I love these authors and the way they always deliver romantic stories you won’t soon forget. Their books fill my bookshelves for a good reason. I just finished Dawn Crandall’s Enchanting Nicholette in this collection and I’m looking forward to reading the other novellas soon.
Enchanting Nicholette was another heart-satisfying read by Dawn Crandall. This tender story pulls you into the world of these characters and you don’t want to let them go. Every moment that Nicholette and Cal shared on the page was full of that beautiful romantic tension the author writes so well. I loved every minute of it!
I can’t stop thinking about this story. I hardly know where to begin in telling you my thoughts about it. The Hidden Side is such a powerful tale of God’s grace in the lives of those who are hurting. It’s full of heartache and healing. You won’t be able to put it down.
The historical half of the story gripped me with ease. Each scene is so very well written and pulls you deep into the revolutionary spy ring right along with the heroine. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by mysterious spies and charming soldiers quoting poetry, right? 🙂 Read more ›

Nolan and Hannah’s young love meets many obstacles in this story, but the characters grow beautifully and learn life lessons never to be forgotten. Their strength and determination is tested by strangers and family members alike as they discover that their only security lies in God.
If you enjoy historical romance, with sweeping settings, family heritage, and a nice dose of conflict, this book is a great fit. The author strikes a good balance of sweetness and tension, pushing every scene forward at a good pace. Although slightly predictable at a few moments, the story remained very entertaining throughout. Read more ›
