Before an unflappable miss met her match and an unwilling lady agreed to marry a reformed rake, pretty literature teacher Eleanor Pritchett had convinced herself that romance was not for her. She'd dared to love once, a man superior to her in birth, education, and position. His family had warned her away. But when his orphaned niece begs her to carry a kitten to him for Christmas, Norrie cannot refuse, even to losing her position.
Justinian Darby, now an earl, always wondered what happened to his first love, a sweet-natured student at the nearby girls' school, who had tutored him one summer when he was home from college, ill. His father claimed she was nothing but a fortune hunter. Now she returns to his life, bearing, of all things, a kitten. Can that tiny creature, and the joy of Christmas, prove that true love never fades, and hearts once closed can be opened anew?
If you like sweet, witty Regency romances, then you'll love the prequel to Regina Scott's Uncommon Courtships series.
