Regency Royal Navy Christmas, by Carla Kelly

Even the squared away, efficient Royal Navy must surrender to the joys and misadventures of a Regency Christmas. Four stories shine a light on Christmas during the Napoleonic Wars on land and sea.

In Boxing the Compass, a homesick frigate captain shepherding a convict convoy to Australia wants nothing more than to hold his infant daughter in faraway England. Perhaps he can enlist a pair of prickly convicts with a new baby to help him.

Wait Here for the Present, finds a spinster, chafing with boredom, helping a motherless lad get to Plymout for Christmas with his surgeon-father. She can help, but love is the farthest thing from her mind.

In Slip #5, Captain McCulloch’s ship HMS Trident must spend a month in dry dock in Devonport. What better time to catch up on his reading? His plans are complicated by a bad cold, a good widow and her children, shy lovers, and dilemmas it seems only he can solve. Whatever happened to peace and quiet?

As a special bonus, The Christmas Angle introduces readers of the acclaimed St. Brendan Series to that unlikely genius, Sailing Master Able Six. Readers are requested and required to come aboard for a Royal Navy holiday.

“Carla Kelly has the rare ability to create realistic yet sympathetic characters that linger in the mind. One of the most respected Regency Writers.”
