Description from amazon.com:
Christmas is a time for miracles … and second chances at love.
In her dazzling first Season, Lady Meredith Hargreaves gave her heart to Alistair Wakefield, the Marquess of Chetwyn, only to have it shattered when he proposed to another. And now that he’s free to pursue her? It matters little, because she’s on her way to the altar, heartbreak be damned.
Chetwyn once set aside his dreams in favor of duty and honor. But as Christmas approaches, he is determined to put his own desires first and lure Lady Meredith back into his arms, where she’s always belonged.
First he steals a dance; then he steals a kiss. But when they find themselves alone in an abandoned castle during a snowstorm, reignited passion consumes them both. And Chetwyn will have one last chance to steal back Meredith’s heart, once and for all.
This was a quick read and perfect for this busy time of the year. Heath makes us care for her characters with her well written prose. It was clever of Meredith to ascertain if either of the interested lords were after her only for her dowry. But perhaps she should have made sure before she loses her virginity to one. Now that Christmas is over this will help you to hang onto some of that warm Christmas spirit while you relax after all the hectic fun.
