Rating A Heat Sweet to WarmWhat kind of trouble can ten young ladies and gentlemen snowed in at a Scottish castle get into Well when the party includes a uke an earl a French comte and a highland

which immediately The Passport That Does Not Pass Ports disualifies Catriona Also there by coincidence is the Duke of Bretton John Shevington who was asleep in his carriage when it was borrowed for the kidnapping Finding themselves not part of the planned match making Catriona and John find amusement with each other Part one was full of wit and humor really it s Julia uinnoing what she The Arcav Princes Captive (Arcav Alien Invasion, does best Cute and sweet with aash of fun I loved every single second of Catriona and John s flirty and fun banter It put a constant smile on my face which is why I wasn t ready for it to end Oh sure it s wrapped up nicely but I wanted of Catriona and John Much Next we meet Fiona Chrisholm a bespectacled heiress with a less than stellar reputation And when compared to her half sister Marilla Fiona Southern Women at the Seven Sister Colleges Feminist Values and Social Activism 1875 1915 doesn t expect to be noticed But Byron Wotton an Earl and the nephew of Taran Ferguson can t help but see the bookish and fiery redhead Byron is a bit tetchy Grouchy and stuffy for someone his age And Fiona can rile him up like no other Part two took me by surprise Eloisa James always manages to pack such a punch in her novellas I really shouldn t have been surprised that I invested so much in both Byron and Fiona But who can blame me Byron was such a fuddyuddy that you can t help but smile every time he says or teachers Manual African American Literature does something particularly fuddyuddy ish And Fiona s heartbreaking and unfortunately sort of hilarious fall from grace years earlier only endeared me to her Lastly comes Cecily a uiet but Agricultural Innovation in the Early Islamic World determined young lady Unlike our previous couples Cecily is not

the pursuer even if poor Robin was less than thrilled I haven t previously read anything by Connie Brockway but I enjoyed her writing immensely There was an understated uiet humor to both Cecily and Robin I particularly enjoyed the image of poor Cecily stuffing bed Big Book of AA All 12 Steps Understand and Complete One Step At A Time in Recovery with Alcoholics Anonymous 12 of 12 Books drapesown

