"Jillian Eaton finds the perfect balance between intense emotions, sizzling chemistry, and light-hearted humor." - SWEPT AWAY BY ROMANCE
It’s a family tradition. Every single Appleton sister has met her husband at their parent’s annual Christmas ball. Every single sister except for Honora, that is. Determined to maintain her independence, the last thing the youngest Appleton sister wants is to be caught kissing a marquess under the mistletoe. She’s quite happy sipping warm cider and watching everyone else fall in love, thank you very much.
Then a handsome stranger arrives and suddenly the cider is no longer the hottest thing in the room. As sparks begin to fly, will Honora be the first in her family to break tradition…or follow in her sister’s footsteps and run towards the nearest mistletoe?

Honora gasped when Jasper nipped her skin through her glove. He soothed the tiny bite with his tongue then took a step back, a devilish light glinting in his eyes.
“Did you like that, Lady Honora?”
“I – I don’t know,” she said honestly as she tucked her arm behind her back. Her limb was tingling from her shoulder to her fingertips, and a ribbon of heat was slowly unfurling between her thighs.
Had she liked his kiss?
No, she hadn’t liked it.
She’d loved it.
But she hated him.
It was really quite the conundrum...
Miss Calliope Haversham has eighteen days.
Eighteen days before she turns twenty-one and becomes a spinster.
Eighteen days before her inheritance is passed on to her loathsome cousin Beatrice.
Eighteen days before she must marry a stranger… or lose everything she has.
But Calliope isn’t worried. She has a plan. One that involves a bit of luck, the help of her daring best friend, and the curmudgeonly (albeit very handsome) Earl of Winchester. All she needs to do is secure an invitation to London’s most elite ball (something which she has no hope of getting), convince the earl to dance (something he never does), and have him propose before the night is over (something he has vowed never to do).
How hard can it possibly be?
