Kisses, She Wrote by Katharine Ashe

Kisses, She Wrote: A Christmas Romance
Release date: December 3, 2013
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: The Prince Catchers #1.5

Christmas in town has never been so steamy... 

Handsome as sin and scandalously rakish, Cam Westfall, the Earl of Bedwyr, is every young lady's wickedest dream. Shy wallflower Princess Jacqueline of Sensaire knows this better than anyone, because her dreams are full of the breathtaking earl's kisses. And not only her dreams—her diary, too.

But when Cam discovers the maiden's not-so-maidenly diary, will her wildest Christmas wishes be fulfilled in its pages . . . or in his arms?

My Rating: 4 Roses

A sweet holiday novella, Kisses, She Wrote was a wonderful historical romance. I really enjoyed reading this lovely book.

Both of the main characters were great. Jacqueline was a likable character. She was a quiet type of woman and she wasn't much for fighting. She knew that she had a responsibility as a princess and she accepted that. But, over the course of the book, she still found ways to assert herself and, in the end, nothing was going to keep her from what she truly wanted. I thought she was a lovely character. Cam was also great. He was a rake in the beginning, no getting around it. Who else would read the diary of a maiden princess? But, once his attention was caught, he wasn't going to look anywhere else. He was determined to win his princess over and he was so sweet about it. I thought he was absolutely adorable.

The romance was sweet. Jacqueline and Cam were lovely together. And, though the spice was minimal, there was definitely chemistry between them. I did get a little frustrated that both of them got so close to losing each other because they were doing someone else's bidding. But, it wasn't a big deal. I still thought they were lovely together. And, if anything, that allowed for a super sweet reunion that I totally loved.

The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely.

Kisses, She Wrote was a wonderful historical romance novella. It was sweet and lovely and a truly great read. Lovers of romance, if you want a good holiday read, then you have to read this book.
