Like her four sisters, Lady Audrina Bradleigh is expected to marry a duke, lead fashion, and behave with propriety. Consequently, Audrina pursues mischief with gusto, attending scandalous parties and indulging in illicit affairs. But when an erstwhile lover threatens to ruin her reputation, Audrina has no choice but to find a respectable husband at once.
Who would guess that her search would lead her to Giles Rutherford, a blunt-spoken American on a treasure hunt of his own? When a Christmas snowstorm strands the pair at a country inn, more secrets are traded than gifts—along with kisses that require no mistletoe—and Audrina discovers even proper gentlemen have their wicked side…
Audrina has tried to be bad, and yes she has succeed. (smexy times and not married! *gasps for air* Bad bad girl ;) But her wicked ways have caught up with her, it's not just her reputation on the line, her sister's impending marriage too.
But I did like her. She had spirit.
Then there is Giles, the American who with his father is searching for something that belonged to his mother. Obviously they will fall in love. But class is in between, an ocean is in between and something else. But love will conquer, this is a romance after all.
And I did like him too. He said things he should not say.
There is these two falling in love. Fun other characters. A mystery with boxes and a bit of drama cos of Audrina's mistake.
And in the end, her sister Petra's book totally needs to be written too ;).
A fun holiday book :D
