It's Christmas 1817 and the Duke of Danby is matchmaking again!
Spend the holidays in Yorkshire with freshly fallen snow, Yuletide balls and mistletoe kisses.
The Duke's Mistletoe Madness includes:
JERRICA KNIGHT-CATANIA's LORD HALESWORTH'S HAPPY HOLIDAY
Miss Leah Whitton is feeling quite morose as the holidays approach this year. Her sister has flown the coop, now happily wed, and the man Leah’s been pining for since she was a young girl doesn’t even know she’s alive. Not that it would matter. Her mother and sister have always made it quite clear that Leah is lacking in manners and etiquette. Still, if Christmas wishes really did come true, Lord Halesworth is who she would wish for. * Jonathan Yeardley, Earl of Halesworth, may have a wealth of charm and good looks, but he hasn’t a penny to his name. With his estate in shambles, he isn’t quite certain what he’s going to do. But a mysterious invitation to the Duke of Danby’s Yule Ball has him wondering if perhaps his Christmas might be merry after all.
ROSE GORDON's I'LL BE YOURS FOR CHRISTMAS
Elizabeth, Dowager Countess of Townson has found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. (Or so she thinks!)* Thomas Daltry, has found himself at the right place at the right time. (Only he doesn’t know it!) * The only thing this pair thinks they know is: all gentlemen, save Elizabeth’s son and brother are depraved; and all ladies are contemptuous. * Perhaps all that that needed is one chance encounter, sending two jaded people to spend three days with Danby will result in their own happily forever more?
AILEEN FISH's NO MISTLETOE REQUIRED
Still reeling from her major disappointment of the past Season in London, Lady Barbara Graves panics when she receives her summons to spend Christmas with her notorious matchmaking great-uncle The Duke of Danby. She’d expected Lord Aaron Harlow to propose to her before the end of the season, but he went off to India without a word. Having asked her brother to write Lord Aaron, she’s certain he’ll arrive in time to save her from marrying whatever dupe her uncle has chosen for her. * Theo Jardine is an investing genius whom Danby admires, although he’s the youngest grandson of an earl and never likely to inherit. He accepts the duke’s invitation to visit Danby Castle but plans to spend the holidays with his own family. When he realizes there’s matchmaking going on—and he’s a target—he tries to leave, but Danby dangles a carrot in front of him: an offer to front the entire scheme. * Theo isn’t Aaron, but Barbara’s attraction grows the more time she spends with him at the castle. Then she discovers her uncle is bribing Theo to marry her. Will she ever find true love with a man who loves her in return?
