Review of Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight

LADY LOUISA'S CHRISTMAS KNIGHT may be purchase here.

Grace Burrowes

Lady Louisa Windham is tired of the seemingly never-ending hunt for a husband, and hopes that maybe this year she can step aside and let her sisters take center stage.  It is during a fox hunt, that  Louisa saves Sir Joseph Carrington from being ambushed by several marriage minded females.  While Joseph has come to the festivities, because he is in need of a wife, he is, nevertheless, happy to be saved from these particular females.  Later, Sir Joseph steps in, when Louisa is in danger of being ruined.  

LADY LOUISA'S CHRISTMAS KNIGHT is a very enjoyable regency romance with complex characters and an enchanting love story.  Let me state upfront, that I love Sir Joseph.  Who wouldn't love someone, who confides and reads poetry to his pet pig, Lady Ophelia?  Added to this is the fact, that he is a loving father, who allows his children to climb all over him.  Sir Joseph is plain-spoken, honorable, and doesn't really stand out among the ton.  Lady Louisa Windham is an unusual heroine, in that she is brilliant, probably a genius, but, also, socially awkward, at times.  Louisa doesn't seek to marry, because of a secret from her past, but she can't deny her attraction to Sir Joseph.  Sticklers for historical accuracy might be a little put out on a couple of occasions, as an example, pajamas are mentioned.  However, this doesn't detract from my enjoyment of the book, and I only found a couple of inaccuracies.  

It was great watching these two introverts fall for each other, and I can't wait for the next book in the series, because I have grown to love the Windham family.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
