A proper widow. A rakish marquess. He rescued her from thieves, but will she be able to save him from himself?

When Violet Laurens is rescued from highwaymen, the furthest thing from her mind is that her heart might tumble next. She loves her independent life, no matter her lonely bed. The handsome stranger reawakens the passion she thought buried along with her husband, pushing her to new heights of desire. But she knows it's only a matter of time before he remembers his name and leaves her.

The dissolute Marquess of Kittrick has vowed never to marry, causing a rift in his family that sets him on the road just in time to do battle with ruffians intent on stealing a lady's coins--and more. Discovering the fiery wanton beneath the widow's oh-so-proper demeanor makes him want nothing more than to forget who he is for just a bit longer. Maybe forever.

When Kit is forced to acknowledge who he is, will the truth trump their shared passion, and the love they can't quite admit to? Or will Violet overcome her fear--and Kit his dissolute ways--and be able to lay claim to A Marquess for Christmas?

*Book source ~ NetGalley Widow Violet Laurens is rescued from highwaymen by a stranger and when he is injured she takes him home to care for him. When he wakes up with no memory of who he is, other than the name Kit, she and her servants continue to care for him. But as Christmas approaches Violet worries he has a family out there, looking for him, so she does all she can to help him regain his memory. Close contact only increases their attraction to each other until they give into the heat between them. Kit’s memory is slowly returning in bits and pieces, but will it be enough for a Christmas miracle? The writing is great and the characters are relatable. Kit is an ass most of the time, but I think that’s the point. His change is noticeable and it makes it worth putting up with him. Don’t get me wrong, he’s attractive and charming and flirty, but his attitude leaves a lot to be desired though I can understand why he is the way he is. His older sister, ugh. I really couldn’t stand her. I think she is too over-the-top, but at least she loves Kit and isn’t just an outright bitch. All-in-all this is a hot historical romance with two different characters that is refreshing to read.

A Marquess For Christmas by Vivienne Westlake is a fantastic historical romance. Ms Westlake has delivered a Christmas treat for reader with this amazing story. Violet and Kit's story is loaded with lovable characters, drama, action and sizzle. I enjoyed A Marquess For Christmas and look forward to reading more from Ms Westlake in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
