Miss Isabelle Fletcher has one joy in life—her three French hens. Since they were a gift from a visiting countess, she treats them like pets, but they're recalcitrant and nothing but trouble, especially when they escape to bother her nearest neighbor—the handsome and shy Baron Hastings.
Evan Nicholas Radcliff has no time for such silly things as the annoying hens that interrupt his work. He's on a tight deadline and can't keep humoring his pretty, curious neighbor or her wild flock. Except he secretly lives for those brief meetings. He'd woo her if only he could summon the courage.
With Christmas Eve upon them and the hens once more in the wind, Isabelle and Nicholas are thrown together due to a large misunderstanding that starts a long overdue conversation. What might have begun as a fowl Christmastide has the potential to turn into a happily ever after.
