This is the first book of Ms. Moore's I've read and I enjoyed it. It was a historical, sweet and spicy romance with a hero to save the day.
Charles is so alone. He has no reason to celebrate, so on Christmas Eve, he is alone, doing normal everyday things. All the while, Charles is dreaming of someone who will stay with him and love him. His housekeeper and groom want him to settle down with a woman and get married but Charles is finding his tastes lie elsewhere. As he doses off in front of the fire, a noise at his door wakes him. He braves the cold to open the door where he finds a dark haired, dark eyed man of his dreams completely soaked to the bone. Has someone answered his prayers?
