My Thoughts:
The Duke and Duchess Trap
Valerie Bowman

For those of you who grew up with The Parent Trap and loved that movie this is your story. In The Duke and Duchess Trap we have the regency version of The Parent Trap. However, we have a wily grandmother who is set on fixing her son and his duchess back together and she enlist the help of her granddaughters. Good thing they are twins. Super cute read. 

Sophie and the Duke
Tiffany Clare

If any of you know me, I can't stand Cinderella stories. They are one of my least favorite troupe, but Tiffany does a good job in Sophie and the Duke. Okay if you have seen the Disney version of Cinderella you will see similarities. However, the difference in this story Sophie and Adrian use to be childhood friends. Overall, adore Tiffany's take and Cinderella. 

The Duke's Christmas Wish 
Vivienne Lorret

In this story we encounter Northcliff Melchior Bromley, the Duke of Vale and he's out to prove his marriage formula, think of Match.com or eHarmony for this one. Basically, take in all this information to find a formula for the perfect match, but he doesn't take into fact of chemistry. He basically thrown under the bus when he finds his attraction for Ivy Sutherland. Even though this story is short and I have a feeling it's going to lead to future stories for other characters (keeping my fingers cross), it's a cute read. 

One Magic Season
Ashlyn Macnamara

In this one we find a chance love story between Lady Patience Markham, Dowager Countess of Worthington and Nathaniel Westlake, Duke of Kingsbury. We learn that Kingsbury fancied Patience, but was encouraged to seek another. Both of them are widows and maybe they might find love. I liked this one, because Kingsbury decided to stand up against his family and find love. 

Each of these stories features a Duke and getting one for Christmas. Each one is a sweet story with a happy ever after. Perfect for the holiday season. So, if you are in need for holiday cheer and romance with a Duke, you might consider All I Want for Christmas is a Duke anthology.
