I really enjoyed this story.  It's a lovely bit of Christmas magic. 

While this story is quite short, it's sweet and delightful.  The Duke is dashing and Adriana is quick witted and brave. There is of course some drama, mainly caused by Adriana's deception and the prejudices of the upper class during the time period.  The Duke's family history of scandalous behavior allows him to stand up for Adriana and his secret daughter.  I enjoyed that Adriana is an author and that the Duke' has read her stories.  It's a neat way to get him to understand her without  tons of build up.

Their HEA feels well deserved and you are happy for them.


Alexander Hunt, Eighth Duke of Berresford, is aware his ward’s governess misrepresented herself to gain employment, and he’s quite displeased, even if she is one of the most intelligent women’s he’s ever met. His ward deserves a reputable governess, so he threatens to give Adriana the sack mere days before Christmas.

Desperate to convince the sexy duke not to tear her from the little girl she’s grown to adore, Adriana challenges him to prove she’s not the reputable governess he believed he hired. If he can seduce her before the Twelve Days of Christmas have come to an end, she will leave without protest. But when they find the challenge more difficult than either imagined, can they face the consequences of their decisions?


USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, Eva Devon, was raised on literary fiction, but quite accidentally and thankfully, she was introduced to romance one Christmas by Johanna Lindsey's Mallory Novella, The Present. A romance addict was born. She devoured every single Lindsey novel within a few months and moved on to contemporary and paranormal with gusto. Now, she loves to write her own roguish dukes, alpha males and the heroines who tame them. She loves to hear from her readers.
