Beware romantic spirits from Christmas past…

Due to the terms of an estranged relative’s will, the Duke of Silkridge must revisit the cold, unforgiving mountains where he lost everything he once loved. As soon as he restores his family legacy, he’ll return to London where he belongs. He definitely won’t rekindle the forbidden spark crackling between him and the irresistible spitfire he’d left behind…

Noelle Pratchett is immune to charming scoundrels like the arrogant duke. He stole her heart, stole a kiss, and then stole away one night never to return. Now he’s back—and they both know he won’t stay. But how can she maintain her icy shields when every heated glance melts her to her core?

The Twelve Dukes of Christmas is a laugh-out-loud historical romance series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this Erica Ridley book which was loosely based on A Christmas Carol.
Benjamin had an excellent reason for disliking Christmas. Both of his parents had died on that illustrious holiday. The only reason Benjamin has returned to Cressmouth is to retrieve his mother’s locket that his grandfather had taken from Jim five years ago and refused to return.
Noelle like all of the residents of this town that celebrated Christmas year round loved the holiday and it’s spirit.
She loved Benjamin too but wanted to hate this man who had left her and Cressmouth behind.
Will these two continue to be at odds or could they give their love a second chance?
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames. There isn’t an abundance of intimacy between our hero and heroine in this heartwarming story but it is an essential part of this story.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title to read from the author.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A lovely young widow seeks a quiet gentleman, but finds a handsome rakehell instead.

Lizzie Symmons is newly widowed, with an estate and a comfortable income. But she’s off to London to find a gentleman who will give her the family she so desperately craves. She knows just the kind of man she wants–gentle, studious, preferring the quiet of country life and horses to the hubbub of town.

However, after five daughters, the Countess of Sweeting is done trying to bear an heir. It is now up to Rupert to produce the next Earl. To do so, he must marry, a prospect he loathes.

Rupert plans to find a biddable lady he can wed, bed, and leave in the country, while he carries on with his carefree life in London. But then he meets Lizzie. She sets Rupert’s body alight, but worse than that, she inspires goodness in him, makes him yearn for the heart and hearth his friends have attained.

Will Lizzie steal the rogue’s heart, so the next Earl is conceived in love? Or will Rupert’s stubbornness drive her to find another man?
