Beautiful story! Is there a story for Chloe Edgerton, Primly, or Gillian Farendale?
One Winter with a Baron (The Heart of a Duke Book 12) by Christi Caldwell is another heartwarming and uplifting Regency Romance. While, Book 12, it can be read as a stand alone. A quick read, only approximately 122 pages. But with a lot of WOW moments! Perfect for a cold winter's night. This is the story of.... Miss Sybil Cunning, a spinter bluestocking, who enjoys data and her research. Nolan Pratt, Baron Webb, a notorious, cold-hearted rake, one who Sybil needs to help with her research. But can research turn into a forever kind of love and a HEA? Steady paced, magnificently written with characters who are engaging, intriguing and most definitely unusual, but lovable. Such a uplifting story! Ms. Caldwell is one of my favorite Regency authors and never disappoints but intrigues the reader from the beginning to the end of her stories. While, a quick read, "One Winter with a Baron", is a story of hope, beauty, the magic of love, and how opposites attract. Brilliant! Another story that will endure for ages to come! What a thrill to read! Fans of Regency Romance, characters of different lifestyles coming together for one unforgettable winter, will absolutely adore this quick read! I was thoroughly captivated! Well done, Ms. Caldwell! A definite must read! I received a complimentary copy Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR
One Winter with a Baron by Christi Caldwell is an amazing historical romance. This is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited time for reading. It's also a clean read and appropriate for teens and adults. Ms Caldwell has once again delivered a well written book with fantastic, lovable characters. Sybil and Nolan's story is filled with enough drama and humor to keep the pages turning. I enjoyed reading One Winter with a Baron and look forward to my next book by Christi Caldwell. One Winter with a Baron is book 12 of The Heart Of A Duke Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
