Historical Romance

Oliver Townsende needed to escape. A marriage-minded miss was on the prowl, and Oliver had no intention of being caught. As the unexpected new Duke of Markingham, he might have certain obligations, but being forced to marry the likes of Lady Selina would be enough to renounce it. Finding the silver closet had been a stroke of luck.

Cerian Blake had considered the silver closet to be the perfect hiding place, up until she was joined by another. Cerian had her own set of unwanted admirers she was avoiding. Thus the idea of pretending an affection with Oliver was the perfect plan.

Perfect at least until their pretense of affection was no longer pretend.

It Happened Under the Mistletoe was a fun romance certain to please. Cerian and Oliver are both so desperately trying to evade their pursuers that they fail to realize that they are starting to have feelings for one another.

Included in Christmas Brides are: One Hot Scot by Suzanne Enoch, Once Upon a Highland Scandal by Alexandra Hawkins, The Scandal Before Christmas by Elizabeth Essex, and It Happened Under the Mistletoe by Valerie Bowman
