A spicy-hot story of a heroine with a flair for enterprising embroidery and a botanist single father hero. Can a scandal that compromises Amelia's reputation give their love a second chance?
Robert Danbury wants the mistletoe kiss Amelia denied him years ago, but nothing more. After losing his wife, and with a daughter to protect, love is an unthinkable risk. He just wants to make Christmas merry for his ailing mother and get back to growing pineapples in his glasshouse.
After her heart was broken, Amelia made a new life in London and a business helping ladies fake embroidery skills. She's not going to let Christmas spoil that or make the mistake of falling for Robert again. Passion flares under the mistletoe, but they can't change the past. Especially when Robert's daughter is a constant reminder.
Then they're caught innocently in bed together and Robert has an instant to choose: Amelia's reputation, their lost love, or his conscience.
