    2. Tis the season for holiday-themed stories!Christmas in the Duke's Arms is a anthology written by best selling authors Grace Burrowes, Shana Galen, Miranda Neville and Carolyn Jewel. The book is set in the English countryside during the holiday season.I loved that these stories are connected. Characters travel from one story to another providing continuity to the book. Each author features individual characters and crafts a specific story for these characters in her short story while keeping to a [...]

    3. Ben j'ai beaucoip aimé. C'est 5 étoiles parce que dans l'esprit de la saison.On a envie de bouquets de houx et de gui et de neigeLa dernière nouvelle est très funentre deux aspirants espions XD.J'ai beaucoup aimé aussi le fait que toutes les héroïnes etaientdu genre indépendantes et les héros plutôt calmes (et ce sont eux qui sont amoureux dès le début)

    4. When I picked up Christmas in The Duke's Arms, I went into it with trepidation. I expectedwellDukes. And while I don't have a problem with Dukes per se, I do have a problem with the sameness of Dukes: powerful guy, lots of wealth and responsibility, inevitably rakish, rarely seen doing any government work or estate business despite that I can only imagine those things took at least some amount of their time? I need not have worried. In fact, only one of the heroes in these novellas is a Duke. An [...]

    5. The good parts were sooo good, but the bad parts frustrated me so much moreA Knight Before Christmas: 1.5 stars My first Grace Burrowes story. The writing style is not something I'd tried before, and I liked it. It doesn't sparkle with wit like Tessa Dare or Julia Quinn, but there's something there that makes you want to keep reading. The problems in this story were the characterization. The way the hero was written made me think about a sixty-something old man.In The Duke’s Arms:3 starsI like [...]

    6. What a treat! I don't often come across romance anthologies with such a high, consistent level of quality. The stories are all connected, taking place in a village called Hopewell-on-Lyft in Nottinghamshire, England, and much of the action takes place in the local pub called "The Duke's Arms". There is also a subplot about a highwayman who calls himself the "New Sheriff of Nottingham" and who has been terrorizing the coaches that pass through Hopewell-on-Lyft.Grace Burrowes' story is about a lad [...]

    7. I bought this book primarily for the Carolyn Jewel story. I'm a real fan of hers, and her book, Scandal, years after I read it is still in my top 5 books ever. I also loved another short story she put out a while ago called Moonlight which is one of the most loveliest stories and I gave it five stars so, yes, I'm a bit of a fan. I really loved her story in this book, and even though it was a short story, it had a real depth to it he others just didn't. It also had a lovely first joining scene th [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this holiday anthology, by four wonderful authors. All the stories were great, but Grace Burrowes’ and Shana Galen’s were especially delightful. They are all set in the same location and there are interconnecting characters, so that was an added bonus.Grace Burrowes - A Knight Before ChristmasThe main characters were so likable and determined to find their happiness. Widowed Penelope wanted to finally have a real husband after marrying an older man who was more like a father [...]

    9. This was an enjoyable anthology--the bunnies in Burrowes story were adorable, as was the endless list making of Viscount Carbury in Miranda Neville's contribution--but the story that was transcendentally delicious was Carolyn Jewel's In the Duke's Arms. The description from :What's a Duke to do when he's made an awful impression on the love of his life? The Duke of Oxthorpe lost his intensely guarded heart to Miss Edith Clay when Edith’s rich cousin sought to attach the duke’s marital intere [...]

    10. This amazing Christmas Anthology contains four wonderful stories that take place in the same little town at Christmastime and I absolutely loved them all.Each of the four stories is written by a different historical romance author, two of whom are favorite authors of mine, while the other two were "new to me" authors that I now look forward to reading more from. The stories are connected by not only the town they take place in but also with secondary characters and secondary storylines, one of w [...]

    11. First let me start by saying that I loved all the novellas in this anthology. Grace Burrowes starts it off with Levi and Penelope's story and it was so cute I couldn't put it down. Carolyn Jewel's In the Duke's Arms was about Edith Clay and the Duke of Oxthorpe. Their story kept me turning the pages! Licensed to Wed by Miranda Neville was Wyatt and Robina's story. I liked watching Wyatt come to the realization that he really did love Robina. Shana Galen's story The Spy Beneath the Mistletoe wrap [...]

    12. So good! Loved every story in here. Can't recommend it highly enough for anyone looking for a nice variety of Christmas romances. There's comedy (a bunny on the loose), intrigue (spies), and so much love. Fanfreakingtastic.

    13. Here is the review for Shana Galens contribution to this anthology. I just did not have time to read the whole thing. ladycelestereadsromancesp

    14. Wow, this took me a billion years to read. I think I liked the first two. The third one felt disjoined and then the last one was just meh.

