A Regency Christmas Romance

WholeNewThe Dark Duke they call him.

And he certainly matches up to his name. From his looks to his constantly furrowed brow, Miss Beatrice Edgerton is under no illusions as to the status of their arranged marriage.

It will be very much one of convenience. With him conveniently providing the title her family so desperately wants and her family bringing in plenty of money for his dilapidated home. She is simply grateful he is younger than her first husband.

Lord Morton, Duke of Hartwich, is only a little perturbed by the vibrant Beatrice. After all, he sets her straight from the very first day of their marriage–this is one of mutual benefit. In one way only. She can expect no affection or romance from him.

Because, frankly, he is incapable of such things. Being a one-legged duke with a slightly dark past brings enough challenges without him having to worry about a wife too. His days of concern for anyone are long gone.

Unfortunately, It is not only the duke’s dark demeanor she has to deal with. Someone is trying to cause trouble for them but they cannot fathom who or why.

Grace is determined to make the best of the situation, even whilst spending Christmas with the duke alone in the eerie Hartwich Hall. Why, perhaps she might even be able to change the duke’s mind about their relationship.

Especially after they share a fiery kiss…or three…

If you love Regency romance with some heat, brooding dukes, and an arranged marriage at Christmas, be sure to get your copy today!


My Thoughts:

The Dark Duke is what most people call him.
He certainly matches up to his name, from his looks to his constant frowning countenance. Miss Beatrice Edgerton is under no illusions as to the status of their arranged marriage.
It will be very much one of convenience for him at least. He has conveniently provided the title her family so desperately wants and her family bringing in plenty of money for him to restore his dilapidated home.
The man is fortunately younger than her first husband and although he wants nothing to do with her in the marriage bed Beatrice can not help but be intrigued. She most definitely wants more than a marriage in name only although that is what she seems to have received.
I loved this book. It is perhaps the best one I have read recently by Samantha Holt. Once I started it I couldn’t put it down. It contains a blossoming love and a bit of danger.
I gave this book a well deserved 4.5 of 5.0 stars. The plot and character development is very well done.
I received a Digital ARC via Booksprout and am leaving a voluntary review.


SamanthaUSA Today Bestselling author Samantha Holt lives in a small village in England with her twin girls and a dachshund called Duke. If you’re not sure where to start why not try…

 Amelia and the Viscount (Bluestocking Brides #1) for a fun, slightly hot shorter length read. Meet the Chadwick sisters and follow their adventures in each of their standalone stories.

 You’re the Rogue That I Want (Rogues of Redmere #1) is a longer read with heat, witty dialogue, a feisty heroine and adventure. All books in the series are standalone.

 Sinful Confessions is the first in the Cynfell Brothers Series. These are all novella length and standalone–ideal for a quick dip into the world of the sexy Cynfell brothers.

 Wake Me With a Kiss is a sweet, fairytale romance. Twists on Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella are also available if you love a clean, fun read.

 To Steal a Highlander’s Heart is a full length dive into the world of sexy highlanders. For those who love braw Scots, some steamy scenes, and medieval romance, this series is a perfect escape.
