A Christmas Waltz (Christmas #3) by Jane Goodger (Goodreads Author)

To Lady Amelia Wellesley, it seems utterly romantic to surprise her dashing fiancé at his home in Texas so the two can marry by Christmas. But Amelia’s surprise goes awry when Carson Kitteridge calls off their wedding as soon as she arrives, leaving Amelia in disgrace…

With nowhere to turn, Amelia finds an unlikely savior in Carson’s brother, Dr. Boone Kitteridge. Boone offers to marry Amelia, sparing her the shame of returning to England unwed. But Boone isn’t just protecting Amelia’s honor; secretly, he finds her irresistible, and the thought of indulging his desire for her is too tempting to ignore. As Boone and Amelia forge a fragile bond, something goes terribly wrong—and it will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle for Amelia to discover who she is destined to love…

I can't say I liked this book it was alright. I've read all three in this series and not sure if it's the books or the authors style of writing I don't like. I'll start with Amelia this is where my problems are. Just to start you don't travel half way around the world when your "fiance" hasn't sent for you. When she gets to Texas and finds that everything Carson said was a lie she still believes that he's the man that he pretends to be. Amelia admits that she know he lied about most of the stuff he said in London yet that doesn't set off warning bells in her head. She believes the new lies which just makes her look very dumb. Carson has a moment of goodness when he comes into Amelia's room and tells her about Boone's past and that he was leaving that was a touching moment. When Amelia wakes up she completely seems to forget that he said he was leaving and is surprised by the news. When Boone and Amelia go back to London they go to a ball. Boone tells her he is very nervous and when they attend the ball Amelia spends no time with Boone where she should be. Amelia spends the whole night dancing with other men she doesn't seem to care about anyone but herself most of the time. Boone really needed her and all she thought about was herself. I didn't really like Amelia but I did like Boone very much. Boone had less experence than she did when it came to sex and Amelia was his first kiss this is different from any book I've read and it just made to like Boone even more. Boone had a horrible childhood which explanes alot about why he puts up with Carson.
