This is an interweaving collection of 8 Christmas stories. Seven of them are individual stories relating to couples who attend the Duchess's Charity Ball at New Years Eve, and one follows these through the book with a chapter between each 'main' story.
As always with a compendium written by different authors, in this case seven of them, the quality is a bit uneven. But overall this is of a good quality. The two Jude Knight stories are, of course, five star, as is the very delicate way Jessica Cale handles hers. Susanah Ellis, Caroline Warfield and Amy Rose Bennett all manage creditable four stars. It is perhaps a little harsh to offer only three stars for Sherry Ewing's story, but the writing was very definitely pedestrian. And what can I say about Nicole Zolback's offering. This story was very loose and repetitive, and the writing was poor. I really didn't care about the protagonists and can only award it two stars.
However it was value for money and most of the book is very readable, so I would definitely recommend it as a good read.

some stories better than others...one is unreadable, just pure silliness...dressing people in masquerade costumes, calling them by titles, pressuring them to marry will not make the period "regency"...these folks act like college students on spring break...wrong, wrong, wrong...cheap, but not worth even 99 p....

This is only the 2nd review I have ever written, I couldn't put this down there wasn't one dud in the whole collection, I would love there to be a second one which includes Lord Aldridge, this is a keeper and will definitely be really re-reading
