I always feel like I am getting a bonus when I buy a book with 3 stories. And when the three stories are by three authors I like, its a bargain bonus. It's an interesting story line that runs throughout the book. Then you also have a great cover. Its good all the way around.

The Liber Ducis de Scientia – The Duke’s Book of Knowledge – has never been found even though Professor Phineas Peebles claims it exists. Three former students of his from Oxford want to procure the elusive volume to thank the professor upon his retirement in ten days. And three wonderful authors relate their exploits while they find love. The Will to Love by Grace Burrowes Ms. Burrowes’ erudition, her mastery of the English language, and her wit dazzle in this very romantic – and quite enlightening – novella. Philomena and Ramsdale are very well drawn, engaging, and this is a charming, sweet and often quite amusing story. How to Steal a Duke (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, but Definitely in Less than a Fortnight) by Shana Galen You would not expect Shana Galen to write a sedate little tale, now would you? This novella is filled with action, very unexpected twists, and clever little surprises. Dominick is staid and very proper duke, who displays unusual personality traits I found endearing, and Roslyn and bubbly and very ingenious. This is a riveting story with a bit of a Gothic vibe, and Ms. Galen’s writing is as smooth and polished as ever. I actually wanted more of this story! And the icing on the cake is the perfectly delightful The Viscount’s First Kiss by Carolyn Jewel. This novella was simply wonderful! Magdalene is slightly older than Daunt, not exactly beautiful, yet Daunt is profoundly enamoured of her mind, knowledge, and cleverness. And so was I! Daunt is flirtatious and charming, yet very honourable, and has been pining in secret for Magdalene, and he was simply irresistible. While they search, research, and despair over finding the elusive tome, they get closer while conversing, and it is so beautifully written that I was left breathless. I could see the library, the books, Magdalene and Daunt, as clearly as if they had been in front of me; just gorgeous. The writing is indescribably beautiful, elegant, and so dazzling that the sheer beauty of it all nearly had me tearing up. Most of the action consists of sifting through books, chatting, a little seduction, and I wouldn’t change a word. Positively enchanting! The perfect epilogue concludes this wonderful anthology; all the interrogations are answered, and all the loose ends are tied with quite a bit of flair and a dash of romance! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

This anthology features 3 members of the Bibliomania Club who want to find “The Duke’s Book of Knowledge” for their favorite professor who is retiring. Some say the book, or rather the books, as there are four volumes, does not exist. Dominick, Duke of Tremayne, Seton, Earl of Ramsdale and Harry, Viscount Daunt do believe they exist and have 10 days to find them before Professor Peebles retires. Seton hires Prof. Peebles’ daughter, Philomena, to translate his uncle’s will as it is in Latin. There may be clues in the will and in his library. Best line from Seton: “please don’t bid me farewell when we are quarreling.” Dominick believes there may be clues at a remote keep, The Temples, on the Cornwall coast. The problem is it’s on the cliffs, partially surrounded by the sea and a mad earl lives there. Rosalyn, whose family has come on hard times, meets the Duke as she is trying to escape from an attempted theft. He saw her climbing the wall and prevents her arrest as he wants to hire her to climb into the keep, which she does. The keep’s lady has told them all the books were sold after her husband died. Harry has travelled to his estate as he has bought the contents of several private libraries hoping to find “the Dukes”. Magdalene Carter, his neighbor, is now a widow. Harry has loved her for a long time and hopes she will help him go through the new books. They both want to find the missing volumes. I really enjoyed the premise of this book but was very disappointed in the ending. I was expecting an epilogue with Prof. Peebles retirement party. While the reader knows if they did, or did not, find the books we are left wondering about Prof. Peebles reaction.

This is an historical romance anthology from three talented authors. Judging from its title, I had pre-conceived notions about the plots. The title is actually playfully misleading. I won't spoil that for anyone, but the main focus of the storyline is very original and intriguing. I enjoyed all three novellas, and they all left me wanting more. Burrowes was sweet with her signature dry wit and included a sharply intelligent heroine to happily root for as she stepped up and reached out for what she wanted. Galen's featured a spunky fearless heroine who I loved and a duke of a hero who learned the lesson of what's truly important in life. Jewel's followed a friends-to-lovers trope with a slightly older widow and her neighbor who has secretly loved her for quite some time. This one included a music room scene that was ! I loved that the heroine from each story was a strong, intelligent, passionate woman, and the gents were neither disapproving or threatened by these ladies. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
