This Freedom Journey 1833 Misty M. Beller

Opal Martin aspires to scrub the remnants of the War Between the States from her tattered life. When a nearly drowned soldier appears and asks if he can die on her porch, she must guard against the sudden revival of her heart's hope for love. Tristan Stuart wants to escape the pain of war. He wakes up at a house that's too much like home, with a woman determined to mend him he may discover a life worth fighting for. To save the last of what Opal holds dear, will he become the man she needs or let the troubled waters carry him away?

Enchanting Nicholette 1893 Dawn Crandall
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. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices this man takes on, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears at bay?

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.

Fa├žade 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 Review: 5 Stars

I've only read three of these stories so far, but wow! I was completely blown away by the variety, the plots, the romance, and the characters, and I'm excited to finish the collection. They claim to be novellas, but they are on the longer side and didn't feel like they were. These really are timeless stories that will warm the coldest heart and give a reader a few hours of enjoyable escape.

In ENCHANTING NICHOLETTE, I was transported back to the beloved Everstone family. An undeniable and instant chemistry exploded and my heart sang at the potential for Nicholette to finally have her happily ever after. There is humor mixed with tender love in this bittersweet, heartfelt, and inspiring offering. I love the way Crandall writes and brings her characters to life and I really enjoyed coming to know Nicholette on a deeper level.

It's a known fact--I could NEVER be a spy, but I love reading about them. Olivia proves to be a natural in FACADE. The fascinating escapades and sizzling romance really captured my attention and I often wondered how in the world she would get out of the various situations she found herself in. This one is intense on so many different levels and I loved every minute of it.

BOOKISHLY EVER AFTER has a special spot in my heart because I tend to hold contemporary romances at a higher standard, wanting both an escape and something realistic at the same time, and this one totally delivered both. Emory is a bookworm (like me) and would rather curl up with a book on the weekend than go out (again, like me), but her BFF, Tate, has a plan to get her out more and in a deliciously romantic way, it backfires. Such a satisfying conclusion to this collection.

Content: each story has mild romance and mild Christian elements
