Madeleine's Christmas Wish
The bachelors in Ella Quinn's Marriage Game series make a habit of resisting the irresistible. But during the season for giving, surrendering to temptation may be the greatest gift of all. . .
A French spy, Georges, Marquis Cruzy-le-Châtel, has lived in England for years, sacrificing his life for his country-but not his heart. For he's never been able to forget his childhood friend, Madeleine. And now, in her hour of need, he is there to rescue her. . .
The victim of a ruthless statesman, Madeleine, Comtesse du Beaune, has been abducted and sent to England to work in a brothel. Her greatest wish is to return home for Christmas, and her only hope of it is to marry Georges-though she will be his wife in name alone. Yet as they steal across the snowy countryside, Georges decides to woo her-with kisses that melt the winter's frost and leave her longing for a holiday miracle. . .
