Spinsterhood has never looked so good, but unfortunately even that won’t save Lady Juliette Brooks. Her father’s arranged a betrothal for her to a brute of a man. She has one choice left—force the Duke of Kissinger to honor a long ago promise to save her.
Grayson Abbot, the Duke of Kissinger, does not want to marry Lady Juliette. He doesn’t want to marry anyone. But he did make her a promise, and he doesn’t go back on his word… So he reluctantly agrees to run away with her.
They set off on an adventure during the Christmastide season. As they race to Scotland they experience delays, cold weather, and a friendship they’d almost forgotten about. Will Juliette finally find out what it’s like to be kissed, and in return, win the duke’s heart?
This one is different from the others in the series and I absolutely loved it! What else is a lady to do when her father is set to marry her off to a horrible man, but seek out her childhood friend that now has a certain reputation? They were childhood friends that haven’t spoken in fifteen years, but he made a promise then and will keep it. I loved that they headed for Greta Green and the ceremony when the were married because of the details.
Juliette may seem like a quite girl that does what her father says, but it’s more of an act and she proves them wrong as soon as she runs away. I loved how she never backed down and knew Grayson better than himself. She is an amazing girl and one of my favorite heroines.
Grayson has done the opposite of what his father wanted since he sent him away to school, but deep down there is still a bit of the boy Juliette loved. I loved how he slowly put away his rogue persona. He is one of my favorite heroes.
I wish it was longer because I loved it so much. I hope her stepmother wasn’t so mean to have known how bad a man she pushed her to marry was. I was glad her father realized what could have happened to his daughter.
