Sophie's Christmas Gargoyle by Katherine Kingston- I picked this one because Ms Kingston made me really love a Christmas story. I am not overly fond of holiday stories but this twist really captured my attention and made me want more of something I would normally not read.
Sophie the heroine in this story, she helps out a woman who is battered by her lover, and is out in the rain. Sophie knows what it is like to be a battered woman so she is more than willing to help. I liked her spirit, Sophie is a strong woman I liked that about her. She is also kind for no reason and very brave.
Mark- he is rather mysterious when we first meet him, and a tad creepy with his need to help. But once we get to know him and his reasons he becomes a character I would love to know more about.
Through all this we find that love can do more than just bring people who would have never met together, it can literally change a being's whole life forever.
I wished this one had actually been a full blown story not just a short. I would also like to see this as a series the ideas and imagination in this world are really worth exploring further.
My next pick is a very different story. Take a Chance by Alexa Silver. The draw for me was the emotions and how these two come back from tragic loses. I like stories of the human spirit and how it endures. This one reminds me of that.
Lani and Hunter have quite the history. They are both survivors of a plane crash. Hunter was second in command. He is shy, reclusive even, and has quit flying to become a writer. But he has never forgotten Lani and her kiss after the crash. They both are now getting over the loss of the Captain of the plane who was hit by a drunk driver.
Lani has taken all of this and the loss of her grandmother to mean she must take life by horns and do the things she has always wanted to do.
Hunter has taken all this and basically closed himself off to everyone. But I think Lani can get under his defenses. I like the start of their love story here. Very beautifully done. I also couldn't stop smiling at the ending. It is so cute you have to read it for yourself.
Over all Naughty Chances is a great anthology with lots of great short stories. Lots of love and a little something for everyone. When you want to have love from unexpected places this is the book to pick up.
