Christmas love

I love the two stories and how each found what they wanted though each individual didn’t realize it was the other. The narrator reminded me of a phone solicitor at first but I was able to get used to it by the end. Sweet stories.

2 short, romantic whirlwind stories

I was able to start and finish this all in an afternoon that was filled with interruptions a plenty. These are 2 separate love stories. One about the muse of a prince, who couldn’t imagine he actually liked her. The other about a woman who waited too long to get married - focusing solely on her business - until it seemed too late to find love.

They are both set around the holiday, and the couples live in a time where spontaneous decisions to wed were a common occurrence and you got what your got. Both stories were fun, endearing, and chaste, with very little innuendo, while still maintaining a romantic feel.

The narrator Claire Nicholls did a great job. Her accents were understandable from one another. Her voice is pleasant.

I was given a copy of this book by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Holiday Diversion for the Morning Commute!

I listened to the audiobook version of this duet of short stories and enjoyed each story written by Dawn Brower and Amanda Mariel and narrated by Claire Nicholls. Each story embraces a snapshot into Fortuna's Parlor, a gaming hell for women, and the one night of the year when men are allowed a glimpse behind the mystic of the parlor. It is Christmastime in Regency England and each short story is a perfect listen (or read) during a lunch hour or short commute into the office around the holiday season.

Romance is for those willing to believe in love.

This title encompasses two short stories, of Christmas magic, for two different couples, each with attachment to Fortuna's Parlor.
Each are of attraction that each person has felt, but up until this period, has failed to voice. It is wonderful and romantic, with a special touch of Christmas magic

Christmas at Fortuna's Parlor

It Christmas and what could make things nicer than to invite the men of their lives to the Parlor a party. I love how everyone banded together to get all the details just right at the last minute. The story brings out the love for family of birth and choice. A nice narration made the story easy to listen to!
