Burrowes's fourth Victorian-era MacGregor novel (following The MacGregor's Lady) carefully builds up to a satisfying payoff. Lady Joan Flynn, fleeing an unpleasant encounter, is stranded at a train station; Dante Hartwell steps in to help her out. They liked each other well enough in the ballroom, so the idea of a mutually beneficial marriage forms as they head to a Scottish house party for the holidays. Dante has been looking for a highborn wife to elevate the prospects of his sister and children and give him access to potential investors for his textile mills. Joan needs a husband who understands her passion for clothing design and is willing to consider marrying a woman who might be pregnant. Their developing happiness is threatened when the scandal nipping at Joan's heels escalates into blackmail that could ruin them both. There's more cuddling than steamy sex, and some plot elements lack subtlety, but this is still a high-quality romance and a keeper for series fans.

What a lady needs for Christmas
Grace Burrowes never disappoints! Loved it & enjoyed the humor in it too! I've read all her historical romances & can't wait to read her new contemporary romances coming next month.
Grace Burrowes Never Disappoints
You always know what you're going to get and such was the case in What A Lady Needs For Christmas. I will admit that keeping the family of characters straight did require me continuously referring back to the family tree. Often times they use their titled name and it really was a menagerie of characters. However, it was easy keeping Joan and Dante straight and it was also nice to have a little preview of the fondness shared between Hector and Margs. As I neared the end I was so caught up in it that I didn't go to sleep until 3am. It's a good read and one that you won't have any difficulty getting through.
Loved this book
Gave this book five stars. I just loved this story so much that I finished it in one day. I recommend all of Grace Burrowes books. Happy reading.
