Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Laurens returns to romantic Scotland to usher in a new generation of Cynsters in an enchanting tale of mistletoe, magic, and love.
It's December 1837, and the young adults of the Cynster clan have succeeded in having the family Christmas celebration held at snowbound Casphairn Manor, Richard and Catriona Cynster's home. Led by Sebastian, Marquess of Earith, and by Lucilla, future Lady of the Vale, and her twin brother, Marcus, the upcoming generation has its own plans for the holiday season.
Yet where Cynsters gather, love is never far behind. The festive occasion brings together Daniel Crosbie, tutor to Lucifer Cynster's sons, and Claire Meadows, widow and governess to Gabriel Cynster's daughter. Daniel and Claire have met before, and the embers of an unexpected passions molder between them, but Claire - once bitten, twice shy - believes a second marriage is not in her stars. Daniel, however, is determined to press his suit.
Meanwhile, out riding on Christmas Eve, the young adults of the Cynster clan respond to a plea for help. Summoned to a humble dwelling in ruggedly forested mountains, Lucilla is called on to help with the difficult birth of a child, while the others rise to the challenge of helping her. With a violent storm closing in and severely limited options, the next generation of Cynsters face their first collective test - can they save this mother and child - and themselves, too?
Back at the manor, Claire is increasingly drawn to Daniel, and, despite her misgivings, against the backdrop of the ongoing festivities their relationship deepens. Yet she remains torn - until catastrophe strikes, and by winter's light she learns that love - true love - is worth any risk, any price.

Slow start but good setup for next book.

Slow start but good setup for next book. didn't need all the children to be explained at the beginning. but once the story really got started it was good. I have started the next book and this one was a good setup for the next one.
