Take a chance on two stunning stories that will charm you even as you flip the pages for more.

With This Kiss
Lady Grace Ryburn is determined to do the right thing and let her sister have Colin Barry, a young man Grace is in love with. But Colin is torn-should he take the safe path and not risk his heart or do what his pirate father did and take what he desires?

Seduced by a Pirate
Sir Griffin Barry is finally coming home to claim his wife but his wife isn’t the woman he remembers. Now Griffin has to figure out how to win her heart before she leaves him. This time the pirate Griffin used to be is determined to win Phoebe’s heart even as he seduces her body.

AS YOU WISH is a wonderful book that has two stories in it. One is like a prequel to her The Ugly Duchess and the other was an e-book told in three parts. Both stories are great reads on their own but cobbled together in this book, a pure gem of a read. Ms. James delivers two entertaining stories that will leave you eager for more. Each story is well written, has complex yet intriguing characters and a romance that you can’t help but root for. The author definitely knows her readers and how they love strong characters. Both stories have that in ample supply. The characters are loosely connected to other of Ms. James books and I found both stories to be wildly entertaining as I got lost in a time of rakes and ladies, the ton and more.

AS YOU WISH is a wonderful addition to those who prefer to read some of this author’s shorter works that were an e-book and a new story as well to explore. The one thing that I was a little put out was the speed the characters found themselves falling in love with one another. I am sure it takes more than a day to know your heart but that was the only exception I had in Seduced by a Pirate. Otherwise, the stories were quite enjoyable and kept me intrigued till the very end. The author does a good job in creating believable characters, a fast paced storyline that had a few twists I sure did not see coming and more to entertain the readers with. If you enjoy a historical romance with complex characters & a storyline that sucks you in, then you will enjoy AS YOU WISH.
