An Unexpected Delivery
'Tis the season to be merry, but Miss Augusta Oglethorpe is anything but – thanks to her ninny of a sister who has dashed off to heaven knows where, leaving her three young children behind. Her upcoming Christmas plans now in total chaos, Augusta decides enough is enough. Children in tow, she appears at the doorstep of Richard, the Marquess of Ardath, convinced that's where she'll find her beautiful widowed sister in defiant dishabille.
A Most Precious Gift

But alas, here he is, bitter, jaded, and most decidedly alone. So where is Clarissa? As Augusta and Richard forge a tentative alliance to search for her and try to tend to her three rambunctious children, something warm and wonderful begins to happen. Is it just the Christmas spirit and the joy of beaming young faces? Or perhaps the herald of new love?
