Review: The Earl's Christmas Colt by Rebecca Thomas

This is my review of The Earl's Christmas Colt by Rebecca Thomas. I was given a copy to review by NetGalley.


Lady Arabella Sutton is stunned to learn her brother has betrothed her to a stranger despite his promises for a season in London. Although she is the first to admit no man would suit, since she’s more interested in horses than marriage, the last thing she wants is to become a brood mare to a stuffy old earl. Facing a future she cannot abide, she takes an impetuous ride to clear her head and ends up tending her injured mare instead.

Oliver Westwyck, the Earl of Marsdale, can’t believe his luck when he stops at an inn the night before he’s to meet his fiancée. In the stable, while tending the colt he intends to give to his future wife, he happens upon her—rain-drenched but beautiful. She assumes he’s a stable hand, a fine joke he means to end...until Lady Arabella declares all noblemen are egotistical, conceited, and arrogant. How can he reveal his true identity before he’s managed to change her mind and win her heart?


This was an extremely short book so didn't take me long to read at all, so would be perfect for a lunch break or a trip on the bus/train.

It wasn't a bad book but it was a bit cheesy for my taste, but I suppose that it has to be really to fit the story into only a few pages.

Both characters, Oliver and Arabella are quite likable and leave you rooting for them to get together and have a happily ever after.

The synopsis basically tells you all of the story line and there weren't any surprises.

There isn't a great deal to say about this book. It was a short pleasant read suitable for those who like a lighthearted historical romance.

I would give this book

3 out of 5 stars.
