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!
Light, Fun, and Can Be Read Any Time of Year!
This isn’t a Christmas book. Enjoy it for what it is, a light, fun, regency romance. I could imagine Erica Ridley giggling while she wrote this. It was such fun to read. Rake meets independent young spinster. What could go wrong? Well, misunderstandings, secrets, tricks, and antics cause havoc for these two. The rake is almost too old to continue as a rake. The spinster is past her coming out days and is an alchemist, much too smart for any man to desire, or so she believes.
If you’ve never read historical romance, this would be a great place to start. It was fast, fun, and furiously hilarious. I’ve since picked up more by this author and can’t wait to read them!
