The best gifts come wrapped in a kilt…
Beautiful Lady Rowena Pepperwirth can have any man her heart desires. Unfortunately no gentleman has elicited even the slightest flutter—until she meets the brooding Lord Forres at a holiday house party. With just one look at the dashing Scottish lord, Rowena suddenly knows what she wants for Christmas.
Quinn MacCauley, Lord Forres, is in need of a wife. When he meets the lovely Lady Rowena, he knows she’ll be a good mother to his daughter and a capable household manager. But Quinn doesn’t count on Rowena being the most tempting woman he’s ever met. He’s determined not to risk his heart, but Rowena’s just as determined to give him the greatest holiday gift of all—a chance at true love.
It’s Rowena’s first season. She is after all only eighteen years old. She has made her debut but no man has to this time caught her interest although she has caught the interest of most eligible men of the ton. When she meets Quinn MacCauley, Lord Forres things change.
Quinn is a widower of one year. He has a precocious daughter of three years who is need of a mother. He finds that woman in the guise of Rowena who is quite taken with his daughter when she saves the inquisitive child from falling into a fish pond.
Quinn has no need for love. He only needs a companion and a mother figure for Blair.
I loved this sweet and almost tragic Christmas based novella. Lauren Smith always entertains me with her stories no matter the genre. This one happens to be just my cup of tea though.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.25 of 5.0 flames. The heat is palpable between our hero and heroine although the love seems to be one sided in most of this tale.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the author as part of her private review group. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
