For three years, Lady Veronica Smithson has been perfectly happy as a widow--and thoroughly independent. Still, the right gentleman could provide the benefits of marriage without the tedious restrictions. And in Sir Sebastian Hadley-Attwater, renowned explorer and rogue, Veronica is sure she has found him.

Sebastian will come into his inheritance in a matter of weeks--if his family deems him responsible enough. There's no better way to prove his maturity than with a wife. But though Veronica will share his bed, she refuses to marry. However, Sebastian has a plan: An intimate sojourn at his new country house will surely change Veronica's mind. For Sebastian never takes no for an answer. And he intends to persuade his Christmas mistress that they belong together--in this, and every season to come. . .

Enjoyable read. I often enjoyed the turns of phrases used by the writer. "The most delightful sense of anticipation shivered through her. Oh yes, he would do." The premise was somewhat believable (for a romance) and moved along with interest. When things got physical, some of the description seemed out of place, and hearing the word "ballocks" used in this context seemed odd and a little hilarious. I thought the last few chapters not as strong as the earlier ones and wanted to know more about Aunt Lotte and see some resolution with her situation. The Christmas deadline was used well and made for a pleasant seasonal read.
