She's loved him since she was practically a child who followed him and her brother around in hopes of garnering his attention. Now years later Lady Gwyneth Beaumont has decided she must make him notice her before it's too late. This beauty can have any man, but she has lost her heart to Viscount James Ashworth and no one else will do.
The Viscount has been in France for the past three years undercover for the crown. Ash, as James is called, intends to finish with his final case and return to life of lord of his home, but when an assignment protecting the Prince Regent and a Christmas gathering goes awry, only Lady Gwyneth's presence with his will help. Ash has been trying to resist Gwyneth for years. Being his best friend's sister doesn't help the situation and James in no way wants Gwyneth in any sort of danger. Gwyneth is a force to be reckoned with and when she discovers a secret, she could potentially be in a great deal of danger.
Ash doing his job is paramount, but it protecting Gwyneth becomes more than a job and when sparks begin to fly between the two, things become very interesting.
A Christmas Code by Jacki Delecki is a novella that really packs a punch. This is the first story I have read by Ms. Delecki and I have to say that I truly enjoyed it. Both Gwyneth and Ash and interesting and engaging and their romance is a draw. The backdrop of the Christmas season along with the espionage is a great twist. I am looking forward to reading more from this talented author in the future.
