Unexpected gifts are sometimes the best…
It’s almost Christmas, a time of joy and family gatherings—but not for Jayne. Forced to flee her home, Jayne seeks anonymity in the crowded streets of Victorian London. Desperate and alone, she accepts a surprising invitation from a wealthy woman who employs a Yeti as a footman—whom Jayne finds unexpectedly attractive.
Milann likes the little human female from the moment she runs into him—literally— outside the glove shop, and is pleased when his employer offers her a position. Despite being gently reared, Jayne gets along well with everyone at Paulette’s Tea Room—educated and low-born, Yeti and human alike. Yet even amidst the holiday bustle of shopping and decorating, Milann becomes aware that Jayne has a secret weighing on her.
Can he convince her to let him within the walls of her guarded heart? Can she accept the gifts he offers, and welcome a happily-ever-after that’s very different from any she ever imagined?
