SAVING GRACE by Lucinda Brant
When widow Helen, Lady Dysart, returns to the English border town of Carlisle for a family wedding, she decides to confront local physician Royston Meredith, the man who broke her heart. Royston has loved Helen since they were teenagers. He thought the feeling mutual until she up and married the local MP. While everyone around them hopes this reunion will see Helen and Royston sort out their differences, of more immediate concern is Royston’s youngest sister Grace, when she elopes with the steward’s son. Helen and Royston dash after her, determined to save her from scandal and an imprudent match. But in saving Grace the couple may very well be saving themselves.

FOOLS RUSH IN by Julie Daines
Richard Arden needs a wife in order to collect his inheritance. Eliza Barnes needs to escape an arranged marriage to the odious Mr. Barrington. When Richard overhears Eliza’s plight at the coaching inn, he does the most reckless thing he’s ever done—he proposes to a woman he’s never met before. What begins as an easy solution leads Richard and Eliza on a journey across the country with Mr. Barrington at their heels, complicated even more when their fake engagement leads to feelings that are very real.

A LADY OF SCANDAL by Heather B. Moore
Unfortunately, Bridget’s marriage is over in four hours due to her husband’s tragic death. Fortunately, Bridget is now free from her distasteful marriage of convenience. When her year of mourning passes, and she meets her former husband’s cousin, Bridget discovers that her difficulties are far from over. Lord Hugh Wilde blames Bridget for his cousin’s death. But when Bridget’s sister elopes to Gretna Green with a man of questionable reputation, Lord Wilde is the only one who can help, and they both have to set aside their pride to rescue the errant sister.

My Review

ROAD TO GRETNA GREEN is another sweet historical romance novella collection in this line of books with stories that each involve the road to Gretna Green (where couples went to elope just over the English border into Scotland) in some way. Each story is enjoyable, making for an overall enjoyable collection. There is plenty of humor, a little danger, and happily-ever-after in the end.

SAVING GRACE by Lucinda Brant: I thought this story was fun with the conniving relations and plans put in place to get the two love interests together. There were some aspects that weren't completely followed through on, but otherwise an entertaining read.

FOOLS RUSH IN by Julie Daines: This story was quite a ride. It started off well, but the whole journey is frought with misfortune and spontaneous decisions. I wanted Richard to be a little bit stronger of a hero or maybe exert a little more control. Some things didn't quite make sense to me, but I still enjoyed the chemistry between the characters and the ending was marvelous.

A LADY OF SCANDAL by Heather B. Moore: This was my favorite story from this set. I loved how full the characters felt and how deep their emotions were. It takes some skill as an author to portray the characters and story in such a way in a novella without the story feeling too short or incomplete. I loved the enemies-to-lovers trope and how it was used here. I loved the characters and I pretty much loved the story from beginning to end.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was another enjoyable collection in this line of books. I enjoyed all three stories, with the third being a favorite and one worth grabbing the collection in order to read.

Content: Some innuendo and violence, but clean.
Source: I received a complimentary copy through I Am A Reader, which did not require a positive review nor affect it in any way.
