When I discovered that three of my all-time favorite authors of historical romance were writing stories with a central theme, I was overjoyed. After reading their compelling creations, I have been introduced to spirited characters and entertained by a trio of original storylines. I never doubted for one instant that the imaginative developments were not real, as details seem so accurate while individuals have such credible behavior. Each novella held my full attention, and I could not stop readi ...more

I enjoyed all these stories but especially the first one. A Christmas Abduction:
Caroline adbducts Adam. She believes he is a rake and has ruined her sister. I thought this story was the most realistic. At the end the I understood how dark the villian's plans had been and happily his unveiling was a surprise to me and occured in virtually the last chapter.

The second story: A Perfect Match reminded me a bit of Cyrano de Bergerac. The hero needs an heiress the heroine is hiding her wealt

The first story by Madeline Hunter had everything I love in a romance: a strong, caring heroine, a hero who is in want of a better future, a villain, great supporting characters and a slow build to passion. Caroline has abducted Baron Thornhill with the purpose of having him do the gentlemanly thing: marry her pregnant sister. There are two flaws in this plan; one being Caroline and Thornhill are attracted to each other. Thornhill admires Caroline for keeping her father's horse business going de ...more

I like these authors, however these stories while decent introductions to the quality these authors attain, did not make these re-reads for me. All were a bit predictable, and other qualities (writing, plot, characters) did not balance these out. Not DIKs.

A Christmas Abduction by Hunter - This made me go back and read Jo Beverley's "My Lady Notorious" which I highly recommend if you like this. I enjoyed this short story, but found the hero's attitude toward the heroine a little unbelievable and

3 of the best Romance Writers! 3 fabulous stories. These stories have several things in common. They all take place at Christmas time. They are all novellas and in the last 2 stories they follow the last story in the series the authors are in the middle of.
Many times in novellas, I feel as if I'm coming in at the middle of a story and then it feels like it rushes to a conclusion. That was not the case here. These stories all had a beginning, a middle and an end. They were so well written that th

During the holidays, love is very much possible, new love and old love. All three authors each give a delightful tale about finding love. Through kidnappings, whether intended or not, each par discovered what they had been missing. Love develops and love returns, though the past can be difficult to escape and overcome. Forgiveness and understanding go hand in hand, for Christmas is the time for miracles. Each man wants to seduce his lady, for she is the only woman they could see spending the res ...more

A collection of novellas written by three seasoned and celebrated historical romance authors?
How can you go wrong?

Each novella is different, and loosely related by "snow", and provides an evening of good, if forgettable entertainment, with engagingly written characters, and stories that will transport you for an evening.

It also provides a teaser snapshot into other works in the authors backlist, or to be released pile, whetting the appetite of stories yet to be devoured.

Three short stories with a Christmastime theme by well loved authors. All were different, but had the theme of misunderstandings between the Hero and Heroine some recent and some past. All the characters were likeable and the stories enjoyable. I, especially, loved the cat theme in the last novella. 3-1/2 stars. Thank you NetGalley for giving me this ARC for my honest opinion.

Three queens of Regency romance give us three tales of snowy wintertime attraction and seduction. It is always a pleasure to read these ladies' stories. Each presents lively characters, interesting situations, and stumbling blocks on the road to happily ever after.
