What a sweet holiday collection! Like a decadent chocolate advent calendar, there's a delectable treat for each of the first twenty-four days of December. We have quite a collection of Regency tropes - mistaken identities, older brother's best friend, childhood friend, arranged marriage, misunderstandings, and even one that takes place among the service class. Each is a standalone romance with a HEA, and each is just about a chapter long - just enough to satisfy a quick craving. Like the best candy treat, these stories leave the reader wishing for just a little bit more to savor. It's a marvel that the author can create such compelling characters in such short stories, but anyone familiar with the author's other works will recognize her gift in creating delightful tales. If you're looking for a book that will deliver a series of quick fixes for the romance addict, look no further. This book was written for you. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I didn't read this like it was meant to be read (one story a day.) I think it's a great advent calendar. I enjoyed all the stories. It's perfect for a reader that's busy, but still wants to read a story. I can't pick a story I liked the best. I can't say that one stood out as my least favorite either. I can say that I will re-read these stories in the future. That's high praise from me. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

What a wonderful way to count down to Christmas, a perfect advent calendar for romance lovers. Twenty-four heartwarming stories, each with a Christmas kiss and a happy ending. Start your day, take a break, or relax before bed with a nice cup of chocolate and a sweet bit of holiday romance. A set of short, sweet, and smart stories to make you smile and look for mistletoe. I received an ARC of this book via BookSprout. I also won a copy in a GoodReads giveaway. My review is voluntary.
