Not everyone likes these BIG short Story collections but I love anthologies and when I think of Ireland I think of Fae legend and magical romance, so I was eagerly awaiting the release of the Mammoth Book of Irish romance and its twenty magical short stories. And it couldn't have arrived at a more perfect week in my time challenged life - these shorts were just the thing to allow me to sneak in a few short reads when I really 'should' have been doing something else.

While I am more of a paranormal romance reader, many of these romances had paranormal elements and I recognized a fair number of authors. I didn't sit down and read the book end to end - I jumped around and read the stories by the authors I knew first - so I am not sure if that would have changed my perceptions of the stories. My favorites were by Cat Adams, Jenna Maclaine, Nadia Williams, Sue Ellen-Wolfender and Penelope Neri, and I found a few new favorite authors I'll have to explore more.

Overall most of the stories fell between a 4 (I liked it) 3.5 (it was pretty good) and 4.5 (I really liked it) but there were a couple of 3's (just ok). There is a good mix of historical and fantasy stories, most with a touch of myth magical and love.

1. "The Blue Pebble" - Shirley Kennedy - When Evleen leaves Ireland for magicless England she vows to cast no spells, even when honor trumps love and there looks to be no happily ever after for Evleen - This was a nice little lead off for the anthology, both leads are appealing and I was rooting for a way for love to prevail over the strictures of regency England (4 stars)

2 "The Ballad of Rosamunde" - Claire Delacroix - Woven around a bard's poem, is the story of pirate Rosamunde. Padraig laments the loss of the woman he had secretly loved.

It wasn't as I thought it would be I thought it was about shifters only and the only story it had didn't explain how shifters where created by the fae?

This book was touted as having stories by the likes of Bertrice Small (one of my all time favorites). However there was not one story with her name on it. Disappointed is a mild word for how I felt. That said, I am enjoying most of the stories in this anthology.

Perfect book for the car/purse/bathroom (ha-ha). Stories are only a few pages. Perfect for reading while filling up at the gas pump, waiting for a doctor appointment, or using the bathroom! Highly recommended!

A very enjoyable anthology. Great for romance readers with limited time, especially those with a fascination with hot Celtic men.

I liked reading all the stories that it provided for everyone to read. But some of the stories were poorly edited, to the point where I wanted a red pen and fix it all.
