Publisher's Description

Humorous Historical Romance Novella
Collection Offers Love and Laughs

Four top historical romance novelists team up in this new collection to offer stories of love and romance with a twist of humor. In Karen Witemeyer's "The Husband Maneuver," Marietta Hawkins decides to grab the reins when the ranch foreman she loves seems to be leaving forever. Regina Jennings offers "Her Dearly Unintended," where friends stranded by a rising river pretend to be newlyweds when a dangerous stranger arrives.

Mary Connealy's "Runaway Bride" finds a Texas ranger getting more than he expected when he rescues a young woman fleeing a dangerous arranged marriage. And Melissa Jagears' "Engaging the Competition" finds a young woman forced to assist the man she's sparred with for so long after an accident leaves him helpless. Each tale is a fun blend of history and romance that will delight readers.

    Excellent book! When I see one of the authors is Mary Connealy, I know it will be a good read. I wasn't disappointed in any of the authors. The stories were cute, funny sometimes, and had a twist or turn in them. Very enjoyable.

    The Husband Maneuver by Karen Witemeyer

    Sweet romance with the intensity of unrequited love (or so both hero and heroine think.) Marietta's dreams of a happily ever after are in dire jeopardy. She no longer has the luxury of waiting for Daniel to make the first move. With her future happiness at stake, she takes matters into her own hands with comedic -- and toe-curling -- results.

    Her Dearly Unintended by Regina Jennings

    Be prepared to be plunged straight into disaster in this fast paced romantic comedy. Love the bickering banter between this incorrigible couple. Once friends and neighbours, Katie Ellen and Josiah hit a rocky patch in their early teens and it's been gloves off ever since. No wonder it takes a natural disaster and some divine intervention to get them back on the straight and narrow. Delightfully funny.

    Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy

    Texas Ranger John Conroy is the stuff tall tale legends are made of. Just the man to come to the aid of a damsel in distress. I ducked and dived my way through this action-packed love story, dodging every bullet right along with Carrie and John. Connealy's trademark comedic timing creates some side-splitting-laugh-out-loud moments and provides relief from all the tension. Wild West perfection.

    Engaging the Competition by Melissa Jagears

    Jagears mixes things up with her sharp-shooting rancher heroine and her bespectacled scholarly hero. Childhood friends and would-be sweethearts, a breakdown in adolescent communications has left 'Charlie' and Harrison at odds right into adulthood. But then the subject of marriage comes up and the games begin! Be prepared for lots of twists and turns before this hero and heroine manage to make their way to the promise of a happily ever after.

    I received With This Ring? book as a gift from one of the four authors, and I thoroughly enjoyed each story. How wonderful to get 4 great stories in one book.

    I especially loved Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy as it included characters from two of her book seriesstories and characters I remembered fondly.

    For me, the bonus to this group of novellas is that I could sample the writing of authors I had heard of but not read before. Each story was well told and I will be looking for more books by these authors.

    So, I highly recommend the book, With This Ring? I found it to be a great read.

    I have to say beforehand that Ive never done a review for a book of novellas, therefore this is my first and I hope everyone enjoys it! A common thing I loved about these stories is that I recognized some to most of the characters from the author's previous books. However, even if you have not read those books, you still can understand the stories. The first story The Husband Maneuver by Karen Witemeyer was one of my favorites earning 5 stars from me! I think one of the reasons I loved it so much is because I remembered them from A Worthy Pursuit and there wasnt ever a conclusion to Daniel and Mariettas love story like I wanted and I finally got it. It was a very sweet read and different from most novellas. It didnt drag on and take forever but it also wasnt so fast that it caused confusion. The second story Her Dearly Unintended by Regina Jennings earned 3 stars from me and sadly was my least favorite story out of the four. At the beginning I thought it might be better than it ended up being, I enjoyed the fact that Josiah was protective of Katie Ellen and it was a cute story but at times the characters seemed a little immature and the tale ended quite abruptly for my taste. The third story Runaway Bride by Mary Connealy was another favorite of mine earning four and a half stars from me. This was also another story where I enjoyed seeing the connection between books. I enjoyed everything about it except for one thing, the characters, Big John and Carrie became very stubborn for a brief time about their feelings for one another and in a novella that isnt something I enjoy immensely. As I said, it was brief considering it is a short story but thats what in the end, lowered my rating of this one a tiny bit. Now for the fourth and final story Engaging the Competition by Melissa Jagears earned four stars from me and was also a cute story that I enjoyed. Harrison and Charlotte were both likeable characters and really there werent any specifically negative things to this one. All and all it was a good novella collection and I enjoyed them. My overall rating for this book is 4 stars and I do recommend it to anyone who love a sweet, quick, historical romance! I was provided a copy of this book by the author/publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.
