Summary

Lauren Wade is desperate; her work visa in Holland is about to expire. She decides to start a race against the clock in the middle of the holiday season; to get a job that will allow her to stay in Amsterdam. She’s determined to get what she wants no matter what. So when a not so innocent old lady offers her a job in exchange for getting her stubborn grandson to go to a family party, Lauren doesn’t hesitate to take it. The real challenge starts when she meets Caleb Bescott and she realizes that he’s not only an attractive man but also an incredibly tough enemy if he finds out he’s been manipulated or mocked. 
 
Caleb Bescott truly enjoys his success in New York but what he enjoys the most is sharing it with his family. Unfortunately, he lives very far from his favorite person: his grandmother, Sylvinna. His grandmother always finds a way for him to reorganize his entire schedule just to visit her in Holland, and that’s why this time he decides to take his work team from New York to Amsterdam and spend Christmas with his loved ones. However, the last thing Caleb wants to do is go to the traditional family party knowing that Sylvinna is trying to set him up with her best friend’s daughter. He only has a few days before going back to New York and he wants to enjoy them without that pressure. Casual relationships are always entertaining but when the clever and chatty Lauren Wade enters his life, he believes he’s found something different and special. At least that’s what he thinks until he finds out she’s nothing more than an opportunist.

    The Viscount Frome is in love, and intends to marry Claribel Stamford, belle of the Social Set, as quickly as possible. She is young, beautiful, charming and rich ? in fact he considers her the perfect match. The only drawback is that he needs the permission of his uncle, the Duke of Alverstrode before he can propose.
    The Duke, a more cautious man experienced in the wiles of aspirational young women, suggests a visit to Claribel?s home to meet her doting father Sir Jarvis, the well known race-horse owner. That way, the Duke can get to know Claribel and her father and set his mind at rest before welcoming her into his illustrious family.
    Impressed by Stamford Towers, but eager to escape the heady charm offensive of Claribel and her father, the Duke cannot shake the instinct that something is not right and remains on his guard.
    Even so, he is shocked to discover a sad young woman, Giona, alone watching the sunset over the magnificent gardens. He is astonished to discover that she is the niece of Sir Jarvis, but lives hidden away like a ?skeleton in the closet?.
    Horrified by her story of mistreatment, and intrigued by the mystery that surrounds her, the Duke offers Giona his protection and vows to uncover the family secret and restore her fortunes.
    But Sir Jarvis is just as committed to keeping his family secrets buried forever and will stop at nothing to keep his reputation intact. 
    Two determined men, both used to getting their own way, but this time only one of them can win.
