Oriel Sinclair is hanging on by her fingernails, with a sick father and an ailing business. She’s trying to make a living in her tiny shop, even if it means being nice to customers like the rich, leering Lord Frogmore. Despite her straits, she won’t take advantage of a young man’s infatuation. Especially once she meets his elder brother who is everything she ever dreamed of in a man. Trouble is she doubts Dev’s intentions are honorable and she won’t be reduced to a kept woman, by the the vile Frogmore or the delectable Dev.

The Appeal of Christmas by Grace Burrowes
The best Christmas present is the one he didn't realize he desperately needed.
She's his favorite bluestocking...
Hester Hooper loves beautiful prose and old books, but she loves barrister Gervaise Stoneleigh more. For years, she's helped Gervaise polish his legal arguments, beat him at chess, and tolerated his annual holiday grumpiness, hoping all the while that this Christmas, her friend will finally see her as more than a reliable confidante and shopping partner.
He's the best argument for loitering beneath the mistletoe...
Gervaise Stoneleigh has no time for holiday sentiment, though he tries to humor Hazel's seasonal enthusiasms--she is his oldest friend, after all. When Gervaise finds an unsigned draft of a love letter at Hazel's favorite bookshop, he's intrigued by the author's passion and eloquence. The lady who wrote that letter is bold, courageous, and lusty--not at all like his sweet, demure Hazel. And yet, when Hazel accosts Gervaise beneath the mistletoe, he's in for quite the holiday surprise!
