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.
