SynopsisThe best gifts come wrapped in a kilt...
Beautiful Lady Rowena Pepperwirth can have any man her heart desires. Unfortunately no gentleman has elicited even the slightest flutter—until she meets the brooding Lord Forres at a holiday house party. With just one look at the dashing Scottish lord, Rowena suddenly knows what she wants for Christmas.
Quinn MacCauley, Lord Forres, is in need of a wife. When he meets the lovely Lady Rowena, he knows she'll be a good mother to his daughter and a capable household manager. But Quinn doesn't count on Rowena being the most tempting woman he's ever met. He's determined not to risk his heart, but Rowena's just as determined to give him the greatest holiday gift of all—a chance at true love.

Kobo: http://bit.ly/2ivo6FVWe start out with Rowena running after a young child in the hopes of catching her before she falls into the fountain. I have to admit that I held my breath for a few minutes there, I know Lauren wouldn't start out a book with something so depressing but I was nervous just the same.
Quinn MacCauley is looking for a new wife to help care for his young daughter after his wife died a year earlier. This was truly a sad time for him because he never thought he would fall in love again, scratch that - he never wanted to fall in love again, what he had with his late wife was a special kind of love and she would never be replaced even though he knew he needed a woman in his life for Blair.
I enjoyed Quinn and Rowena together, there is a ten year age difference but I never felt a disconnect because of the generational gap, they had great chemistry together, and the most important thing for me was that Rowena loved Blair wholeheartedly.
This was a heartwarming read with just enough steam to heat up your kindles. A perfect holiday story.
