Format: Paperback
From the back cover:

A season of love and giving:

"The Greatest Gift" by Stella Cameron

With Christmas approaching, a kindly nanny and an impish little boy conspire to help a gentle Cornish maid win the heart of a lonely widower.

"Falling Stars" by Loretta Chase

'Tis the season for forgiveness, as a gallant gentleman renews his acquaintance with the enchanting lady who spurned him ten years before--and rekindles Yuletide fires of love and longing.

"The Scent of Snow" by Linda Lael Miller

In America's West, a desperate woman trapped in a web of lies discovers new hope for romance at Christmastime--through an act of faith...and the steadfast devotion of a handsome farmer.

"Footsteps in the Snow" by Joan Hohl

A Christmas Eve miracle transports a sad and beautiful innkeeper two hundred years into the past--to discover the glorious ecstasy of true and timeless love in the arms of a dashing colonial spy.

And my review:

Stella Cameron's had many good elements, including the endearing child and matchmaking nanny. But I didn't feel that the threads of the story really wove together well. There just wasn't that spark to the characters that makes them live on in your mind once you finish reading. Also, at the beginning of the book, I think the author really hit a sour note with her reference to the hero's affair with a MARRIED woman. I couldn't really like the guy much after that. (Previous relationship - fine. Previous relationship where he's making his partner break her wedding vows - reprehensible.) It felt really unnecessary for the story, and it was only two sentences, so I really think that the author should have left that element out. Three stars.

Format: Paperback
I agree with previous reviewers, these are all pretty good stories. My ranking of them are:
Stella Cameron's "The Greatest Gift"--2-1/2 stars. The plot was a bit weak, characters were a bit forced, but the feelling between the hero and heroine was convincing enough to make a decent read.
Loretta Chase's "Falling Stars"--3-1/2 stars. Ms. Chase did a good job on describing the deep feelings for one another where they both chose the "honorable" way out; although the author's intention was honorable, unfortunatelly, the speed was too slow.
Linda Lael Miller's "The Scent of Snow"--4-1/2 stars (I'm picky about given 5 stars). This had all the elements: it was tender, it was sweet, and you know the bond would be very tight when they depent so heavily on one another (I know I would, any man makes me breakfast and cleans out the bath tub gets my vote).
Joan Hohl's "Footsteps in the Snow"--between 4 and 4-1/2 stars. This was a smooth and fun reading, with some time-travel, spying, and unfolding of history events ... all was very fascinating but did not quite grab me as the previous story did.

One additional note, these all have explicit sex scenes, some might enjoy it more than others.

I bought this book for the Loretta Chase story "Falling Stars", which is lovely, but all the stories are good ones, very readable. It's so rare to find an anthology with all the stories equally good...this is one to keep.
