I read all stories, but a few. Each story involved an animal who was favored: IE horses, dogs, cats, or made a pet IE a chicken, a cow, or rescued IE a lion (from the Royal Menagerie) and a fox.

A chicken remembered the baddie & kept the humans safe! Hard to believe- yes! These were my favorite stories- 1) The Wolf of Heathclove Manor. Farm animals and dogs went missing, the hero suspected wolves were 'in heat.' True? The hero had 'white leprosy' & different skin tones on his face after previous surgeries. 3) The Connecting Door. A husband/ earl took for granted his wife of nearly 30 yrs and wanted to rekindle their emotional intimacy. 4) Pride and Pedigree. A man who disliked people, bred fox terriers, and was snobbish about animal and also people bloodlines. 13) A Heart's Quest. Had a spiritual touch. A MOB lady arrived to find a messy house & her future spouse's young dtr refused to speak (due to grief) & had a pet chicken she took nearly everywhere. 14) Sir Jack & Lady Jill. A grieving man neglected his wife. He fell off his horse, hit his head/ developed amnesia. She proceeded to lie to him: they had a love match, he gave up port, they ate meals to- gether. But when his memory returned.... 15) The Duchess Contract. A bespoke perfumer/ lady was maneuvered into a MOC by her sire. MCs later rescued a lion (realistic?). The H became enamored, of the lady, not the lion. 16) Falling for Felicity. A friend took another look at a bestie's sister. The MCs rescued a fox the night before a fox hunt. 21) Miss Bird's Desperado. (Some spiritual). MCs both had Scottish heritage. 'Nearly an invalid,' Ms Bird's health improved w/ travel + fresh air. "Rocky Mt. Jim" Nugent, former Indian scout + outlaw, now a trapper & mt. guide refused to guide the h to Long's Peak in the Rockies. They went anyway & he saved her life. His comforts included dog Ring & his whiskey. Would he: give up whiskey for the lady?? be tempted to be an outlaw again?? Was he tough? He previously wrestled a grisly bear ! in self-defense & lost an eye. Revised.

    This book is a huge collection of novellas from some of my favorite authors. The price is practically a steal since you’re getting over 20 novellas in one book. The novellas are short and sweet. If you’re needing quick pick-me-ups that don’t take too much time to invest, these are for you. I’ve loved listening to one or two novellas at a time while walking around the neighborhood. They’re cute!

    I’m loving this collection! There are so many great books by so many great historical authors. I’ve only read two of these, but I want to read each and every one of the books. Pride and Pedigree by Jennifer Moore was so great! I loved the dogs in this one. Lulabelle, Alistair’s dog made me laugh a little bit. That little dog kept outsmarting him and getting away from Alistair. Alistair was pretty great too. I loved how much he cared for his dog. And his library. That was the best!

The author did such a great job making all of them jump off the page. That was so great! The other one I read was Wuthering Hounds by Nancy Campbell Allen. I loved the feel of this one. Kind of dark and broody. And the author included a bit of a mystery. I loved that! Clementine and her little dog, Heathcliff, were funny together. Heathcliff is only a puppy and he was constantly into something or doing something he shouldn’t. Clementine loved him anyway. Ethan is a London lawyer who is helping his grandfather take care of his inn. I like that about him. He knows that family is important to him. Ethan didn’t love Heathcliff, but he goes out of his way to help Clementine catch him. I loved how these two work together to solve the mystery! If you love regency romances, this will be a great collection for you! I was sent a copy of Horses, Hounds and Happily Ever After as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.

