Peek Inside The Twelve Days of Seduction

Alexander Hunt, Eighth Duke of Berresford, is aware his ward’s governess misrepresented herself to gain employment, and he’s quite displeased, even if she is one of the most intelligent women’s he’s ever met. His ward deserves a reputable governess, so he threatens to give Adriana the sack mere days before Christmas.Desperate to convince the sexy duke not to tear her from the little girl she’s grown to adore, Adriana challenges him to prove she’s not the reputable governess he believed he hired. If he can seduce her before the Twelve Days of Christmas have come to an end, she will leave without protest. But when they find the challenge more difficult than either imagined, can they face the consequences of their decisions?

Short but sweet romance between a duke and his governess. I loved how well Maire Claremont showed Alexander and Adriana getting to know each other. There is plenty of steam, but it never overtakes the emotional side. I really wish this had been fleshed out to a full-length novel, but I enjoyed it... ...more

All right I'm such a dork, because I have been looking at this title for a couple of days trying to figure out why it was so familiar. Then it dawned on me, it was actually in an anthology called All I Want for Christmas is a Duke. I actually do have this anthology, but... ...more

4.5★

The Twelve Days of Seduction is a nearly perfect novella. Why nearly? Because I needed it to be longer, or even a full length novel! The duke's seduction of his governess was over far too quickly. It was delicious, tortuous, and should have been dragged out... ...more

For a very short-one, I really enjoyed reading this one. You got the plot, easy to understand and it didn't feel too fast. And you also got the chemistry between those two. This is the kind of short story I might re-read. Sweet but hot enough to fill the fantasy. :D
After reading this one, I reali... ...more

Hell bent on kicking her out for her lies, Alexander Hunt wants to know why she lied. Maybe even get a little bit out of it, like a mistress.

It was a very smart book. I'm not much a fan of historical novel or novellas.Sometimes I'm reading historical books if title is interesting or the subject is very clever... In this book both of them.
