Once Upon a Regency Christmas: On a Winter's EveMarriage Made at ChristmasCinderella's Perfect Christmas (Penniless Lords) - Louise Allen,Sophia James,Annie Burrows

The Once upon idea kinda falls flat but the stories aren't bad.

 

The first story "On a Winter's Eve" by Louise Allen is a story of a showbound Christmas with an escaped turkey. Features a clever woman who made money despite her spendthrift husband, and pretending to be poor to try to avoid a marriage for her cash not her self, which almost backfires.

 

Marriage Made at Christmas by Sophia James is all about a mistaken identity and assumption, with a side order of tortured childhood past.  Could possibly have been better as a full book, well spiced with crazy though.

 

Cinderella's Perfect Christmas by Annie Burrows, not sure if he was poor or beset upon.  Man intrudes on Cinderella/ Alice Waverly who is enjoying time off from dealing with her demanding family to have a well-earned rest with two of the servants when Captain Jack Grayling hammers on the door with two children.  There felt like a lot of things were unresolved by the end.

The Many Sins of Cris de Feaux
The Many Sins of Cris de Feaux - Louise ... The Many Sins of Cris de Feaux - Louise Allen Crispin de Feaux, Marquess of Avenmore finds himself at sea and struggling to get to land. Trying to outpace his problems didn't work and now he's in trouble, but he's rescued by Tamsyn Perowne whose husband was a smuggler. He's intrigued by her but she would be an unsuitable bride, his head can acknowledge this but his heart is saying differently and he's conflicted. He also finds that she heeds his help, but will only accept it on her terms.

Smart and funny I enjoyed it.

His Christmas Countess
His Christmas Countess - Louise Allen His Christmas Countess - Louise Allen light, Chrismassy read.

Grant Rivers has already been delayed by a blow to the head from getting back to his dying grandfather. Now his horse is lame and the bothy he shelters in has an inhabitant, a woman giving birth. He helps her and when two people pass he takes the opportunity to marry her by Scottish convention.

Now they have to find a way to live with each other.

It's an interesting story, fairly predictable but the two of them work well together.
