From the Publisher:
In a pair of classic Regency-era Christmas romance novels from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh, the holidays herald the greatest gift of all: unexpected, all-consuming love.
A CHRISTMAS BRIDE
The very wealthy Edgar Downes has promised his aging father to finally take a bride?specifically, to wed a titled lady by Christmas. London is full of pretty, proper, and eligible misses, but it's the widow Helena, Lady Stapleton, in a shocking red dress, who captures Edgar's attention. Helena is intrigued by the seductive stranger?but he's simply not in her class. Marriage, of course, would never do. But in a season of miracles, something wondrous is about to happen.
Not even the warm, forgiving Christmas spirit can stop the Marquess of Denbigh from settling his score with Judith Easton: The beautiful young widow injured Denbigh's pride years ago by jilting him for another man. Now that Judith is free from a nightmare marriage, the handsome marquess has her in his sights?and wants her in his arms. But to trust the tender words on his lips, Judith must not only see past the hardness of his heart, but learn once again to trust her own heart's desire.
Mary Balogh is the author of numerous best-selling historical romances and is most widely known for her Regency romances, which deal with such themes as betrayal, marriage, and true love. After studying in Wales, Balogh decided she wanted to travel and to find work as a teacher, a profession much in demand in the late '60s. After applying to nine different countries around the world, she ended up in Saskatchewan, Canada. Having accepted a two-year contract to teach English, Balogh met her husband, a farmer, and settled down in Canada. It was there, in 1983, that she first picked up a pen and began to write romances. But when her first few attempts were rejected, Balogh adjusted her style and tried to write a Regency, immediately falling in love with the genre. With this decision, her career as a popular romance writer began.
