How far would you go for love?
An escapade, a caper, an outrageous Christmas courtship…Oliver Angel will do whatever it takes to win the heart of his chosen lady. The first time he met Dinah Bishop she turned her pistol on him, but instead of his head, Dinah’s ball struck the softest part of his heart. Oliver is determined to make Dinah his own, but there’s one small problem…
Dinah Bishop doesn’t believe in love. Her Christmases haven’t been filled with sugar plums and kissing balls, and she doesn’t care for Christmas capers. But as she and Oliver embark on a wild carriage ride from London to Essex, Dinah can no longer deny her heart’s whisper. She’s in love with Oliver Angel, but can she trust herself with his precious heart?
A semi-reformed rake, a lady who’s wary of love, two mischievous horses and a skittish servant who believes in ghosts—how could such a courtship possibly go wrong? Will this mismatched pair lose their chance at love, or will they spend Christmas in each other’s arms?
Anna Bradley has been an avid reader, writer and book fondler since childhood, when she pilfered her first romance novel and stole away to her bedroom to devour it. This insatiable love of the written word persisted throughout her childhood in Maine, where it led to a master's degree in English Literature. Before she became a writer, Anna worked with a rare books library featuring works by British women writers from the 1600s through the Regency period. Here she indulged in her love of stories, fondled smooth, leather-bound volumes to her heart's content and dreamed of becoming a writer. Anna writes steamy historical romance (think garters, fops and riding crops) and squeezes in a career as a writing and literature professor on the side. She lives with her husband and two children in Portland, OR, where people are delightfully weird and love to read.
