Responsible, level-headed, and invariably good-humored, Hugo Lowell, Viscount Saxby, has his plans for Christmas—and his future—all mapped out. Until a surprise invitation lands him at the country estate of Harold Lyons, the rich and powerful Duke of Whitborough.
Drawn into his host’s charming, often contentious family circle, Hugo finds himself matching wits and words with the Duke’s eldest daughter, Lady Madeline. Striking, clever, and as sharp-tongued as she is sharp-witted, Madeline is the polar opposite of the placid, proper beauty Hugo intends to marry. So why can’t he get her out of his mind? And how is it that she can persuade him to attempt things he’s never tried before? As Advent yields to Christmas, Hugo’s future becomes far less predictable…and infinitely more exciting.
The Advent of Lady Madeline
First thank you for giving me my Wish!
I can't believe how much action Pamela could put into this Novella. It will be from Christmas time and young people finding their Loves! Lord Saxby, Hugo, is looking for a wife. He is going to a House Party when his sister pushed him to go to a party sooner. Spoiler. He finds a mother cat in his room. Madeline then takes the cat. She isn't so much to marry. She finds she likes Hugo. He finds he really likes her. There is the usual entertainments and Maddie puts on stage plays with the guests as players. It was a different way to put lots of Shakespeare works in the story. She hears him with his brother and it chases her away. Spoiler. You will have to read this novella to see how this ends. I fell for this story and I would like you to fall in too! I hope you will not let this story get away. Enjoy your reading! I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.
