    This is by far one of the best historical anthologies I ve read It includes sweet to thesteamy romance but they are all very well crafted and especially unique in their own way Each author voices their own piece through and at the end of it all romance is the after taste that you are left with The reader may feel some stories are better than others however the set as a whole deserves the 5 stars I m giving it because it truly granted me that feeling of being taken to another place and t This is by far one of the best historical anthologies I ve read It includes sweet to thesteamy romance but they are all very well crafted and especially unique in their own way Each author voices their own piece through and at the end of it all romance is the after taste that you are left with The reader may feel some stories are better than others however the set as a whole deserves the 5 stars I m giving it because it truly granted me that feeling of being taken to another place and time and because at the end of each story I just had to start the next one I had only read works from two of the authors but I ll definitely be readingfrom the others His Lordship s Vow by Cheryl Bolen Lord Slade must honor a vow but in doing so may have to put aside his growing feeling for the somewhat pretty but plain and extremely lean figured Ms Featherstone I swear, every time she was called plain I felt a punch to my own ego This is one of the few stories I recall show an extremely intelligent but slighted heroine, not so much because she was plain but because she didn t have much to her name I liked that about her She knew her circumstances and yet she was making the best of them, as I m sure many woman of the time had to I mean no offense to any Austen fans but I can imagine Ms Jane imagining a story like this one To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone by Bronwen Evans This is one that made me want to slap the hero I don t know how many times throughout the book He was so crass and rude to the poor heroine However he had very good reasons He thought she had run away with another rich man when they were younger so when she approached him with a proposal, that is, the famous wager, he intended to take advantage of the situation and of her as much as he could That would be his revenge on her Little did he know things were not what they appeared of course, as that s the twist and many new secrets are discovered The beginning was not much to my liking but as I continued reading and their story developed, I could feel the chemistry between them settling, and finally started feeling for them and what they had to go through in the past There were a few things that made me raise an eyebrow regarding the plot and the heroine s actions but not enough to take away from the enjoyment of the heart of the story.The Christmas Knot by Barbara Monajem Another second chance story but this one with a different twist I m even going to call it a Gothic story with a comic relief, that of being the ghost I don t know if the ghost is supposed to be funny but there are a couple of instances that she actually makes me laugh Widowed Mrs White seeks work as a governess in a house that is in shambles, haunted by a ghost, under a curse, and what s worst, her new employer is the only man she s ever loved but didn t marry because of a misunderstanding The story takes us through a maze of suspense and clues in order to lift the curse and save someone s life Not only that, but Edwina finds out that she never stopped loving Sir Richard, her employer, and will do anything to make him happy, even if that means leaving Sir Richard seems so brooding and cold but it s also so understandable given what he s going through I liked both of them, their interaction and how their relationship grew Bride of Falcon by Collette Cameron Falcon is the kind of hero you feel and fall for right away He s too flawed both emotionally and physically because of what he thinks were his failings during his time as a soldier and now he thinks he s not worthy of Ivonne s love Ivonne is in a dire situation where he must choose a man to marry or The Prince Regent will choose one for her and the candidate is a man she detests Her heart belongs to Falcon, as it always has but she now has to convince him that regardless of his looks and financial situation she will still have him Ivonne s na vet and innocence had me laughing most of the time, especially when she was with Falcon She tries to be a woman and seeks for help but it seems no one around her wants or is there to help her And then that same innocence makes Falcon believe she was just trying to satisfy her curiosity For shame Men of all eras can be so stupid LOL Flawed or not, one of my favorite heroes The Duelist s Seduction by Lauren Smith Ms Helen Banks dresses herself as her twin brother in order to save his life The morning of the duel she somehow locks him up because she was afraid if he was the one attending the duel and was killed, she d end up in a workhouse or on the streets However, once the cold hearted and offended Mr Fairfax realizes the ruse, he proposes something unexpected This one had me confused at the beginning Helen doesn t want her brother dead because she doesn t want to end in a brothel or on the streets selling her body but instead agrees to be Mr Fairfax s mistress so he can forgive the debt Supposedly, no one would know about the agreement but she d know about it, and once her brother found out he d probably ask for another duel, which would probably had the same outcome as her original fear which in turn would make the whole world know about it It is explained however that Helen has always been attracted to Fairfax and has a curiosity about his rud libidinous behavior with the ladies She accepts hesitantly but exceedingly willingly She wants to knowabout pleasure and life before secluding herself to the hardships of life The plot in itself is really good it s just that her actions sounded a little contradictory As the story progresses, we see another side of Fairfax, a warmer and loving side and we come to find out the reasons of his behavior I fell in love with the H and h once I got past the beginning, and the romance didn t feel rushed or forced, it even felt tender at times, as if they had been friends for a long time One of the steamiest of them all but very well done and I wish I could saybut I m scared I d be stepping on spoiler territory and I don t want to do that Christmas Wishes by Wendy Vella Lovely Christmas story about Hero that name itself makes me giggle and Lord Max Caruthers Hero is in dire need for money to make reparations for her house and to provide for orphans she s taken under her wing She s a maiden with no fortune to her own and her own family has left her destitute Well, it was that or life as a mistress to her cousin So she decides to enlist the help of rich and rogue Max who wants nothingin life than live in debauchery and decadence He has the money, she needs the money, why not ask him for what he has in loads Max