Book Summary:

The Christmas season has always been important to Nash Sinclair. Home from the war and surrounded by his large, loving family, he realizes what is missing from his life: a wife. Not too surprisingly, he is looking at his sister-in-law’s rather becoming (and unmarried) sister when he makes the decision. 

Lady Julianna intends to remain unmarried, having no need for a husband to live the life of her dreams. Rather than explain her unusual choice, she insists only a man who slays dragons would suit her, and since dragons don’t exist, neither does her ideal beau. 

Not one to turn away from a challenge, Nash enlists the aid of his nieces and nephews in a scheme sure to win Lady Julianna’s affection. But as he comes to know the lady better, he realizes he’s risking his own heart. When did his silly idea become a crucial quest?

This novella was a cute, quick read. While this was a quick read, it still felt like a whole story.  I really liked the characters of Nash and Julianna. I thought their relationship was developed well. One thing I didn’t like about the book was a reference to mistresses with an attitude that having a mistress before marriage was okay. Other than that, it was a good read. 
Rating: 3.5 – Good Book
Content: clean – a swear word, brief mention of mistresses as a norm
