A duke by any other name…
When the Duke of Dashlington gets stuck into a tiny village during a snowstorm, there is little to do but drink himself into a stupor. The problem? Well, it's hard to count just one. He stumbles into the snow, falls down, and can't seem to get himself back up again. Imagine the indignity of dying in a snowbank? But when a little Christmas angel comes and rescues him, he can't resist stealing a kiss. She looks heaven sent and tastes like the sweetest gingerbread. It all seems innocent enough until the next morning when he realizes she was no angel but an eligible lady and one who might just request marriage as a boon. How does a duke get out of such a situation? He lies about his identity, of course. Which means his troubles are only just beginning.
A lady in need of a Christmastide miracle…
Lady Noelle hasn't slept properly in months. Which is exactly why she is awake when an unknown gentleman falls into the snow. When he doesn't rise, she dashes to his rescue, forgetting all about the wish she'd just been making on a Christmas star. A request to help her sisters overcome the loss of their mother. But once she reaches the gentleman, several things become apparent. He's young, handsome, well dressed, and possibly, her wish come true…
Now, if he'd just cooperate.
Loved the book. Kept me coming back every chance I got. But what happened to the link for Holly’s story?
My Dashing Duke
Obviously a young author attempting to write a historical romance. The problem I had with this story was the dialogue was not fitting for that time period.Too many current modern day expressions otherwise the story was cute. The author needs to do some serious research into period expressions if she wants to be accurate and succeed writing period romance stories. I would not be interested in reading other offers she has.
5 Stars for an engaging read!
Excellent book. A true love Christmas love story!
