All she wants is peace and anonymity...
Lady Sophie Windham has maneuvered a few days to herself at the ducal mansion in London before she must join her family for Christmas in Kent. Suddenly trapped by a London snowstorm, she finds herself with an abandoned baby and only the assistance of a kind, handsome stranger standing between her and complete disaster.
But Sophie's holiday is about to heat up...
With his estate in ruins, Vim Charpentier sees little to feel festive about this Christmas. His growing attraction for Sophie Windham is the only thing that warms his spirits-but when Sophie's brothers whisk her away, Vim's most painful holiday memories are reawakened.
It seems Sophie's been keeping secrets, and now it will take much more than a mistletoe kiss to make her deepest wishes come true...
(Terra's Thoughts) Christmas miracles do happen to those who are good. This delightful story deals with true love in it's purest and most innocent form. If you are looking for a story of slap and tickle sexual encounters then look else where. Yes there is the occasional sex here but the main emphasis is on True Love! Quite refreshing if you ask me.
Lady Sophia Windham finally has some time alone or so she thinks. The family has removed to Kent for the Holiday Season with the promise from Sophia that she will come along at a later time with her three stubborn, nosy and bossy brothers.
Our Sophie is a rare beauty with courage, dependability and a strength that takes a snow storm for her family to realize that she is the pillar on which all her siblings lean on in times of need. How could Lady Sophia possibly find anything but quiet in a house devoid of servants and family in the biggest snowstorm of the era?
Vim Charpentier is a tall handsome devil that has finally caved in and is returning to his family seat in Kent after a long absence. Dreading the holiday season and his family has gone on long enough and as Vim arrives in London his luck seems to go on it's usual route downward as he is trapped by the biggest storm to hit London in some time. Little does he know that the fates will throw a wee bairn and a lovely lady right in his path to show him that the bah humbug of his ways must change if he is to follow his heart.
Grace Burrowes has given us the most romantic story of Christmas miracles, wishes to come true as the love and purity of the deepest part of our souls pulsates its way into our hearts.
This is not a action packed story but a touching story that takes time to peel back all its layers and reveal the hidden delights of true humanity. There is enough sexual content to appease the appetite and more than enough Christmas cheer and wishes come true to sate even the most bah humbug of hearts.
