In HOW A LASS WED A HIGHLANDER, Lecia Cornwall gives delightful and whimsical twists to the classic fairytale The Princess and the Pea. I felt the sex scene clashed with the lyricism and the tone of the story, which genuinely read like a fairytale: light, fresh, and so lovely. Everything else is magnificent: the lush prose, the attention to detail, the crisp descriptions, the splendid secondary characters, the adorable Cait and the engaging Alex, and the spin on the pea is positively brilliant. Anna Harrington is next with her fabulous A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER. This story is so emotional, and so meticulously crafted it felt more like a condensed novel than a novella. The characters are fully fleshed out, no detail is neglected, and we get the whole story behind the sorry mess. Ms. Harrington conveys Scottish pride as I have seldom seen, and there is a wonderful and completely unexpected moment when we feel the ice begin to melt between Garrick and Arabel; it was charming and felt completely genuine. This is a very beautifully written, engrossing grand love story that held me captive throughout. A MIDSUMMER WEDDING by May McGoldrick is a marvellous, mesmerising, and enthralling story. There is such a lovely, gentle touch to the prose, a refined elegance and wit, and yet the action scenes are breathtaking in their authenticity and impression of movement. I was so completely immersed in this story, that the outside world faded away for a while. The ending is dramatic and, as everything else in this story, absolute perfection. The last novella is Sabrina York’s THE SCOT SAYS I DO. Although I got the impression that this novella fit somewhere in a series, there were so many secondary characters, which were marvellous. I thought there was too much happening in this novella, and not enough emphasis was put on creating some connection between Catherine and Duncan, beside a sexual one. On the other hand, they are a fine match because they are both consumed by lust; this was not a love story, but a lust story. I was really impressed by the quality of the writing, the choice vocabulary and the impeccable dialogues. May McGoldrick, who are a writing team and were new to me, would have made this anthology a five-star read regardless of the other novellas because I was astonished by the charm that permeates the whole story, the magnificent period details, the cleverness of the plot; in short the utter perfection of A MIDSUMMER WEDDING. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

It’s been a while since I indulged in box sets or anthologies: it is simply a sheer volume/time required equation that with all I read and review, doesn’t always work out. But, I love highlanders, have read titles from 2 of these 4 authors, and the premise with guaranteed HEA’s after plenty of different issues sang out to me. Each story is unique in its premise: from debts to curses: each couple is put through a bit of a wringer before sense and love take over. With two vying for a favored spot – the titles from Sabrina York and May McGoldrick impressed with the characterizations. While York’s Catherine was a bit of a difficult miss to like – and prone to tantrums: but she does see some sense, eventually, and the kindness and all-around awesomeness of Duncan, along with the childhood crush the two shared did work it’s magic. Now, McGoldrick’s pair had plenty of intrigue, chemistry to boot, and Elizabeth who spends more time thinking about her future in the abstract rather than one with her betrothed, now worthy of her education, her beauty and her passion. Plenty of schemes to separate them with a knock heads against a wall recognition of their compatibility bring this story around nicely. The other two: Cornwall’s tale loosely based on the Princess and the Pea story brings the threat of a curse lest a wedding occur in weeks…unlike the original, however, the heroine Cait isn’t some testy or pampered princess: daring, determined and bold, but with a horrible sense of direction and less ability to deceive, this story brings her to a new recognition of love, and fills the need for a wife, love and understanding that Alex needed – even if he’s not sure of it all. Lastly is Harington’s tale of lovers separated by circumstance and brought back together as part of a plan for revenge. There were a few too many conflicts and plots in this story: Arabel is conniving, spoilt and controlling where Garrick, now with an Earldom awarded after his war service and money in his pocket just seemed a bit too willing (even after plotting – halfheartedly – his revenge) to give in to Arabel’s whims. While they seemed to be content in their relationship – I just couldn’t buy in. Overall – not a bad collection, and perfect for those who like one or two of the authors and are intrigued about another. That’s the fun part about these collections – usually set with a common theme, you can dive in and discover new authors and find new stories to entertain. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I loved most of the books in this set and the characters were well written. How a Lass Wed a Highlander was a good read matching up to the fairytale in a quirky way. A Match Made in Heather was a great 2nd chance story! A Midsummer Wedding, all I can say is I LOVED Elizabeth. Surprised the heck out of Alexander! The Scots Say I Do was by far my favorite, right up until the end. Loved the story and the fact that the H/h actually communicated through their differences. My only problem with the story was right at the end, one word bothered me. It seemed so out of sync with everything else written that it bothered me. Other than that, I loved all of these stories!

Say Yes to the Scot A Highland Wedding Box Set 4 historical highland novellas by 4 authors I. HOW A LASS WED A HIGHLANDER by Lecia Cornwall What a delightful adult fairy tale this story was! Alexander Munro’s clan has been suffering under Baird Sutherland’s marauding. One evening he is off to rescue some of his people when he stumbles upon Cait MacLeod. At first she is a prisoner and suspect but over time she steals the hearts of the people imprisoning her – including Alex’s. The question is whether or not the clan will get their magical fairytale ending and true love will conquer all. I loved it from beginning to end and LOVED finding out what man one more of The Fearsome MacLeod’s daughters ends up with. (5 Stars) II. A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER by Anna Harrington Garrick McGuiness, groom, and Arabella Rowland were set to elope only to have their plans thwarted. Ten years later they are both disillusioned, have false information about that night and yet are given a second chance at love. By this time much has happened and it won’t be easy for them to find a HEA…especially as obstinate as they both are. I never understood why Arabella was so true to a family so undeserving or how Garrick could carry a torch, either could carry a torch, for ten years. (2-3 Stars) III. A MIDSUMMER WEDDING by May McGoldrick A marriage arranged when children are 3 and 7 is not one that will necessarily be looked forward to when those same children are twenty years older. Elizabeth Hay and Alexander MacPherson, in trying to get out of their upcoming wedding, instead find they have a very good reason indeed to marry…if they are not routed by a regal person wanting to nix the wedding. I liked this one a lot! (4-5 Stars) IV. THE SCOT SAYS I DO by Sabrina York Catherine Ross had a crush on Duncan Mackay when she was twelve. He, being older and working in the stable, used teasing to keep her at a distance. Years later he has improved his station, is wealthy and seeks Catherine out to wed. It takes them both a bit of time to admit they care for one another and someone else to kidnap her before a final HEA ending can be achieved. I found this story entertaining but somewhat predictable. (3 Stars) Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press – Swerve for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

