What's a Duke to do when he's made an awful impression on the love of his life?
The Duke of Oxthorpe lost his intensely guarded heart to Miss Edith Clay when Edith’s rich cousin sought to attach the duke’s marital interest. So smitten is Oxthorpe with the former poor relation that he’s gone through intermediaries to sell Edith a property adjoining the ducal seat.
Edith doesn’t much care for the haughty duke, but as Christmas approaches, Oxthorpe reveals himself to be reserved rather than arrogant, considerate, and—blame the mistletoe!—an accomplished kisser. Will Edith hold Oxthorpe’s earlier behavior against him, or will she learn that the best holiday gifts can be the most unexpected?

A woman disgraced by a lie. A beast of a man with a cold heart. Their love will transcend continents.
Sabine Goddard is a young woman of high standing raised by her Oxford Don uncle. When a lie destroys her reputation, she and her elderly uncle travel to Turkey to escape the gossip. In Constantinople, she meets Edward, Marquess of Foye, a man hurt by the lie that forced her to leave London.
Foye fascinates Sabine. He's outsized and refers to himself as a beast, but he doesn't care that she's better educated than many men. His belief in her innocence intrigues her and earns her admiration. Sabine captivates Foye and the far-from-handsome man can scarcely believe she returns his feelings.
When Sabine and her uncle fall into the hands of a Turkish Pasha, Foye will do anything to secure the safety of the woman he loves.
