review ´ Christmas with the Duchess 104 Nicholas St Austell's Christmas Wish List An invitation to a holiday house party A shiny gol. Received read and reviewed for The Season for RomanceEmma Fitroy Duchess of Warwick is staying at Warwick Palace for the Christmas holiday where she hopes to be reunited with her two young sons who were taken away after her husband s death As family begins to arrive she meets Nicholas St Austell the newly appointed Lord Camford Ten years her junior Emma certainly has no intentions of getting romantically involved with Nicholas Nicholas just recently came into the earldom after having spent most of his life at sea as a naval officer Orphaned at a young age the Royal Navy is the only home he has known so he is very apprehensive about his newly acuired title property and family members He is taken under the protection of Uncle Hugh whom he uickly learns is not so benevolent and actually has ulterior motives Uncle Hugh wants Nicholas to marry one of his five marriage hungry daughters and make one of them the next Lady Camford Nicholas is completely blind to his uncle s schemes especially when he meets the beautiful Emma He uickly falls under her spell although no one not even the reader understands why I really wanted to like Christmas with the Duchess but sadly that did not happen for me Other than the novel taking place over the course of three Christmases there isn t any Christmas spirit or cheer in this story It plays out as of a Regency farce than a romanceAs for our main characters we have role reversal with the heroine being the older slightly jaded seemingly rakish woman and the hero being boy than man with his naivet and lack of experience both sexually and socially Unfortunately I felt no connection or attachment to any of the characters I found Emma to be manipulative conniving self centered and sometimes cruel Nicholas one of the few characters with any redeeming ualities was kind hearted and sweet but far too innocent and awkward The rest of the family was just as catty manipulative and self serving as the heroine so Nicholas inability to fit in with the rest of the characters made sense although I felt the author made him seem like a simpleton most of the time The premise of the story seemed to have a lot of promise and the plot although not entirely original could have been far interesting if the story hadn t been so convoluted with a cast of horrid and mostly useless characters On a positive note the writing was well done and there were a few humorous moments that lightened the tension a bit Sadly this is not a story for those seeking some holiday cheer but rather those who are not looking for a warm and fuzzies and who don t mind being entertained yet annoyed at the same time
