Twelve Days of Seduction by Maire Claremont

Alexander Hunt, Eighth Duke of Berresford, is aware his ward’s governess misrepresented herself to gain employment, and he’s quite displeased, even if she is one of the most intelligent women’s he’s ever met. His ward deserves a reputable governess, so he threatens to give Adriana the sack mere days before Christmas.

Desperate to convince the sexy duke not to tear her from the little girl she’s grown to adore, Adriana challenges him to prove she’s not the reputable governess he believed he hired. If he can seduce her before the Twelve Days of Christmas have come to an end, she will leave without protest.

But when they find the challenge more difficult than either imagined, can they face the consequences of their decisions?

My Thoughts:

This amazingly well written holiday romance novella is not to be missed..
Adriana has come to love her charge as if she were her own child. She is aware that Georgiana is more than the Dukes ward. She is his daughter.

This fact is something that members of the ton are not aware of but they do speculate.

When Alexander let’s Adriana know he is aware of her secret he also threatens to dismiss her from her position as his daughter’s governess.

They enter into a bargain of seduction.
They find their bargain more challenging to carry out than they could have imagined.

This sweetly romantic tale is one for the keeper shelf.
Although I was provided a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review, I choose to purchase it from Amazon.

I gave this lovely Christmas tale of happily ever after 5.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames.

This is a sweetly sensual romance that I wanted to keep to reread whenever I need a happy bit of tears.
I read and reviewed this book voluntarily and all thoughts are my own.

RT Reviewer’s Choice Winner for Best First Historical,

Máire Claremont, first fell in love with Mr. Rochester not Mr. Darcy.

Realizing the errors of her ways, Maire now looks for a real life Darcy and saves her deliciously dark heroes for the pages she writes.

CHERYL HOLT introduces her new FOREVER series with four stirring novels of passion, drama, and love forevermore…

ABIGAIL HENLEY is an earl’s daughter, raised to a life of wealth and privilege. But all was lost when her parents died in an accident and distant relatives inherited. With no prospects and her dowry squandered, she’s forced to work as a governess, caring for the children of the rich and notorious. She’s lonely, chafing at the unfairness of her situation, and wishing she could change her fate—or at least regain some of the status and position she once had.

ALEXANDER WALLACE was ruined by scandal. With his being from a prominent military family, he expected to have a long and successful career in the army. Instead, he’s a scorned, dissolute, and divorced man who was forced to resign his commission and is raising two daughters who were sired by another man. He’s weary of gossip and innuendo, and he leads a reckless life, trying to prove he doesn’t care about anything.

When Abigail arrives to work for Alex and watch over his two girls, she stumbles on a family torn apart by tragedy. Can she heal the wounds that have been inflicted?

Hayden Henley left England at age twenty, whisked away by his parents after a deadly duel that nearly cost him his life. In the intervening years, tragedy repeatedly pummeled him, and it’s taken him an entire decade to return home. He arrives to find he’s lost everything: his title, his lands, his fortune, his good name. He’s bitter and driven to reclaim what has always been his…

Helen Barnes is a penniless spinster whose life—despite her best efforts—has never moved in the direction she planned. While she only ever hoped to marry a stable, kind fellow and live a normal life, she’s been forced to care for her scandal-ridden father instead.

Hayden would never shackle himself to her though. He’s determined to make up for lost time by marrying as high as he’s able. But some connections are simply too potent to ignore and—sometimes—Fate has other ideas. With love in the balance and family secrets finally laid bare, Helen might just turn out to be the woman Hayden has always been so desperate to find…
