ALL SHE WANTS IS PEACE AND ANONYMITY...

Lady Sophie Windham has maneuvered a few days to herself at the ducal mansion in London before she must join her family for Christmas in Kent. Suddenly trapped by a London snowstorm, she finds herself with an abandoned baby and only the assistance of a kind, handsome stranger standing between her and complete disaster.

BUT SOPHIE'S HOLIDAY IS ABOUT TO HEAT UP...

With his estate in ruins, Vim Charpentier sees little to feel festive about this Christmas. His growing attraction for Sophie Windham is the only thing that warms his spirits--but when Sophie's brothers whisk her away, Vim's most painful holiday memories are reawakened.

It seems Sophie's been keeping secrets, and now it will take much more than a mistletoe kiss to make her deepest wishes come true...

Attractive man holding baby proves irresistible.

My Thoughts on Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish

I started Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish late in the evening, which was most definitely my mistake, because no matter how much I told myself to put it down, I kept reading. Until it was finished.

This is how you accidentally finish books.

Sometimes you just need to FORGET yourself in a book, and Lady Sophie’s Christmas Wish let me do that. Despite having a silly reason why Sophie couldn’t be with Vim (because he never said he loved her — no other reason), man. Those two together were so, so sweet.

And I liked the way Kit brought Sophie and Vim together. A man who knows how to take care of a baby is practically irresistible, and Vim takes charge to show Sophie how it’s done. Having read this series out of order and being able to see Sophie, Vim, and Kit post-HEA made my time spent with them that much better.

The brothers had a bigger presence in this book than in previous Duke’s Daughters books, and I liked it. Sibling relationships can be so much FUN to read because of the history and good-natured ribbing that occurs.

I’ll admit. Vim and Sophie both had certain hangups that made me want to shake them, but overall, any book that has me staying up past my bedtime is a good. I’ve enjoyed spending time with the Windham family, and Grace Burrowes is an author I’d like to read more of.

    Grace Burrowes is the only historical author that I need to try soon. I also adore Christmas-themed romance so I’m moving this high on my wishlist. Love that it seems like the hero knows how to handle a baby!
