    Dukes & Christmas, need I say more?

    For starters, DUKES! I don’t care how many make-believe dukes have been created, I’ll read them for as long as they keep writing them. Secondly, Christmas! I’ll admit that I prefer to read dark, scary, paranormal stories during the month of October, but c’mon, who can say no to Christmas stories, specially when they are written by some of your favorite authors and they all come together in one pretty package! And that actually brings me to say that thirdly, it’s freaking Tessa Dare, Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan, and Joanna Shupe, what?! If you haven’t read books by them then let me tell you, you are missing out on some serious awesomeness. And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m a super fan of all of these ladies so forgive me if I gush too much. Tessa Dare’s Meet Me in Mayfair was clever, funny, and oh, so romantic. It probably is one of the most charming and memorable “date” nights I have ever read. Sarah MacLean’s The Duke of Christmas Present is a second-chance love story. There were some serious tug-at-your-heart scenes, specially when the heroine returns “home.” It was kind of hard for me to understand the reasoning behind both the hero and heroine’s actions but once I got to the end, everything made complete sense. Sophie Jordan’s Heiress Alone was another great example of how chemistry between hero and heroine affects a story, even if it’s a short one and even if the romance happens rather quickly. Joanna Shupe’s Christmas in Central Park had me worrying and suffering along with the poor heroine, and had me wanting to slap the hero upside the head for acting like a spoiled brat that just had to have his way. Their love story may had been full of funny and cringe-worthy moments but the way their forgive and reach their HEA made it all worth it. In short, four different settings, four different kinds of delicious dukes, four great Christmas stories, and one happy reader that recommends this set to all historical romance lover. Even if Christmas is not your cup of tea, the romance alone make this a perfect read. 4.5 stars. *I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher**

    A Wonderful Collection

    A wonderful collection of Christmas stories by four of the best authors of historical romance! What more could you ask for? With some magical shortbread the enchantment is amazing! Meet Me in Mayfair by Tessa Dare Louisa is feeling distraught because her home is about to be sold. Attending a ball she meets James, the Duke of Thorndale who owns her home. But he does not know who she is, so she sets her plan in action to entice him and convince him not to sell the house! Loved both of these characters and their attraction came off the pages. I could only smile as I turned the last page! The Duke of Christmas Present by Sarah MacLean A second chance romance, with the road to the HEA long. Eben had loved Jaqueline (Jack) forever it seemed, at least since they were young. But he had become a ruthless, rich man who remembered only one perfect holiday years ago. He wants to drink himself into forgetting the best Christmas from his past with Jack. She had been gone 12 years and on her return, she is determined to help him. A play on A Christmas Carol with memories of past, present and what the future could be. Loved this tale! Heiress Alone by Sophie Jordan Forgotten by her big family at their Scottish estate, Annis is stranded due to the snowstorm. Yes, they left her own her own with just two servants in the house! Worried about the outlaws who have been robbing homes and terrorizing everyone, she is surprised when her elusive neighbor, the Duke comes to take the servants to his home and ends up with her too! Oh yes, the chemistry between the two was strong and it was a fun and entertaining story! Christmas in Central Park by Joanna Shupe I really enjoy Joanna Shupe's stories set in America during the gilded age and this was no exception. Adored socialite advice columnist Mrs Walker, who is suppose to be married, is really Miss Rose Walker, who is anything but domestic. But when her boss, Duke Havermeyer needs her to host an important Christmas dinner to help him keep his position with the board, all her his lies have to come out! But trying to fight the attraction to each other may be more than she can manage! A fun, spirited tale that will put you in the holiday spirit!! As you can see I truly enjoyed each of these stories and they just made my heart smile!

    Get lost in the past

    What a wonderful way to begin the Christmas Season! I love all 4 of the novellas from some of my favorite authors. “Meet Me in Mayfair” by Tessa Dare, “The Duke of Christmas Present” by Sarah MacLean, “Heiress Alone” by Sophie Jordan, and “Christmas in Central Park” by Joanna Shupe were all fun, quick reading, and tied together by a 'magical' shortbread recipe. I'm not sure I love the idea of the tie-in, but it was a fun addition. The recipe is in the back of the book and I'll have to try it! If you want quick, fulfilling reads, purchase this book, sit down with some shortbread and hot chocolate, put a blanket across you knees, and spend some time in the past!
