Christmas Angel

Christmas Angel - Jo Beverley This is an atypical Regency romance for Beverley or so I've read. I was really happy to find that the whole woman as possession was tone down to a whisper in this book. Both Leander and Judith are longing for a marriage based on honesty, friendship and the desire to make a home. Judith has been nicknamed the Weeping Widow by the villagers, Leander is looking to marry without the foolish emotion of love and wants friendship and a solid honest relationship instead. He finds a ready made family with Judith and her two children. No real villains in this story, such two persons learning to love each other without realizing it. I found it an agreeable read, something like a nice cup of tea with with your favorite cookies on a Sunday afternoon.
