Summary: What Lady Jenny wants for Christmas...
For Christmas, soft-spoken Lady Jenny Windham craves the freedom to pursue her artistic ambitions, though it will mean scandalizing her ducal parents and abandoning all hope of a family of her own. She confides her plans to successful artist Elijah Harrison when he's commissioned to paint a portrait of her small nephews, because assisting Elijah will bring Jenny that much closer to her heart's desire—won't it?
...Will break both their hearts.
Elijah Harrison finds in his unlikely assistant not only an inspiring muse and unappreciated talent, but also a lovely and passionate woman. If Elijah supports Jenny's career, his own professional interests will suffer, but more significantly, he will lose Jenny forever. Both Jenny and Elijah must choose between true love and a lifelong dream.
Thoughts: Lady Jenny is the last unmarried Windham sibling. Even though she knows they mean well... she is frustrated with the pity she has being getting from her family and the constant shuffling around they do with her. Jenny has been on the market for a while and in all the time she hasn't really been interested in anyone. But in walks Elijah Harrison. He is a talented and popular artist. She finds herself very attracted to him. Said attraction and sharing their mutual love for art brightens both of their holiday cheer.
Excellent story! Being the only sibling in my family still unmarried, I felt a real connection to Jenny and how she felt. Lady Jenny's Christmas Portrait is sweet, heart warming and enchanting. Jenny and Elijah's stared talent as an interesting factor to the story. I think out of all the the Windham Christmas novels, this one is my favorites. Jenny marks the last of the Windham sibling books - I'm definitely gonna miss spending time with them.
