Lady Patrina Tidemore had always prided herself on being the most logical and reasonable of the four Tidemore sisters. Nor was she the great beauty that Prudence had grown into.

She would have been wed, tucked away in a modest home, with the quiet companionship of the gentleman who loved her. Her lips twisted in an acrimonious smile. Alas, there was to be no modest home or quiet companionship. Quite the opposite, really. She drew in a shuddery breath. Patrina looked back distractedly and managed a wan smile. Patrina returned her focus to the Serpentine. As she did in all her daily visits here, she wondered about the poor birds and fish that made this their home during the warmer months.
Where did they go when the cold of life set in? A hiss split the quiet of the winter snowscape. She stiffened and turned, just as something cold, hard, and very wet hit her temple.

She rose to her feet and shook out her skirts. Patrina bent down, scooped up the moist dusting of snow and made a compact ball, unheeding the frigidity of cool moisture seeping through her kidskin gloves.
She waited. He jumped up. His eyes went wide as Patrina hurled her snowball. The force of the throw knocked his black cap from his head and covered his crop of golden locks in a film of white snow. Patrina replied by tossing another snowball. His eyes widened. Bothersome Boy thrust a finger toward her.
Well, when a young woman eloped with a gentleman of dishonorable intentions and Society discovered the truth, one tended to lose their status as lady, amongst respectable peers. Patrina threw another snowball at his shoulder. Good, little wretch should learn to not… The little girl, his sister? A gentleman strode toward her. He doffed his hat, exposing the most luxuriant golden locks, unfashionably long, and blindingly bright. Add to Basket. Book Description Createspace, Condition: New. New Book.

A Marquess for Christmas (Scandalous Seasons, book 5) by Christi Caldwell
At least it was not. Until a certain Lord Radcliff - and a true rake - decided to accidentally ruin her. The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. Captured by a Laird Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again.
The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees.
Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart?
