From a New York Times bestselling author: Secrets and scandal abound when two strong-willed opposites are snowbound together in this witty, heartwarming romance!
As the daughter of a duke, Lady Isabelle’s pristine reputation is paramount. Her high status is how she’ll attract the titled suitor her mother insists she wed. When Belle’s chaperone falls ill en route to a party, she must pose as an independent widow to avoid gossip. Why not have a wee innocent flirtation with a handsome tailor staying at the same inn? She’ll be gone in the morning…
A sudden blizzard upends Calvin McAlistair’s plans when he’s snowbound at a posting-house.

Dawn with a Duke by Erica Ridley
Erica Ridley’s historical romances never disappoint & always titillates your curiosity & imagination❣️. Dawn with a Duke is about Belle, daughter of a Duke, & Calvin, a genius & creative tailor, both of whom are trapped in a snowstorm at a posting inn on their way to Cressmouth (known as Christmas throughout England). Belle is an artist & as a woman can only work under a male pseudonym‼️ Calvin, though, admires her talent & she ends up illustrating his creations for his new venture! Read the book & enjoy the author’s beautiful descriptions of Belle’s paintings, snowy landscapes & meet the supporting characters‼️👍. I preordered Night with a Duke, the next in the Dukes of Christmas series! I guarantee you’ll enjoy many hours of reading pleasure with any & all of Erica’s novels❣️🥰.
Fit for a Duke
Fit for a Duke.
Well, an uncommonly talented tailor and fashion designer, named Calvin.
What I liked? It was utterly refreshing to have our hero a tailor who is exceptional at his craft and his innovative business venture ala pret-a-porter Fit for a Duke. Loved that Calvin is socially awkward and not a rake. He’s charming and so much more interesting than the predictable boring old rake.
Belle is a dukes’ sister and has been well trained not to think and that reputation is everything. She often lacks a spine and common sense. Though she is kind and a talented artist, she takes no credit for her work.
I liked that they brought out the best in each other when they are snowed in in Houville (just embrace the Christmas themes).
Recommend for a charming read that tackles class differences (she’s a lady, he’s a tailor).