    This collection of novellas has such a wide variety of stories and writing styles. Some of the authors are new to me but many are old favorites. I enjoyed reading them. The Wolf of Heathclove Manor by Clarissa Kae This story is a little bit beauty and the beast in that there is a wealthy reclusive beast type hero and the poor beauty that wins him over. And there are wolves. I enjoyed watching Cyril's transformation as Josi accepted him immediately without minding his scars. I felt bad that Josi h This collection of novellas has such a wide variety of stories and writing styles. Some of the authors are new to me but many are old favorites. I enjoyed reading them. The Wolf of Heathclove Manor by Clarissa Kae This story is a little bit beauty and the beast in that there is a wealthy reclusive beast type hero and the poor beauty that wins him over. And there are wolves. I enjoyed watching Cyril's transformation as Josi accepted him immediately without minding his scars. I felt bad that Josi had to go through so much trial before her happiness came. And I was happy for their happily ever after. Archie's Second Chance by Jo Perry This is a new to me author. Nice second chance romance.  Once pride was set aside at least.  I've never heard of the riding habit Della had but obviously it is genius. At least once extra buttons are secured.  These two really are well matched and I was happy to see them finally figure out how to get beyond their past.  Thank heavens for good friends and brothers.  The Connecting Door by Josi S. Kilpack This one was really hard for me to read. A married couple that have grown apart is all too common and difficult to change. I found it very sad, right up until the ending. What makes me feel better is that in the ending there was hope for a renewed happily ever after. Pride & Pedigree by Jennifer Moore I loved the friendship between the dogs in this story. They were both pretty smart dogs. And I enjoyed how their humans came to see each other in a different light as well. Their romance was sweet. So glad Alastair was interrupted at the opportune moment. Seconds later would have been too late. But I would have enjoyed hearing that conversation had it been about his moral sense instead of duty. I liked both these characters. Wuthering Hounds by Nancy Campbell Allen I loved the references to Wuthering Heights in this one. I liked the main characters even though I'm not a huge fan of insta-love and I found the dogs amusing. I didn't like the plotline of intrigue with the other family in the inn. Rather a dismal situation but I can see how it gave the characters more reason to be together and gave interest to the time spent stuck at an inn. Connall's Return by Martha Keyes Books written in an accent are not my personal favorite but the story was good. In this second chance romance, I was happy to see these two find their way back to each other. Yours Sincerely, Rose by Jess Heileman This is a love triangle. And a horrible triangle because both choices are so good. I hated that one of them wouldn't get their happily ever after. I was actually kind of rooting for the one that walked away. But I was also happy for the couple. I loved them. Quick and easy read but with some angst. Her Midnight Ride by Jen Geigle Johnson This is a Cinderella story. Or a retelling of it. There were enough similarities to recognize it but definitely enough differences to make it its own. I loved how kind the Prince was and how Ella grew to appreciate/love him because of it. I also loved how Ella was so determined in her desire to maintain her home no matter how overwhelming the task. It is a quick read and sweet fairy-tale love story. A Midsummer's Day Scheme by Rebecca Connolly I love a story that allows a woman to go beyond society's expectations and this was one such. I found Hattie as refreshing as Bram did and thought the story was cute. Maria's Perfect Gentleman by Penny Fairbanks This is a new to me author and I enjoyed her story. Plus, I share a name with the heroine so that is kind of fun. This story has a fun meet-cute and a sweet romance allowing the excessively shy Maria to meet the man that will add perfection in love to her life. I don't know if the story is already out there but it would be interesting to read her cousin's love story as well. Waiting for Willard by Chalon Linton I've never seen a cat behave quite like this one but it was a fun aspect of the story. Fun especially because cats are so often portrayed as evil creatures. It was fun to see one that seemed to have matchmaking in mind. I liked the characters in this story, including the cat and enjoyed the story itself. Floods & Foes by Julie Daines This was a high angst, and sometimes sad story. Of course it ends on a happily ever after but getting there was a journey. The set up to the banishment was far different than I thought it would be. I loved the dog and the part he played in getting to their HEA. ​A Heart's Quest by Julia Ridgmont This story is Christian lit, mail order bride romance with a bit of intrigue. I didn't want to believe who the villain was. It was too sad. And since it was a mail order bride there wasn't any romance involved initially. So much of the set up of the story was just hard. But I ended up liking the perspective groom in the end and we got a happily ever after. Sir Jack & Lady Jill by Anneka Walker This is a sweet second chance to save a marriage romance. The state of their marriage prior to the beginning of the book was so sad. I loved the new and improved Sir Jack but the old one was a poor excuse for a husband as he dealt with survivor's guilt and grief. So glad there is hope for a happy future for them. The Dutchess Contract by Samantha Hastings Fun arranged marriage of convenience story. The animals in this one were more exotic (monkeys, lion) which added to the interest of the story. This one was a little more edgy in terms of kiss descriptions and mentions of the marriage bed. Falling for Felicity by Tiffany Odekirk I loved this best friend's little sister romance. Or brother's best friend? Whichever way you want to look at it. It was sweet and by the end I wanted to give a big "Ahhhh". The Stable Master's Son by Julie Wright This story is reminiscent of Sabrina, which is one I love, so it was fun to read this novella. It doesn't play out exactly like Sabrina but pretty close and I enjoyed reading it. I would have liked to have gone further with the story, perhaps a full length novel just for the continued enjoyment of it. But it was contained well in the length of the novella also. A Prior Engagement by Ashtyn Newbold So cute. I loved the beginning of the story so much. What an entrapment! Ha ha. Makes me laugh. The romance was sweet even as they are just friends. And I loved the dog too. Love Among the Brambles by Rosalyn ​Eves This is a new to me author and I enjoyed her story very much. I love a good governess romance. I would have enjoyed a longer version of it too. And hand feeding kittens is just the sweetest thing. Also, it is a lot of work. I did it once as a teen and it was exhausting. I liked both the main characters and the daughter. My only question is will they keep the housekeeper on? Because she is pretty awful. All the Beauty by Kaylee Baldwin This story had sweet romance as well as sad family relationships. The sweet part is more than the sad part though. The setting for the story was fun and different. And the dog was cute. I like how much mercy played into the story. Miss Bird's Desperado by Brittany Larsen This love story is kind of more harsh than most of this book. It takes place in a harsh, wintry area, with an outlaw drunkard for the hero. Luckily the heroine is up for the challenge and we do get to read the happily ever after. Walking Lady Guinevere by Mindy Burbridge Strunk Cute brother's best friend romance. And I loved the use of the dogs to bring them together. It was fun. May the Best Earl Win by Jo Noelle Cute novella. I have enjoyed the Twickenham series overall so I was excited to read this short one. I love Aunt Nellie and I love the time fuzzball concept. The storyline is interesting and I would enjoy a longer version of it too. I liked both William and Bethany. The romance moves super fast but given the length of the novella that is a necessity. I felt like I learned a good deal about both of them in that short time though. This is a good story to read when you need something that is light, fun, and you don't have a lot of time.

