    Louise Allen is one of my favourite Mills and BoonHarleuin authors so I was pleased to see that she has a new series underway four books under the collective title of Lords of Disgrace of which His Housekeeper’s Christmas Wish is the first I admit that I rolled my eyes a bit at the name of the hero – Alex Tempest – who sounds like he belongs in a 1960s spy series; but otherwise this is a well written suitably heart warming and not

    Received this as a Goodreads giveawayEven though it was a Christmas themed book AND the heroine had even spent much of her life in a convent there was very little actual religion in it so it didn't come off as preachy as some other Christmas romances doOverall I liked it Although the hero was a bit of a rake h

    A little sweeter and treacle y stereotypical Harleuin category romance than Allen usually writes but enjoyable nonetheless The heroine was raised by nuns in Bruges and ends up through a series of coincidences working as the hero's housekeeper while teaching him to love Christmas and reunite with his semi estranged family As usual Allen keeps things a little contemporary and realistic than perhaps the stereotypical Harleuin cate

Tart the festive period He may have mistaken her for a nun but there's nothing innocent about his reaction to Tess's delicious curves When Tess is left stranded Alex is honor bound to ta. Good book Tess went to live with her aunt at a convent in Ghent when her parents died It wasn t a pleasant upbringing but her needs were met When her aunt died it was made clear to her that if she wasn t planning to become a nun herself it was time to go She was given the option of returning to England where a job would be found for her As she was making her way to the docks and the ship that would take her there she was run into and injured by Alex TempestAlex felt guilty about hurting the lady he first thought was a nun He took her back to his inn and his friends to take care of her injuries In his attempts to take care of her he caused her to miss the boat she was supposed to be on so he promised to get her where she was supposed to be Though he s trying to do the right thing he doesn t think about the conseuences of a young woman traveling with a single man When the convent in London refuses to help her because of it Alex promises to help herI liked Tess a lot She s a very practical young woman thanks to her time at the convent but she also looks for the good in people She accepts Alex s help because she really has no choice but plans to start looking for a position after the holidays When she ends up filling in for Alex s ill housekeeper her strengths really start to show She is incredibly organized and soon has Alex s household running smoothly She also has her own agenda having discovered that Alex is estranged from his family and doesn t celebrate Christmas at all She is determined to bring him into the Christmas spirit and is relentless in that pursuit She is also attracted to him but knows nothing can come of it Her parents may have been well born but she is illegitimate and therefore not eligible for a man like Alex Alex is something of a self made man At the age of seventeen he had a falling out with his father over a buildup of events culminating in the death of a friend He hasn t been home or spoken to his father since Instead he has a thriving art dealer business good friends and an absolute distant for the fuss of the Christmas holidays Though he s a bit cynical at heart he is a good man and when he collides with Tess he is determined to take care of her He knows he has to be careful of her reputation and does everything he can to protect her He is also attracted to her but tries to control himself around herI loved seeing the relationship grow between Alex and Tess He is determined to help and protect her especially from himself He is known for keeping his cool under all circumstances but something about Tess really gets under his skin It was fun seeing him agree to do things with and for her that he never would have done before In spite of her innocence Tess has a way of seeing what people really need and she sees that contrary to what he says Alex really misses his family She s determined to give him a real Christmas because of it And though she knows nothing can come of it Alex finds a way into her heartThings get really interesting when Alex receives a letter from his mother begging him to come home His father is ill and Alex is needed on the estate He s nervous about going home than he will admit and asks Tess to go with him Next thing he knows the entire household is going with Tess no longer the housekeeper but a friend he is helping I loved seeing how they rearranged everyone s roles Once they arrive at Tempeston the reader begins to get the background of the issues between Alex and his father It was fun to see Alex s satisfaction in showing off his success With a few little prods from Tess he makes progress in repairing his relationships with his father and brother The attraction between Tess and Alex grows stronger I loved seeing the way that Tess tries to draw him further into the Christmas preparations Both are fighting the attraction but it is a losing battle Tess doesn t want to miss out on the experience she could have with him so she goes after what she wants Alex doesn t resist too hard but there are still some guilty feelings over what he sees as his less than honorable actions In his attempts to take care of her he makes some rather significant mistakes causing a rift between them How he makes up with her is unusual and almost makes things worse before it gets betterI liked the realistic view of what kind of life Tess could expect as an illegitimate woman Life wasn t easy for women such as her I liked her rescue of Dorcas and Daisy as her kind heart saw a way to help them at the same time they could help her I also enjoyed the look below stairs during the time Tess was acting as housekeeper Alex was also honest about what might happen after they marry
