Adam Rutledge, Viscount d'Arque, really rather loathes Christmas. The banal cheerfulness. The asinine party games. And, worst of all, the obligatory trip to the countryside. His grandmother, however, loves the holiday - and Adam loves his grandmother, so he'll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they're forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he's ever met....
Sarah St. John really rather loathes rakes. The self-satisfied smirks. The sly predatory gazes. Oh, and the constant witty banter rife with double meaning. But in the spirit of the season, she'll welcome this admittedly handsome viscount into her home. But as the snowstorm rages, the Yule log crackles, and the tension rises, Sarah and Adam find themselves locked in a fiery, passionate kiss. If love is the true meaning of Christmas, it's the one gift this mismatched pair can't wait to unwrap.

Terrible novella but great narration..
I liked the other novellas much better than this one. This one was centered mostly around sex and that just doesn’t do it for me.
I liked D’Arque and Sarah but theirs was a story that was all about sex. I’ve read 15 of EH’s books and novellas and her sex scenes get worse and worse. She used to right romantic sex but anymore she tries to make it a little too dirty for me. I think I might be done with her.
There were two sex scenes, with only one in a bed. And the F-bomb was used 1 time.
I know a lot of you are all about sex but I need something more in my romance novels and novellas. The best part of this was the very end when he proposed to her.
As to the narration: Ashford McNab is a great narrator, her male voices and her emotions BUT even she couldn’t help this novella.

A good story,
It is a good short story. However I did find some of the direct to the point descriptions a little vulgar and somewhat distracting from the story as a whole. Some of the dialect of the characters was a little nasally but there's no fault of the reader just is what it is. And I believe it was also part of the description of the character in general.
