Review: A Kiss for Midwinter by Courtney Milan

Series: Brothers Sinister Book #1.5
Format: Ebook
Rating: 3 Stars
How I Got It: Purchased
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Self-published

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
Miss Lydia Charingford is always cheerful, and never more so than at Christmas time. But no matter how hard she smiles, she can't forget the youthful mistake that could have ruined her reputation. Even though the worst of her indiscretion was kept secret, one other person knows the truth of those dark days: the sarcastic Doctor Jonas Grantham. She wants nothing to do with him...or the butterflies that take flight in her stomach every time he looks her way.

Jonas Grantham has a secret, too: He's been in love with Lydia for more than a year. This winter, he's determined to conquer her dislike and win her for his own. It all starts with a wager and a kiss...

A Kiss for Midwinter is a novella (38,000 words) in the Brothers Sinister series. It follows The Duchess War. Each book stands on its own, but those who prefer to read in order might want to read that book first.


This is the first disappointing book I've read by Courtney Milan. It was an ok read, but not as good as her others. It was especially sad because I was really excited for Lydia and Jonas' story after the previous book.

The language was kind of odd, not in a bad way though. Jonas is just so honest and straight forward. I guess I'm just used to the more physical prose kind of language.

Thanks for reading!
