AN AFFAIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Genre: Historical Romance
James is brilliant. Her stories are dazzling, her characters intelligent, her multilayered plots complex, her dialogue witty and sophisticated, and her storytelling superb. In three unique plotlines she explores the aspects of love. This depth is why James is one of the finest writers of the genre: She makes you believe in love and miracles. She doesn't just write about one couple rekindling their love; she turns her attention to several couples. It's overwhelming, joyful, painful -- and James' novel is a masterpiece.
It's a new season for the Desperate Duchesses, and of course there's a scandal -- a duel between Jemma's brother and the Duke of Villiers. But there's more. Jemma, the Duchess of Beaumont, is reunited with Poppy, the Duchess of Fletcher.
