I know so many people are going to be talking about this collection, because everyone is so excited to read it, but I really wanted to talk about these stories this week! :) I know all of these works are going to be wonderful, but I am especially excited to read Dawn Crandall's next book, Enchanting Nicholette. I read and reviewed the first four books in this series, and they were simply splendid.
You can read my reviews here: The Hesitant Heiress, The Bound Heart, The Captive Imposter, and The Cautious Maiden
Let me know if you picked up this collection, and which book you are going to read first. Happy reading!
