While all of us look at Valentine’s Day, February 14th, to be a special time for romance, whether it be a first love or a second chance one, every woman is longing to find that special guy, a guy she can have her long desired HEA with; most of us have forgotten that the holiday season about Christmas as being the second most popular day for romances to come into bloom. The holiday season includes the Winter Solstice, Chanukah [there’s multiple “correct” spellings] and of course Christmas; and this wonderful holiday anthology with 14 well known and loved romance authors cover all three of these holidays.
I truly love to read anthologies, especially when romance is a key element to each story, and when you add in the winter holidays, as I’ve said in the above, how can you go wrong.
This anthology offers a wide spectrum of all the romantic subgenres we love to read, from those sweet love at first sight to a hot, steamy, BDSM, how can you go wrong. Animal lovers get a chance to read how an abandoned box of kittens brings two neighbors together when the woman is at a lost at what to do with them. Sci-fi romance lovers get two chances to read their favorite genres, one where the two protagonists are on a spaceport, and the second involving two strangers up against aliens out to ravage the Earth’s resources. Can Kismet bring two individuals together, well if you love this type of story there’s something there for you as well.
As you can see there’s a strong possibility you’ll love reading at least a few of them, and at a price of 99 cents for 14 short stories, it’s a can’t lose situation. This anthology offers romance readers a chance to venture into reading a romance subgenre they’ve haven’t read before, and to possibly enjoy discovering authors they’ve never read anything from before.
So if you read only one story a day, depending on the holiday, these stories will either get you through the holiday, to the holiday itself, or get you into the spirit for the holiday for when it actually arrives
All in all, given what I’ve written in the above; I’m happy to give all the authors and the short stories they’ve contributed to this collection 5 STARS and hope you’ll enjoy reading what I’ve read.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and your families !!! 😊 😊 😊
HUGS and KISSES to everyone.
Let It Snow - Nikola Christain - This is a strong start to the anthology. I could really relate to the heroine with her discomfort at seeing family at the holidays. It's nice to see this since not everyone is on the best terms with their family. Jovie and Chris were great and the sex was well done. (4.5 stars)
Eight Secret Nights - Shoshana David - A super cute Hanukkah story featuring a Secret Santa... or is it Hanukkah Fairy? Secret admirers can often be creepy but this one was sweet. I liked the little bits of characterization as well as the various gifts. (5 stars)
A Tradition Worth Continuing - Tricia Ramey - Another really sweet story. Beth and James are just lovely. (5 Stars)
Kittens For Christmas - Caitlyn Lynch - Is there anything better than adorable kittens and a sexy cop? Nope? Good. This is another hit from Caitlyn Lynch. (5 stars)
Missing You For Christmas - Moxie Rivers - Reunion stories are another weakness of mine. This one just tugs at the heartstrings. (4 stars)
A Grease Monkey Christmas - Cailin Briste - The first sci-fi offering in the series. It was a unique story. Not necessarily my cup of tea. But not bad. (3 stars)
Santa Claus is Coming - Jennie Kew - This story was unique being entirely in the man's head. But it's still really good. Lots of great banter and characterization. (4 stars)
The Promise Of Love - Maya Bailey - This is the lone historical in the series and frankly the other anthologies had stronger historicals. While it's meticulously researched, it goes overboard on the description. I felt that a lot of this story could have been cut including all of the flashbacks. I really didn't like the hero. The heroine was very bland. Honestly, I liked the friends the best. (2.5 stars)
Underneath The Mistletoe - Ava Bari - This is another super cute story. I loved the whole cop connecting with a single mom. (4 stars)
Blizzard - Susan Frewin - The second sci-fi story. I liked this one more than the other. But it's still not my cup of tea. (3.5 stars)
All I Want for Christmas … is You - Annika Steele - I've liked Annika Steele's other works, but this one let me down. I didn't think we needed the first scene, especially since everything was repeated later. I couldn't connect with either character and I didn't believe several of the reactions. (3 stars)
Christmas is Coming - Liv Honeywell - This is the lone BDSM story and it's a great one. The BDSM is portrayed really well and is super hot. But it is very hard BDSM and that may not be for everyone. (4.5 stars)
New Beginnings - Dana Kenzi - A fun Winter Solstice story. I was happy to see another non-Christmas offering and the sex was great. (4 stars)
I Fell Through Starlight For You - Keira Fox - Talk about saving best for last. This one is probably one of my favorites in this collection. Featuring a great hero and heroine, I'll definitely be reading this one again. (5 stars)
In all, this is solid anthology and completely worth the price.
*** I received an ARC from one of the authors, opinions expressed are my own.
