Biografia breu
Julia Harper is a Midwestern girl, born and bred. She grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and went to college at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. There she majored in anthropology and took Shakespeare classes for kicks. She spent one brief, ghastly summer doing an archaeological survey in northern Wisconsin for the State Historical Society. During that time, she won the Tick Queen of Wisconsin title for most ticks on a person at any one time (thirty-six). Oddly, she did not contract Lyme disease. Julia is (gasp!) the contemporary romance pseudonym for award-winning historical romance writer, Elizabeth Hoyt.

Elizabeth Hoyt is a New York Times bestselling author of historical romance. She also writes deliciously fun contemporary romance under the name Julia Harper. Elizabeth lives in central Illinois with three untrained dogs, two angelic but bickering children, and one long-suffering husband.

Still cute.

Original review:
Once Upon a Christmas Eve is the first book that I've read by Elizabeth Hoyt, and I'm really impressed. It's a really sweet novella about Adam, a 35 year old rake, and Sarah, who is 27 and hates rakes. They have met before and are thrown together for a few weeks during the Christmas season.

The Frog Princess is a short story that is interspersed throughout the novella. It's a cute and funny retelling of Grimm's The Frog Prince.Once Upon a Christmas Eve is the first book that I've read by Elizabeth Hoyt, and I'm really impressed.

This novella is sweet, but I liked the first half much better than the second. The second half was fine, but it was rushed and didn't quite connect with the rest of the story.

Original review:
Hippolyta is escaping from the villain who kidnapped her, when she sees Matthew's carriage going down the road and talks him into giving her a ride. Hippolyta tells Matthew that her father is wealthy and will pay him a reward for helping her, but Matthew thinks that she is a con woman because of her appearance.

At first the characters couldn't stand each other, but over the course of their travels they get to know and begin to care for each other. It was actually pretty sweet.

Mary, an orphan turned nursemaid, was browsing in a bookstore when Henry, a nobleman, mistakes her for someone else. It turns out that Mary is a dead ringer for Johanna, a noblewoman whose twin sister was kidnapped as a baby and never found.

Henry was originally betrothed to the missing twin sister, but when she went missing the betrothal changed to Lady Johanna. He and Johanna have been friends since childhood and neither of them wants to marry the other. When he runs into Mary at a bookshop, he is very excited to get to know her.

The premise for this novella is really interesting, but it ended up falling flat. The main characters were nice, but their personalities and the romance didn't have much dimension.

Nice change of time period. Slow burn to the spice- puritanical hand-wringing a tad excessive. Interested in finding out what happens to secondaries in the next books.
