Midsummer Delights: A Short Story Collection by Eloisa James

Who Writes Cinderella Stories Better than Eloisa James?


No Eloisa James fan should miss these enchanting short stories!

A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace!


​After Miss Cecilia B​ellingworth has endured two Seasons, she decides that she would rather ruin her reputation than endure further speculation about whether her children will be “silly,” like her brother, Billy.​ ​She puts on a gorgeous gown and decides to flirt outrageously​ with the first handsome servant she sees!  Luckily, a gorgeous musician at the Duke of Ormond’s ball seems the perfect candidate to create a scandal… Don’t miss this charming version of Cinderella, previously published in the Essex Sisters Companion Guide.


At Midnight


​Elias Hempleworth-Gray has only one thing only of value—his title, Earl of Leyton. Determined to leave England and the scandal of his gambler father behind, Elias hopes to turn around his fortunes and come back to claim the lady he loves, Miss Penelope White. But Penny has other plans for the man she has loved all her life...plans that include a masquerade, a stolen kiss and a lost shoe.

A fun little "snack" for your reading pleasure! The first and longest story, A Midsummer Night's Disgrace was also found in The Official Essex Sisters Companion Guide , but it was definitely worth the re-read! It's a sweet former enemies to lovers story, told from the POV of Cece, Josie's ( Pleasure for Pleasure ) best friend, a wallflower who decides to take her future into her own hands. Things don't go exactly the way she'd planned, but IMHO even better than she could have imagined. At Midnight is another story told from a single character POV, this time the hero, Eli. He's been in love with the same girl since childhood, but has convinced himself that they can never be--in fact, he's bracing himself for his best friend's midnight proposal to that same girl (spoiler alert--the best friend isn't thrilled either). Can these relationships be saved? (Of course they can. But wait until you see how Ms. James does it--there's a nod to Cinderella here that makes for a fun twist.) Ever After was apparently published in the print version of The Ugly Duchess , but since I listened to the audio on that one, it was new to me. It's a sweet second chance romance story for a hero who's been gone a little too long and the heroine who might have given up on him...or has she? All together, Midsummer Delights is a fun, quick read that's perfect for a cozy evening paired up with a cup or two of tea. Plus, there's a teaser chapter for the next Wildes of Lindow Castle book ( Too Wilde to Wed ) at the end that has me more anxious than ever for its release. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
