Adam Rutledge, Viscount d'Arque, really rather loathes Christmas. The banal cheerfulness. The asinine party games. And, worst of all, the obligatory trip to the countryside. His grandmother, however, loves the holiday - and Adam loves his grandmother, so he'll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they're forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he's ever met....
Sarah St. John really rather loathes rakes. The self-satisfied smirks. The sly predatory gazes. Oh, and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning. But in the spirit of the season, she'll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home. But as the snowstorm rages, the Yule log crackles, and the tension rises, Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery, passionate kiss. If love is the true meaning of Christmas, it's the one gift this mismatched pair can't wait to unwrap.

Elizabeth Hoyt delivers yet another of her trademark historical Maiden Lane romance. I have only vague recollections of Adam and Sarah, however, I'm glad to read about them both here on their journey to their HEA. Having loved this series a lot, I threw myself into this novella and it didn't disappoint. I had a fun time visiting with Megs and Godric, and it's the first time I actually read a scene where the brother approved of the suitor for his sister's hand, never mind that said suitor was a rake!
I enjoyed this book a lot! If you haven't read any book in the series yet, it's okay to start with this one if you're looking for something short and sweet. The writing flows and the plot was solid, but what else would you expect from Elizabeth Hoyt?
