The Ice Duchess by Tracy Sumner is a part of A Scandalous Christmas comprising 8 different stories from 8 different authors.
I have certainly become a huge fan of Tracy Sumner and her writing. The characters are lovable and as this story is centered around the very jolly and cheerful time of Christmas that embodies all things love, The Ice Duchess becomes even more sweet and delightful.
Dexter Reed Munro and Georgiana Whitcomb are childhood friends but ambition and passion for all things “fossil” have separated them for 7 yrs where in Georgie was forced into a marriage with an abusive older man. Dex’s return as heir to the Duke of Markham has opened his eyes about his worthy companion. But his task is a challenging as Georgiana has no desire to let go of her independence, thus begins the charming story of a man hell-bent on convincing his best friend about the pleasures of marriage.
Both Dex and Georgie are extremely fascinating characters and their love that comes to fruition on the Twelfth Night, the Feast of Epiphany, the official end of Christmastide was filled with light and feel good peppy moments. The sensual love between them was steamy and the chemistry brilliantly hot. It was exciting to see Dex with his craze of geology and asking Georgie to meet him at a museum was hilarious at best.
If you are looking for a historical romance book with Christmas background, this one perfectly fits the bill.
An independent countess. A forbidding duke. A tempestuous gamble on love.
Georgiana Whitcomb, Countess Winterbourne, is known as the Ice Countess for her rebellious ways and refusal to marry again. But a scandalous Christmas wager fashioned by Georgiana’s childhood obsession changes everything.
The demanding duke needs a bride…
Dexter Munro, mere days from becoming the Duke of Markham, made a promise to his dying father to find a wife by the Twelfth Night. Except the only woman he’s ever desired has vowed never to marry again. Not even to become his duchess.
Georgiana and Dex share a sizzling attraction and a wicked past…but is their scorching passion enough to melt the Ice Countess’ heart?
If you adore sexy Dukes, feisty Duchesses, and a steamy second-chance romance set in the magnificent Regency era, The Ice Duchess is the historical for you!
