After Antonia Madeley's mother died, she learned just how heartless her father could be. Not caring for his daughter's grief, Lord Madeley forbade her to play her beloved violin, and then remarried with indecent haste to a woman who made it plain she'd rather Antonia wasn't there. The engagement that'd been arranged between Antonia and Dracon, Lord Trawden, offered no escape. Dracon was clearly still in love with his late wife, Catherine. Facing a life of always being second best, Antonia ran away.
Five years on, Antonia receives the news her father is gravely ill. Perhaps the time has come to make amends and go to his bedside. However, traveling in inclement weather and on treacherous roads, her carriage is involved in a terrible accident, and when she regains consciousness, she's being cared for at Lionshead, Dracon's family seat! The feelings she has for Dracon haven't dimmed, but she has no reason to believe he's stopped loving Catherine either. With Christmas only a few days away, will Antonia be forced to endure yet another bleak midwinter, or is it possible that a yuletide miracle will gladden her lonely heart?
