One of the cool things about this site is that you can purchase previous boxes as one time purchases. I’m guessing they are leftovers, but still super cool. Click here to check that out.
I really liked this box! Of the 3 I’ve received so far the Ever After Box is my favorite. This box was chock full of stuff. It was neatly themed out. It was so much fun to open. A postcard on top let you know what all was included. It was fun to unpack all the various layers. This box would definitely make a great gift for the Romance Lover in your life, or a great monthly gift for yourself.
It came with 2 print books, and cards for 2 ebooks. The 2 ebooks were available through Instafreebie. They have an app available for Itunes and Google Play Store. I downloaded the app, though the email I received from them said I could just have the books emailed to me. My Ipad is old and doesn’t work properly, so I was having trouble getting that to happen.
The 2 ebooks were Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by Elizabeth Essex and the Duke of Vauxhall by Vanessa Kelly, Christi Caldwell, Theresa Romain, and Shana Galen. It also came with a tin of candied pineapple. Super adorable. A handkerchief with a guide on how to do handkerchief communication the Regency way. A pretty sandalwood fan. 2 bookmarks, one for each author. And finally, a wax letter sealing kit.
The 2 print books came with sealed letters from the authors. The books were Bad Luck Bride by Janna MacGregor and All or Nothing by Rose Lerner. The letters were a nice touch telling you a little bit about the author and how they feel about the book.
Four dukes. Two balls. One prizefight.
Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens will never be the same.
After England’s victory in the Battle of Waterloo, the Prince Regent arranges a series of lavish celebrations at London’s notorious Vauxhall Gardens. The royal festivities bring together the rich and the desperate, the criminal and the lordly…and allow four very different dukes to find the love of a lifetime.
A proper viscount is kidnapped by a duke of the criminal underworld, only to encounter a mysterious woman from his past. A retired prizefighter, once known as the Duke of the Ring, stakes his reputation on a scrappy young boxer for the sake of a long-lost love. A traveler who inherited a dukedom needs a tightrope dancer’s help with a fake engagement that just might turn real. And the buccaneer son of a royal duke goes hunting for a respectable, highborn wife to salvage his scandalous reputation.
Let the pleasures begin…
JUST ONE BITE…
Nessa Teague has never believed in the magic that swirls around her village like a fine Cornish mist. She’s never had need of it. Until the day Lord Harry Beck returns to Bocka Morrow and Nessa realizes there is nothing, including the blackest of magic, she won’t do to have him for her own.
AND HE COULD BE HERS.
Harry Beck has left the Royal Navy only to find himself shoaled upon the rocky coast of Cornwall, where smugglers haunt every cove and treachery fouls the waters. His best hope to find the traitor selling secrets to the French is to charm the vicar’s observant and intelligent daughter, Nessa Teague.
But in a place where loyalty runs deeper than the deep blue sea, they’ll need more than charm to uncover the secret plot that threatens their country, and shakes their faith in the power and magic of true love.

England, 1819—the hottest summer in years…
Simon Radcliffe-Gould’s career as an architect is stalled and his bank account is almost empty. Yet every week he finds himself losing money he can’t afford at Maggie da Silva’s bohemian gambling den, just so he’ll have an excuse to see the beautiful, irrepressible hostess.
Maggie thought she had her life sorted out. She has a best friend (with benefits), a successful business, and a truly spectacular wardrobe. But lately she’s been…bored. Intrigued by serious, shy Simon, she finds a way to draw him into reluctantly betting on her favors at the faro table.
A few glorious nights are all she expects. But when an old flame hires Simon to design a folly during a scandalous house party at his country estate, Simon asks Maggie to pose as his mistress so he can actually get some work done. Sure, she’d rather be his mistress, but she jumps at the chance for a well deserved, all-expenses-paid vacation. What could go wrong?
Turns out, everything: Simon has unresolved issues with his ex, it’s impossible to keep kosher, and worst of all, Maggie is in danger of losing her heart…
