Product Overview

From The Publisher:
Everyone knows that an Effington always gets her way... but this time it's not going to be easy! Lady Elizabeth Effington simply could not suitably feel the joy of the Christmas season. Ten years had passed since she had boldly declared her love for Sir Nicholas Collingsworth. He rebuffed her and set out to seek his fortunes, while Elizabeth was left a woman scorned. Now, she discovers in horror that the inheritance she's managed beautifully was never hers to control. No, power over her finances lay in the hands of the last man she ever wants to see again: Nicholas! But running Elizabeth's life isn't part of Nick's plans. He's intrigued when he discovers that the frivolous and flighty girl he once knew has turned into a beautiful and capable woman. Nick vows to woo -- and win -- her, and while she seems unmoved by his fervent seduction, he swears he will not rest until she accepts that most precious gift of all -- the gift of love.

About The Author:
Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two teenaged children, and a bearded collie named Sam. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it's never too soon to panic.

Annotation This Regency romance set during the Christmas season is another installment in the long-running saga of the Effington family. Ten years ago, Lady Elizabeth Effington presented Sir Nicholas Collingsworth with a carefully chosen Christmas present...and her undying love. Instead, he rejected her, advised her to accept the marriage proposal of his best friend, and went abroad in search of financial success. Now, Nicholas has returned to London, and Elizabeth is a widow who has just discovered that the inheritance to which she has devoted such attention is actually under Nicholas's control. Nicholas isn't interested in Elizabeth's money, but he is interested in reclaiming the heart he broke so many years ago....
