It's been two years since Lord Chepstow has seen the awkward, unsociable Honeysuckle Miller. Since then she has become a governess at the home of his acquaintance, Lord Budworth. An invitation from Lord Budworth to spend Christmas at his manor seems like the perfect opportunity for Lord Chepstow to reconnect with Honeysuckle. At first, the governess is delighted to hear that Lord Chepstow will be at the manor, but their first meeting proves to be horrific when he laughs at her appearance. Still, despite their horrendous encounter, she can't seem to get him out of her head. Will Honeysuckle's dreams of love come true?
