A wonderful collection of three stories by some of the best authors of historical romance, that will get you in the holiday spirit. All are headed to Danby Castle where the Duke of Danby resides. Ava Stone's On the Way to the Castle, finds twins Lily and Amelia on the way to their great uncle's home, who is a notorious matchmaker. Lily is ready to accept Danby's recommendation for a match, but Amelia is determined to fight because she is in love with another. But fate steps in with an overturned coach containing some handsome gentlemen and it seems uncle may not have to step in at all! Love everything by Ava Stone and this is no exception! The perfect romance that warms the heart. Samantha Grace's Three Little Words, finds Gavin MacBride asked to escort one Victoria Eastland, heiress, to Danby Castle. How hard could that be? Well very when he finds the young lady has set out on her own and he has the devil of a time tracking her down! Only able to secure a horse, he is taking in by a stranger in their coach and the chase begins. Or is it already over? A lovely story of a feisty woman who cares nothing for society's strictures and finds a handsome man may just be her match. In Suitor By Surprise by Claudia Dain, a most unlikely man is sent out to distract Judith, the niece of the Duke of Danby. Having been enamored by a scoundrel (she does not know he was!), Alfred is tasked with distracting her from that man. He just wants to get much needed funding for a bridge and the Duke made an offer he could not refuse. The key was to distract her, but is seems more is coming of it as he spends time with beautiful Judith. Prepare to be enchanted and only wanting to read more from these authors! I read this through NetGallery. Lori Dykes

Aahh, the Duke of Danby is at it again and not everyone is happy about it. On the Way to the Castle by Ava Stone Can love be found on the way to the castle? Ladies Lily and Amelia Woodward seems to think so. One is resigned to whatever their great uncle has planned and one will fight him tooth and nail to avoid his marriage match. Will an overturned coach and handsome gentlemen affect the duke’s plans? Or could this be another of his matchmaking attempts? What better Christmas story than when Ava Stone writes the Duke of Danby. Love, love, love Ms. Stone and she does not disappoint in this one. Three Little Words by Samantha Grace How hard can it be to escort one young woman to Danby Castle at Christmas? For Gavin MacBride – extremely hard if that young woman’s name is Victoria Eastland. Samantha Grace leads us on a merry chase across England when Victoria sets off on her own. Fate seems to conspire against Gavin in his search for Victoria or is it working in conjunction with the Duke of Danby to bring these two their happily ever after? Suitor by Surprise by Claudia Dain Miss Judith Whitton (a family always worth visiting with) – will this Christmas visit to the Duke of Danby bring a happily ever after for Judith and the man who caught her attention a year ago? Albert FitzHerbert should know that when the Duke of Danby agrees to fund something “if”…it usually involves more than the duke lets on, and when he knows why Judith’s man has not offered for her it could get complicated. So sit back ad let Claudia Dain surprise you in this delightful tale.

I absolutely love this collaboration of stories. These woman are amazing writers who will keep you entertained, on the edge of your seat, and dying to meet the Duke of Danby. Though most people see the powerful Duke as controlling and manipulative, I think that the way he brings people together, and helps them find true love is one of his most redeeming qualities, and I would love to be invited to Danby Castle for any holiday! The Duke of Danby's Holiday Hijinx is most definitely a buy, for anyone to add some much need romance to their holiday season.

There are things I like about reading an omnibus. Since I like to read a book in its entirety in one or two sittings, I find if I am short for time I can read just one of these stories at a time and pick the book up to read the rest at a later time. What I don’t like about reading these short stories is that I find there aren’t enough pages in the story to flesh out the characters and not rush the plot. I enjoyed this book and I liked that they all had a common theme of visiting the same Duke. Of them all, I found I liked Ava Stone’s the best. She is a new author to me and I will definitely be looking to read her other stories.

I really enjoyed all three of these novellas! On the Way to the Castle by Ava Stone - 4 stars This story was great because you get 2 stories for the price of one! Lily and Amelia are twins and on the way to their great-uncle's home from Christmas. He is known for his matchmaking, but each of the girls feels differently about what is about to happen. Traveling to his estate, they encounter two wounded men. The sisters find themselves attracted the strangers, if only their brother doesn't interfere. Three Little Words by Samantha Grace - 4 stars Gavin has been tasked with bringing his SIL's sister home for the holidays, but he seems to always be one step behind her. He soon learns that the young man he has been traveling with is the woman he was looking for. But she doesn't want to be taken to her sister, whom she's been estranged from. Will Gavin end up disappointing his brother or the woman he is falling for? Suitor by Surprise by Claudia Dain - 4 stars Judith has fallen in love and can't wait for her beau to ask for her hand in marriage. Too bad it's been almost a year since she has seen him. Unknown to her, her uncle has tasked another to take her mind off or her beau. Will he succeed? I really enjoyed all three stories buy these authors and will soon be reading the other Duke of Danby books that they have written.

On way they are attacked by highwayman and left hurt and stranded in the snow. Lord Elston and his sisters Lady’s Lily and Amelia Woodward have been summoned to their great-uncle Danby’s house party. They dread going to the matchmakers but know they must and hope they do not come back wed. The Woodward’s happen upon Richard and Daniel and help them to safety. Amelia cannot believe her good fortune, Daniel Lacy is in their coach and on the way to her great uncles home. She has pined for him since she met him when he was betrothed to her cousin. It’s to bad he probably hates her family since her cousin jilted him. Lily can’t help the spark she feels for poor Richard, she needs to see him healthy from the terrible head injury, she is so intrigued by him. What started off as a unwanted trip just might be a chance of a lifetime. This was a very charming Christmas romance with good characters and a very cute puppy. Three Little Words Samantha Grace 3.5* Victoria Eastland finds out her life as she knew it was a lie. Her parents and brother are all died and she’s now on the path to find her real family in England. Gavin MacBride has been sent to escort Victoria to meet her family. He will do anything for his family even if that means chasing a girl he’s never met through the countryside. Victoria knows traveling alone as a woman is dangerous so doning her male persona she sets off to Danby’s town. She runs into Gavin who needs help with traveling after someone, after offering to share the coach they find they enjoy each other’s company. When the truth is revealed can the secrets be overcome with the trust and friendship developed or will these two go their separate ways? Suitor By Surprise Claudia Dain 3* This was my least favorite of the three stories in this anthology. I felt it was wrapped up entirely to fast even though there was 14 chapters. Judith Whitton has been in love for a year with Mr. Conley since she met at Christmas. She has not seen nor heard from him since. Alfred “Affie” FitzHerbert has been sent to London by Lord Danby to dissuade Judith from her feelings for Conley. Affie knows Conley for the rake he is and vows to protect Judith, what he doesn’t know is how he himself will feel for Judith. When Mr. Conley arrives in town Affie and Judith must find their way through a mass of feelings, truth and honor.

Three fun Christmas stories. The Duke of Danby is at it again. He is making matches for his beloved family. Even when they think they don't want to be married, he maneuvers everyone around until they think it was their idea to get married. I always enjoy seeing what is going on with the Duke.
