Cameo Courtships

Cameo Courtships: 4 Stories of Women Whose Lives Are Touched by a Legendary GiftCameo Courtships: 4 Stories of Women Whose Lives Are Touched by a Legendary Gift by Susanne Dietze
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first Barbour historical romance collection I’ve read since they’ve changed the format to just four novellas per book. While the collections have always been written around a theme, “Cameo Courtships” takes that to a whole new level. All four stories are about a single family and a special cameo that gets handed down through the generations. The authors did a bang-up job of coordinating their stories and it reads almost like one long novel. It was hard to pick a favorite, but since I always do, I’ll go with “Taming Petra” by Jennifer Uhlarik because I loved “Buckskin Pete.”

A deeply moving story set against the backdrop of a tragic moment in U.S. history. Even amid turmoil, however, love can blossom. When a young female doctor meets a Cheyenne brave, both their worlds expand. However, it’s a dangerous time to be on the plains. Blood has been spilled from both sides. Tensions are impossibly high. Some men aren’t to be trusted–even men in positions of authority. How can two people from such polar-opposite backgrounds find common ground that will allow them to help those who are hurting the most? Read this one and find out.

Of Rags and Riches

Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection: Nine Stories of Poverty and Opulence During the Gilded AgeOf Rags and Riches Romance Collection: Nine Stories of Poverty and Opulence During the Gilded Age by Michelle Griep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lovely collection! One of the better that I’ve read. Delightful heroines and dashing heroes by some authors I’ve read before and some I haven’t … but will again. The contrast of wealth versus poverty and how the two brushed up against each other during American’s Gilded Age is interesting and enlightening. These stories show life as it was, not necessarily life as we think it should have been. Well worth the time/money investment for this collection.
