Robert Townley prides himself as an efficient and indispensible valet to Phillip, Duke of Bartlett. But when Robert is coerced into teaching the poor children at the duchess' chapel school, he's out of his element. Thankfully, he has assistance from some of the other servants, including the prickly Miss Brown.
Jeanne Brown is lady's maid to the Duchess of Bartlett. She loves working with the children but can't abide Robert's lofty attitude toward them. She'd love to put him in his place -- but she needs her job.
When the duchess decides to hold the school's Christmas party in her home, Robert and Jeanne must put aside their differences and work together to ensure that the holiday celebration goes off without a hitch. Will they be able to endure the partnership, or will their sparks ignite something more?

If you're looking for a book to get you into the spirit of Christmas, this is the first book you need to pick up - and if you love regencies you are in for a treat! Jeanne Brown is a loving, sweet woman who has a special way of teaching the poor children at the chapel school. The only problem is that she has to work with stiff and uppity Robert Townley, the Duke of Bartlett's valet. Though it doesn't seem like these two will be able to work together, we learn that sometimes the person you think you can't stand to be with is the very person you need most. Kiyono does an excellent job transporting the reader into the regency period. Her settings come alive with her descriptions and her characters are easily seen in the mind's eye. This is a story that I will read every holiday season.
