Our hero, is a stable groom working along side with his brother, just waiting for the right time to leave England and head to America. Then he runs into the lovely "Kitty" his boss's daughter and a lady of the Ton. Kitty has her eyes on a certain gentleman but she knows that she must get creative to pique his interest. So she employs the help of Hugh to train her in how to kiss. They begin meeting in secret, having picnics in the cool weather and keeping warm under the mistletoe with kisses and passionate embraces. But Kitty will need to choose between a horrible match or the man she has fallen in love with. This was a cute romantic read....but very short and sweet. Under 200 pages....but it flew by pretty quick and I grew to really like both of these characters. We have the setting of the whole "forbidden romance" theme going on and it really appealed to me with Kitty and Hugh. The author balanced it well out as far as the romance is concerned. It was a slow and steady built up of emotion and feels. What I felt was missing was the Christmas feel to the story. The only relevance it had to Christmas was them kissing under the mistletoe. And there was a second love plot with Kitty's sister that I wanted to see more especially since this is a single title. The ending wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked....it had a more HFN feel than a HEA (which is my preference especially when its not part of a series). But other than these aspects...I really enjoyed this story. It had charm and a classic romantic feel to it. There wasn't much conflict....or there was but not a heavy level of intensity to it. It was more lighthearted and fun at times which is what I was in the mood for. So if you like the lighthearted romances than I would recommdn this one. But for myself I did feel like some things were missing from the romance since I always crave more depth and emotion. But it was a sweet diversion from the stresses of life.

    Separated by class, this is a story of love ignoring boundaries. Hugh is a groom with a brogue who agrees to teach the youngest daughter of the house how to kiss in the hopes of catching who she thinks is her perfect match. He knows he is taking a huge risk just spending time with Lady Caroline, but cannot bring himself to care. Lady Caroline, Kitty, feels she is unwanted, but has it in her head that Lord Strathern is her perfect match.

Hugh is a groom with a brogue who agrees to teach the youngest daughter of the house how to kiss in the hopes of catching who she thinks is her perfect match.

Lady Caroline, Kitty, feels she is unwanted, but has it in her head that Lord Strathern is her perfect match. However, he seems attracted to women with more experience and she is convinced if she is has a bit of experience, kissing, she will be able to bring him around to her way of thinking. As the youngest daughter she only has the example of her older siblings to guide her and they have not been very helpful. In asking Hugh to help her she starts to change her mind on what she really wants from life. This is a beautiful story of hope, love and rebellion. The characters are wonderful and I was sad to see the end of the book, but happy too with love conquering all! The relationship between Hugh and Kitty is sweetly written, their walks and conversations are wonderful. Hugh sticking up for Kitty had me cheering. Ms Springsteen is a new author for me to follow. I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This was a great read! Kitty, the youngest daughter, has her mind set on marrying a man who does not seem to notice her. She asks for help from Hugh, a stablehand. Her naivete kept her from seeing Lord Strathern for the rake he was as well as how her heart fell for Hugh. I grew to love Hugh as well. He had such a kind heart and knew that he could not leave Kitty to her own devices. I love how this story allowed for the crossing of class lines and how other family members broke from customs.

    I liked the premise and loved the Scottish hero but everything else, ehh not so much. The heroine in particular was extremely hard to like. She was so silly, borderline dumb even, and her POV passages had me wanting to bash my head into the nearest wall. And the ending was just a mess. That cover is gorgeous though, and I liked the author's prose for the most part. But overall this felt like a missed opportunity.

She hasn't been successful in her two "Seasons" on the Marriage Mart and has decided that she needs some assistance in order to entice a gentleman to propose marriage. The Season ends and Kitty's family return to their country home. Kitty has decided she must learn how to become a "good kisser" in order to garner the attention of Lord Strathern who will be invited to her family's Christmas Ball. Since she doesn't have a lot of time to find a teacher, she chooses pretty much the first young man she notices when she returns home -Scottish stable hand, Hugh McCollum. When Kitty tells Hugh she wants him to teach her how to kiss, he is somewhat taken aback. He knows that if they should be caught together, things won't go well for either of them. His brother, Dougal, is the stable master and Hugh knows that if he cooperates with Kitty in her quest, both he and his brother could wind up losing their jobs. Of course Hugh accepts her offer because he can't resist the lovely little Kitty. They meet up once each week in a folly on the family property and although there isn't a vast amount of kissing or touching that takes place, it is enough to encourage both of them in their thoughts toward one another. In the process, Hugh begins to realize that Kitty truly lacks confidence in many areas. She often stumbles - in fact she has a tendency to always arrive late at balls so she won't have to be announced having had a very embarrassing tumble down the stairs when she was introduced early on during her first Season. To make matters worse, her parents watch over her like a hawk and she is taken to task for any freedoms she might attempt to enjoy - even taking a walk in the garden in less than suitable weather. As time goes on, it's obvious Hugh has fallen for Kitty and even though Kitty has all the signs of falling for Hugh, she still thinks to entice the "uninterested" Lord Stratford to kiss her under the mistletoe and eventually propose marriage. Hugh knows he and Kitty couldn't possibly have a future together but he does everything to help her in her quest to catch her man focusing on helping her regain her confidence as a person. *Slight Spoilers* Hugh and Kitty have some delightful times together during their weekly sessions that involve humor, warmth and pure sweetness. As one reads this little book, you continually wonder how in the world they will have their HEA. There is some pretty intense drama which involves rescuing Kitty from a mean, lustful lord, fisticuffs and strong words between Hugh and Kitty's father. But all of this is great because it further reveals the true character inside Hugh. Kitty has a decision to make - will her willingness to be daring and a risk taker be there when she needs to make one of life's major choices? All in all a sweet story for the Christmas Season.

