Summary: Nathan Fitzroy hates the holidays. Estranged from his family for refusing to marry, he’s still expected to keep up appearances, which means attending their holiday celebrations.

One night in December, when Owen can’t stand his new role another moment, he sneaks away to the seediest molly house he can find, the Goat’s Horn, for a distraction.

When he sees the man again away from the molly house, he comes up with a plan to both spend more time with him and learn to be an earl. Owen offers him a position tutoring him before the start of the Christmas parties he’s supposed to attend. Nathan’s worst nightmare comes true when one of the clients of the Goat’s Horn recognizes him outside of the molly house.

But romance can still be found in his shadow. Jim Smith has just finished two years working for the notorious Lord Dixon as his concubine, a private, full-time prostitute at his country house, but it’s gotten him what he wanted, enough money to leave behind the brothels of London and buy himself a small country cottage where he can grow plants and live quietly with no one knowing about his time at Dixon’s or the years before that working as a prostitute.
