    1. He caught her trembling hands Even through her gloves, she felt the jolt of heat Her gaze flew up to fasten on his face He looked intent and unexpectedly gentle A smile turned up one corner of his lips Believe me, your virtue is safe, Miss Farrar It s too bloody cold to take our clothes off She wanted to object to his language and to his brazen mention of undressing but standing here holding his hands, his salty vocabulary was the last of her worries.This book is fluffy, cute, silly, and sweet I [...]

    2. A Sweet Christmas novella without the hullabaloo.I m really enjoying Anna Campbell s novellas and A Pirate for Christmas was sweet with a touching love story that made my little heart sing While it s a wee bit unbelievable, with love at first sight, a smitten Lord and a town turning a blind eye to propriety in the hope of a forced marriage, we get romance without the angst I like this style, and for me it does the perfect job of a novella, giving us the love story in a convenient little package.

    3. Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestWow, this was like one of those made for TV Christmas specials One of the bad ones I ve read a number of Campbell s work at this point, and while she made her name writing controversial nouveau bodice rippers in the mid 2000s, now she just writes slightly smuttier than the norm costume regency novels andis Whatever this is.A PIRATE FOR CHRISTMAS is a love story between a vicar s daughter and an Earl, set during the holiday season There s a donkey, a ton of ter [...]

    4. A Pirate for Christmas by Anna Campbell is a 2015 publication Holiday novellas are so popular and easy to work into your busy Christmas time schedule, when finding time to read can be a challenge This one has such a pretty cover, and the story is light, with only a moderate amount of angst There is a minimal cast of characters, which leaves plenty of time for Lord Channing, a man with quite the reputation as a pirate, and a Vicar s daughter, Bess Farrar to get to know each other The couple engag [...]

    5. Originally posted on The Book NymphoI don t often find a book where I love both of the main characters equally from the start In that sense, this story was just a delight.Bess Farrar is the vicar s spinster daughter no one refers to her that way and she s a force in the town She makes everything work but in the best of ways When Rory Beaton, the new Earl of Channing, arrives following his estranged brother s death, Bess confronts him after repeated attempts to get him engaged with town events go [...]

    6. Another book I am mega late reviewing I finished this the first of January of this year, although I started it in December I am huge fan of Anna Campbell, and while I found this enjoyable, it s not nearly as memorable as my favorites by her It s a good Christmas novella, and it has her distinctive and well developed chemistry between the characters The hero is a ginger, which is definitely a plus for me as I love gingers He s also a bit of a bad boy, but a good hearted sort He s spent most of hi [...]

    7. A Pirate for Christmas is a romantic, fun, passionate Regency novella written by one of the genre s brightest stars I smiled, sighed, and even giggled my way through this holiday tale and, as always, look forward to whatever it is Anna Campbell dreams up next

    8. That wasn t like any Campbell book I ve read I suppose after several years one can expect an author s style to change a bit, but this was dramatically different The dialogue was very stilted as if the whole book was a play being staged Awkward, repetitive and without lyricism The darker elements of Campbell stories that I recall along with a sense of naturalism in the characters responses and actions are completely absent Needless to say, this was disappointing to me Overall, meh.

Read this for 12 Tasks of the Festive Season Task the Fourth The Gift Card Read a book that you either received as a gift or have given as a gift.This woman was meant for him He wasn t sure yet what he felt about it, but the conclusion was inescapable.It s love at first sight for our hero and while I understand using this trope in a novella, it s not my favorite The hero and heroine have about a five minute conversation when the hero decides knows he will be marrying the heroine I didn t feel th [...]

    10. This was a sweet regency romance I do not read a lot of historical so I have a bit of a hard time identifying with the virginal spinster heroines and this one was no different While Bess was funny, she was also a tad annoying in her bossiness I did not really understand why the hero was so enamoured of her at first sight, but it was a novella Rory was also an enigma to me I had a hard time understanding his place in the world except to follow Bess around doing her bidding Maybe being an Earl is [...]

    11. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceA Pirate For Christmas was such a short and sweet romance that I couldn t get enough It starts out with our heroine storming into the manor house, looking for its new master since he has been ignoring her and she needs the use of the donkey for the Christmas play Our heroine doesn t hold anything back and she is quite forceful about it I did like her willful nature, even if it gets her in trouble at times Our hero, has recently taken over w [...]

    12. What a lovely Christmas treat this novella was Anna Campbell has penned a delightful, entertaining and fun romance with the perfect snow covered village setting.Rory is such a likeable hero a handsome, witty, charming and flirtatious Scotsman, with just a hint of devilment in his green eyes Bess is managing, independent and capable, qualities that should annoy a man like Rory, but instead he finds himself both charmed and intrigued by her and deeply attracted It was refreshing to find a hero who [...]

    13. I never thought I d say this, but A Pirate for Christmas is a novella that suffered because it was too long Anna Campbell has recently been releasing a series of novellas, including several holiday themed installments I usually really enjoy Campbell s breezy, light hearted writing style in her novellas, which is the opposite of her dark, angsty tone that dominates in her full length novels.This novella started off really cute It was an insta love theme, but it was well done and fun It was loaded [...]

    14. This was a very cute, incredibly fluffy, syrupy novella I really did enjoy it, even despite occasionally feeling a bit cringey from the over the top gushiness of it all The MC s are both honorable, likeable, and easy to read about The plot is almost entirely free of any tension or major conflicts, so if you enjoy drama and suspense, this is not for you I actually welcomed that right now this was an unstressful, cotton candy of a read I can t give this 5 stars since I just felt like there wasn t [...]

    17. 28 12 There were just way too many stupid pirate jokes references, that immediately annoyed me and since they NEVER STOPPED my sense of humour never returned It was like a romance full of dad jokes and that much of that kind of humour just didn t work for me Within a page I wanted to grab someone hero or author, I would have been happy with either and tell them to shut the Hell up about the damn pirates.I didn t like the way Channing used Bess guilt over needing the donkey to force her into kiss [...]

    23. More reviews available at my blog, Beauty and the Bookworm.A Pirate for Christmas was the holiday romance selection for the Unapologetic Romance Readers group Like most Christmas themed historical romances, it s a novella rather than a full length novel Also like most Christmas themed historical romances and Christmas romances in general, regardless of time period it relies on love at first sight to get everything going probably because the short length doesn t leave as much room for relationshi [...]
