My Review:

What goes together better than history and romance? Very little, and this anthology of historical romance novellas definitely proves that point.

Each of the authors has their own way with words, creating remarkable and heartfelt stories that will make you giggle while transporting you back in time. Romance fuels the day as couples come together despite the odds (or because of them). I enjoy how each author stays true to the historical time period in which they write but also flaunts convention. It made for some very interesting tales.

This is one of those fantastic anthologies that is just as enticing in its separate parts as it is to read from cover to cover. It’s a must read for all those who enjoy a historical romance and for those looking for some quick reads to dip their toes into the genre.
