Meet the Author

When Aileen Fish was eight or nine, she told the mom next door that she wanted to be a writer, but she hated writing her stories down. At twelve, she wrote her first novel after reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Well, she wrote most of it. That writing it down part got in the way again.

Aileen's early works as an adult included a parallel-world Young Adult fantasy based on Native American mythology, which she wrote with the help of Ray Faraday Nelson in the Writer's Digest Novel Writing Workshop. Her short fiction at that time was primarily dark fantasy, and her first sale was "Saturday Night" in the Summer 1991 issue of After Hours magazine.

Obviously, Aileen has trouble remaining in the real world. Even as she ventured into romance, there was always a paranormal twist. She has tamed the inner beasts and demons into short periods of submission which allow traditional historical romances to escape onto the page. Oh, and she no longer has that problem with finishing a story. Now, it's a matter of finishing fast enough for the next hero to get his turn.

This left me wanting more. The characters and plot were well developed, but I would have liked to see the book go further. I even looked to see if there was another book which followed this one.

SHORT - SWEET - NO SEX! I knew this was going to be a very short Novella but I truly had hoped for an Epilogue, but there isn't one, so warned. The main character's tell everyone they never want to marry, then in a matter of a few pages, everything changes. But, the story is sweet, the book is free, so you have nothing to lose. (ljb)

Title: A Bride For Christmas Author: Aileen Fish Published: A.F. Age Recommended: New Adult - Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Review: "A Bride For Christmas" by Aileen Fish was a beautiful told romantic historical short story. "A Bride For Christmas" was what you can call a 'sweet and clean read.' The two main characters Nash and Julianna were well delivered, developed and oh so colorful. I did enjoy how this author was able to bring out many all of the descriptive details in this good read. We find both Nash and Julianna are surrounded by 'happily wedded siblings, with their children and even their parents who loved each other'....could this happen to them? It seems like the heroine wasn't interested in marriage but how about this hero? This is where I say you must pick up this good read to see for yourself how this author will bring it all out to the reader. It will be a beautiful as well as a delightful twist that will leave a smile on your face. Would I recommend? Yes!

A free 60 page story of a second son returning from the Napoleanic war to celebrate Christmas at a family house party on their estate, and the unexpected chance of romance. A very proper English courtship. A very well-written story with an excerpt to another English romance attached.

It was a pretty good short story. Kind of predictable but it was still good. Reminded me of a Lifetime movie. You know what's going to happen but you have to watch it anyway!

That says it all. 45 pages into it; I decided I could not torture myself any more.

60 pages; very well written. I liked the main characters and their families. The love story seems complete, and not rushed. I would have liked the hero to surprise the heroine with an extensive exotic honeymoo though, as he knw how much she wanted to travel.
