Lady Louisa Windham is tired of society’s demanding seasons, and she knows that because of a secret youthful indiscretion, she will not marry. Rather than dance with likely fortune hunters, she enjoys talking with her brothers’ military friend Sir Joseph Carrington. Sir Joseph is embarrassed by his knighthood and wants only to find a wife who will be a mother to his two daughters and secret children. Her brothers ask Sir Joseph to keep an eye on Lady Louisa, then realize that they belong together, despite threatening notes and looming scandals. As Louisa and Joseph try to avoid gossip, love, and their inevitable marriage, Burrowes concocts a fun Regency Christmas romance to add to her sparkling Windham series (The Virtuoso, 2011). Humor, strong female characters, and fresh situations are hallmarks of this award-winning author, and readers will regret that there are only a few remaining Windham siblings. Fans of Amanda Quick and Loretta Chase will enjoy Burrowes. --Amy Alessio
