The Effingtons return as Lady Elizabeth Effington
discovers that both the memory of Christmas past and the
reality of Christmas present can lead
to a bright Christmas future.

It's been 10 years since Nicholas Collingsworth told her it was best to forget him and marry his best friend. Now Lizzie is a widow with two sons and happy to be independent. Then she learns that Nick is in charge of her finances.

Nick doesn't want to run Lizzie's life, he just wants to be in it. But the strong-willed and highly capable Lizzie wants nothing to do with marriage. She does, however, want Nick. How he woos, pursues, blackmails and lures Lizzie into his bed is one thing, but getting her to say "I do" is another.

A Visit From Sir Nicholas is most certainly a perfect gift from Alexander. It's perhaps her best book yet, overflowing with heart-tugging scenes, simmering sexual tension, marvelous characters and meaningful lessons about life and love. Here is
a story that, like Dickens' A Christmas Carol, will make you believe that "all good things are possible at Christmas." SENSUAL (Dec., 384 pp., $6.99)
