Publisher's Summary

When a Puritan miss discovers the joys of Christmas, love's as near as the mistletoe.
The Davenport sisters were alone, without even a dour-faced maid to supervise their strict puritanical devotions, until the elder, flame-haired Gillian boldly decided it was high time they let their hair down. Now, with the help of a kindly relation, the two daring misses exchange their somber attire for modish gowns and hairstyles that would surely give their parents apoplexy.
But the best is yet to come: plum pudding, eggnog, carols, and a most breathtaking tree. The Davenport sisters revel in the rituals of Christmas - and in the selection of handsome gentlemen who decorate the festivities.
But when Gillian is caught under the mistletoe by Lord Ranger Marden, she discovers things her mother never dreamed of telling her.

This was an enchanting story much like a fairytale. Christmas magic for two lovely young ladies whose freshness, sweetness and kindness make them entirely worthy of love.

I wish I could visit Greenbanks and enjoy Mrs. Harrington's hospitality. I can hear the dogs snoring by the fire right now!

I like the occasional christmas novel but thought this was boring. Two extremely sheltered and abused girls travel to stay with a family friend for christmas, but encounter two 30 year old dudes who are attracted to their naive beauty.

I was bored. Didn't care for the heroes, the story, or the setting.
