I didn't read the full post to realize this was a series of excerots, not complete stories. I've read 3 of the 4, and not willing to purchase the unread story, although I enjoyed the excerpt.

I received a free ARC eBook from Net Galley and the publisher for my honest opinions.

Did not realise it was a sampler, I thought it was an anthology . Teach me to read more scrupulously.  Frustrating to reach the end of a sample and not reach the end of the story! Won’t do that again!  So no feedback since they were only samples not actual,books.

A great way of trying out a new author youve not read before by trying some of their books in smaller pieces... Ive read some of sarahs books so knew what to expect and some of the American authors i hadnt read so this is great. 
Some festvie reading is a must at christmas time and what way than this to sit and relax with a glass of whatever you choose. 
Brilliant books.

This is a great sampler! Harlequin pops out some of the best Christmas romances, cowboy Christmas Redemption is EXCELLENT! I already read and loved that one but I was really happy to be able to sample others. This made me want to grab the Sarah Morgan one immediately.

I love the opportunity to read excerpts from new books! I am always on the lookout for a good read and appreciate the opportunity to preview new authors or catch up with my favorites.

A collection of 5 sampler books that I may or may not read full length. Thank you Harlequin & NetGalley for the advanced copy.

I have found while I truly enjoy reading these samplers, it also makes me go buy more books!  I am definitely looking forward to picking up the full version of these beautiful, heartwarming, romance stories.  
Many thanks to NetGalley, Harlequin and authors for the opportunity to read and review these excerpts.

A romantic selection by great authors to give you a flavour of the Christmas season. A few chapters of each. A festive taster to treat your reading romance tastebuds.

It's always so fun to read a sampler of current romances.  It's a great way to test out new authors and figure out if you want to read the full length stories.  

I am definitely going to read Sarah Morgan's A Wedding in December.  It was a nice start to a family story with three connected storylines.  I"m engaged with the family and the characters, and I look forward to the trip to Aspen and learning more.  I am also going to read RaeAnne Thayne's Coming Home for Christmas.  To be honest, this one has a pretty dramatic start.  So dramatic (it reminded me of reading Victoria Holt's gothic romances as a teenager- not the content, but the feel of it) that I have to see what happens to the characters we've met and how it can possibly be resolved..  The other three stories weren't for me right now, but I am sure they will fit with others.  It is the season for Christmas romances, after all, and these all deliver.

Thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for the opportunity to read an advance copy of these excerpts in exchange for an honest review.

This is a collection of five excerpts from Christmas romances. They are all well written, with believable characters. A couple of them were more emotional than I prefer, but there were a couple I’ll definitely be looking into getting the full book. A good way to try out several stories to see which ones you’d like to read.

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sampler of Holiday books by RaeAnne Thayne, Sarah Morgan, Brenda Novak, Maisey Yates, Melissa Senate. Three of the books stood out, from the excerpts - Christmas in Silver Springs by Brenda Novak, Cowboy Christmas Redemption by Maisey Yates and Coming Home for Christmas by RaeAnne Thayne.

A delightfully variant sampler collection from five prolific and popular authors of romance and women's fiction, designed to warm hearts and stimulate minds. Delectably set to release on Christmas Day (2019).

I love the opportunity to try samples of upcoming books by authors I'm familiar with (Maisey Yates,Brenda Novak) and others that are new to me. This is especially true for Christmas-themed romances. It is such a specific trope, that I appreciate the opportunity to select the ones I will connect with the most.

This was a great overview of the upcoming Harlequin holiday offerings. I enjoy Christmas novels and I'm glad to see that Harlequin provides a sampler of them so I can choose what appeals to me most.  Thank you so much for allowing me to preview it!

Cute sampler featuring holiday romance and I want to check out the Sarah Morgan book. I'm really excited to start reading Christmas romance now that it's November.
