Add To

After being forced to dismantle his childhood home, Blair MacTierney, Earl of Brenmore, has vowed never to return to the Highlands. Yet with the passing of a distant relation, Blair is abruptly saddled with an ancient Scottish manor, a young ward, and an unconventional governess, Miss Amelia Harlow. Blair has every intention of avoiding entanglements, both with the estate he’s inherited, and with Amelia. But in a season of magic and miracles, it’s all too easy to fall in love.

That she is determined to melt...

With Blair’s plans to shutter the manor, Amelia is in danger of losing not only her position as governess, but her newfound home. To prove the estate is worth saving—and remind Blair of the cozy comforts and heartwarming joys of a Scottish Christmas—she launches a campaign of gingerbread, boughs of holly, and long evenings before the fire. But an unexpected kiss beneath the mistletoe may sweep them both up in a Yuletide romance neither had planned. Can Amelia remind Blair of the true spirit of the season, and of the Highlands, before it’s too late?

This low-heat (kisses only) Victorian historical romance is part of the Highland Christmas series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story any time of the year.


Blair MacTierney , Earl of Brenmore worked with his father to try and save his own estate in the Highlands from the necessary clearances but failed.  It devastated him to watch his people suffer. Now he has to return to the Highlands because he has been made guardian to a young heiress and her land.  He is not going to enjoy doing the same again.  
Miss Amelia Harlow loves her work.  She is governess to a bright young girl and helps the children of the crofters with a little education. This could all change very soon.  
This is a sweet historical romance with it's characters hoping for a Christmas miracle. Our hero really doesn't want to be the bad guy and our heroine will try to sweeten him up.  Maybe it's the Christmas spirit that will save the day.  
Good fun.
