Lady Jane left her life behind to follow her dreams and after years away she has finally returned home. Although life is not the same as it was before she left one thing remains the same, her heart is still broken and her best friend Martin Nicholas Pierce, the Sixth Duke of Somerset, can still bring her joy. Unfortunately, Martin Nicholas Pierce, the Sixth Duke of Somerset, is tired of being placed in the friend zone. He has tried to secretly tell her exactly how he felt and it has ended horribly for him and everyone involved. Martin knows that he has to go hard or go home when it comes to winning Jane's heart. Can he make Jane accept the best Christmas gift he has to offer...his heart? Read and find out! I received this book as an ARC from Net Galley for my honest review I want to start by saying that Delilah Marvelle did a great job not only with this book but with this series! Jane's heart has been broken, she has been tricked by someone she thought she could trust and now she is broke, alone and down on her luck. Luckily for her Martin refuses to give up not only on her but on their chance of having one of the greatest loves of all time. Overall this is a great book for a great price. It is a short and surprisingly very sweet romance that will have you wishing for your own true love to come knocking on your door! Great job Marvelle you always find a way to touch my heart.

Originally published in the All I Want for Christmas is Duke anthology. Lady Jane left the ton behind to enjoy life on the stage. Receiving letters from Mr. X, she thinks she has found her soulmate. When Mr X reveals himself, they are soon married. But weeks into the marriage, Jane finds out the truth... the man she married is not her Mr. X. Tragedy strikes that same night when Jane is made a widow. After her disastrous marriage, she find herself living a simple life away from the public. Martin Nicholas Pierce, the Duke of Somerset, has been in love with Jane for years. He is the true Mr. X. When they have a chance encounter, Martin decides to do whatever he must to win Jane's heart. What will Jane do when she learns the true identity of her Mr. X? This was an enjoyable, quick read. The attraction between Jane and Martin practically jumped off the page. The story line was a nice change in pace. Martin falls in love with Jane when he was just 17. Much too young for a woman of 22. But when they meet again , the age difference doesn't matter. It also gave Martin the time that he needed to grow into the man that he was out from under his father's thumb. A must read on a cold, winter night!

This novella was originally published in the "All I Want for Christmas is a Duke" anthology. I love that it is being re-released as a stand-alone. Jane Robinson wanted to be an opera singer, but as the daughter of the Earl of Chadwick that was an unrealistic dream. She befriended the quiet Martin Pierce, heir to the Duke of Somerset who encouraged her to reach for her dreams. When Jane left, her father disowned her. Jane became the toast of London. When her mystery admirer became public knowledge, Jane marries man that proves to her that he is her Mister X. However, her new husband isn't who he claims to be. Forward eight years. Jane is living in poverty and Martin is the Duke of Somerset. Martin has just discovered a great aunt that was disowned years ago and she lives in the same building as Jane. This is one of my favorite novellas. I love the chemistry between Jane and Martin and they were able to pick their friendship up where they left off. Normally, I am not a big fan of novellas because there isn't great character development. This novella had wonderful character development. I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

Lady Jane followed the advice of her best friend and left her family to become a singer on stage. But soon her life is in shambles. Her father disowned her, her secret admirer vanished, her husband lied to her, and her best friend left her. Now she's managing on her own. But an aunt with a matchmaking bent and a Christmas wish bring her back in touch with her best friend. And sometimes best friends can make your Christmas wishes come true. I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet, romantic, and had all the right elements for a regency novella. The characters were well developed for the length of the story, the plot was typical regency romance. The book cover cracked me up. It could have been a bit less dramatic. But overall, this was a fun story that I enjoyed reading. I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

To make matters worse, she madly falls in love, with a mysterious charming man, who corresponds with her and decides to marry him. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the man he pretended to be, and it all ended in disaster. Now, a young widow, she doesn’t want to take the chance of loving again. Enters back in her life, Martin, who is more than determined to catch her heart. Will he get a second chance? Will she take that chance? I love Delilah Marvelle’s books, this short novella is perfect for an afternoon read! It’s so romantic!
