Celia and Jack are two of the most lovable characters I've ever come across in any Regency romance. Their love story is tender, touching, and amusing. I never wanted it to end!

The Duchess of Delacourt was ill. No one but her trusted life-long servant knew. Before Her Grace died, she was determined to see her only son, Jack, wed. She chose Celia Delacourt, a very distant and poor relation who had recently lost her entire family to sickness. The duchess planned to train and mold Celia into he idea of what her son needed. With nowhere else to go, and not knowing Her Grace's plans of her, Celia agreed to Christmas at Delacourt.

Jack, the Marquess of Lynden, went home to Delacourt for Christmas every year. Knowing his scheming mother planned to push another fortune hunter at him, he made his appearance as mismatched, rude, and LOUD as possible! Just as he convinced Celia he was mad, he also fell under her spell. The problem was Her Grace, as always.

*** Sweet irony! That does describe it well. No adventure or danger here. But I found it to be one of the sweetest and romantic stories I have read. Perfect reading on a cold day during the holiday season while sipping hot chocolate in front of the fireplace! ***
