Book Description

After attending the funeral of an old school friend, six Regency gentlemen make a pact never to marry, convinced it will save them from meeting the same fate...

In AVA STONE's A Bit of Mistletoe, Everett Casemore, the very serious Marquess of Berkswell, returns home for Christmas, slightly shaken by the death of an old friend. Determined not to suffer the same sort of fate at the hands of a woman, Berks resolves himself to eternal bachelorhood. Unfortunately, both his resolve and his peace of mind are threatened by the arrival of a beautiful, thoughtful, but mostly unsuitable lady. * Miss Theresa Birkin knows better than most that an error in judgment can lead one down an unfortunate path. If only she'd been wiser when she was younger. If only she hadn't followed her foolish heart. If only she'd met Lord Berkswell long before now.

In JANE CHARLES's Lady Disguised, Mr. Sebastian Stanwick never intended to marry. It was bad enough that his father gambled away everything they owned and then drank himself to death, leaving his mother broken until she could not go on. But the death of his good friend at the hand of the man’s wife only solidifies Stanwick’s decision to remain a bachelor. Women were simply unpredictable and unstable if not taken care of properly. * Hélène Mirabelle wants few things in life. One, is to perform on the stage, and the other, is to be out from under the roof of her overbearing new family: Lord Bentley and the Trent brothers. Since her mother’s recent passing, Hélène's desire to return to Milan and the stage has only grown. A husband could never fit into the plans because no decent man would take an actress as a wife. * One fateful night leaves Hélène questioning if being an actress is the only thing she wants, while Stanwick begins to wonder whether all women are truly prone to madness and if they are, he may never get Hélène off of his mind.

In CATHERINE GAYLE’s Thick as Thieves, David Hounslow, the Marquess of Preston, will not stand aside while those he loves are hurt. When it becomes clear his brother-in-law’s guest is up to no good, Preston determines to scrutinize every move of the would-be thief. Not that he minds such a task—Lady Frederica is as beautiful and intelligent as she is enigmatic. Considering her close relation to a wastrel brother and her current proclivity for the less-than-savory, Preston never expected to be won over to the lady’s charms. Yet she just might steal his heart. * Desperation has become Lady Frederica Bexley-Smythe’s constant companion due to her brother’s recent affinity for gambling and carousing. With the fate of both her mother and sister resting upon her shoulders, perhaps the time has arrived for Freddie to bend the rules. How else can she secure their future? Unfortunately, Lord Preston’s scrutiny is complicating her task. Far more perplexing than his perusal is his caring nature, which is distracting her from the treasures she intends to steal. But desperate times call for desperate measures…

4.0 out of 5 stars Just As Good as the Other Pact Pack 5 Nov. 2013
By Lovemuffins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like "A Gentleman's Pact" (of which this is also a part), these three stories are all really well done and basically on the same level of writing which is fantastic. I love it when I get a pack and all the stories are equally good!

Ava Stone's "A Bit of Mistletoe" made me particularly happy since I recently read "My Lord Hercules" and the only thing I found unsatisfying in THAT novella was that Ms. Birkin's plight seemed so sad... but now she gets a HEA! And I couldn't be happier. Especially since I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Berks. Even if he is a bit of a cad. I get the feeling he's not used to the emotions that overwhelm him when he's around Tessie; add in his new fear regarding women and fire pokers and he's all sorts of bumbling. But, deep down, he's a good sort and it's absolutely wonderful for him and Tessie to both get what they deserve.

"Lady Disguised" brings in the Trents... I'm glad I've read some of the other Trent novels because otherwise I might have been a bit confused, but for the most part I think it does a good job of explaining who's who for those who aren't familiar with the family. I definitely adore how strong a female character Helene is and how Stanwick thinks through some of the issues surrounding his friend's recent death and how unfair society can be towards women. The message gets a little bludgeoned, but on the other hand it still works. I thought this was one of the better Trent stories that I've read.

"Thick as Thieves" takes us back to a familiar family - Stahlbridge, the villain of My Lord Hercules and A Bit of Mistletoe, has left his family in rather dire straights. Frederica, his sister and also known as Freddie, is the oldest sister and trying to figure out what she can do to take care of her mother and her younger sister. She doesn't trust her brother to be able to maintain their house much longer or to be able to support them once they're kicked out of it. Preston is suspicious of all ladies right now, but it doesn't help that Freddie starts behaving incredibly suspiciously when she founds out that their host (Preston's brother-in-law) has a practical treasure trove of jewels, etc. that has never been catalogued and that he feels he has no need for. All she wants to do is take care of her family and all Preston wants to do is find out what she's up to... and maybe help her... provide some protection... but certainly not marry her... right? Fantastic =)

Definitely enjoyed the Regency Christmas Pact, both of them, and highly recommend for some nice, enjoyable, light reading.

3 great stories in one book, all have a common link and blend together well, while standing apart and a great story on their own.
I've read both Ava Stone and Catherine Gayles previous work, and this doesn't disappoint fans. This was my first time reading Jane Charles and it was a great introductory for me into her storytelling. Great work Ladies :)
