Historical Romance Review: The Twelve Days of Seduction by Maire Claremont

Title: The Twelve Days of Seduction
Author: Maire Claremont
Source: Entangled Flaunt
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: Novella
Release Date: December 30, 2013

Rating: 3 - Liked this one. Swap it when you're done
Sexual: 3 - Flames.  Hot with sexy details.  R rating.


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?
My Review:
Adriana has a quite a few secrets about her past - a past she wants to leave behind and live as a governess in Alexander Hunt's household.  But Alexander has found out her secret and is threatening to throw her out into the snow - and right before Christmas.  He's willing to compromise and let her be his mistress instead though (how generous).

While he sounds a bit like an old fashioned pig, he really is a very good guy that wants to keep Adriana in his life, even if she isn't suitable for employment as a governess.  They begin a little game and it gets quite interesting.  Adriana has quite a mouth on her when she has an important opinion and she's astonished when Alexander actually backs her up on many of them.

This was a very sweet holiday story and I loved the Christmas scene with everyone opening presents.  It really let you see into their personalities.
