Nita Good Book

Lately, I've been reading quite a bit a romance, mostly historical and paranormal with a little contemporary mixed in. I also enjoy fantasy, urban fantasy, and history.

All I Want For Christmas is a Duke - Delilah Marvelle, Maire Claremont This dualogy features two Christmas short stories. Delilah Marvelle's story, Merry Christmas, Mrs. Robinson, involves a secret admirer and a reunion. I loved the hero in this one. He's slightly younger than the heroine, a little lonely, and determined once he gets a sort of second chance with the heroine. I would've liked to have had the heroine's intimate insecurities explored a bit more. They seemed resolved a little too easily. Otherwise, it's a very sweet romance. 4 stars

The second story, The Twelve Days of Seduction by Màire Claremont had a really good beginning and end. The hero and heroine have a great physical connection. There is a lovely bond between the hero, the heroine, and the hero's young daughter. And it was nice seeing that bond strengthen throughout the story, especially between the hero and his child. But I think I needed more beyond the physical and the bond with the child to make the story more enjoyable for me. I needed more seduction. 3 stars
