The Duke of Huntington, handsome, wealthy and a confirmed bachelor, requires peace and quiet for the holidays at his ancestral estate, Huntington Ridge. But his sister and friends, all widows, are tired of peace and quiet. They're desperate for all the festivities and lusty frolics of the Christmas season! How can they prevail against the Duke's demands? One simple ingredient: they have a secret weapon and aren't afraid to use her -- the beautiful Meredith Lambert, his childhood friend, who's back in England after a ten-year hiatus on the Continent. Can she win him over to their plans? But, more important, can she hold off his amorous seductions? And does she even want to? Join the fun as Huntington Ridge is invaded by passionate women, cranky relatives, quirky neighbors, a dashing Major, a lovelorn vicar -- and a snowstorm like no one has seen in years!
