When her father threatens to marry Abigail Montross off to a man twice her age (and with thirteen children!), she decides to elope instead with the irresistibly handsome Baron de Vasconia. She knows all abut his notorious reputation. He is the most seductive man in all of London, but he’s vowed to protect her, so she allows herself to be tempted into his bed, promising to guard her heart at all costs.
Andres believes he’s entered into nothing more than a marriage of convenience with a charming and very wealthy young woman. But the days–and nights–Abigail spends in his arms soon reform this rogue. He’ll do anything to gain her love–until they each discover the truth about the other and old wounds are revealed.

It’s the season of miracles and passion–when love not only awakens the senses but delivers the greatest gift of all . . .

Part of my 25 Holiday Reads for 2012

How His Christmas Pleasure put me in the Holiday Spirit: This season I am really loving the historical reads and this is not an exception. How they met, how they connected, and the spirit of the relationship put me in the Holiday spirit.

What I thought of the Characters/Story: His Christmas Pleasure is a marriage of convenience story with a ton of heart. Almost from the beginning, you can feel the attraction, mutual respect, and start of love from both Abigal and Andres. It is the respect and trust (though yes this was tested) that really won me over. They seemed to be each other’s biggest champions. I fell in love with them as a couple and enjoyed their romance.

What I thought of the audio: Narrated by Jaime Birch, I thought she did an excellent job on all the voices except maybe Andres. It took me awhile to warm up to her doing his voice. I am almost positive this was due to his Spanish accent. Otherwise, the pacing, narration, and cadence was wonderful for the story. I will listen to her read/act out another book in a heartbeat.

    I am going to try to squeeze in at least one historical romance before Christmas. I have a MacLean sitting on my nook shelf. Sara @ The Librarian Reads gobbles them up around the holidays. I need to catch the wave.
