2.0 out of 5 stars There Are Better Christmas Regency Books 12 Dec 2012
By Kathryn Smith - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My question to the other reviewers before I give my review:
Did you actually read all three stories - entirely - before you gave your review?

"Snowbound Wedding Wishes" is the title of this Christmas Regency collection of stories.
However, only one story is about being snowbound, the rest about other romance plots, not 'wedding wishes.' It would have been more interesting, and different storylines from previously published Regency Christmas stories, if the heroines and the heroes of the stories had potential 'wedding wishes.'

Instead, two of the stories were too similiar to previously written stories by other Regency romance authors. The first story was the only one I would call "orginial" in storyline. The plots were all too familiar.

"An Earl Beneath The Mistletoe" - started as refreshingly new hero in a different storyline, a different type widow-heroine. However, when the snow fell, they were snowbound, the story ground to a halt, nothing new or interesting.

"Twelfth Night Proposal" - When I began reading this story I was amazed the editor allowed this story to be printed. This was obviously Lucy Ashford's first writing. The is an excerpt from the first page of the story (no changes were made, this is what was printed ...)

"Last night, after two days of travelling through endless rain, he and his loyal groom Henry had finally reached the hilly spa town of Buxton in Theo's curricle and four. This morning Theo had decided he would head on alone, while Henry returned with the curricle to London, for the last stretch of the journey had proved beyond doubt that Theo's high-sprung conveyance wasn't built for Derbyshire roads. Henry had examined it tenderly this morning, then glanced at the sombre hills that surrounded the highest town in England."

Sorry, my apology, this story was a torture to read and I fought myself not to bring out a red pen. When I read an author's writing of this ... 'quality,' it makes me wonder if I should be writing a Christmas Regency romance and submit the manuscript myself.

"Christmas At Oakhurst Manor" - Vivien Hastings, our heroine, is invited to stay at the manor, with her two children, for Christmas. Also invited is Vivien's former love Max Calderwood. An interesting situation, of a widow meeting the former love of her life, fell flat and uninteresting. My apology, I am sorry this storyline, plot has been done before more than once by other more talented Regency romance writers.

To capture Regency romance readers' attention with Christmas stories, work on your writing, invent new and interesting characters, storylines, plots, and not the use of cheap soft porn sex to sell the book.

I gave this book 2 stars as at least two of the stories were readable.

OK now, I'm finished and all of you can start throwing rotted fruits and vegetables at me.

Happy Holidays! Please have a nice read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snowbound Wedding Wishes is a delightful collection of three charming Regency novellas from three wonderful authors 22 Mar 2013
By Julie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Snowbound Wedding Wishes is a fantastic collection of three Regency novellas from much-loved authors Louise Allen, Lucy Ashford and Joanna Fulford.

In Louise Allen's An Earl Beneath the Mistletoe, the jaded Major Hugo Travers is on is way to a family gathering when he finds himself caught up in a snow storm. He knocks on the door of a nearby ale house and is stunned when he meets the most beautiful woman he has ever clapped eyes on: the widowed alewife Emilia Weston. Thrown together by fate and united by a passion that simply cannot be denied, Emilia and Hugo soon find themselves falling madly in love with one another. But will the cold light of day destroy their burgeoning happiness? Or will a Christmas miracle give them the happy ending they both so richly deserve?

In An Earl Beneath the Mistletoe, the talented Louise Allen has penned a heart-warming story that sparkles with hope, humour and heart. Wonderfully written, immensely compelling and sublimely romantic, An Earl Beneath the Mistletoe is another triumph for this terrific writer of historical romance!

In Lucy Ashford's Twelfth Night Proposal, the arrogant Theo Dalbury is not exactly overjoyed when he is informed that he's inherited a country estate in rural Derbyshire. Theo has got no intention of rusticating in a country estate in the middle of nowhere, however, his plans for a quick visit fall by the wayside when he meets pretty country girl, Jenna. The more time Theo and Jenna spend together, the more they find themselves attracted to one another. But will old wounds and past secrets force them apart?

Lucy Ashford ticks all the right boxes with this moving, tender and highly enjoyable Regency novella. Twelfth Night Proposal is a beguiling, seductive and heart-warming tale with a fantastic heroine, a swoon-worthy hero and plenty of engaging emotional romantic drama that will keep readers mesmerized from beginning to end!

In Joanna Fulford's Christmas at Oakhurst Manor, the widowed Vivien Hastings is looking forward to a quiet Christmas - until she finds out that she's going to be spending the season with the one man she has never managed to forget: Max Calderwood. Vivien has never quite managed to get over Max's devastating betrayal, but when long-buried feelings and never forgotten emotions rush back to the fore, Max and Vivien quickly realise that they must act quickly - or else risk losing their last chance at happiness...

Joanna Fulford has penned an emotional, compelling and powerful romantic story that brought a tear to my eye! Plumbing the depths of the human heart with sensitivity, depth and aplomb, this fantastic writer of historical romance has written a spectacular Regency novella readers will not easily forget!

Readers are in for a treat with this marvellous collection of sparkling Regency short stories! Enjoyable, engrossing and unmissable, Snowbound Wedding Wishes deserves a place on keeper shelves everywhere!
3.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best Christmas Anthology I've Read 14 Jan 2013
By carolyn - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read several regency anthologies this Christmas Season and it was certainly not my favorite. I am very glad it was a library Kindle rental and not a purchase.

It should be noted that the authors are English Authors using British English, which, if you don't enjoy/understand that kind of English you may not fully enjoy the stories. I myself don't have a problem understanding and enjoying British English, but it is a point to consider and something that is acquired by reading more of it.

The stories on their own probably would have gotten more than 3 stars. They just weren't the "gee I wish I were there with the characters" kind of books that I give higher ratings. With the programming problems as noted below I just couldn't go to a 4.

I found it very difficult to move about this Kindle book itself since the `Table of Contents' page only brings up the first story with all of its chapters. If you don't want to read the stories in the order they are printed, you have to find the 2nd or 3rd stories by jumping forward chapter to chapter until you reach the 2nd and 3rd stories OR HUNT through the first ten pages to find the other two stories. All-in-all very poorly set up for Kindle reading. Whoever set it up did a very bad job. If you start at the beginning and read straight through to the end, there are no problems.

I like to read books similar to this to help get into the Christmas spirit. These tales were okay and accomplished that, but none of the stories was memorable, or encouraged me to seek out other books by these authors
