Blush sensuality level: This is a sweet romance (kisses only, no sexual content).
Juliet Robertson isn't looking forward to her Christmas. In anticipation of accepting the marriage offer of a local solicitor, she's written her friend Lord Vane to tell him their clandestine correspondence must cease.
To Juliet's combined delight and dismay, her news brings the handsome Marquess to her father's isolated farmhouse in Northumberland. Vane even rides through a horrible snowstorm to reach her. Juliet's letters gave no clue she was considering matrimony to another, and Vane fears he's waited too long to make his feelings known.
Stranded on the farm with Juliet's voluminous family, her hostile mother and her near fiancé, the polite and kindhearted Vane must find some way to convince Juliet they share a love that can overcome all obstacles.