    15. “Christmas in the Duke’s Arms” - Four NovellasNovella Number One. “A Knight Before Christmas” - Grace BurrowesSir Leviticus (Levi) Sparrow is a widowed friend and financial advisor to Mrs. Penelope Carrington who was widowed nearly a year ago when her much older husband, Sixtus, passed away right before Christmas. He left her quite wealthy. One stipulation of his will is that if she agrees to marry again within a year of being widowed, she will gain even more of his holdings. At first, [...]

    16. 2.5 stars.Not a bad read, although I really only enjoyed two of the four.The Grace Burrowes story was charming and quite cute, with bunnies featuring prominently. Unusual style of writing. The hero was borderline strange. But still enjoyable.The Carolyn Jewel story was a bit frustrating and took a loooong time to get to the point, but I felt very sorry for both the MCs and rejoiced in their HEA. A very repressed duke and a very sweet heroine. The Miranda Neville story got me a bit frustrated at [...]

    17. I'm going to review each of these stories separately as there is a wide variety of quality involved.A Knight Before Christmas by Grace Burrowes - 3.5 starsI wanted to love this one more than I did. I so enjoyed Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish by the same author, which is what led me to purchase and read this book. Unfortunately, I never really connected with this story and, other than the rabbits, I didn't much care for it. In the Duke's Arms by Carolyn Jewel - 4.5 starsThis was my favorite story i [...]

    18. I love novellas. In fact, I find most full-length romances so repetitive and tedious these days that I actually PREFER novellas, which promise fewer of the same conversations repeated ad nauseum, fewer frustratingly contrived conflicts and misunderstandings, and fewer of the nearly identical, painfully explicit sex scenes. I love how novellas force authors to trim the superfluous rambling and just focus on giving us a solid, more streamlined story. All that said, I didn't love most of THESE nove [...]

    19. I don’t usually read holiday romances or stories and they are too often an excuse for overwrought sentimentality. But this is a truly wonderful collection of romantic short stories and novellas that can be enjoyed any time of the year. All four stories are strong, funny, heartfelt, and sexy.For my full review of all four stories on my historical romance & history blog: bit/1wBRqX0

    20. I really like Christmas anthologies. I especially liked the first story by Grace Burrowes, with a wealthy widow that raises rabbits and Sir Levi, her man of affairs. The second story is by Carolyn Jewel and it has a stuffy duke and an h that is a poor relation.

    21. I enjoyed that these all were connected by people and events. I also liked they were all stories of people who loved one another but hadn't figured it out or figured out how tell their beloved. All were fun stories.

    22. I expected this to be better. I don't know why, for me, but it didn't grab me.Anyhow, GB 3*** - CJ 4**** - MN 4**** - SG 3 1/2 stars.

    23. Love a DukeAll these stories were awesome. They all connect in some way. Just loved how the authors tied things together. I highly recommend if you love romance

    24. The first book was a great read. I loved the hero, heroine and a few of the other characters. The addition of rabbits was very unexpected. The plot while being a somewhat usual, had extra elements which kept the reader guessing. I just didn't want the story to end. The second book thru fourth book was good and unique. The characters were likable and you could relate to them. He plot in each book kept you guessing as they didn't follow in traditional lines. Each of these stories were based around [...]

    25. A Knight Before Christmas - Grace Burrowes - 4/5 - A cute story, rather refreshing in that it involves a widow and a widower. (view spoiler)[ Less unique is that the widow is a virgin(hide spoiler)] I rather enjoyed the characters - Penelope and Leviticus (Levi) are friends and associates (he's her man of business). In the year since her husband died, Penelope and Leviticus have fallen in love with one another, but neither has really admitted it to the other. Penelope decides she needs to get ma [...]

    26. A Knight Before Christmas - Grace Burrows3* out of fiveMeh - the reason I bought the anthology but it took me a long time to read because I couldn't summon the enthusiasm to read this, the first in the book. A virgin widow needs to find a husband before the end of the year or lose her husband's fortune. Her father has lived well beyond his means on the strength of his son-in-law's fortune and squandered his unmarried daughters' dowries. Penelope wants to persuade her husband's man of business, L [...]

    27. This is a lovely little anthology of four novellas set around a village with an Inn called The Duke's Arms. Nice play on words with this title.The Knight Before Christmas is the story of Penelope Carrington, a widow and her deceased husbands man of business, lawyer, Leviticus Sparrow. Her husband's eccentric will requires her to marry to become the beneficiary of his estate and with the anniversary of his death coming up, she has to make a decision.Sir Leviticus Sparrow is partial to the widow b [...]

    28. A sweet collection of short stories that tie into each other. I enjoyed reading it.The Duke’s Arms is an undistinguished little inn in the tiny village of Hopewell-on-Lyft.