    I’m looking forward to reading this collection. Lots of great authors that I know and some new ones to try.

The Wolf of Heathrow Manor by Clarissa Kae Historical This was my first time reading something by Ms. Kae, I enjoyed her writing style & will have to try her other books. This sort of had a B&B feel too it, with a scarred and broody hero and a kind, beautiful widow. I liked how she was able to see past his scars to the man beneath. I would have liked a little more time spent with them interacting & seeing them fall in love, it happens a bit quickly. Della and Archie's Second Chance by Jolene Perry Victorian - Second Chance Romance Della and Archie were childhood friends, Della thought Archie was going to propose, instead he went off to travel the world. Three year later they are forced together again when his brother and her best friend are getting married. Once they clear the air, they rebuild their friendship. This was a cute story, a bit predictable but a pleasant read. The Connecting Door by Josi S. Kilpack Regency - Married Couple Rekindling Their Love I loved that this story is told entirely from Norman's point of view. Having been married twenty-nine years he is realizing that he and his wife have drifted apart. It was sweet to see him do a lot of self reflection and attempt to re-woo his wife. I enjoyed this one, thought it was sweet. I loved the uniqueness of having characters that are older and already married with grown kids falling in love again. Pride and Pedigree by Jennifer Moore Regency Alastair and Nora are brought together when Alastair's high bred dog keeps escaping and roaming over to Nora's house to play with her dog. The butt-heads a bit over their dogs, but soon realize they had a lot in common. Cute, quick story. Wuthering Hounds by Nancy Campbell Allen Regency Ms. Allen is one of my very favorite authors, I just adore anything she writes. This was a cute romance, fun plot and likable characters - with even a dash of mystery. My only complaint is I wish there had been a bit more, but overall a very entertaining and charming story. Connall's Return by Martha Keyes Highland Historical - Second Chance Romance I really enjoyed this one! Bella and Connell had such great chemistry, fun highland setting, a charming coo and a swoony lost love romance. This is one I'd read again! Yours Sincerely, Rose by Jess Heileman Regency - Childhood friends, Love Triangle Sweet, friends to lovers romance. While both love each other they have things keeping them apart, including her mother making a match for her with another man. This was a bit longer than the other stories I’ve read so far. I enjoyed the characters and pacing and the sweet ending. A Midnight Ride by Jen Geigle Johnson High Fantasy - Cinderellaish Cute story. Ella is left alone in the world when her parents are killed and her brother disappears. She wants to rebuild their castle & bring honor to her family name. But lives in disguise as a servant, not the Lady of the house. She also doesn’t want to honor her betrothal to the prince, but her feelings get confused when she finally meets him and he’s not what she imagined. A Midsummer Day's Scheme by Rebecca Connolly Victorian Enjoyable characters, loved the animals and a cute quick love story. Happens a bit quickly, but was written well so I found it enjoyable.

