A short, clean, and sweet romance, with a great setting and characters you’ll love.
Phoebe's Promise (Oregon Sky Series Book 1) - Kay P. Dawson

This is a sweet novella, a clean romance, and what’s more, it’s FREE. I was intrigued by the historical setting (as I had read about the Oregon Trail years back) and by the description of the book. I wondered how the girl pretending to be a boy would work out in such circumstances. The novella moves at a good pace and has all the elements fans of the genre would expect: a man a and woman destined for each other who try to resist the evident attraction between them (it’s complicated), a love rival (well, two, one each), setbacks, misunderstandings, past difficulties that get in the way, and family matters (that at times help and at others hinder the path of true love). The setting works well for the novella, and we get a good sample of the difficulties of the Trail and how hard it must have been for the pioneers, although the amount of detail would not satisfy a keen reader of historical novels. The characters are likeable and relatable, and although it is a short book (it includes two chapters of the next book in the series as well, so it is shorter than it seems), we get to care for them and want to see them settled and happy, especially after the hard times they have to live through. Both of the main characters, Phoebe and Colton, carry a weight of guilt because they feel they have not protected their families as they should and although they might play tough and pretend to be hard, they have hearts of gold and are loyal to a fault. Although Phoebe is hard-working and determined, she does not subvert the boundaries of her gender, and at times is in need of rescue (although she does a fair amount of rescuing herself, mostly emotionally). Colton is not a flawless hero, but rises up to the challenge, and beyond, when is needed. The author is particularly skilled at managing to make readers connect emotionally with the characters and the events, without going over the top pulling at our heartstrings. There are sad moments, but there are also joyful and light moments and, overall, this is an uplifting read. An easy read, with likeable characters, a romantic couple we root for from the beginning, and an interesting background. Although it is not full of surprises, it will satisfy fans of the genre. I became fond of the characters and enjoyed the sample of the next novel, so I might visit again.

I really enjoyed this Christmas Romance set of 2 books. I received this set as a gift and voluntarily chose to review it. I averaged this rating to 4.7*. These who done it's kept me reading late into the night, to finish it. Both hero's were protective by nature. It's a good thing too.

Santa Paws Is Coming To Town, Roxanne St. Claire
Santa Paws is Coming to Town (A Dogfather Short Tail) (The Dogfather Book 4) - Roxanne St. Claire

I really enjoyed this short, somewhat clean Christmas story. I received this for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. This really had a lot going on. It had many of the sorrows and joys we all have during the holidays. So this was a nice soul touching Christmas story.

Melody's Christmas, Id Johnson
Melody's Christmas (Heartwarming Holiday... Melody's Christmas (Heartwarming Holidays Sweet Romance Book 1) - ID Johnson,Lauren Yearsley Morgan

I enjoyed this clean Christmas Romance. I voluntarily chose to review this story. I've given this a 4.7* rating. Although the characters started out a little downbeat about Christmas, it was a form of grief, in different ways. Thanks for one active, upbeat child and one's handyman's skills that brought them together, these two challenged each other. Left me with really good feelings.
