THE MISTLETOE WAGER
This light and entertaining romp is entrancing from start to finish. The characters are lovable, and the plot is just convoluted enough to keep readers guessing. It's the perfect book to pick up at the beginning of the holiday season for a strong dose of Christmas spirit.
Meanwhile, Harry's half-sister Rosalind is serving as his hostess during the house party. Imagine the tangle when Nicholas invites Elise to accompany him, and Rosalind realizes that Nicholas was involved in the scandal that ended in her banishment from society five years ago!
