Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
★ 02/15/2014
The Princess of Sensaire is shy and unremarkable, so when Charles Camlann Westfall, the Earl of Bedwyr, reads her diary and finds her sultry and saucy desires—about him—he is suddenly enraptured. With Jacqueline to be married by Christmas, and Cam's great-aunt trying to announce his betrothal by the holidays, what is one confused earl to do? Will this shy princess catch her handsome prince? VERDICT Typical of Ashe, these characters are smoldering, drawn to each other as love and lust lead them on a precarious path to passion. [Xpress Reviews, 12/27/13.]—Judy Taylor Garner, Strayer Univ. Lib., Glen Allen, VA
Elizabeth Boyle
“Kisses, She Wrote is like finding extra chocolate in your Christmas stocking: delightful and perfect. I finished it with tears in my eyes. Yes, it was that good.”
Catherine Bybee
“A perfect holiday delight, Kisses, She Wrote delivers a heartfelt and surprisingly sexy happily ever after for two seemingly mismatched characters. Katharine Ashe has eloquently penned yet another must-read romance. If you’re looking for a short holiday diversion, pick this one up. You won’t be sorry.”
The Romance Reviews
“One of the most romantic stories I’ve read this year … a story that proves why we read romance. A must read! Highly recommended.”
Heroes & Heartbreakers' Top 5 Christmas Romances of 2013
“Different, delightful, and deeply romantic. Few novellas strike me as complete and polished as this one is.”

    I'd been seeing rave reviews for Katharine Ashe for a few year



    I'd been seeing rave reviews for Katharine Ashe for a few years now and I've been meaning to try her ever since and the other day I finally got around to doing so, and now I'm kicking myself because I didn't give her books a go sooner.

    This was a sweet little historical romance that had just enough steam to really round out the story. I enjoyed that this was a love story with a Plain Jane princess (Jacqueline) and a dashingly handsome rogue Cam.

    I liked that Jacqueline was a princess of a made up country but I also liked that she was aware of being plain, but she didn't let it stop her from writing her deepest desires about Cam into her diary. I also think it gave her a bit of an edge because she wasn't like other heroines that use their looks to get what they want, instead she used her brain. I liked seeing her go from being shy around Cam to being really witty in the end and she had me laughing a couple of times.

    Cam was the rogue, but instead of being a real pain in the rear, I found that he was softer, more mellow than the usual historical romance heroes. He wasn't really broody and I thought that he could be very charming, plus I love how he was with Jacqueline.

    As a couple, these two fit together very well and I love how their romance came about with Cam reading about her fantasies in her diary. I thought it was funny how our rogue found himself tongue tied over what her majesty thought and I loved their chemistry. I thought that the author using the diary in the story was genius and a unique way in bringing the couple together in time for the holidays even though they had obstacles to over come but I enjoyed that the book let the characters romance evolve over a couple of months and wasn't an insta-love type read.

    Since this was my first time reading the author I wasn't sure what to expect, especially since this is book 1.5 in the series, but I really think I did the right thing with trying this one out because I feel like I was able to get a good feel for the author's writing style (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the Prince Catchers series in the near future.

    I would recommend Kisses, She Wrote to all fans of Katharine Ashe, historical romance and those who are looking for a light, quit entertaining read about an unlikely couple and their holiday romance. Cam and Jacqueline are sure to make you smile.

    A Perfectly Romantic Christmas Novella!

    I adore this author's work and was not disappointed by this tie-in to the Prince Catchers series.  Characters were remarkably well-developed considering the shorter format.  Emotional and witty.  Highly recommend.

    A sweet holiday novella, Kisses, She Wrote was a wonderful histo

    A sweet holiday novella, Kisses, She Wrote was a wonderful historical romance. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book.

    Both of the main characters were great. Jacqueline was a likable character. She was a quiet type of woman and she wasn't much for fighting. She knew that she had a responsibility as a princess and she accepted that. But, over the course of the book, she still found ways to assert herself and, in the end, nothing was going to keep her from what she truly wanted. I thought she was a lovely character. Cam was also great. He was a rake in the beginning, no getting around it. Who else would read the diary of a maiden princess? But, once his attention was caught, he wasn't going to look anywhere else. He was determined to win his princess over and he was so sweet about it. I thought he was absolutely adorable.

    The romance was sweet. Jacqueline and Cam were lovely together. And, though the spice was minimal, there was definitely chemistry between them. I did get a little frustrated that both of them got so close to losing each other because they were doing someone else's bidding. But, it wasn't a big deal. I still thought they were lovely together. And, if anything, that allowed for a super sweet reunion that I totally loved.

    The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely.

    Kisses, She Wrote was a wonderful historical romance novella. It was sweet and lovely and a truly great read. Lovers of romance, if you want a good holiday read, then you have to read this book.

    Warming and well written!

    I enjoyed the novel, a little short, but it is a holiday special. The feature is superbly well written, the protagonists relatable and endearing. Definitely worth reading.
