For Christmas, Camille, Lady Lydingham wants a marriage proposal from her handsome prince, though securing his offer will mean keeping her unconventional relatives from the prince's notice.

Though Alexander appoints himself her protector in the most proper sense of the word, Louisa Oliver has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few daring holiday adventures first.
