I read "The Porcelain Madonna" by Mary Balogh.
Darcy Austin, Earl of Kevern, just wants to get through Christmas. He is strolling down the street when he notices a woman admiring Christmas items in a window. When he sees she is about to be robbed by a young cutpurse, Darcy catches the thief red-handed. Julie Bevan forgives the young boy for trying to take her purse. From that moment on, Darcy finds himself trying to help the impoverished woman and the boy who claims that he needs money to feed his starving family.
This was an cute Christmas themed novella. I loved that the young boy was giving tips to Darcy about how to win over the heroine. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
