Really enjoyed this Christmas novella and its take on A Christmas Carol. If you go along with the fantasy you will really like it.
Donovan Ellis has a heavy, saddened heart and Christmas time is most depressing for him. The Duke lost his true love years ago and he just wants to be left in his misery. Enter The Duke of Christmas Past. Donovan himself from all those years ago.
The exchanges between Donovan and the past Duke are very humorous at times. Unique also was that the story is told through Donovan's eyes as the years are relived.
I shall read this novella every year, just like I watch A Christmas Carol every year and greatly enjoy it. You will too!

Clever take-off on Charles Dickens, and the man himself gets a cameo mention. This is a fun paranormal time-travel twist on the traditional Regency (say that three times fast), and the Regency plotline is sufficiently traditional that the paranormal bits don't bother this historian. Love it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

LOVED LOVED LOVED! I can't say enough about this book. The author weaves a heartwrenching, heartwarming story of lost love and second chances. And the time-travel was an amazing addition. My only complaint would be that the book was too short. I wanted to keep reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a sweet Regency with a new and unusual paranormal element that I've never found in another story of any kind. I won't spoil what it is, but it did cause me a bit of confusion with point of view a few times, as some portions of the text weren't as seamless in identifying who was providing the dialogue and action right away. I did have to re-read some passages twice, but I did enjoy the story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
