There is no other name more synonymous with romance -- there is no other talent as rich in warmth, wit, and bold sensuality than that of Johanna Lindsey, the unsurpassed Queen of historical romantic fiction. And now she shares a treasured gift of love with an enchanting winter's tale that sees two warringhearts warmed and delightfiilly joined in a season of giving.

Home For the Holidays

For the first time in her sheltered life, Larissa Ascot's wishes for amerry Christmas seem to be in peril. Her father is off to the Colonieson business, but is far overdue to be home. Thus Larissa is left tohandle the rumors of her family's bankruptcy, panicked creditorspounding on her door, and eviction. On top of all that, she must nowcontend with her enigmatic would-be "benefactor," Vincent Everett,the Baron of Windsmoor. The charming and handsome rogue has offered to shelter Larissa, her little brother, and their few remaining servants in his own home, and Larissa has no choice but to accept his proposal -- unless she and her younger brother Thomas wish to wake up chin-deep in snow on Christmas morning.

The baron would be the first to admit that it is more than theYuletide spirit of good will that has inspired his generosity From themoment he first set eyes on the enchanting Miss Ascot, he was bewitched. And now that she has taken up residence in his home as well as in his heart, he aches with wanting her -- a most unfortunate state of Airs, since the proud beauty obviously despises him...and since Vincent had previously sworn to seek a righteous vengeance on Larissa's family.

But Christmas is a time of miracles, after all, when love, at theseasonal peak of its power, can triumph over all adversity The morethe lovely lady resists Vincent's considerable attractions,the hotter her desire for him grows. And in these magical days,something truly wondrous could occur -- as the spirit of forgivenessreaches down to touch two rival souls ... and shower Vincentand Larissa with precious gifts of tenderness and ecstasy unbound.

About the Author

Johanna Lindsey is one of the world's most successful romance authors. She has written over 30 books, of which 54 million copies are in print and have been translated into 12 languages. As a young wife and mother, Lindsey became a great fan of romance novels and wrote her first book on a whim. "I started writing as a hobby. I never thought of being a writer when I was young. Now I wouldn't want to do anything else." The first book, "Captive Bride" (1977) was written when she was 25. To the young author's great surprise, it made The New York Times Bestsellers list. Lindsey had found a romance formula that worked. Take any setting past or present, introduce a rascally-rakish male and a romantic heroine, let their hearts ignite with passion, lust, and love. Lindsey has something of a cult following, following such titles as "Heart of Thunder", "Hearts Aflame", "A Heart So Wild", and ''Keeper of the Heart". She has loyal fans reading "Glorious Angel" and "Gentle Rogue" and legions of devotees buying her Malory family series. Because her father was in the U.S. Army, Lindsey traveled widely as a child. She was born in Germany and grew up in Fort Knox, Kentucky. The family settled in Hawaii and Lindsey was married right after high school to her husband Ralph, who has since passed away. She has three sons and is a grandmother.
