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.

Short paranormal shifter book
Wolf's Sweet Chipmunk: A Gay MPREG Shift... Wolf's Sweet Chipmunk: A Gay MPREG Shifter Romance - Tara Harris

Wolf's Sweet Chipmunk by Tara Harris is a short paranormal book, a good choice for shifter fans with limited reading time.  Ms. Harris has provided us with an amusing story.  James is an alpha wolf shifter and meets Earnest, an omega chipmunk while working at the library.  Their story has drama, humor, lots of M/M sex and a little action.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Christmas Mansion (sweet gay romance)
The Christmas Mansion (sweet gay romance) - Hollis Shiloh This was okay. There were some really cute parts, as it's more of a sweet romance than hot, but there were still problems, for me.

Despite my Kindle deleting all my notes, I can still remember the problems from last night's reading - namely that the story hints at being "historical" all the way through, even in the blurb, yet the only thing even remotely historical about it is the fact that they use gas lights and horse drawn carriages. And the mention of a magician is such a small factor in the plot that it could have been missed out entirely and the story wouldn't have been affected. To me, it read as a contemporary story - everyone was wearing jeans, talking in modern speech, and men were dancing with and kissing other men out in the open, flirting with perfect strangers, without the slightest hint of being caught or it not being the "norm", as it would in a historical. For me, I might have believed it more without the magical aspect and the historical attempts, because they just didn't fit the story.

I liked the characters. They were decent, if not as explored as I would normally like. For the length of the story, it was adequate. I had a problem with the insta-love issue, but other than that, it was a decent read and I'd read more by the author in the future.
