He jilted her sister. She will never forgive him for it. Can her anger survive a snowing in and a Christmas truce?

Emma Caldwell doesn’t hate anyone—except for Hugh Warrilow, the man who jilted her older sister and left like a coward to join the army. Men are clearly not to be trusted, and Emma is determined not to give her heart to one. No, a marriage of convenience is the very thing to suit her.

Hugh Warrilow has been secretly in love with Emma Caldwell for years, so when the time comes to live up to both families’ expectations and marry her sister, he can’t find it in himself to do it. Disgraced and misunderstood, he joins to fight Napoleon on the Continent, hoping he will forget Emma and be forgotten by everyone he has disappointed.

An injury brings Hugh home—just in time for Christmas and the snowstorm that leaves him trapped under the same roof as Emma. How will he explain that his unforgivable act was motivated by how desperately he loved her? Her icy reception doesn’t leave him the chance, nor does it offer much hope for the season’s expectation of peace on earth and goodwill to men.

    Review This story started out so sad that my heart ached for Hugh. How could everything possibly be put to rights? His intention had never been to hurt people and yet it seemed he couldn’t repair the damage done. I cried when he went to visit the widow. So sad. And that has happened to far too many people in real life. Of course the story doesn’t stay sad but for a while there…

    This is a friends to enemies to sweetheart story. The enemy part was so vehemently enemies that one might wonder that it could ever be anything else but Emma is aware of people beyond herself and changing her behavior to give someone else happiness allows her to see where she might have misjudged.

    Emma and Hugh are well matched and help build each other up as their characters grow through out the book. I liked both of them.

    The idea of being snowed in for Christmas is rather fun for a book setting. I enjoyed the book and think the story could be the basis for a Hallmark movie. Sweet, clean romance.

    No sex, language or violence
