    quick and whimsical

    Penelope just wants to have her work recognized by the scientific community. But when she decides on a lark to sell her latest experiment as a men's cologne, it becomes a sensation across the entire country. Penelope is dismayed that her discovery is celebrated for its popularity as a perfume, rather than for its scientific significance. She has inadvertently been helping people find mates and fall in love, supposedly thanks to her perfume, which she believes to be preposterous since there is no such thing as love. Nicholas is a confirmed rake and very much annoyed that this new perfume is leveling the playing field a bit; he is proud of his accomplishments as a rake and sees using the allure of the perfume as cutting corners and a flagrant and dishonorable deception. Unlike the men who swear by the perfume, Nicholas has no interest in a permanent mate; he has no desire to ever marry but prefers spending just the one night with his partners. He is happy to provide a good time, but no commitments, and a 36 he has done a fine job of avoiding them, and he certainly doesn't believe in love. At 34, Penelope is a confirmed spinster with no use for emotions; she just wants to test out her new perfume, one designed for women's use. Her new formula seems to be working just fine in her trials with Nick, leading her to be upset that he is only interested in spending time with her because of the perfume's effects. Little does she know, Penelope has turned Nick's world upside down and has him considering abandoning his rakish reputation entirely, except he believes her to only be interested in one night. When Penelope begins to question her beliefs on love and relationships, she decides she must avoid Nick to ensure the perfume's effects wear off,even if it will break her heart. When Nick learns that he was used as an experiment test subject, he is angry and hurt, and Penelope finally begins to consider that Nick's feelings could be genuine, it may be too late. I liked this one a lot more than the first one in this series. This is an entertaining, quick read if you can appreciate some whimsy, many cheesy Christmas references, and even a reference to a Killers song. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley. Thank you! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    fast paced, very enjoyable 200page novella with ve

    Penelope becomes semi-famous after she invented a perfume for men that makes women fall all over them. When infamous rake Nick meets her by chance he tries to buy the formula from her to stop production, as he is personally insulted that, with the help of this perfume, any man can be a rake like him. Penelope, a spinster by choice who does not believe in love but only chemistry, finds him to be a good guinea pig to test her new perfume, the version for women that makes men swoon. If the rake falls for the spinster, the formula works – doesn’t it? This was a fast paced, very enjoyable 200page novella with very likeable, fun characters. Definitely one of my favorites by Erica Ridley.

    I had so much fun with this story

    I had so much fun with this story. This was a quick light read that takes us a little deeper into the town of Cressmouth (otherwise known as Christmas) and introduces us to yet another of the ‘Dukes’ in Christmas. It’s much lighter than the previous one in the series, with significantly less emotional turmoil. There’s still a healthy dose of angst, though, as Penelope and Nicholas try to prove there’s no such thing as love in their lives. There’s also lots of silly, funny moments that occasionally left me gasping for breath. I can’t wait to read Christopher’s story now. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through NetGalley.

    A Fun Read

    I really enjoyed this book in the series! I love how strong Penelope is, I enjoyed the banter her and Nick had throughout the book. It was a lot of fun to read. I was given an advanced copy so I could volunteer my honest review. I do recommend this book, I recommend the whole series so far!

    romance

    Penelope Michell has created a fragrance that has women swooning when men wear it. The scent has leveled the playing field so that women are able to get to know men who might otherwise be overlooked. There is one man who is not happy with this because he, a rake of renown, has found the competition increased and feels it is not fair for these men to have it so easy…pot calling the kettle black, perhaps? So, Nicholas Pringle sometimes referred to as St. Nick is out to remove Duke, eau de toilette for men, from the market any way he can and THAT means getting close to Penelope. What a delightful story of two people getting to know one another. They find out so much about one another that has been somewhat hidden, are wonderful together and certainly deserve their happily ever after! I had no idea how one could have 12 Dukes of Christmas when I heard about the series but am thoroughly enjoying each story as another Duke is revealed. Thank you to NetGalley and the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
