    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**

    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!
