A lonely earl, a competent heroine of dubious origins, family secrets, and three mischievous boys-plus a goat on the roof, kisses in the barn, and mischief in the parlor... The Earl of Chadbourn feels trapped managing his widowed sister's ruined estate and grieving son. Loneliness overwhelms him, but the woman who handles the neighboring farm brilliantly draws him like a moth to flame. Catherine Wheatly has her own problems. With Christmas coming, can they repair the damaged estate and far more damaged family? Dare they hope for love in the bargain?
