Lady Sophie Windham has maneuvered a few days to herself at the ducal mansion in London before she must join her family for Christmas in Kent. Suddenly trapped in Town by a snowstorm, she finds herself with an abandoned baby and only the assistance of a kind, handsome stranger standing between her and complete disaster.
With his estate in chaos, Vim Charpentier expected complications this holiday season, but he couldn’t have predicted that Sophie Windham would be among them. His growing attraction for Sophie is the only thing that warms his spirits. But Sophie’s been keeping secrets, and it will take more than a kiss under the mistletoe to make her wishes come true.

LADY SOPHIE’S CHRISTMAS WISH continues The Windhams family saga with an entertaining Christmas Romance between two unlikely people who find themselves slowly falling for each other as they tend to an adorable baby and weather an unexpected winter storm trapping them in place.
Vim has not returned home for years, an unresolved issue has kept him traveling, wandering really until it became necessary to return. The last thing he expected was to tend to a baby as though it came quite naturally to him, or to be falling in love with a lady who would be perfect for him if she would only stop saying “no” to his heartfelt proposals. Yes, multiple proposals.
Sophie has longed for a family of her own but finds herself completely at a loss as to caring for the baby now in her care. She’s managed to get some time to herself to deal with her own issues but one little baby must come first. Luckily Vim steps in to help and to confuse as she is convinced he’s proposed not out of love but because of society’s rules. One misunderstanding leads to assumptions that needed to be cleared up fast.
I enjoyed LADY SOPHIE’S CHRISTMAS WISH. I had read this one when it was first released in 2011, so this was definitely a re-read for me. It’s not my favorite story in The Windhams series, but it’s a touching romance with laughter, tears, misunderstandings, and two people finally coming to their senses about each other.
