    very cute, romantic, and well written romance nove

    Virginia, the arrow headed aviary keeper of Christmas, and her cat “Duke” unexpectedly meet up with a wounded war hero. Virginia decides to nurse him back to health, and after fairly little hesitation “Mr. T”, who thinks he is incognito, lets her. Of course they fall in love, but it is hopeless for both of them – or is it not? Another very cute, romantic, and well written romance novella set in the town of Christmas, where the holiday cheer goes on all year round.

    Liquified my gooey marshmallow heart

    I loved having this chance to finally get to know Virginia better. Her roll in the previous books had left me thinking she was a bit of an odd duck. And, while she isn’t the typical Regency woman, all her cryptic comments and actions now make much more sense. She’s been hiding so much strength, passion, and a heartbreaking vulnerability. Theodore is every inch the strong, silent, noble man – not just a nobleman. A war hero who deeply values his honor, he’s a little at a loss when he’s sidelined by his injuries and Virginia forces him to accept her help as his nursemaid. (And that of Duke, her temperamental cat with more personality than this book can hold.) I loved this pair together. Watching them open up to one another liquified my gooey marshmallow heart. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through NetGalley.

    Love knows no bounds

    Virginia has been shown little love from her family during her lifetime. After a disastrous first season, her father sent her away so her younger sisters might have a chance at good matches. Through perseverance and a determined spirit, she made her way to the town of Christmas and has made a life for herself at the Castle. She cares for every living thing and is content to do so until she realizes she wants more. Theodore O’Hanlon, Viscount Ormondton, has come to his friend’s estate in Christmas to recuperate after severe injuries occurred while fighting in the war. He wants no soul in Christmas to know who he is, including the woman who has taken it upon herself to become his personal nurse. Virginia takes to the mysterious Mr T like she does all her wounded animals and begins to make progress despite the stubbornness she’s met with. Ridley takes a fresh turn on the nurse/patient love story. She gives us a young woman terrified of the ton and large gatherings, yet is completely selfless when it comes to helping others. She doesn’t know the Viscount and doesn’t care who he is. He needs help and she desires to give it. I absolutely adored Virginia! She’s sweet, a little sassy, and doesn’t give in to her patient’s grumpiness. I completely understood why Ormondton chose to hide away once his family history and experiences in the war were explained. I love how Ridley brought him to life slowly as he interacted with Virginia. Never Say Duke is a slow burn with a well earned happily ever after. I’m excited to see what Ridley has in store for the rest of the dukes! I received Never Say Duke for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    Virginia is a delightfully unique heroine!

    Theo has sequestered himself at his friend's remote guest house, hoping to recover from his crippling war wounds in complete privacy. Virginia has devoted her life to rescuing and rehabbing all sorts of wounded animals, and she sees Theo as just another creature needing her help. Neither one expects that they could develop anything more than a nurse/patient relationship, since Theo is expected to marry the woman his father chose years ago, and Virginia knows there's absolutely no way she'd ever be accepted in Theo's titled life. I love how the author described just enough of Virginia's atypical personality traits to give us an understanding that she'd fall somewhere on the autism spectrum today, without anachronistically giving us an actual label or diagnosis. Theo's tender insight into how to make her comfortable around him was very sweet, and the epitome of gentlemanly behavior. That he would want to shows just how quickly he fell for her, long before he could even admit it to himself. It was refreshing to see Virginia completely accepted for who - and h0w - she is in the charming community of Christmas. Even so, the epilogue was even more satisfying and did much to right the wrongs that she had endured. It's a wonderful romance, and my favorite of this series so far. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Another Great Christmas Story!

    This was a fun book to read in the 12 Dukes of Christmas series. It was great to see Virginia in her own story, I love series because you get to see some of the same characters again. I enjoyed this book because Virginia is so strong and says what she thinks, she doesn't play games and hide her emotions. And being that way helped Theo open up and heal. The chemistry between the two of them has you rooting for them from the start. And of course, Duke the cat is the perfect addition to the story! I received an advanced copy so I could volunteer my honest opinion about the book. I recommend it, and I recommend all the books in the series, so far.
