Seduce Me By Christmas:
Raleigh delights with a tale of the bad boy and the lady that has the added attraction of the warmth and joy of the holiday season. With both sensuality and poignancy she charms readers as she explores a relationship that goes beyond the sensual toward the trust and love that is the basis of romance.
Summary: Notorious, illegitimate Raoul Charlebois has left London and his rakish life to search for the answers to his past. On his first day back on the family estate he nearly runs down a small boy. When he brings him home to the gamekeeper's cottage, he meets Sarah Jefferson. Exotically beautiful, yet unaware of her beauty, Sarah cares for three orphaned boys. She is more of a temptation to cynical Raoul than the women of the ton, but Sarah wants nothing to do with him. As he hunts down bits of information about his parentage, he and Sarah form a bond, and as the truth emerges and danger awaits, Sarah prays for a Christmas miracle that will bring Raoul the peace and love he needs.
