A Christmas in Manchester
Miss Evelyn Allen has led a quiet life in Worcestershire her twenty-one years as the devoted daughter of Pastor Joshua Allen and his wife. She always assumed she'd wed one day since her siblings had all done so, but no man had ever appealed to her in a way that she felt she could look across the breakfast table at him forever.
Until he came into her life…
The Duke of Manchester never expected to be left robbed and bleeding in the road miles from home. He knew his chances of survival were practically nil until an angel driving an old wooden wagon dragged him into her house where she and her mother nursed him back to health.
Even though she knows him for a lord by his manners and clothing, Eve has no idea that the man she is falling in love with is a Duke. A man so far above her she shouldn't even be speaking with him.
To him, their stations matter not, but can he convince her that she is all he wants for Christmas?
