About the Author

Jude Knight has been telling stories all her life: making up serial tales to amuse her friends and children, imagining sequels to books that have moved her and left her wanting more, occasionally submitting short stories to magazines and the radio, starting more than a dozen novels set in different times and places. She has devoted most of the last forty years to a career in commercial writing and raising a large family (most recently as grandmother-in-residence while a daughter was out of action for three years). She and her own personal romantic hero, with whom she has shared those forty+ years, now live with two cats and frequent visitors in a small town in rural New Zealand. Judy wrote and published her first historical romance in 2014, and now has the wind in her sails and a head full of strong determined heroines, heroes with the sense to appreciate them, and villains you'll love to loathe.

Beautifully written series of intertwined short stories developed around a winter holiday gathering. I enjoyed reading each story by these talented authors of the regency period and especially enjoyed how the characters and tales of each were interwoven. I would have enjoyed spending the holidays with these ladies. As an added benefit, 25% of proceeds go to charity.

I have waited all year for this wonderful collection of romantic holiday stories by the Bluestocking Belles, a talented group of authors. It was worth the wait. The setting for each story is the Duchess of Haverford's Yuletide house party and a New Year's Eve ball at Hollystone Hall. Not only does the Duchess enjoy matchmaking, she has a special place in her heart for women's education, as do the Belles. While each story is mainly about the sweet and special romance between two of the characters, the stories do intertwine as all of the characters are staying at Hollystone Hall. I was so caught in the book and quickly flipped the pages so I could see who got their happily ever after next. Each story made me smile and sigh. It is amazing to me that each story was written by a different author. Collectively, their voices blended and produced what will surely be one of my all time favorite books. One really fun thing is that while this is a stand alone collection, some of the characters have appeared in other books by the Belles. If this is your first time reading a book by these fabulous authors, you will want to check out each author individually. I first met the authors with their 2015 holiday collection. In the past year, I have read each of the books written by them. I have enjoyed them all, but this one is extra special.
