Seduction on a Snowy Night is a lovely Christmas-themed anthology featuring three accomplished writers that will give you many hours of reading enjoyment. In Madeline Hunter's A Christmas Abduction, Caroline Durham kidnaps Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill, as she's been led to believe he is the scoundrel who compromised her sister and left her pregnant. Caroline has been trying to keep her family together and rebuild their horse breeding farm. Adam learns more about his captor and is intrigued and attracted. A resourceful man, he manages to get free - but does he really want to leave? A Perfect Match by Sabrina Jeffries features Colonel Lord Heywood Wolfe, the younger brother of the Duke of Armitage from Project Duchess, the first book in the Duke Dynasty series. He is home from his regiment and is on a mission to deliver a message to his friend Douglas' sister, Kitty. Heywood is keen to meet the "lady who wrote the fascinating letters" that Douglas received that sustained him through many battles. It doesn't hurt that Kitty is an heiress, and Heywood needs money to rebuild the estate he inherited. When he meets Douglas' cousin, Cassandra Isles, he is attracted to her and soon realizes she is the true author of the letters. The dilemma is that Cassandra is a poor relation - or is she? She wants a man to care for her and not her fortune, so a little deception is in play. One Wicked Winter Night from Mary Jo Putney reunites Lady Diana Lawrence and Anthony Raines, Duke of Castleton, and gives them a second chance at love. The story ties into Putney's Lost Lords series as Anthony is the brother of Julia from Never Less Than a Lady. Diana returns to England after traveling the world and living in India. While at a masquerade, she encounters Anthony, and the magic is still there. Years before, Anthony had proposed marriage to Diana. She had deemed it impossible as Anthony was younger and his father was against the match. This time, Anthony is determined and will not let her go again, no matter what. "It seems that what I want is you. No one else will do." I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Three lovely novella, engrossing and entertaining, with just one issue: they're too short and wanted to read more about this characters. I love all of them and I discovered two new to me authors and I will surely read other works by them. i liked the atmosphere, the well described historical background and rooted for the characters. It was a very pleasant read. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

Three short stories by big name authors begin to usher in the Christmas season! From heiress abducting soldiers to cat-napping dukes, these stories were delightful and witty takes on what happens when two people are snowed in together over the holidays. Mary Jo Putney added an exotic taste of India to her story while Sabrina Jeffries gives readers the extra entertaining challenge of seeing how many Christmas carol phrases they can find 'hidden' in her story. Each one has a fiery and independent heroine and will leave you ready for a romantic, holly jolly holiday. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Three short stories with a Christmastime theme by well loved authors. All were different, but had the theme of misunderstandings between the Hero and Heroine some recent and some past. All the characters were likeable and the stories enjoyable. I, especially, loved the cat theme in the last novella. 3-1/2 stars. Thank you NetGalley for giving me this ARC for my honest opinion.

This book has 3 Christmas Novellas included in it. A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION by Madeline Hunter When Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill is abducted by Caroline Dunham that is when the fun begins. Caro thinks that Adam is guilty of a certain action and she wants to set the record straight....too bad in the meantime she ends up falling for him. This story was so fun and I just adored Caro. She is a go getter and is not afraid of much! 4 Stars A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries We finally get Cassandra Isles story...she is Thorn's twin sister. When Colonel Lord Heywood shows up at a ball to warn his friend's sister, Katherine "Kitty" Nickman about Captain Lionel Malet, Heywood never would have thought he'd fall in love with her cousin, Cass. After all he always thought he was in love with Kitty and her wonderful letters. I just adored Cass. She is so matter-of-fact about everything. 5 Stars ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney Lady Diana Lawrence is back in London after having traveled the world. She never expected to run into Anthony Raines, the now Duke of Castleton, so soon but the obvious chemistry was still there. Diana is unsure if she ever wants to be married but Anthony lost Diana once and is intent on not letting that happen again. It will take a kidnapping for Diana to come to her senses! I just loved Diana. She is not your typical member of the ton. She was a hoot! 5 Stars

Three quick reads by three of my favorite authors. The stories are all well told with a holiday theme to get you in the mood for Christmas. All are happily ever after, standalone, no cheating, historical romances. Even though novellas are not for me, as I like to get into the lives of the characters a little more, I still enjoyed each of the stories lines and could feel the love developing between the heroes and heroines. 3.5 stars rounded to 4. I received a copy of this story through NetGalley for my honest opinion.

