    easy and entertaining read

    Christopher is looking for a wife. One that would travel and see the world with him. And like the stars. Yet he finds himself surrounded only by ladies looking for a quick romp, after his brother, a famous rake, is not available any more. A friend suggests Gloria as a match maker for him, but upon visiting with her he recognizes her as an ignorant dreamer he met the night before. Gloria, herself an accomplished astronomer, likes to play out her imagination even if she is aware of underlying science. When Christopher belittles her, she is too proud to set him right. The uneasy couple sets out to find a wife for Christopher, while reluctantly start to appreciate each other. This was, like the other "Dukes of Christmas" novellas, an easy and entertaining read. It did not capture me as much as Kiss of a Duke, probably because both characters acted unnatural (e.g. Christopher jumping to conclusions way too fast), and Gloria's phobia for water did not make any sense to me. And Christopher was the one who had to make all the compromising. Don't let this scare you away, though - well written and well worth the time spend! A 3-star rating for me is a book I enjoyed, I will look for other books of the author, but I do not see me reading this same book again. 4-stars would be a book kept on my shelf to re-read. This novella was close, but not close enough to a 4-star read.

    I want more Christmas already

    This may simply be proving that I’m nothing more than a squishy mass of gooey marshmallow, but Gloria’s story reduced me to tears – multiple times. Her justly earned fears are utterly heartbreaking. And Christopher’s wanderlust is almost as devastating. Especially when the pair are squared off in opposition to one another. I loved watching these two very different yet so similar people fall in love with each other. It hurt my heart to witness how much both Gloria and Christopher were willing to sacrifice for the other’s happiness. I’ve only just finished this book and I want more Christmas already. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author from NetGalley.

    Fun romantic read

    I'm loving this series! This third book was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed reading it and did it in one afternoon since I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book, it was funny and romantic. I was given an advanced copy so I could voluntarily share my honest opinion. Pick up your copy, I know you'll love it too.

    historical holiday romance

    Christopher Pringle is ready to marry but having difficulty finding a suitable bride – one that won’t leave him and will enjoy traveling. In spite of the women he is introduced to by Gloria Godwin…women that might be more suitable to his wants and desires…he falls for her instead. Trying to convince her to be his bride is not easy because the two are such opposites in what they want in life…at least it seems so for most of the book. This was a fun little love story that is novella length and was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    This book is for someone who is not me

    This was… a book for someone who is more of a fan of ‘regency romance’ as a <i>genre</i>, and who is less invested in historical fiction actually being historical, than I am. I began by expecting to be annoyed with it for having Too Many Dukes, but in fact, despite the title, the hero is not a duke. Instead I found it impossible to accept that Our Hero, a man so pedantic his meet cute with Our Heroine involves him upbraiding her for incorrect astronomical facts, could possibly believe this alpine village with a pond ‘frozen nearly all year round’ and deep snow all winter is in England. It’s… Geography doesn’t work like that. Things that were notable and good about it: Our Heroine has a pretty significant specific phobia, which she does address throughout the novel, but she isn’t defined by it and she works on it rather than magically overcoming it. I think it’s fair to say Our Hero is not neurotypical either, but nor is he a stereotype.
