    I love these novella collections because even though they have the same theme each story is so different I like being introduced to new to me authors and getting a taste of what their writing style is like And I can always count on my favorite authors to deliver stories that make me smile I especially enjoyed the ones by Sarah Eden Donna Hatch and Heather Moore in this collection


  5. Tweety Tweety says:

    It's probably not fair of me to rate this since I only really read the first book by Sarah M Eden I love Eden's works so I decided to pick this up and see if maybe I'd find a few new authors I'd enjoy reading books by The first story is sweet clean and enjoyable The hero may have been irritatingly blind but I still liked him for his consideration and humility in admitting fault The heroine and he both had a good relationship and I liked that they could tell each other anything Except of course they couldn't tell each other when they were being idiots Not Eden's wittiest but that's fine since she took this book in a different track to the others in this collection Set in Ireland after the potato famine and the main characters are both common people And better their romance was over several months of close contact I skimmed or skipped the rest for various reasons In my skimmings I couldn't help but notice that the hero was always tall handsome and Wait for it desperately in love at the first sighting of the heroine I'm not saying people don't fall in love at first sight some do But this was ridiculous And another thing if the heroheroine had been crossed in love they always fell in love with the opposite of their first sigh I should never read new books when I'm sick I just pick them apart too much Apologies to all who think this book good and who enjoy this genre The one story I really liked the beginning of sorry I don't know the name of it was rather Gothic but since it had a curse in it i didn't feel comfortable reading it The other stories are I'm sure just what the romance reader wants I just didn't dig it Note expect Tall handsome heroes and prettyplain heroines with spunk and in some characters a bad case of naivety One girl falls for a Rake even though she has been warned and then once she sees for herself what he is promptly falls out of love with him and into love with the first handsome dark stranger she meets There's a lesson well learnt Thankfully this one was perfectly respectable and they were engaged within two days Please don't see that as a spoiler we all know the heroheroine with be engaged uickly in a short story PG Perfectly clean with a few kisses and mention of some characters philandering

