To Challenge The Earl of Cravenswood by Bronwen Evans ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A pure historical romance as only Ms Evans could pen. This is book 3 of the Wicked Wages Trilogy.

Henry St. Giles, the Earl of Cravenwood, was far from prepared to become an Earl but upon the death of his older brother the title was bestowed on him. Henry wanted to marry for love not like his parents loveless marriage.

In one of his drunken stoopers he finds himself in his garden. As he falls to the ground a beautiful woman comes to his aid. He makes improper advances on her and she reciprocates her mutual feelings. He inexplicably says the name of his former mistress. The mystery woman in his arms runs away. However, she has lost an earring and Henry makes it his mission to find her.

This book takes you on his journey for his mystery woman and for his love. This short story was full with interesting and life like characters. I would highly recommend this book. Ms Evans is a great story teller and never disappoints her readers.

A Kiss for Miss Kingsley written by Collette Cameron ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
When Olivia Kingsley agrees to attend a ball at the Viscount and Viscountess Wimpleton's mansion her only thoughts are to be able to see Allen Wimpleton their son.

Three years ago their budding romance was severed by her father insisting she travel with him to the Islands for a year. Allen wanted Olivia to elope even though they only knew each other for a short time. Olivia chose to leave with her father and asked Allen to wait for her. He said they were finished which broke her heart.

Although, one year became three Olivia pined for Allen. This book is adorable the way it builds up to their remeeting and discovering their love is still as intense and true.

A brief novella but fully packed with a complete story.

A Highwayman's Honor written by Michelle McClean ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A group of Highway bandits wait for their unsuspecting prey. The carriage carries Lord Harding's wealth as well as is wife and daughter Elizabet.
During the robbery Elizabet is shot and her fathers carriage bolts away leaving her on the ground. Lord John Ramsay, the leader of the masked gunmen, decides to care for her wound. He brings her to a cottage and takes care of her for a week.

During her recovery period things heat up between but are never really addressed. When she returns home she pines for her masked highwayman.

Weeks later Elizabet attends a ball and recognizes him as Lord John Ramsay. At this point, the story becomes a true give and take unrequited love tale. This is a romance novel at its best. Hats off to Ms McClean for her full satisfying story in a short novella.

I have received this book for an honest review. I have read 3 of the 9 stories they were terrific.
