Description from Amazon.com:
The Marquis of Wythebury, is expecting an ordinary Christmastide at Hurst—until he is set upon by a beautiful miss who takes him to task for not allowing his young nephews to play outside. In his mind, a five and seven year old needn’t get chilled in the snow; better to plop them in front of the fire with a book. Few people have ever been brave enough to challenge him over anything, much less the rearing of his wards. The cheeky Miss Prim has no such compunction. No matter how fetching he finds her, he can’t give in to his attraction…for she is the sister of his best friend.
Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about her kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play,
A playful young woman and a serious Marquis. Lillian Prim is a fun woman who knows her own mind and will stand up for the young boys against their uncle, the marquis. Seth, the Marquis of Wythebury, is doing his best to raise his orphan nephews Fallon and Heron and he doesn’t need any help from Miss Prim. No matter that he is instantly besotted with her when she fires a snowball at him and scores a facial bullseye. Miss Prim has feelings for the marquis also but she knows they are incompatible he being stodgy and she not.
This is a delightful, Christmasy read and I highly recommend it. Just sit back after the wrapping and decorating and enjoy a short quiet heartwarming romance.
I think he needs to come in for some cocoa by the fire.