    This was such a delightful book that really could be read at any time of the year especially if in need of a pick me up. Coming out parties and the like were such funny times to me in those days.

Rare occurrence in This was such a delightful book that really could be read at any time of the year especially if in need of a pick me up. Coming out parties and the like were such funny times to me in those days. The things that were the concern for most women, what to wear, how they looked and catching the attention of that "right" husband material for social standing and the like. My goodness some things still the same and thank goodness some things have changed. What about for love though? Rare occurrence in upstanding families with more than one female to be married off. But in this story something different will happen and that is the joy of reading it. Kitty is the youngest of three girls and her interests were really not the same as her sisters. Finding most of the men too much in the category of boys in her opinion she wants to catch the eye of a man-Roger one of the most eligible and elusive bachelors. Doesn't help she has overheard some not so nice girls say she is to be a spinster and on the shelf either. So how to catch a man's eye and keep it there is the question for her. She must have help (silly girl) and low and behold she finds just the right one to help her-Hugh and he works for her father at the stables. Oh my did I see fun afoot and most likely she will learn more than she dreams. Most enjoyable reading of these lessons and the interaction between them adorable that it warms the heart. Of course while reading I began to root for Hugh and not Roger to win the place in her heart. Humor and romance most fitting read any day. Great supporting interaction from other characters as well including sisters namely Jenny. When it finally is showtime she will find out why he is still single and not so desirable after all and stuff hits the fans. In this game of love winner will take all and there will be no prisoners and just not for Kitty. Great finale included and I was left all warm and cozy when finished with this novel. Received this arc for a honest review.

    Kay Springsteen's last Christmas romance The Toymaker was just about my very favorite so when this one was released I jumped all over it. It is the classic romance between two individuals that are just about as far apart on the social scale that one can get in Regency England, thus its appeal. Lady Caroline Tyndall, youngest daughter of a wealthy Earl, has wasted her two London seasons without a single offer. Poor 'Kitty' wonders why and is suffering from an acute lack of self esteem because of Kay Springsteen's last Christmas romance The Toymaker was just about my very favorite so when this one was released I jumped all over it. It is the classic romance between two individuals that are just about as far apart on the social scale that one can get in Regency England, thus its appeal. Lady Caroline Tyndall, youngest daughter of a wealthy Earl, has wasted her two London seasons without a single offer. Poor 'Kitty' wonders why and is suffering from an acute lack of self esteem because of it. Young Scotsman Hugh McCollum is working as her father's stable hand with his older brother and dreaming of America. Lady Caroline has her hat set on a young eligible gentleman of the peerage but seeks out young Hugh to "teach her a few tricks" on how to attract his attention. Hugh knows if he is caught it will lead to his immediate dismissal as well as his brother's. Bravely, they meet secretly on a hidden but romantic location on the manor property. Both young and naive, they initially don't understand why they are so drawn to each other. It cannot possibly be love can it? Poor Kitty is not respected or regarded by any of her suitors or her mother or father for that matter. Hugh, on the other hand, treats her with admiration, regard, and protectiveness. Realizing she is in constant great danger of being exposed, she still cannot resist the handsome attentive Scotsmen who treats her with the utmost of kindness. How on earth will they overcome this hopeless relationship? Only Kitty's two older sisters seem to sympathize and wish to help them. Both the romantic tension and the danger of their secret trysts are masterfully handled by the author. Being an online Facebook friend of the author has revealed her heart for the vulnerable and forgotten people and animals among us and this compassion thus permeates her stories. This is a Christmas tale not to be missed, full of emotion, feeling, and unfettered love.

She’s set her cap for the older Lord Roger Scriven, the 8th Baron of Strethern, but he doesn’t know she exists. Lord Scriven brings a young and beautiful ‘cousin’ to a dinner party while Kitty found herself paired with a younger, rather clumsy young man who wasn’t Lord Scriven. Her parent’s Christmas Ball is just around the corner and Lord Scriven is on the invitation list. Kitty simply must get his attention somehow. But how? Hugh McCollum, who with his brother, Dougal, are recent arrivals and work in the stables. Kitty enlists Hugh to teach her how to kiss the way men like it, something that throws Hugh – and Kitty – into turmoil. Additional ‘lessons’ on various social topics only reinforces the problem. The night of the ball arrives and Lord Scriven finally notices her. That’s when Kitty discovers she doesn’t feel for Lord Scriven the way she feels for Hugh. Unfortunately, her plan to get Lord Scriven’s attention works - too well. Hugh steps in to save her, but in the process, decks Lord Scriven, then decks Lord Grant who fires the groom on the spot. In the confusion that follows, Lord Grant decides Kitty must marry Lord Scriven. Lord Grant doesn’t know – or wanting to believe – Lord Scriven is the culprit, not Hugh. This Regency romance book a delightful read, but quite predictable. A few surprises or twists in the plot would have made the book much better. I give this book 4-stars.

