Two down, and both are fantastic!


Miss Rachel Lindsay, who previously had worked as a maid in an orphanage, has been politely sent to occupy the same position in a posh household. The coach trip had not been the most pleasant, but a stop at a small inn is a welcome respite for Rachel. And so, Rachel finds herself stranded in the middle of nowhere on December 24, with little hope of some transportation for the time being. Arran Elliot, the new Marquess of Kyle,

Yuletide Yielding by Ashe Barker

Professionally written and completely captivating, “Yuletide Yielding” brings the Viking Holiday season to life with vivid imagery as well as heart pounding suspense. The story flows seamlessly building upon the relationship between a completely endearing heroine and one hot, dominant Viking who is compelled to fulfill an obligation rather than follow his heart. The scheming, treachery and deception of a malicious Viking bride-to-be further e

What a line up of excellent authors in this set of novellas. I have only read four so far but enjoyed them all.
The Night Before Scandal 5*
I loved the character of Alexandra, she had a scientific mind and loved experimenting. She was forward thinking for a lady of her time. Harry was equally a likeable character. They are found together in a scandalous position. But will Alexandra marry him, she wants a love match. A very entertaining read.

Mistletoe Mistress by Nicola Davidson was an absolute delight. Arran and Rachel together sizzled off the page…then set it on fire *fans self* Arran thought he had his future all mapped out, until Rachel, with her lush curves and innocent frankness, save them both from the tight spot they’d found themselves in. He’s drawn to Rachel immediately, she fascinates him and it doesn’t take long for him to realize she’s the submissive of his dreams. For Rachel, Arran is the kind of man she never thought ...more

Amazing! Sixteen authors, each with a story a Holiday story that will entertain you for many hours!
Strong heroes from Marquess to Dukes and the beautiful heroines fill these stories of romance, strong passions, scandals and true love.

Be prepared for a steamy romance that will hold you captive until the end. Minerva and Tristan had known each other a long time. In fact she had been married to his best friend who had perished over two years ago. Always ready

With her signature seductive writing Amy Rose Bennett takes readers on a wonderful holiday fling full of racy interludes and unexpected love in My Lady of Misrule. Sir Tristan King brings a wickedly appealing hero to the pages that is well matched with the hidden gem of Minerva Lady Harlow. Their mutual attraction and ensuing sparks were well written by Ms. Bennett who did an excellent job of blending history, adventure, sensuality and yearning.

THE NIGHT BEFORE SCANDAL BY SCARLETT SCOTT -I really enjoyed this story - it was short but there was so much packed into the pages & you really did have time to get to know Harry & Alexandra. They fell in love at first sight (unbeknownst to them) but they soon realized the magnetism between themselves & it was a good thing since he compromised her & they were being semi-forced into marriage. I loved the delightful descriptions Scarlett does of the Christmas snowy weather, skating ...more

Seduced Under the Mistletoe is a wonderful collection of stories. My favorite is Master of the Moor by Emmanuelle de Maupassant. She has woven a tale that is full of secrets, mystery, and a few very delightful surprises. The relationship between Lord Mallon and Genevieve was like watching a chess game. Each move was measured and outwitted by the next move.

My Lady of Misrule by Amy Rose Bennett
Have your fan ready with this one. That spark had been hidden deep in both of them until a conversation and kiss under the mistletoe ignited it. They were made for each other and didn't know it. They had many interesting lessons that made their feelings strong and known. I loved how they didn't play games and understood each other. I wasn't expecting him to pop up during the show, but that just brought them together.

When I saw that some of my favorite authors had steamy and romantic Christmas stories in one volume, I rushed out to purchase it. So far I have only read Master of the Moor by Emmanuelle de Maupassant and it is worth the purchase by itself. Prepare to be transported back to Victorian England on the infamous moors, full of atmosphere, legends, mystery, passion and so much romance. I love that Emmanuelle writes about strong, independent and experienced women who have learned that women in that era ...more

A mixed bag of historical Christmas novellas. Some more erotic than others. I originally bought this for the novella by Nicola Davidson, which I really enjoyed.

I enjoyed the majority of the stories, and have discovered some new must read authors!

This is not, in my view, a Christmas anthology. Admittedly, I did not read every story. I read two of them and skimmed a few pages of another few.
It was enough for me to recognise that this is a set of stories that give little emphasis to a Christmas theme and total emphasis to tales that involve brutish and sadistic men who demand sex without consent, see nothing wrong with whipping, caning and beating the masochistic women they control (and idiotic women, at that, whose quims quiver as they m

Master of the Moor~

I always become engrossed in this author's work. The setting took me right into the story immediately. The struggles Mallon suffered through regarding trusting women. And Genevieve, who was looking for validation and security. They both wanted to love, and they found it set amongst the misty moors. I couldn't put it down until my eyes got heavy. Spellbinding story!

Novella with an erotic touch!

There are 16 novellas in the 'Seduced Under the Mistletoe' set, but I only had time to read Amy Rose Bennett's novella 'My Lady of Misrule'.

This novella had me from the first page since I love stories set during the Regency era. In fact, it's one of my favorite periods. This author never disappoints me! It tells the story of friends who became lovers!

Two years ago, Minerva became a widow, and needs the help of Tristan, her best friend. Both have feelings for each o

Wicked Deed On A winter Night by Stacy Reid

I was supposed to read an other book as I got it for review but I felt upset by the main characters and needed a pause.
This book was perfect, I had it from Seduces Under The Mistletoes anthology but as many bundles, I get them for the deal but never read them.
I loved both characters, they makes things do with what life throw on their path, their love for another never flinches even when they have doubts or are hurt.

It’s that time of the year again! Time to search of Christmas presents, write Christmas cards AND to read and enjoy Christmas romance stories. I LOVE Christmas stories and especially historical Christmas stories, it gives the story something special for me. So when I discovered this anthology, I was very excited about it. Most writers in the anthology were new to me so it was also a great way to discover new writers.

Wow, this took me quite a time to finish - well it does have 16 sizzling, hot, sexy and erotic stories.

My very favourites were from Nicola Davidson, Lauren Smith, Carole Mortimer, Amy Rose Bennett, Em Brown, Viola Morne, Stacey Reid and Scarlett Scott.

The other eight stories were good reading too, but I loved my faves.

Some authors I knew and liked; some are new to me. As the title reveals, the stories are centered around romance at Christmas. Some have more explicit erotic scenes, some have milder sex scenes. A few I could not continue to read as the story / style of writing did not agree with me. Those deserving special mention:

Great collection of historical steamy romances with 15 different authors to test out their writing styles. I found 5 new authors to add to my favorites. I love collections like this because they allow you to try multiple new authors with a quick 30 minute storyline that shows off their flair with minimal effort and without having to commit to a full book.

I love Christmas stories and love Regency Period romance tales. No surprise that I was delighted to get my hands on Seduced Under the Mistletoe: 16 Sizzling Novellas. Several of these are by authors I’ve enjoyed before, so I fully anticipate that they are the Christmas-themed “Passionate Historical Romances” promised by kindle. Indeed, that is certainly the case with the first that I’ve read, Ellie St. Clair’s Duke of Christmas. A perfect second chance romance that’s perfectly set into a Christm ...more
