Description from Amazon.com:

Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has never forgiven his parents for inexplicably abandoning him to distant relatives as a child. Nevertheless, when he receives word that the stranger he calls “Mother” is gravely ill, the unabashed rogue makes a rare return to Montcliff, his country estate. There he finds that the woman is perfectly healthy—and that he has fallen for a cunning ruse crafted by her lady’s companion, Mrs. Camilla Stuart. The lively vicar’s widow, too bright and beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce, is determined to reconcile the Earl and Lady Devonmont. None of them can predict the secrets, both heartening and shocking, divulged between a mother and son, and between two lovers, each haunted by their pasts, that will make Christmas night at Montcliff one to remember—and the glorious night after, one to treasure for a lifetime.

Here we have a good book with a serious plot that Ms. Jeffries relieves with spots of humor, a story of true love between two damaged souls who heal each other and loved ones around them.

There is a strong feeling of winter and Christmas spirit. I found it hard to put this book down because I kept turning pages to find out what the scandalous family secret was all about. It was not as predictable as I thought while reading, although it explained the reluctance of the characters to reveal their secrets. All was tied up in a neat Christmas package at the end although I felt it could have been a bit shorter than its 392 pages.
