Kiss Me, Cowboy, Melissa McClone
Kiss Me, Cowboy - Melissa McClone

I received this western romance for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I enjoyed this clean romance although it took a little bit to get into it. It included the rodeo, hot cowboys and more. It seemed to get into the characters a little more and try to work out why they did what they did and it had a nice ending. I've given it a 4* rating.

A Christmas MIracle For Daisy, Jane Porter
A Christmas Miracle for Daisy (Taming of the Sheenans Book 5) - Jane Porter

I really enjoyed this clean Christmas Romance, and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is the 5th story in the All I Want For Christmas bundle. For 2 people working together, they sure stayed apart a lot. There was even a little Christmas whimsy sprinkled in to stir this up. Another story to leave you with a good feeling.

The Wish, Beverly Lewis
The Wish - Beverly Lewis

I really enjoyed this clean Amish Romance. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to Review it. I've given it a 5* rating. It's interesting in the way it incorporated two women's lives in this story. It wove many of the Amish ways into the everyday happenings and in part, how they speak. I love how they show family in the everyday way of things and also the sense of community. I'll be reading more of this author's work.

The Unflappable Miss Fairchild (Zebra Regency Romance) - Regina Scott

Not exactly a terrible book, but unfortunately it wasn't the gem I was hoping for. And it is extremely overrated in GR. The story was very predictable, full of cliche moments, but the worst of all were the two main characters. Usually I feel a sort of bond with any heroine named Anne (I love that name) but I couldn't with this one... she should have been named something else. She is very proper, calm, etc, meaning, she is so boring! The author keeps telling us how the characters were, the book is full of adjectives, and not necessarily with the background, but with his eyes, her eyes, his hair, her hair... I hate this kind of writing, it is one of my pet peeves in romance.

 

Other pet peeve? She is supposed to be plain, the hero thinks so at the beginning (except for her "big, lovely, innocent, gray" eyes) but she has plenty of suitors and many men are charmed by her, making the hero jealous **eyeroll**

 

The hero is no better... he is supposed to be a rake, blah blah, who falls in love for the first time, blah blah. He doesn't have any nice quality that makes the reader fall for him. In fact, I wasn't even invested in their love story at all, not at the beginning, not in the middle, not at the end. They are supposed to be likeable, but how could I like them, when they were playing victim all the time? He with his older brother ("oh he is mean, he hates me, I am just the 2nd son, a bastard") and she with her aunt ("oh she hates me, I sacrifice my happiness because of her"), when in reality, both "mean characters" were only looking after them, after having a hard lives on their own. But no! both MC are the ones that are suffering **eye-roll**

 

The misunderstandings were insufferable, so stupid and only because of lack of communication/assumptions. Honestly, both MC were so lame I had a hard time to finish this!

Christmas Mail-Order Brides, Susan Page Davis
Christmas Mail-Order Brides: Four Mail-Order Brides Travel the Transcontinental Railroad in Search of Love - Carrie Turansky,Vickie McDonough,Therese Stenzel,Susan Page Davis

This was a clean, with light religious undertones, romance type Christmas Mail Order bride collection of 4 stories. All the brides were sent through Mrs. Mayberry's business. While all the brides found their mates, it was not always the way it was planned. It was put together with 4 authors, Carrie Turansky, Vickie McDonough, Therese Stanzel, and Susan Page Davis. I've given this a 4.5 to 5* rating. I really enjoyed all 4 stories.
