Regular Christi readers have been in love with Alice (and anxiously awaiting her story) for what seems like ages. Rhys we knew by reputation only, but we have been swooning over his elder brother “Good guy Miles” since his debut in “To Woo a Widow” last year. We all knew his bad boy younger brother would be something amazing. Let me tell you, we were right!
Christi has a way of writing characters that you can’t help but love. Alice has so much spark and independence. She’s a heroine you will truly fall in love with right alongside her hero. As for that gentleman, no one could resist the charms of a rouge who has snowball fights with his nieces. No one.
This story is splendid. I laughed, I shrieked in outrage, I sighed in contentment, to say it moved me would be insufficient. Christi’s winter romances are always deliciously warm in all the best ways. These two sizzled and sparked from the very first page. It just got better. Witty banter, cameos by old friends, adorable antics of little girls, a scholarly and a pair of lovers determined to live life to the fullest society be damned are just a few of the many many things that make this story so marvelous.
If you are looking for a splendid story to slip into, I highly recommend giving Rhys and Alice a chance to pull you into their world.
