    1. This review was posted at My Secret RomanceA not so innocent kiss under the mistletoe leads to a kindling romance both are unable to fight. A wonderfully written novella that will warm you in the coldest of winters.I am such a stupid stupid girl. I found Karen's books long ago and for some reason I held off reading them. I enjoyed this authors writing immensely and can not wait to read more by her now. This book is the second book in the Merry Widows Series. The first book is Lessons in Indiscre [...]


    2. Honestly, the blurb pretty much explains the tale. What makes the story is imagining what these two are going through emotionally as you read. You want so badly for them to find their happy ending, and you know it's right there within their reach. If only one of them would take the first step.My thoughts: Passionate tale about a young man (Damien) who has secretly yearned for a woman he believes he can never have. Damien comes from a family who is of lower class, while the woman he yearns for, C [...]


    3. A short story about Damien who was in love with Celia the widow of his dead best friend and had been depriving himself of her out of respect for the family. Nothing spectacular about the story, just a typical setting of a man lusting after his friend's widow and was afraid to express his feeling. I know, it's one of those been there-done it-and had a hot book cover to prove it kinda story, but I rated it 4 star nonetheless for the crackling sexual tension and blazing love scenes. Damien didn't d [...]


    4. Since his best friend's death, Damien has been doing his best to keep his promise to look after Lawrence's widow. But Damien can no longer bear being so close to a woman he thinks he can never have, and so he plans to leave England until an unexpected kiss under the mistletoe causes them both to reevaluate their relationship.If you like idyllic Christmas stories, this is for you. Everything is pretty much perfect. Damien thinks Celia’s an angel. Celia thinks Damien is much sexier and better hu [...]


    5. had been the simplest and most devastating kiss of her life.Charming, heart-warming, deliciously sensual, this friends-to-lovers novella is just perfect for bringing a little early Christmas cheer!What I enjoyed…Celia and Damien are such endearing characters and, even within the constraints of such a short story, Ms Erickson succeeded in giving them real emotional depth and made me care about them.I really liked Damien from the start. He won me over with his intelligence, his charm, his sense [...]


    6. I've been a fan of Karen Erickson's contemporary books for a while now, so when I saw this historical, I thought I'd give it a try. Let it be know that I'm usually not a fan of historical romance in general, so I'm always surprised when I like one as much as I liked this one.Damien has been in love with his best friends widow, Celia, for a long time now, and it's gotten so bad that he's decided to leave England to get away from the torture of having to see her and not have her. Wanting to see he [...]


    7. I'll always like this story set-up. Knowing the guy pines for the girl who belongs/belonged to someone else is food for my angsty desires. I love feeling the torturous urges and secret glances that usually accompany his need to see her, even though he feels he can never have her.I just wish this novella had been a bit longer. As it stands 67 pages is not enough to satisfy me. However, having looked at Ms Erickson's backlist, I found her Fated series on my TBR list, which I can now push up the li [...]


    8. For a novella (20,000 words) it has a rich story that is fully developed with a wonderful setting which gives the reader a happy Christmas feeling. It is a great way to start off the festive season to get you in a Christmassy mood. The love story is well developed for a novella using the back story to set the scene. The length of the book is perfect at this season to fit into our busy lives. I recommend it to any historical romance lover who would enjoy the extra twist of a Christmas atmosphere. [...]


    9. If you are in the mood for a short story maybe HER CHRISTMAS PLEASURE will work. Enjoyed this sensual Christmas story of a man whose in love with his best friend's widow. Damien is a loyal friend and willing to walk away instead of living with the tormented desires of an impossible match. Nice chemistry.


    10. This was a really sweet little read. For the briefness of the book, I thought the author did a really good job.Because the book was so short, the reader doesn't really get to know the characters in depth, and there's not much character growth. It wasn't really necessary though, since the plot is very straightforward: they've been in love with each other forever and finally find the courage to get together. What did bug me a little though was how the heroine went from seemingly nothing to full bl [...]