A Midsummer’s Day Scheme by Rebecca Connolly Hattie was really unique as a main character. I appreciated her ambition and drive. I liked how she went for her passions and how Bram appreciated her for it. I also liked how it wasn’t insta-love (I enjoy it sometimes, but especially with novellas it can feel too fast). It is nice to have more of a connection and friendship emphasized first and less of the romance. Maria’s Perfect Gentleman by Penny Fairbanks Adorable! Loved their romance, it was so soft. Readers!! I appreciated how different the cousins were and how much they supported each other. This story just made me smile, probably my favorite of the anthology! Sir Jack and Lady Jill by Anneka Walker Very sweet, I liked watching them enjoy one another’s company and fall in love. It was an interesting take on the amnesia plot. I liked how though there was tension and angst, there was not unnecessary drama. Falling for Felicity by Tiffany Odekirk I liked the family relationship and how Luke was accepted into the family. Felicity was fun too! I appreciated her tender heart and her will. I was also pleasantly surprised with how much I liked her mother and brother. All of Beauty by Kaylee Baldwin I appreciated how Rosalie found ways to be cheerful and tried to still love her father and brother. It was also a little peek into a time period I don't normally read about. Theo was also very gallant. I liked how they bonded over literature and poetry. These are only a few of my favorites out of the 20 (20!) novellas in this collection! I enjoyed reading this collection and while not all of them are really my favorites, there is something for everyone! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, I was not required to write a positive review.

    This is a great collection of historical romances. Most of them are by authors I've read before but a few authors are new to me. Sir Jack and Lady Jill by Anneka R. Walker--4.5 stars Jack and Jillian have an arranged marriage and though they've only been married a year, he's hardly paid any attention to her, so she decides to runaway to live at a different estate, when Sir Jack is discovered to be injured. A severe bump on the head causes Sir Jack to have a case of amnesia, so Lady Jill uses this This is a great collection of historical romances. Most of them are by authors I've read before but a few authors are new to me. Sir Jack and Lady Jill by Anneka R. Walker--4.5 stars Jack and Jillian have an arranged marriage and though they've only been married a year, he's hardly paid any attention to her, so she decides to runaway to live at a different estate, when Sir Jack is discovered to be injured. A severe bump on the head causes Sir Jack to have a case of amnesia, so Lady Jill uses this opportunity to rewind time and "convince him to love her." I thoroughly enjoyed this take on the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. It was fun to see Jill flirt with the husband she barely knew and watch Jack fall in love with her. Of course Jack starts to remember things before Jill has a chance to come clean with him but happily it all works out and their arranged marriage becomes a love match. May the Best Earl Win by Gemma Stuart--4.5 stars Earl and Lady Cottrell are blessed with twin boys (William and Randolph) but the elderly midwife failed to "mark the first" child born so they don't know which son will be the next Earl. The parents decide to "raise them as equals and decide later." Meanwhile in 2011 Bethany Mills visits Twickenham Manor on a trip to England. While chasing her escaped pup she wanders onto the third floor of the manor, then finds herself waking up disoriented. Bethany and her pup had been transported back to 1822. During her month-long stay at Twickenham (she has to wait for the next Full Moon Ball to return to her time) Bethany spends quite a bit of time with William Cottrell leading him to ask her to marry him, although he doesn't know if he'll be the next Earl, and he doesn't know that Bethany is not from his time. It was great to be back at Twickenham Manor and get to visit with Aunt Nellie again. Bethany and William's first meeting was adorable as she flirted with him not knowing who he was. It was fun to see things through Bethany's eyes, as someone who'd only read about the Regency era. I wondered how the parents would decide which son would become the heir, and loved that it didn't matter to Bethany if William was chosen.

