About Jude Knight

Jude Knight has been telling stories all her life: making up serial tales to amuse her friends and children, imagining sequels to books that have moved her and left her wanting more, occasionally submitting short stories to magazines and the radio, starting more than a dozen novels set in different times and places.

She has devoted most of the last forty years to a career in commercial writing and raising a large family (most recently as grandmother-in-residence while a daughter was out of action for three years). She and her own personal romantic hero, with whom she has shared those forty+ years, now live with two cats and frequent visitors in a small town in rural New Zealand.

Judy wrote and published her first historical romance in 2014, and now has the wind in her sails and a head full of strong determined heroines, heroes with the sense to appreciate them, and villains you'll love to loathe.

This is the first regency romance that I have read where the main characters are a hero named Candle and a heroine name Min. That drew me in from the start. Also, Min works in the family business designing and making special wheel chairs.
While short on words, the story is beautiful. Candle and Min had a relationship three years previous, but due to Min overhearing and misinterpreting an inappropriate conversation, the relationship did not continue. When they meet once again as Candle needed two chairs for his invalid mother, he decided to court Min using flowers sent to her mother. I absolutely loved the use of flowers and their meanings. Jude included a listing of those flowers and meanings in the back of the book. It is delightful!
This is well worth the read as Min is strong, creative and smart and Candle supports her choice of occupation. This certainly was rare in that time period.
I highly recommend this book that you can read in one evening.

Candle's Christmas Chair by Jude Knight
Lord Randall “Candle” Avery finds quite a surprise when he goes to Bath to see about an invalid chair for his mother. A young woman he met and had been courting three years before. Until the night he found out she was not who he believed her to be.

Minerva Bradshaw cannot inherit Bradshaw Carriages, her father's business because she was born female. That does not stop Min from starting her own business of making invalid chairs. She's happy and content in her life and business and her working class. She had a taste of Society while she was in school and that was more than enough for her.

This is a short novella of how Candle and Min met. When they reappear in the author's next book, Farewell to Kindness, she realized they needed their own story.This is a complete story that includes a couple aggravating gentry who enjoy nothing more than causing trouble wherever they go.

Review by: Whaley Publishing on Dec. 20, 2014 :
This was such a great novella! In the tradition of sweet Regency romance, Knight introduces a strong and opinionated heroine, a gentle but determined hero, and a relationship that is all the stronger for the struggle to attain the happy ending. Without obvious and blatant sexuality, and without forcing a situational resolution, the reader can believe in the interconnection of two less-than-perfect souls thwarted by circumstance. As a spin-off novella to a book as yet unpublished, Candle's Christmas Chair gives me a strong impetus to put this author, and all her future novels, on my permanent TBR list.