    11. I reviewed this for TwoLips Reviews, LLC: Damien Morton has plans to leave the country at the beginning of the New Year. Madly in love with his best friend’s widow, Lady Celia Danver, he feels unworthy of her love. She treats him as a friend of the family and nothing else—until they share a fiery kiss under the mistletoe…Surprised at the passion she feels from a dear friend’s kiss, Celia realizes once is not enough to satisfy her cravings. Damien has awakened emotions she never expected [...]


    12. Her Christmas Pleasure by Karen Erickson, is a short, yummy candy cane of a story. And yes, I did want you to think of that particular holiday treat for a reason!Damien Morton promised his best friend, Lawrence Danver, that he would look after the man's wife, just before Lawrence died. They were, after all, best friends, and it was the honorable thing to do.What Damien hadn't counted on was falling in love with Lady Celia Danver. Hopelessly, irrevocably in love. Or that Lawrence's family would t [...]


    13. Her Christmas Pleasure (Merry Widows #2) by Karen Erickson* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*Celia’s husband, Lawrence was killed two years ago while fighting for his country leaving her with a young son. Over the last couple of years she has become good friends with Damien, Lawrence’s best friend. She never dreamed that an innocent kiss under the mistletoe would leave her wanting more.Damien has been in love with Celia for a long time but he doe [...]


    14. If you’re looking for the perfect way to pass an hour with a glass of wine this Holiday Season look no further. Her Christmas Pleasure is like a Christmas cookie, a little bon-bon, a piece of fudge. It’s short, sweet, and yummy…I didn’t realize when I requested this book that it was a novella. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the length when I opened the ebook…Short doesn’t usually mean good in the Romance genre…It usually means underdeveloped characters I don’t connect to…It m [...]


    15. ***original review posted at Romancing Rakes***Don't judge me! This is probably the 5th holiday themed book I've read this season and I'm going to keep on trucking!Damien Morton, best friend to Lady Celia Danver's deceased husband and lowly servant's son, has been in love with her for quite some time. There's heavy staring, a bit of a half-massed seductive lid thing going on and a lot of blushing, on Celia's part. Maybe a little on Damien's. He's found another job on France with help from Celia' [...]


    16. by Karen Erickson20,000 words, ebook, 67 pagesPublished November 28th 2011 by Carina PressISBN 1426892705 (ISBN13: 9781426892707)Penny's Rating: C+Penny purchased the e-book for this review from Barnes & Noble.If you're looking for a good romantic "quickie" read, this novella is not a bad way to go. I am not always a fan of novella's; quite often the stories are underdeveloped and over too quickly, but in Her Christmas Pleasure, author Karen Erickson, manages to turn out a fair short tale.Da [...]


    17. Karen Erickson's Her Christmas Pleasure is a quick read about two people who haven't admitted they love each other. Damien is a Napoleonic war veteran who has accepted a job in another country. He was Celia's late husband's best friend and has worked/lived with the family his entire life. He seemed to be in that nebulous grey area of not quite a servant, but not born to the family.Celia's mourning period is almost over. She lives with her late husband's family, since her son is the heir. Her hus [...]


    18. ‘Simply magical’ is an apt phrase to describe the beauty found within Karen Erickson’s novella Her Christmas Pleasure. One of the things I love best about this novella is how quickly you become immersed in the lives and feelings of these characters. You don’t get much time to become acquainted with these characters, but the beautiful thing about that is you don’t need to. Erickson magically takes the characters straight to your heart and quickly engages you in their romance. Celia and [...]


    19. Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickDamien has been in love with Celia for well over three years, but knows nothing can ever come of it. Not only is she his best friend's widow, but she is also a lady of quality and he is nothing more than a poor servant's son. Tired of being around her and not being able to be with her, Damien decides to take on a new job that places him outside country once the new year starts.After the death of her husband, Celia grew extremely close to her h [...]


    20. Damien has been desperately in love with his best friend's widow, Celia, for years, but doesn't believe he's worthy of her. Celia, grieving her departed husband, never before saw Damien as a man. Unable to stand to be around Celia, but not with Celia, Damien is leaving the country on the first of the year, but a shared kiss beneath the mistletoe will change things for both of themIf you want electric tension, heat, and a smoking-hot sex scene, well, Her Christmas Pleasure might just be your bag, [...]


