WINNING A LADY’S HEART
Again, a book where the woman on the front doesn’t even come close to the one in the book, the front of the novella not this one. Alexandra was described as “too plump, with a bump on her nose, with two left feet and a clumsy clod.” Really? While Nathan was described as god-like, handsome, beautiful, etc.. There is not a thing plump about the woman on the cover and there’s no bump on her small nose. I’m sick to death of the descriptions of cover models being sooo far from the book cover it isn’t even funny!
I keep saying I’m saying I’m going to be done with Ms. Caldwell because she writes heroes and heroines so different, as if that pairing is ever going to happen. Plump or plain for her and drop-dead gorgeous for him, in every other book or two. You never know what you’re going to get.
This was a cute story in itself; with Nathan falling in love with Alexandra then doing something that made her hate him and embarrass her in front of the ton. Then her grandfather, the Duke of Danby sent for Nathan then for Alexandra, her sister Olivia and their mother to come to Danby Castle, where everything was worked out.
There was no sex or swearing.
A SEASON OF HOPE
So, this is the beautiful sister to Alexandra’s NOT so pretty one. Alexandra was plump and not attractive with a gorgeous beau and Olivia is gorgeous with a beau that has a scarred face and an eye put out and wears a patch over it. Jeez!
Marcus and Olivia were in love 5 years ago and he promised to come back to her when the war was over. When he didn’t she assumed he was dead. When she was called to the Duke of Danby’s castle she looked at it as a reprieve since her father just gave her hand to a 60-something year old Earl. What she finds is Marcus as the Duke’s steward.
This was just a lot of fluff but I enjoyed it.
No sex and no swearing.
As to the narration. I think the reason I keep listening to CC’s books is because Tim Campbell narrates them. The men are sexy, the women sound like women and he reads with terrific emotions.
Both stories are novellas and thus take very little time to listen through to the end. There's still the wrench of heartbreak and the joy of true love triumphing over odds. These stories are not part of a series so they truly stand alone. If you need some Christmas cheer anytime of year, listen to these stories.
