Readers will love this selection of six historical romance novellas set in the British Isles.
My review: Sarah M Eden is a master of writing British Isles romances! I loved every one of these novellas. I had planned to just read the two new ones, because I had already read the others. But once I got started reading them I didn't want to stop, so I read all of them again and enjoyed the experience just as much as I did the first time I read them, and maybe even a bit more! I'm going to just talk about the two newest novellas because I've previously talked about the others.
In A Friend Indeed, Caroline Downy feels as though she has been sold to the highest bidder because her family is poor and her father has been trying to marry her to a wealthy man. She has been betrothed to George Barrington, and old and dear family friend and she believes that his only motivation is to help her family's situation. She's never even imagined marrying for love and it hurts her heart to think the one man she's ever loved could have married her for money.
A Happy Beginning has us meeting Sophia Pemberton, she's a governess for a family in Scotland. The whole family is unkind and she doesn't have a friend in Scotland, until she meets Dermot Buchanan. He's the stable master with a secret life that no one knows anything about. At first he refuses to even be friends, but soon Sophia is able to break down his defenses.
I loved both of these romances, the only wish I had was that they be longer! Sarah Eden has such a way with writing characters, you almost feel as though you knew them and I almost felt as though I was in the same place as them. If you love clean, amazing romance, these books are for you!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
