“Tanya Anne Crosby writes remarkable love stories.” —New York Times bestselling author, Lisa Kleypas
Once upon a time, Alexandra Grace Huntington believed in fairy tales. She oohed and aahed over gowns from Courtauld’s, never wore black unless in mourning, always minded her social graces, and never, ever indulged her inner bluestocking. Now her world has come crashing down like a thousands shards of a glittering glass. Her father is a dastard, her mother blames her for once taking his side. (Rightly so, considering what Lexie has learned.) She’s home alone for the holidays, alone, no siblings, no friends, and not a shred of remaining pride. But that’s all well and good, so far as she’s concerned, because everything she thought she knew was clearly wrong. Her best friend, Claire Wentworth had right all along, and the Universe had seen fit to reward Claire with, of all things, a crown (literally). But while Lexie once aspired to the same, she has changed. When she’s unexpectedly invited to celebrate one last holiday with Claire, she can’t accept quickly enough… only how did one comport oneself after all that was said and done?
Benjamin W. Wentworth III, the seventh Earl of Highbury, has been through his own travails. He nearly drove his family to ruin, and now, after spending weeks in debtor’s prison, and coming shockingly close to losing his life and endangering his sweet sister, he realizes that all that glitters is not gold. The last thing he desires is to saddle himself with a woman like Lexie Huntington, with whom he once shared a passion for the season. Now, he’d rather choke himself with a silk cravat than endure a single instant with someone so vain, so self-indulgent, so giddy and witless. He wishes his sister would leave off trying to push them together—and must’t she realize how much he has changed?
When Lexie arrives to celebrate one last Christmas before Claire leaves for Meridian, it is all he can do to avoid the empty-headed chit. Unfortunately, his matchmaking sister has festooned the entire house with holly and mistletoe, and to make matters worse, Lexie is proving to be someone else entirely, and he’s about to be schooled in the fine art of kissing beneath the mistletoe.
