As a minor pet peeve, I wonder why all four stories felt compelled to focus on dukes. Oct 17, Pamela rated it liked it 2. Objectively, Sarah Maclean's story was extremely well-written Mest had more depth, insight and substance than one can usually expect from a holiday novella. Honestly, though, I found the last two of these four stories tedious even as novellas and can't imagine finishing them i 2.

Unless she catches a wealthy husband at the ball tonight, the horrid, heartless Duke of Thorndale will evict her family from their beloved Mayfair home. This duke is in no hurry to marry and especially not to an Englishwoman with very different plans for her future.
Eben is very tender, and Jacqueline is very weary. You may want to keep a tissue or two on hand. Holidays are for whimsy and charm--the only two things his money cannot buy. I liked the service staff, but the main couple was meh.
How the dukes stole christmas
It took some getting used to. Physical desire was certainly present but the emotional connection I was looking for wasn't there for me and while I liked and admired the heroine a lot, I had a of issues with the hero.
Characters would go from sounding like an overly proper robot to a silly teen outside the movie theater in the blink of an eye. I read this first novella in the anthology duked before bed and was gifted with sweet dreams all night. The actual writing made it impossible for me to get into this story or its characters, though, and I had to force myself to finish.
I wanted to like this one more than I actually did. Joanna Shupe - Points for a different setting NYC and an original, promising premise would-be journalist who's famous for her cooking column despite not actually knowing how to cook. I tend to love novellas since I often lack the patience for the drawn out miscommunications and repetitiveness that longer romance novels bring us.
When the paper's owner, Duke Havemeyer, insists she host a Christmas party, Rose must scramble to find a husband, an empty mansion, and a cook. This was a wonderful set of novellas that I really loved for the most part!

Lady Jacqueline Mosby is full of both, even now, twelve years after she left to see the world. Jordan brings the spice to this stranded by snow romance one of my favorite tropes set in the Scottish Highlands. There's just something about a Highlander Cue highway men and mayhem. The premise was kind of a 19th century "Home Alone", only involving a sensible yet of course plucky heroine and ayou guessed itgrumpy duke and a nearly deserted Scottish castle.

Lady Jacqueline Mosby is full of both, even now, twelve years after she left to see the world. From the ballrooms of London, to abandoned Scottish castles, to the snowy streets of Gilded Age New York, four bestselling authors whip up some unforgettable romance I can't recall whether I've read Sophie Jordan before, but this definitely didn't inspire me to search for her other books. The story was sweet and mildly humorous albeit not as witty as most of her longer work and had a few well-written lines that I highlighted on my Kindle, but even as a huge and probably biased Tessa Dare fan, I can't claim this was among her most memorable and impactful pieces of work.
This one is a real heart-tugger. Honestly, though, I found the last two of these four stories tedious even as novellas and can't imagine finishing them if they'd been full-length novels.
The ballroom scene between Louisa and James reminded me a lot of Darcy and Elizabeth's infamous first dance in Pride and Prejudice. There was also a TON of Christmas in this. I love books that tohight set in the Highlands, but I honestly could not figure out what was being said at times without actually reading parts out loud. A series of flashbacks, interspersed among the characters' current-day scenes, reveal the events that have brought them to their reunion, with a few unexpected turns along the way.

Now the duke's holding her future in his hands I felt like I got a fully fleshed out novel with the backstory, the baggage that each of the characters carry, and all the feelings and emotions as they figure out their past and their future. Shupe is a talented writer and I have enjoyed her full-length Gilded Age novels but this story just didn't work for me.
