A Castle for Christmas Plot

Sophie Brown (Brooke Shields), one of the most famous romance novelists in the world. Her series on Emma Gale has sparked backlash, a reaction that can only be resolved with a damage control visit to the always-chaotic Drew Barrymore Show. Instead of sticking around and dealing with the drama, Sophie hightails it to Scotland to visit the castle her father lived in when he was a boy.

Dun Dunbar Castle has fallen on hard times despite the hard work of its current owner, a duke named Myles (Cary Elwes). After knowing that the castle is for sale, Sophie has a bright idea: she’s going to buy the castle, get in touch with her Scottish roots, write a new novel, and fix her life! 

Myles agrees to this – if, and only if, she agrees to live in the castle with him until Christmas while he shows her the ropes. His ulterior motives: show this American how difficult it is to own and maintain a castle and scare her off. Will these two fall in love over the holidays or will they both spend Christmas alone this year?