did it might be worth clicking s tempting orange buy buttonbut only if you meet the following criteria1 As other reviewers have noted this is a three part novel written by threeifferent authors I found the transition from one author to the next smoother than I Activism and the American Novel d feared it would be and even thought it was somewhat interesting to compare the slightlyifferent writing styles but if that kind of thing is jarring for you I Agriculture at a Glance Revised Edition d give this one a pass2 In order toerive much enjoyment from this collection you should be a romance reader who buys into instant love without much okay any A Love No Less Two Centuries of African American Love Letters difficulty Even as someone who can often merrily go along for the ride much when two strangers allegedly fall in love within a VERY very short period of time the stories here involve three couples who move with such supersonic speed from who the hell are you to Please marry me my one true love and with so little transpiring other than a very uick conversation or two that it was really REALLYifficult to suspend my Places of Their Own: African American Suburbanization in the Twentieth Century (Historical Studies of Urban America) disbelief On a related note the characterepth is minimal to nonexistent Skillfully written short stories and novellas can create The Arcav Kings Mate (Arcav Alien Invasion distinct vibrant characters in impressively few pages in these stories only one of the heroes and one of the heroines truly came to life for me3 You should be craving a light frothy if it were any less substantive it would float away read I m an ardent fan of witty lighthearted romances that are low on angst and high on blissfully escapist fun but even for me this one felt fairly hollow shallow and so what ishOn a brighter note I reallyo like all of these authors writing styles and found it a mildly to moderately engaging read albeit a forgettable one I hope this was helpful and happy reading This was silly HR fluffbut I have to admit that I enjoyed it I ve never read a novel that was written in three parts by three The Billionaires Arranged Baby 3 different authors but I think it mostly worked here and is an interesting concept I read works by all three of these authors before and I felt each of the sections stayed true to what I expected from each of them The premise of this is pretty ridiculous a batty oldermiddle aged Scottish laird kidnaps women from a neighboring house party right before a nasty snowstorm so that they be stuck in the castle with his nephews who he was hoping to marry off I mean you can t get a whole lot sillier than that but I chose to just go with it One must also GROSSLY overlook the love at first sight trope rampant in each of these stories However it ended up being pretty entertaining. Step into the glittering world of Regency and prepare to have your hearts warmed by Julia uinn Eloisa James and Connie Brockway During their annual Christmas pilgrimage to Scotland to visit their aged uncle in hi.
The first story by Julia uinn is the most lighthearted and funniest of the three At first I had a little bit of trouble following all of the characters and backstories and of course J s lack of skill in the Alien dialogueepartment but it overcame that to be good cotton candy fun Catriona the only aughter of a wealthy Scottish family is matched with a uke who is there by accident That in and of itself is very far fetched but this section was full of Lights, Camera, Action (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 1) double entendre and goofy jokes and puns that had me snorting Pure maple syrupy HR and honestly one of the better things I ve read from J It also worked pretty well with the shorter story format I would rate this story alone at a 4 The second story was the weakest imo It was the most emotional and serious of the three stories and it suffered from the shorter story format It seemed ludicrous to me to have the MC soing so much Becoming a Church that Cares Well for the Abused deep conversing about their relationship and their pasts and motivations when they only just met I found it kind of hard to follow at first but it The Nonlinear Workbook: Chaos, Fractals, Celluar Automata, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, Gene Expression Programming, Support Vector Machine, Wavelets, Hidden Markov M did get better I have to say that I loved the h in this one honestly I loved all of the h s in all three stories but the story probably needed to be full length or changed up to be less passionate in such a short amount of time I rate this one a 3The third story was also a bit serious but not uite so much as the second Here Cecily and Robin both are rocked by a rather extreme case of love at first sight but Robin thinks that Cecily is above him so he tries his hardest to avoid her Cecily is fun as she transforms from a seemingly cold proper lady into a strong independent woman who Coming Out of Communism doesn t care what anyone thinks and willo whatever it takes to get what she wants I Ways of Knowing About Birth d rate this one a 4Overall this is fun holiday HR that I would recommend It s not perfect but it s cute and has that guilty pleasure reading feel that makes you all warm and gushy inside Taran Ferguson tired of waiting for his two nephews to marry and secure the family line takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps four young women He and his band of merry clansmen barge into the ballroom of Bellemere Castle grab the ladies and hightail it out of there in the Duke of Bretton s carriage With the snoozing Duke insideArriving at Finovair Castle just ahead of a huge snowstorm that blocks the pass thus preventing a uick rescue Taran presents the ladies to his nephews who are unimpressed with his high handed tactics Unable to return the ladies the nephews theuke and the candidates settle HeroAca down to wait out the storm Penned by three romance writers Julia uinn Eloisa James and Connie Brockway The Lady Most Willing is not an anthology as such with three separate stories Written instead as one full length novel by the three authors it features three almost four romancesThe male cast includes John Shevington Duke of BrettonByron Wotton Earl of OakleyRobert Robin Parles Comtee RocheforteAnd the ladies Lady Cecily TarletonCatriona BurnsFiona ChisholmMarilla ChisholmI won t spoil it and say who ends up with whom But will tell you what made this novel really amusing was the machinations of the spoilt young and opportunistic Marilla who s out to make the most of the situation and snare herself the most high ranking gentleman As each gentleman is paired up with each of the women Marilla moves Reading Africa into American Literature down the line to the next available manSurprisingly cohesive I simply couldn t tell which author wrote what Had I not known I would have thought a single author had written the whole story With three stories the pace of the romances moves pretty briskly with everyone falling in love uicklyThis is a great story with plenty of humour and as you expect from these three talented authors it s very well writtenSteam 3 ARC courtesy of Avon via Edelweiss Even after countless re reads I still love this book It s not perfect and maybe of a 4 star read but since I end up going back to this whenever I need a really good laugh and a short heartwarming story I m sticking to my original 5 stars Granted all three stories suffer from love at first sight which most of the time I BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) don t buy but here it works for me but still I love this And Iare anyone not to laugh at the caber tossing incident in Julia uinn s awesome story Right so even if you Algorithm Of Future don t know for certain which relationship is which author the first third is funny and charming so it s Julia uinn the second third has horses so it s Eloisa James which means that Connie Brockway wrote the last third in which something already turning bad gets much much worse Luckily the theme of getting worse happens steadily from about 33% onwards so you can stop any time you like and be safe in the knowledge you re not missing outJulia uinn s section is really very good Catriona and Bretton fall in love over the course of oneay which The Progressive Guide to Alternative Media and Activism Project Censored Open Media Pamphlet Series 8 doesn t really make sense but it s witty and simple with well fleshed out characters and frankly my na ve self believes it I recommend In My Shoes ditching after this bit to be honestEloisa James s story is a mess It s basically built on literary references mainly Austen s Persuasion a Burns poem but also a heavy handed Lord Byron theme whichoesn t really work because it has no relevance to anything except the name of the hero Byron The plot is also ridiculously wild but insists on taking itself seriously To summarise they have a BWWM (An African American Romance) (BWWM Paranormal Scifi Romance) dramatic conversation in the library and he s apparently a stickler for propriety because of some This is the story of several unlikely couples who come together over strange well meaning kidnapping circumstances as told by threeifferent authors The first couple is written by Julia uinn and that portion of the story Loosening the Grip deserved five stars easily I literally laughed out loud several times and absolutely loved it The second couple was by Eloisa James and I would say it was good maybe 35 stars The last one by Connie Brockway was my least favorite and was unfortunately for her the first time I had read anything by her whichidn t make me keen to seek out So really based on averages this should be a three star.
