Travel through the rolling hills of Scotland in this winter-themed love story from the bestselling author of the Oxenburg Princes series.

In the snowy Scottish countryside, New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins’s rakish duke has an unforgettable holiday encounter in this delightful Regency novella. When the alluring lady he surprises under the mistletoe is not who he expected—but a long-lost love with a score to settle—it’s clear that this will be a Christmas he won’t soon forget!


Marcus Sutherland,  the Duke of Rothsay comes face to face with his first love at a Christmas party.  She is as beautiful as ever,  but she hurt him badly when she married another. 
Widowed , Lady Kenna Montrose is trying to avoid the host of the Christmas party.  Her father has been pushing her to marry the man,  but he is only after her money.  There is only one man she wants,  and he deserted her years ago. 
This is a companion story to The Oxenberg Princes series but read as a stand alone.  A short but very romantic second chance at love.  Even marooned in a snow storm the two let the past play too big a part in the present.  A very enjoyable read. 



New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Karen Hawkins is known for her wonderfully humorous and emotion-tugging historical and contemporary romances. The author of over 30 novels, Karen writes for a living between shopping for shoes, playing around on Facebook and Pinterest, looking for fun items for Hawkins Manor, and napping, although usually not at the same time. Sometimes, for fun, she takes Instagram pictures of her two rescue dogs, Sadie and Teke, and posts them online.

Yeah, she's a wild one.

Karen lives in balmy Orlando, Florida, with her husband, aka Hot Cop, and her two dogs. Her children are both out of college and have become productive, non-violent members of society. Karen writes six to eight hours a day when not obsessively reading research books on Regency-era Scotland, snacking on chocolate, or looking out the windows of her house and thinking about gardening. Her hobbies include sculpting, oil painting, playing badminton, and -- ok, ok, she doesn't have any hobbies, but if she did, she's sure they'd be something refined and fascinating.

If you want to follow Karen on any of the various social media outlets that allow her to engage in 'productive procrastination,' you can find her at:
