The Marquis of Wythebury, is expecting an ordinary Christmastide at Hurst—until he is set upon by a beautiful miss who takes him to task for not allowing his young nephews to play outside. In his mind, a five and seven year old needn’t get chilled in the snow; better to plop them in front of the fire with a book. Few people have ever been brave enough to challenge him over anything, much less the rearing of his wards. The cheeky Miss Prim has no such compunction. No matter how fetching he finds her, he can’t give in to his attraction…for she is the sister of his best friend.
Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about him kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play.

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis is a quick read you are sure to enjoy, especially if you are following along with the series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I have definitely enjoyed and would recommend reading them in order.
This holiday read is Lillian’s love story. She’s the perfect mixture of playful and strong willed. She hadn’t met anyone who has caught her attentions quite like the Marquis of Wythebury has, but she has no intention of falling in love with a serious-minded man. The Marquis has got a little problem on his hands and it’s not his two nephews. Lillian has beautiful blue eyes and a challenging demeanor. He’s all he’s been able to think about his he has arrived at Hurst and now that he’s realized he wants to marry her, she’s said no. However, you can’t really blame her since he hadn’t really asked her in the first place.
True to The Heirs Club books, this story kept to the time it was set in. It also had just the right amount of mischief and romance. I love the way Amelia Grey’s characters get under your skin in a matter of pages. Please also note that I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. (5 stars)
