Damien Morton is madly in love. Unfortunately, it's with his best friend's widow, Lady Danver. Damien is not worthy of Celia. Or so he thinks. Desperate to escape his feelings for her, he plans to leave the country at the first of the year. Celia treats him as a family friend and nothing more—until they share a heated kiss beneath the mistletoe...

Celia is shocked by the passions that surge within her at her dear friend's kiss. One touch and one taste aren't enough to satisfy her cravings, and she is startled into action. Damien has stirred something inside her that she never expected to experience again, and she must have more. Full of shameless desire and emotions newly discovered, she decides to pursue Damien and won't be deterred. Will she be able to convince him to stay—both in her heart and life—forever?

Damien has always been in love with his best friend's wife - Celia.  Having never felt worthy enough for Celia he decides it's time to leave England and hope that he can escape the feelings and move on with his life.  Unfortunately for Damien - this isn't meant to be!

With one kiss Celia and Damien shocked by the chemistry between them.  Surrounded by family and friends they try and keep their growing passion under control.  With a young son to think about Celia is torn - is she betraying her husband's memory by falling for Damien?  What will her son think of the situation?

I'm always so surprised at how much information is packed into so few pages.  Karen Erickson did a fabulous job pulling me into the story and keeping me hooked until the last page.  I loved reading about Damien and Celia's growing love and how they learned to trust and find one another.

This was my first by this author, and I love how she tells a story.  I will be definitely picking up more by Karen and adding them to my ever growing library!