I really enjoyed all four of the stories in this anthology! It included stories from 4 of my favorite authors, so I knew I couldn't go wrong by picking it up. These were all quick reads, but each of the authors does a wonderful job of giving the reader a full story in the included work. Definitely a must pick up for historical romance fans!

How a Lass Wed a Highlander by Lecia Cornwall Adding fairy magic to this story is perfect and Laird Alex Munro of Culmore doesn't believe in such things so it is fun watching this non believer being forced to adhere to clan customs. Cait is a strong woman and I like her position regarding her cousin and the Laird. The back and forth between these two is like watching a table tennis match...exciting. A Match Made in Heather by Anna Harrington Garrick and Arabel are star crossed lovers with extreme anger towards each other and this lends to a tension filled read. The author's portrayal of their interactions are heartfelt moving this reader to want a happy ending for them. A Midsummer Wedding by May McGoldrick Elizabeth and Alexander both don't want to marry each other and this is where the story gets very, very interesting. This set of authors under the pen name of May McGoldrick knows how to tell an interesting story filled with historic details. I enjoy reading anything they write. The Scot Says I Do by Sabrina York What a great plot of intrigue and love lot! Full of rich detail and deep emotions this story squeezed my heart and then filled it up. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

'Say Yes to the Scot' is a box set with 4 different stories with a total of 410 pages long. I not sure how you could go wrong with this box set! It's the collection of some of the best authors for Historical Romance. Also it is a great way to meet new authors....this gives you a taste of their writing style. I always love box set too for when I need a quick romance fix while waiting for an appointment or for a quick book for bed. HOW A LASS WED A HIGHLANDER by Lecia Cornwall *** Alex is trying to come up with a plan to help his clan who just survived another raid which has dislocated several families. In addition he is trying to figure out how to feed them all before winter hits them.

Now to fix all the bad things that have been happening his family and clan feel he must marry by Midsummer's Eve. Cait just wanted to stop another clan feud but now is caught by Alex.

A MIDSUMMER WEDDING by May McGoldrick *** Elizabeth and Alexander were betrothed to be married when they were children but have never met. Elizabeth turned to helping her father and became a smart, musical bookish sort of lady who when at 18 years of age had dreams of marrying Alexander but he never came. Now at 23 she is happy with giving up that dream and working with her father. Alexander is total different from Elizabeth in that he is a pirate and very outspoken...and doesn't live a very quiet life. But the day has come for them to say their vows... can these two work out their differences? THE SCOT SAYS I DO by Sabrina York *** Catherine had met Duncan when she was a young girl when her father took her to the Highlands to stay. Duncan had actually saved her from drowning and ever since Catherine had been in love with him. But Duncan had treated her as a little sister and even kissed other women in front of her.

Now the father is gone and Duncan has taken on the brothers debit...time has changed but has he toward Catherine? "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

So unusual that all 4 novellas in this book are 5 stars. I loved them all! I will not write too much as I do not like to spoil the stories. Lecia Cornwall's "How a Lass Weds a Highlander" continues her standalone fairy tale novellas with a Princess and the Pea story. I have enjoyed all of them. According to legend, Alex Munro has 5 weeks to Midsummer's Eve to find, fall in love with and marry a bride with the fairy ring to restore the clan's luck, which has not been good lately. Cait MacLeod is sorry she thought her Sutherland cousin might be a good match for her and leaves his keep to go home. She gets lost in the woods, but found by the Munro who thinks she is an enemy Sutherland. So does Alex marry in time? Anna Harrington's "A Match Made in Heaven" may cause tears but is wonderful. Arabel loves Garrick, who works for her family. They plan to elope but she cancels due to family problems. He's furious she chose her family over him. Ten years later they find they have each inherited half of her Great Uncle's estate. They must share the estate for 6 months before either can sell their share. So do they settle their past? May McGoldrick's "A Midsummer Wedding" has lowlander Elizabeth Hay facing a marriage arranged when she was a child to highlander Alexander Macpherson. She has waited long enough for him and wants to make him back out so she can do as she wants. She pretends to be someone else to meet him but a storm forces them together. Sabrina York's "The Scot Says I Do" finds Catherine 's brother Peter trying to marry her off. But at 12 she fell in love with the family's groom, Duncan Mackay, who saved her life and then broke her young heart. What a coincidence that Peter now owes Duncan a large sum of money. Will the heart broken at 12 be able to heal and find a HEA?

This is a wonderful collection of books that I just loved. Each story was better than the last and kept me turning pages just as quickly as possible. Each author created a delightful set of characters and made me fall in love with them. While all of the books were great, my personal favorite was The Scot Says I Do, by Sabrina York. This is an engaging story that also highlights some of the real challenges women faced during the time period. However, it is told as only the Queen of Hotness can tell a tale. While the heat is a bit tamer than many of her books, the story is a must read. If you enjoy a Highland romance, you will love this collection. Put this one at the top of your TBR, you'll be glad you did.
