The Duke and Miss Christmas is a mesmerizing holiday tale. It has the perfect blend of comedy and romance. Crispin came across a tad too serious at times but Gwen managed to keep him on his toes.
Amelia Grey writes enjoyable historical romances that bring to life stories that are emotional and fun at the same time. That is something that can always be expected from any of her works. In The Duke and Miss Christmas she uses family unity, the standard Christmas ball, a handsome stranger and a spirited heroine to spin a tale of holiday spirit and hope. I liked the story a great deal but wish it had been a longer one. It came across somewhat rushed.
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 gentleman in her life. And with the magic of Christmas in the air, she may end up with a proposal she didn't expect...
