Description from

Crispin, the Duke of Hurst, has never met a woman he couldn’t handle–until he’s hit over the head with a basketful of mistletoe by a young lady who mistakes his intentions. When he gets into a tussle with her–and she can hold her own–Crispin knows he has finally met his match.

Miss Gwen Prim is mortified that she attacked a duke, but even more concerning is the way her resolve melts when she’s near him. She’s never felt this way about a London gentleman in her life. And with the magic of Christmas in the air, she may end up with a proposal she didn’t expect…


Yes, this had a bit of holiday feeling since mistletoe and holly were mentioned. Yes, there is a handsome Duke and a beautiful maiden. No, there is nothing new in this story and it is beyond predictable.  Am I just becoming jaded by so much of the same in HR? If you want a quick, simple read during the holidays this one is not badly written just more of the same.
