Description

When a proper lady attends a rakish lord's holiday party, the fun and games lead to a gamble for love in a "charming Christmas Regency confection" (Publishers Weekly).
Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation for daring, wagering, and delightful wickedness. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas extravaganza—and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Unable to refuse the challenge, he will simply have to act as Miss Oliver's protector . . .
Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she refuses to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures. When Lord Xavier's invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues' gallery, she just may teach her gentlemen friends a thing or two about daring . . .

        Romain dishes up a charming Christmas Regency confection complete with a sassy dowager aunt, a virginal bluestocking, and a pair of rakish cousins vying for the opportunity to despoil said virgin or at the very least compromise her pristine reputation. Alexander Edgware, earl of Xavier, is renowned for his annual days-long Christmas party, featuring over-the-top holiday dining, imbibing, and games at a sumptuous Surrey estate. After Xavier's cousin, the marquess of Lockwood, challenges him to invite a debutante and see whether she can withstand the debauchery, Louisa Oliver and her aunt join the fun. When Louisa stumbles upon the truth behind Xavier's invitation, Xavier and Lockwood begin to openly vie for her attentions. Eventually, following several bouts of playful persiflage, Louisa learns which bachelor is heartless and which has a heart of true gold. A sweet treat for Regency fans. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Folio Literary Management.

        Resigned to eventual spinsterhood but wanting a bit of excitement first, quiet, scholarly, and very proper Louisa Oliver accepts the rather surprising invitation from Alexander Edgware, Earl of Xavier, to attend his scandalous annual Christmas house party, initially unaware that she is the subject of a wager. In order to win, Xavier must entice Louisa to stay for the party's entire fortnight. However, it doesn't take Xavier long to realize her reputation could be at risk--and it's up to him to protect her from some of his guests. If only he can keep her safe from himself. The question is will Louisa let him? VERDICT A smart, bookish young lady with a mischievous plan and a conflicted rake who doesn't quite live up to his reputation find unexpected romance (and a bit of mystery) in this holiday charmer that is rife with lively wit, delightful prose, and an abundance of unforgettable characters. Louisa's "lists" and the clever chapter headings are plusses. Romain (Season for Temptation) lives in Wichita, KS.
