Kiss of a Duke


12 Dukes of Christmas Book 2

by Erica Ridley

Amazon|Apple| Nook|KOBO|GooglePlay


Just one more kiss… (Milady, it’s cold outside)

Lady chemist Penelope Mitchell took England by storm with Duke, a perfume for men that has women swooning at their feet. To prove the same aphrodisiacal potency of her upcoming version for ladies, the new perfume must cause a rake to fall in love with her in ten days. And she has just the man in mind…

Sexy pleasure-seeker Nicholas Pringle—known as “Saint Nick” for his wicked ways—wants to end the absurd cologne that has every young buck believing himself a ladies’ man. How hard can it be to charm a spinster into changing her mind? But when Penelope does the charming, this rakish scoundrel must decide between losing the war… or losing his heart.

The 12 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:

This is without a doubt one of the most entertaining books I have read this year.
Penelope Mitchell cares for nothing beyond her laboratory with her concoction of a men’s scent that makes all men who wear it swoon worthy.
Nicholas Pringle, rake extraordinaire frankly doesn’t want the competition so he decides to buy the rights of the scent from Penelope. Only the lady has other ideas.
This is a laugh out loud, well written regency tale. I read it twice and loved it as much the second time as I did the first.
The play on names and even the misunderstanding between our hero and heroine make this a must read for this holiday season and many more to come.
I gave this second book of this series 4.95 of 5.0 stars for storyline, character development and plot. There is only one physically intimate scene but it gets a warm rating of 3 of 5 flames.
Give this reader more delightful Erica Ridley romance for this and many more holiday seasons to come.
I received a complimentary Digital ARC of this book by invitation to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A Regency Rake in disguise...
Reckless Nathan Raveneau, the toast of Regency London, leads a secret life on the island of Barbados. To gain land that will provide the upper hand over an island enemy, Raveneau strikes a bargain with the worried father of a headstrong daughter. After all, how hard could it be to watch over Adrienne Beauvisage, who is employed as a companion to an elderly noblewoman? And keeping Adrienne chaste until her twenty-first birthday should be easy enough in the English countryside, he reckons…until Raveneau himself falls under the minx’s spell.

Adrienne is both outraged and intrigued by the man who calls himself Nathan Essex. She knows little of the threats that lurk at the castle of eccentric Lady Thomasina Harms… or of the daring that Raveneau, in his guise as Nathan Essex, must employ to keep her out of harm’s way.

The Duke of Danger

The Duke of Danger - BK 6

The Untouchables Book 6

by Darcy Burke



After killing his opponent in a duel, Lionel Maitland, Marquess of Axbridge, is known as the Duke of Danger. Tortured by guilt, he shields himself with a devil-may-care attitude. However, when he kills another man in another duel, he’s beyond redemption, even though it wasn’t his fault. He refuses to smear a dead man’s name, especially when he’s left behind a blameless widow who doesn’t deserve an even bigger scandal.

Widowed and destitute, Lady Emmaline Townsend must marry the man of her parents’ choosing or beg unsympathetic relatives for support. The only way out is to ask for help from the one man she’s sworn to hate, the man who owes her anything she asks, the man who killed her husband. They strike a devil’s bargain in which passion simmers just beneath the surface. But her dead husband’s transgressions come back to haunt them and threaten their chance at love.

My Thoughts:

Just when I think Darcy Burke can’t possibly write a better book she more than exceeds my expectations.
This entire series has been remarkable, but Lionel’s and Emmaline’s story has been the best yet. This somewhat sad tale has just enough of several different elements to make it a keeper on any historical romance reader’s shelf.
It is a poignant tale that is filled with enough heated intimacy to set fire to the sheets in the reader’s imagination. I literally could not put it down. I came close to being late for work trying to find a stopping point.
This untouchables book #6 is not to be missed.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 5 of 5 flames. The intimate scenes are scorching!
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title to read from the author and her publicist. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
