Unwrapping her talent for creating “scintillating wit and heart-stopping sensuality” (Library Journal ), Sabrina Jeffries gives readers a gift to cherish: a touching new novel of an unexpected Christmas reunion—sparked by a cunning ruse, family secrets, and the mysterious ways of the heart. Dear Sir, . . . I feel I should inform you that your mother is very ill. If you wish to see her before it is too late, you should come at once. Sincerely, Mrs. Camilla Stuart Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has led an unabashed rogue’s life, letting no woman near his heart. Inexplicably abandoned as a child to be raised by distant relatives, he never forgave his parents, refusing to read any of his mother’s letters after his father’s death. Then came a letter that shook his resolve. A Christmas visit to Montcliff might prove his last chance to discover the truth of his past, and come to terms with the stranger he calls “Mother.” But two surprises await him at Montcliff. His mother is perfectly healthy, nowhere near a deathbed, as her meddling lady’s companion led him to believe. The second is Camilla Stuart herself, a lively vicar’s widow, too bright and beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce. Though she alone is reason enough to prolong his stay, he is soon faced with other tantalizing riddles: What secrets lie in his mother’s past to explain his childhood abandonment? Why is the captivating Mrs. Stuart so determined to mend the breach between mother and son? Meanwhile, Camilla herself is caught up in love’s complications since the arrival of the irresistible earl. As his bold flirtation and suggestive whispers draw her dangerously close, can anything protect her vulnerable heart? If they are destined to share real happiness, there must be honesty between them—yet telling him the truth about her own life may shatter that chance. None of them can predict the startling revelations to come. Or the secrets, both heartening and shocking, divulged between a mother and son, and between two lovers haunted by their respective pasts, that will make Christmas night at Montcliff one to remember—and the glorious night after, one to treasure for a lifetime.

Twas the Night After Christmas bridges two series together, "Helliions of Halstead Hall" and "The Duke's Men". After recently reading the first book in the Dukes Men series, I was really excited to read this story. It does take place before the first one begins where we do see a involvement Of Domin...

4.0 'Twas the Night After Christmas
Posted on my blog I Heart RomanceThis is the second time that I read this story and I am amazed at how touched I still am with it. In fact, certain parts of the book have brought me to tears. Normally, I am not a fan of reading about children in the books that I read but the presence of the child ...

3.5 'Twas the Night After Christmas [Review]
I picked this book as my first Christmas read of the season because it had been on my TBR since last Christmas. I did find Pierce annoying on a couple of occasions, but overall I liked him. I really admired Camilla. She had a positive view of the world despite a really tough life and an unsatisfy...

2.5 'Twas the Night After Christmas (Hellions of Halstead Hall, #6) by Sabrina Jeffries
8/07 - This was just above average, 2.5 stars really. I didn't really feel any sexual tension between Pierce and Camilla and in all 354 pages there was only 1.5 sex scenes (the first was interrupted before anyone got naked). I think Jeffries did too much of a good job at describing Camilla as a do...
