Book Review


Three Regency tales of festive wishes come true…
Captain Grey had been fighting malarial fever in Savannah when he met Theodora Winnings. He proposed by letter – but it’s taken ten years to receive her reply. The answer was ‘yes’! – but is she still free to become his Christmas bride?
Faith Strickland’s plan to marry to save her family backfires when notorious rake James Foley sets out to break her unhappy engagement. He’ll storm her twelfth night celebrations and scorch her into surrender!
Lonely Diana Fleming knows handsome knights don't really exist. But can a festive kiss from the man she loves reawaken her frozen heart?

My Review

Normally I would normally do a long review, but because there are three books, I thought I would just write a little on each book.

Captain Grey's Christmas Proposal by Carla kelly

This is a new author to me.  I was a little disappointed with the book.  For me there was nothing to say it was Christmas and it didn't feel I was reading a regency book.

The book was mainly set in America and I think that's why I didn't get the regency feel.  If you've read this author before then you will like this short story. 

Her Christmas Tempation by Christine Merrill

This is another new author for me. For this book had the right balance of romance and the Christmas theme ran through the book.

I loved the chemistry between the hero and heroine.  The heroine's sisters were a joy to read and I hope at some point get their own story.  If you are a fan of this author then you are going to like this book.

Awakening his Sleeping Beauty by Janice Preston

As you know I love the hero's in Janice's books and that includes this one.  This book was a joy to read, I loved the hero and I so wanted to give the heroine a big cuddle.

The hero's brothers and sisters were adorable and I hope they get their own story.  The heroine's mother is very demanding and early in the book I did feel some sympathy for her, but as I continued to read, I really wanted to tell her to leave her poor daughter alone. 

I loved this book from start to finish and out of all the books this one is my favourite.

I will give this book 4/5 stars, that's because for me the first book didn't have the Christmas feel to it.

I received this ARC from the author in return for a honest review.
