Adam Rutledge, Viscount d’Arque, really rather loathes Christmas. The banal cheerfulness. The asinine party games. And, worst of all, the obligatory trip to the countryside. His grandmother, however, loves the holiday—and Adam loves his grandmother, so he’ll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they’re forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he’s ever met.
Sarah St. John really rather loathes rakes. The self-satisfied smirks. The sly predatory gazes. Oh, and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning. But in the spirit of the season, she’ll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home. But as the snowstorm rages, the Yule log crackles, and the tension rises, Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery, passionate kiss. If love is the true meaning of Christmas, it’s the one gift this mismatched pair can’t wait to unwrap.

This one is perfect for a chilly night because you will need a fan otherwise. I loved the instant tension between the two of them plus the added fun from the families. I had no clue how things would happen and didn’t expect the twist from her past at all. The proposal was so different and perfect for them.
Sarah has a good reason for not trusting many men and she doesn’t hold back her dislike either. I loved that she learned to look past his walls and the show he put on or others. She learned to open up and let her heart take over.
Adam hides the real him and puts walls up to protect himself. I loved that his grandmother knew the real him and pushed him to show it and open his heart. He also had a past that explained him more.
