One thought on “'Twas the Night after Christmas

  1. Daniella

    DNF 25% I can t read a book when I don t even have a modicum of respect for any of the characters In the case of Twas the Night after Christmas, I found everyone except Pierce, the hero, since I think his actions were justified to be unredeemable First, there s Pierce s mother I could not, for the life of me, understand how the hell she managed to ignore her son for so many years I don t think any reason is enough to justify that cruelty Granted, she may have been coerced or blackmailed or whatn [...]

  2. Letitia

    Rating A Heat WarmThis book I don t know what I was expecting, but it definitely wasn t this I mean, I started tearing up while reading the prologue Yeah The prologue And I don t think my eyes were ever completely dry again From those very first few pages, Pierce had me Unequivocally His pain was my pain He got his tiny little eight year old fingers latched around my heart and never let go.Because, at a very young age, Pierce Waverly learned a hard lesson Life isn t fair Abandoned by his parents [...]

    Apparently, this book brought out the Humbug in me.I felt for the boy Pierce, at the beginning, but unfortunately this promising beginning was the last point in which I felt fully sympathetic.Despite her later apologies, Pierce s mom really screwed up I don t judge her for seeking view spoiler love outside of a horrible marriage, as at that time it was really one of only a very few options for women hide spoiler but her behavior during Pierce s visit at age 21 was absolutely reprehensible as wer [...]

    TWAS THE NIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS exemplified the emotionally tortured hero Physically abandoned at the age of eight, Pierce Waverly tried to understand why his parents no longer loved him Fast forward twenty five years later and he was now the Earl of Devonmont His father had died two years before and his mother had been sending him weekly letters since his father s funeral All of which had gone unread into a box Now he was informed by his mother s companion, Mrs Camilla Stuart, that Lady Devonmon [...]

    This, even if only loosely connect with the Hellion of Halstead series, is the best one I loved how both hero, Pierce, and the heroine, Camilla, were very open with each other.Of course there s angst It s present in every book of the series, but here it was contrasted by a very level headed reasoning.Pierce was having very real, very understandable issues with his mother and his angsst was born from them.Camilla s actions and reasoning were also very logical and her angst was burried deep in her [...]

    This review also appears on my blog at thegoldenruleof666spoAnother brilliant book in the Hellions series Twas the Night After Christmas was an emotionally charged, sweet romance that I absolutely adored.I loved the plot of the book It s a unique idea that I ve never seen used before And it was very well done.I really liked Camilla Her loyalty to Lady Waverly was admirable But it wasn t blind loyalty She was determined but that didn t stop her from listening to Pierce and keeping an open mind ab [...]

  11. Terri Wino

    I enjoyed this story, even though I thought the secret Pierce s mother was keeping from him was a bit of a stretch to justify not being a part of his childhood However, I guess in the time period the story takes place it really would have been quite detrimental to his future Being that I liked the story and characters, I could overlook any doubts about the relationship between Pierce and his mother and just enjoy the story.

    4.5 starsDespite not really loving the H h, I enjoyed this book tremendously Perhaps it s because I was in the Christmas spirit that I didn t mind some things that I usually wouldn t like.Some things I didn t love 1 Our hero is written so sympathetically, almost to the point that he s not accountable for anything bad because he s had a sad childhood from his parents abandonment Pierce is an adult and his refusal to grow up and live for himself instead of living to spite his family is off putting [...]

    3.75 StarsRead for the 2015 TBR Challenge December Holiday Themes The challenge is hosted by Wendy the Super Librarian.I bought this book two years ago when it was released in paperback Sabrina Jeffries is one of those authors that makes me think and makes me happy whenever I read one of her books I planned on reading it as soon as I brought it home, but, as we all know, life got in the way and Twas the Night After Christmas got pushed back on the shelf.This is a holiday romance that acts as a b [...]

    Originally posted at longandshortreviewsspThis book starts off heartbreaking and sad It s the set up for what comes later Why the hero is as he is, the thawing that takes place from the clues and revelations that slowly bombard him as he comes to the realization that his whole life is based on a mistruth and how the diabolical hatred of one man can have a domino effect on so many people It s going to take a daring woman full of innocence, hot passions and a secret of her own to accomplish the im [...]

    I received a copy of this book through a giveaway.I really enjoyed this sweet regency romance The characters were well developed and likable, and the plot was well paced I found it hard to put down because I wanted to find out what the secret was that was being kept, and I couldn t wait to see what happened between Pierce and Camilla This was a very light, easy read, but enjoyable at the same time.

  26. Janga

    This is my favorite of the new Christmas books I loved all the characters and was so eager for the resolution that I stayed up late to finish the book And Jeffries earns an extra star from me for avoiding a too easy, overused windup of the thread concerning the heroine s past.

  27. Susan

    Very good book full of intense emotions on the parts of all three main characters We start out seeing Pierce as an eight year old child waiting for his parents to pick him up from school for the holidays His confusion over being sent to relatives instead, and the later hurt and then anger as he is banished from his family from then on He tries to see them one time as an adult and is rejected, whereupon he does his best to show them he doesn t care by becoming something of a rake.After his fathe [...]
