With only three days to decide her fate, Margaret Main must make a choice: concede to the demands of her parents, or keep the vow she made to her beloved sister-in-law. The answer is simple. The solution aches her heart. For to keep her word–and her freedom–she must marry the only man she’s ever loved, with the knowledge he may never love her in return.
Holdwell Estate is his home, the place of his youth—his future. But to keep it, Marcus Wells must find a woman willing to marry him by morning. For years he was warned against giving away his heart, against the damage love would surely bring upon him.But this woman is far too lovely, far too spirited and kind. How can he keep himself from giving away the one thing he knows, once gone, will be lost forever…
This is a delightful Christmas Novella! A marriage of convenience between childhood friends brings unexpected outcome.
Margaret wasn’t looking to get married, but it seemed that was the only way to keep her promise to her sister-in-law. Marcus had spent his youth avoiding the entanglement of love. But forces outside their control have brought them together. Is it possible for two people from different walks of life to find their happily-ever-after, or will well-meaning, busybody relations drive a wedge between the tenuous relationship?
I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent reading this light-hearted Christmas story. It is sure to warm your heart. I give this charming story 4.5 stars and I look forward to reading more of Amber Lynn Perry’s stories in the future.
