He’s entirely the wrong sort of man. That’s what makes him so utterly right.
After a horrific marriage, widow Everleigh Chatterton is cynical and leery of men. She rarely ventures into society, and when she must, she barely speaks to them. Her one regret for refusing to marry again is that she’ll never bear children. As a favor to a friend, she reluctantly agrees to attend a Christmas house-party. Unfortunately, Griffin, Duke of Sheffield is also in attendance. Even though Everleigh has previously snubbed him, she can’t deny her attraction to the confident, darkly handsome duke.
For almost a year, Griffin has searched for the perfect duchess to help care for the orphan he’s taken on. He sets his sights on the exquisite, but unapproachable widow after her sweet interactions with the child impress him. Everleigh vows she’s not interested in him or any other man. But Griffin is convinced he can thaw her icy exterior and free the warm, passionate woman lurking behind the arctic facade. Only, as he pursues her, it’s his heart that’s transformed.
Can Everleigh learn to trust and love again? Will Griffin get his Christmas wish and make her his bride? Or, has he underestimated her wounds and fears and be forced to let her go?
This book is part of a series but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Can December mean more than sorrow?
Everleigh is a widow, who lost her daughetr Meredith in December.
She suffered through an unwanted marriage to the father of the man who forced himself on her.
Can Griffin, a duke, change her mind to never marry again?
Had the potential of being a great story but story line was rushed. Could have been great if characters were developed more. It was blah!
A wonderful story
What a wonderful story for this time of year! Collette Cameron writes a sweet tale of how the innocence of a child can bring light into the world. After suffering horrors no woman should, our heroine has (with the exception of a few close friends) shut herself away from world and love. Until one special December when the appearance of a child shows her how to smile, laugh and love again.
