    A Wonderful Collection Of Historical Novellas

    This is a very entertaining and enjoyable collection of historical novellas. These fun stories offer up blends of drama, humor, excitement, charm, mystery, danger and of course, romance. My favorites of the bunch were: Dueling with the Duke by Eileen Dreyer: Which I thought was quite suspenseful and dramatic, Dear Duke by Anna Harrington: Which was funny, sweet and filled with charm and The Duke and the April Flowers by Grace Burrowes: This was a completely swoon worthy romance that was filled with sweetness, humor and heart melting romance.

    Interesting characters, fun stories

    Discovering the Duke by Madeline Martin - Julia was so sweet and William was so adorable that I did not want to stop reading this story. I loved how he went out of his way to win his wife's love. Together, these two found that love conquers fear when with the right person. Love Letters From a Duke by Gina Conkle - Charlotte and Nathaniel were such a wonderful, steamy couple. I kept turning pages as they tried to avoid what was in front of them. With his determination to have what he truly wanted, Nathaniel ignored convention and the age difference, and went for what he wanted most in life, Charlotte. His mother was an interesting touch to the story. I have yet to finish all the stories and I look forward to adding to this review. If the others are like these two, this is a good collection. I received a copy as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Loved it!

    Dukes by the Dozen is a collection of 13 'Baker Dozen' total of book with almost 955 pages by 13 different authors. This is such a great collection of Novella by authors I just love. But if you haven't had a chance to read stories by one or any of the authors this is a great way to be introduced to them. In addition this box set is a great way to keep some 'books' on hand when you need a quick read while waiting for an appointment (I do this all the time!), a quick read before bed or to get your quick fix on a romance story. I am just doing a happy dance with this set. I again cannot tell you how much so of these authors are just my favorite go to ones. I totally would recommend this great selection! Here are the books that you will be getting; Book 1; Duke in Winter by Alyssa Alexander Book 2; The Difference One Duke Makes by Elizabeth Essex Book 3; Discovering The Duke by Madeline Martin Book 4; The Duke and the April Flowers by Grace Burrowes Book 5; Love Letters From a Duke Gina Conkle Book 6; Her Perfect Duke by Ella Quinn Book 7; How To Ditch a Duke by Mary McGoldrick Book 8; To Tempt a Highland Duke by Bronwen Evans Book 9; Duke in Search of A Duchess by Jennifer Ashley Book 10; Dear Duke by Anna Harrington Book 11; Must Love Duke by Heather Snow Book 12; The Mistletoe Duke by Sabrina York Book 13; Dueling with the Duke by Elieen Dreyer

    One for the keeper shelf!

    DUKES BY THE DOZEN looked like a dream come true for historical romance lovers, and best of all, it lived up to my very high expectations. While not all the novellas rated 5 stars, those that did were so stellar that I feel justified in giving the anthology a 5-star rating overall. With such a bevvy of fantastic historical romance authors, it was to be expected, but I am astounded at the results. If you like historical romance, are a fan of any of the authors', or want to discover new authors, or even give historical romance a try, you could not wish for a better collection. My personal favourites are the novellas by Gina Conkle, Elizabeth Essex, Jennifer Ashley, May McGoldrick, Grace Burrowes, Anna Harrington, Heather Snow, and Eileen Dreyer. As you can see, it's a very high number of outstanding stories for an anthology, and a book for the keeper shelf!
