A Very Special Christmas

Including A CHRISTMAS BRIDE and Christmas Stories from UNDER THE MISTLETOE By Mary Balogh



Revisit the magic of the classic Christmas stories from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh together for the first time in one volume.

Under the Mistletoe In A Family Christmas, an estranged husband and wife make an unexpected connection—and an illuminating discovery—during the holiday season.

The Star of Bethlehem is a lost diamond ring causing a riff in an already troubled marriage until a servant solves not one mystery but three surrounding its disappearance.

The Best Gift can come at the most unexpected moments, especially for a lonesome teacher enlisted over the holidays to chaperon the niece of a notorious rake.

Playing House finds an impoverished young woman longing to celebrate just one last, joyous Christmas before she and her orphaned siblings are separated forever.

And in No Room at the Inn, a winter storm on Christmas Eve brings a young couple in from the cold, desperately in need of warmth and shelter for their unborn child.

A Christmas BrideA very wealthy Edgar Downes has promised his aging father to finally take a bride—specifically, to wed a titled lady by Christmas. London is full of pretty, proper, and eligible misses, but it’s the widow Helena, Lady Stapleton, in a shocking red dress, who captures Edgar’s attention. Helena is intrigued by the seductive stranger—but he’s simply not in her class. Marriage, of course, would never do. But in a season of miracles, something wondrous is about to happen.
