Due to the terms of an estranged relative's will, the Duke of Silkridge must revisit the cold, unforgiving mountains where he lost everything he once loved. As soon as he restores his family legacy, he'll return to London where he belongs. He definitely won't rekindle the forbidden spark crackling between him and the irresistible spitfire he'd left behind...
Noelle Pratchett is immune to charming scoundrels like the arrogant duke. He stole her heart, stole a kiss, and then stole away one night never to return. Now he's back—and they both know he won't stay. But how can she maintain her icy shields when every heated glance melts her to her core?

Once Upon a Duke
Such a sweet, second-chances, Erica Ridley love story.
Wonderful story to start the season.
I love the idea of a town that celebrates Christmas everyday of the year. Of course there is a Duke that is a bit of a broken hearted Scrooge and a the women in his past he can’t forget. Their paths cross again after 5 years for the reading of his Grandfather will. The only reason he showed up was to retrieve and family heirloom that his Grandfather stole from him. The sooner the better as they say, but his Grandfather had other ideas.
Sweet story, enjoyable read.
