    1. Manda Collins spent her teen years wishing she d been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books An affinity for books led to a graduate degree in English, followed by another in Librarianship By day, she works as an academic librarian at a small liberal arts college, where she teaches college students how to navigate the tangled world of academic research A native of coastal Alabama, Manda lives in the house her mother grew up in with two cats, sometimes a dog, sometimes her sister, and always lots of books.

    2. Sir Lucien Blakemore, has hesitated for quite some time to accept his cousin's invite to a Christmas party, but this year, he decided to go, because the woman he wants to be near during the season is with her family, Miss Winifred Nightingale. Winnie is a governess, and has joined her sister in a local holiday party. The one man she least expected to run into, a man that is one of her closest friends, Lucien, Blakemore. From the first moment of Winnie coming to this house party, there is a bit o [...]

    3. I don't think this author is for me. I just don't like the writing style. It is very literal and straightforward so some may enjoy it, but I like a little "art" in my stories and enjoy imagery and unique descriptions of settings, emotions, and characters.This story is very Christmassy and takes place during a Christmas party. The heroine, Winnie, is a governess, and the hero, Lucien, is a baronet. Someone begins threatening Winnie, and Sir Lucien, who had become friends with Winnie before the st [...]

    4. This novella features two secondary characters introduced in When Dukes Say I Do (Trevor and Isabella’s story), the first book in Manda Collins’s Wicked Widows series. Lucien is Trevor’s best friend and Winifred (Winnie) is governess to Trevor’s two young sisters.Lucien is such a likeable hero…handsome, charming, witty and inherently decent. He has a way of putting people at ease, as he does the shy, stuttering Miss Hawthorn.It was a sign of Sir Lucien’s kind nature that the young la [...]

    5. Once Upon a Christmas Kiss is a sweet holiday-themed novella that acts as the conclusion to Manda Collins's Wicked Widows series. I read the first book (Why Dukes Say I Do) last year and remember enjoying it. So I was excited to see it available on Netgalley especially because I have a thing for holiday historical romances.The premise of this book is that a baronet, Sir Lucien Blakemore, reluctantly attends a Christmas party at his cousin's house, but is happy to discover that the last person he [...]

    6. A very sweet historical romance holiday novella, Once Upon a Christmas Kiss was a lovely read that I quite enjoyed.Both characters were likable. Winifred was independent and and overall lovely heroine. Her reservations about marrying Lucien were frustrating but understandable, so they didn't bother me too much Lucien was super sweet and simply adorable. He was determined to convince Winifred to marry him and protect her from the person threatening her. I liked them both.The romance was great. Wi [...]

    7. A sassy and fun historical romance made even more engaging by a festive holiday house party as its backdrop. This was my first time reading the author's books and also my first book of the series that just so happens to be book #3.5. Not a problem and from what I could tell, its only loosely connected to book one, but I'm not really sure because it was told in such a way that it can standalone easily. The story was rather a fun surprise since I wasn't expecting it to offer a bit of a mystery ble [...]

    8. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of holiday themed novels, especially romances. They're just all kinds of adorable. So when I came across this holiday themed novella, I thought to myself "Why yes, I am ready for Christmas." It's October after all, I'm sure Costco will breaking out the Christmas decorations soon, if not already.When Sir Lucien Blakemore decides to accept his cousin's invitation to celebrate Christmas he does so mainly because his neighbour's governess will be elsewhere for the [...]

    9. A Christmas House Party with intrigue, mysterious happenings, a gorgeous "off limits" governess & a smitten hero with a dash seasonal naughtiness! I do love Christmas!Miss Winnie Nightfall is in HADES, what she thought would be a happy holiday with her sister, Cordy, was dashed as they have been invited by Lord & Lady Hurst holiday party.

    11. What a fun, historical Christmas story this is. Set in another time and place, we meet Winifred and Lucian at a Christmas gathering in the country home of Lucian's friend. This story is all manners and propriety, or lack thereof. Winnie and her sister were orphaned and left destitute but were able to make livings as a governess and school teacher. While this doesn't make them "hired hands," it does consign them to a lower level of society than their wealthy friends. When someone appears to be wa [...]