    This was a cute and clean regency story that was perfect for the winter months! A quick read (it took me about a day and a half to finish), this story was impossible to put down. I had to find out what was coming - would Kitty manage to snare the man she had set her cap on? Was he even worth snaring? And what of Hugh - would he be able to let her go if it meant she would be happy? What would happen if they were caught during one of their lessons? The possibilities of this story were endless.

The one thing that I have to say was probably the most enjoyable part of this story (for me anyway), was the way that it overlooked pre-conceived notions of how things were supposed to be, and instead took a more realistic approach. This was truly a story where true love won out over all the obstacles in the way. On the flip-side of that, I felt that we were missing out on potential story arcs. We are introduced to a certain female character with whom Hugh's brother had a history - but she was only there for one scene and really didn't seem to serve much of a purpose aside from upsetting the Heroine. And what of Lord Randall? Did he ever find someone to love him for his flaws? All things considered I would definitely recommend this story to those that enjoy a well thought out (if a little unconventional) romance. DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way.

Kitty Tyndall (Lady Caroline) was the youngest of three sisters. She had obvious confidence and self-esteem issues because she felt the need to approach the young Scottish stable hand Hugh McCollum, to teach her how to kiss. For a properly raised young lady, she had no qualms in meeting Hugh in secret on a regular basis. She wanted to be taught to kiss properly so she could appear sophisticated and experienced when she caught the attentions of the much older Lord Strathern, whom she hoped to wed one day. Hugh reluctantly accepted to help her out and of course, they fell in love during their secret meetings. Kitty's sisters, despite their good breeding, displayed some rebellious traits as well. This worked out to Kitty's advantage since her parents, especially her father, heartlessly prepared to sacrifice Kitty to the likes of Lord Strathern, who turned out to be a creep, simply to "save her reputation". This story was a quick clean read. Even though "mistletoe" was mentioned in the title and in the book, the story did not have a Christmas theme or feel to it.

While the storyline of this book could have been very predictable, Kay Springsteen threw in a couple of surprises to keep us on our toes throughout the book.

Kitty, while a bit insecure about herself, definitely is a woman with a mind of her own! Their interactions with each other were sweet and fun to watch. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sweet, fun regency romance and a sexy Scot swooping in to save the day! I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Lady Caroline wants to attract Lord Skriven, a man who has a taste for 'experienced' women. So, she plans to have the groom, Hugh, teach her how to kiss and attract a man. This is a sweet enough tale. Lady Caroline was a rather immature heroine, but not too awful to read. Hugh was a hero I enjoyed. I just couldn't suspend my belief enough to really get behind a young lady falling in love with a groom. The author did a wonderful job of being detailed and that is what saved the book in my opinion. I Lady Caroline wants to attract Lord Skriven, a man who has a taste for 'experienced' women.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This was a really great historical romance about a romance between classes. Lady Caroline has been unlucky in love and decides she needs to learn how to kiss to land her fantasy man Lord Strathern. She goes to Hugh and asks him to teach her. He ends up helping and meets her in secret. This is such a sweet story. I really enjoyed it and will definitely be reading other books by Kay Springsteen.

    I received a free copy from LibraryThing for an honest review. Although the beginning seemed interesting, it was too simplistic and the main character a bit too young and childish. She wants a groom to teach her how to kiss a man so that she can attract the attention of a much older peer. This storyline is more for a teenager and didn't really have any substance to it. A quick read but not too much content. I received a free copy from LibraryThing for an honest review.

    I adore everything Christmas and this story hit that mark. Caroline has never been kissed and is determined to find a husband with a little help from Hugh. Whether he wants to help or not, he finds himself drawn to Caroline. The estate, the gardens, the long walks add romance and a little magic to the season. Not to mention some help from her two sisters. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    An enthralling read with down to earth characters and believe dialogue, "Teach Me Under the Mistletoe" was a surprising gem that offered more drama than I was expecting. I enjoyed the pacing of the story and the clean but passionate love between our two lovers. I look forward to more from this author!

    Loved this book and the characters , Kitty is so young and Hugh sounds SO WONDERFUL. I always wish I'm a character in these kind of books, such grand love stories I will be reading more of Kay Springsteen's books.

    This was a great historical romance! I really enjoyed reading about Kitty and Hugh, whose social standings prevented them from even entertaining the notion of being together officially. Their love story was very sweet, with just enough spicyness! Definitely recommend.

    I've been in a holiday mood so I've been "pulling out" all my Kindle Christmas-y short stories. This was a cute Regency story, although I did find the underlying premise a bit far-fetched.
