'Twas the night before mischief and all through the house, a lady was plotting—it was time to break out!

When Penelope Darlington is persuaded to elope with a most unsuitable suitor, she wastes no time. With visions of passion and adventure dancing in her head, she steals away in the middle of the night, just before her father’s Christmas feast.

Fearing for his daughter’s reputation, Henry Darlington begs Darius Hall, the Earl of Rushton’s daring yet discreet son, to bring Penelope home. When Darius finally catches up to Penelope, he is shocked. She’s not the silly little girl he expected, but a beautiful woman with a sharp mind and an allure that cannot be ignored.

Now forced to kidnap Penelope in order to bring her home, Darius and his new charge spend the next several days—and nights—in very close quarters. Penelope wanted passion and adventure, but she never could have imagined the pleasures Darius can provide…

My Rating: 4.5 Roses

A sweet holiday romance, 'Twas the Night Before Mischief was a wonderful historical romance novella. I really enjoyed reading this. It was absolutely lovely.

Penelope was a good heroine, for the most part. I liked that she was fiercely independent, though that got her into trouble. My one complaint was that she was so judgmental of Darius. She bemoaned the fact that society judged her to certain standards, but she was doing just that to Darius, which I thought was unfair. But, for the most part, I liked her. Darius was just wonderful. He was a very intelligent, reserved  kind of man. But, underneath that, he definitely had a lot of passion. And he was so sweet. I thought he was just perfect and I adored him.

The romance was good. Penelope and Darius were very sweet together and perfectly matched. Not to mention the sparks between them. It got very hot between these two. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The plot was fast paced. I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely.

'Twas the Night Before Mischief was a fantastic historical romance novella. I really liked this lovely book. Lovers of romance, if you want a great holiday read, then you have to read this book.
