s no seuel baiting whatsoever popping up after the first couple of chapters This is a complete book on its own and what a relief that isIn some ways the hero of this one reminded me a bit of Anne Gracie s heroes Kind men rather than brooding jerksHonestly it s always harder to explain why you like a book I can go on forever about the faults in books I disliked Regency romance has been almost done to death so every blurb ends up sounding pretty much the same You have to learn to choose the book by the author not the description and this is an author worth investing inAny author struggling with their British language and grammar should use Allen as a template for their own writing I felt so much immersed in the story because these people actually spoke like English people I was also relieved to see that some of the issues with grammar were all in order in this book as I ve recently read so many books edited outside Britain using grammar in different ways that I thought I d been getting the language wrong my whole lifeMy biggest grumble is with the kitten the hero gives the heroine You DO NOT feed kittens milk Cats cannot tolerate the milk we drink It makes them sick These characters were feeding the kitten milk on every other pageHowever I was so happy with this book It is one of the better books I ve read recently the writing was not only solid but hugely entertaining and I m excited about the rest of the series Review copy provided by NetGalley

The beginning was a little unbelievable but I understand that Ms Allen needed a way to introduce the Elements But after a hapless start I really enjoyed the story When Tess showed up at Alex s townhouse after being assaulted I was hooked She managed to hold on to her portmanteau the cat and also her dignity by beating off her attackersmy kind of gal to be sure even though a bit unlikely for the times What happen next was very plausible and I always enjoy romances where the heroine works her magic on the the hero s efficiently run household Alex was great in that he just enjoys the ride with little objection I loved the part where he comes home early to find Tess and his staff decorating for the holidayit was lovelyAnd then we have a road trip Alex s attitude which was very appreciated in going home after a ten year absence was well I m here what s next on the agenda instead of broody and irrational He was a very likable Again while some of the scenes between Tess and Alex at Tempeston were unlikely for the period I really liked how everything was resolved in the endThis book was uneven but the writing just flowed and I enjoyed the heroine and her honest ways Tess made the book for me without her wonderful characterization the book would have been mediocre at best Dragon Age: Hard in Hightown needed a way to introduce the Elements But after a hapless start I really enjoyed the story When Tess showed up at Alex s townhouse after being assaulted I was hooked She managed to hold on to her portmanteau the cat and also her dignity by beating off her attackersmy kind of gal to be sure even though a bit unlikely for the times What happen The Isles A History next was very plausible and I always enjoy romances where the heroine works her magic on the the hero s efficiently run household Alex was great in that he just enjoys the ride with little objection I loved the part where he comes home early to find Tess and his staff decorating for the holidayit was lovelyAnd then we have a road trip Alex s attitude which was very appreciated in going home after a ten year absence was well I m here what s KING next on the agenda instead of broody and irrational He was a very likable Again while some of the scenes between Tess and Alex at Tempeston were unlikely for the period I really liked how everything was resolved in the endThis book was uneven but the writing just flowed and I enjoyed the heroine and her honest ways Tess made the book for me without her wonderful characterization the book would have been mediocre at best
