Miss Marian Wynswich is different than most of the proper young ladies in her town. She plays chess, reads Greek, and is as educated as any young man. After watching her sister go giddy when a young gentleman captures her heart, Marian vows she will never commit the feminine folly of falling in love.
As Christmas approaches, reminding Marian of her father’s death the previous year, she is determined to enjoy the season spending time with her family in their ancestral home. But her world turns upside down when she meets the dashing Lord Gilbert Ingraham on his Christmas visit. Will Marian break her vow and fall in love with a man who will likely only break her heart? Or will she stay true to herself and remain untouched and unloved?
