I’ve had this collection on my shelf for a little while. And wow! Why did it take me this long? I completely loved all five novellas. They managed to run the gambit of romance genres and all featured good, strong women who you were completely gunning for the entire time. Five different couples, five different authors, five different settings, one really good adventure. This is the first collection in a long time that I have wanted to read cover to cover instead of taking a break in between like I usually do…
Read more Four Dukes and a Devil by Cathy Maxwell, Elaine Fox, Jeaniene Frost, Sophia Nash & Tracy Anne Warren
This novella was an absolutely fantastic way to end out the Four Dukes and a Devil collection. It was sweet, funny and impossible to put down. I laughed, I smiled (a lot) and just generally loved the adventure that it took me on. The innocence to the story and the humour were a perfect mix. And, as this collection as shown me… I’m kind of falling in love with Regency Romances at the moment. So it worked kind of perfectly for my mood lately.
Read more Charmed by Her Smile by Tracy Anne Warren
Unlike the first three stories in this collection, it took me a little while to fall in love with it. When I did, it was amazing. But it did take a chapter for me to become emotionally invested. However, once I did I was completely hooked. And actually a little mad when the story ended. I have now discovered that I really love regency romances, and I can’t wait to find more stories in this series!
Read more Catch of the Century by Sophia Nash
This year I’ve managed to read a few Night Huntress novels and each time, I fall a little bit more in love with the series. There is just something amazingly engaging and fun about it! But, what I got really, really excited about in this novella – it’s the first story so far in the series which features a demon! Not sure why, but that was a ridiculously exciting moment for me…
Read more Devil to Pay by Jeaniene Frost
This was an incredibly cute and sweet contemporary story. One that was far too easy to read, but I probably also won’t forget for a while. Because, it was just… well… sweet. And innocent and just so supremely easy. I was really sad that it was over so quickly… I enjoy the sweet and easy tone to this storyline.
Read more The Duke Who Came to Dinner by Elaine Fox
This was a great, fun and cute historical romance. It was beautiful, fun and impossible to put down. Mostly, I’m just disappointed that this is a standalone novella. I would love to have this as part of a greater series… but that’s okay, I’ll just find another one of Maxwell’s books to add to my ever-expanding list. Mostly, I think I loved this because it was so incredibly sweet and easy. It wasn’t the kind of story that you have to concentrate on and really delve into.