falls for Hero because even though she is a lady in her manners and way of speaking, she says things as they see them and holds nothing back, and intrigues him evenbecause thinks the worst of him however called for his help The children are a great addition to the story, especially dear Owen and Charlotte I don t like when couples fall so quickly in love with each other but given that this is a short story I m going to forgive that and focus that they found their HEA The story started with a lot of levity but as it developed,drama enfolded and the story turned a bit too dark Not saying I didn t like it, just that I d have loved to see the same arc continue throughout the story Miss Watson s First Scandal by Heather Boyd For some reason I found this one the quickest read of them and the funniest as well Perhaps it was because our hero, David Hawke, was supposed to be all reserved and goody two shoes and the last thing he expected was to be seduced by one of his best friend s now fully grown sister All he wanted when he got to the town of Brighton was to get some bad business out of the way and then enjoy some well deserved free time However our heroine Abigail Watson had plans of her own, albeit I don t think her initial plan was to fall in love with David To get out of debt, Abigail attempts to make her brother Robert marry a horrible but rich heiress and asks less than ladylike questions to David David, while trying to secure her reputation, realizes how charming and innocently beautiful Abigail is However, the big problem remains, how to get tell one of his best friends they are pretty much destitute and at the same time tell him she loves his sister There were some good twists I didn t see coming and on the other hand would have like the story a bit longer to explain and givedetails as to why things turned out the way they did but as usual as with the rest of the set, that did not demerit the enjoyment of the whole I received a copy of this set in exchange of an honest review And no, I don t just grant 5 stars because I was gifted a copy

    Captivated by His Kiss is a compilation of seven historical romances, and there is not a bad one in the bunch Some stories are sweet and others are steamy, giving the reader a nice mix There are some older stories so they may have been in other books, but I had not read any of them before Overall, this is a 4 star book and a must buy for anyone who enjoys regency romance.His Lordship s Vow by Cheryl Bolen is a sweet 4 star read The main characters were all written extremely well and easy to Captivated by His Kiss is a compilation of seven historical romances, and there is not a bad one in the bunch Some stories are sweet and others are steamy, giving the reader a nice mix There are some older stories so they may have been in other books, but I had not read any of them before Overall, this is a 4 star book and a must buy for anyone who enjoys regency romance.His Lordship s Vow by Cheryl Bolen is a sweet 4 star read The main characters were all written extremely well and easy to get attached to I loved almost everything about Jane s character She is intelligent, caring, and a strong woman in many ways There were times when I got tired of her inner musings about her lack of beauty Her relationship with Lord Slade was sweet, and it was easy to see they were meant for each other My only problem with their courtship was that I felt it lacked passion through most of the story.To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone by Bronwen Evans is a steamy 5 star read The story flowed nicely and kept me engaged from beginning to end I liked both Sabine and Marcus characters, even when I felt they were making bad decisions Sabine is strong and in spite of her difficult past still has an innocent side Marcus, I wasn t sure about at first, but I warmed to him as the story progressed The obvious chemistry between Sabine and Marcus is really hot There was also a bit of mystery to add to the appeal of this story.The Christmas Knot by Barbara Monajem is a good 4 star read I was torn when rating this book In the beginning it feltlike a 3.5 star read, but by the end I felt it deserved 4 stars The story flowed well and the plot was solid Edwina, despite being so down on her luck, tried hard to remain positive The fact that she did not always succeed made her seemreal I also really loved Richard s children Richard, I had trouble connecting with There were some points where I felt his actions conflicted too much with his thoughts Still, this is overall a good romance, and I enjoyed watching Richard and Edwina solve a mystery, lift a curse, and find love again.Bride of Falcon by Collette Cameron was a good story that would have been much better if it were longer There were just too many plot points to tie up in such a short time I liked Ivy and Chance but didn t really have enough time to bond with them as a potential couple This was disappointing because the first scene showed incredible chemistry between them The author set the stage for an exciting tale where Ivy would try to win Chance, while he believed he was not worthy of her In the end, their issues were resolved a little too quickly with no real resistance I gave this one 3.5 stars but think with would have been at least 4.5 stars if it was longer.Christmas Wishes by Wendy Vella is a sweet 4.5 star read I really loved Hero She is compassionate and not afraid to defy convention to care for others Hero is very distrusting of men and assumes Max is like the others she s known, selfish and cruel While their first meeting doesn t go well, Max soon finds himself fascinated with Hero It was cute to see how both characters interacted with the orphans and each other This story moved along nicely and kept me entertained from start to finish.Miss Watson s First Scandal by Heather Boyd is a fun 5 star read I wasn t sure I liked David at first He came across as much to stiff and concerned with his job Then Abigail was thrown into the mix Where David is proper, Abigail is impulsive Together these two make a fantastic couple, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading their interactions as they came to the realization that they belonged together This book does end with somewhat of a cliffhanger obviously teasing the reader with stories to come, but there is a satisfying happily ever after for Abigail and David The Duelist s Seduction by Lauren Smith is a sexy 4.5 star read I really liked Helen She is not afraid to risk everything to save her brother, including her life or reputation While she has an inner strength that is obvious, she still manages to have a soft and innocent nature Gareth is brooding and dominant, almost to the point of being completely unlikable in the beginning I will admit that I wasn t sure I d warm up to him His inner musings and fascination with Helen seemed creepy at first While Helen and Gareth falling in love felt rushed, I really enjoyed the chemistry between them This was a very hot read.I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
