Everyone knows that an Effington always getsher way … but this time it’s not going to be easy!
Lady Elizabeth Effington simply could not suitably feel the joy of the Christmas season. Ten years had passed since she had boldly declared her love for Sir Nicholas Collingsworth. He rebuffed her and set out to seek his fortunes, while Elizabeth was left a woman scorned. Now, she discovers in horror that the inheritance she’s managed beautifully was never hers to control. No, power over her finances lay in the hands of the last man she ever wants to see again: Nicholas!
But running Elizabeth’s life isn’t part of Nick’s plans. He’s intrigued when he discovers that the frivolous and flighty girl he once knew has turned into a beautiful and capable woman. Nick vows to woo — and win — her, and while she seems unmoved by his fervent seduction, he swears he will not rest until she accepts that most precious gift of all — the gift of love.
Why A Visit From Sir Nicholas?
This is such a festive and Christmas feely book that as it’s a week away from Christmas, I just had to promote here!! If you are a fan of a retelling of The Christmas Carol, than this book is for you. And its probably one of my favorite books this author has written. Its part of her Effington series, which in my opinion are her most well written novels. In this book our “Scrooge” is the heroine. She struggles feeling joyful around the Christmas season, and she learns that her funds have been trusted into the man that once held her heart. But Nick, is wanted to win the lovely lady and make her believe in the spirit of Christmas. A truly heartwarming read that is a must for those Christmas romance lovers out there!!
