Well, the best of good intentions etc. etc! Crispin is in the midst of helping a young child of the female persuasion who's fallen out of a tree whilst cutting down Christmas decorations, when he's battered over the head with a basket of mistletoe by her sister thinking the worst!Miss Gwen Prim is unaware that it's a Duke she's raging against--not only that, one well known to her brother-in-law Bray.
Crispin is quite an interesting character who displays just the right amount of acceptance of children and their ways and a wry sense of the absurd.
Gwen is a mixture of innocence and determination that does step beyond what's appropriate for her own reasons.
Between the two of them the sparks fly and Crispin finds his contemplations take a whole new direction.
An enjoyable Seasonal novella.
