What Lady Jenny wants for Christmas...

For Christmas, soft-spoken Lady Jenny Windham craves the freedom to pursue her artistic ambitions, though it will mean scandalizing her ducal parents and abandoning all hope of a family of her own. She confides her plans to successful artist Elijah Harrison when he's commissioned to paint a portrait of her small nephews, because assisting Elijah will bring Jenny that much closer to her heart's desire--won't it?

...Will break both their hearts

Elijah Harrison finds in his unlikely assistant not only an inspiring muse and unappreciated talent, but also a lovely and passionate woman. If Elijah supports Jenny's career, his own professional interests will suffer, but more significantly, he will lose Jenny forever. Both Jenny and Elijah must choose between true love and a lifelong dream.

Grace Burrowes brings us an entertaining and romantic story just in time for the holidays.  Her characters always tend to jump out at you and pull you into their stories.  Ms. Burrowes has become a Queen of Regency Romance in my book, she never disappoints with her knowledge of the era.

As for the characters Lady Jenny and Elijah Harrison both artist at heart even though Jenny feels she must choose between what is expected of her and what she wants to do and Elijah is trying to make something of his art to return to his family to prove his success.  Both characters have been in the previous books and now it is their turn to find love, but it is not going to be easy.

This is the final book in the Windham Series and what a way for it to end.  I look forward to seeing what Ms. Burrowes comes out with next.
