The best gifts arrive in the most unexpected packages in this charming holiday Regency romance from RITA Award-winning author Barbara Metzger. Although she was born into the ancien regime, Juneclaire Beaumont now lives as a poor relation—until a crisis sends her packing. But the road to London is not easy—and she must take shelter in a stable with a handsome, scowling stranger, also in a predicament. He could take advantage of the situation—but behaves as a gentleman. The ton, however, would never believe the rakish Earl of St. Cloud could act the nobleman for a moment, let alone a whole night. But he will prove them wrong: after Juneclaire slips out of town, the earl will spend the twelve days of Christmas on a neck-or-nothing ride to find her...

I would gladly give this book five stars for the first one half. It absolutely drew me in with a great hero and heroine - mismatched though they were. He's the hard nosed rake Earl St. Cloud aka as Devil St. Cloud and she's the innocent young lady, Juneclaire Beaumont, he finds walking alongside the road with Pansy all wrapped up in a baby blanket. Hilarious! He thinks she looks like a Madonna and she's afraid to allow him to give her a lift. He's just had a violent encounter with highwaymen who took all his valuables. She's had enough of being a drudge to her hateful relatives and when Pansy was threatened, It. Was. Simply. The. Last. Straw. Finally, he persuades her that he means her no harm and he simply can't allow her to walk to the next town. He introduces himself as Merry and when he learns she doesn't want to be called Juneclaire, he calls her Junco.

When St. Cloud pressed Junco to ride with him, he never imagined she would turn out to be a gently bred lady for whom he would feel bound to offer if he's unable to keep it a secret that they have traveled together without a chaperone. They have an adventurous night in a barn, he offers for her, but then she runs away rather than have him feel he must marry her. This is where the story began to go downhill and never seemed to come about until toward the very end.

Once they become separated and he attempts to find her, it appears as though they will be forever passing in the night so to speak. Once he arrives at his estate, we have to encounter and deal with all the shenanigans involving his nutty relatives including, a ghost - or perhaps not a ghost, his blind dowager grandma who is a cane thumper, his mother who is forever crying, and so forth and so on. Ugh. I can handle a little bit of this if there's enough humor laced through, but I became bored really fast.

A five star book that turned into a three star.

I wish there were 6 stars! I can't say enough about this book! I have not enjoyed a regency romp like this in ages! This is the best Metzger tale and of what I have read of hers absolutely the best she has written. You can laugh, but I bought this on the description and didn't realize who the author was - if I had I would not have gotten it as the other two books I had of hers were terrible. I could not reconcile the raves for those books to the insipidity of them. I couldn't believe my eyes when I began reading this, and had to keep checking to see if the author was really the same....this is a true gem that will keep you laughing (out loud and loudly!) groaning, and wishing you could read faster and faster, then never want it to end. You will find yourself having to catch your breath when you finish. The characters are hilarious, endearing, annoying, and all together delightful. The pace this moves at and the timing are stellar. It might remind you of movies like Arsenic and Old Lace, Bringing Up Baby, Roger Rabbit and the Marx brothers or it may simply remind you that the bird in the bush is worth the pig in hand...did I really write that? Don't pass this up, you will regret it!

Unwillingly on his way home for Christmas to deal with his perpetually sobbing mother, family hangers-on, and stories that ghosts are inhabiting the Priory, Satan St. Cloud is then set upon by highwaymen. He is not having a good day. But his luck changes when he meets Juneclaire walking along the road. Juneclaire, a daughter of the ancien regime, had been spurred into sudden flight from her home by her aunt's threat to turn her pet, Pansy, into dinner.

I think all Metzger fans will enjoy this and those new to Metzger should too. There are all kinds of crazy goings-on, the usual wacky characters, humor and wit, twists and turns galore. It left me with a smile on my face.

Enjoy your reading! :)

Thank you Barbara Metzger for this novel . . . it cheered me up after one of the worst Christmas' we've had in years. (When families' thoughtless comments abide) . . . I wish I had read it on Christmas Night!

A heartwarming, sweet romance which brings two of the most unlikely h/h's together ever . . . not to mention the humor, whether outright laughter abides or the tongue-in-cheek kind when it comes to other family members.

Thank goodness for Pansy and synchronicity!

I have nothing but praise for this book. I'll be revisiting it more than once each year along with Christmas night.

The basic setup is classic: plucky young woman with parents gone being used as a drudge by her relatives,
leaves and is ``compromised'' by a likable Earl, who out of honor offers marriage. This said, there are a
number of subplots (centered on highwaymen, a hidden Uncle, a bunch of lowlife relatives of the Earl,
mistaken identities, a pig, and the Earl's likeable grandmother). All in all this is very well-written and enjoyable romance.

It was clear from early on (as it usually is) that everythign would work out for Merry (the Earl) and Junco (the heroine),
but the excellance of the story-tellying on how they get from meeting to happily ever after is what make this a great
book.

You can never go wrong with a Metzger novel. The characters are always engaging and charming. And there are such funny and endearing moments in all of them.

Juneclaire has had a rather dreary upbringing as an orphan (poor relation) in a relative's home. But one Christmas she must escape - and she does -- right into the arms of rake. Compromised by spending an innocent night with him in the stable where they are trapped, the Earl of St. Cloud honorably asks for her hand. But Juneclaire does not want to trap him into marriage and "Merry" St. Cloud spends the rest of the Christmas season trying to find this wayward waif that he has fallen madly in love with (as she has with him).

Other amusing situations occur to make this a wonderful holiday romp. Light, fun reading!

This is a slapstick comedy with some funny parts. The scenarios were too ridiculous for my taste. I enjoyed the first half of the book and would have preferred it not have included the "ghost", the many extraneous characters, and the many modern phrases. This just didn't work for me but it may be enjoyable for others.
