An Entertaining Collection of Stories
Forevermore by Lauren Royal (5 Stars)
I received a free copy of this book from Lauren Royal in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Forevermore is Lauren's story in this collection. It has a fairytale quality to it much like its title; a knight in shining armour wooing a woman who has only known pain in marriage/relationships with men. It is short but sweet and satisfying.
The Handfasting by Glynnis Campbell (5 Stars) - A story of mistaken identity, sibling loyalty and love. This was a charming story with a HEA ending.
Fall from Grace by Jill Barnett (5 Stars) - This was my favourite in the collection, I laughed and chuckled to myself through the story. A fab read!
Heart of Fragile Stars by Cynthia Wright (5 Stars) - This story reminded me of an Errol Flynn movie; swashbuckling pirate and spirited damsel! A lighthearted read, though with a couple of loose ends.
The Four Leaf Clover by Cheryl Bolen (2 Stars) - Found the hero of this old fashioned story rather pompous and didn't feel any chemistry between the pair.
A Winter Heart by Annette Blair (4 Stars) - A heartwarming Amish story about second chances at love.
An excellent read
This is a review of Forevermore by Lauren Royal.
This is a delightful story of Clarice and Cameron. They have an attraction but Clarice is sure that it won't last for a variety of reasons, not the least being that he is a titled gentleman and she is a commoner. There are a number of other differences that Clarice believes will be obstacles to their romance. Her young daughter, Mary, is a sweetheart and I love the interaction between her, Cameron and Clarice. I had come across the characters in previous books and it was good to read their story. Although this can be read as a stand alone novella .
I can recommend this set of novellas, each story quite different and from authors that you will want to read again.
