A quick read with some of my favorites from last and current series by Jeffries. Foes that turn into lovers are always a favorite of mine.
***Twelve Kisses to Midnight by Karen Hawkins - loosely tied to the Oxenburg Princes series ***

It's his former fiancee, Lady Kenna Montrose. Scandal ensues and Kenna leaves the house party to get her father to "fix" things. Of course, Marcus follows her and he gets injured. Kenna luckily finds shelter, but they are forced to stay for several days while a winter storm passes.
Will their close proximity rekindle the love they once held for each other?
A wonderful, quick read! I always love a reunion story and Hawkins hit it out of the park. It also helped that Grand Duchess Natasha Nikolaevna was there to meddle!!

Another great read by one of my favorite authors. Mystery and romance...a perfect combination!
