About the Author
Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed brand new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Winter Collection. A collection unlike any other, readers will love this compilation of six sweet historical romance novellas, set in varying eras, yet all with one thing in common: Romance.
This is a delightful collection of romance stories that you would feel comfortable letting your daughters read. These authors write beautiful stories that are romantic without being naughty. I hadn't previously read anything by any of the authors except for Heidi Ashworth and I love her books. Her contribution to this collection, called It Happened Twelfth Night, is true to her Regency style and I found myself wanting it to be longer! The other authors have found a new reader as well. I think the best thing about these short story books is that you get to read and discover authors you may never have read otherwise. These are all award winning authors so the quality of writing is excellent. Highly recommend.
Audience: Adult Genre: Short story collections, Historical Romance Length: 251 pages
Rating: **** (Really liked it)
The Pros: I love historical romances and I loved that I could sit down and spend thirty minutes to an hour and complete one. I loved that I got a mix of different styles and different eras all in one book. I'm familiar and really like the work of some of the authors (Sarah and Heidi Ashworth), so it was great to read more from them! I *know* some of the other authors via Twitter and Facebook (everyone else), but had never read anything by them, so it was great to get introduced to their work. I'm definitely going to play some favorites. Of course Sarah's "The Road to Cavan Town" was one, as well as Annette's "An Unexpected Proposal" and Donna's "A Winter's Knight." I have to mention that what really grabbed me about "A Winter's Knight" was the mix of regency and otherworldly stuff. (Which of course reminded me of Sarah's latest novel, AN UNLIKELY MATCH.)
The Cons: Well, that they were all too short? Ha! Some of the endings were a little too neat and simple, but I suppose more complexity would have meant longer and not in this collection. :D
I got this years ago for free when it first came out and I have read and reread one and all of the novellas. They are such great clean reads that I recommend them to anyone! I enjoyed all the stories just as much as I did the first time I read them.
I have read most if not all the books written by this collection of authors and I'm always watching and waiting for what they come out with next.
If you are looking for sweet clean and short reads any of the timeless romance anthologies are definitely worth the time!
I'll say upfront that I am not a fan of short stories. There's just not enough time to develop that chemistry I love, and the romance always ends up feeling rushed. However, this collection was wholly enjoyable! I bought it for Donna Hatch's story (Donna, if you're reading this, could you please, please, please publish a new book soon???? I've been dying for years to read a new novel from you!) but the rest were sweet. I'm a sucker for any romance with those longing looks and little brushing touches, and these stories have plenty of that. My four stars are an average review for all the stories in total--two were five stars for me (including Donna's) but a few of the others were more like three stars.
What a fun collection of winter romantic tales, all with a historical setting. These six short romances can either be read one at a time as you find the time, or you can be like me and start at the first story and not stop until you have finished the whole collection. The stories, all written by different authors and set in different times and places, have a great blend, and fit well together in a single collection. Each romantic tale is sweet and will leave you smiling, instead uncomfortable. I look forward to the Spring collection set to be released early next year.
I really enjoy these stories. Some are long, some are short. Overall, very well written with few errors. Most characters are strong and realistic. I enjoy the stories that immerse me and I feel I am actually there, standing off to the side, observing
Travel back to Medieval England, Victorian times, and turn of the century New York. There are 6 heart-touching short stories of falling in love during the holidays. Normally I don't rate anthologies (because some of the stories are fabulous and some are usually horrid), but I'm breaking that rule today. This anthology gets 5 stars. There isn't a lemon in the whole bunch, and it was so sad that there were no more stories to begin when I turned the last page. My only disappointment is that I purchased this as an ebook and now that I love it, I'm going to have to purchase the paper one and stalk author events to get it signed!
What a great compilation of stories. Each one was a page turner that kept me putting off dinner or bedtime! So enjoyable I will no doubt read this again in a few months just to experience the characters and stories again. Lovely!