    I received an ARC of Falling for Felicity I love Tiffany's books. My only issue with this one is that it's not longer! It's it the jumping off of a new series? Will it connect to Summerhaven? I have questions and I am excited to hopefully read books that provide the answers! . Here are my book notes: - the best regencies include at least one scene when the girl is covered in mud. - I think Luke is such an attractive name - oh, Luke Townsend.

    This is a cute anthology of short stories by a collection of wonderful authors. I loved how each of the stories had some sort of animal in the story. I liked that each story was unique but still had the happily ever after that you are looking for. I liked that you can read anyone of the stories and know that it will be a good story. I received a complimentary book from publishers, publicists, and or authors. A review was not required and all opinions and ideas expressed are my own.

    What a great collection from many of my favorite authors and some new ones as well.  The Wolf of Heathclove Manor by Clarissa Kae - Josi and Cyril's story is sweet. They are both kind of outcasts, but they find love in each other.  Archie’s Second Chance by Jo Perry - I loved Archie and Della's second chance. Their friendship was so easy and wonderful once they got over the messy bits. I loved Della's determination and Archie desire, but indecisiveness. These two will be great together.  The Connec What a great collection from many of my favorite authors and some new ones as well.  The Wolf of Heathclove Manor by Clarissa Kae - Josi and Cyril's story is sweet. They are both kind of outcasts, but they find love in each other.  Archie’s Second Chance by Jo Perry - I loved Archie and Della's second chance. Their friendship was so easy and wonderful once they got over the messy bits. I loved Della's determination and Archie desire, but indecisiveness. These two will be great together.  The Connecting Door by Josi S. Kilpack - Norman and Martha's story is sweet. It is a good reminder to us all that we need to keep the love alive and not take each other for granted.  Pride & Pedigree by Jennifer Moore - Alastair's name is just as pretentious as he is at the beginning of this book. I'm glad Nora starts to rub off on him. This was a fun story. You have to love Lulabelle and Major and their help in bringing this about.  Wuthering Hounds by Nancy Campbell Allen - I haven't read Wuthering Heights yet, so I can't account for that part of this story. However, I enjoyed Ethan and Clementine's relationship. They were both sweet people who fit so perfectly.  Connall’s Return by Martha Keyes - I loved this Scottish second chance romance. Bella and Connall were so good together. I loved how easy their friendship was and how good they were for each other.  Yours Sincerely, Rose by Jess Heileman - Man I really felt for Colin and Rose. What a difficult situation, but also what a rewarding one. My husband has had poor health most of our marriage. I like to think, knowing what I know now, that I still would not have hesitated to marry him. I'm so glad Colin and Rose got their second chance at HEA.  Her Midnight Ride by Jen Geigle Johnson - A sweet Cinderella story. I loved Ella's determination, even if she was a little naive. Prince Stefano was just as you'd wish a prince charming to be, kind, considerate and loving. I enjoyed their love story.  A Midsummer’s Day Scheme by Rebecca Connolly - Hattie has some serious gumption. I loved her character. She took Bram completely by surprise. This was a fun read. I'm sure these two will be very happy.  Maria’s Perfect Gentleman by Penny Fairbanks - This was a really funny meet cute. Sandy was such a fun dog in this story and added a lot to their romance. Richard and Maria were so sweet together. He really was the perfect gentleman. I kind of wish we'd had his POV as well. I would have enjoyed seeing what he was thinking. A really sweet story.  Waiting for Willard by Chalon Linton - I love the title. It fits the story so well. Willard and Charlene are so good together. I loved their friendship and the connection they had. Once they got out of their own way it was beautiful.  Floods & Foes by Julie Daines - I cannot even imagine the devastation Chloe was feeling after the storm and then to find the man who betrayed her would have been so hard. I'm grateful she and John got a second chance. What a hard situation, but a special ending.  A Heart’s Quest by Julia Ridgmont - Not my favorite. There was a lot going on and because of that and the length of a novella I felt it wasn't fully developed. I think it had potential if it was longer, but I just didn't see the relationship really develop in the short time, which was sad because I think it could have been a beautiful romance. I liked Camilla and Spencer and was happy they got a HEA, but I wanted so much more.  Sir Jack & Lady Jill by Anneka Walker - A fun retelling of Jack and Jill. I don't agree with Jill's lying, but at the same time I don't blame her for trying to get a second chance at a happy marriage. When they were together without all that baggage between them they were really sweet together.  The Duchess Contract by Samantha Hastings -  I loved this story. Selina and Theo were such interesting people. It was interesting that they had a similar wedding day to Jack and Jill in the previous story. Luckily it didn't take them as long to fall in love.  Falling for Felicity by Tiffany Odekirk - Luke and Felicity's story was so sweet. I loved how they rekindled their friendship and how it quickly led to more.  The Stable Master’s Son by Julie Wright - I love the movie Sabrina, both the old and new. This was a fun retelling of that story with a boy playing the part of Sabrina. Holden and Clara are wonderful people. I really enjoyed their story.  A Prior Engagement by Ashtyn Newbold - I am so glad Oliver and Julia's story was a novella. Their story could have been drawn out into a novel with him fretting over his injuries and inadequacies. I'm so glad that didn't happen. These two were meant to be together and luckily Rupert helped them realize that.  Love Among the Brambles by Rosalyn Eves - So many times I wanted to know Edward's POV. What was he really thinking. I'm glad we finally got a glimpse at the end. Charlotte and Edward had several sweet and confusing moments. The moments with the kittens were my favorites. This was a sweet romance.  All of Beauty by Kaylee Baldwin - The Crystal Palace Exhibition sounds magical. What a fun place to fall in love. Theo and Rosalie were so sweet together. I enjoyed this story.  Miss Bird’s Desperado by Brittany Larsen - Not one of my favorites. I didn't connect with Jim. His character bugged me. I did like Isabella's spunk and independence. I felt the story has potential and maybe if it had been longer I would have connected better with the characters.  Walking Lady Guinevere by Mindy Burbidge Strunk - This was such a fun story. I loved it! Colin and Mariah are so funny together and Biscuit just added to the fun. A very sweet and fun romance.  May the Best Earl Win by Gemma Stuart - This is a time travel story. I was surprised when it jumped to the future and then they mentioned Twickenham Manor and I realized this is part of that time travel series. Bethany and William's story was short and sweet. I wish it had been longer just to develop their relationship more. I felt it was based more on attraction than actual love, because there wasn't a lot of development.

