Book Review – All for Love

Today I’d like to tell you about a book that is actually three books.

All for LoveAFL51LREEva+XL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

This book includes:

The Boden Birthright by MaryConnealy

A Lady of Esteem by Kristi Ann Hunter

At Your Request by Jen Turano

This is what Amazon has to say about this collection:

Three of Christian historical fiction’s beloved authors come together in this romantic and humorous collection of novellas featuring prequels to their latest series. New and loyal fans alike will enjoy these novellas previously released only as ebooks. Connealy’s “The Boden Birthright” journeys to the Old West, where ranch hand Chance Boden’s determination to be his own boss is challenged by his employer’s pretty daughter. Hunter’s “A Lady of Esteem” follows a Regency-era young lady whose chance at love and reputation in society are threatened by a nasty rumor. Turano’s “At Your Request” tells of a young woman who is humbled at her newly lowered status in society when she is reunited with the very man whose proposal she rejected.

 

Isn’t this a beautiful book?! Even though historical romance is not my favorite genre, I’ve read and loved books by all three of these authors, and was thrilled to be able to read this book.

Mary Connealy’s book takes you back to the Boden family, whom you will have met if you read her series, the Cimarron Legacy. This story is kind of a prequel to that series. It gives the story of how Chance and Veronica meet. This story is a delightful, sweet, romantic historical novel. It includes some suspense, and is a wonderful light read.

In Kristi Ann Hunter’s book, if you’ve read her Hawthorne House series, you will meet some familiar characters. This one gives the story of Miss Amelia Stalwood. A young lady who has had a hard life. First she lost her parents, and then was neglected by her assigned guardian. A charmingly sweet romance set in England, in the Regency era.

Jen Turano gives us another tale of a lovely Wallflower (a girl who has been deemed as such by New York society) in the 1880s. If you are familiar with her Apart from the Crowd series, you will be reunited with familiar characters. Humorous and fun, this is another delightfully charming, light read.

 

My only problem with novellas is that they always are way too short for my preferred reading. I did enjoy these, because I read them at a time when I only had a few minutes and wanted something short to read. So these fit the bill perfectly!
