Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Consisting of three novellas and a short story, this diverse collection of historicals focuses on marriage, sweeping from the wilds of the Colorado Rockies through the sultry antebellum South to the glitter of Regency England and the dark and misty reaches of Dartmoor. With stories written by experienced authors like Catherine Anderson, Loretta Chase, and Lisa Kleypas, this serviceable collection has something that will probably appeal to everyone. Although Kathleen Woodiwiss's "The Kiss" is the shortest and not necessarily the best, readers who remember Woodiwiss's The Flame and the Flower (1972) will enjoy revisiting Heather and Brandon and seeing what awaits Brandon's brother, Jeff.

About the Author

Lisa Kleypas is the author of nineteen historical romance novels that have been published in twelve languages. In 1985, she was named Miss Massachusetts and competed in the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City. After graduating from Wellesley College with a political science degree, she published her first novel at age twenty-one. Her books have appeared on bestseller lists such as the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and WaldenBooks. Lisa is married and has two children.



Catherine Anderson is a bestselling American romance novelist. She resides in the pristine woodlands of Oregon, is married to her high school sweetheart, and has authored more than 30 award-winning historical and contemporary romances. Throughout her career, she has made numerous bestseller lists, such as the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Ingram, Waldenbooks, and Barnes & Noble. She has received nominations for the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Awards, as well as being a RITA® Award finalist, and was given a Career Achievement Award by Romantic Times for Contemporary Romance.



Loretta Chase has worked in academe, retail, and the visual arts, as well as on the streets—as a meter maid— and in video, as a scriptwriter. She might have developed an excitingly checkered career had her spouse not nagged her into writing fiction. Her bestselling historical romances, set in the Regency and Romantic eras of the early nineteenth century, have won a number of awards, including the Romance Writers of America’s RITA®.

Truly one of the best stories I have ever read (my favorite heroine EVER).
Ryan Swanson
Things happened way too fast in these stories and they all could be expanded to make a better read.
Carole Byers
Honestly, I did not care at all for the plot, the characters or her style of writing.

The first of the four stories is by Catherine Anderson an author I wasn't familiar with until now. Honestly, I did not care at all for the plot, the characters or her style of writing. The plot is
contrived and flimsy at best ( even for a short story ).The heroine ( she was so unremarkable I can't even recall her name) is out to get revenge against the man she thinks broke her sister's heart. She ends up taking revenge on the wrong brother and they're caught in a compromising position by her father and they're forced to marry. This is basically the only interesting part to this story as the rest is extremely unimaginative and boring.
The second story The Mad Earl's Bride by Loretta Chase is the real gem of this collection. The hero is diagnosed with a deadly brain disease that will not only ultimately kill him but will also cause him to lose his sanity. Having no immediate relatives he's forced to marry and produce an heir so the title will stay in the family. He agrees to marry Gwendolyn after a memorable meeting with her. She's a total bluestocking and not a great beauty so she doesnt have any illusions as to why the marriage is taking place. She's extremely levelheaded and also ambitious she dreams of building her own hospital and that's her reason for marrying a man with a death sentence. However, destiny has other plans for her and she ends up crazy in love with her mad earl. She becomes obsessed with finding the cause of her husband's deadly ailment. Can this obsession ultimately destroy what little time these two star- crossed lovers have left?
Read and find out! You will not be dissapointed.
Lisa Kleypas short story "Promises" is also entertaining although not as intriguing and romantic as Chase's.

Her very short story was not worth the time to read it. Flimsy, contrived, and boring, without interesting characters or a well-defined setting. Perhaps those who have read whatever book these characters come from would appreciate it, but I can't imagine anyone else doing so.

Anderson's Old West story was somewhat contrived, but humorous and engaging. It made a nice change of pace for me; I rather enjoyed it. The title's a mystery.

Kleypas' story was not her best effort and featured a rather dull hero and an irritating heroine, but the tale was mildly entertaining.

The real treat in this set of short stories was Chase's tale of the mad earl. It was populated with vivid characters, realistic settings, a tightly woven plot, and emotional range. Read this book if you read it for this story alone. I'll be finding more by Loretta Chase thanks to this story.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Anthologies are curious things. With different authors you often find you're reading several entirely unrelated stories, possibly linked around a theme but with little else to enable them to sit happily together. This book is the same, with two stories set in America and two in England, most around the English Regency period (although I'm not sure of the dating of the two set in America) and all featuring a wedding but apart from that there seems little to tie them together. As an introduction to the works of these authors this is a useful book but sadly this reader only found one story worthwhile in the collection.

FANCY FREE
The first story, "Fancy Free", by Catherine Anderson surprised me by not being set in the Regency period in England, which is what I thought this book was about (although this was my mistake as it doesn't specify English Regency on the cover, it was just the featured authors that made me assume this). Instead it was set in America in some unspecified time in history (my knowledge of American history isn't enough for me to know when) and features Clint Rafferty, a cattle rancher, and his family of seven younger brothers who finds himself getting married, rather unexpectedly, and at the end of a pistol, to Rachel Constantine. So how can people settle down after a shotgun marriage when they know very little about each other and when Rachel is well aware she's not want Clint wanted? He wants someone to make a home but her cooking skills are somewhat lacking, especially as she can't see anything due to excessive short-sight and that she believes if she wears her spectacles men will be appalled by her ugliness.

I really enjoy reading anthologies. It gives me the opportunity to sample several authors at a time. This one, unfortunately, is not so good. The only reason I gave three stars is due to Chase's The Mad Earl's Bride -an excellent story which saves this anthology. The others are just blah. I've read Kleypas (she's one of my fav's) before and Promises is not her best work. The same could be said for the others. Woodiwiss The Kiss was good but ended very abrubtly.

So if you want to read a good anothology get Where's My Hero (Kleypas is excellent in this) and Scottish Brides. They are both really well written romantic historicals.
