Rose and Will come from two different worlds. Rose is a lady and Will is a lowly groom, but they unite in their love of animals and in their efforts to save Rose from her incredibly abusive husband. Unfortunately, I didn't end up liking Rose as much as I should have. She was overly formal, even after her and Will became close. It had a very swet ending though.
The Blacksmith's Son:
This was a great one. Ally has been hiding out as a boy in order to escape from the false accusations of theft from her former employer. When Captain Quentin Drake finds out that she is actually a girl, he decides to find out why she is hiding. Their dialog and interactions were great. The only bad spot was a little of the beginning where things worked out a little too perfectly.
The Earl's Christmas Colt:
This was such a cute story. I loved the emotion Rebecca Thomas was able to explore in such a small novella. Lady Arabella isn't your typical noblewoman, she would rather be out riding her horse than try to find a husband. It's a good thing that Oliver Westwyck, her betrothed, ends up being just as much a horse lover. They meet for the first time and they don't know who the other is at first. Arabella mistakes him for a horse breeder.
I'm not a big fan of intential mistaken identity storylines, but the way this one plays out is quite humorous. It was a great Christmas story.
Christmas Past is a sweet time travel romance. When Sydney finds herself stuck in 1810 after her time machine breaks, she must make a tough decision on what to do next. Unfortunately (or maybe on the bright side) Miles has found her secret. He takes her under his wing and talks her into waiting until after Christmas to make a final decision on her fate.
Of course the romance follows very quickly and it is a very sweet one. A very feel good style of romance with one really good explosion (literally). I also liked how the author handled the issues of multiple time lines and changing the future. She had a lot figured out for such a short novella.
