This review would just be too long to write it all out here. I suggest clicking the link honestly.

These books were all pretty awesome! And it's only 0.99 cents right now for them!

I was inlove 4 times! Awesome collection from 4 great Regency authors!

I love this story so much! A great opening indeed. Dark and very brooding Brandon Haverton is such a man to fall for. I also liked Mariah's personality as very cheerful and honest. Their hesitations with each other were very exciting and the ending is just perfect. Nadine Millard had made another perfect and magical love story that every fan would love!

Charming! I am in love with Lord C

A wonderful box set - I have read most of Kelly Martin's books but I hadn't read anything by the other authors before but will now after enjoying them in this set.

A Winter Wish-By Nadine Millard

Mariah is generally happy with her lot in life but her life is set to change when she accepts a job cataloguing books at the new home of Mr. Brandon Haverton. The pair bump heads but sparks also fly between them. Will a winter storm bring them together or force them apart.

For the Love of a Lady -By Krist
Honest? The descriptive blurbs for the first two reads were more interesting and better written than the stories themselves. I just could not connect with these stories.
The cover (beautiful) and a the read in the Renwick House series by Rachel Van Dyken is what made me do it. I really was hoping that the title held some truly interesting and FORBIDDEN tales.
And my rating has nothing to do with it being identified as a "clean" historical romance.
I have enjoyed MANY reads over the years that ther

While I enjoyed the first and fourth stories, the middle 2 were so bad that it ruined the book for me. Will be deleting from my library.

Brandon and Mariah's story was that of instant passion and true faith for one another.Connected from the moment they set eyes on eachother...the rest was history!Such a sweet story that warms the heart!

A beautiful story where one man, Cross, would go to any amount of trouble to win the heart of the woman he has loved in secret his entire life - Essie.Loved these two sexy yet oooh so feisty characters!!!

I love historical romance, Rachel Van Dyken and these Regency Authors. All of these stories are well written, smart, witty and packed with emotion. This box set has an intriguing mix of characters and story lines, but I enjoyed them all!

Good except for the 2nd (I believe)'ll know it when you read it. Very much about jealousy and not love. Ended up reading a lot of the other authors' books. So it served it's purpose as an intro to new, to me, authors.

I enjoyed the first, second and fourth stories. I didn't even try the third story as I heard it was very dark and I don't like those types of stories. The second one was my favorite as it was more lighthearted.

I enjoyed these stories but I do much prefer a novel to a short story.
But as a short story goes I did enjoy and this has reawaken my interest in regency novels

“childhood never truly leaves you. Maybe your physical body grows into what society deems acceptable, but those dreams, the itches you get to do something adventurous and dangerous never die. If anything, they are more intense in their drive, for the minute you decide to give in to the immaturity that plagued you when you were small, you are able to be free, to laugh, and to fly.” 0 likes
