  • Her uncle is not a nice person.

    What a truly horrible place The Vynes and Ruby’s uncle is a very sad old man. In the end he is left all alone it is so very sad but very understandable. Hector Stockwick turned out to be an ok character true I was not sure at first but he grew on me like he did with Ruby. I am glad that in the end she received her silver bell back it had been lost for so many years. I liked Blackwood he was a good character. I like how the story was written too. My only question is what Clement will say when he hears the truth and there is still the problem of Roper but even with the unanswered question I found that this was a good story that I enjoyed reading and I am happy to recommend. I did receive a free copy of this book from Booksprout and voluntarily chose to review it.

  • Good Story

    Lord Hector Stockwick came to the Vynes to spend Christmas with his sister, but she has yet to arrive. Ruby Roper, a widow, has come to the Vynes in hope that her uncle will protect her and her young son. Childhood friends, Hector and Ruby renew their acquaintance. He also befriends Ruby’s son Pip. When he realizes that Uncle’s plans for Ruby and Pip are less than honorable, he is determined to protect both of them. Can he keep them safe? Will Ruby trust him? Silver Bells is a lovely Christmas story. There is a bit of everything - drama, mystery, betrayal, twists and turns, surprises, and romance. Hector, Ruby, and Pip fit together perfectly. Pip is an active happy child. Lord Vynes is a bitter man who wants only to use Ruby to settle a debt. Boy, does he get a surprise. I enjoyed and recommend this quick entertaining read. What happened to the silver bell? That’s a surprise, too. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

  • Hector and Ruby's Story

    This is a very difficult situation where no woman would sit still for it, regardless of the practices at the time. Ruby Roper is a widow now, and she learns that her Scottish father-in-law, who never liked anyone born English and never approved of her, intends to marry her off while keeping her 4-year-old son, Pip!!! He would have struck her across the face if his wife had not grabbed his arm. But he had all of her dowry money and the man who wanted her would be there the next day to complete the deal. To Ruby’s surprise, when her father-in-law went out to the barn, Eliza took the unfinished embroidery Ruby was going to sell but then paid her enough to get a ride and food on her way. Then Eliza sent Pip back to the house while she kept her husband occupied. With Eliza’s kindness and her not willing to allow the outrageous injustice of separating her from her son, Ruby escapes to her uncle’s estate, only to find the situation there is not much better. Yet she does meet an old acquaintance from her childhood, Lord Hector Stockwick, a man she is certain stole her beloved silver bell. Ruby and Hector eventually restore their friendship. He and Pip are already bonding. Will Ruby end up falling in love with him? Will he protect Ruby and Pip from being taken advantage of by others, as her uncle may have plans for her as well? I really enjoyed this story, although I did stomp my feet and express “righteous indignation” on Ruby’s behalf. I am so glad Hector turned out to be one of the good guys. Will they get their HEA at last? Will Ruby ever find out what “really” happened to her silver bell?

  • Excellent - Enjoyed it Thoroughly

    Silver Bells by Heather Boyd Distinguished Rogues #17 What a nice way to get away from it all today by reading a heartwarming romance with a happily ever after. Not too long and not too short…just right in every way. What I liked: * Ruby: married for love, lost her family, had a son, then lost her husband only to have to worry about how to keep herself and her son safe. Her choices were limited but she did the best she could with what she had. * Hector: a scoundrel with a heart of gold. Charming, a good brother, wealthy, a lord, not in the market for a wife…until he was. I liked him. * Pip: Ruby’s son: a typical four-year-old boy loved by his mother and able to charm Hector. * Parker: Hector’s valet, an ex-soldier, wiser than most, a great defender, looked out for Hector and those Hector cared about * Samuel Blackwell: I kind of would like to know more about him and wonder if he had a book of his own in this series. * That the bad guys didn’t get away with their evil schemes * That the story, though short, had everything required in a romance. What I didn’t like: * Mr. Roper: Ruby’s father-in-law was someone to get away from as soon as possible. * Vyne: reprehensible and alone due to his choices Did I enjoy this story? Yes Would I read more by this author? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley and the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

  • Wonderful story!

    A wonderful feel good story! It’s a novella that you can read is one sitting. Being near Christmas, Hector has travelled to the Vynes to meet up with his sister and her husband, his best friend. Being the only guest there and his host is totally ignoring him, He takes to window watching waiting for his sister arrival. The carriage that finally pulls up has a woman and young child disembark, which peaks his curiosity. Ruby is widowed and lives with her in-law’s and young son Pip. Her father-in-law decides he is tired of the burden of Ruby and has arranged a marriage, but will keep Pip. With help from her mother-in-law she escapes to her uncle’s. There she makes a deal with her uncle to keep Pip safe. Meeting Hector they realize they knew each other as children and a friendship is renewed. Of course her uncle has other plans for Ruby. There are few couple of mysteries, a lot of story in so few pages! I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story.

    Thanks for your feedback!
