‘All I Want for Christmas Is a Duke’ Anthology

aiwfciad-vb-tcvl-amSTORY: The holidays are a time for dining, dancing, and of course—dukes! Celebrate the Christmas season with this enchanting collection of historical romances featuring the most eligible bachelors of the ton

A childish prank may have reunited the Duke of Hollingsworth with his estranged wife, but only the magic of Christmas will show this couple ’tis the season of second chances…

Sophie Kinsley planned to remain a wallflower at the Duke of Hollyshire’s ball. Yet when a dance with him leads to a stolen kiss, will the duke be willing to let her go? Or will Sophie’s Christmas wish be granted at last?

To the Duke of Vale, science solves everything—even marriage. When the impulsive Ivy Sutherland makes him question all of his data, he realizes that he’s overlooked a vital component in his search for the perfect match: love.

Patience Markham never forgot the fateful dance she had with the future Duke of Kingsbury. But when a twist of fate brings them together for Christmas Eve, will the stars finally align in their favor?

REVIEW: First, all four are short, sweet and lighthearted stories.

Naturally, I loved some more than the others, but all in all, I was happy while reading them. Be warned though, these are very short stories, but all will give you a fair taste of the authors that have written them.

The Duke & Duchess Trap by Valerie Bowman.

If you’ve never seen the original “Parent Trap” movie, than you’re in for a treat. To this day, that is one of my all time favorite stories. This was a fun and entertaining story by an author I like a lot.

Sophie and the Duke by Tiffany Clare

Who doesn’t like a “Cinderella” inspired story? Show me that person and I’ll call them out! In this retelling of the fairy tale, romance is between two childhood friends and it was sweet and memorable.

The Duke’s Christmas Wish by Vivienne Lorret

Believe it or not, I never read “Princess and the Frog”, but I did hear about it so this tale was, at least to me, fresh and interesting. I truly loved this couple because both were unique and just too damn fun!

One Magic Season by Ashlyn Macnamara

In the last story, we have a wonderful story of second chances. It really was a sweet and tender story that you’ll probably relate to.

This collection of Christmas tales is a great way to sample these four wonderful authors and I recommend it with enthusiasm.
