Angel of Christmas (TV Movie ) - IMDb
When she arrives, she finds William Darcy, a Bert, about to sell his house and move into a A man who wins a small fortune decides to share his winnings by acting as a Secret Santa to people in a small town. One of the characters chosen is a boy whose father is deceased. Ashley has been on her own all her life.
She feels even more alone this Christmas as she searches fruitlessly for a job.
I've heard about this, but how does it work?
The seasonal cheer around her only rubs salt in her wounds as she scrapes by to support herself and her dog, Dash. But her neighbor, Nick, knows exactly what to do. He offers her a job, to be his assistant in the best work-helping others. There's one catch that Ashley must honor though-she can't tell anyone that her new boss is a sort of Secret Santa, helping others anonymously. Through her new job, Ashley meets Will, a writer for a business magazine who uncovers what Ashley is doing, and more importantly, Nick's involvement.
As Ashley and Nick help people in need, Ashley tries to protect Nick's secret, and her own heart, while Will must weigh the consequences of what he does. With so many Christmas movies on television at the moment sometimes a gem can be found among the dross. This film is one of the best seasonal movies of the past 10 years. It must be good because I can watch it again and again. It is perfectly cast with Kari Hawker and KC Clyde finding love in an unexpected way and Bruce Davison brilliant as the very wealthy cancer-ridden former property developer who regrets aspects of his past life and seeks to help those in real need at Christmas.
The film lacks sentimentality which adds to its attraction. Start your free trial. This was a lovely holiday read and I look forward to reading further in this multi-author series.

And I love it. Eli nails the historical setting perfectly, including the real concerns about social status and social propriety. More importantly, however, the characters are lovely.
I could feel the longing between Alec and John very clearly. There are also some really fun secondary characters and a plot with a hint of magic and intrigue. A perfect Christm I wrote another book in this series. A perfect Christmas story. Nov 10, Anyta Sunday rated it it was amazing. However, all the books are standalones and I've been so thrilled to read some of the stories already. I'm just so in love with this story.
I honestly don't know how Eli does it. She wields her pen with magic. You guys are gonna go nuts.

Hurrayyy to Eli Easton for yet another Christmas story win! I swear that she writes the best Christmas stories out there. I loved timid Alec and chivalrous John. This is a slow-burn, feel-good love story with hope, happiness and a perfect happily ever after. Nov 17, Cadiva rated it it was amazing. Eli Easton kicks off this loosely interlinked series of festive romances with a truly beautiful historical set in the Georgian period of English history. Giving the backstory to the Christmas Angel, her romance between a sculptor and a Bow Street Runner is chock full of lovely historical accuracy and all the feels as two men whose very proclivities could have seen them to the noose, fall in love.
I adored Alec but John Trent is a fabulous character, solid and strong, truthful and determined to be Eli Easton kicks off this loosely interlinked series of festive romances with a truly beautiful historical set in the Georgian period of English history. I adored Alec but John Trent is a fabulous character, solid and strong, truthful and determined to be the one his artist can rely on.
It's steamy but period appropriate and I loved the whole imagination behind the Angel's creation. Mrs Simpson's household of 'deviants' was an utter delight. I can't wait to follow the Angel on her travels through time in this wonderful series from some of my favourite authors.

I decorate every nook and cranny, whip us a storm in the kitchen, and gorge myself on holiday stories. Much to my delight, a group of my favorite authors collaborated on a series of Christmas tales this year. Easton takes us back to in Lond December is my favorite month. Easton takes us back to in London where we meet two fetching men brought together in the most unusual manner.
Although they are quite different, both John and Alec are likable from the start. John is a large man, a bit rough around the edges, but he has a sweet and tender core. His job can be dangerous at times but it soothes a personal loss and gives him purpose. When he finds a magnificent sculpture discarded in the Thames, something shifts in him. Alec was touched by an angel and vowed to take heed her advise.
But will his past destroy his future? Alec thought he found love, only to have it thrown back in his face. But he was wrong. He might have been infatuated by the persuasive duke but he never truly loved him or in turn, was loved by him. John has never considered himself a romantic sort of fellow but Alec turns him inside out. He wishes to make him happy, care for him and above all, love him.
I adored their delicate courtship. And I simply melted with the wondrous powers of this elegant enchantment. New experiences for both. Alec has never been with anyone before and John has never been with anyone he loved before. Their relationship is brisk but solid.
I have no reservations that they will remain together, filled with joy by and by , for all time. This book is for: Are you looking for some holiday tales?

I am so excited to get this as a gift from the incredibly generous, super sweet Elf sleuthing a la Elmer Fudd, who is spoiling me rotten! Well, more rotten, LOL! Eli Easton writes wonderful, heart-tugging stories all of the time but her Christmas stories are always something special. This was so sweet, romantic and hopeful, I was a big melted puddle of happy when I finished. If I could have wished for anything more, it would have been a little more heat I am so excited to get this as a gift from the incredibly generous, super sweet Elf sleuthing a la Elmer Fudd, who is spoiling me rotten!
If I could have wished for anything more, it would have been a little more heat but my true regret is that there wasn't more! Thank you again to the wonderful Elf sleuthing a la Elmer Fudd for the gift, which I loved! This book has everything I love in a story! Holiday, mm, historical, London, and Bow Street Runners! I have 'a thing, like a weak spot' for a Bow Street Runners and John won my heart, and Alec's heart, of course. Alec had to thank the angel he met that night, for making him cancelled his stupidity over what he called love. Eli Easton hit the spot with this book, I think, this series is my Christmas favorite series with all the beautiful stories included.
I was blushed with how John romancing This book has everything I love in a story! I was blushed with how John romancing Alec, and how smooth he approached Alec from the start. He's such a gentleman! And I almost didn't believed it when it was the shy Alec who initiate to 'visit' John's rooms!
You know what I mean? The ending was 'believable' for that era, and I was happy with that. Christmas angel is one of a must read Christmas book, if not all the book of the series! I'm pretty sure there's nothing Eli can't write. Her last book had me on the edge with Boy Shattered and this one had me in the most hopeful, Christmasy mood. It's not my first Christmas read by her either, but it IS my first historical, and I'm not BIG on historical, so I'm not a huge judgement of accuracy or anything, but, She just seems to be able to write any trope, and rocks it.
This is about an artist who's about to give up, but is visited by an angel during his lowest moment. In return, h I'm pretty sure there's nothing Eli can't write. In return, he makes a likeness of her as a special gift to his "first love" to remember them by. Unaware that it's unrequited, until a stranger shows up with the angel Not once, but twice. John is basically thief -runner, what I come to conclude as a sort of police officer. They're trolling the shores looking for some items that may have started a crime spree, but what John finds is something entirely different.
A good motto for John is "never judge a book by it's cover". He may seem big and gruff and tough, but he has a lot of soft spots.

Especially for his gang of misfits that he's housed with. I think I loved that part the most. Also, the way he courts Alec, the small things he brings for him daily. I like his style, I think it's the small things that matter, not huge gestures and I thought they were really sweet. This is a standalone, but part of the Christmas Angel series, so I'm dying to get my hands on Kim Fielding's story next: I really enjoyed this story.
It was sweet and just the type of read I enjoy during this time of year. A story of hope and love. A truly perfect Christmas story.
