Carla Kelly's Christmas Collection (2000)
language
English
3.84 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: These were warm, touching and humorous stories and really capture the Christmas spirit. I think I previously read "The Three Kings" in another Christmas anthology and enjoyed it, but somehow missed the other three Carla Kelly stories, "The Christmas Ornament", "Make a Joyful Nois...
Marrying The Royal Marine (2010)

English
series

review 1: This is one of my favorite Carla Kelly books, even though it's one of her darker stories. Or perhaps I enjoy it so much because it's one of her darker stories. Ms. Kelly doesn't whitewash the horrors of war and the toll it takes on both the soldiers fighting in it and the civil...

review 1: The first book I read by Carla Kelly was The Admiral's Penniless Bride, which I absolutely loved and is one of my top favorite novels to re-read. So with that in mind I purchase several of Carla Kelly's novels. Summer Campaign a historical romance was one of them.First lets get t...

review 1: I love the first book in this series so much and was excited to read the second one. I was pretty disappointed though. There was many things about the continued story that I liked but what really bothered me was there were more sexual innuendos than I feel comfortable with for...
Marriage of Mercy (2012)
language
English

review 1: Liked the book. Must warn you it has adult/erotic content. Not much, only two scenes really, but I was under the impression that it was a "clean romance" book. Guess I should have read all the tags, hmm? I don't know if this is a different Carla Kelly than the one that does clean...

review 1: (Warning: No NOT read the sequel to this book before reading the reviews!!!) This review ONLY applies to this book...not its' sequel.)This book is now in my top 5 favorite stories list of all time. Already bought it too :) Pros: Strong plot, excellent characters I immediately go...

review 1: Well another good call from another fellow reader. Now, I do have mixed feelings about this one…so here goes…I truly did love this book from the start. The crazy and quirky way that Sir Charles and Sophia/Sally came together was awesome. It was witty and it felt real…I love “frie...

English

review 1: I started reading this book because I had heard of the Scofield Mine disaster and wanted to learn more. I found the book quite engaging. I became invested in the life of the main character and had a hard time putting the book down. It was interesting to read about life in a minin...
Marian's Christmas Wish (2011)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Marian's Christmas Wish is a fun regency romp, where you must suspend belief and not judge it with 21 century values. Marian is only 16, but wise beyond her years. Gil is a perfect foil as a tender hearted hero, with baggage. If you are reading for realism, this is not the book f...
Her Hesitant Heart (2013)

review 1: *Spoiler*I'm so prejudiced when it comes to Carla Kelly, I can hardly bear to give her books anything below a 4 star rating. I purchased this book in advance because I couldn't wait to read it. Although it isn't my favorite book of Ms. Kelly's, it is a great read.Most of the lead...

language
English
series
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This was a great read. What I love about Carla Kelly is that she writes about the time period more realistically without being "too much" and as a result the stories are interesting and compelling. Her characters are interesting and compelling as well because they're 'average' ...

English
series

review 1: This is an excellent follow up to "Marrying the Captain." Nana and Oliver appear in this story but as a backdrop to Lady Laura Taunton (Nana's half-sister) and Philemon Brittle, a Royal Navy surgeon. Lady Taunton has been widowed for a year when she works up the courage to read N...

review 1: Thanks to curly_queue, who prompted me to read this novel knowing that I had enjoyed reading Balogh!It is, indeed, a calm, beautifully understated romance between two mature adults, who talk and laugh and plan together before falling in love. In fact, at the very beginning Admira...

language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Carla Kelly is one of my favorite historical romance authors and whenever I pick up a book of hers I know that I'll have my heart strings pulled. The Admiral's Penniless Pride is a complicated book as it deals with characters with major secrets, some odd power dynamics but also a...

review 1: I stumbled upon this book in my public library's ebook section. Loved it! It is part of Carla Kelly's Channel Fleet Trilogy, and I immediately read the next two, one right after the other. For me it was a refreshing change from "the ton" of Regency romance. These stories focus...

review 1: Oliver Worthy is a Captain of a ship (and also pretty damn rich from the ~spoils of war). Eleanor "Nana" Massie is the granddaughter of an innkeeper (and also the illegitimate daughter of a Viscount). Because of said Viscount, Oliver goes looking for Nana and they fall in love! A...

review 1: In order for this to have ended up in my house someone, somewhere, must have recommended it to me, but I can’t imagine who, or why. The first third of it is absolutely abysmal; tediously dull and repellently preachy. If one were to pick this up expecting a regency romance (whic...

review 1: I just finished reading “Softly Falling” by Carla Kelly curled up on the couch under a warm blanket in front of the fireplace. It was the perfect choice for a snowy day. When I contacted Kelly and told her I was enjoying her book, she offered to send me a hot rock for my feet. Th...
