Summary:

For the first time in her sheltered life, Larissa Ascot's wishes for a merry Christmas seem to be in peril. Her father is off to the Colonies on business, but is far overdue to be home. Thus Larissa is left to handle the rumors of her family's bankruptcy, panicked creditors pounding on her door, and eviction. On top of all that, she must now contend with her enigmatic would-be "benefactor," Vincent Everett, the Baron of Windsmoor. The charming and handsome rogue has offered to shelter Larissa, her little brother, and their few remaining servants in his home, and Larissa has no choice but to accept his proposal - unless she and her younger brother Thomas wish to wake up chin-deep in snow on Christmas morning. The baron would be the first to admit that it is more than the Yuletide spirit of good will that has inspired his generosity. From the moment he first set eyes on the enchanting Miss Ascot, he was bewitched. And now that she has taken up residence in his home as well as in his heart, he aches with wanting her - a most unfortunate state of affairs, since the proud beauty obviously despises him . . . And since Vincent had previously sworn to seek a righteous vengeance on Larissa's family. But Christmas is a time for miracles, after all, when love, at the seasonal peak of its power, can triumph over adversity. The more the lovely lady resists Vincent's considerable attractions, the hotter her desire for him grows. And in these magical days, something truly wondrous could occur - as the spirit of forgiveness reaches down to touch two rivals . . . and shower Vincent and Larissa with precious gifts of tenderness and ecstasy unbound.

    Not bad but definitely not up to what I've grown to expect from Johanna Lindsey. And the title is misleading. It lead me to believe it was a 'Christmas' tale and it isn't...other than it's set at that time of year.

    Kind of a slow moving book. Wasn't crazy about the ending, I am just not a fan of the helpless female rescued by the big strong male. And even though he treats he horribly her love allows her to forgive him. I dont know, I don't think that just "feeling really bad about what I did" is enough.

    The first couple of chapters of this audio book was difficult to follow, but it didn't take long for me to get engrossed and enjoy the storyline.

    I enjoyed this quick reading/hearing book. Once you started it, you couldn't wait to see what happened next. It shows how love conquers a multitude of sins, and that many times things are not how they seem, that more research and information should be sought, before we jump to conclusions. It was something how the love that Larissa had melted the heart of Vincent! And although he sounded a little older than her ---it really was a nice story.

    I liked the story of the book but I hated the voice of the reader for the Vincent character, it sounded more like and old man and it kind of killed it for me.The story itself I found to be entertaining but not one of my favorites.
