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 him 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 cute xmas novella is always nice, and I like Grey's books. They are sweet.
Here we have Lillian and Seth. And yes at first they do not really seem like a match. He is so busy protecting his nephews that he forgets they need to live too. And she is all boys should play! But they really fancy each other too. But the arguments they would have!
So yes they meet at a house party, flirt (and yes things must move fast, it is just over xmas after all). She is the Duke's sister in law, he should know better. They argue, they make up and love happily ever after. Everyone can change.
Sweet and short.
Sweet and short.
