I was introduced to Lynnn Kurland's books not so long ago and I had a hard time trying to collect all her books specially the anthology with other authors. This book came out just in time to save me from any further frustration!! Four fantastic short stories about de Piaget and Macleod families.
"The gift of christmas past" is my most favorite. This story was previously published in The christmas cat anthology which is really hard to find. The story is about a romantic time travelling of a luckless Abigail Garrett who eventually found her true love in england medieval time. The same storyline continues in "And the groom wore tulle" (previously published in Veils of time anthology) ..only this time, Manificent Ian Macleod was travelled through time to find his love in a modern day world. "The icing on the cake" (previously published in Opposites attract anthology) and "The three wise ghosts" (previously published in Christmas Spirits anthology) are pretty much about modern day romance.. but of course, it's about the decendents of de Piaget and Macleod line.
Since these are all short stories, you will see all relationship between characters developed in, kind of, a short period of time..not like other of Kurland's books. But her writing is still full of humor and heart-warming feeling. I found myself laughed and smiled a lot while going through each page.
So if you are Lynn Kurland's fan or just looking around to find good romance novellas to read, I highly recommend you to get this book. It's worth every penny you spend.!!!

Finally!!! I can read some of the cutest stories she's ever written, without having to drop money for skanky tales by equally-talented but less discerning authors. I was torn between collecting books by one of my favorite authors and explaining to my daughters, in a few years, why they couldn't read some of Mom's books. Thank you for publishing a collection of her works in a format that prevents them from being cheapened by other material!

"The Gift of Christmas Past". In his previous eight lives, Sir Maximillian Sweetums the feline was able to see that his human wards were successfully settled. However, in his current and last life, he has failed to find the right one for independent Abigail Garret until now. All he has to do is send her back from the present in Michigan to thirteenth century England where Miles of Artane awaits his matchmaking abilities.
"The Three Wise Ghosts". The trio of ghosts was frustrated with all work and no play Gideon. They decide that American visitor Megan McKinnon would be perfect to shake up the London CEO. Only each ghost, wonders how to matchmake without killing one another.
"And the Groom Wore Tulle". In 1313 in a Scottish dungeon, Ian MacLeod drifts off to a wary sleep only to awaken in a 1999 Manhattan bridal saloon. There he meets designer Jane Fergusson, whose boss Petronia Witherspoon takes unfair advantage of her talent. That is until Ian becomes involved with Jane.
"The Icing On the Cake". In Alaska writer-chef Sam Macleod of New York City meets wilderness guide Sydney Kincaid when they both rent the same cabin at the same time. This pair is not just opposites. They are universal opposites until love finds a way to bind them together.
All four stories are different yet contain Lynn Kurland's humorous approach to loving relationships. Each tale is fun, amusing, and filled with delightful quirky characters that make LOVE CAME JUST IN TIME for the reader.

This reader's interest was grabbed right from the start with the matchmaking antics of Sir Sweetums, the 'friendly' bickering of the ghostly matchmakers and of course I love all things MacLeod! This is my first introduction to this author and immediately purchased four full length novels which I look forward to reading! Well done Ms. Kurland😊😊😊😊😊+

Lynn Kurland writes some really good hysterical (not really historical) fantasy (with time travel and ghosts) fiction. Some of her descriptions are of violent actions, nothing graphic, nothing gory, mostly punches and the like. There is some PG type of sensual not necessarily sexual contacts. All in all, great light, romantic, escapist, fiction.

I love all Lynn Kurland books. As soon as I buy the book and start to read it she's captured my attention and I find it very hard to put it aside. It's my kind of book but I would recommend to anyone. All her books are like that.

I started with Stardust of Yesterday and was hooked. I think I have all her books now and find it hard to wait until he next one comes out.

Each of these stories has a touch of the ridiculous in them. But I think that was the challenge in writing them. Can you write a story that's partly ridiculous and still make it good? I think that Lynn has.

The Three Wise Ghosts: This is where you first meet the matchmaking Boar's Head Trio, as they're named in several of Lynn's other books. Yes, it's ridiculous to think of a CEO wearing curly-toed shoes and tights... but if you're going to write a story with ghosts, why make them go by our rules? They were the ones pulling the strings here, you know.

The Ghost of Christmas Past: This is Miles de Piaget's story. The talking cat (on Christmas Eve only, of course) is the matchmaker in this one. This story is much simpler than most of Lynn's stories... you get the feeling that there should have been so much more to the story, if only there hadn't been a page limit. It's still good, though, and gives you another glimpse into one of Rhys and Gwen's kids.

And The Groom Wore Tulle: Not many people would think of starting a story with an almost starved highlander in a modern bridal shop. But that's what Lynn did, and she did it well! It might be too much for some readers (as they've written here) that Ian stuffed himself into a bridal gown... but whose to say what YOU would do if you were thrust into the future while so close to death that you likely wouldn't have all of your wits about you? Add to that the fact that most people in medieval times were superstitious, and it's believable enough to be funny.

The Icing On The Cake: This story takes a woman who is so much the out-doorsy-type that she can't cook much of anything ... and a man who is everything that she isn't in the house, and nothing that she is out of it...
