Wrathell, travels to London where heâ€™s expected to fulfill longstanding
expectations and propose to his former commanderâ€™s daughter. Wrathell
longs to ease the strained relationship with his ducal father. The key
may be an unfinished portrait of his late brother.
Honora Baynard has a terrible facial scar as a result of a childhood
injury. She has never forgotten Leoline, who came to her defense when
other children tormented her. Now, her over-protective artist father
keeps her indoors, creating the beautiful detail work that makes his
paintings so sought after.

mutual attraction. Can Wrathell convince Honora that for Christmas, heâ€™d
like to give her not only passion and pleasure, but his heart to keep
for her own?
A PRINCE IN HER STOCKING by Shana Galen
Lady Cassandra has always done as sheâ€™s been told. Meek and malleable,
sheâ€™s lived a life devoid of passion. When she meets a handsome man
rumored to be an exiled prince, she sees one last chance at excitement.
Little does she know, too much excitement can be dangerous.
When itâ€™s cold outsideâ€¦
Prince Lucien of Glynaven flees to England when his family is killed in
a revolution. Homeless and penniless, he spends the winter days in a
small bookshop, searching for documents his mother secreted among a box
of books shipped to London. Lady Cassandra is the first woman in months
to look at him like a man and not a vagrant, and he canâ€™t resist
flirting with her. When assassins find Lucien, he must end the budding
romance and abandon his last chance to reclaim his identity.
A prince is the perfect hero to make Christmas cozy.
Cass Ashbrooke married for duty. Now that sheâ€™s a widow, she remains
under the thumb of her late husbandâ€™s sister. When Cass glimpses an
attractive man in her favorite bookshop, she offers him friendship,
hoping to add a spark of excitement to her dull life. The princeâ€™s
kisses are more passionate than Cass imagined, but she and Lucien need a
holiday miracle if theyâ€™re to thwart his enemies, find the missing
treasure, and celebrate a happy new year together.

The lady who wrote that letter is bold, courageous, and lusty--not at
all like his sweet, demure Hazel. And yet, when Hazel accosts Gervaise
beneath the mistletoe, he's in for quite the holiday surprise!
