Teach Me Under the Mistletoe by Kay Springsteen, Book Review
According to Caroline "Kitty" Tyndall's friends, a young lady who's gone two seasons in London with nary a nibble from a prospective suitor is well on the way to spinsterhood. But what's a girl to do when she's never been kissed, and the worldly man she wants regards her as a child?
Hugh McCollum spends his days as a stable hand staying out of trouble and saving for his planned emigration to America. When Lady Caroline asks him to teach her how to kiss so the man she's set her cap for will find her more sophisticated, he knows he should run in the other direction. But when a pretty young woman falls into his arms and begs for his help, what's a red-blooded man to do but oblige?
If learning to kiss leads Kitty to love, will the man of her dreams be the man of her heart?
I love Christmas stories and I also love historical novels, so Teach Me Under the Mistletoe was right up my alley! I thought that Kitty would be my favorite character in this book, but my heart was won over by Hugh. His love for Kitty showed in everything that he did and it didn't hurt that he was very handsome! I loved the way their relationship began and how strong-willed Kitty was. She was determined to catch the man she thought was her dream guy with lessons from an unlikely source; the groom! The further into the book I read the more I wondered how everything would work out. I was truly taken by surprise and it was a pleasant one! I loved the epilogue (I love things all wrapped up at the end) and I want to read more books by author Kay Springsteen!

I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
