LJ Reviews 2012 October #2

Overflowing with all the trappings of a Regency Christmas, this lively octet of "wench-rich" short stories from the Word Wenches (of the popular blog) is sure to put historical fans in a holiday mood. A vicar's daughter sets out to break through a returning soldier's reserve by disguising herself as a tavern wench in Putney's "She Stoops to Wenchdom"; an unconventional miss is determined to keep the fun-loving man she adores from falling victim to a way-too-proper young lady in Jo Beverley's "Miss Brockhurst's Christmas Campaign"; a snowstorm strands a spy and the reluctant lady he's been pursuing in Joanna Bourne's "Intrigue and Mistletoe"; a case of mistaken identity has romantic results in Patricia Rice's "Wench in Wonderland"; a carriage "accident" one snowy night in Wales reconnects a young lord with the woman who refused him four years earlier in Nicola Cornick's "On a Wicked Winter's Night"; a spirited American seafaring miss and a stiff British diplomat battle storms and danger along the Cornish coast in Cara Elliott's "Weathering the Storm"; a destitute young woman is mistaken for a gentleman's intended bride in Anne Gracie's "The Mistletoe Bride"; and a Highland lass from a whisky-running family attracts the interest of the new laird and sheriff in Susan King's "A Wilder Wench." VERDICT Touching, gently funny, satisfying, and short enough to be read in one sitting, each story in this delectable anthology is a holiday treat.

PW Reviews 2012 August #4

Eight authors celebrate Christmas in Regency England in this heart-warming anthology. Putney's "She Stoops to Wenchdom" brings Lucinda Richards face to face with her childhood crush, Gregory Kenmore, who thinks himself too cowardly to deserve love. In Beverley's "Miss Brockhurst's Christmas Campaign," Penelope Brockhurst realizes too late that she loves her longtime friend Ross Skerries, and she makes a plan to seduce him. In Joanna Bourne's "Intrigue and Mistletoe," Elinor Pennington and Jack Tyler are hunting the same French spy. Jack is thrilled to find Elinor again; he may have betrayed her when he arrested her uncle, but he still loves her. All the authors match their styles so well that the individual couples begin to feel like friends and neighbors. The stories follow a similar pattern of lovers being reunited after a misunderstanding, and each second chance is a sweet gift for the reader. (Oct.)
