Castle Hill was, like, the PERFECT novella. It overlapped events in other books in the series (and, therefore, we see characters we know from those other books too), and enriched and added so much to Joss and Braden's story at the same time. It packed a powerful, emotional punch in a short package.

Castle Hill takes us from Braden's proposal through the wedding and honeymoon and into the weeks following. We've seen bits of this story in On Dublin Street, Down London Road and in the upcoming Before Jamaica Lane, and now they're all coming together to paint this tumultuous and romantic picture.

It only took me a few hours to read the entire thing, and I was completely lost in the story the entire time. The best part about Castle Hill is that it knocked Braden down from the pedestal on which I had set him. Trust me - that's a good thing. Guys that are too damn perfect are a fallacy - they don't exist, and therefore make stories seem less believable. For once, Joss isn't the one to make some bad choices. I was so mad at Braden for a good half of the story, and I LOVED THAT. It humanized him and made him come to life even more. Now - NOW - Braden really is the perfect guy. Bravo, Samantha Young.

The only problem with Castle Hill is, it left me wanting even more!! :)

    The blurb for this story caught my attention so I just had to read this novella even though I had never read any other Joss and Braden stories prior to this. I'm so happy that I went with my instincts because I believe I just discovered a fabulous new author to me and a list of stories to read. Braden is a fantastic hero I wish I could find someone just like him for myself. I really felt a connection with Joss and loved how serious this short story was. The supporting cast is great and I cannot wait to read the preceding stories so that I can learn more about them. I loved Joss's best friend and the fact that she is also Braden's sister makes her that more interesting but her personality is definitely a winner and I'm so glad I got to meet her. If you are looking for an entertaining and emotional read than this is one to pick up.

    Short but sweet

    Though I know this is a novella I wish there was more. I really love braden and jocelyn, their relationship seems more realistic full of real internal conflicted emotions that anybody can relate. These are the type of stories that I get sucked into, very pleased!
