This is a sexy little romance about a young woman trying to save her younger sisters virtue, even if it puts her virtue at risk. Philippa Sanders sneaks in Earl Erskine’s bedroom to steal back a compromising letter her younger sister sent to him. Philippa has been watching the sexy rake for several days mastering his schedule.
Fate however has different plans. Erskine returns to his room unexpectedly, to find Philippa in his dressing closet and decides to tease her a bit. Teasing turns to passion as the pair discover they are locked in the room and give into their attraction as they wait out the long night until Erskine’s valet returns.
However it’s not his valet that discovers them but her mother! Now a forced marriage is on the horizon unless a scheming sister has her way. I loved the romance in this story. The characters were very well written and the shortness of the story did not effect the romance or my connection to the characters. A nice little romance for the holidays.
