Christmas Book Review: Duke, Actually

Sequel to A Princess for Christmas 

With Princess Marie breaking off their engagement to marry a man she loves, Baron Maximillian Von Hansburg's family is pressuring him to marry. But they want him to marry the "right' sort of women. He's not interested in getting married - especially to someone of their choosing. 

While he's in New York for a party (meeting a prospective bride), Max calls up Dani. Dani's different from other women - she's not interested in him, she's not interested in his title, and she doesn't swoon in front of him. Clearly they are meant to be friends.

Max accompanies her to a work party where they run into her dreaded ex. Dani's thankful for Max's presence, both as support and making her look good. They begin texting and calling each other. Could their easy friendship turn into something more?
My Thoughts: I loved this friends to lovers romance. I loved the friendship, the banter, the job discussions, Max the dog, and the support for each other. I felt terrible for both characters and what they've got through previously. I loved Max's brother Sebastian. The Love, Actually discussion and the Dirty Dancing Lifts were both entertaining. Delightful!

Cover Thoughts: Cute
