I was granted a review copy through Netgalley by the publisher and now I am reading this bundle of novellas one at a time.
I will update my review with each new performed read.

Cheryl Bolen

Blurb: To reach the only person who ever offered help after her husband’s death, destitute Charlotte Hale must travel with her children on the coldest night in a generation—with a handsome stranger she prays she can trust.

My review :
It is not so long I read a tale by Mrs Cheryl Bolen. This one

Although the WINTER WISHES anthology releases in October, I thought it could prove refreshing to read Holiday stories when it's so hot outside. I'm reading as time permits, and as it appears the novellas are not interconnected, I'm reading all out of sequence.

Invitation to Pleasure by Bronwen Evans
Newmarket, England, December 15 th 1814

Daniel Kerrich, Baron de Winter, had been invited to his brother-in-law's for Christmas. Daniel doesn't like fancy occasions, he'd rather be with his horses and

Winter Wishes 5*
A lovely selection of stories written by some well loved authors.
One Room at the Inn by Cheryl Bolen
This was an enjoyable read. I liked the characters, Charlotte was trying to be the best mother to her two children, Susan and Eddie. I did chuckle at some of Eddie’s antics. Philip Fenton is an honourable man who tries to do the best for the family. A snow storm means they have to stay at the inn for a few days. They get to know each other much better in all sorts of ways!

So I started this anthology with the intention of just reading a few of the offerings and writing my review based on those – I read Lana Williams, Collette Cameron & Bronwen Evans and I am hooked!

Unfortunately, I don’t have time to read all 13 novellas and review them by release day – so I am going to post this and then revisit it later this year when my reading schedule thins and I can do justice to this collection.

For the price - $0.99 on Amazon as of today – you cannot beat this set – I read
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Winter Wishes A Regency Holiday Romance Anthology Box Set has over 800 pages and 12 different stories by different authors. I am crazy about this set because it has all my favorite authors in addition to the Christmas feel good stories. Box sets are great when looking for new authors or for just reconnecting with your favorite authors. Of course Christmas theme romances just warm the heart. I highly recommend this set.
Here are the books that you get with a previous posted theme story lines.

If you’re like me and love Regency romances set during the holidays, you’re going to love this anthology. Thirteen brand-new romances by some of today’s bestselling and award-winning Regency authors.

To get 13 stores for this low price is a real bargain, for them to be good stories by good authors is a wonderful steal. These stories will remind you of Christmas Love and Hope. I did not read all the stories so far, but I will tell you about the few I did read.
One Room at the Inn by Cheryl Bolen is a nice story of a widow who loved her children and is down on her luck and is running out of money, and a man who made a promise to a friend. Philip and Charlotte meet and do not know who each other

The Earl from Christmas Past by Wendy Vella
Love this regency short story. It is hilarious and adventurous. Maddie has such a huge and loving heart but she is indeed upfront & feisty, love that. She challenges him and quickly has him entangled. They are perfect for one another, I thoroughly enjoyed their story and I am glad they got a chance to rekindle their friendship because they are perfect for one another. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.

Collection of stories like this are a fantastic way to read authors you haven't come across before.

Winter Wishes with Cheryl Bolen, Bronwen Evans, Lana Williams, Bree Wolf, Collette Cameron, Heather Boyd, Sasha Cottman, Samantha Grace, Donna Cummings, Barbara Monajem, Suzanna Medeiros, Wendy Vella, and Alina K.

I highly recommend this collection of stories by experienced authors to all historical romance fans. The stories are not inter-related, but some connect with one of the author's series (e.g. Collette Cameron's contribution). I've read other stories by all of the authors; the quality and style is consistent with their other works. At a preorder price of 99cents for the ebook, it is a bargain.

Cheryl Bolen's story, One Room at the Inn, most closely reflects the spirit of Christmas as Philip aids th

Thirteen lovely Christmassy stories published here in one anthology. Wow!
Let me tell you that it was really difficult to decide which to read first but then I decided that it really didn't matter and plunged in....
These are short and sweet romances that build up nicely and end with a happily-ever-after and I loved each and every one!
I am not going to attempt to choose a favorite here - let some other brave soul try to do that, but I would like to recommend this anthology as a pre Christmas treat

This Christmas anthology put me in the holiday spirit. All of the historical romances are filled with characters that draw you in, and take you on a romantic ride filled with hope and love. The authors make the settings come alive through descriptions that make you feel the wintry weather in the stories. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good historical romance, or looking for a new author. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

I love Christmas romances, they're probably one of my favourite things and I loved most of these stories. They may not have all appealed to me but there were a few good enough in there to make up for the not so good ones. I'd definitely recommend this book, especially for anyone who is an absolute ducker for a Christmas romance. 3 stars. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. ...more

Such good value !
A collection of Christmas stories to get you in the mood for the coming festivities.
This is a good way to find new authors. All the stories are good reads, with some very good. Two really good ones are Collette Cameron 's story and Samantha Grace's.
I already read Collette Cameron 's books but I shall enjoy finding all of Samantha Grace's and a few other authors in this collection.
