Never Say Duke is the fourth book in the 12 Dukes of Christmas series. Healing and humor make this a warm sweet story. There are few very nice surprises. The characters are wonderful. Theo is handsome, courageous, honorable, and a little stubborn. Virginia is beautiful inside and out. She is kind and caring, if uncertain and a little fearful. They are both patient and understanding with each other. Swinton, the butler, and Duke, the cat, are the perfect pair to look after our hero and heroine. I loved this story and will try to wait patiently for the next book in this series. I recommend this book and the series to anyone who enjoys a happy story.
I almost forgot....This is a clean romance. Such a refreshing change from the “too much information” romances that are usually churned out.
Never Say Duke might just be my new favorite in Erica Ridley's 12 Dukes of Christmas series. I have loved the previous books, but the characters in this one are just so wonderful and the addition of a fiesty cat makes it perfect. Virginia is such a sweet and caring person. I love her love of animals and how she takes them in when they are injured. As the story of her past emerges, you can't help but feel heartbroken for her. When we first meet Theo, he is gruff, grumpy, and quick to push any help away, but beneath the gruff exterior, he hides a gentle, loving side he doesn't let anyone see.
I did receive an ARC of this book.
“Long kept in exile by paternal pride,
He feels no joy beneath this splendid dome;
For, till the elder child of promise died,
He knew a dearer, though a humbler home.”
The hero Theodore O’Hanlon, Major Viscount Ormondton is vulnerable and believable as a character. “She tried not to notice. He was distractingly handsome. The strong jaw, she suspected he shaved himself. Well-defined muscles from riding horses into battle and rolling his chair across thick carpets. He wore no cravat and one leg of his breeches had been sliced to the knee. The state of semi-undress made him seem at once more powerful and more vulnerable.”
I especially liked the heroine’s character Virginia Underwood. She is a mixture of strong independent woman and suffering, fearful miss. Virginia is a complex character. I love one of her lines “Scars aren’t evidence of failure,”she said softly. “They are proof of survival.”
The romance is sweet and not steamy.
I think Ridley has knocked this one out of the park. I am sure I will be reading it again and again.