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Seduction On A Snowy Night is a Christmas themed collection of 3 historical romance novellas by authors Madeline Hunter, Sabrina Jeffries, and Mary Jo Putney. Two of the novellas are part of series by the authors but I do think this book can be read as a stand-alone, although you will most likely wish to read the series once you read these novellas. The stories include a second chance at love story, one about an heiress who wants to be loved for herself and not her dowry, and one where an older sister hopes to save her younger sister from ruin. I think the stories are perfect to read curled up on a snowy night, a nice escape from the bothers of the day with guaranteed happy endings.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Seduction On A Snowy Night is a trio of holiday stories by Madeline Hunter, Sabrina Jeffries, and Mary Jo Putney. Available on 9-24-19, it's my start on Christmas love story reading. A snow storm that strands our 3 couples is the tie-in, all the stories can work as stand alone with no problem. A Christmas Abduction by Madeline Hunter presents our first couple, Caroline "Caro" Dunham and Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill. Caro wants revenge and she's figured out a way to have it. Adam's no good cousin killed their breeding stock & ruined their horse business. A female member of her family is in "a delicate condition" & Adam is the baby daddy, so she thinks. Caro wants revenge but also justice for Amelia, she needs a husband fast. Adam doesn't know a thing about any of this but begins to see the light soon enough. He's an affable guy & wants to help. He and Caro are made for each other, they realize this & now have to find a way to have a HEA. I liked these 2 characters a lot. A perfect Match by Sabrina Jeffries is our next story. A nasty fortune hunter is after Kitty, her cousin Cass is determined that the snake will not get his way. She's fierce & the guy is crazy to let her in on his plan, he's bragging. Enter Colonel Lord Heywood Wolfe. He's a friend Kitty's brother. He abducts they girls from a ball, just in time, & takes them home to his family. He intends to court Kitty, he loved her letters & thinks she's peachy keen. Lots of misunderstandings happen. Turns out Kitty didn't write the letters, Cass did. He's been infatuated with the wrong girl for years. He's torn, needs money, but love wins out. HEA. One Wicked Winter Night by Mary Jo Putney involves second chance lovers Lady Diana Lawrence and Anthony Raines, Duke of Castleton. I had a hard time with this story, these two weren't very emotionally mature for people of 30-ish. A little conversation goes a long way. Theirs was 7 years in the making. There are some terrific cats in the story. Everyone gets an HEA, even the cats. #Netgalley #KensingtonBooks #SeductionOnASnowyNight #MadelineHunter #SabrinaJeffries #MaryJoPutney #Romance

A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION by Madeline Hunter - 4 stars Adam finds himself abducted on the way to his cousin's for Christmas. He has no money, so can't imagine that they want to ransom him. Caroline has a bone to pick with the baron, and has decided to keep him at her home until he gives into what she demands. But what happens when she starts to see a different side to him? I really enjoyed this quick read. Watching Adam and Caroline's antics had me laughing out loud. A great way to spend a cold winter's night! A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries - 4 Stars Cassandra and her cousin are abducted from a ball by Lord Heywood. Although they later learn he did it to protect them from a scoundrel. They both seem to be attracted to each other, but she soon learns that Heywood is looking for an heiress, which everyone believes she is not... Can these two get their HEA? I really enjoyed this one. I belongs in the Duke Dynasty series (Project Duchess and to be released in 2020, The Bachelor). I really enjoyed revisiting this family! Cassandra wants to marry for love so she doesn't want anyone to know that she is actually an heiress. But when she falls for Heywood and doesn't tell him this fact, it causes all kinds of angst. ONE WICKED WINTER’S NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney - 5 Stars Diana and Anthony had fallen in love at an early age, but they were torn apart. In the man time, Diana travels all over the world. When she comes back, she soon runs into Anthony and the spark is still there. She doesn't think their romance can be revived, but Anthony has other plans. Who will win this battle of wills? I loved this reunion story! The attraction between Diana and Anthony was read hot and kept be devouring the story! An the antics with the cats, LOL!! I believe that this is part of the Rogues Redeemed Series...

