Twelve Drummers Drumming (The Twelve Days of Christmas Book 1)

Emily E. K. Murdoch

HISTORICAL: Captain Hugh Rotherham has come home from war, but he is nothing remotely like the man he was before he left. He is thrown when he sees Jemima Fitzroy, who is helping veterans returning from the war. Jemima is part of a family who don’t understand her and she puts her focus into her work with veterans. What neither of them expects is for their feelings to grow and become something more. Hugh wants to make sure that Jemima’s reputation remains intact, but it becomes increasingly difficult when his passion for her becomes almost too much to bear. Jemima also has to be careful what her family finds out, because if they find out she has been seeing a man unchaperoned, she will find herself in a perilous situation. 

Emily EK Murdoch has written a great little novella that can be read in one sitting. Jemima and Hugh are great characters that have a lot going on in their lives. Readers will be able to relate to them and enjoy going on the journey as they find love for one another. Fans of historical romance will love this offering, and it’s a great way to kill an hour or so. The tension between the characters is intense, and there is searing heat between them. “Twelve Drummers Drumming” is a great start to the series, and it will be exciting to read the other books to come. Download this to the e-reader and enjoy it with a nice cup of tea or favorite beverage.
