A beautiful group of Christmas romances. You will really get your money worth in this awesome collection. It is a bit early for me to start reading Christmas stories but when I saw this one I could not pass up the arc it has some of my favorite authors and even a few I have not read. This book was super fun to spend time with. I really did not have a favorite I loved all the stories but the book was offered by Heather Boyd so that is the one I will center on. A reformed scoundrel is the best! Yvette and the scoundrel Luc Ayles find themselves unexpectedly together. On a snow night, a messed up coach, and her brother's friend coming to her rescue what a setup for our tale. This sweet tale has them finding just the most perfect Christmas present every. I liked the characters Yvette does not realize yet what a gem Luc is but you find that out in the first chapter when her is taking care of his cousin. It was a quick read that will put a smile on your face in fact all the pieces in this collection will delight you. I did receive a free copy of this book from Booksprout and voluntarily chose to review it.

CHRISTMAS KISSES ANTHOLOGY: All of the stories were entertaining. Below are two of my favorites. THE WALLFLOWER’S CHRISTMAS WISH (Brides of Bath) by Cheryl Bolen: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I loved reading this story. It feels like a cross between, Cinderella, The Ugly Duckling and the most unlikely opposites attract. A VISCOUNT FOR CHRISTMAS by Suzanna Medeiros: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ A darling sweet story of an accidental compromise between Isaac Thornton and the friend of his younger sisters. Celia has always had a tendre for Isaac but was too young to do anything about it. Years later Celia is now a woman with a matchmaking mama who let Isaac compromise her. A very gentle story; a beloved story of two hearts. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
