Kiss of a Duke

Book 2, 12 Dukes of Christmas

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Just one more kiss… (Milady, it’s cold outside)

Lady chemist Penelope Mitchell took England by storm with Duke, a perfume for men that has women swooning at their feet. To prove the same aphrodisiacal potency of her upcoming version for ladies, the new perfume must cause a rake to fall in love with her in ten days. And she has just the man in mind…

Sexy pleasure-seeker Nicholas Pringle—known as “Saint Nick” for his wicked ways—wants to end the absurd cologne that has every young buck believing himself a ladies’ man. How hard can it be to charm a spinster into changing her mind? But when Penelope does the charming, this rakish scoundrel must decide between losing the war... or losing his heart.

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a laugh-out-loud historical romance series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!

Two Turtle Doves

The second trip to Cressmouth, the town with Christmas all year long, is just as delightful as the first. What do you do when Saint Nick comes to town? Why, you bake him cookies and leave them by the fireplace. At least that’s what Penelope does when she gets a visit from Nicholas Pringle (a rogue known as Saint Nick). He is going to be the test subject for her latest “love is chemistry” perfume, and she entices him with biscuits (cookies). Neither of these people believe in love - at first. The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, the more confused they become. Watching them unravel their dilemma is laugh-out-loud entertaining.

Loveable, quirky characters and a charming holiday setting make this a heartwarming Christmas story. Nick’s brother, Chris Pringle, and Penelope’s friends Virginia and Gloria make up a wonderful supporting cast and all try to help bring these two to a happy ending. Will they succeed? Hope so!

Watch for the tip of the Christmas cap to our favorite Holiday stories (again). There are two turtle doves, but not in the aviary with the partridge in a pear tree. You will love how they came to be in the story! Happy Christmas! I merrily recommend this one. It’s a winner.

wonderful romance

I enjoyed the story of Penelope and Nicholas. I have loved all of Erica Ridley’s books and this one is no exception. Ridley has a talent for building and layering her characters. They become complex people that are quite relatable. I can’t wait to read more.

Kiss of a Duke

“It was only a kiss. How did he end up like this?” Wow what a great read! He loves her more than biscuits. Yet who wants a rake ? Penelope does she just doesn’t know it.
