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.

Jenny Windham’s siblings have conspired to ask her and portrait artist Elijah Harrison to retrieve a forgotten gift from an empty manor house. Elijah and Jenny have had lapses before, despite the fact that they’re headed in separate directions… All Jenny wants for Christmas is one more moment with Elijah…
“Will you make love with me, Elijah? You’re leaving tomorrow, I know that, and I shouldn’t ask it. I shouldn’t want it, but I do. I want you, so much. Please?”
Not touching Elijah Harrison over the past days had been the hardest thing Jenny had asked of herself, ever. Harder even, than watching her siblings find true love, one by one.
