Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "During a rare white Christmas at Brambledean Court, the widow Elizabeth, Lady Overfield, defies convention by falling in love with a younger man in the latest novel in the Westcott series. After her husband's passing, Elizabeth Overfield decides that she must enter into another suitable marriage. That, however, is the last thing on her mind when she meets Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges, at the Westcott Christmas house party. She simply enjoys his company as they listen to carolers on Christmas Eve, walk home from church together on Christmas morning, and engage in a spirited snowball fight in the afternoon. Both are surprised when their sled topples them into a snowbank and they end up sharing an unexpected kiss. They know there is no question of any relationship between them, for she is nine years older than he. They return to London the following Season, both committed to finding other, more suitable matches. Still they agree to share one waltz at each ball they attend. This innocuous agreement proves to be one that will topple their worlds, as each dance steadily ensnares them in a romance that forces the two to question what they are willing to sacrifice for love."-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Inspired by the warmth of a Westcott family Christmas at Brambledean Court, Colin Handrich, Baron Hodges, decides he is ready to find a wife of his own. As one of England's most eligible bachelors, Colin knows he will have his pick of the current crop of eligible misses, but the one woman with whom he truly feels a romantic connection is Elizabeth Overfield. After the death of her abusive and alcoholic husband, Elizabeth is just beginning to contemplate the idea of marriage again. One kiss with Colin and Elizabeth realizes just how easy it would be to fall for him. Their age difference, however, means society would never approve of the match. Logically, both Elizabeth and Colin know they need to seek more suitable spouses, but might love actually triumph over reason? The sheer perfection of Balogh's prose in the fifth superbly written installment (following Someone to Care?, 2018) in the Westcott series marries her rare gift for crafting realistically nuanced characters to produce another radiant Regency historical romance by one of the genre's most resplendent writers.
