One Snowy Night with Lord Hauxton by Laura Martin


Thomas needs to escape London following the death of his fiancé and he ends up staying with a friend in Kent. Henrietta has run away from London following an argument with her mother and has also ended up in the same house in Kent but the snow has meant that their hosts are stuck in Hampshire so Thomas and Henrietta are trapped together in the house alone 
I liked Henrietta, she is an artist but not someone who paints the traditional watercolours of the time but instead grittier images of people that she sees in the poorer streets of London. Her reason for feeing London resonates with me and she struggles to pick up a paintbrush after that but her sanctuary helps make her more relaxed and able to cope with her mother
Thomas is running scared as it seems that everyone he has cared about in his life has died and his emotions are still raw, escaping London gives him the opportunity to be himself, although things are complicated when he meets Henrietta. He is honourable and intelligent as well as kind and caring which drew me to him and seeing him relax and unbend as the story progressed made him seem so much more real 
Although both Thomas and Henrietta are trying to escape their lives being thrown together allows them to learn about each other and understand each other in a way that would otherwise not have been possible in the traditional London ballrooms which really worked for their characters. They wouldn’t have been able to work through their differences if they had only met briefly so meeting them this way really worked for them as characters 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a festive historical romance with the main characters being trapped by the snow and learning so much about themselves and each other that you will end up loving them
