Early Review: Respect for Christmas by Grace Burrowes

Nov 18, 2018

A former courtesan and a new baron have a most unlikely Christmas in this special novella from the New York Times bestselling author of My One and Only Duke.

Henrietta Whitlow is leaving behind the life of a very successful courtesan in hopes of making peace with her family in the shires. Michael Brenner's family all but ignore him, despite his shiny new baronial title, and his errand along the Oxford road isn't half so benign as Henrietta's. While trying to settle a debt of honor involving Henrietta, Michael instead loses his heart and comes to understand the true meaning of holiday spirit.


I enjoyed this short story. Burrowes brings characters to life with rich detail. Henrietta is true to herself and is willing to make her own way in life. Michael has had to work hard and can see things differently as the new baron. Together they pave their own way. Respect for Christmas is a great, cute Christmas read. I would recommend if you are looking for a quick historical read.
