What better way to say I LOVE YOU than a gift that can be kept forever?

A Mother's Heart by Janet Eaves - When life feels like it can't get any lower, with patience, time and hard work the recovery can be amazing and blessed.

It made me think about not only the love for each other but the love of God and how he taught us to love one another during those days.

Review by Jen: I was asked by one of our past reviewers, Marissa Dobson, to review this book since she has a short story in this Valentine anthology. Since I enjoy anthologies and it's the perfect time to read a Valentine story, I accepted the request.

The anthology consists of twelve short stories, all taking place on Valentine's Day. Each of the stories was quite unique. The first story, the only historical one, could be the about the origins of the holiday. Then we jump to modern times and experience a wide range of themes. I found myself smiling and also reaching for the box of Kleenex.

Each story is about 10 pages long, so don't expect any great character development and a complicated plot. The stories are all about love and not sex. I did enjoy the stories, and thinking back, there really wasn't any one that stood out as sub-par. Once or twice I felt the tale was just too unrealistic, but with limited space to create your love story some allowances are made.

All in all, I enjoyed this quick holiday read and would recommend it. It's a great introduction to many new-to-me authors.

Reviewed at Another Look Book Reviews

The beauty of Romance books is that it can be Valentine's Day all year `round. That's why when I purchased Be Mine, Valentine way back in February, I wasn't in a hurry to read it.

What a delightful anthology full of talented writers. You can honestly read these stories anytime because there is lots o' love to go around. So don't be shy, if you love fluffy romance and to read short little stories that make you warm and fuzzy all over, you don't have to wait for Valentine's Day next year to enjoy.

Valentina: The Untold Legend by Jennifer Johnson- This first story is an old time historical and a wonderful new twist on the name Valentines. True love has no bounds and miracles can happen.

The Red Dress by Amy Leblanc - I think this was one of my favourites. It was a short story but it felt longer. Great love connection from a thoughtful man. You wanted to fall in love with the male character.

The Gift by Cat Shaffer - Oh what a wonderful story of long time love. A moving romance that demonstrates that time cannot diminish the vows you make when you marry.

The Letter by Suzanne Barrett - An awesome tale that proves that love comes from within. You fall in love with the person, not the appearance of a person.

Love Takes the Cake by Krista Ames - A great little story about forgiveness and understanding the mistakes that one makes in life. Take a look at yourself and see if you are taking anyone for granted. You may regret it if you don't start appreciating them.

The Legend of the True Love Angel by Bobbye Terry - A sweet spin on a make believe old Irish tale. Even when the circumstances for love look bleak, an angel can visit you and steer you in the right direction.

The story by Jennifer Johnson for the Be Mine Valentine book of short stories was an excellent story. This story brought me back to the ledgendary times of a heart warming story of two people and how they showed their love for each other and for other people that came into their life. It made me think about not only the love for each other but the love of God and how he taught us to love one another during those days.

Be Mine, Valentine, a table full of delicious love goodies, has a wonderful assortment of love treats--young, old, saucy, sad, and sweet. Like all sweet treats, one should not over indulge, but who can stop from having just one more? I, of course, over indulged and read the WHOLE book in one evening. Good!

Valentina, The Untold Legend by Jennifer Johnson purports that cupid with his arrows came into existence from this time. This is a special love story that is set in the distant past when Christians tread on dangerous paths as they practiced their beliefs. Priest Ternay and his wife Valentina believe in true love and risk their lives to bring happiness to others. The miracle that comes out of a man willing to give his life to save his wife's life gives the story a special depth.

The Red Dress by Amy LeBlanc has delightful humor along with an amazing, giving love. Mrs. Perkins brings a smile as she gives advice to Sara Morgan about the gift of a beautiful red dress. I loved little Charlie who came from such horrific circumstances. His Uncle Nate is a dream come true and leaves the reader with that feeling that all is well. Sara with all her self-doubts blooms with Nate's special brand of care.

The Gift by Cat Shaffer is a heartbreaker, but it also shows the steadfastness of true love. Al Mason, past eighty years old, remembers the good, happy times as he sits with his wife who has Alzheimer's. His faithfulness is rewarded with a few moments of his wife Ellie knowing who he is and giving him a kiss with her declaration of love before she slips back into her other world. His positive attitude makes the story shine.

The Letter by Suzanne Barrett is a pen pal love story. Mary Maureen Brennan knows she's not likely to ever marry.
