I enjoyed this Christmas Regency.
Camilla Twinsbury has always followed the rules of polite society as set forth by her exceedingly proper mother. But nothing in her upbringing has prepared her for what Fate holds in store. For no sooner does Camilla arrive for a quiet Christmas in Criswold than she finds herself relying on the kindness of a wickedly appealing stranger. Tall, dark and devestating, Nathaniel La Plante is everything her mother warned her about. And the more time she spends in his company, the harder it is to heed the dictates of convention.
Footloose writer Nathaniel La Plante never felt the urge to settle down. Then his elder brother was lost at sea, and Nathaniel found himself with a title, a manor, and a ready-made family. Now, he's trying his best to give his three young nieces a Christmas to remember. But when, in the midst of their preparations, a delicious damsel in distress arrives on his doorstep, it's all Nathaniel can do to focus on the matter at hand. For in a season of surprises, she may be the greatest, a woman who can disrupt the peace, invade his dreams, and make him believe that her love would the greatest gift of all.
