From #1 New York Times bestselling author, Victoria Alexander, comes a romantic Christmas historical--which features the happily ever after story of a fan favorite--and how one little impetuous moment can lead to the miracle of love! My friends have always considered me the most proper among us. But no one was more surprised than I, Portia, Lady Redwell, when I decided to flee the matchmaking efforts of my family to spend Christmas in an enchanting villa on the coast of Italy. My admittedly impulsive plans were immediately complicated by the presence of a certain gentleman, Mr. Fletcher Jamison, who insisted he had a claim on the villa.
