Isabelle is devastated when situations from her past come back to haunt her before her Brother’s Christmas Ball. She knows no-one who can help her find a way out of this problem. When Lyon, Duke of Dangerfield, meets Isabelle, he is attracted to the delightful woman, but doesn’t feel that he is ready to start flirting again. Their attraction grows stronger, but can they overcome the miserable future facing Isabelle? I loved these characters. The story was so well-written, I couldn’t put it down. Well done Arietta.
