4.0 out of 5 stars One Hot Scot by Suzanne Enoch I really love accents. Do you read them in a book ...October 6, 2014

One Hot Scot by Suzanne Enoch
I really love accents. Do you read them in a book and hear them in your head? I totally do! This was no acception. The only problem I had was how fast they "fell in love". I understand why they did what they did but the feelings didn't feel real. Not much of it did. Doesn't change that it was still an interesting story!

Once Upon a Christmas Scandal by Alexandra Hawkins
This one was pretty boring until the end. I found myself skipping pages just to get to something interesting. It's not often you hear of 30 year old unmarried women in Historicals. This was most likely my least fave in the set.

The Scandal Before Christmas by Elizabeth Essex
I rather liked this one. 2 people who couldn't be more different that actually talk to one another and get to know each other a bit before claiming to be in love. I liked this story a lot!!

It Happened Under the Mistletoe by Valerie Bowman
This was my fave. I loved Cerian. I have to say, this story kept this box set from being rated a 3. I fell in love with Oliver and Cerian in the closet!
