The "fallen" ladies of Puddledon Manor's Benevolent Home are determined to rise above scandal—and forge a sparkling new future operating their own brewery and alehouse . . .

With Christmas around the corner, Miss Caroline Anderson hoped to persuade a London tavern owner to carry the Home's Widow's Brew—only to discover the dastard was more interested in her ankles than her ale! To her further annoyance, her stagecoach back to Little Puddledon is waylaid by louts and a snow-covered ditch. Amid a nasty storm, Caro seeks shelter at a nearby estate—only to be greeted by Viscount Oakland, aka Nick, her brother's childhood friend—and her schoolgirl crush. Now he's the half-dressed host of what is clearly a holiday bacchanal. Still, his house is irresistibly warm . . .

Ever the free spirit, Nick has invited the wilder gentleman of the ton, and an assortment of London's lightskirts, to celebrate Christmas in a more traditional, pagan fashion. So he's surprised to find Caro at his door. Now, with a blizzard raging, he must take her in—despite his fear she won't take to his guests, and worse, upend his party. But she may surprise him—and upend his life . . .
