Tarnished Rose of the Court By Amanda McCabe

BOUND BY ROYAL COMMAND! A dangerous mission at Queen Elizabeth's bidding is Celia Sutton's chance to erase the taint of her brother's treason. Her life is at risk if she's discovered - and so is her heart when she learns her co-conspirator is also her one-time seducer: brooding and mysterious John Brandon! John can't believe the change in Celia - what's happened to the carefree English rose she once was? Leaving Celia was the only thing to do, but now guilt tears at his soul. He has to heal the sadness in her past, and he's not above using anything - from expert seduction to royal favours - to achieve his goal...
My thoughts:
I read TheWinter Queen  in 2010 and really enjoyed the characters  in the book we briefly meet Celia Sutton . In Tarnished Rose we find out more about Celia , She runs in to her lost love John and is sent away on a misson for the Queen  with John Brandon of course and finds out that her heart still belongs to him.  Lots of hot steamy scenes in this one. This is the second book in McCabe's Tudor Queens series   If you collect Tudor historical  romances be sure to pick this edition up.

The Christmas Pony By Melody Carlson

 Summary:Eight-year-old Lucy Turnbull knew better than to wish for a pony that Christmas in 1937. Her mother had assured her in no uncertain terms that asking for a pony was the same as asking for the moon. Besides, the only extra mouths they needed at their boarding house were the paying kind. But when an interesting pair of strangers comes to town, Lucy starts to believe her Christmas wishes might just come true after all.
 My Thoughts:
A very sweet and short novel  , the book was a very easy and fast read and suitable for  preteens to enjoy as well.   I read this book in one day  to me it sort of had that Liltte House feeling to it. 
Great little holiday book to enjoy during the stressful days of December to hlp you remember the real meaning of Christmas. * Book has been provided courtesy of Baker Publishing Group and Graf-Martin Communications, Inc.
