Miss Lydia Charingford has lived through her own scandal and had come out with no one knowing anything. Then she will meet up with the man that had been in that room with her parents five years ago who knew the truth of her pregnancy. She will find out that Grantham will not tell anyone but a wager will be made between them.
Doctor Jonas Grantham has wanted Lydia for over a year but he had gotten nowhere with her. She does not like him but Jonas will find a way for them to spend time together so he could try to win her over.
A Kiss for Midwinter is a 1.5 novella in the series Brothers Sinister by Courtney Milan. First off I really loved this novella. It had been a while since I read the previous books to this series (The Governess Affaire and The Duchess War) so I decided to read them again to get back into the series. That prepared me for Lydia who was a very cheerful girl except she really wasn’t, she was faking that cheer to pretend to be alright. She doesn’t realize that she has suppressed all those emotions until Doctor Jonas Grantham reminds her of that time in her life. Now even though it was hard for Lydia to realize I liked that Jonas was there to see the truth. I liked the real Lydia much better who wasn’t just this cheerful girl that seemed naive. Then there was Jonas. He was sarcastic and had a strange sense of humor but he was a very good man. He cared for his patients and went out of his way to help them. I liked how he went about spending time with Lydia and also that he thought her strong, not weak as some might have thought.
When I checked out these first three books/novellas to the series I also checked out the rest that have come out, which are the book from two to five. Next I will be reading about Oliver Marshall in The Heiress Effect which I have been wanting to read.
