To review

Kisses and scandal

Lady Philomena is the daughter of a Duke, and she is crushing on a footman, who is Irish too, I mention this cos it felt very Downton Abbey. She likes him, he likes her, but oh no he is a footman! And has secrets. Yeah, he should have come clean, I wanted to hit him over the head, not cool.

There is some romance, some danger and a happily ever after. Because she does not take no for an answer.

Counterfit scandal

Bridget was in debtor's prison, now she is out and want to see her son again. Oh and her missing lover shows up too. So there is the search for their son, and them falling in love, and some danger since he is a spy. I quite liked it.

How to brew a perfect kiss

Like with the previous novella, I can't see how these fit into the survivors. I am sure they do, but how? Hmm. Like bigger than just meeting someone.

Anyway, Raeni meets Sawyer, there is lust. She is on the run (since this is a novella it is dealt with quickly at the end, and I do wonder what happens afterwards, is she truly safe?) Short and sweet. Happy endings for everyone.

Victoria Aston narrates as always and she does it well. I always enjoy her narrations 

Kisses and Scandal: Lady Philomena is the sister of the Duke of Mayne. She’s beautiful and sought-after, but she’s made the mistake of falling in love with… the footman. James Finnegan loves his lady but has a secret that won’t only break Philomena’s heart. It just might endanger her life.

Counterfeit Scandal : Now that Bridget Lavery is free from debtor’s prison, she wants to reunite with the son she had to give up. Caleb Harris is a man with a price on his head. Before he left for the war, he and Bridget had a passionate affair. Finding her again means everything to him, but loving her might just be too perilous for either of them.

How to Brew a Perfect Kiss: Raeni Sawyer is penniless and alone in a foreign country. When she finds a job at a coffee shop on Bond Street, she hopes it's the beginning of a new life. Thomas Gaines is intrigued by his new server—until she spills coffee all over him. Despite her clumsiness, he sees her potential to be more. But will Raeni's treacherous past ruin their bright future?


  1. I'm thinking... Let it go, let it go!

  2. Like Jen, I'm getting some serious Elsa vibes from this book's cover, haha. I'm happy it was an enjoyable read for you. :)

    1. DUnno who it is supposed to be, except Elsa

  3. Good they're fun, but novellas to me all tend to be quite disjointed for me like that!

  4. You had me "it felt like Downton Abbey"

  5. I do want to read more of Galen's work. This sounds like a nice collection of novellas.

  6. What was the secret? Curiouser and curiouser.

    1. Quite a bad one....if you do not consider things

  7. I do enjoy fun novellas! Too bad you wanted to slap the first guy upside the head. Lol. :)
