For three years, Lady Veronica Smithson has been perfectly happy as a widow - and thoroughly independent. Still, the right gentleman could provide the benefits of marriage without the tedious restrictions. And in Sir Sebastian Hadley-Attwater, renowned explorer and rogue, Veronica is sure she has found him. Sebastian will come into his inheritance in a matter of weeks - if his family deems him responsible enough. There’s no better way to prove his maturity than with a home and a wife.
But though the lovely Veronica will share his bed, she steadfastly refuses to marry. However, Sebastian has a plan: an intimate sojourn at his new country house will surely change Veronica’s mind. For Sebastian never takes "no" for an answer. And even in the midst of mischief-making relatives and unexpected complications, he intends to persuade his Christmas mistress that they belong together - in this and every season to come.

If you enjoy formulaic romance for light reading, you will probably enjoy it. No real character development and came off like a recycled plotline.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I didn't like this story ! Dull ! But the narrator is lovely as always . I do not recommend this book at all
I have only heard the audio version
The end - what the legacy truly was.
She is fantastic. Brings such life to this story. Funny as only Victoria Alexander can do.
You Went Through All This for That?
I love Victoria Alexander's books and this one does not fail. Funny, witty and just plain good entertainment. I wish all her books were audiobooks. I have all her books but audiobooks just gives it another dimension.
His Mistress by Christmas was a funny romance that keeped me laughing and will listen to again and again.
