“She looked, he had to admit, quite surprisingly attractive. Even more surprisingly, she struck him as desirable, too, so much that for a moment he found himself imagining what it would be like to peel away those ridiculous sleeves and press his lips to the bare skin beneath, to find the pulse in her wrist and then work his way up her elbows and shoulders, all the way to the hollow at the base of her throat.”
There are just times when all a girl needs to chase away the stresses of the world is a good Harlequin book.
A snowy Victorian Christmas Two festive short stories!
In The Christmas Runaway by Jenni Fletcher, willful, independent heiress Fiona MacKay impulsively runs away to a remote Scottish tower, where she’s trapped in the snow with equally headstrong, deliciously disheveled Angus Drummond.
In Their Snowbound Reunion by Elisabeth Hobbes, Amy Munroe and Anthony Matthews were cruelly parted fifteen years ago, and each blames the other. When Amy becomes Anthony’s new housekeeper, their passion is reawakened!
Snow Kissed Proposals has two wonderful short historical romance books in one. I thought both were absolutely perfect little escape reads to read on a chilly afternoon.
The Christmas Runaway by Jenni Fletcher is a charming, forced proximity, enemies to lovers romance book. I was swept into this lovely wintertime love story with its fun engaging characters and enchanting atmosphere. The flow and pacing were perfect for a short Harlequin read, and it had just the right amount of smouldering moments between Fiona and Angus. I am a huge fan of forced proximity and enemies to lovers trope, so this short story was right up my alley.
Their Snowbound Reunion by Elisabeth Hobbes is a second chance and forced proximity romance. I like this book, it was a little different from your typical Harlequin romances, and I found the different storyline refreshing and had me turning the page to find out what would happen next between Anthony and Amy. I found myself really enjoying the second chance romance aspect of this book, something I usually don’t like. Elizabeth did a great job at creating endearing and genuine characters that readers can’t help but love.
If you are looking for a nice comfort read and are a fan of Harlequin Historical books, I would highly suggest you pick up Snow Kissed Proposals.
Thank you Harlequin Historical for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
