Goodreads

Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has been estranged from his mother for most of his life. When his mother’s new companion, Mrs. Camilla Stuart, writes to tell him that his mother is seriously ill, he goes home. But when he learns that the lovely widow tricked him in order to effect a holiday reconciliation, he refuses to stay—unless she meets his “terms.” Somewhere between trying to seduce the beautiful Camilla and struggling with the cruel memories of his childhood Christmases, Pierce discovers that not only does forgiveness go two ways, but that love can blossom even in the coldest of winters.

Part of my 25 Books for the Holidays for 2012

How ‘Twas the Night After Christmas put me in the holiday spirit: I love stories about families reconnecting after misunderstandings and estrangement. Throw in a precious little boy who loves the season and this book is just perfect for a holiday read.

What I thought of the characters/story: ‘Twas the Night After Christmas was a wonderful combination of location, story, and romance to put me in the holiday spirit. I really felt drawn to Pierce from the beginning and wondered if/how he was going to reconnect with his mother. I had ideas about what the big secret was but I was totally wrong. I also really loved the romance “dance” (not literally) between Pierce and Camilla. They had a slow build to falling for each other (even though it was a short amount of time) and Camilla always kept what was important to her first (her son). This was such an accurate portrayal of a mother’s love for her son, a romance between two individuals of different stations, and the healing power of the Christmas season!