    This is a cute and fun collection of some incredible authors. I read Sir Jack and Lady Jill by Anneka Walker and adored it! The story was super sweet and I felt like I was able to get fully invested even with-it being novella length. The romance was great and the plot so original. I look forward to reading the other novellas, but knowing the authors in this collection, it will keep being a five-star read over and over again.

    I enjoyed these stories so much! It was really interesting to read all the different writing styles, characters, and settings with the theme of animals tying them all together. I especially loved Floods & Foes; Her Midnight Ride; Yours Sincerely, Rose; The Connecting Door; Connall’s Return; A Midsummer Day’s Scheme; Sir Jack and Lady Jill; All of Beauty; and The Duchess Contract.

    I received a copy of this book from author Rosalyn Eves in exchange for an honest review. I loved having 20 clean historical romance novellas in one collection! Each story features an animal who helps each couple connect. I found each story delightful! I felt there was a discrepancy between the skill of the writers and with 20 authors, this is bound to happen. Some of the stories were definitely better written than others, but overall the book was a resounding success for me.

    Sooo I've now read all books and wrote little reviews for all of them (but they are in the order that I've read them and as I'm a mess, thats not the order in the book) :) The total review is just the reviews mathematically rounded😂 Maria' s perfect Gentleman, 1 star, Annoying af, the most predictable plot I've read this year (and I basically only read romance with HEA) and the most bland charaters I've ever seen.

