Growing up the middle child of five rambunctious girls, Lillian Prim doesn’t understand why two young boys visiting Hurst don’t know how to play until she meets their dashing guardian. The Marquis of Wythebury is commanding and intensely serious-minded. To her surprise, she’s captivated by him. It’s all she can do not to give into her feminine fantasies about her kissing him. Lillian has no intention of falling in love with the Marquis, but she will create Christmastide mischief and teach the boys and the handsome Marquis how to play, in Mistletoe, Mischief, and the Marquis, by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey.

Favorite Holiday Food/Recipe
All Sugared Up Spicy Pecans
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons warm water
3 cups pecans
Put everything but the pecans in a 1 gallon pot and bring to a soft boil over medium heat. Boil 2 minutes and then turn off heat. Add pecans. Stir and continue to coat the pecans until the mixture starts drying and clinging to pan. Empty onto a clean counter top and spread and separate the pecans. After the sugar mixture cools and forms a coating on the nuts you can put them in a Mason jar or candy dish to serve later or my favorite--immediately start eating them.
