The Twelve Days of Seduction

The Twelve Days of Seduction by Marie Claremont

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?

About the Author

2011 Golden Heart winner Máire Claremont first fell in love with Mr. Rochester, not Mr. Darcy. Drawn to his dark snark, she longed to find a tortured hero of her own… until she realized the ramifications of Mr. Rochester locking his frst wife up in his attic. Discovering the errors of her ways, Máire now looks for a real-life Darcy and creates deliciously dark heroes on the page. Oh, and she wants everyone to know her name is pronounced Moira. Her parents just had to give her an Irish Gaelic name

My Review

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. She lied because she wanted a job and she's going to fight to keep it because she loves her charge and wishes among all things for the duke and the child to be her family.

Lovely story that took no time at all to read. I enjoyed it very much.