Pride and Predigee (amazing title) 3 stars, cute nice slight twist on Pride and Predjudice but not too much of it so it's still its own book The connecting door 3 stars, very strong character redemption, kinda weird that all was brought on by that one event Her Midgnight Ride, 1.5 stars, like no. I was the whole time hoping that the plot would not be that the prince had all figured out all along but... And Prinny was an asshole at that time... (that kinda pulled me out) A Midsummer's Day Scheme 5 stars. Amazing. Absolutely hilarious how two people who are just an exact image of me fall in love. (kinda fast though) The stable master's son 2 stars, ahhh I don't know it was annoying to see all these annoying characters (somehow really all of them annoyed me) that I therefore didn't really come to care about. Sir Jack & Lady Jill 3 stars ? I hate that the whole book she was lying. And I mean she didn't had to. But they were kinda cute. A prior Engagement 4 stars. Loved finallyy hearing Oliver and Julia's story (as I have read about all siblings... :)) Very cute Very good writing May the best Earl Win 2 stars because it was so short. Errh what. I was so confused. Time travel. Birth of twins. No identified heir. A couple that fell out of love. Lots of time jumps (gigantic ones) (though i realized them only later). I thought for the whole book the main charaters where the couple of the beginning and it was a flashback. Miss Bird's Desperado 3.5 stars liked it, kinda basic story but very inspiring female main charater. Cute. Kinda Surface (maybe suffered from shortness) Walking Lady Guinevere 3 stars, Fine Enough really not memorable but ok. Was kinda disappointed when she was suddendly liking the dog. I think disliking (never mishandling) animals (e.g. dogs) should be normalized. All of Beauty 3.5 Stars. Really Cute. Very Warm story. Did not suffer from being a short story, had sparks, feelings and developped charaters. By the way I love the idea to give an extra epilogue on the website so only the people who like having an epilogue in the far future can read it. (and if you dont read it it doesnt feel as if you didnt finish) Love among the Brambles 3 stars, Cute, the common story of a governess falling in love with her employer, with the common evil characters. And some kittens. Quite well done. The Duchesa Contract 4 stars. Interesting, quite some new ideas, did not suffer from being short. Good writing. Falling for Felicity 2 stars. Kinda standard ideas, kinda standard executed. A heart's Quest 2 stars. Interesting story i think but weird. And definitely too short that should have been a longer book. And the sudden Ahh I'm in love with you yet. (Even of all the reasons against it). Floods and Foes 3 stars, Quite cute. Though why he wouldn't just tell her immediately is a mystery to me. Waiting for Willard 2 stars mehh has been done far better (e.g. S.M. Eden For love & Honor). The trained cat was funny though. Your's sincerely Rose, 3.5 stars Cute, well written though Mr. Reeves was really a saint. Connal's Return 4 stars, nice. Entertaining, well built charaters, good writing, interesting storyline, right lenght, right charater depth. What I didnt like is that the evil charaters are to have a sudden redemention... (and not a really logical one) Wuthering Hounds 3 stars, cutee, really a fanfic on the bontë... (but i mean that as a compliment) and also the many references were nice. Archie's second Chance 4 stars nice writing style, nice pacing. Was entertaining and held my interest & was the right lenght The Wolve of Heathclove Manor 2.5 stars, fine enough did not go in any detail of her late marriage of her trauma and her homesickness was also just conveniently cured.

FYI: I read anthology books slowly and over time because I like to treat each book as its' own and not lump it together with the others. That way, I enjoy these stores more. I had to start out with my favorite author's (@authortiffanyodekirk) story called #fallingforfelicity. This review is only on this one story from Horses, Hounds & Happily Ever After collection. 📝 Felicity Fairchild has been in love with her older brother's best friend as long as she can remember. But, something happened that left Felicity broken hearted. Her mother is ready for her to marry, but Felicity just wants to be loved for who she is... Luke Townsend cant figure out why Felicity is acting so distant. He misses the free-spirited girl who always was his biggest admirer. Will history may be too much to overcome. What I 🤍: 💕 Childhood Crush 🥰 Swoon-worthy Romance 😉Someone in Denial 🦊 Fox Rescue 👗 Adventurous Heroine 👏 Tiffany has DONE IT AGAIN! 👏 Her books will forever be a must buy for me. She has a way of writing that sucks you in and makes you smile. I always finish her books in a better mood than when I started. I adored this book! Anytime there's an older brother's best friend situation...count me in. I love the history between the characters, and the journey it took for them to evolve their relationship. My only negative about this book is that it ended. Prince's Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steaminess: 🔥

    “Falling for Felicity” is part of the Horses Hounds and Happily Ever After collection, and I could not be more excited about this novella!! I fell in love with Felicity and Luke from page one and was delighted to learn more about their history and their current relationship!! Their interactions were a pleasure to watch and their connection was evident! Tiffany Odekirk writes beautifully and I could almost hear and see the characters speaking and falling in love through her detailed descriptions. “Falling for Felicity” is part of the Horses Hounds and Happily Ever After collection, and I could not be more excited about this novella!!

