Mistletoe, Mischief, And The Marquis (The Heirs´ Club of Scoundrels) by Amelia Grey.

Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis
 (SMP Swerve; November 29, 2016; Ebook; $1.99; 978-1-250-14117-0.)

The Marquis of Wythebury, is expecting an ordinary Christmastide at Hurst—until he is set upon by a beautiful miss who takes him to task for not allowing his young nephews to play outside. In his mind, a five and seven year old needn’t get chilled in the snow; better to plop them in front of the fire with a book. Few people have ever been brave enough to challenge him over anything, much less the rearing of his wards. The cheeky Miss Prim has no such compunction. No matter how fetching he finds her, he can’t give in to his attraction…for she is the sister of his best friend.
Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about her kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play…


Seth Wythebury,  the Marquis of Wythebury is on his way to a Yule tide celebration with his two orphaned nephews.  It's time the boys had something nice to remember for this time of year,  and he can enjoy time with his friends.
Miss Lillian Prim is one of five sisters, and is fun loving and mischievous.  When she spots the two very serious little boys, she just has to make sure they have fun.
Our two protagonists are just about as opposite in personality you could find.  The attraction between them will not be denied , but it can never be more because she is a very respectable lady that he will not compromise.  He is far to stern and over protective of the boys for her to be able to accept.
A lovely sweet historical romance.  Just right for the Christmas season.  Fun and romance us just what we get in this book.  It is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone.  I loved it.
