'Twas the Week Before Christmas...
Suspecting he can never be the man Emma Peters wishes him to be, Lucien Morgen, the fifth duke of Willyngham, decides to break off their long-standing engagement...only to discover the innocent fiancé he set aside for years has unexpectedly blossomed into a passionate, irresistible woman.
When All Through the House...
As the family counts down to Christmas, everyone else seems to realize Lucien and Emma are truly meant to be--except the oblivious couple. With the help of some very mischievous children, Emma and Lucien are about to discover that a little mischief beneath the mistletoe might just open their hearts to love.
Originally published in A Christmas Together by Avon Books, this new edition has been completely revised, with all new scenes.
This title lives up to its…title…
I LOVE Tanya Anne Crosby, and this is right in line with her historical romances – and set in the cold 1800’s around Christmas. Emma Peters has been engaged for a long time to the Duke of Willyngham, Lucien Morgan, even though they haven’t seen each other in three years. He has it in his head that he isn’t worthy of her affection, and has convinced himself that she’s still the dull girl he left behind all those years ago. He comes to her brother’s to break things off. Little does he realize that little Emma has blossomed into a passionate, engaging woman. The family sees that these two are perfect for each other. Emma’s nephews and nieces decide to take matters into their own hands, hence the mischief! While stuck with Emma at her brother’s residence, the two find themselves drawn to each other.
I think my favorite part of this story is all the little family traditions and storytelling we see. Emma and Lucien are obviously destined to be together – and the love the family has for each other has shown Lucien what a real family could be like. And so they both find love under the mistletoe. *swoon*
