Thank you so much for stopping by to check out Mistletoe and Matrimony! I'm honored that you've given this novel your attention out of all the millions of novels here on Wattpad! This yuletide novella is a follow-up to Carols & Courtship, a novella I posted during the twelve days of Christmas last year. The main characters will be familiar if you've read Carols & Courtship, but this novella is a standalone and can be read without having read its prequel.
This is my Christmas gift to the Wattpad community - a special thank you to my readers for all the wonderful support you've given me this year! SERIOUSLY. I would not be where I am today without you guys. This has been a crazy year! I've finished writing two novels, and won a Watty Award. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all. On top of that, I have been overwhelmed by the votes, and the stupendous comments you guys leave on my stories. I love writing for myself, but you guys make sharing my writing a dream come true!
After selling his ancestral estate, Archibald Colston decides to exchange the pastoral serenity of country society for a chance to make a new life for the Colston family in the wealthy elite of New York City. Upon their arrival, Archibald and his sister, Olivia, who is less than thrilled to be separated from the familiarity of English society, are thrown into the unbridled opulence of the New York winter season - but not without help. Millionaires might be made everyday in the land of opportunity, but the old money is not so eager to welcome new money "Swells" into their exclusive circles. The Swells are ready for a showdown... and the opera is their chosen venue. Archibald and Olivia both find themselves with a vested interest in the successful opening of the Civic Opera House. With a show set to premiere on Christmas Eve, the future of the opera house, and a secure spot in society on the line, the pressure is on. Sparks will fly as the Colstons team up with a pair of eccentric producers, a spit-fire stage manager, a debutante with a golden voice, and a sensational corsetier to put on a show New York City won't soon forget.
