My thoughts:

I reviewed Volume 1 earlier this week and loved it, so I was eager to read volume 2. I really enjoyed this collection as well.

Again, there is a connection to each story through the Academy most of these women work in.

Each romance is sweet and well-written. I don’t know if I had a favorite, I really enjoyed each story. If you love historical romance that I highly recommend this collection and the first one.

Grab your copy at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or your favorite retailer.
