Twelve Days of Seduction by Maire Claremont
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?

review: The Twelve Days of Seduction
The Twelve Days of Seduction by Maire Claremont is a beautiful short story about love, respect and overcoming the separation of social classes.
Alexander Hunt is the Eighth Duke of Berresford and has just discovered that his ward's governess is actually a fraud and a (Gasp) novelist!
Adriana Flint has done everything she can to better herself beyond her circumstances of birth. She is now a governess to a wonderful little girl that she loves very much. When His Grace confronts her about her lies and confirms that he knows she is a (Gasp) novelist she believes she will be out in the snow on Christmas Eve.
Instead, the attraction His Grace has felt towards the off-limits governess has surfaced with a vengeance and this Christmas they will both be seduced.
