“I wish for my father to stay home, and never go out on a ship again unless he takes us with him. Oh, look!” Joy cried as she pointed to the sky. The stars were just beginning to come out. “Look, the stars are twinkling.” Joy hopped up and down. “That means I get my wish! You’re going to be my new mother!”

Emily inhaled sharply when Lord Geoffrey smiled. The man was heartbreakingly handsome when he smiled. When he looked at her, Emily fought the urge to press her hand to her breast. Drat!
Geoffrey’s gaze fastened on Lady Emily as soon as he and the other men entered the drawing room. She’d avoided his gaze and conversation with him at dinner, which made him perversely want to press her. Make her look him in the eye. Respond to him. She had no right to look so attractive. To cause his blood to heat when she looked him in the eye.
Emily remembered him from when she’d been a young girl. She liked him, she really did. Oh, bother! Could they find a future together, making Joy’s Christmas wish come true, or would she wind up wed to his brother – which was the reason she was here to visit in the first place?

Good Story I enjoyed reading this story. Touching story about a little girl's wishes. The main characters had known each other when they were younger, now Emily is able to accept his older brother as a husband when he comes home and the spark is there.
