Vincent Everett has a heart of stone. How else could he
evict a family right before Christmas, as the ultimate act
of revenge against the man who caused his brothers death?
With her father away on business, sheltered Larissa Ascott
is forced to deal with angry creditors and now eviction.
Pangs of guilt compel Vincent to stop at the Ascotts and
in the glowing gas light Larissa looks like an angel. Vincent
invites Larissa and her brother to stay in his home. He
believes he can exact revenge by seducing Larissa and ruining
her for marriage.
But the caring Larissa falls in love with Vincent and welcomes
him into her bed. Vincent suddenly wishes she were not his
enemy’s daughter, for now he wants her not as a mistress,
but as a wife.
But what of his plan to avenge his brothers death, her fathers
possible return and the fact that his friend desires to
court Larissa? Johanna Lindsey pieces all these components
together in a charming, warm-hearted romance perfect for
the season of joy and giving.
Got a huge selection of Johanna Lindsey, Nora Roberts, Elizabeth
Lowell and many more authors.
