Description

"Toasty fireside reading . . . Romain's gift for creating a strong sense of place, complex characters, and gripping situations carries this holiday tale." —Publishers Weekly

Like her four sisters, Lady Audrina Bradleigh is expected to marry a duke, lead fashion, and behave with propriety. Consequently, Audrina pursues mischief with gusto, attending scandalous parties and indulging in illicit affairs. But when an erstwhile lover threatens to ruin her reputation, Audrina has no choice but to find a respectable husband at once.

Who would guess that her search would lead her to Giles Rutherford, a blunt-spoken American on a treasure hunt of his own? When a Christmas snowstorm strands the pair at a country inn, more secrets are traded than gifts—along with kisses that require no mistletoe—and Audrina discovers even proper gentlemen have their wicked side . . .

"One of the best books I have ever read, bar none . . . Romain's exquisite prose and extraordinary storytelling skills take us on a splendid and unforgettable journey." —Fresh Fiction

"Tender, passionate, and written with a great deal of warmth . . . Theresa Romain has become a favorite author of mine." —Romantic Historical Reviews

Praise for the Holiday Pleasure series

"Hilarious and utterly adorable . . . Passionate and just plain fun." —Courtney Milan, New York Times–bestselling author

"Both playful and profound, and has a subtle, stirring power that will affect you long after you've read the final page . . . Intricate, intimate, and remarkable." —USA Today

"Give in to temptation—treat yourself to Theresa Romain's delightfully witty debut." —Sally MacKenzie, U

        September 1, 2014
        Romain’s fourth Regency-set Holiday Pleasures romance (after Season for Scandal) makes for toasty fireside reading. Winter travels bring rugged American Giles Rutherford together with not-so-proper-but-oh-so-British Lady Audrina Bradleigh. Their paths cross in the moorlands of northern England, where Giles and his father, Richard, are in hot pursuit of lost family jewels. Audrina is with fortune-hunter David Llewelyn, her former lover turned kidnapper. Her infuriated father, Lord Alleyneham, enlists the Rutherfords to capture Llewelyn and uphold the family honor, and vows to help them retrieve the missing gems in exchange. The thwarted Llewelyn threatens blackmail and otherwise casts gloom over the impending holidays. Meanwhile, as Giles and Audrina begin to fall in love, self-doubt plagues them both. Romain’s gift for creating a strong sense of place, complex characters, and gripping situations carries this holiday tale of improbable love.
