A Winter Scandal (Legend of St. Dwynwen)by Candace Camp
Synopses & Reviews
The first in New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp’s new Regency trilogy is a Christmas love story featuring a couple who find an abandoned baby in a manger—who may lead them to the truth in their own hearts.
Thea is a vicar’s daughter, dutiful to a fault—even if sometimes she tires of caring for everyone around her. One snowy day in December, Thea goes to church to check on the nativity scene—and finds a crying baby nestled in the manger! The babe has no identification other than a signet ring belonging to Gabriel, the local lord. Before Thea can think twice, she snatches up the child and marches off to give the earl a piece of her mind.
Gabriel at first thinks the windblown, furious woman who appears in his hall is accusing him of fathering her child—but it soon becomes clear that the baby is not his. Then how did the child come to have Gabriel’s ring wrapped in its swaddling? Gabriel, a bachelor, has no notion of how to care for an infant and begs Thea for her continued help. As the two work together to search for his rightful parents, they are powerfully drawn to one another. Gabriel can’t help but admire Thea’s fresh, striking beauty and her tender heart, while Thea daydreams about more than a friendship with the bold but honorable lord. But someone is determined to keep them from finding the truth about this wayward baby—even if it means silencing one or both of them for good.
"Bestseller Camp (An Affair Without End) launches a Regency trilogy with this sweet smalltown tale. Thea Bainbridge, a plain-faced 'old maid' of 27, pines over Lord Gabriel Morecombe, who seems to have entirely forgotten the torrid kiss he and Thea shared 10 years before. Then Thea finds an abandoned baby in the church's Nativity display, his clothes pinned with a brooch matching the Morecombe signet ring. Gabriel denies fathering the child and sweeps Thea away on a quest to find young Matthew's parents and get back in time for the squire's Christmas ball. Readers will enjoy the Austenesque details of village life as Camp piles up a soap opera's worth of affairs and betrayals." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp weaves a heartwarming tale, first in a thrilling new series, of Christmastime love, discovery, and scandal. . . .
When plain and proper Thea Bainbridge stumbles upon a baby in the manger of her church’s nativity, she is understandably shocked. Discovering a brooch bearing the insignia of Gabriel, Lord Morecombe, hidden among the child’s clothing, she is certain the dissolute rake is to blame. Incensed, Thea sets out to reproach the arrogant lord—only to find herself utterly swept away.
Gabriel is intrigued by the vivacity in Thea’s flashing gray eyes when she accuses him of fathering the orphan, even as he adamantly maintains his innocence. The brooch is one he remembers all too well, however, and Gabriel is determined to find the mother of the missing child. As the mystery around the baby deepens, Gabriel is continually thrown together with Thea—and finds himself growing more entranced every day.
Even with whispers of winter scandal swirling around them, they cannot deny the longing in their hearts. A longing which promises the best gift of all: a shelter from the storm . . . in each other’s arms.
A WINTER SCANDAL launches NYT bestselling author Candace Camp's new Regency trilogy, the "Legend of St. Dwynwen" series, with a Christmas love story.
