Young, widowed, and newly out of mourning, Nicholette Everstone is an heiress yearning to be loved. Her parents had arranged for her to marry her loving late husband, but the marriage ended tragically on her wedding day. Returning to Boston after being away, she finds there's someone new to her set of friends and family she can't help but fall for.

Teach Me To Love 1899 Kari Trumbo
Izzy Lawson has taken her last abuse. When her husband dies, she rushes to Belle Fourche to stay with the only friend she has. The wall she's worked so hard to build crumbles in the arms of a man so different from her husband. Conrad Oleson can't read and it's shamed him for longer than he can remember. As Izzy reveals her painful past, he can't stay away. He'll do about anything, to get closer. Including, teach her how to love.
Façade 1942 Pepper D. Basham
Olivia Rakes has excellent observations skills for facts and details, but stumbles through matters of the heart. When her brother goes missing in German-occupied France, Livy enlists her services with a group of search-and-rescue spies, who not only thrust her toward espionage, but...romance. Agent Christopher Dawson has avoided Livy since she broke his heart. When the search for his best friend brings them together, the heart takes on a mind of its own. In a world where war changes the rules of life and love, can they work together to complete their rescue mission before the enemy catches them?
Bookishly Ever After 2018 Sarah Monzon
It all started with a bet and a book.
Emory Blake is the ultimate bibliophile. She'd take curling up with a novel over a night on the town any day. But then her best friend, Tate Woodby, accuses her of living between the pages of her paperbacks instead of the real world, and he makes a bet that will force her to experience the adventures of her fictional friends...instead of just reading about them. With her face no longer buried in books, Emory must confront the pain of the past.
My thoughts: It is always fun to find new author's. This anthology was written by seven Christian authors, five of them were new to me. It appears that all of the novella's are tied to series that the author's have written about, or are in the process of writing about. If you are looking for potential new reading material and authors, this is a perfect way to try them out.
Each of the stories are very different. You have Regency romance to a couple living in a shack, surviving through blizzards, in Canada. This is really a collection to be savored and enjoyed. Some of the stories resonated more with me than others. There were a few that if reviewed on their own would have been given 5 stars, but none of them would be less than four.
This book contains novella's. Usually I love a longer story that has time to develop characters and delve into the plot. I felt that each of the stories were a good length. I wasn't left wishing that the author had given me more. I was satisfied and felt that the stories were complete.
This book contains a non-graphic violence, humor, kissing, and Christian themes.
