Summary
A love that cannot be bought or sold proves to be the greatest gift of all, in this heartwarming classic that demonstrates once again why "New York Times" bestselling author Mary Balogh is among the most celebrated authors of historical romance. Weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions especially when a couple seems as well matched as Randolph Pierce, Earl of Falloden, and his bride-to-be, Eleanor Transome. Ellie brings to the marriage a vast dowry, while Falloden, though distant, is handsome, tremendously desirable, and possessed of a title most young ladies can only dream of sharing. Yet Ellie is not most young ladies. She knows that she must honor her dear father s dying wish for her to wed the proud earl, but she dreads a lifetime in a union without love and how can Falloden claim to love her when he married her only for her fortune? As Christmas descends upon the Falloden manor, the warmth of the season may yet melt away the trappings of duty and wealth, leaving behind only a man and a woman destined for each other's arms
Summary
Although her father is determined that she marry a nobleman, Eleanor Transome, who thinks she loves the humble Mr. Wilfred, is forced instead to become betrothed to Lord Randolph Falloden, a man on the brink of ruin
