Forevermore by Lauren Royal (5 Stars) I received a free copy of this book from Lauren Royal in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own. Forevermore is Lauren's story in this collection. It has a fairytale quality to it much like its title; a knight in shining armour wooing a woman who has only known pain in marriage/relationships with men. It is short but sweet and satisfying. The Handfasting by Glynnis Campbell (5 Stars) - A story of mistaken identity, sibling loyalty and love. This was a charming story with a HEA ending. Fall from Grace by Jill Barnett (5 Stars) - This was my favourite in the collection, I laughed and chuckled to myself through the story. A fab read! Heart of Fragile Stars by Cynthia Wright (5 Stars) - This story reminded me of an Errol Flynn movie; swashbuckling pirate and spirited damsel! A lighthearted read, though with a couple of loose ends. The Four Leaf Clover by Cheryl Bolen (2 Stars) - Found the hero of this old fashioned story rather pompous and didn't feel any chemistry between the pair. A Winter Heart by Annette Blair (4 Stars) - A heartwarming Amish story about second chances at love.

Charming, quick reads and just a bit steamy! I enjoyed reading this collection. I am the mom of a toddler and a full time teacher/ band director in the midst of spring concert season. But I am a true bookworm at heart. And I love that these well-written books are a quick read. (I read one of them in its entirety on the school bus too and from contest this past weekend!) They are charming, feel-good stories with just enough steam to keep things interesting! Enjoy!!! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I really enjoy anthologies because they frequently introduce me to a new author, while often allowing me to read a new book by an author I’ve enjoyed before. THE HANDFASTING When her cruel father threatens her older, but disabled brother Caimbeul with death, Ysenda is forced to trick her sister's betrothed into marrying her instead. By the time her husband, Sir Noel de Ware, discovers he has wedded (and bedded) the wrong sister, they have developed feelings for one another, & it is up to the three of them to find a solution that will satisfy everyone, including the two kings who ordered the marriage. This is a lovely story, with enough twists & turns to keep you guessing as to how they will arrive at their HEA. FOREVERMORE The beautifully written & heartwarming story of Clarice Bradford, a 32 year old widow with an adopted daughter who is romanced by a young Scottish Baron. Having been used & abused by her late husband & fearing the difference in age between Cameron Leslie & herself, she is wary of taking his courtship seriously. Though a standalone story, there are several characters we met in Ms. Royal's other books. You will definitely want to read the other books in the series, because they are all just wonderful! FALL FROM GRACE During an ambush, Grace McNish & her bumbling, starving band of cohorts capture a man who she thinks the son of her mortal enemies, the thieving McNabs, intending to hold him for ransom. He is not a McNab, but is instead Colin Campbell, Earl of Argyll, the man who well may be the answer to her clan's prayers. In a series of laugh-out-loud misadventures involving misaimed crossbows, pikes, & a half-deaf bagpiper, they come to an uneasy truce for the good of her clan. Snappy dialog & funny situations by this new (to me) author move this well crafted story along to its inevitable HEA. HEART OF FRAGILE STARS As soon as Jean-Philippe Beauvisage, AKA the pirate called the Sea Rogue, meets Russian orphan Antonia, he knows he has to make her his & proceeds to make that dream come true, rescuing/kidnapping her. Though a standalone novella, it is the first book in Ms. Wright's excellent Rakes & Rebels series, where you can follow the descendants of Jean-Philippe and Antonia as they have their own adventures & find their own true loves. THE FOUR-LEAF CLOVER This was the only book in the collection which, though quite good, to me didn’t live up to the excellent writing I’ve come to expect from Ms. Bolen (having read 4 of her other books). Norman Sterling proposes to Millie Gresham, a woman he had seen (but not met) years earlier. To his joy, she accepts & they enter into what appears to be an idyllic marriage, despite their unwillingness to confess their love for each other. Their relationship is nearly destroyed by miscommunication, suspicion & fear. Honestly the first half of the book dragged for me, though it picked up eventually, arriving (finally!) at its HEA. A WINTER HEART Drawn by the ghostly presence of a young woman to a property for sale, Amish farmer Caleb Skylar meets Hannah Peachy & is immediately drawn to the melancholy young woman. Even his frightened daughter immediately takes to Hannah, & so they begin a loving relationship, even though they all bear deep emotional scars of their pasts. In the end they are willing to traverse any obstacles to be together, even the wrath of Hannah’s father, the bishop. I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewing "Forevermore" by Lauren Royal Wow! What a great read! This novella is part of the Chase family series, but it is not necessary to have read them in order to enjoy this book. It is great as a stand alone novella. Lauren Royal "puts to paper" a cast of realistic characters with soul-capturing emotions. If you're a fan of historical romances with some spice, you'll love this read! I was hooked from the first chapter! I am always looking for more books to read by Lauren Royal.
