As her fiery clergyman father chases away all suitors, Miss Ada Blair is resigned to spinsterhood. Yet while she can’t wed, bedding might be another matter. One man meets all her requirements for a discreet and expert pleasure tutor—Jasper Muir, Duke of Gilroy—but he insists on a very wicked contract…
Duke for Hire is a 34k word novella and was previously published in the anthology Duke I’d Like to F…
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Ada & Jasper’s perspectives.
This was a delightful, sexy, funny & erotic novella. My first experience with Nicola Davidson’s writing, but I’m definitely going to read more of her work.
While Ada is a virgin in search of a temporary lover, she is unreserved and has a lot of requests for her companion to fulfill. Jasper, as a Duke, is expected to marry and produce heirs. He has no interest in either one so finite flings suit him well… until he meets Ada.
I just adored how much fun these two had, both conversationally and sexually. A great match and despite the short amount of time together, I felt their HEA.
About the author:
USA Today bestselling author Nicola Davidson worked for many years in media and government communications, but hasn’t looked back since she decided writing erotic historical romance was infinitely more fun. When not chained to a computer, she can be found ambling along one of New Zealand’s beautiful beaches, cheering on the All Blacks rugby team, history geeking on the internet, or daydreaming. If this includes dessert—even better!
