I'm going to give an overview of this set instead of reviewing the books individually.

I have mixed feelings about the set because the individual books were of uneven quality. Overall, some books were well edited, some not too badly and some poorly edited. Problems with the editing consisted of using the wrong word, such as writing complement instead of compliment; using a word incorrectly, as if using a thesaurus without understanding the nuances and actual meanings; some sentences that had words missing or extra words added, as if the author changed a sentence but forgot to remove words that were supposed to be deleted; and some places where spellcheck ran amok and changed words, so that the sentence didn't make sense. Based on this, there were some authors whose books I would buy and others whose books I would likely avoid.

Most of the books had anachronistic language, sensibilities and mores. Some only had a few instances, while others were riddled with them. It was particularly bad in a couple of the books, with heroines dropping the f bomb and, to paraphrase, suggesting that someone go and fornicate with himself. I am really fussy about my books set in the UK and find anachronisms to be unacceptable. I'm more forgiving of anachronisms in books set in the US, but a couple of these books really pushed the boundaries. As for the language, it doesn't bother me, not even the f bomb that gives some readers apoplexy. However, I expect it in contemporary or paranormal settings, not in historical romances. Characters in historical romances shouldn't be using a phrase about saving someone's ass; it's too modern.

Some reviewers were upset because of the explicit sex scenes, but I didn't find them to be objectionable.

I'm working my way through this set of boxed books by several of my favorite authors. The one I just finished is Daisy, Suitors of Seattle, Book Four. I thoroughly enjoyed this little book. It was funny, heartwarming and romantic. I've read the other books in the series so this story fell naturally into the family of the Sullivans. Daisy is a Mail Order Bride that heads from Seattle to Montana to marry a rancher. Eli King has worked diligently expanding his land and now feels he needs a wife to share it with, plus one that can cook and clean. There are several humorous sections in this book and I loved it.

I have enjoyed reading all of the stories in this collection. These authors have, all, included humor and emotional situations that are entertaining and thought provoking. I am an old guy who loves to remember early courting times.

I bounced around in this anthology and have only read three stories so far - all very good! I'll post reviews on the other stories as I read them. Check back.

Laying Claim, Paty Jager, Amazon Bestselling author. Jeremy Duncan heads into the
Yukon Territory by dog team in the middle of a blizzard to keep one strong-willed, business-minded beauty alive. “A wonderful plunge into the Alaskan gold mining era.”

This is Book 1 of a trilogy. Clara Bixbee travels from Seattle to the lawless, rugged Yukon with one purpose in mind..to find her brother. Since the gold rush in the territory, Jeremy Duncan felt the best way to make a living was to hire out as a guide, get people over the passes to their destinations. Jeremy wants to do right by Clara, especially when his sister and brothers-in-law expect him to do the right, honorable thing. He agrees to accompany Clara over a treachorous pass to find her brother. What ensures is a battle of wills from two strong-minded people, fraught with danger, adventure and finally love. This is a very good story set in the wilderness. The author brings the territory and the era to life for the reader. Watching the main characters fall in love amid the beauty and peril of the Yukon made for an exciting story. This would be a 5 Star read excerpt there were a few typos, missing words. Good job to the author on plot, characters, setting and an adventurous read. 4 Stars

Sleight of Heart by Jacquie Rogers - Another adventure between a spinster and a card gambler, only this story had humor throughout. This story also has a main character searching for a lost relative, his brother. Burke O’Shaughnessy promises Lexie Campbell he'll find his younger brother, the man who comprised Lexie's younger sister.

I appreciate it when author's combine forces and offer a set of books like this, and for a terrific price. It's hard to rate a collection so I averaged all the stars and came up with three. Others have summarized the stories so I'll just review why I liked or didn't like the books. Painted Montana Sky was predictable but not a bad story. It's interesting to read what people felt were handicaps back in the day. Daisy was extremely boring with nothing really happening. His Brother's Wife had the main characters fighting and arguing way too much to be believable or enjoyable.I thought it was stupid that the younger brother thought he was going to marry Grace. Sleight of Heart was funny, although pretty unrealistic, it was a cute story and one of the better ones of the set.

Laying Claim had too much of a modern feel to it and was kind of unbelievable. Clara was too headstrong and bossy at the beginning. In The Most Unsuitable Courtship, the reader must suspend reality when reading it. Sooo much happens to them in such a short time. I think it could have been a good story but it just didn't click with me. The other books didn't appeal to me or I've already read and reviewed them.
