A Midsummer Night's Disgrace
Eloisa revisits the scintillating world of the Essex Sisters with a story featuring a young lady, Cecilia Bellingworth, who has decided she would rather ruin her reputation than endure further speculation about whether her children will be "silly," like her brother, Billy. After two failed seasons, Cecilia decides she will dress as she likes (in a scandalous red dress!) and flirt outrageously (with a scandalous pianist!). Fortunately, a gorgeous musician at the Duchess of Ormond's house party presents the perfect candidate for scandal…
Previously published in the Essex Sisters Official Companion Guide (e only).
Elias Hempleworth-Gray has one thing and one thing only of value—his title, Earl of Leyton. Determined to leave England and the scandal of his gambler father behind, Elias hopes to turn his fortunes around and come back a respectable man to claim the only woman for him, Miss Penelope White. But Penny has other plans for the man she has loved all her life…plans that include a masquerade, a stolen kiss and a lost shoe.
Previously published in the Fairy Tale sampler (print only).
When she was sixteen, Miss Violet Leighton spent one blissful month romping around her family estate with Rothwell Talcott…thirty days of shared kisses, culminating in a very illicit afternoon in a berry patch. As Rothwell leaves for his grand tour, he gives his word of honor that he will return for her. Four years and seven refused proposals later, Violet is about to give up and marry when he finally returns. Now the Duke of Cambridge, Rothwell wants to make her his duchess. But how can Violet trust the man who stole her virtue—and then broke her heart?

This is a collection of three short stories by Ms. James, and I'm going to post a mini review for each of them.
A Midsummer Night's Disgrace
I adored this story, and wanted to badly for it to be a full length novel. However, doing that likely would have ruined it because the length it was ended u...

A fun little "snack" for your reading pleasure!
The first and longest story, A Midsummer Night's Disgrace was also found in The Official Essex Sisters Companion Guide , but it was definitely worth the re-read! It's a sweet former enemies to lovers story, told from the POV of Cece, Josie's ( Pleas...

This will be a short and sweet review of three short and very sweet (also slightly naughty) historical romances.
All three of these stories have been published before, but in separate collections. And while they all hearken back to earlier series, all three a...

Essa é coleção de histórias pequenas da Eloisa James com o tema "Cinderela". Quando se trata de contos de fada eu dificilmente não gosto de algo, e essa coleção aqui não foi excessão. :)
Gostei especialmente da segunda, "At Midnight", que inverte o papel de Cinderela e Principe, hehe. O único prob...

This was a really sweet collection of short stories. You could definitely see how they could be turned into full length novels if EJ wanted, but the quick reunions and falling in love was really lovely.

Also a Winter Delight
Four delightful stars. Three funny and sweet shorts from a master storyteller. These are great reads to erase the doldrums. Will make you want to read more of Ms. James’s longer, complete novels.

Short stories can be tough for romances, since insta-love is so unbelievable most of the time. The 3 romance shorts included in this volume didn't avoid this entirely, though all of them hedged a little with varying degrees of familiarity between the hero and heroine. Quickly endearing the charac...

I've always loved historical romances, but I've only begun to explore Eloisa James' impressive canon in the last year. I recently read and loved Too Wilde to Wed , and it inspired me to pick up Midsummer Delights. I've read romance novellas in the past, but this is the first romantic short story...
