A Christmas bride?

When wickedly handsome Geoffrey Westerley, Lord Staines, agrees to an arranged marriage with Eleanor Glove, she knows her duty. Geoffrey makes it plain that he wants nothing more than a sensible wife--and a Christmas Eve wedding to please his dying father. With a dearth of suitors, and her family's expectations weighing heavy, Eleanor agrees to the match, with one condition--a condition she cannot name or write upon her blank card. Despite Geoffrey's generous promise to give her anything her heart desires she cannot believe he will ever offer the only thing she truly wants for a Christmas gift...his love.

More than an arranged marriage?

As an earl's son, Geoffrey Westerley knows his duty--and since he cannot have the woman he loved and drove away, he will have the bride his father intends. Geoffrey knows his passionate nature scared away one lady, and he is determined to treat his shy intended with respect and restraint. But when he finds Eleanor beneath a kissing bough, tradition demands that he pluck a mistletoe berry and kiss her. He never anticipated his bride's warm response, and as the wedding draws near he begins to see there is more to his bride than a quiet exterior. There may be enough to her, in fact, to heal a wounded heart--and a passion deep enough to match his own.
