Review: With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins
With This Christmas Ring - Manda Collins

Sweet yet emotional and passionate story. Tie-in for both of the author’s Studies in Scandal and Lords of Anarchy however it can definitely be read as a stand alone. 

The last person Merry wanted to see was her former fiancé however she was willing to do everything within her power to give her dead friend’s child the family she deserved. Alex never understood the reason Merry jilted him and when she appeared at his door seeking his cousin, he knew that was the perfect opportunity to find answers and perhaps ask for a second chance at love. 

I very much liked that the story started with Merry as a take-charge, brave, and intelligent woman however as the story progressed her attitude sort of changed and she started to sound meek, or perhaps insecure, and that gave me a"what-happened-to-her?" kind of sense. It wasn’t too bad but it still took away from the overall enjoyment of the story. 
Her chemistry with Alex was nonetheless well-balanced. He was sweet, honorable, and passionate. He was a man of his word who respected family and friends immensely, particularly his grandmother given that she was the one who had taken care of him since he was a child. He never pushed Merry to do anything she didn’t want and allowed her time to think and answer all of his questions. I think both their characters were well rounded in the sense that we get to understand what got them to be where they are and how much they deserved their HEA. 
I’m not so sure what to think about the villains, though. One of the arcs sounded inconclusive and even implausible and the other one, well, I’m still wondering about that one. Still, the main romantic arc was what made this story worth my time and I do recommend it to anyone looking for a Christmas romantic story.

Snow Globe Reunion (A Snow Globe Christm... Snow Globe Reunion (A Snow Globe Christmas) - Christina Lorenzen

I enjoyed this clean sort of fantasy romance that involves some time travel. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. This gal has had a bummer of a day trying to get home for Christmas. Anything that could go wrong, probably did. If you like time travel books, then you'll probably enjoy this one. So things probably work out the way they should. Nice ending.

Book review: Hot Winter Nights: A Racy Regency Christmas Collection
Hot Winter Nights - Tammy Andresen,Amy Rose Bennett,Heather Boyd,Dawn Brower,Amanda Mariel,Nina Mason,Christina McKnight,Lauren Smith

Lovely Christmastide stories from start to finish! I loved how each story described the Holidays in its own unique way and yet they shared one unique trait. It was like partaking of one grand feast only at different locations. 
I think what’s best about reading collections is that even if you don’t love one story you can always jump to the next one without breaking pace (or your budget) but always ending up feeling satisfied with your read. 
I read all the stories in this set and I’ll be honest, some had a much more complete storyline as well as complex plot and characters for such short stories I had to rate them higher than others; however that Christmasy and romantic feeling was consistent through and through each one of them. So in short, if you are in the mood for a spicy Christmas read that will get you ready for the Holidays, then this set is your fix.

From Scratch (Rapid Reads) - Gail Anders... From Scratch (Rapid Reads) - Gail Anderson-Dargatz

I enjoyed this clean romance. I received this book free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. It wasn't a fast moving story but it had a lot of feeling to it. This single mother struggled to do what she thought was right for her daughter. Without giving anymore away, it had a real nice ending. It also has a cookie recipe at the end.

Riverbend, Ciara Knight
In All My Dreams (Riverbend Book 3) - Ciara Knight

I enjoyed this clean, sweet novella Romance, Book .05. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review. I've given this a 4.5* rating. This would make a good case for the absent minded professor saying. Both the hero and the heroine were a little bit like that.This is a nice sweet love story.
