Bess Farrar was the vicar’s daughter and was used to helping the villagers in the small town. She will find herself with a problem when the new earl comes to their town as he was not writing her any reply’s to her letters. Bess will take it upon herself and meet the new earl only to be shocked at the instant attraction to him.
Lord Channing, Rory, just inherited his brothers earldom. He liked his life as a captain but knew that his life had to change. Rory will do his duty and take over. He will find that the task will not be such a hardship especially when he meets Bess.
A Pirate for Christmas is a novella from Anna Campbell. I really liked this novella. I thought that it was a fun Christmas story filled with lust, love, and some humor.
The character of Bess was a strong woman as she helped everyone in the village, but there is a sensual side to Bess. That side was not know to her until she meets Rory. When it comes to Rory she is unsure, although she has no need to be unsure of Rory’s feelings. So then there is the character of Rory who was a man that was not used to the privileged life. I liked that about him because he was not stuck up and had a good sense of humor. He was also very sensual when it comes to Bess.
This lust which is really love between the characters was sweet throughout the book. Its funny that with the books that I have read from Campbell the scenes are very steamy, but this was almost PG rated between them. That was not a problem for me. I liked that in this novella a romance builds.
So, I decided to keep going with Anna Campbell’s books and I will be reading The Seduction of Lord Stone next.
