As the daughter of the Devilish Dandy, Sarah Cresswell is excluded from society. She is content with her life helping unfortunate children until Lord Chance sweeps through her door demanding her help in finding his mother's jewels that have been stolen. Determined to prove to the arrogant Lord that she is capable of finding any jewel thief in London Sarah guides Lord Chance through the seamy underside of town. It never occurs to the practical maiden that her heart might be in danger or that it will take the efforts of her notorious father to make her most cherished Christmas wish come true.

The Christmas Wish is the first in my next regency trilogy. Sarah, Emma and Rachel Cresswell are known throughout London as the Devil's Daughters and are rejected by the Ton because of it. But like their charming rascal of a father, The Devilish Dandy, nothing can crush the spirits of these three indomitable sisters. And nothing can stand in the way of their hearts' desires.From Library Journal:
When his irresponsible younger brother "borrows" his mother's heirloom diamonds and then has them stolen from him in return, Oliver Chance, Earl of Spense, reluctantly agrees to rescue his brother once again. In a desperate attempt to get the jewels back before his mother discovers their absence during the Christmas holidays, Oliver seeks the help of Sarah Cresswell, daughter of the fugitive Devilish Dandy. But Sarah is not the flamboyant sleuth he expects, and as they work together to unmask the thief, he is captivated by her intelligence, frankness, and perceptiveness and ultimately finds himself in love with a scandal-tainted woman whom society will never accept. And then the Devilish Dandy interferes. Likable, interesting characters, good chemistry between the protagonists, and a clever series premise (the first of a projected trilogy about the three daughters of a notorious jewel thief) lend appeal to this lively, lightly humorous tale. Regency author Raleigh (A Bride for Lord Brasleigh) lives in Ewing, MO.
