Wish Upon a Duke by Erica Ridley

Rumor has it, charming adventurer Christopher Pringle is finally ready to settle down. He’s searching for a free-spirited bride to join him on his travels. But when the matchmaker he hires turns out to be the woman he had a public spat with the day before, nothing goes as planned!

Miss Gloria Godwin loves exploring the world… from the safety of a book. She detests her dashing client’s attempts to force her from her comfort zone. It should be easy to marry off the handsome heir to a dukedom. But the more she tries to match him to other women, the harder it gets to say goodbye

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a laugh-out-loud historical romance series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!

If you’re in the mood for a lighthearted, fun, Regency Christmas romp then you’ll want to check out the 12 Dukes of Christmas series by Erica Ridley this holiday season (or any time of the year).  Ms. Ridley always delivers a spunky, sexy, love story and Wish Upon A Duke is further proof of that.

Could there possibly be two people who are more opposite than Gloria and Christopher?  One wants the life of adventure and travel, the other also loves experiencing new things, but they travel through their imagination and good books.  Each has a very real reason for why they want to keep their life style intact… and both were embroiled in a heated argument the night before they officially met.  Sounds like oil and water, right?  Just wait, love will find a way.

Wish Upon A Duke is a quick read, but one that will easily draw you into the romantic antics of two people who would be perfect for each other… it they each were willing to take a chance.  I had such fun with this story, and I’ve no doubt that if you love a good Regency Romp that you will be caught up in Gloria and Christopher’s romance as well.  I would recommend this story or entire series to any reader who loves Historical or Regency Romance, the magic of the Christmas season, laughing out loud and interesting characters who live by their own design not by convention.
