Kleypas Story is a repeat but excellent! Dec 19 2006
By Pio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book for the Kleypas story and have not read the Hooper story. I really liked the Kleypas story "Surrender" about a very determined Irish man in the late 1800's who makes it out of the slums of Boston and marries the very sheltered daughter of a Boston Brahmin family who he meets through her brother, his college friend. He tells himself he wants her because she represents his finally "making it to the top" and doesn't admit to even himself that he married her because he loves her. At the same time, he doesn't feel good enough for her and feels firmly caught between two distant strata of society. His wife, on the other hand, doesn't care about his origins but is at first out of her depth trying to live with this intense, torn man. It's a great story and I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't already read it in a previous anthology of Kleypas' called A CHRISTMAS PRESENT (other authoresses were Loretta Chase and Judith French). I understand the decision to republish this story in another Christmas grouping but it is nevertheless irritating how often it is done. So FYI if someone out there has already read other Kleypas anthologies and doesn't remember which ones, you might have already read this story. This book costs quite a lot to find out that you have already read half of it before.

Two great historical romances -- a nice find... Jan. 28 2007
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Gifts of Love by Kay Hooper and Lisa Kleypas are two great Christmas Historical romance stories. Holiday Spirit by Kay Hooper's tells the story/mystery of two romances. The first couple broke their engagement over lies and the second couple are ghosts.... Surrender, Lisa Kleypas tells the story of conflict of Irish and aristocratic Bostonians. This story was a about married couple who had to grow into their love. A great stories anytime of the year. I love Kleypas but now I am off to find more by Hooper.

Pleasant Quick Read Nov. 19 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Surrender" BY Lisa Kleypas took place in the late 1800's was about Jason Moran a poor Irish Immigrant who strives for acceptance in an afluient Boston community he isn't accepted in. He marrys Laura Prescott a sweet innocent lady of that Boston community. His insecurities about his background torture him and cause horendous trials in their marriage, only Laura can help him with her unconditional love.

This was a very well written strong story that I wished would have been longer with more detail but it isn't to be unfortunately. I was able to download this free on line but I would have gladly paid a couple of dollars for it.

Holiday Spirit By Kay Hooper was a story about two pairs of lovers one in the current time and a ghostly pair in the past. Both couples have a misunderstanding making their situation bring on much heartache.

The grandmother of the most current couple interfers trying to get the couple together while the couple itself help resolve the mystery of the ghosts death.

I'm not much into the ghostly romance novels but this one was worth reading. Enjoy
A perfect Stocking Stuffer!!! (SOME SLIGHT SPOILERS) Dec 5 2014

What a wonderful way to begin your Christmas Season. I am a huge fan of Lisa Kleypas and could not believe I had never saw this book before. Let this be a lesson to others. If you have a favorite author you can never check too often to see if certain novels show up around the season. Kay Hooper is a new author for me but a very pleasant surprise. The first story begins with her but I must confess I flipped through my Kindle until I found LK's story and read hers first. LOL

Holiday Spirit (KH) This story was special because it has the idea of the Christmas Carol in mind but it is not a visit from the spirits of past, present, and future that come to visit. The idea is a meddling old lady who wants her granddaughter's happiness. She has a house party over the holidays at Wingate Castle (the family home). The snow storm brewing outside is sure to keep people trapped inside for the weeks to come. The Countess of Ware is counting on it because she has invited a particular guest with intent. Antonia jilted her fiancée 2 years prior but it is clear to all after turning down all other proposal's that there is only one man who lives in her heart.

Why did she let him go? This is the question because it is obvious that the Duke of Lyonshall has not yet given up hope. The two have not spoken since the morning of her refusal and then she cowardly runs from London without any further words. That was the part that troubled me because it seemed such a waste these two years that they spent apart. I felt the h would have wanted to hear from his own mouth and not trust the word of a stranger or have no faith in him seemed stupid to me.

The twist though that made this original was the castle has mysteries galore and along with it it's own ghosts rattling around. It was a little romantic and magical to watch what slowly revealed itself. In the end it was clearly fate that brought all of the events to unfold. A bit tragic and sad but not in vain. There is some love scenes that take place but not graphic. A very sweet tender story that makes you believe that love can conquer all if you listen with your heart and not your head.

Surrender (LK) I have loved this authors writing for years and am so thrilled she has decided to start writing some Historical Romances again. Thank you for that LK!! Jason Moran is a self made man coming from a very humble beginning. He has struggled for years to separate himself from his Irish heritage. In order to live in the world he wants to live in he has to put that all behind him. He meets Miss Laura Prescott when she is 15 years old when he travels with his friend Hale from Harvard. Laura is his younger sister. He swears that very night that he is going to make Laura his wife in the future.

This brings us to the present, 5 years have went by and the two have been married for two months. They're having a bit of trouble adjusting to one another. That is a bit of an understatement because Jason comes off as a cruel, unfeeling Bastard in the beginning. It is a talk with Hale that brings to light some misunderstandings because try as he might Jason still allows past prejudices to cloud his judgments. Now he realizes how wrong he's been and decides he must start a new to woo his wife.

Laura is innocent and scared of her marriage and isn't sure what to make of her husbands decision to go to her sisters for a couple weeks to spend time together. Can she set her fear aside and allow her husband to show her what she's been missing? Her own mother speaks of men as the lowest forms of life and her father is constantly choosing other lovers to share his bed. What makes Jason any different? It is all done with the flare and finesse that only Lisa Kleypas can provide. Even when the couple are at odds and have disagreements they are still together in other aspects. Her characters very often do not hold grudges as you read in other books.

They may not agree but they are still there for each other when it counts and that is how it should be in a loving relationship. There are some love scenes but they are not overly graphic just sweetly and gently written. I truly felt Holiday cheer after reading both of these short stories and am patiently waiting another in the mail. Seasons Greetings!!

I really liked how Kay used the ghosts to help the couple realize how much they loved each other. I also liked Lisa's story where love and passion were more important than money or social standing.
