The Size of the Scandal

Jillian Chantal gifts readers with a wonderfully sweet seasonal story. It isn't really the holidays for me until the Holiday historicals come out and this one made me extremely happy. Charlotte Greystone was so easy to like I mean really the moment she opens her mouth and inserts her slippered foot she won me over and I couldn't wait to see how she was going to handle the situation she found herself in. I don't want to give too much away with my review so I will remain a little secretive with my description of the hero. He swept me off my feet as sure as he did the heroine when he came to her rescue and with every scene he stole my heart a little more. The other characters in this short story are just as engaging and I'd love to see one or more of them make a reappearance in an upcoming adventure. If you enjoy a light and lively, sweet seasonal treat this is a great choice.

After learning of her betrothal to a virtual stranger Charlotte Greystone impulsively runs away from home. The problem is she hasn't thought anything out and now she's stranded and has no ability to make her own way. when a handsome man saves her and returns her to safety. But when he turns out to be her mysterious future husband Charlotte spends the holiday waiting for the next disaster to strike.

Book Blurb for The Size of the Scandal

Charlotte Greystone can’t seem to stay out of trouble. When her father betroths her to a man she hasn’t seen in almost ten years, she runs away. Never mind that it’s days before Christmas and she has no survival skills.

When she’s almost crushed by hunters on horseback, a handsome man on a black stallion comes to her rescue. Not thinking of the scandal of being alone with a strange man, she allows him to assist her in returning to her home.

The next day, Charlotte is appalled when the butler announces her betrothed—the same man she shared a horse with the day before. Terrified he will tell her father of her behavior or cause an even bigger scandal by breaking off the engagement, Charlotte is knocked off-kilter—and stays that way as she spends the hours until Christmas trying to understand the man.
