Holidays are best spent with the ones you love, especially when adventure is in the offing.
It’s the Christmastide season, and the Hawkins family is at their country estate in Kent. Emmaline, the Countess of Archewyne, is excited, for it’s her first Christmas with her little family as well as one of the few she’s spent in England.
Passing his leisure time with his loved ones gives Miles Lawrence Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Archewyne, great pleasure, as does anticipating their faces when they open his gifts. And he’s found the most splendid thing for his wife—a fresh archeological dig of ancient Roman origin on his property.
When plans for Christmas Eve preparations go awry and Miles is taken hostage at gunpoint, Emmaline is at her wit’s end. Heartsick and worried, only a clue from some overly affectionate geese will be able to save her beloved’s life. If she can reach him in time, they’ll both find themselves beguiled on a Christmas morning.
About the Author
Sandra Sookoo is a bestselling author who firmly believes every person deserves acceptance and a happy ending.

Reading romance is a lot like eating fine chocolates—you can’t just have one. Good thing books don’t have calories!
When she’s not wearing out computer keyboards, Sandra spends time with her real life Prince Charming in central Indiana where she’s been known to goof off and make moments count because the key to life is laughter. A Disney fan since the age of ten, when her soul gets bogged down and her imagination flags, a trip to Walt Disney World is in order. Nothing fuels her dreams more than the land of eternal happy endings, hope and love stories.

One of my favorite couples returns!!! Trying to settle and be a family at their home in Kent, Miles Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Achewyne and his countess, Emmaline are living the dream with their children. Or are they? Both initially met on an adventure and have lived most of their lives anything but sedately! Whether they seek the out of the ordinary or it seeks them, has yet to be determined! Miles is excited to present his wife with a wonderful archaeological find on the estate that will keep them both busy for awhile. So what could happen on this ideal Christmas Holiday? Well it involves a few geese who think Miles is their leader and some determined brigands to make the time memorable. One thing you can count on with this two is adventure and romance! Loved this book as I have all of the series and looking forward to more!! Sandra Sookoo has a wonderful way of making you feel part of the characters and their lives!!
