A Drakenfall Christmas Book Tour
By author Geralyn Corcillo
Tour Dates: November 13th – 19th, 2016
Mark and Maisy, ahem, that is, Lord and Lady Shiley, get ready to celebrate their first Christmas together at Drakenfall, their renowned estate-turned-resort in the heart of the Cotswolds. The energetic and very un-aristocratic couple spreads holiday cheer as they conspire in guest shenanigans and staff kerfuffles.
In an uncharacteristic turn, unflappable house manager Glynis Ferry seems to be getting her duster ruffled every time she catches sight of Shaun Fletcher, the new head groomsman. Pippa Taylor, a whirling dervish of a domestic, works below stairs to make the magic of Drakenfall happen for everyone else. But will there ever be enough magic left over for her? There will if most worthy valet Kafi Diop has anything to say about it, as he tries to spin holiday enchantment every which way. But his best laid plans always seem to go cataclysmically awry, even with Maisy helping out as his faithful sidekick.
And what about Kafi’s grandest of schemes, set to take flight at the Drakenfall Christmas Ball? He’s depending on guest Jamie Tovell, who’s depending on his secret crush Lea Sinclair.
But even if everything goes off without a hitch, will the secret Maisy’s been hiding from Mark all season pop up at the most inopportune moment to set everything asunder? It’s a Drakenfall Christmas … topsy turvy, but generously sprinkled with laughter and lavishly frosted with romance!

Author Corcillo has created many delightful characters, and the great manor house of Drakenfall is one of them. For centuries the seat of a Baron in the Cotswolds, the current Lord and his wife have transformed Drakenfall into a perfect resort. “Lord and Lady Shiley, as hardworking below stairs as they were delightful with the guests above stairs, truly brought the great estate of Drakenfall to a pinnacle it had never known.”
Guests at Drakenfall experience life on a fabulous aristocratic scale, including sumptuously furnished guest rooms and grand halls, gourmet meals, impeccable service and at the holidays all the trappings of a high society Christmas. But there is more to Drakenhall than grandeur. There is love and warmth, and it radiates from the Lord and Lady, who prefer to be called Mark and Maisy.
“It’s one of the things I love about Drakenfall. Everything has a story. It’s a place made up of all these people and their foibles and their hopes and concerns. And you know them all. You know about the people and their hearts and minds.”
“Anyone can be kind. But almost no one is.” “Isn’t that why we all love Christmas so much.”
“Drakenfall is a happy home to so many, a wonderful resort, a prosperous boon to the community.” And this book will be a happy read for you. There is so much to enjoy- the colorful and well-drawn characters, the story arcs of love and romance, and the hopeful message of kindness and goodwill. Jena C. Henry