Tiffany Odekirk writes beautifully and I could almost hear and see the characters speaking and falling in love through her detailed descriptions. This novella has all the excitement and intensity of a full length novel, and has been excellently crafted. I loved that Luke and Felicity had years of friendship prior to the opening of this story, as their history added depth to their relationship and gratification for the reader when their happily ever after finally came about!! Not only was the romance lovely, but I also enjoyed learning more about Ben, Felicity’s brother! His transition from older brother into protector and provider, was wonderful and he fulfilled his job beautifully. I believe that a protective older brother with his sisters best interests at heart is a great addition to any book, and this novella was no exception. Bens role in Luke and Felicity’s story, was subtle yet profound, a fantastic combination! 5/5 stars for the wonderful “Falling for Felicity” and the flawless and enchanting storytelling by Tiffany Odekirk!

If you are hoping for a set of short stories where animals are mentioned as a way of bringing a couple together then this is the book for you!

I'm not talking about only the dress, but the way that the words that flowed from each persons thoughts or mouths. I do love a period romance, but I have to say that two stories did grip me more than others. The first was actually the first story, The Wolf of Heathclove Manor, I can see why they put it first. A touch of Beauty and the Beast meets Welsh countryside and I was a sucker for every dripping word of this prose. The second was "Love Among the Brambles" which is of course by one of my favorite authors, Rosalyn Eves, I do love a employee/employer relationship with a love at first sight element. This did not disappoint and it made my heart swell at the ending. The only thing that I could have wished more about it was an Epilogue!

I would enjoy getting lost in Felicity and Luke's story even more, so if the author ever decides to make this a full-length novel, I'm there! This story hit all of my novella requirements. The story wasn't rushed, the characters were realistic, and I was able to lose myself in their world. I could relate to Felicity in so many ways...I would much rather be in the country than the city, and I am rather clumsy... not to mention socially awkward. I think the story easily could have felt like one of those insta-romances that are so common in this genre, but the author skillfully told it in a way to make sure Felicity and Luke's relationship didn't come across that way. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to finishing the rest of the stories in this anthology.

But that choice also comes with staying with the person who makes them complete or leaving them behind. And it also comes with a sprinkle of fairy dust too

    Unbelievably great book! This is a collection of over twenty stories by wonderful authors. If you are like me when you read an anthology you expect at least one weaker book. Well, you won’t find that in this book. Each and every story is so amazingly well written and you just keep wanting more. You read of new romances and some years in the making. Love at first sight, love that grows slowly, and even second chances. You may find new authors you are not familiar with as well as read new works fro Unbelievably great book!

You may find new authors you are not familiar with as well as read new works from authors you already know and enjoy all while you are figuring out how you can get more reading time. A thoroughly wonderful book and it also is for a great cause. Enjoy!! I received an early copy and this is my honest review.

    I loved this book! I pre-ordered this book as soon as it was available to pre-order because I am such a huge fan of several of these authors and anthologies like this one. Especially with beloved animals and feisty women at the forefront of each story. Little did I know that I would get an opportunity to read it pre release (and review of course :)) and it did not disappoint!! One of my favorites was Falling for Felicity by Tiffany Odekirk, and let me tell you! As someone who has written a few l I loved this book!

As someone who has written a few love letters in my time, I appreciated the reality of the situation and the nice kick of deja vu 😜. Definitely give this a read, I can guarantee you'll will love it!!

    This anthology was very well-done! Many different authors come together to tell regency romances in very different settings and situations. There's humour, a mix between the expected and some plot twists, history, and occasional feminism. I think my favorite novellas overall were "Falling For Felicity" by Tiffany Odekirk (spunky and cute), "A Prior Engagement" by Ashtyn Newbold (cute and funny), "Love Among the Brambles" by Rosalyn Eves (sympathetic and sweet), and "All of Beauty" by Kaylee Bald This anthology was very well-done!

All in all, the support of this anthology is for a great cause! I would definitely recommend it to everyone, especially fans of the genre.

    I was unfamiliar with this group of authors, but I purchased the anthology because the proceeds of the book went to a cause I agreed with. I liked the premise of the stories: to include animals (horses and/or dogs) as an integral part of the plot, so I decided to give the collection a try. I read and enjoyed the first three stories, however was disappointed to encounter profanity, albeit “lightweight,” in each story. The anthology is listed as “sweet” which I thought meant there would be no curs I was unfamiliar with this group of authors, but I purchased the anthology because the proceeds of the book went to a cause I agreed with.

The first story is my favorite of the three.
