The Duke Alone by Christi Caldwell Review

The Duke Alone
By Christi Caldwell
Release Date: October 18th, 2022
Source: Kindle Unlimited

Lady Myrtle McQuoid has always felt a little forgotten, and this season is no exception. When her boisterous family vacates their London townhouse for the country, Myrtle finds she’s been left behind. But she just needs to stay warm, keep her belly full, and distract herself until her relatives realize their mistake and turn back to collect her. Surely that won’t take long.

Brooding widower Val Bancroft, the Duke of Aragon, has shut himself off from the world. He craves blessed solitude—a loyal dog, a silent house, and his own company are all he requires. Certainly not the nonstop chattering of the joyful, opinionated young woman next door.

But with a potential threat lurking in the winter shadows, Myrtle may need to pluck up the nerve to approach the reclusive duke. And Val is not one to turn his back on a vulnerable lady.

Amid the silent nights of London, beneath a blanket of snow, could the light of a new, warm love be kindling?

Christi Caldwell is back with another outstanding regency romance, but this time you can read it on Kindle Unlimited first if you have it.

There is nothing like being completely ignored by your own family, but that is exactly how Lady Myrtle McQuoid has always felt, after being banished off to finishing school, Myrtle was finally back with her family, but now all she wants is quiet, just to think, just to breath! especially as she was told that they wouldn't be staying in London this Christmas, but on the morning that they left, they left without Myrtle.

Val Bancroft, the Duke of Aragon is a widower, who has decided to shut himself off from the world after the loss of his wife, and even though he thought he was finally getting the quiet he wanted, the girl next door got abandoned by her family, and now he feels kind of responsible for Lady Myrtle, even though he rather wouldn't

I was thinking how could I possibly describe The Duke Alone… well it’s a mix of Home Alone and a Christmas Carol all rolled into a beautiful historical Romance and topped off with dog kisses!

I give The Duke Alone 5 stars

USA Today bestselling, RITA-nominated author Christi Caldwell blames authors Julie Garwood and Judith McNaught for luring her into the world of historical romance. When Christi was at the University of Connecticut, she began writing her own tales of love. She believes that most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections, and she rather enjoys torturing her couples before crafting them a well-deserved happily ever after.
