Kleypas brings back her beloved Wallflowers in a holiday tale to make your heart sing with the joy of the season. Her lively romance and heartfelt sense of love will lift spirits and brighten the night.

Though each of the Wallflowers has found true love, their matchmaking days are far from over. Lillian and Daisy's oldest brother, Rafe Bowman, arrives in London to court his bride to be. Before they set him loose on the ton, and Lady Natalie, the ladies teach him the ways of society. Rafe is as bold and dashing as any American and not as unprepared as the Wallflowers believe, which is how he handles Hannah Appleton, Lady Natalie's companion, when she's sent to check him out. Rafe is intrigued by Hannah and sees that she's included in every event. Falling in love with the charming rogue is far too easy for Hannah. With the joy of the season, mistletoe and love, their passion blossoms. (St. Martin's, Oct., 213 pp., $16.95)
