    A very special treat!

    What a treat! Three wonderful romances by the incomparable Collette Cameron! Olivia Kingsley is back in London after spending three years in the Tropics, dragged away by her eccentric father. Just before learning she would have to leave England, Allen Wimpleton had asked her to marry him, and when told, he gives Olivia an ultimatum: they elope and get married, or else they’re done. Olivia leaves with her family, heartbroken because Allen would not wait the one year the trip was initially supposed to last. Having no reason to remain in the Caribbean, Olivia needs to see Allen at least once more, so she and her brother Bradford arrive at a haut Ton function uninvited, so Olivia can see Allen and maybe get to understand why he acted the way he did. But upon setting eyes on him, Olivia remembers why she had been so infatuated with Allen, and he with her, but how can the damage be undone? Collette Cameron’s A KISS FOR MISS KINGSLEY is a wink of a story! For a short story, the characters are admirably well defined, and I was wishing to know more about Bradford, because he’s irresistible! The banter between Bradford and Olivia and Bradford’s Aunt Muriel is priceless; it felt so natural, while being playful and funny. The prose is refined, light and sparkling like the best champagne. The descriptions are wonderfully vivid and at times quite hilarious. A KISS FOR MISS KINGSLEY is utterly charming, perfectly romantic; it’s a story that will leave you feeling happy and content! I swear Collette Cameron nearly gave me a fit of the vapours with HER SCANDALOUS WISH! Philomena Pomfrett must marry as quickly as possible; her brother Giles has a fragile heart which could give out any day, and they are almost out of funds. Things look grim as Philomena was severely burned in a fire years before, where her parents died. The love of her life, Bradford, now Viscount Kingsley, vanished; she never heard from him, and Philomena’s heart was shattered. And so, trying to choose the less repulsive of the present suitors, who should be attending the Wimpleton’s ball, but Bradford. This novella is grandiose! The story is extremely complex and fabulously compelling, there are plot twists every few pages, nothing happened the way I expected; at some places, I thought my heart would break. And what about the sumptuous, luminous, exquisite prose! Ms. Cameron is a wordsmith beyond compare! Every word is perfectly chosen, everything absolutely in context, the dialogues are glorious, there are a few quite humorous touches! Sublime! I received a complimentary copy of these books in exchange for an honest review. As for BRIDE OF FALCON, I haven’t read it yet, but why should it be any less than 5 stars given Collette Cameron’s storytelling skills and superlative writing! I’m looking forward to another fabulous read!

    Terrific 1st Three Books in the Series

    A Kiss for Miss Kingsley Collette Cameron offers some very witty comments - had me laughing! Long ago love that never died. Unsure of her reception Olivia agrees to her aunt's "addlepated" scheme to show up uninvited to a ball where her love unattached love will be attending. Will he give her the cut direct or does he still love her. Allen thinks he knows who he plans on making his bride until his long ago love shows up unannounced at the ball he's attending. Has she come to rub it in that she refused him all those years ago or does she still love him. Only "problem" with this SHORT story...it was TOO short! :-) Collette delivers as always!!!! Bride of Falcon Six years = five seasons. Five long seasons for Ivonne Wimpleton to accept that she is an undesirable. Six long years to realize & accept that the one man she has loved since she was 15 does not love her. Six long years - that's how long Chancy Faulkenhurst, Falcon, has been away from England. Six years since he's seen the one girl he wants for a wife, one that whose father refused him six years ago. Now he's home, poor & disfigured, with little prospects to woe the girl he wants & to gain her father's approval. During a house party given by Ivonne's parents she is pursued by a man she has no intention of ever marrying. In running from this man she literally bumps into none other than Falcon. The man she's loved for years, the man she wrote to but never received a letter in return. Why, oh why, has she run into him now when she's finally ready to get on with her life knowing there's no hope with him? And why is her stomach dong flips at the sight & smell of him? Ivy, his Ivy, still so beautiful. But why is she running, why is she afraid? When her would be suitor follows her into the arbor & demands to know why she's in the arms of another man, Chancy realizes what she fears. As the conversation continues it becomes clear this man is not going to give up so Chancy says the first thing that enters his head - Ivy is promised to another. Such a simple statement leads to headaches for all involved when the Prince Regent demands to meet Ivy's intended. As Ivy considers her options Chancy is considering a move to America - he cannot stand to be in England if Ivy is married to another. As the days continue circumstances change. Will Chancy stay in England? Will he propose to Ivy? Will Ivy be able to marry for love or will she have to settle just to make the Prince Regent happy? I'm a huge fan of Collette Cameron's & she never fails to entertain - complete with laughter & tears and Bride of Falcon is no exception. An EXCELLENT read. Her Scandalous Wish Philomena Pomfrett has endured much in her two and twenty years having lost her parents in a fire, a fire which has left her scarred, the betrayal of the love of her life & now her brother is dying from a heart ailment. She would love nothing more than to live a life of solitude but her brother’s dying wish is for her to marry before he passes so he will know she is taken care of. Which is why she is enduring a London season. Waiting in the garden for he brother Philomena escapes further in to avoid a would be suitor only to run into the one man she hoped to never see again. Bradford, Viscount Kingsley, has returned to London after seven long years. Seven years in which he has tried to forget the devastation of losing the only woman he will ever love. At least he thought he had forgotten until he catches a glimpse of a beauty while at a ball that brings it all back. Escaping into the gardens to avoid matchmaking mommas Bradford is captivated by the golden haired beauty making the same wish he has made on a falling star. He feels he should know her. Collette Cameron writes an outstanding novella full of betrayal, heartache, anger, tears and her own unique wit. Ms. Cameron’s ability to draw you into the characters will have you traveling the same roller coaster as Philomena & Bradford. So buckle in for a wonderful 5 star+ ride.

    Terrific Trilogy of Romantic Novellas!

    The first novella in this trilogy, A Kiss For Miss Kingsley, is perfect for the busy reader who wants to read something from start to finish in a short amount of time. And…it has all the required elements for a completely wonderful historical romance: a heroine (Olivia) who feels she must honor her father’s wishes, a hero (Allen) who wants her to honor HIS wishes rather than her father’s, a long separation due to their differences, and a reunification that provides for their happy ever after! A truly sigh-worthy romance. I really enjoyed the second novella in this trilogy, Bride of Falcon. It had all the necessary ingredients for a sweet romance, including a villain, interfering royalty, a wounded hero, a vulnerable heroine, the gossipy ton, and a surprising investment turned into wealth. Chaz (Falcon) and Ivy waited six long years to get their happy-ever-after ending, but get it they did! The third novella in this trilogy, Her Scandalous Wish, is Bradford and Philomena's story, a truly sigh-worthy second chance romance! Bradford returns to England thinking his childhood love (Philomena) was dead from a fire and has to woo her all over again when he discovers her still alive(!) and living with her ailing brother.
