One Winter with a Baron (The Heart of a Duke Book 12) by Christi Caldwell is another heartwarming and uplifting Regency Romance. While, Book 12, it can be read as a stand alone. A quick read, only approximately 122 pages. But with a lot of WOW moments! Perfect for a cold winter’s night.

This is the story of….
Miss Sybil Cunning, a spinter bluestocking, who enjoys data and her research. Nolan Pratt, Baron Webb, a notorious, cold-hearted rake, one who Sybil needs to help with her research.
But can research turn into a forever kind of love and a HEA?

Steady paced, magnificently written with characters who are engaging, intriguing and most definitely unusual, but lovable. Such a uplifting story!

Ms. Caldwell is one of my favorite Regency authors and never disappoints but intrigues the reader from the beginning to the end of her stories. While, a quick read, “One Winter with a Baron”, is a story of hope, beauty, the magic of love, and how opposites attract. Brilliant! Another story that will endure for ages to come! What a thrill to read! Fans of Regency Romance, characters of different lifestyles coming together for one unforgettable winter, will absolutely adore this quick read! I was thoroughly captivated! Well done, Ms. Caldwell! A definite must read!

Lieutenant Lucien Jones, son of a viscount, returned from war, to find his wife and child dead. Blaming his father for the commission that sent him off to fight Boney’s forces, he was content to languish at London Hospital… until offered employment on the Marquess of Drake’s staff. Through his position, Lucien found purpose in life and is content to keep his past buried.

Lady Eloise Yardley has loved Lucien since they were children. Having long ago given up on the dream of him, she married another. Years later, she is a young, lonely widow who does not fit in with the ton. When Lucien’s family enlists her aid to reunite father and son, she leaps at the opportunity to not only aid her former friend, but to also escape London.

Lucien doesn’t know what scheme Eloise has concocted, but knowing her as he does, when she pays a visit to his employer, he knows she’s up to something. The last thing he wants is the temptation that this new, older, mature Eloise presents; a tantalizing reminder of happier times and peace.

Yet Eloise is determined to win Lucien’s love once and for all…if only Lucien can set aside the pain of his past and risk all on a lady’s heart.
