But all is not holiday cheer for everyone. Lady Caroline Ponsby, the Duke’s sister, has had her fill of being a spinster. It’s not that she hasn’t had suitors—eleven men have offered for her since she came out into society—but the only man she cares for is Christopher Perry. Unfortunately, for all his affection, he seems averse to marriage and has never proposed. Caro is convinced that he never will. She wants a home of her own, and a baby. In short, she needs a husband, and she sets her sights on Lord Brockton, a handsome rake with an impressive home and a bad reputation.
Christopher Perry has been madly in love with Caro since the day he met her, but he doesn’t believe himself worthy of a duke’s daughter. He’s immensely wealthy, but his money came from trade, and, even worse, his great-grandfather was a Jewish jeweler. How can he ask a lady like Caroline to marry so far beneath herself?
When Christopher learns that Brockton is courting Caroline, and that the notorious rake has been invited to the family’s country home for Christmas, he is devastated. When his mother and sisters abandon him to attend another sister’s delivery, Christopher decides to take up his own invitation to the country, determined to prevent Caroline from making a terrible mistake.
When the country Christmas holiday turns out to be far more eventful than anyone expected, true colors are revealed. Will there be a happy ending for Caro and Christopher? Well, this is a Christmas romance, after all.
Ex-Spinster By Christmas is a holiday treat for Regency readers, and especially for lovers of the House of Haverstock stories, who will be happy to reconnect with so many members of the extended family.
Christopher is sick to his stomach when he hears Brockton is spending Christmas with Lady Caroline even though her brother issued an invitation to him as well. He declined the invitation so as not to leave his mother alone at Christmas, but when it comes time for his sister to deliver, his mother leaves to be with her daughter. Christopher goes to Glenmont and discovers Lord Brockton has already asked Lady Caroline to be his wife.
The events that take place after Christopher's arrival shocked me. Lord Brockton as it turns out doesn't like the idea that Christopher is there especially when he finds them in an embrace, kissing.
This is an exceptionally good book. It is well thought out and didn't make me blush. Thank you, Cheryl Bolen for your work.
The last of the Dukes sisters finally finds love but it seems that he doesn't want to marry and she worries about being a spinster. 4 yrs since her come out and now she's desperate. So her plan is to be engaged by Christmas.
Wonderful romantic story, thoroughly enjoyed. Easy fast read.
