This story is a second chance love story. Five years ago Miss Merry Parks was betrothed to Alex Ponsonby, the Viscount Wrotham but because of some manipulating by Alex's grandmother, the Dowager Viscountess Wrotham, Merry called it off and left Alex. Now, Merry has promised her friend Charlotte Smithson, on her deathbed, that she would take care of her daughter Lottie and find the baby's father. Charlotte was secretly married to William Ponsonby, cousin of Alex. Merry had heard that Alex was back in London and decides to go see him and ask for help in finding William.
One look at Merry and it is obvious that Alex is still in love with her and he decides right there and then that he is going to win her heart again and what a better time to do that then during Christmas.
It was a sweet and fun story seeing these two get to their happy ending. Five years of time didn't dim their feelings at all. I enjoyed the time that was spent at the Keep, the Wrotham family home, during the Christmas season. It was fun seeing how they spent their holidays and the ending of it was just perfect. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
