Publisher's Summary

When James Everard announced that he had invited a young lady home for the holidays, his father, the Earl of Gyllford, was astounded and skeptical. Could it be that Jamie was finally showing an interest in something other than horseplay with his friends? But when lovely Miss Evalyn Pennington arrived at Gyllford Manor, it was the earl who found himself inexplicably drawn to her winsome beauty. Having been dismissed from her post as a governess, Evalyn would long remember the kindness of being welcomed at Gyllford Manor when she had nowhere else to turn. But neither Evalyn nor the earl expected the light of love that filled their Christmas with some very special gifts.

Cute and Light

The story was cute and light-hearted. It felt alot like a Jane Austen book, with misunderstandings and mischief abound. Personally, I prefer more emotionally intense books that I can really sink my teeth into. However, this one is well written and a nice break from heavier stories.

Pretty good...

The book was entertaining, if a bit predictable. Characters were well framed. Another review didn't care for the narrator but I thought her performance was good.

Not so great

The strong accent did not help. Too much wondering around the plot.

But that is only my opinion.
