Can the magic of Christmas melt his frozen heart?
Theodore Winslow, Duke of Greystone, has no wish to celebrate Christmas, but he's returning to his ancestral home for his widowed mother's sake. Knowing her mission is to secure him a wife, he'll be keeping his heart on ice—better that than to have it repeatedly broken.
Patience Leybourne is spending Yuletide at Castle Greystone, hoping to revive the happiness of family Christmases past. When she's asked by the Dowager Duchess to do the decorations, she's delighted. But the next morning she finds her mistletoe and garlands torn down. Who could be so lacking in festive spirit?
It's the Duke of Greystone himself who's destroyed Patience's efforts to bring cheer. And there's no comfort or joy in realizing he's the mystery man whom she so passionately kissed at a masked ball. How will she manage to endure his company all the way through to Twelfth Night—when that fiery attraction is still burning between them?
