Running...into the arms of the enemy.
Miss Amelia Fortescue, the only child of profligate gambler, Baron Fortescue, wants to marry for love, but her parents won't wait for that. She's bait to land a wealthy son-in-law to pay off their debts.
Wealthy banker and injured soldier, Major Adam Wellworth, falls in love with Amelia from afar. He invites the Fortescues to his estate for the Christmas week, so Amelia can get to know him. However, his plan goes horribly awry before they arrive, when Amelia's parents tell her she'll be married on Christmas Day.
Amelia's not going to be forced to marry anyone, especially someone she's never met. Instead, helped by a gallant gentleman, she becomes the Runaway Christmas Bride.
What happens afterwards, only a Christmas miracle could fix.
