AFTH w/ Vivienne Lorret-- Dear Father Christmas: A heroine vs a hero.

I'd been having some reading struggles when Vivienne Lorret landed on my radar with the first book of her Season's Original series. And yall. Holy cow. I was hooked. I couldn't put the book down and immediately was looking up when book two would release. And the same thing happened with book two. Lorret completely swept me away and had me excited about reading again. It was fantastic. And her characters so darn fun. Two of which are joining us today to share their Letters to Father Christmas. Juliet and Max, well, they make each other a little crazy. lol

Dear Father Christmas,
Being nice this year has been rather difficult. You see, an odious gentleman by the name of Maxwell Harwick stole my house from me. Not only that, but he persists in arguing whenever we are together, and since we travel in the same small circle it happens quite frequently.
Though, if I’m perfectly honest, I argue with him as well. In fact, just the other day, he challenged me to feed him a bit of cake. Instead, I popped the iced confection into my own mouth and relished every sweet morsel. I certainly surprised him! However, before I could eat the second cake, he took my wrist, lowered his hot mouth, and consumed the cake directly from my fingertips.
Even now as I write these lines, I can feel my skin turning bright pink at the memory. The things he does to me! And yet…
I suppose this is dreadful to admit, but I actually look forward to our tête-à-têtes. I lay awake at night reliving that moment and wonder what delicious torment he has in store for me next. Terribly naughty of me, I know!
Father Christmas, I need your help. When I returned to London, I only wanted to reclaim my home. Lately, however, I’ve begun to crave heated arguments, stolen kisses and so much more. Worse, I seem to want these things solely with Max.
So before this madness consumes me, please grant my Christmas wish and help me start my life over again.
Sincerely, Juliet Granworth






Dear Father Christmas,
I’ve been naughty. 
Even so, my wish is the same as it has always been. All I want for Christmas—and forever—is Juliet.

                             ~ Max Harwick



As a young, penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord... taking Max’s heart with her.

Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed, but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle he’ll get.

He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future. But beneath all the loathing simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.
