I realized after starting into this book that I'd read all but one story previously, and I hadn't bought that one because I thought I wouldn't care for it (and I didn't).
Here is my problem: There are a few HR authors I like so much that I look forward to new releases and a few authors I dislike so much that I avoid them. But in the middle are many authors who don't make me feel either extreme. Their names all sound alike to me and I don't remember them (don't judge me--just wait until you are older and you will see what I mean). That's how I happened to buy this anthology.
Reading all of these stories as a group helped me see a pattern. The (always) green-eyed hero, in spite of his worldly experience with women, falls in love, often at first sight, and readers travel with him through agonizing, endless lust and desire. After a brief time (sometimes as long as 4 days or closer to a week) the hero beds the heroine in great detail. Then there is more agonizing--for up to a year--until the H and h admit they love each other.
I liked "The Christmas Stranger" best. The H and h communicate and get to know each other a bit. There is character development and a sense of fun permeates the cloud of lust.
My least favorite was "Winter Wife," the story I hadn't read previously. The H and h married as directed by their parents. Both were immature and the marriage was a disaster. They separated 10 years ago, seeing each other socially on occasion and being rude and insulting when they met. They are stranded at a country inn together and in a few hours are in bed, professing undying love. Who are these people? What have they been doing for 10 years while pining for each other?
The technical aspect of writing is good in these stories. Just don't expect character or plot development.
Christmas and love stories. It doesn’t get much better than this.
We're given 6 couples that are likeable and easy to become invested in. No long drawn out courtship before the HEA, I was in the mood for just that. No time for too much sex but plenty of hot looks and sneaky touching. My personal favorite is A Pirate For Christmas, story 3. Bess and Rory were so much fun. You know a story is going to be interesting when it starts with a donkey names Daisy. I enjoyed all of the characters and their short journeys. Ms Campbell tells a terrific tale.
