This holiday romance is one I really recommend to readers looking to brighten up their day. It was sweet (but not in a sickening way), and had plenty of fun moments in it. This is why I miss snow people!

The Marquis of Wythebury, is expecting an ordinary Christmastide at Hurst—until he is set upon by a beautiful miss who takes him to task for not allowing his young nephews to play outside. In his mind, a five and seven year old needn’t get chilled in the snow; better to plop them in front of the fire with a book. Few people have ever been brave enough to challenge him over anything, much less the rearing of his wards. The cheeky Miss Prim has no such compunction. No matter how fetching he finds her, he can’t give in to his attraction…for she is the sister of his best friend.
Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about him kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play.
Seth Wythebury, the Marquis of Wythebury has been left in charge of his young nephews and plans on keeping them safe while they grow up to be proper gentlemen but when he and the boys meet Lillian Prim all bets are off. Lillian scolds Seth for not allowing the boys to be children, which of course includes letting them play outside. Caught off guard, Seth doesn't know what to make of Lillian or the attraction he feels towards her. Lillian is determined to create mischief and involve the boys in as many fun child like pursuits as possible and will even involve the stern Marquis just so that the three of them can learn how to have fun.