    e book freebie for signing up for their newsletterThis collection features winterChristmas themed romance stories throughout history from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century The characters hail from Ireland the United States and England The Road to Cavan Town by Sarah M Eden In 1864 the roads to Cavan Town County Cavan Ireland feature a number of young bachelors headed to lake country to court the belle of the county each hoping for a single word from the beauty Alice Whatley is no beauty but she knows she would make Isaac Dancy a better wife than Miss Sophia Kilchrest Alice is used to the hard work of life in service and caring for her aging relatives Traveling back and forth she's gotten to know Isaac very well He owns a good farm that survived the Great Hunger and he hopes to proper Isaac is proud of his farm and doing the backbreaking labor himself He seeks a wife who will help connect him with the community and unite everyone with smiles and good grace Alice wonders how he can expect a fine lady like Miss Kilchrest to give up her fancy house with servants and move to a farm How can Alice convince Isaac that she is the one for him?This is a cute story and I liked it best of all the stories in this collection Alice is practical not a beauty; she's intelligent and though she's in love she's not lovesick She knows her limits of friendship and how much she's willing to accept Alice won't give in to anything except true love Isaac is a wonderful hero though completely blind to Alice as anything other than a friend Like Edmund Bertram in Mansfield Park he sees a pretty face and elegant facade and thinks he's in love Sophia doesn't deserve him The introduction of Billy was a little bit too much of a plot device for me He didn't uite fit the story but serves to show the characters of both women The final courtship scene is so adorable I dare you not to smileIt Happened Twelfth Night by Heidi Ashworth Luisa is eager to be reunited with her childhood sweetheart Percy after his trip abroad Their summer kisses were so delicious and Luisa has waited for the promise of Somehow they will convince his noble parents that the daughter of their gatekeeper will make an excellent wife for their son Months later Luisa slips into Percy's family's Twelfth Night ball eager to be alone with her love at last Instead she finds her heart broken and loses her way in the servants uarters If found it will lower her reputation even further than it already has With the help of a mysterious stranger she finds her way out of her difficult situationHmmm I'm not entirely crazy about this story On one hand it takes place all in one night and I don't buy that timeline as a true love story However I did enjoy the details about the Mummers and the Twelfth Night activities in the Regency period Luisa is no longer young and longs for romance and adventure I can see why she falls in love but will it last? The mysterious man was a bit of a surprise and my instincts were telling me to run and not give in to chivalry Is it real? Both Luisa's men lie to her for different reasons If this story had a longer timeline and an epilogue it might appeal to me Un Unexpected Proposal by Annette Lyon takes place in the wilds of Utah in 1880 Caroline is working as a maid in a logging camp to earn money to help her younger sister who is ill with a form of tuberculosis Caroline doesn't mind the work except for serving the evening meal when that awful Butch Larson makes every attempt to touch her inappropriately against her will Her boss Mrs Hansen doesn't uite believe Caroline but her childhood chum James does and worries about her James is ready to challenge Butch despite Butch being a relative of the Hansens who run the camp Caroline doesn't feel this chivalry is necessary It's not Jamie's place to protect her and it never will be She dreams of being swept off her feet by a handsome roguish man who will dance with her all night When winter comes Caroline discovers some unexpected things about her own heart but it may be too lateI liked this story the least First in a clean and secular collection this story doesn't fit the criteria exactly It's Little House on the Prairie Mormon style with a #MeToo plot driving the romance There's no overt preaching but it's mentioned the men read the Scriptures in the evening and Caroline doesn't even know what alcohol smells like pointing out the characters come from a religious community The sexual harassment plot was a surprise and out of place in this otherwise light and fluffy anthology The romance wrapped up uickly and sweetly but the rest of the story is a dud I felt sorry for Caroline that she was being harassed and that was about the extent of my feelings for her I liked Jamie much better He's kind caring sweet and a hard worker What's not to love in the wild west? Really I would marry him She doesn't have a lot of other options I would recommend skipping this story if you prefer your romances fluffyCarols on the Lawn by Joyce DiPastena is unlike any other romance I've ever read It's set in 1151 in England at Christmastime early on in the history of Christmas celebrations The heroine Isabel and her sister Agnes are daughter of a Lord who has invited a number of knights and ladies to celebrate the Christmas season with them Isabel has promised to choose a husband before the guests leave One man is the same as the other as far as she's concerned The one she will NOT marry is Lucian de Warrene His kisses were divine but he is too controlling too strong for Isabel She is determined to rule her husband as she has ruled her father these many years When she receives a ring mysteriously from an anonymous suitor she vows to marry whoever sent the ring First though she must figure out who sent it and how much she can control him I really liked this story than I thought I would mostly for the Christmas traditions I had no idea Christmas carols were originally dances The Holly and the Ivy is featured in this story and learning about the development of the dance is fascinating The mystery sucked me in too I could relate very much to headstrong Isabel She isn't much of a medieval maiden though Isabel has a uick temper is stubborn and incredibly strong willed I didn't like how she wanted to rule her husband Why not an eual partner? Agnes is sweet but she too seems to want some control over her husband Agnes would like to be allowed to do the accounts Isabel's reasons for being the way she is are valid and I understand why but she is a little too annoyingly stubborn even for me The gentlemen are not all that appealing Sir Theo is kind and chivalrous but not too bright so he is a good candidate for husband material I wouldn't want to marry him just to rule him He's nothing but kind Sir Eustace on the other hand is a dandy and possibly a medieval rake I don't trust him Sir Tristan is the male version of Isabel He is a manly man strong brave tough and really proud Their sparks are a bit too mean to be delightful The only other woman in the story is a spoiled beauty stereotype with no original personality traits I do recommend this story for the original setting and historical details A Winter's Night by Donna Hatch In 1813 England Clarissa Fairchild is on her way home to celebrate Christmas with her family As she passes the legendary Wyckburg Castle she can't help but imagine the terrifying lords who were said to have murdered their wives How delicious If only she could meet a murderous Earl Dun dun dun A carriage accident in a snowstorm may grant Clarissa her wishClarissa is of a similar type to Jane Austen's Catherine Morland Clarissa is young with a head full of silly gothic novels She thinks the fantasy is appealing than the reality of the dull suitors she's met in London Clarissa is a bit mature than Catherine She doesn't let her imagination rule her mind When she discovers the reality of the situation she is compassionate and kind While I keep saying I hate brooding heroes I guess I do like them because Christopher de Champs Early of Wyckburg is a sympathetic hero He's led a tragic life which causes his brooding He's not cruel like Mr Rochester or Heathcliff though Christopher is understanding yet resigned to his terrible fate I wasn't thrilled with the silly reason for that fate but it could just be a coincidence The insta love is a bit too much but I can see why they both fall in love with what they know about one another The epilogue satisfied my curiosity I liked this story a lot A Fortunate Exile by Heather B Moore In New York City in 1901 a lady should never cause a scandal What will the papers say? Lila Townsend has done just that by getting caught in an unseemly position with her neighbor Roland a bachelor Lila's father is outraged and forces her into exile on her Aunt Eugenia's farm Aunt Eugenia is old a religious fanatic and cheap or has money troubles which one would never admit Lila is miserable The only bright spot in her life is Aunt Eugenia's young distant cousin Peter Weathers Peter is a Yale student staying with his relative and pinching pennies until he can help his family recover from disaster Peter is instantly attracted to the young maiden in exile though she is a Society girl like his lost love Danelle He knows to guard his heart but if he can make his young friend's life a little easier he will do it despite Aunt Eugenia's strict rulesI did not like this story I'm too old for silly bratty heroines Not that I wouldn't have acted the same way myself as a teenager but I didn't care for Lila She's almost a victim of the Why buy the cow when you can have the milk for free? school of thought Certainly that was Roland's intention I do empathize with Lila's exile It sounds horrendous and I think her life could be in danger Aunt Eugenia is just awful and doesn't care about Lila at all Lila's father only cares about his reputation and her mother is too weak to do anything to support her only child It sounds like they blame Lila for something that happened long ago and they favorited their golden haired angel over her That backstory is not fully developed The romance happens too uickly for me and I need an epilogue There's NO WAY that is going to work as is Peter is a fun character He has a sense of humor and is very kind I can see Lila falling in love with him because of the situation and staying in love because of his personality What he sees in her besides a maiden to be rescued I don't know This is my second least favorite story of the collection

    This is exactly what I needed I LOVED it So fun to try the short stories for a change Three of the authors Donna Hatch Sarah M Eden and Joyce DiPastena are three of my favorite authors so I had no doubt that I would love it I wasn't as familiar with the authors Heidi Ashworth Annette Lyon and Heather B Moore but I thoroughly enjoyed their stories too and I'm excited to read of their books I loved the characters and the plots and thought they were amazingly developed for as short as they were I think they would have ALL made great full length novels as welland was sad to see them endbut on another note it was actually kind of nice to be able to sit down get my happily ever after in one sitting rather then having to spend a week of being interrupted with life trying to find out what happens Such fun reads So glad I bought this book