    12. This book was sweet and full of mischief and I loved it. Lucien I loved him and his nature, "I am shocked, Miss Winifred!" he said in mock surprise. "Though if I were to invite anyone into my bedchamber," he said confidentially, "it would be you." Winnie she is all ladylike and proper but when it comes to Lucien the girl can be a tad bit wanton, "will you carry me upstairs now, please?" she asked as the others noisily made their way from the drawing room. In a low voice, she added, "there is som [...]

    13. A sweet story with a touch of intrigue and a heaping of romance.Once Upon a Christmas Kiss was a wonderful story about Winnie, a governess for the wealthy, and Lucien, a lord of great repute. Although these two had been acquainted prior to his cousin's Christmas party, it wasn't until the holiday event that they were granted with the pleasure of knowing one another in a more intimate way. They were helpless against the growing attraction they felt and against the feelings of deep affection they [...]

    14. I am a big fan of Manda Collins’s deft blend of mystery and romance, and I have wanted to see Winifred Nightingale and Lucien Blakemore get an HEA since I first read Why Dukes Say I Do. I’m also a fan of governess-as-heroine books, and Christmas romance novellas are one of my favorite parts of the holidays. Add great dialogue and a mistletoe scene (Did I mention I love mistletoe scenes?) and the result is a winner. Once Upon a Christmas Kiss with its vulnerable heroine, gallant hero, and Chr [...]

    15. A perfectly lovely novella, especially for Christmas. A historical romance set in the middle of a Christmas house party and friendship is allowed to blossom into something more. A lovely quick read that got me in the festive spirit!

    16. " Once Upon a Christmas Kiss" was a delightfully sweet Christmas themed romance novella with engaging Characters and a secondary mystery plot line,that was hard to put down! Sir Lucian Blakemore usually declined his cousins invitation to his yearly Christmas house party and stays home since the two thing that he cares about the most to him are his music and Winifred nightingale , but having finished his recent musical piece and Winifred Nightinghale , the governess to his freind and Neighbors ch [...]

    17. 3.5 stars; Let me tell you, this book was a nice surprise-not-so-surprised novella for me, since I've basically been waiting for Lucien and Winnie to have their happily ever after since Why Dukes Say I  Do (book 1)!  As seen in my review for Why Dukes Say I Do, I  quickly fell in love with Lucien's hilariously winning personality and since this, “If you tell me that he, too, as engaged a governess with a bird name I will have to adapt a child so that I can hire one as well,” Trevor’s fr [...]

    18. This was one of the sweetest books that I’ve ever read. I totally loved Winifred and Lucien’s romance. It was the most surprisingly good hearted book that I’ve read all year long. The chemistry between Winifred and Lucien was so rich and spicy that you really could see these two characters being together.I like that the action takes place at Lucien’s cousin’s estate. Lucien’s cousin has gotten married and is spending Christmas at this estate. This estate is very picturesque. It gives [...]

    19. Giving in to requests to join the Christmas holidays at his cousin's home, after years of nixing the invite, Lucien Blakemore is pleasantly surprised to find that miss Winifred Nightingale has also been invited for the festivities along with her local school marm sister. Lucien and Winifred are acquainted as neighbors. Lucien lives in the home next door to where Winnie is governess and the pair have always gotten on rather well.As soon as Winnie, the governess and he sister, a teacher are introd [...]

    20. Sir Lucien Blakewell has been invited to his cousin’s country estate in Yorkshire for Christmas. Jeremy, Lord Hurst and his wife, Helen, have invited a number of friends and neighbors to join them with a total of 14 guests. Two sisters have been included in the party. One is Miss Winifred (Winnie) Nightingale who is the governess to Lucien’s neighbor, the Duke of Ormand. Having met her before, Lucien and Winnie have developed a friendship of sorts. Winnie's sister is Miss Cordelia Nightingal [...]

