The anthology "The Night Before Christmas" is an early Christmas present to loyal fans from the contributing authors, and one that you'll want to pick up. Lori Foster, Erin McCarthy, Jill Shalvis, Kathy Love, Katherine Garbera, and Kylie Adams have all contributed fun, sexy, and romantic holiday short stories that will warm you on cold holiday nights and put you in a festive mood!!!

Lori Fosters' "White Knight Christmas" is a sweet story of two neighbors that seem to have nothing in common. Lily is young and likes the holidays. Parker is a tired detective that has seen too much and can happily do without the Christmas headaches. Lily though is about to show him what Christmas is all about, and it's not the shopping and hassle of crowds. It's about finding the sweetest gift right in front of your eyes.

Erin McCarthy entertains loyal fans with "Snowed Under." When Claire is almost buried after a snowplow passes by she thinks a quick to trip to her brother's empty apartment is just the thing in order to thaw out. She has no idea that her warmest fantasy man Derek is staying there for the holidays. Derek is her brother's friend and her secret love. Will she be able to finally unwrap the Christmas gift she's always wanted...Derek?

Jill Shalvis' "Ms. Humbug" is a nice story of two co-workers that seem to be destined to irritate each other. That is until Cami realizes that she can unbend and have a good time, and that Matt is just the man for her. He understands her and doesn't care that she is just a tad anal when it comes to organization. Will they be able to finally spark the smoldering attraction that they have both been trying to avoid?

Kathy Love brings together two soul mates in her romantic but funny story "I'll be Home For Christmas.

The Night Before Christmas is an anthology featuring six wonderful stories. There wasn't a single story in this book that I didn't enjoy. Truly a book that captures the magic of the Christmas season my single complaint has to be that the stories left me wanting more!

Lori Foster's White Knight Christmas is the first story. For months, Police Detective Parker Ross has watched his neighbor Lily Donaldson, watched and wanted her. But Lily is everything he thinks he shouldn't have. She's too sweet, too optimistic, too young and too into Christmas. But Lily's not giving up on Parker and before long he finds himself falling head over heels. With a hunky hero and a spunky, determined heroine, White Knight Christmas is another wonderful treat from Lori Foster.

Snowed Under by Erin McCarthy was my favorite tale in this anthology! When Claire Robbins is soaked by a passing snow plow she heads to her brothers place to try and dry out only to find that while her brother and his wife are out of town his best friend Justin Fairbanks is staying at his apartment. Claire has been attracted to Justin for years but never acted on it but now that she's got him trapped right where she wants him she's determined she's going to have him, if only for one night. For his part, Justin has wanted Claire for years also, but has always felt bad about it because she was in college when he first met her and the age difference made him feel just wrong. With Claire taking off her clothes in an attempt to get warm and letting him know in no uncertain terms that she wants him and has wanted him for years he doesn't stand a chance. But will they both realize that the feelings that they've had for each other for years may go beyond attraction and lust?

This was a reread for me. I am usually not a fan of anthologies... They always seem so rushed to me.

I am not going to summarize each story as I'd give most of the story away.

This book contains 6 stories by 6 different authors. Each story averages about 50 pages, give or take. I think it's very good. Each story is unique and different. And I didn't feel like any of them were rushed. I think this book is nicely written and each story is beleivable, despite it's 50 pages. All of the "couples" were either long time crushes finally coming together, or coming together again. I liked that part, it helped make the stories seem more real.

My 2 favorite stories were by Lori Foster and Erin McCarthy.

This is a quick, fun read. Be sure to check your book shelves though before buying it, it was originally released in 2005, same title, purple cover.

Ok, I admit it, I'm addicted to steamy anthologies. They're like a snickers bar for the libido -a guilty little pleasure you just can't resist. This x-mas anthology doesn't dissappoint either, six short and sexy tales of romance during the jolly season. Plently of steam in each of the stories. My favorite is the touching I'll Be Home For Christmas by Kathy Love. The hero returns to his small town for the season and bumps into his childhood sweetheart, who he dumped for a career. This one is really heart warming and packs lots of emotional punch for such a short story.

If you liked any of the bad boy anthologies, you'll like this one. I also recommend A Gift of Love anthology by Deveraux et. al for some exceptionally poiniant and romantic tales that'll have you believing in christmas miracles.

Do yourself a favor and either check this one out at the library or buy it used -so much cheaper. Anthologies tend to be quite expensive compared to regular paperbacks. They're are lots of excellent sellers here on amazon. Try it! (and no I'm not a seller :))
