Caroline Dunham’s younger sister is pregnant, and has revealed that Adam Prescott is the father. Caroline, hoping to force Adam to own up to his responsibility, has kidnapped him. Though Adam keeps assuring Caroline that she’s mistaken, she won’t be swayed. Her abduction skills, however, leave something to be desired, and Adam shows that he can easily escape. He chooses to stay, and to Caroline’s surprise, helps her. This man seems nothing like the kind of man who would seduce and abandon a young lady. How can Caroline possibly be falling for him herself? What if her selfish younger sister is not telling the truth? A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION is a sweet story of a misguided lady trying to do the right thing for her family, and a charming (formerly rakish) man who finds love in a most unusual way.
A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries
Cassandra Isles was deceived by a fortune hunter before, and she’s determined to never fall into that trap again. She now keeps the fact that she’s an heiress secret, and vows to only marry a man who loves her for herself. When she meets Colonel Lord Heywood Wolfe, they share an instant rapport and attraction. Heywood is a good friend of Cassandra’s cousin, and he became entranced with her through the letters she wrote to her cousin, which he shared as they both served as soldiers. Heywood is anxious to leave the life of a soldier behind and restore the home and property he’s inherited. The problem is, he has only the property, but no funds. He needs to find an heiress, though his heart wants Cassandra. This star-crossed couple seems destined to be at cross purposes, though, in truth, they are exactly what the other needs. A PERFECT MATCH is waiting for them if they can just overcome their little deceptions.
ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney
Lady Diana Lawrence is returning home to England after a seven year absence, in which she traveled and became a successful businesswoman. In all those years, she never met a man who could measure up to Anthony Raines, her first love. Anthony is now Duke of Castleton, and is sometimes known as The Disappearing Duke, because of his avoidance of social events and marriage minded ladies. He, too, has never found a love to surpass the one he shared with Diana while he was only nineteen. He’s persuaded to attend a masquerade, which he finds very freeing, as his identity is kept secret. He shares a dance with a lady, who, much to his shock, turns out to be Diana, when they unmask. His still strong feelings shake him, and he’s unsure how to respond. Anthony decides to pursue a new relationship with Diana, but first he must learn why she refused his proposal and left the country all those years ago. Though Diana still feels the magical attraction to Anthony, she has secrets that she doesn’t want to share with him. Will Anthony and Diana be able to grab the new beginning fate has offered them? Perhaps with the help of a cat named Panda? ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT is a poignant second chance at love story, and is my favorite of the collection. ~Rose
