Stealing the Duke's Heart by Shana Galen
Stealing the Duke's Heart - Shana Galen

Stealing the Duke's Heart - Shana Galen 

 

**These novellas were previously published in the anthologies The Dukes of Vauxhall and How to Find a Duke in Ten Days.**

 

How to Steal a Duke 
Dominik and Rosalyn make one of my favorite couples ever. She was graceful, playful, and brave. He was haughty, proper, and much to his chagrin, caring. Together they are the perfect pair. With a hint at gothic, and although it’s only a novella, this story packs plenty: romance, nail-biting situations, and an unexpected twist. It was a nice story that I wish would have been longer! 

Taken by the Duke 
When Henry is attacked by a band of ruffians, the last thing he expected was to come reacquainted with a long lost love. Kate has changed so much since he last saw her however he knows that deep inside she’s still the same girl he knew all those years ago. There were sparks flying for these two from the start. I loved that it’s not your typical “duke” and there was “no damsel in distress.” I thought the ending was kind of abrupt but it was still an enjoyable read. 

Both stories were fun, enjoyable, and quick reads. If you’re looking for a read to pass your morning, this is the one to get.

The Soldier's Scoundrel (The Turner Series #1) by Cat Sebastian
The Soldier's Scoundrel - Cat Sebastian

This was my first by the author and it for sure won't be my last. Oliver and Jack were from opposite sides on the social scale and yet they found a way to make it work in a totally believable way. Even though Jack was kind of a jerk at times he was still lovable and charming and oh, so sexy. Definitely an enjoyable, satisfying story.

The Luck of the Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses #3) by Janna MacGregor
The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor

The Luck of the Bride - Janna MacGregor 

 

his was a fun yet heart-melting story. I felt sad for March from the start. She’d been down on her luck for the longest and even though it shouldn’t have been like this, her family was about to hit rock bottom. The fact that her family stayed afloat for so long was a statement of how smart she was. 
I liked all characters portrayals as they were all defined and complex. I especially liked March’s younger brother, Bennett. His innocence added that dash of humor at the most interesting of times. March and Michael were great as a couple (at least through most of the book and I’ll get to that later.) She was sweet-natured and compassionate, always worrying about her siblings and how she was going to provide for them. Michael was charming and unassuming. It was easy to see why March fell for him. 

I dislike storylines that use unpremeditated secrets as another challenge to overcome. In this case, March and Michael had already made promises to each other but the moment such secret came to light, all promises were forgotten and even more drama was added. In addition, Michael’s attitude got me confused as I didn’t understand what exactly he was waiting for to correct his wrongdoings. 

In short, it was a good story that will have you tearing up as much as inducing a laugh, and if you don’t mind an excessive amount of purple prose then you will definitely enjoy this book.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 4: A Bundle of 14 Wholesome Holiday Romances - Mona Risk,Josie Riviera,Beate Boeker,Christine Bush,Lyn Cote,Denise Devine,Raine English,Jean C. Gordon,Shanna Hatfield,Milou Koenings,Roxanne Rustand,Magdalena Scott,Kristin Wallace,Merrillee Whren

he Gift of Yesterday by Milou Koenings part of Sweet Chistmas Kisses 4
Book starts out with Bailey and she moving forward with her life and career after all the living relatives have passed away and left her much in the way of inheritance.
She moves back to Green Pines where she grew up with Joe 15 years earlier. Each chapter alternates with Bailey and Joe as life goes on in the town.
An old fashioned fair during the fall months excites her so she can get the word out she's open for business. She also meets others in town that help her and she's able to solicit her pastries to the local diner who wants to sell them.
She recalls the Larsons who are in the ministry and she hopes to get together with them and maybe Annie who's in Africa (from a previous book). The woman who answers the door gives her information about the Larsons and sets it back...
Love how strong and so sure of herself as she sets out to prove she can do the shop and make a go of it. Carnival time in town and so much activity going on, can't even imagine the smells from the place!
She fits in as her food is used to help many who need the goods. Friends are trying to set Joe up with females and they aren't having any luck...such fond memories of when they grew up and the things they did-very similar to our childhood.
Some twists and turns along the way. Easy going holiday read, light romance, loved it!
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with reviews from her other works.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.

The Kampala Peppermint Twist from Sweet Christmas Kisses 3
Start out with Amy and she's attending a family friends wedding as the maid of honor. She's lost her job, her boyfriend who was her boss and it's Christmastime and her mother in Africa finds out.
Isabelle invites Amy to come visit and she gets a plane ride-despite getting injured before she even gets on the plane. Love all the plans and how much the author tells you about Amy's past and her parents work in Africa.
So unpredictable for a Christmas holiday as they are in Africa, no snow and no cold. Love how she quickly helps others to only discover the doctor she already knew from the plane-she had gotten the wrong impression of him.
A huge gala party for the holiday and again she meets the doctor who not only dances with her but they get to know one another better. With all the help she's been giving the area she's neglected to explore and he invites her...
Precious gift she is able to give her mother-awesome idea for tinsel! Loved the travel and points of interest-so descriptive and informative!  
Love how the book got its title, so unexpected from traditional Christmas holidays.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
