“I ultimately thought this collection was fun and enjoyable.”
~ Under the Covers

I haven’t read a lot of Eloisa James books before.  To be honest, I picked this up because I thought it was part of the Wildes of Lindow Castle series.  Yes, I need to read more blurbs because OBVIOUSLY that’s not what this book is.  Is actually a collection of really short stories.  The book is already novella length and it has 3 stories in it.  These are all about characters I know nothing about.  If you’ve been reading Eloisa James for a while you’ll know who they are or maybe they’re completely unrelated.  I can’t answer that question.

What I can say is that as much as I struggle to connect with novellas about characters I don’t know, I ultimately thought this collection was fun and enjoyable.  It may not be the strongest historical romance read or even a must read, but it was a cute way to pass one after.  They are all very quick reads and there’s as the title suggests, there’s something delightful about them.

I think this would be a good mood picker-upper type of book and now I’m ready to dive into the next book by this author.

About Eloisa James

New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James writes historical romances for HarperCollins Publishers. Her novels have been published to great acclaim. A reviewer from USA Today wrote of Eloisa's very first book that she "found herself devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar"; later People Magazine raved that "romance writing does not get much better than this." Her novels have repeatedly received starred reviews from Publishers' Weekly and Library Journal and regularly appear on the best-seller lists. After being a finalist for a RITA—the top award in the genre of romance fiction awarded by the Romance Writers of America—over ten times, she won in 2013.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
