December 1818. The ninth Earl of Xavier and his cousin were going about their day at Whites when the subject of a wager came about. Xavier's annual house party was coming up and it, as usual, was a party most of polite society dismissed. Lord Lockwood, Xavier's cousin, posed the following wager. He wanted Xavier to get a respectable girl to attend the house party and stay for the entire two weeks. The winner would receive Ten pounds. Xavier never doubted his ability but the lady chosen was Louisa Oliver. One of the most sought after girls of society.
Louisa Oliver had her own agenda she was working on. She wanted excitement, fun and she wanted to be kissed. Her list of things to accomplish at the house party began to get checked off rapidly. Louisa was sure this was one Christmas house party she wouldn't soon forget.
Theresa Romain gave us a different way to enjoy Christmas. It's a book full of scintillating conversations and characters you might find at any Christmas party. I love these story lines. It shows a strong woman but she's still feminine. This is the perfect book to take a break with after Christmas shopping or baking. Will put you in the spirit right away!
I found no issues with this one.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because of the surprises inside.
