Ella Quinn’s wealthy, titled bachelors think they're immune to romantic notions. Yet no matter how they try to evade it, love somehow finds a way...
In the two seasons since her triumphant debut, Meg Featherton's heart has been tested to its limits. Her first suitor: a criminal. The second, a cad. For her third act, Meg vows to leave love completely out of the marriage equation. She has set her sights on a newly made viscount whom she could take or leave. However, now she must avoid his handsome, roguish, irresistible best friend like the plague. It’s no easy feat, as they are all attending the same house party...
Damon, Marquis of Hawksworth, cannot imagine why Miss Featherton seems so damn disinterested—or why he cares so terribly much. Certainly Meg is a fine wifely prospect for a man in his position, but more than that, he finds he longs for her as he has never done for another woman. She may be determined to protect her heart, but Damon is equally set on winning her over, one delicious kiss at a time...

MISS FEATHERTON’S CHRISTMAS PRINCE is a truly romantic story filled with delightful Christmas details! Miss Meg Featherton really wants to get married before she is officially a spinster, she always wanted to marry for love, however her first two proposals were epic disasters, and she has decided the man she will marry will be boring but predictable and safe. She is attending a house party, and notices Chuffy Throughgood, who seems to fit the bill of desirable husband. Meg thinks her friend Amanda is interested in Damon, Marquis of Hawksworth, who appears quite the dandy and much too similar in character to the two scoundrels who broke Meg’s heart, so Meg decides that, to make sure Damon shows his true nature and doesn’t bother Amanda, she will stick close to the Marquis. However, unbeknownst to Meg, Chuffy and Amanda have quite fallen in love with each other, and Damon is determined that Meg is the woman for him, but how to make her see that he is nothing like those rakes?
MISS FEATHERTON’S CHRISTMAS PRINCE is filled with honest, and honourable lead characters, which was very refreshing. Damon is a wonderful man, even though he appears only concerned with his appearance, he is a man of substance. Meg is a sweet person, but is so distrustful of men, that she cannot see the terrific man who stands right in front of her. A great part of the story focuses on the romance between Chuffy and Amanda, and I thought it was very clever of Ms. Quinn, as Meg is rather sullen, and would have ruined the mood a bit. But when Meg realises that she might love Damon, the story is lifted to almost unimaginable beauty! And towards the end, there are a few shocking plot twists.
Ella Quinn’s attention to historical detail is such that one could easily imagine that MISS FEATHERTON’S CHRISTMAS PRINCE was written when it takes place, and that we partake in Regency Christmas festivities. Her prose is refined, the dialogues are exquisite, and not a word is out of place. And wonders of wonders, I did not spot the tiniest typo! A wonderful Christmas read!
