Loving Mister Lockwell
Poor Lady Isabel Whitton. It's so hard when all you want to do is have your nose in the book, while the rest of your family rather see you doing other things that young ladies are suppose to do. Now she's stuck at the castle with the whole family coming. Not a great place to be for an introvert like Izzy.
Izzy's life got a little more crazier with the arrival of Lord Heathfield and his guest Mr. Damien Lockwell. Being a third son and in her mind a scoundrel and so forth. Yet, Damien can't keep himself away from Izzy, like a bug to a light. Crazy after all since he has no desire to marry, but could he change his tune?
A Second Chance for Christmas
A couple of years ago, Philip Whitton thought it would be easier to end his life in order to escape the hurt that was caused by Emily Ware when she married Mr. Barlow. However, his family was able to stop him in the nick of time. So, the Duke of Danby thought it would be a great idea to send off to Italy to study music.
Now the Duke has summoned him home, but he still feels the pain of loss. However, fate has given him a second chance of love when he comes across Emily Barlow trying to walk to the next coaching inn. Will they both be able get past the social barriers that Emily thought there was when they were last together? Or will she hurt Philip again?Read more ›
Knight-Catania's story is simple and assuming you've read book one of the series, highly predictable. The title alone told me where this story was going. I would be lying if I said it didn't make me a little nervous but first impressions can be deceiving. The brilliance of this short is in the telling. Izzy and Lockwell's relationship is reminiscent not of Romeo and Juliet but Benedict and Beatrice. It didn't matter that I knew the outcome because it was so thoroughly entertaining. Certain lines put me in line of Lord of the Rings, Becoming Jane and Aladdin but even so, I found Loving Mister Lockwell both clever and engaging.
A Second Chance for Christmas by Lilia Birney: How do you spice up a sweet regency era romance? You open your story with attempted suicide, drug addiction and death. I love the distinctly dark direction of Birney's opening and though I don't consider myself much of a judge, I think the sex scene was noteworthy in terms of content and because it is the raciest thing to appear in the series thus far. Unfortunately the piece as a whole felt half-baked. Flesh out the back story, gift Emily and Philip a little depth and this is easily one of the strongest installments of the entire collection. As it stands I feel A Second Chance for Christmas falls just a hair short.Read more ›

Light fluff and whirlwind marriages. A Second Chance for Christmas was least enjoyable. Hero attempted to hang himself after being rejected by heroine. Read morePublished 16 months ago by duckling
There are about three stories in this collection. I found all of them to be well written but the plots were way too bland for me.Published on February 16, 2013 by Deanna
One of the better collaborations I have read. The three stories were well related to each other. I'm just not a fan of collaborations.Published on January 30, 2013 by Rembrandt19
