Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sabrina Jeffries gives us a gift to cherish: "a moving Regency with heart, soul, and holiday spirit" (Publishers Weekly) about an unexpected Christmas reunion that's sparked by a cunning ruse, family secrets, and the mysterious ways of the heart.

Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has led an unabashed rogue's life, letting no woman near his heart. Inexplicably abandoned as a child to be raised by distant relatives, he never forgave his parents. Then came a letter that shook his resolve. A Christmas visit to Montcliff might prove his last chance to discover the truth of his past and come to terms with the stranger he calls "Mother."

But two surprises await him at Montcliff. His mother is perfectly healthy, nowhere near her deathbed, as Camilla Stuart's letter led him to believe. The second is Camilla herself, a lively vicar's widow, too bright and beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce. Though she is reason enough to prolong his stay, he is soon faced with other tantalizing riddles: What secrets lie in his mother's past to explain his childhood abandonment? Why is the captivating Mrs. Stuart so determined to mend the breach between mother and son? Meanwhile, Camilla herself is caught up in love's complications since the arrival of the irresistible earl. As his bold flirtation and suggestive whispers draw her dangerously close, can anything protect her vulnerable heart?

"Sharply witty, deliciously sexy, and infinitely endearing, this holiday gem strikes an emotional chord that will resonate with fans long after the book has been closed" (Library Journal).

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries unwraps a touching Regency tale brimming “with heart, soul, and holiday spirit” (Publishers Weekly)!

Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has never forgiven his parents for inexplicably abandoning him to distant relatives as a child. Nevertheless, when he receives word that the stranger he calls “Mother” is gravely ill, the unabashed rogue makes a rare return to Montcliff, his country estate. There he finds that the woman is perfectly healthy—and that he has fallen for a cunning ruse crafted by her lady’s companion, Mrs. Camilla Stuart. The lively vicar’s widow, too bright and beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce, is determined to reconcile the Earl and Lady Devonmont. None of them can predict the secrets, both heartening and shocking, divulged between a mother and son, and between two lovers, each haunted by their pasts, that will make Christmas night at Montcliff one to remember—and the glorious night after, one to treasure for a lifetime.
