Re-read Season for Surrender

Read Season for Surrender (Holiday Pleasures, #2) by Theresa Romain

Alexander Edgeware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation—for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party—and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible—he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver’s protector…

I liked seeing their relationship grow, and the hero realizing the trap he’s made for himself. He betrays her trust with the best of intentions, and must truly earn her forgiveness. The ending is a clever twist that complements the story nicely.
