Description from

The Best Gifts are the Unexpected Ones...

To escape a scandal, Lady Joan Flynn flees her family’s estate in the Scottish Highlands. She needs a husband by Christmas, or the holidays will ring in nothing but ruin.

Practical, ambitious mill owner Dante Hartwell offers to marry Joan, because a wellborn wife is his best chance of gaining access to aristocratic investors.

As Christmas—and trouble—draw nearer, Dante and Joan’s marriage of convenience blossoms into unexpected intimacy, for true love often hides beneath the most unassuming holiday wrapping…


Yes, all you romance lovers, Grace Burrowes has done it again. She has given us a damsel in distress, a hunky, hot hero to come to her rescue, a smarmy, evil villain and some adorable children that this reader hopes for more of in future books. So well composed and written you will lose yourself in the chill of the Victorian Scottish winter. You will have your senses assaulted by the smell of the coal fired Steam Engine trains. You will be seduced along with the heroine by a hero who is kind, good and tough when he needs to be. The romance here is slow developing but ultimately superbly sensual. This couple does not have instant sexual rapport which is unusual for the genre. The story is taking place at the holidays but that is really incidental to the plot. I highly recommend this book. I highly recommend this author.

( I’ve been reading some new release holiday romances and saving my reviews for closer to the holidays but this one I couldn’t wait to post.  Go and pick it up, read it now, you won’t be sorry.)

  4. Thank you for sharing your review. This is one of the ones I have added to my TBR List, and after reading your review it has made me excited to read it during the Christmas season. I just love the Christmas season and reading books that take place during the holiday season makes it even more fun.
