A Rake's Mistake . . .
Mary Marlowe's bloodline is noble, her manners impeccable, but alas, her fortune is gone. Still, she prefers to chaperone Belinda Ramsbottom -- a merchant's pretty ninny of a daughter – through the social pitfalls of the ton rather than make a marriage of convenience. Then dashing Peveril Standish, Viscount Lindford, sets his cap for Mary's flighty charge. Peveril is wild, willful, handsome, charming, and, oh merciful heavens, the man of Mary's dreams!
A Lady's Correction . . .
Now Belinda is using all her wiles to entrap Peveril in a scandalous elopement. Worse, she wants Mary to aid and abet her. Then fate – and a mischievous holiday spirit – intervenes. Amid the snow and sleigh bells, a scheme goes topsy-turvy, Mary's reputation faces ruin, and a rakish suitor may receive the best Christmas surprise of all: the wrong bride, but the right woman to change his ways and win his heart.
