Review Tour – The Mistletoe Kiss by Ruby Moone
By 1816, widowed bookseller Lawrence Fenton has spent a lonely lifetime hiding who he is. He has convinced himself his feelings for his far too young, gorgeous, but troubled assistant Christy Shaw are nothing more than pride in his protégé and concern for his plight.
Christy’s life involves walking fine lines: one between his mother and his abusive stepfather, one where he must keep his needs hidden, and hardest of all, one where he must keep his feelings for his serious employer to himself.
Lame since birth, Lawrence cannot imagine anyone wanting him, least of all Christy. But when Christy’s life threatens to spiral out of control, Lawrence steps in. Then Christy’s emotions spill over into a kiss under the mistletoe at Christmas. Will Lawrence be able to face the long-buried truth about himself and keep Christy by his side?

This is a spectacular book and the first I’ve read from Ruby Moone. The story between two men, Lawrence and Christy, is such a beautiful one that I couldn’t put it down.
Lawrence owns a bookstore and Christy is in his employ. The two men have a lot in common, besides their love of reading, but they are in a time where they can’t admit their feelings, especially if they are for another man.
Christy has been dealing with his abusive stepfather since his mother married him six months previous. He wants to protect his mother and make her realize that she shouldn’t stay with him. In the meantime, Lawrence sees all that Christy is going through and does his best to make his life a little easier, all showing Christy how much he cares.
During the Christmas season, both men start to realize that there is more to life than the hardship they’ve been through, and together, they could make it through anything. I loved the story and I hope there is more of Christy and Lawrence in the future because their story was perfect.
Ruby lives in Lancashire in the northwest of England. All through school she was told she would never get anywhere if she didn’t stop daydreaming. Eventually it occurred to her to write down the daydreams, and voilà! The beautiful men in her head came to life. Ruby writes historical and contemporary gay romance but has a definite weakness for handsome men in billowing white shirts, breeches, and cravats. Oh, and she loves tea. Lots of tea.
