    fantastic romance

    Dukes, Actually is the 5th book in the 12 Dukes of Christmas series by Erica Ridley. Ridley is one of my “go to” authors. Her stories have humor and heart pounding romance. I have especially enjoyed this Christmas series. Each story takes place in a wonderful little town called Cressmouth. In Cressmouth, the inhabitants celebrate Christmas all year round. Ridley has a talent for creating characters of depth and feeling. I loved the heroine Carole Quincy - she is the sunshine in the town. Adam Farland, the sixth Duke of Azureford was a little confusing at times, but I loved his shyness. He was a very relatable character. “He wasn’t holding back now. He was taking, demanding, giving, pleading. Two souls caught in a tug-of-war between we shouldn’t be doing this and I never want to stop.” Bravo Ms. Ridley! I was given a copy of this book.

    Wonderfully entertaining historical romance

    Imagine a shy and introverted Duke and an outgoing, flirtatious young miss striking a bargain to help the socially awkward lord come out of his shell and find an appropriate wife. DUKES, ACTUALLY by Erica Ridley is another quirky, yet charming tale filled with fun characters, a little romance and, as always, Ms. Ridley’s ability to pull it all together and leave her readers smiling! I received a complimentary ARC edition from Erica Ridley/WebMotion! This is my honest and voluntary review.

    Welcome to Christmas!

    The Duke of Azureford aka Adam has poor social skills. He is about as good at talking to people as I am aka almost hopeless. But he is lonely and wants a wife. He has a plan though. He plans to build a billiard room in his house in the small town called Christmas and work on his social skills with the local townspeople. Enter Carole. She is the opposite of Adam. She is friendly, funny, and gets along with everyone. When she offers to help Adam with his social skills and sparks start to fly between them. Maybe these two lonely people have found their match. I love both Adam and Carole. Both have great hearts and really care for others. They both want to do their duty but have found it a lonely road. I love how Carole has a very unusual hobby for a woman in the era. Carole loves math and architecture. I really connected with Carole over her mother’s death and wanting to take care of her father. I love opposites attract romance and this one was perfect. The friendship, respect, and love that grows between Carole and Adam in the book is everything you want in a romance. My one complaint is that I wish the epilogue was longer. This was the perfect Christmas read and can’t wait to read more books in this series. Rating: 5 stars Content: Adult *Thanks to NetGalley and Erica Ridley for giving me this copy to review. All opinions are my own.*

    I fell in love with them

    Even though the story has no particular tie to the Christmas season, it still manages to embody all the magic of the holiday. The most capable young woman in all England and the shy socially awkward Duke. On the surface, it doesn’t sound like a match made in heaven, but in the hands of this author that’s exactly what Adam and Carole’s story becomes. As the pair were falling in love with one another, I fell in love with them. I enjoyed reading this story so much and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through NetGalley.

    Adam & Carole prove friends make the best lovers.

    Adam knows he's supposed to marry someone "appropriate" to ensure the continuation of his title, yet his shyness has kept him from being able to make the rounds of the Marriage Mart to find a suitable match. Carole, still adrift from the loss of her mother as a young girl, is determined to remain single so she can focus on her devotion to her father and protect herself from future grief. These two embark on a mutually beneficial friendship, knowing from the start that there's no possibility of a future relationship. This story was so sweet, engaging, and instantly captivating. Both Adam and Carole are likable characters, and their blossoming feelings made for a beautifully understated romance. I really enjoyed the way they each brought out the best in each other. The heartwarming HEA was doubly satisfying as it resolved a secondary romance as well. I have loved each of these literary visits to this magical town, and highly recommend this book along with the entire series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
