It’s 1815, and swans are Arabella’s only company…
Arabella Fitzroy always knew she was to have an arranged marriage, and this Christmas, it’s finally time to meet him. Hopes high and best foot forward, Arabella is astonished to find Lord Nathaniel Cartier nothing more than a boor with bad taste and worse manners.
Stuck in his cold home with his parents while the rest of her family enjoy Christmas together, Arabella spends her days at the lake, talking to the swans, determined to break the arranged marriage. Until a chance encounter and some vulnerability changes everything by the lakeside. A secret about the swans will reveal Nathaniel Cartier is far more than she bargained for…
Seven swans a swimming may look serene on the surface, but Arabella is about to discover that life with Nathaniel would be anything but serene.
As she swims against the tide of her family’s wishes, can Arabella resist the temptation to enjoy Nathaniel’s kisses even if the engagement is called off?
