MY FAVORITE THINGS
A Christmas Historical Romance Collection
BY LYNSAY SANDS
Three classic tales of Christmas and love, together for the first time, from New York Times Bestselling Author Lynsay Sands!
All I Want
With Lady Prudence’s father gambling away the family’s savings, all she wants for Christmas is to haul him away from London’s most notorious gaming hell. Yet the wickedly handsome proprietor, Lord Stockton, refuses to let a lady enter his establishment. Now Pru needs a Christmas miracle to make her wish come true—and to resist succumbing to Stockton’s charms.
Three French Hens
Brinna’s life as a scullery maid changes with the arrival of the castle’s newest guest, Lady Joan. Desperate to escape an arranged marriage, Joan suggests that look-alike Brinna take her place at the Christmas festivities. Suddenly, Brinna finds herself being wooed by a true gentleman, and getting the best Christmas present of all: a new life.
The Fairy Godmother
Odel is told by her godmother that she must marry by Christmas, and even gives her fairy dust to separate the mice from the men. But Odel has sworn off love…until kind and generous Michel catches her eye. He shows Odel how good it can feel to fall in love, but will it be enough to convince Odel to trust her heart?

“All I want for Christmas is for your father to stop his gambling before he sees us in debtors’ prison.”
Creditors were starting to arrive at the door every day now. And there were a lot of them. Her father, of course, was never available.
When he was home, he was sleeping off the drink from the night before. When he was awake, he wasn’t home but off drinking and gambling them closer to ruin. Bentley had managed to turn away the creditors so far, but soon they would not be brushed off. Debtors’ prison was becoming a very real possibility. Why could her father not see what he was doing?
“That is all I want for Christmas,” her mother said now. “And I pray to God for it every day.” For a moment Prudence felt sadness weigh her down; then she grimly straightened her shoulders. Her mother was of the old school, where a wife did not question her husband or his behavior. Prudence was of the firm belief that when the husband was destroying his family, someone needed to alert him to the matter. Besides, it had always been her opinion that God helped those who helped themselves.
Which left it up to her to see if she could help God wrap this Christmas wish up for her mother.
