Saints and Sinners, book one
Christmas is the season for family, fun and for falling in love in this delightful holiday romp!
Widowed Nicolas Westfall, the Duke of Stapleton, cannot prevent the upcoming debut for his youngest daughter no matter how much he wishes her eventual marriage wouldn’t leave him all alone. Convinced to host a Christmas Ball to prepare her for the season, he’s aware he’s considered a catch on the marriage mart too, but Nicolas is drawn to companion Gillian Thorpe instead.
Gillian was hired to prepare the duke’s daughter for her first season, but its not easy when the girl hasn’t the least interest in the men and the widowed father makes her knees weak when he laughs with her. Gillian respects and admires (perhaps too frequently) the Duke of Stapleton and when she’s lured into a mistletoe kiss with him, will she be able to stop at one or even want to?
Note: A shorter version of the Duke and I was previously published in the Hot Winter Nights Racy Regency Christmas Collection.
Reviews of “The Duke and I” as first published in the Hot Winter Nights Anthology:
- An enthralling, sizzling story of finding love a second time around. 5 stars ~ Janet via Goodreads.
- When by society’s rules a couple shouldn’t be together, yet are drawn to each other like moths to a flame, I love to see them overcome their obstacles. Their passion when given into is hot hot hot. 4 stars ~ AnnMarie via Goodreads.
- Sweet story that I definitely recommend … They each bring joy to the other in the little moments we see; very cute. 4 stars ~ Juliana via Goodreads
- Different from most romances, but an amazing story. I loved that they were a more mature couple so there was a different vibe from both of them. 5 Hearts ~ Kelly The Sassy Book Lover
