  • A great deal on these awesome stories!

    I cannot tell you how thrilled I am about having this collection. I picked this arc up because of Jude Knight and Sherry Ewing. They are the ones who put the book up for review on Booksprout. What I found was some of my all-time favorite authors are also included. Eight awesome stories by eight highly talented authors at an unbelievable price of $.99 (4-13-21). This is a collection you really should get. All the story's characters were great but I Loved Jude’s Barnaby and Theodora and Sherry’s Miranda and Jasper these two authors. I want to give an extra shout-out to them. If it not been for them I may have not seen and picked up this gem of a collection. All the stories were splendid! I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

  • Great Boxset

    Another great boxset from the Blue Stocking Belles. Each story is separate but interlinked by the events of the storm cutting off the roads to and from the small village of Fenwick upon Sea. Each story is good in its own right with well written characters, humour, action and lots of tales of village life. Many of the people stranded in the village are not who they seem. A fun boxset full of short reads. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • A good selection of stories

    This is a good selection of stories. All of them are well-written and enjoyable, which isn't always the case with anthologies. Each story is unique, with different tropes and a wide variety of characters, despite the unifying setting. I discovered some new-to-me authors, which was a nice bonus. Thanks, Booksprout, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Great Collection

    Welcome to Fenwick on Sea. Not the best of circumstances; a storm has forced people from land and sea to take shelter at the Queen’s Barque Inn. While the weather is horrible, the fire is warm, the people are interesting and friendly (most of them), and the food is good. Among the guests at the inn are businessmen, sailors, soldiers, smugglers, a lady pirate, ladies who need rescue, and an unusual blacksmith. This is a collection of eight captivating and distinctive stories, each and all enjoyable and entertaining. Careful what you say, though, it seems a writer from the Teatime Tattler is present and looking for a tale or two. Lord Stanton’s Shocking Seaside Honeymoon by Cerise Deland Russell Downey, Earl of Stanton, and Josephine Meadows have known each other for years. The Earl and the merchant’s daughter have worked together to assure delivery of supplies to soldiers fighting on the Peninsula. They are very much in love. No sooner are Russell and Josephine married than business separates them, but not for long. They are reunited at the Queen’s Barque Inn. Survivors of the shipwrecks have been brought here. Will the person and information they seek be here? When work is done, will this couple who has found HEA, be able to enjoy a seaside honeymoon? Russell and Josephine are perfect for each other. They have much in common. They are caring, generous, devoted to duty and each other, and they are in love. Good Read.

  • Perfect for romance readers...

    A fierce storm rages off the coast of the small village of Fenwick on Sea, leading to complete chaos. Stranded travelers invade this village and seek refuge at The Queen’s Barque Inn. Storm & Shelter by Bluestocking Belles and friends features eight interlacing stories with dashing heroes and cutthroats, peers of the realm and servants, heroines from all walks of life, and eight love stories sure to melt your heart. A brilliant boxed set with something for every reader. An Improbable Hero by Mary Lancaster: An heiress on the run gets rescued by a mysterious stranger. When they are both stranded at the inn, Letty calls him her missing husband. Can she convince Simon to leave his dangerous life behind and become her improbable hero? I absolutely loved this story. Letty and Simon are polar opposites yet together, they’re perfectly matched. The romance, suspense, witty banter, and sweet ending make this a must-read. Mary Lancaster is a talented writer who draws the reader into the story. This is my favorite story in the set. 5+ stars Lord Stanton’s Shocking Seaside Honeymoon by Cerise DeLand: After a long courtship, Josephine and Lord Stanton are married. Before they go on their honeymoon, devastating news arrives. Stanton must rescue an agent (read spy) for Josephine and her father’s business in order to secure defeat for Napoleon. A storm hits and risking his life for another, he discovers just how much his beloved loves him. A sweet romance between two mature adults in the middle of a storm where many lives are in jeopardy. Josephine is a strong-willed heroine who’ll do anything to protect those she loves. The historical accuracy is impressive and adds depth to the story. This is my first time reading Cerise DeLand and it won’t be my last. I got swept away with this one. 5 stars The Tender Flood by Caroline Warfield: From the moment Patience and her wagon full of boys and books arrive at the inn, Zach is smitten. When he finds out she’s an earl’s daughter, he surmises she’s above his station in life. He tries to keep his distance but when there’s a missing boy, he takes a leap of faith. Can these two souls unite during the tender flood? I’m familiar with Caroline Warfield and have read a few of her books. She weaves a heartwarming tale in The Tender Flood, blending history and romance with precision. Zach and Patience have tender hearts and are delightful to read. The boys’ antics provide some comedic relief to a tense situation. 5 stars Before I Found You by Sherry Ewing: All Miranda wants is to marry a wealthy gentleman. She craves a title but her beliefs are called into question when she meets Jasper at a ball. He’s rich but the only title he has is Captain. Will she throw love overboard or will she realize love is greater than any title? Sherry Ewing is a one-click author in my books and I inhale all her stories. Before I Found You is a historical romance gem from the first page to the last. The chemistry between Miranda and Jasper is electric and had me rooting for them. Fans of Bree Wolf will love this story. The Comtesse of Midnight by Alina K. Field: A Scottish earl in search of the missing Comtesse de Fontenay saves a French female smuggler in the storm. Little does he know his mysterious companion is a Comtesse de Fontenay but not the one he’s determined to find. Can he discover new meaning in her embrace and love? I’m a huge fan of Alina K. Field and have read all her books. While this is a novella, the story reads like a full-length novel. I found myself captivated and read it in one sitting. From the characters to the plot to the emotional tension to the suspense, The Comtesse of Midnight is historical romance at its best. I loved it from start to finish. Highly recommend! 5+ stars Wait for Me by Rue Allyn: Esmeralda (also known as the pirate Irish Red) and Captain Brandon are sworn enemies. Due to the storm, they’re forced to work together and stay in close quarters. They wind up learning a lot from each other. With both loyal to the sea, can their shared passion turn to love for each other? Wait for Me is a pirate romance where opposing sides come together in a fiery embrace. I was drawn to Esmeralda’s spirit right away. A female pirate? I love this twist to Rue Allyn’s story. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. The descriptive narration transported me while the romance filled my heart with emotions. A brilliant story. 5 stars A Dream Come True by Jude Knight: The last thing on Vicar Barnaby Somerville’s mind is finding a wife. When the storm hits, a beautiful young woman sweeps into his life. He knows her stay is only temporary, so he cherishes her company and her sweet temperament with his young wards. Can she be his answering prayer, his dream come true? A Dream Come True is such an uplifting, feel-good romance. As I read, I kept rooting for these two to make it work. This is my first time reading Jude Knight and I enjoyed it immensely. There’s so much emotion...
