Ava Stone's On the Way to the Castle, finds twins Lily and Amelia on the way to their great uncle's home, who is a notorious matchmaker. Lily is ready to accept Danby's recommendation for a match, but Amelia is determined to fight because she is in love with another. But fate steps in with an overturned coach containing some handsome gentlemen and it seems uncle may not have to step in at all!
Love everything by Ava Stone and this is no exception! The perfect romance that warms the heart.
How hard could that be? Well very when he finds the young lady has set out on her own and he has the devil of a time tracking her down! Only able to secure a horse, he is taking in by a stranger in their coach and the chase begins. Or is it already over?
A lovely story of a feisty woman who cares nothing for society's strictures and finds a handsome man may just be her match. Having been enamored by a scoundrel she does not know he was! He just wants to get much needed funding for a bridge and the Duke made an offer he could not refuse. The key was to distract her, but is seems more is coming of it as he spends time with beautiful Judith. Prepare to be enchanted and only wanting to read more from these authors! Klaudia J, Librarian. Now I need to read all of the authors books. I have not read any of the Duke of Danby series!
This was a great introduction and a perfect holiday read. I have read books by all three authors and love them all! It was like a small gift : I think it is pretty unique that it is a Duke who is playing matchmaker in each of these stories. There was something bold in each of the women and it was fun to see it unfold. I love the friendships and connections and particularly how everyone tried to avoid their matchmaking turn with the Duke of Danby.
The settings are romantic in all of the stories and the suitors are all swoon worthy in their own ways. I think in real life I would probably fall for Affie.http://torosuk.com/libraries/2020-07-12/dyt-iphone-6s-plus.php
A Season of Love
He is currently my book boyfriend. This was a really good choice to read during the holidays. Fun, sexy, romantic I loved the book! Laurie M, Reviewer. I hadn't read anything by any of these three authors before, so I was excited to give this collection a shot.
At the very least, I hoped that reading it would put me in a festive mood just before the holidays. Unfortunately for me, even though this collection is advertised as the first in a series, the stories actually seemed to be follow ups to novellas that were published in previous collections, featuring secondary characters from the earlier stories. That left me feeling a bit lost because there was some background and context missing that probably would have contributed to my enjoyment of the novellas included in this collection.
As it was, I can't say that I would recommend this collection for anyone who hasn't read the earlier, related novellas or who isn't already a fan of these authors. While each of the stories was, for the most part, pleasant, none of them were anything special. There are much better books out there to enjoy in anticipation of the holidays.
Reviewer I was quite pleased with the amusing mix of disguises, mistaken identities, and rescues. If the end had not seemed rushed, I would have given it 5 stars. I love the writing style. The dialogue is nicely witty. I was intrigued and hooked from the very first paragraph. The story takes place in November through December FYI, it is a sweet romance, just kissing.
The heroine and hero were excellent as well. Miss Victoria Eastland is a very independent-minded heiress who grew up in Nassau, Bahamas. After her adopted parents and brother died of natural causes in Nassau, Victoria has journeyed to London to track down her birth parents, although she has mixed feelings about the parents who gave her away. Gavin MacBride is an architect and younger brother of the minor noble who recently married Victoria's birth sister.
Gavin has been sent on a mission to accompany Victoria on the journey to meet her mother and sisters. However, she left before he could pick her up! The hijinx ensue as they manage to meet each other anyway. Gavin is a respectful and intelligent young man who loves his family. He is a great guy. I also really like Victoria, a bold and smart young woman with worries with which I can empathize. I recommend this novella to anyone who wants a sweet, fun, Regency Christmas romance. I received a free advanced reading copy from the publisher via Netgalley, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
Patricia M, Reviewer. I am a fan of the Duke of Danby series. This book adds 3 novellas to the series. I am also a fan of all 3 authors. They did not disappoint in these novellas. These all can be read individually. The only common denominator they have is that they take place at Danby Castle at Christmas. I think the best compliment I can give these authors is that even though these were novellas, I felt like I read a full story. Most times in novellas I feel you are coming in on the middle of the story.
But not in the case of these stories. I'm not going to review each one individually but I'm just going to say I purchased several anthology Christmas books this season and this is the best one I read. Definitely 5 stars. Amber p, Reviewer. I absolutely love this collaboration of stories. Twice Upon a Time. Dearly Beloved. Mary Jo Putney. The Portrait of Lady Wycliff.
