Dashing Scot Jonathan MacLean never returns to the same town twice. The happy-go-lucky philanthropist seeks constant adventure… and is desperate to outrun his past. When a blizzard traps him in a tiny mountaintop village, he meets a woman who tempts him with dreams he'd long since abandoned: Home. Community. Love. But other people’s livelihoods depend on him leaving for good as soon as the snow melts.

Talented jeweler Angelica Parker has spent her life fighting for recognition. She's Black, she's a woman, and she will prove her creations are the equal to any artisan in England. With a contract anchoring her in place for seven years, she lands the project of a lifetime. There's no room for error—or distractions. Such as the charming drifter whose warm embrace and melting kisses have become more precious than jewels...

Welcome to a heartwarming series of fun 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!

One Night with a Duke by Erica Ridley

If I ever entertain going back in time, I want to go back to Erica Ridley’s Cressmouth where there are women who stand against the norm, make their own lives and deal with the consequences, if any! In this warm and heartfelt tale, Angelica, a gifted jeweler who bravely signed a contract that would control her life for seven years, she has made a name for herself, in spite of her race and the fact she is a woman. All was going well until Jonathan MacLean steps into her shop and her life, churning emotions she never dreamed of having time for.

Quirky, clownish, yet clearly intelligent, Jonathan is like a breath of fresh air coming on with hurricane force winds. What has driven this man to live the life of a good-hearted nomad? What dark secrets is he hiding?

Has love come to Cressmouth again when one least expects it? How can a woman firmly rooted in her livelihood and passion tame a footloose wanderer? How does the dashing wanderer bring a bit of adventure into the serious business woman’s life?

ONE NIGHT WITH A DUKE could be one of Erica Ridley’s best romances yet! Light-hearted at times, heart-melting at others, another fun read in the town where the magic of love abounds!

I received a complimentary ARC edition from WebMotion!
