For a bit of Christmas in August, this Regency story is set at a Christmas country house party where my main character, Jonathan Cavendish, after spending some years alone after a relationship ended badly, starts to embrace life among convivial company, especially and handsome and charming local farmer’s son called Nick…

Jonathan Cavendish is a thirty-year-old bachelor and has become quite reclusive in the years following a failed romance with the love of his life, Sebastian, who he met at university. In the years following their split, he has thrown all his energy into restoring the small estate that he inherited from a great uncle and has put aside any thoughts of romance.

 Although he’d rather remain at home alone for the festive season, this year he’s accompanying his cousin Freddy, in his early twenties, to a Christmas country house party. Freddie seems to be constantly falling in love and on this occasion, he is infatuated with a young lady called Belinda. This time, Freddy thinks his feelings are for real and is prepared to ask for her hand in marriage. Jonathan is asked by Freddy’s anxious mother, his Aunt Matilda, to accompany him to the house party to keep an eye on the situation, in case the young lady turns out to be an unsuitable choice.

Despite this inauspicious beginning, Jonathan relaxes over the course of Christmas, guides Freddy through his various romances and makes genuine friends with his hosts and their guests. He also catches the eye of Nick, the handsome son of a local well-to-do farmer, who is a constant presence at the various entertainments.

Nick is intrigued by Jonathan’s kindness and also by the sadness he hides from public view. The initial attraction seems to be mutual, but can Nick break through Jonathan’s defences and teach him to love again?
