A Victorian Christmas by Catherine Palmer

Fara has inherited her father's estate. Now all of the single men are after her for her money. Fara wants nothing to do with them until she finds a stranger laying in the snow with a gunshot wound in his arm. She immediately thinks that he is a desperado.

But they soon come to care for each other.
The Second Story: Lone Star
Star Ellis is on her way from America to marry a British aristocrat in Northern England. Their alliance will help save her father's cattle farm in America. What Star doesn't count on is falling in love with the stranger that travels with her to England. Determined to keep her promise to save her fathers land Star is set on putting her own feelings aside to honor her father.
The Third Story: Under His Wings
A story that mirrors the story of Ruth in the Bible. Gwyneth has traveled with her mother-in-law back to her mother-in-law's family home. A young widow she is determined to stay and take care of her mother-in-law and serve the master of the manor well.
Each story had some entertaining parts to it and characters that make them endearing to the reader. I was just finished with the short stories and ready to move on to something else to finish the 4th story.
