A love that cannot be bought or sold proves to be the greatest gift of all, in this heartwarming classic that demonstrates once again why New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh is among the most celebrated authors of historical romance.

Weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions—especially when a couple seems as well matched as Randolph Pierce, Earl of Falloden, and his bride-to-be, Eleanor Transome. Ellie brings to the marriage a vast dowry, while Falloden, though distant, is handsome, tremendously desirable, and possessed of a title most young ladies can only dream of sharing.

Yet Ellie is not most young ladies. She knows that she must honor her dear father’s dying wish for her to wed the proud earl, but she dreads a lifetime in a union without love—and how can Falloden claim to love her when he married her only for her fortune? As Christmas descends upon the Falloden manor, the warmth of the season may yet melt away the trappings of duty and wealth, leaving behind only a man and a woman destined for each other’s arms.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Escape.

As usual, Ms. Balogh managed to get my emotional buy-in - there were actual tears. Twice. I didn't like Eleanor all the time - she jumped to conclusions and wouldn't TALK to Randolph. Fortunately, Randolph was prepared to compromise - in fact, he was the one who initiated detente almost the whole time. But, other than my occasional annoyance with Ellie, I really enjoyed the book. It's nice to see it back in print!more
Love this Christmas Love Story, just finished it again, I think I will read it every year. Leaves me with a warm fuzzy feeling and looking forward to Christmas with all my family.more
Excellent story with well-developed characters. Lots of narrative but still interesting; you really understood the thoughts and feelings of both the hero and heroine. A keeper.more
