Like her four sisters, Lady Audrina Bradleigh is expected to marry a duke, lead fashion, and behave with propriety. Consequently, Audrina pursues mischief with gusto, attending scandalous parties and indulging in illicit affairs. But when an erstwhile lover threatens to ruin her reputation, Audrina has no choice but to find a respectable husband at once.
Who would guess that her search would lead her to Giles Rutherford, a blunt-spoken American on a treasure hunt of his own? When a Christmas snowstorm strands the pair at a country inn, more secrets are traded than gifts—along with kisses that require no mistletoe—and Audrina discovers even proper gentlemen have their wicked side…
I think the main reason for giving the book five stars is Giles the hero of the book. Such a great character! I liked almost everybody in the book, but Giles is my favourite. Besides the great characters, the book has it all, romance, mystery, emotions wrapped up nicely in a Christmas setting. I haven’t read the other books in the series (this one is the forth), but the book is absolutely worth reading by itself. Enjoy!
