Crispin, the Duke of Hurst, has never met a woman he couldn’t handle–until he’s hit over the head with a basketful of mistletoe by a young lady who mistakes his intentions. When he gets into a tussle with her–and she can hold her own–Crispin knows he has finally met his match.
Miss Gwen Prim is mortified that she attacked a duke, but even more concerning is the way her resolve melts when she’s near him. She’s never felt this way about a London gentleman in her life. And with the magic of Christmas in the air, she may end up with a proposal she didn’t expect…in this delightful Regency gem, The Duke and Miss Christmas by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey
I’m not normally a fan of historical romances, but with it being Christmas time and the title of this story, I could not pass up the chance to read it. I have to say that I really enjoyed this story. It’s a sweet novella with a little hilarity thrown in. When the Duke is visiting his brother for the holidays, he comes across a young girl who has been hurt and tries to help. Only, Gwenn thinks he has other intentions and embarrasses herself by attacking him in order to protect her little sister. When she finds out that he is a Duke, Gwenn is both embarrassed and shocked at being attracted to the kind gentleman. The Duke, Crispin, is invited to a party throw by Gwenn’s brother in law and that’s when things become interesting. They continue to communicate with one another after the Ball and they eventually give in to their feelings and fall in love.
This is such a cute, sweet, novella worth the time to read.
