Book Review: Ten Days with a Duke by Erica Ridley

About the Book:

From a New York Times bestselling author: a second chances, enemies-while-lovers reunion romance where nothing is as it first appears, and everyone’s motives are suspect…

Olive Harper’s family has been feuding with the Westons for decades. The Westons’ stud farm is the biggest, but the Harpers’ is the most famous… and she’s the sole heiress. Or was, until her father brokers a truce by offering the Weston heir the Harper farm. The only way to get it back is to marry the knave who kissed her and humiliated her, twice—or prove to her father that some rifts can never be healed.

Scholar and botanist Elijah Weston is dreadful at feuding. For one, he prefers horticulture to horses. For two, he’s been desperately in love with his mortal enemy ever since he kissed her—and, yes, publicly destroyed her—all those years ago. When he’s given ten days to win Olive’s heart, he arrives with marriage license in hand. But where lies and double-crosses abound, how can lifelong rivals learn to trust their hearts?

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. Twelve delightful romances… and plenty of delicious dukes!

My Thoughts:

Ten Days with a Duke is a heart-warming romance with a strong, independent female character, Olivia and the hero, Elijah,  who prefers horticulture and has been in love with Olivia for years. Olivia is the heiress to the Harpers’ stud farm and quite capable with the horses. When she comes face to face with the person who stole her first kiss and humiliated her, she vows to get back at him even though she is now expected to marry him.

Elijah is a delight, strong, tall, handsome and brooding, he is caught up in his father’s plans and in trying to win Olivia’s heart. As the story progresses, our characters learn to let go of the past, find their own way and even to forgive finding love along the way.

This book is a pleasant and quick read set in the time of Christmas in a rather picturesque village! It is indeed the season of love!
