A McLendon Christmas by D.L. Roan

Its been a year and a half since Gabby got her HEA with Grey, Matt and Mason.  The twins are eight and Gabby gave birth to twins Danielle and Jonah four months ago.  It's the Christmas season and Gabby feels like she is on an emotional roller coaster.  Her husbands are doing everything they can to help her. 

I love the McLendon family!  This was a great follow-up to The Heart of Falcon Ridge.  I loved the flashback where Grey is freaking out when Gabby is giving birth.

The Billionaire's Sexy Rival by Leslie North

This was a quick, enjoyable read.  I liked Poppy and felt she was the perfect foil for William.  I liked that they were forced to work together and fell in love.  Again, another great book from Leslie North.  Keep them coming!

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

Enchanted by the Highlander by Lecia Cornwall

Nope.  Did not like the book.  I could not get past the first two chapters.  The poor book ended on my virtual DNF pile.

Romancing the Scot by May McGoldrick

I liked that Hugh and Grace should have been enemies yet they fall in love.  Hugh was a hero in the Napoleonic wars.  He is still grieving the loss of his wife and son.  Grace was raised by an Irish father that fought for Napoleon.  Her mother was an exiled Scottish Jacobite. 

Grace is running from the men that just murdered her father and hides in a box in a warehouse.  She ends up sealed in the box and traveling from Antwerp to Scotland.  Hugh is taken by the beautiful Grace and does everything so she will trust him.  Grace does not know that she is in possession of a secret that will wreck havoc in the British government until she is attacked.  Can Hugh protect Grace and the love that is starting to grow?

I started this book not expecting the ending.  The characters were well written and lept off the page.  I started the book and did not want it to end.  This was a wonderful book.

The Silent Duke by Jess Michaels

Ewan Hoffstead was born mute.  His father abused him and let his younger brothers abuse him too until his uncle stepped in.  Evan is now the Duke of Donburrow and feels that he isn't worthy of the title his uncle fought for him to have.

Charlotte has loved Ewan since they were young.  As a recent widow, Charlotte has nothing to lose.  She travels to Ewan's estate to spend Christmas.  A storm keeps their friends from arriving so Charlotte takes advantage and seduces Ewan.  Ewan cannot resist her but thinks he doesn't deserve her.  When his family threatens his life and Charlotte's Ewan has to take action.

This was an amazing book.  I wanted Ewan to get his HEA when he was introduced in the first novel in this series.  I loved the characters and how the characters from the previous books are part of the story.  I love this series and can't wait for the next book!

Two Dukes are Better Than One by Lorna James

I wish this book was longer so the characters could have been given more depth.  I felt like there was a lot missing.

That said, I did enjoy reading the book and liked the interaction between Sophia and Stone and Huxley.  I liked the plot and wish there could have been more with Sophia's tarot cards.

Once Upon a Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt

I loved this Maiden Lane novella.  The characters were great.  I liked how Henry stood up to his father and got his HEA.  I can't wait to see Mary and Henry in future Maiden Lane books.
