When Grace runs away from her banishment, she runs into Rafe-the man of her dreams. Unfortunately Rafe is still bitter about his parents' death, and is drinking himself into a stupor daily. So, Grace decides to 'save' him. And she succeeds in getting him to her brother's Christmas celebration.
Everything is fine until two thing happen: Rafe kisses her, and his Aunt spills the beans about them having been *alone* together for several days.
Will Rafe decide to marry her? Will Grace's father and brothers kill Rafe?
These questions are answered splendidly.