    21. This is one of those stories that when I requested it, I wasn't aware that it was part of an on-going series. However, even with that, this novella was written in such a way that it could be considered a "stand alone" story. I was not confused about the relationship between the characters, nor did I feel like I was "missing something" that would have been gained by reading the other novels. Based on this story alone, I would read more by this author. I enjoyed everything about this novella. From [...]

    22. I didn't realize this was a novella when I requested it from NetGalley. I keep thinking that I'll like Manda Collins but her stories have never really gotten above "Meh" for me. Until this one. I really liked this story. I was grateful that Sir Lucien Blakewell and Miss Winifred Nightingale were given a really complete back story. I got about 60 pages into it and was thinking about how most short stories weren't so thorough about establishing a prior relationship, and only then noticed this was [...]

    23. A new novella from Manda that continues The Wicked Widow series. We have met Sir Lucien Blakewell and Miss Winifred Nightingale in Why Dukes Say I Do. Lucien is friends with The Duke of Ormonde and Winifred is governess to the dukes sisters.They meet again at a Christmas house party in the country. Lucien realizes that he wants to be more than friends, but Winifred resists him because she feels that she doesn't belong in his social sphere. As the party progresses their feelings for each other de [...]

He and Winnie know each other from Yorkshire and have a friendly acquaintance. Things of course change and Lucien and Winnie find themselves thrown together in an unsuspected manner.

    25. This book is a sweet Christmas novella. Sir Lucien Blakemore spends Christmas for the first time in years with his cousin, and is surprised to find his neighbor's governess, Miss Winifred Nightingale as one of the house party. Lucien has more than a passing interest in Winifred, and hopes to make her his permanently. He encounters obstacles as the stubborn miss feels that his social status is too much higher than hers for a happy match, and someone at the house party is trying to harm Winifred. [...]

    26. This was a sweet story about Christmas, redemption and love. Manda has a great way of writing. Her words just flow and you go along for the ride. Sir Lucien meets a governess he knows at a friend's house. He knows they will marry. Winifred not so much. There are the usual guests who pick on those they think don't belong. Really? Who questions the host and hostess? From there on someone is attacking Winnie with notes and injuries when Lucien announces their betrothal. There were lots to choose fr [...]

    27. Love Manda Collins! A great winter read (Christmas is the setting for the story, but not overly harped on), with a bit of mystery, lots of flirtation, romance, and a strong underlying message to not judge others too quickly. Winnie and Lucien were lovely together, and Lucien is a hero who's probably more in love to start with than his heroine is. I liked that he took Winnie's fears about marriage seriously and didn't try to overrule her with vague promises that everything would turn out right. T [...]

    28. This is the kinda story where you really are rooting for the heroine. She's down-on-her-luck gentry, a woman of slight station who had to be employed for a living. Winifred and her sister get invited to a house party and they both go since they have no other plans for the holidays. Both of the women are pretty and therefore are a competition for others who think themselves better. However, they both find Christmas cheer and love even with all the obstacles in their way. There are some nasty char [...]

    29. This is a very endearing Christmas tale with a little bit of mystery. Lucien goes to his cousin's house Party and sees the woman who had already caught his eye, Miss Winifred Nightingale. She is his neighbor's Governess, the woman who has peaked his interest. Winnie needs Lucien's help to dissuade an unpleasant guest who Winnie has had dealings with in the past and also against an anonymous threat. She propositions Lucien to pretend to be her betrothed. He acceptsbut with one condition. Readers [...]

    30. A Christmas house party for the cream of the ton in the country should be fun and merry, filled with matchmaking and wassail, but instead machinations and intrigue join lovers under the mistletoe. Chance meetings, lust, hopes, dreams, drama and deception with all the Christmas trimmings lead to a house party no one will forget for years to come. Step back in time to Christmas past and find out if love conquers all, meant to last.

    31. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is a pretty awesome short story. The author does a great job of telling a good story in a short period of time. The only reason I did not give it five stars was that the author threw out way too many names. It made it very hard to follow at some points. Other than that is was a fun read I loved Lucien he was just so sweet.
