Funny, complex’s, full, entertaining and romantic … even spicy sometimes !!!
I loved this collection of prequels to the craziest and best regency romance I’ve read recently !!!
Some of them were more enemies to lovers, others a bit more friends to lovers and some lovers to enemies to lovers.
The most different characters involved in their own special love stories that have all the same undertone … the magic of Christmas time !!!
I’m very glad I had the chance to read them all and while some of those sequels I was already familiar with, I truly hope that I will have the chance to get to experience them.

Naughty or Nice is an anthology of seven late Georgian/Regency Christmastide romance
novellas by relatively well known authors.

They were full of holiday spirit from sweet stories to naughty cross-class ones, all were unique and
enough variety for every reader of Regency romance to find stories and series they will love.

All were well written and while most are part of ongoing series the authors gave enough information that
I didn't feel lost. And all seem to be brand new stories in their various series.

It was nice to find a couple novellas from series I am reading and a couple new to me series I think I
may look into in the near future. I would definitely recommend this book.

I received this ARC from WOLF Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you.

It is really impossible not to enjoy this wonderful, thrilling, captivating, intense, intriguing and romantic collection of holiday regency romances. Sit comfortably, prepare your snacks and get sucked into the world of dukes, earls and ladies. I am suffering from the lack of sleep because I just had to read it at once.

Seven charming love stories...a wonderful pre-Christmas read. Three of the authors were new for me, and this was probably the best way of being introduced to their writing. Definitely recommended reading!

Thanks to NetGalley and Wolf Publishing for this advanced review copy, which I voluntarily read. All thoughts are my own.

All of the untold stories I have been waiting for from my favorite my favorite authors.
Bree Wolf - Grandma Edie wasn't always a grandma, shocking I know. But once a matchmaker always a match maker. I absolutely adored her sneaking. But she could have done the same without lying so much.
Sydney Jane Bailey- I have been waiting for the parent's story. Absolutely more than I had been expecting. I really enjoyed the banter between the couple.
Tracy Sumner- The match making Duchess society disapproves of the match but not for the reasons you might think. Very steamy book but you can't quite skip the steamy scenes because they discuss important things. Wonderful story.
Fenna Edgewood- WOW what a great tale I had not heard of this series but I will definitely keep an eye out.
Charlie Lane- i didn't recognize the series til the very end! Excellent book, I adored the ending. Although for me it started a little slow. Once the ball got rolling.....what a great read.
Jennifer Monroe- i just loved Mrs Rutley's story. I really like that she included the story of the top. Its included in one of her students stories....... You'll have to read it. :)
Meredith Bond- she is a new to me author but her tale was engaging and spirited. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more!!
I recieved a free copy so that I might tell you what I honestly think. Hope you enjoyed my review. Now go enjoy the book
