Summary

Have you ever dreamed of a Christmas wedding?

Spinsterhood has never looked so good, but unfortunately even that won't save Lady Juliette Brooks. Her father's arranged a betrothal for her to a brute of a man. She has one choice left - force the Duke of Kissinger to honor a long ago promise to save her.

Grayson Abbot, the Duke of Kissinger, does not want to marry Lady Juliette. He doesn't want to marry anyone. But he did make her a promise, and he doesn't go back on his word. So he reluctantly agrees to run away with her.

They set off on an adventure during the Christmastide season. As they race to Scotland they experience delays, cold weather, and a friendship they'd almost forgotten about. Will Juliette finally find out what it's like to be kissed, and in return, win the duke's heart?

Enjoyed the Audible so much!

Loved the story. Characters are wonderful. Narrator did a good job - but did have to put the speed at 1.25x. Otherwise the slow story pace was too slow. Details are wonderful. Story is intriguing- held my interest from beginning to end.

wonderful story

this book was great. the story was short and sweet. it is a clean romance. since it is short, there isn't much character development but I didn't mind that.

it is part of a series. I am going to go listen to the one before it too since it is part of. AE. I would love to listen to the whole series but at this time, the rest are not part of. AE or KU.

the narration was on point IMO. I slight British accent.

I do love this author. I've listened to quite a few of her books. some of my favorites!!!

Love this series

When ones father pushes you into marrying a man you don’t want which is unkind there is only one thing to do and that is to give a little push to a man who made a promise years ago. The author gives wonderful detail of an exciting adventure as they race to Greta Green to marry before her father can do anything about it.

The narrator does a good job but repeats a few words. She gives emotion but at times seems dry. There were no volume changes, it was a clean audio. Most of her character voices were nice, a few I didn’t care for. The audio doesn’t flowed smoothly and I did find my mind wondering but I always came back. For the most part I enjoyed this audio but feel the narrator needs to be a little more natural it sounds at times like she is reading.

Juliette is a quite sweet lady that does what her father said, but there is a different side to her nature that everyone is about to find out. Grayson is a little on the wild side doing just the opposite of what his father wants, but slowly and surly he turns his wicked ways around.

This is short and fast leaving nothing out, I do wish the authors stories were longer. She gives a delightful story that you do not want to end. I just love the characters, the plot and how the story builds up to wonderful finish.

A Wallflower's Christmas Kiss

I absolutely loved the story. It was entertaining and kept my interest and made me want more. It was a book to finish in one sitting. Having read most of Dawns work it just keeps getting better. I also enjoyed the narration.

At a point you feel extremely sorry for Lady Juliette. Its like the world has set out to ignore her existance. But a promise by Lord Grayson to always be their for her is going to be her only saving grace.

A delightful regency story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this book to anyone who likes regency romances.
It is a cute story and and a light, fun read. Although it has Christmas in the title, it is not necessarily a Christmas story and can be read and enjoyed at any time of the year.
The narrator did a great job. I enjoyed the story and would certainly read more from the author in the future.

Any additional comments?

I voluntarily received a review copy.

Oh My! Swoon.........

Dawn's little wallflower knows how to bloom! This story is wonderful, a little suspense, tension and no explicit sex scenes, (thank you). I wanted the story to keep going. Donna Vaughan did a great job reading the story.

Sweet historical romance

Sweet short story of two children who are best friends who drift apart but find their way back together many years later. When Julia's evil stepmother attempts to marry her off to an abusive Viscount she runs a way to the only friend she's ever had. The story is short but sweet as the two childhood friends reunite and fall in love.

Can true love last years

If you could sum up A Wallflower's Christmas Kiss in three words, what would they be?

Intriguing, funny, sweet

Who was your favorite character and why?

Juliet was my favorite character she knew her mind and was determined to get what she wants.

Any additional comments?

Wonderfully sweet with just enough humor and intrigue to keep you listening just to find out what was gonna happen next. I was wondering if Juliet was ever gonna get that supposed rake to give into her.....lol
