    easy going romance, entertaining holiday read

    Noelle and Benjamin exchanged one kiss years ago, and then he left. However, when he returns two years later both realize that their love never ceased, but both have a life they can not abandon for each other. How sadly hopeless. Of course, there is a Happy Ending in sight - just how? This was an easy going romance, not as "laugh-out-loud" funny as advertised, but still an entertaining holiday read. It could have done with a few less references to Christmas - the joke of mixing up the holiday with the towns name got fairly old fairly quickly. And why the deceased father's will was worded as it was would have been a nice, yet missing, revelation.

    Charming, and funny, and utterly irreverent

    Before you crack open this book, have the tissues handy. I’m probably admitting to being a giant ball of marshmallow fluff, but this story made me bawl like baby – full out ugly crying. The circumstances that separated and have kept Benjamin and Noelle apart are completely tragic. (See the note about ugly crying above.) The village of Christmas/Cressmouth is charming, and funny, and utterly irreverent as it and all its residents work their magic to bring this star-crossed pair back together. I can’t wait to see which of the unique characters make return engagements in future books. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

    Wonderful Scrooge-inspired romance!

    This is set in January, so it's definitely NOT a Christmas story. At least that's what Benjamin keeps telling himself, and anyone who will listen. But in the lovely remote town of Cressmouth, Christmas is a perpetual state of mind, all thanks to Bejamin's grandfather, whose recent passing draws Benjamin out of his London duties and far outside his comfort zone. He's determined to recover his mother's locket, and equally determined to avoid any personal entanglements that might delay his immediate return to London. Awww, but with such a setup, how can we not enjoy every single one of the unforeseen delays that keep him on his toes? The most delightful delay is, of course, the highly-competent Noelle, a very grown-up version of the girl he left behind years before. Noelle challenges him and surprises him all while trying to keep her heart safely tucked away so she doesn't fall for him again. The emotions run high in this beautiful story of love and loss, and what makes a family. It's not just a romance between the dapper Duke of Silkridge and the lovely Noelle, it's also a love story between the reader and the slightly eccentric but warm-hearted residents of Christmas, making us all feel included in the very happy ending.

    Once upon a duke

    Noelle has always felt she wasn’t enough. Shes afraid of being abandoned again,so she makes herself very useful. Benjamin is afraid of attachment and love. He has had great loss in his life. Both thinking they are safe from heartache if they don’t give up on the way of life they know. When they are brought together again fate has other ideas.

    I recommend this book

    I think this is going to be an amazing series! I loved this book and look forward to reading the other 11 dukes’ stories. I loved all the references to Dickens’ novella ‘A Christmas Carol’ even though this story takes place in regency times, a few decades before Dickens wrote his book. A fun book, I definitely recommend it. I was gifted an advanced copy so I could voluntarily offer my honest review.
