Format:Kindle Edition
Originally published at Rookie Romance.

The stories in this anthology are sweet, but some are stronger than others, which is why my rating isn't any higher.

Erin's Gift by Nancy Fraser was my favourite of the four stories. It' set in the 1920s, an era i don't usually read about, which was unusual and really interesting. Erin is very sweet, she's trying to get by as best as she can, but one mistake changes everything. Seth, rather reluctantly, steps up to save the day and hires Erin as his son's nanny. The sparks were flying between the two, no matter how they both tried to ignore it. Erin lets the light back into Seth's life, and I thought they were adorable together. This squeezed in a lot of emotion for such a short story.

I also enjoyed Letters at Christmas by Amber Lin. It was sexy and sweet, and the reunited lovers is always a fun trope. They had some issues of trust to work through, but Sidony and Hale clearly loved each other.

Eight Tiny Flames is set during WWII, so it's another unusual historical setting, for me. It was good to see Hanukkah represented in the anthology. Ruth and Joseph are sweet together and I liked the setting, but the story came out as just alright.

An Eternity of You has a lot going on in such a short story. It got to be a bit of a jumble with not enough background information, to be honest. Rebecca and Andrew had a mountain of misunderstandings that were resolved very neatly. I didn't particularly feel the chemistry between them, either.

This anthology is great as the holidays get closer, and has something for all historical lovers, from Regency manor houses to the frontline of WWII. All of the stories have sweet romances, but some are more effective as short stories than others. It's also a great to get a taste for each author's writing.

*I received a review copy from the publisher, for my honest review. Thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars FOUR FABULOUS NOVELLAS TO PUT YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT..... 14 Oct 2013
By My Book Addiction and More - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Four fabulous novellas to put you in the holiday spirit! Each story is a quick, easy, and entertaining read with a common holiday theme designed to give you a blast from the past! I loved reading each story and even though they were all fairly short, the writing was excellent, the plot and characters were well-developed and all the heroes and heroines were down right lovable! If you are looking for a great way to kick off your holiday season, I suggest give this anthology a try! It’s great for reading if you don’t have a lot of time since you can just read one story at a time, but it’s also great for a lazy afternoon of reading! Don’t miss this collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it!!!! 14 Oct 2013
By Sofia Lazaridou - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book much more than I originally expected to. Even though all of them were short I got the feeling of fulfillment and I loved each one for it's own reasons. I loved the heartache of Letters at Christmas by Amber Lin, the spark of humanity that Eight Tiny Flames by Crista McHugh showed me that exists (some parts of the story are true and really happened), the correction of a mistake in An Eternity of You by Sophia Garrett and how someone can finally be happy even after the loss of a spouse in Erin’s Gift by Nancy Fraser.

I had so many feelings while I read these stories and I can't tell you how glad I am that I did. All the authors did a great job and I don't have a sigle complain about the book. Trust me you don't want to miss this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Very Scandalous Holiday 22 Dec 2013
By Angie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A Very Scandalous Holiday is a charming collection of Historical Romance novellas set around the holiday season. They're each from a different time period and have varying levels of holiday cheer and steam. Overall, I did enjoy it, although none of them particularly stood out to me.

Letters at Christmas by Amber Lin ★★★☆☆

This story follows Sidony and Hale's reunion after a three year seperation. They were childhood friends and teenage lovers before Hale set off to sea in order to make his fortune. He didn't want to marry Sidony as a poor man, and he promised to write to her every day that he was away. Well, Sidony didn't received a single later and she is understandably angry when he returns. Hale bets her that she'll accept his marriage proposal before Christmas Day, three days away. Over the next three days, they have several tender moments and some steamy ones! By Christmas, Sidony realizes that letters mean nothing, she just wanted him back home, safe, and with her. As far as holiday cheer goes, this one contains the hottest sleigh ride I have ever seen. Other than that, it was just okay.

Eight Tiny Flames by Crista McHugh ★★★★☆

Set during WWII, Captain Joseph Klein and Leuitenant Ruth Mencher are an army doctor and nurse based near the front lines. Both are Jewish, although Joe keeps it secret. However, Ruth insists on lighting her menorah with him every night, and indulging in some games and dancing. Their romance was very subtle but very sweet! I liked how this story centered about Hannakuh rather than Christmas, since it's not something I've read much about.

Erin’s Gift by Nancy Fraser ★★☆☆☆

I was most excited for this one, since it takes place in 1920 Chicago. Unfortunately, I feel like that amazing setting went to waste. It started off great, with Erin being dragged to a speakeasy with her rich friends. There's a raid and everyone is arrested. Lucky for Erin, her BFF's brother, Seth, is a lawyer and he bails them out, but sadly he can't help her keep her room at the boarding house or her job which have strict rules regarding jail time. Then Seth gives Erin the position as nanny to his son, and she comes to live with them. They spend Thanksgiving and Christmas together and of course fall in love. The story was sweet, but overall it was quite boring. The love story paled in comparison to Erin's flashy night out with friends.

An Eternity of You by Sophia Garrett ★★★☆☆

We're back to the Regency period with this one. The Duke of Sharrington has just returned to town after his father's passing only to find everything in ruin. While he was trying to escape his past, he completely missed his father's failing mental health and ability to care for their properties. Now he's back and determined to set things straight, and get a second chance at love with the local surgeon. I liked this one because I'm a fan of misunderstands and enemies to lovers. Rebecca believes that the duke just abandoned her and turned a blind eye to their son, when really he had no clue. He's desperate to prove his love to her and win her back, and they share a few steamy scenes. This is one story that I would have liked to read a full length book of. I think it would have been stronger if their romance could have been developed more.

*Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley for review. No compensation was offered or accepted.
4.0 out of 5 stars Review by KyBunnies 6 Dec 2013
By Suzie Welker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finished this book about 2 weeks ago. I am still trying to figure out which one was my favorite. I have never been a big fan of reading books set in the 20th century but I really liked Eight Tiny Flames. The characters drew me in and kept going.

If you are looking for a fun captivating read then check this out. It will keep your attention allowing you to escape for a few hours.

Thanks for a wonderful read ladies.

The bunnies and I give this book 4 carrots.
