I thought I'd step away from my usual reading to try some romance. This collection comprises six novellas by six different best-selling writers

Rome for the Holidays by Judy Angelis
Set in New Orleans, this romance features self-made woman Arie , who co-owns a catering company, and Rome Milano, CEO of a multinational corporation from Italy. Their romance moves quickly after they caught each others' eyes at a function Arie's company catered for Rome's.

I haven't read all the stories in this boxset but here's my thoughts on those I did.

Judy Angelo - really lovely and fluffy little story. It was good read but would I read this author again *shrugs shoulders* maybe! .......3 Stars

Melody Anne - I didn't like the H as he came across as complete scumbag....Don't think I would rush to read another written by author! ......2 Stars

Kathleen Brooks - I enjoyed story but it was far too short. This comes from the new Women Of Power series. The ending just

These authors are amazing!

The only dislike I could say about this book is that they're all combinations of series and they start like in the middle or the beginning and the don't have the complete book. Even though they start in the middle or the beginning and don't have the complete books they are still freaking fantastic. I love each of these books individually just as much as I love the authors. I would recommend this book to anyone especially considering you can get it for such a low price a

really liked some of the books & others not too much. I like novella collections but I think I'd rather have 2 full length books in one books instead of 5 or 6 smaller ones. I don't like the ones where they leave you hanging because they are a part 1 to a 3-5 part series. I enjoyed the last book in the collection Half Of my Heart but was disappointed that it was the 1st in a series & I have not intentions of buying the rest right now.

This series of Novella's was well worth my .99 cents and then some. I loved loved this box set. I was introduced to 5 new authors and loved them all!! You won't be disappointed with these authors! The other authors which I adore spun into new stories or dug deeper into other story lines.

"Talk about sexy as sin.... Arie Angelis is floored when she lays eyes on the handsome hunk seated at the head tab at the holiday event she's catering. Rome Milano is used to

This is what you call a deal of a lifetime - you have 8 blockbuster authors exhibiting their works!
I have read most of these authors works. Some are new and through this collection I was able to find them and now am a follower.

Judy Angelo - Rome for the Holidays
Features sexy Italian - Roman. A story of love at first sight

Melody Anne - Holiday Treasure : An Anderson series novella
A touching story of walking a mile in someone else's shoes. Not to take things for granted. A humbling story.

story and it was amazing and with a special guest in it .. then Lynn Raye Harris , Shandonna Richards
and Danielle Stewart was all the first time reads for me .. which I will be reading more from this authors
The only thing stopping me from giving this more stars is the book my Shadonna Richards (I think that is her name) It was awful but I enjoyed the other books. Kathleen Brooks, Melody Anne and Judy Angelo and Ruth Cardello all had great novellas in this collection. Looking forward to continuing those series. The book by Shadonna Richards was more of a stream of conscious account with very little dialogue, no real plot and on character development. Sadly her book reflects badly on the rest of the ...more

This is an eight book collection. All I can say is the books stayed true to it's name Hot, Sexy & Bad. The novella's were all surrounded by the Christmas holiday and I loved it. Each book dealt with either finding love, rekindling old love. I would recommend this collection to everybody. Some of the books were extension to books I have read or the start of a new series which I can't wait to continue reading. I wanted more when I was done reading each novella. That's the way it's suppose to b ...more

Only Three Novellas have been very entertaining to read . The first is Holiday Treasure by Melody Anne, the main characters Tanner & Kyla were fun and had me laughing. Next dancing beneath the mistletoe was the most romantic and hot story. The author Kathleen Brooks have weaved magic with Drake and Elle instant attraction. The last but not the least is Sandra Marton's The Gift where a heir to the Throne is turned into a finance wiz and is entrusted the task of accompanying Katie. Lovely roma ...more

The Gift by Sandra Marton

This is the first book I have read in the collection. Kaz, who discovered at a young age that his father was the son of the King of Sardovia, is hired to escort Katie to Sardovia to marry a man she has never met. After a rocky beginning, Kaz and Katie fall in love and try to find a way to get her out of the marriage. This is a wonderful story. I highly recommend this collection of short stories.

What a wonderful set of Novellas to put you in the holiday spirt. I'll admit I bought it originally for Ruthie book is was about characters in the Legacy series. I was pleasantly surprised with the other books and have found new authors to read. Danielle Stewarts clover series left you hanging but part 2 is now out. All the authors did a beautiful job. If you haven't bought order it. You won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed the Christmas theme of this box set. I loved some of the stories more than others in this set. I loved how this set introduced me to authors I never heard of. I'm looking forward to reading series by Lynn Raye Harris & Shadonna Richards. I also wanna read more books by Sandra Marton.

Kathleen Brooks, Dancing Beneath the Mistletoe was the reason I bought the series. It was ok, but really? They fell in love after just a couple hours and a one night stand? And now they want to be together forever?

I enjoyed each of the various novellas that were included in this book. Some of my favorite authors were included. All in all, this is a good read! Great to read when you are short on time as you can read a novella at a time.

One of the best boxed sets ever!
Each novella is unique in its own way but all are heartwarming, touching and unforgettable. They give you a feel-good moment when reading the books. The authors are great and the books are marvelous! Definitely a boxed set you wouldn't want to miss.

Loved the collection with the exception of 'Half my heart' which left us on a cliff hanger. It wasn't that it was bad it was just that I didn't appreciate the ending.

My favourite being by Ruth Cardello as I had read other Andrades stories. Maddie s story does not disappoint.