    21. Although Lady Celia Danvers catches glimpses of possibly a man in love with her, one kiss under the mistletoe from her deceased husband's best friend, Damien Morton, confirms it. The problem is, she has more than feelings of friendship for him, too and his kiss sends heated sparks through her. Trying to determine if what she feels is real and if his feelings echo hers, Celia persuades him to kiss her once again away from family's eyes. He confesses that he does have strong feelings for her, but [...]


    22. What a lovely little read for a Sunday morning! You know, some people read the paper over coffee? I read a novella. Ms. Erickson definitely had a winning combination with Damian and Celia's chemistry in Her Christmas Pleasure. Even though Damian is the bestie of Celia's departed husband, it doesn't stop his heart from loving her. Even though the whole conflict of the plot arc centers on Damian's inner conflicts. He doesn't feel he's worthy of her love, doesn't feel that she even cares about him, [...]


    23. This was an absolutely charming little story provided by netgalley.There is something heart-warming about a simple story told well, and this fell straight into that category. There are no unbelievable plot twists, no unnecessary characters, just some lovely scenes, some nice sensual touches and one of the best descriptions of unrequited love that I've read.It is a nice little novella, which is in the same series as Lessons in Indiscretion (which has one sexy cover!), but the two are completely u [...]


    24. I'll warn you right off the bat, this novella is short; it's not even 70 pages. But it's a sexy and satisfying read in that small package.Celia is the widow of Damien's best friend. He made a vow to her husband before he died to take care of her. But he never expected to fall in love with her. Damien is the son of servants not nearly good enough, he believes, for a lady like Celia. So after years of loving her in silence, he makes plans to move away. Celia has come to care deeply for Damien, but [...]


    25. Damien has always been in love with his best friend's wife - Celia.

Unfortunately for Damien - this isn't meant to be!With one kiss Celia and Damien shocked by the chemistry between them. Surrounded by family and friends they try and keep their growing passion under control. With a young son to think about Celia is torn - is she betraying her husband [...]


    26. Her Christmas Pleasure was a quick and sweet read. Celia and Damien have a one of a kind friendship and you can tell they have been friends for a long time and care about each other very much. Damien was an interesting character, a perfect gentlemen and very careful when he was around Celia. Which was nice, it's always good to have a close friend like that. Even though he yearned for Celia, he was very loyal to his extended family and to his deceased best friend by keeping his distance and convi [...]


    27. 3 StarsHer Christmas Pleasure is a sweet little historical romance that captured my heart. The romance was so endearing that it left me feeling all gushy inside. I would have enjoyed the book much more if it had been a bit longer and the plot a bit more in depth. Sometimes a short story is perfect the way it is and sometimes it feels incomplete. Although I enjoyed this story, I felt like it was incomplete. Not only did I was more of the story itself I wanted more information about the different [...]


    28. I seem to be on a roll with friends-to-lovers stories these days. This one was a little different in that the male had been the best friend of the female's husband who died. Damien has been in love with Celia for years, but never felt he was good enough to even make a play for her. But he promised Celia's husband on his death bed that he'd make sure Celia and their son were OK. Damien can't handle being able to look but not touch anymore, so he's gotten himself a job out of the country, hoping t [...]


    29. It was short and cramped.Overall it was supposed to come of as sweet but…it reminded me of that pink goo that blows up at children’s parties-the idea is good, it sounds fun, but in the end you are frowning.Also, I am 99% sure I have read a book with the exact same plot and that it was a full novel.I will have to look in to this, because some scenes felt like complete déjà vu. Could it be that the HR authors have become so un-inventive they are repeating themselves?Probably.Sadly.I am almos [...]


    30. I bought this and Lessons in Indiscretion while surfing around Carina Press in search of a book recc'd by a friend. And it was just OK, I'm sorry to say. Plenty of potential, but the characters were a bit flat, and the sex was adequately, rather than hotly, written. Eloisa James writes the best hot historical sex I've yet encountered; it takes some doing to measure up to her chops. (I now realize I was actually looking for the SmartBitches' sizzling book club read Lessons in Seduction - how do I [...]
