When John Trent, a dedicated member of the new Bow Street Runners, finds an exquisite carved angel floating in the Thames, he can’t stop thinking about it. He tracks down its creator, a sad and quiet young sculptor. But neither the angel nor the sculptor is done with John just yet. The blasted angel refuses to leave him be, behaving not at all like an inanimate object should.
Alec Allston is resigned to the fact that his love will
ever be a river that flows out and never flows in. All he wanted to do
was create a special gift so that a small part of himself could be with
his unattainable and noble beloved, always. But when the gift keeps
showing back up at his shop in the hands of a windblown and rugged
thief-taker, Alec will need to reconsider his conviction that love is
destined to remain an ethereal ideal.
This book is one of seven stories which can all be read and enjoyed in any order.

The Christmas Angel Series:
1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and
longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his
beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a
second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who
brought the woodcarver True Love.
Since then, the angel has been
passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the
romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas angel
through the years. Whether it’s the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding’s
Summerfield’s Angel), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk’s
Magician’s Angel), World War II (L.A. Witt’s Christmas Homecoming),
Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker’s Soldier’s Wish), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday’s
Shrewd Angel), or 2018 (RJ Scott’s Christmas Prince), the Christmas
angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its
blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.
Christmas Angel by Eli Easton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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. Pfft!
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 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? (Cough!)
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!
