A Winter Scandal (Paperback)
|Author: Candace Camp|
|"New York Times "bestselling author Candace Camp weaves a heartwarming tale, first in a thrilling new series, of Christmastime love, discovery, and scandal. . . . |
When plain and proper Thea Bainbridge stumbles upon a baby in the manger of her church''s nativity, she is understandably shocked. Discovering a brooch bearing the insignia of Gabriel, Lord Morecombe, hidden among the child''s clothing, she is certain the dissolute rake is to blame. Incensed, Thea sets out to reproach the arrogant lord--only to find herself utterly swept away.
Gabriel is intrigued by the vivacity in Thea''s flashing gray eyes when she accuses him of fathering the orphan, even as he adamantly maintains his innocence. The brooch is one he remembers all too well, however, and Gabriel is determined to find the mother of the missing child. As the mystery around the baby deepens, Gabriel is continually thrown together with Thea--and finds himself growing more entranced every day.
Even with whispers of winter scandal swirling around them, they cannot deny the longing in their hearts. A longing which promises the best gift of all: a shelter from the storm . . . in each other''s arms.