A Christmas Abduction – Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill, is on the way to a family Christmas when he is held up and kidnapped by a woman (Caroline) and Jason, a young man who works on her horse farm. Caroline believes he took advantage of her now pregnant sister, Amelia. Snowbound, he realizes she’s had some troubles on the farm and helps her. I enjoyed this very good short story with twists and turns. A Perfect Match – Miss Cassandra Isles is repulsed by the handsome Capt. Lionel Malet who escorts her, and her rich younger cousin, Katherine, to a ball. Malet wants to marry Kitty but she likes their solicitor, Mr. Adams. Cassandra wants to marry for love and doesn’t discuss her money. Looking for her cousin on the terrace she meets Col. Lord Heywood Wolfe. Fearing Malet will kidnap Kitty, Heywood takes the girls to his broken-down estate. Much more going on in this story, but I won’t ruin it! One Wicked Winter Night – Lady Diana Lawrence (30) is the black sheep of her family. She has traveled for more than 7 years after a doomed affair and is currently in India. Her favorite niece, Aurora, is pregnant and wants her to come home and be her child’s Godmother. Anthony Raines, Duke of Castleton, agrees to attend a masked ball with his sisters where 2 harem girls do a show. He dances with Diana but leaves the ball early. Anthony and Diana do get together but I’m not going to spoil this unique story.

What an amazing collection of stories! Some of romance's best contributed to Seduction on a Snow Night Madeline Hunter gifts us with A Christmas Abduction where Caroline Dunham devises an excellent scheme to ensure the undivided attention of Baron Thornhill in an effort to obtain some sort of revenge. It does backfire a bit as she finds his attention to be distracting to say the least. Next up is Sabrina Jeffries with A Perfect Match. Cassandra Isles is whisked away from a ball by Colonel Lord Heywood. He claims it is for her safety but Cassandra is not so sure. She finds herself struggling with her feelings for him, but he needs an heiress while she is hiding that she indeed just what he needs. She needs nothing short of love. One Wicked Winter Night is next by Mary Jo Putney. Lady Diana Lawrence finds herself tempted at a costume ball. She is even more amazed when she learns that her temptation, a mysterious corsair, turns out to be the Duke of Castleton, a man she loved once but lost. Have they found each other again? Seduction on a Snowy Night takes us into unexpected love found when the world is being blanketed with snow. Each story is unique and delightfully romantic. This is perfect for when you want something special but do not have a lot of time. Grab this one and carry it with you wherever you go.

This winter, steal away with the reigning queens of Regency Romance . . . to a surprise snowstorm, the comfort of a blazing fire, and the heat of a lover’s kisses . . . A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION by Madeline Hunter Caroline Dunham has a bone to pick with notorious rake Baron Thornhill—and a creative plan to insure his undivided attention. Yet once in close quarters, she finds herself beholden to their smoldering connection . . . I liked this one but not quite as much as the Sabrina Jefferies offering. A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries Whisked away from a wintry ball by the officer she knew only through letters, Cassandra Isles struggles with her feelings for the commanding Colonel Lord Heywood. For he, secretly a fortune-hunter, must marry for money to save his estate—and Cass, secretly an heiress, will accept nothing less than love . . . This was my favorite of the trio. I always seem to enjoy a Sabrina Jeffries romance no matter the length! ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney Dressed as a veiled princess, Lady Diana Lawrence is shocked to discover that the mysterious corsair who tempts her away from the costume ball is the duke she once loved and lost. Now snowed in with Castleton at a remote lodge, will she surrender to the passion still burning hotly between them? This was my least favorite although I liked all three. I gave this collection 4.25 of 5.0 stars. I received a complimentary ARC of this anthology to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this collection which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

An anthology of novellas by three of my favorite authors! The common theme was abductions and winter storms. Even though these were novellas, you were still able to get a good feel for the characters. Though hard to choose, I did enjoy A Perfect Match the best. This novella is a great connection between Sabrina Jeffries’ first and second book in the Duke Dynasty series. The next book is entitled The Bachelor and comes out in February of 2020. I received an ARC for my honest review.
