Miss Angeline Marsden has a defiant nature and makes no apologies for it. Her parents would prefer she didn’t participate in the local suffragette group, but she believes all women’s voices should be heard. After she finds herself in trouble she can’t extricate herself from, she has no choice but to turn to the one man she’s always loved and who treats her like a sister.
Much to the dismay of Lucian St. John, the marquess of Severn, he’s always been drawn to Angeline. She’s his one irresistible temptation; however, she’s also his best friend’s sister and off-limits. When she finds herself in a mess of her own making, he comes to her rescue and offers to marry her.
Marriage is the last thing either of them expected, yet the one thing they both wanted but were too afraid to ask. Will they find a way to open their hearts to each other and obtain their Christmas wish?
