A lonely earl, a competent heroine of dubious origins, family secrets, and three mischievous boys…
The Earl of Chadbourn feels trapped managing his widowed sister’s ruined estate and grieving son. Loneliness overwhelms him, but the woman who handles the neighboring farm brilliantly draws him like a moth to flame. Catherine Wheatly has her own problems—two mischievous brothers, a neglectful father, and a questionable birth. With Christmas coming, Catherine's brothers pull his withdrawn nephew you into their schemes and threaten havoc in the barnyard, the earl's sister refuses all celebration, and Catherine's father withholds old family secrets. Can Will and Catherine work together to repair the damaged estate and far more damaged family? Dare they hope for love in the bargain?
