#227 - "Wish List" by Lisa Kleypas, Lisa Cach, Claudia Dain & Lynsay Sands


Four of Romance's hottest authors present holiday tales filled with love and laughter:
I Will by Lisa Kleypas
Puddings, Pastries, and Thou by Lisa Cach
Union by Claudia Dain
All I Want by Linsay Sands   

Dear St. Nicholas,
What we'd really like for Christmas this year is:
An Irish Estate
A Family
Mountains of Sugarplums
A Quiet Elopement
Someone to close down all the London clubs - (like White's)
Marriage to a Man who is Honest, Loving, Sexy, Handsome and Titled.
But we know there aren't enough of those to go around... are there?

Four English Ladies

I Will by Lisa Kleypas:
Andrew, Lord Drake, has been cut out of his father's will because of his dissolute manner of living. To be reinstated, Andrew decides to pretend that he has changed his wicked ways. As part of his plan, he wants to convince his father that he is courting a respectable woman with the intention of marrying her. The problem is, he doesn't know any decent women, except for his friend's spinster sister, Miss Caroline Hargreaves. He blackmails the reluctant Caroline into helping him, and so the charade begins . . . 
Puddings, Pastries, and Thou by Lisa Cach:
It’s Christmas, and Vivian Ambrose has once again been passed off from one relation to the other. Orphaned long ago, and with no fortune, she has had to rely on the charity of cousins for her meat and bread, when what she dreams of is puddings and pastries, and a home, husband, and children of her own.
Richard Brent has all but given up hope that a decent, loving woman will have him. He has enough stains upon his public character that he is barely tolerated in genteel homes, and then only because he comes from a good family. When he meets Vivian, his last flickers of hope are stirred to life, for she is the one woman he has met whose hungers may tempt her to take his bait .

My rating: 3 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I enjoyed all of these stories. The best one is definitely I Will by Lisa Kleypas. I loved it. As for the others, I enjoyed them, too! They were all funny & fun & I liked the chemistry between the main characters!
