Foiling a dastardly kidnapping plot against her, Holy Kimbel left her cousin for dead and fled to London. There upon the docks, she was accosted by a band of ruffians -- only to be swept up in the arms of a dashing young earl and taken to safety. With the gorgeous Holly in his arms, John, the earl of Upton, felt feelings stir that he thought had died with his wife three years ago on Christmas Day. Quite smitten with his rescued charge, he offered Holly a job as a nanny for his children at his country manor. As the holidays approached, Holly was mortified at John's indifference to his children -- and to her. But then she learned that John was struggling under the burden of financial difficulties, and took it upon herself to bring the spirit of Christmas back to the family. When John saw how much Holly cared for his children, he could no longer keep his desire in check. But could one night of Yuletide passion be strong enough to erase the memories of Christmas past?
