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

Description

Crispin, the Duke of Hurst, has never met a woman he couldn't handle--until he's hit over the head with a basketful of mistletoe by a young lady who mistakes his intentions. When he gets into a tussle with her--and she can hold her own--Crispin knows he has finally met his match.

Miss Gwen Prim is mortified that she attacked a duke, but even more concerning is the way her resolve melts when she's near him. She's never felt this way about a London gentleman in her life. And with the magic of Christmas in the air, she may end up with a proposal she didn't expect...in this delightful Regency gem, The Duke and Miss Christmas by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey

Customer Reviews

lighthearted and quick reading story, it is the perfect introduction to Grey’s work and this series.

Crispin, Duke of Hurst is at a bit of loose ends at Christmastime, and accepts an invitation to his uncle’s country estate. Expecting a few house parties, good company and cheer, no one is more surprised than he when, after coming to the rescue of a young girl finds himself under attack from a hellion wielding a basket.

That hellion is none other than Gwen Primm, having gotten the wrong end of the stick when her little (and occasionally intractable) sister Sybil twists her ankle and Crispin is simply stepping in to help. Add to this misunderstanding, Gwen soon is informed that the attacked is a Duke, and a friend and fellow ‘club’ member of her brother in law.

A bad experience during her season has Gwen unwilling to acknowledge the attraction she feels, and the two of them are engaged in a battle of wills until inevitability and attraction take over. As just eighty-four pages, while the story itself is reasonably complete, I wanted more to show the characters and some time to build their relationship to better feel and believe in their connection. Smart dialogue, humor and a solid pathway for the couple all work in the abbreviated form, and no great swathes of information were missing, I just wanted more. A highly enjoyable, lighthearted and quick reading story, it is the perfect introduction to Grey’s work and this series.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
