Book Description

Dear Avon Books,

Where are my heroes? Whenever I'm reading a book by one of my favorite authors I find I'm falling for the wrong guy -- not the hero, but the other man -- and what I really want is for him to have his own story.

Like Jake Linley, from Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas…that doctor could sit by my bedside if I ever got sick. And Ned Blydon in Splendid by Julia Quinn...he makes me want to learn to waltz! I never thought living in a drafty castle would be much fun until Simon of Ravenswood in Master of Desire by Kinley MacGregor came along.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that these are my men -- when do they get their stories?

Sincerely,
A Romance Fan

Some books are so special that there is more than one hero to love, but only a single story is told. So if you find yourself asking, "Where is my hero?" you'll discover the answer right here in this delicious collection by New York Times bestseller Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestseller Julia Quinn and USA Today bestseller Kinley MacGregor.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Unlike some romance anthologies, this refreshing volume is more a tribute to the authors' fans than a marketing tool. That isn't to say that the book won't be a major money-making machine for Avon-it will-but that the authors have listened to their readers and here revisit their most asked-about supporting characters. In "Against the Odds," Kleypas focuses on roguish Jake Linley, who first appeared in the Regency-era Someone to Watch Over Me. Both the daring doctor and his math-minded counterpart, Lydia Craven, hold appeal, but their sudden avowal of love two days before Lydia's wedding to another man feels forced and far-fetched. The affection that springs between spunky Scotswoman Lady Kenna and Simon of Ravenswood, a knight from MacGregor's Master of Desire, in "Midsummer's Knight" rings true despite the author's occasionally overwrought prose. The best entry in this collection, however, is Quinn's bright and breezy Regency-era romance between dashing Ned Blydon (from Splendid) and down-to-earth Charlotte Thornton, his fiancee's sister. With its airy prose and sparkling wit, Quinn's "A Tale of Two Sisters" is a small gem in an anthology that, while inconsistent in quality and setting, never fails to entertain.

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.



New York Times bestselling author Kinley MacGregor lives a life of extraordinary danger...as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets, and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she can be found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than ten million copies of her books in print, in 26 countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with, too.

Writing as Kinley MacGregor and Sherrilyn Kenyon, she is the author of several series including: The Dark-Hunters, Brotherhood of the Sword, Lords of Avalon, and BAD. With an international, cult following, her books have appeared in the top three on the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller lists.



The author of twenty-three previous novels for Avon Books, Julia Quinn is a graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collaboration!!! October 29, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. These three ladies are some of my all time favorite historical romance authors and it was fun to have them all together under one cover! The stories are short and fast but sweet just the same, and it was fun to see old friends return if for only just a short time.
Lisa Kleypas' story is about Derek and Sara Craven's daughter Lydia. Lydia is going to be marrying soon and it's not going to be a love match but that's okay with Lydia. She is somewhat of a bluestocking and her mathmatical calculations show that the chances of her marrying for love are astronomically not in her favor. Besides just because her parents married for love does not mean that she is going to have the same joy. That is until she is locked in a wine celler with Dr. Jake Linley. She once had a big crush on the handsome doctor but that has changed or has it? There is no question that the good doctor brings out the worst in her, that is until they are together and have a chance to talk. Maybe she won't have a loveless marriage after all.
Kinley MacGregor's story is a new series beginning which is the "Brotherhood of the Sword". Simon is a landless knight and has fallen in love with a scottish lass but there is a problem here. Kenna is the cousin of the King of Scotland, and Simon is without title, land, or prosepects. Oh...and there is the small problem that Kenna thinks that she is writing to a different man. How can they both get what they want...a chance to love each other (that is after the mix-up is corrected)and live happily ever after? You'll just have to read the story.
Julia Quinn's story is my favorite out of the three and it's Ned Blydon's (From Splendid)turn to fall in love. Problem is he is engaged to one sister, and he is feeling things for the other.

3.0 out of 5 stars Smartly Packaged w/o Bookshelf Stamina September 24, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Where's my Hero?" is a smartly packaged gimmick that indeed enticed me to buy it. I'm forever complaining about how my favorite characters are secondary characters... and darn it all, I want to read their stories. In this compilation I get my wish. Too bad, the stories don't live up to the characters who inhabit them.
"Against the Odds" is Lisa Kleypas offering of Jake Linley. He's a favorite from "Someone to Watch Over Me." Unfortunately for me, while I know I read "Someone to Watch Over Me," I cannot remember his character. Yet this offering while a bit sappy, and contrived still entertained me despite my faulty memory. You see Lydia and Jake share a kiss at her engagement party which only enhances the ambivilience the two harbor for each other. But after an enlightening trip in the wine cellar, the two fall in love with each other quite spectacularly.
"Midsummer Knight" is Kinley MacGregor offering of Simon the Wraith. A familiar character from her book, "Master of Desire." Again I have to admit that I haven't read the previous novel so I was in no way attached to the characters of this story. Decent enough, I thought it extremely prosaic and way too stuffy to keep my attention completely glued to the story. Of course, Kinley MacGregor is well known for her gothic fare as Sherrilyn Kenyon and I think she may be having difficulty keeping her personas from influencing each other. In this "medieval" fare, Simon impersonating his friend Lord Stryder, has been writing Lady Kenna. An engagement is announced, and Lord Stryder has no idea how suddenly he has gained a fiancee.
"A Tale of Two Sisters" is Julia Quinn offering Ned Blython.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a taste October 6, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All three of these Authors are some of my favorites. When I heard they were doing an anthology together I thought what could be better. Well the answer is that all these Novellas should have been full length books. I really was left wanting more. That I beleive is a good thing. If you have never read anything by these three authors this may not be the place to start.
All three book pick up hero's from previous books. Lisa Kleypas Charachters come from "Dreaming of you" and "Then came you" Jake is also found in few others, Kinley McGregor's Simon can be found In "Master of Desire" and "Born in SIn" and Julia Quinn's Hero can be found previously in Spendid and Dancing at Midnight. SO you might feel as if you have missed something if you pick up there stories here and quite frankly you have missed something.
For those of you who have read the other books its always nice to see favorite characters again and find out what happened to those supporting characters you always liked. A good read leaving you wanting a little bit more.

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining anthology September 1, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Against the Odds" by Lisa Kleypas. Though he likes Lord Wray, he also envies him for winning Lydia because Jake Linley knows she is the prize. When a matchmaker locks the duo in a cellar, Jake displays proof that love is the axiom in a relationship, but will his mathematically minded beloved cherish his theory of the heart? From SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME, Jake remains a delight and Lydia has three siblings to go.
"Midsummer's Knight" by Kinley MacGregor. Simon of Ravenswood is in love with a highborn beauty, but knows she is above a common knight. He exchanges letters with Kenna, related to the Scottish King, but signs them as his best friend Lord Stryder. Kenna loves her letter writing Stryder. When they meet he is shocked to learn of their engagement, but soon she realizes that Simon is the author that she loves. The loyal, wonderful Simon knows he is a MASTER OF DESIRE when it comes to Kenna. Is Stryder next?
"A Tale of Two Sisters" by Julia Quinn. In three days Ned Blydon will marry Lydia Thornton though he has doubts perhaps caused by his drowning in a sea of estrogen. The latest female invader is Lydia's sister Charlotte. Ned falls in love with her and she him. Only a self acclaimed poet offers a way out, but Rupert knows not that that he tenders such clout. This is a SPLENDID tale with two delightful romances.
WHERE'S MY HERO is a gimmick, but readers will value this entertaining anthology that affirms what we originally felt when each hero first appeared: that they could carry a book.
