From a New York Times bestselling author: Sparks fly in this definitely-not-falling-in-love workplace romance between a handsome drifter chasing adventure, and a small-town jeweler who would never leave her home behind…
Dashing Scot Jonathan MacLean never returns to the same town twice. The happy-go-lucky philanthropist seeks constant adventure… and is desperate to outrun his past. When a blizzard traps him in a tiny mountaintop village, he meets a woman who tempts him with dreams he'd long since abandoned: Home. Community. Love. But other people’s livelihoods depend on him leaving for good as soon as the snow melts.
Talented jeweler Angelica Parker has spent her life fighting for recognition. She's Black, she's a woman, and she will prove her creations are the equal to any artisan in England. With a contract anchoring her in place for seven years, she lands the project of a lifetime. There's no room for error—or distractions. Such as the charming drifter whose warm embrace and melting kisses have become more precious than jewels...

This is the first biracial romance novel I’ve ever read and I thought I was beautiful. I couldn’t put it down.
That’s what gregarious vagabond Jonathan MacLean and black jewelry designer Angelica Parker are.
Jonathan is a refreshingly different hero. He never stays in one place longer than a week, he’s Calvin’s partner in Fit for a Duke. (Calvin and Jonathan’s stories are standouts in this series). Oh, he’s got his issues. But he sees the world with wonder.
Angelica is very focused, diligent, meticulous and creative. I liked that Jonathan saw her and thought she was beautiful.
Highly recommend for a refreshing historical read with great characters.
One night with the duke
Johnathan was a drifter. Always happy to meet new people in a new town and then be on his way. Until he ended up in Christmas town and meant Angelica. She’s a talented jeweler and she changes his view of everything he thought was important. They both learn that compromise is best.
