    1. I grabbed this one with great expectations because it contained stories by two of my favorite authors and two other authors that I hadn t read but have heard good things about And the rare thing happened, all of my expectations were met and I discovered a new author King whose backlist I m probably going to track down.The King story Snow Rose set in the Scottish Highlands is probably my favorite I found it tender, sensual and gripping and all of the little historical details really placed me in [...]


    2. R rated, interesting romance stories I had to laugh at some of the storylines creative yet so unrealistic I suppose that s why it was written you can t find it on the planet so you have to make it up Been there, done that LOL


    3. There is nothing I like better at this time of year other than indulging in my love for reading novellas revolving around Christmas And if some of those stories have a Regency setting, so much the better Most of this collection hits the mark on every level.4 stars The Snow Rose by Susan King4 stars The Best Husband Money Can Buy by Mary Jo Putney4 stars A Light in the Window by Justine Dare2 stars Boxing Day Jill BarnettIn this type of collection, 3 out of 4 isn t bad at all


    4. 4 Christmas stories from varying time periods 1 a paranormal Susan King 1 star Set in medieval Scotland VERY contrived, illogical story Young girl asks a rival clan to help her get her castle back Her drunken bully of an uncle is holding it for her until she gets married For one thing, it s 1573 This girl is obviously beyond a marrigeable age She would have married who her uncle told her to marryend of story The clan owes her for a kindness her mother did for them years ago, but they can t help [...]


    5. Snow Rose Susan King 3 5 A very good story about Catriona McDonald, who is out living on her own and caring for her 8 young cousins She s being pressured into marrying a man she doesn t want to in order to regain her castle and she seeks out another clan the Fraser s for help They can t help her, but Kenneth Fraser is intrigued by her and wants to do whatever he can to make her life a little better And so he stops by her hut, gets snowed in and they fall in love Plenty of angst ensues, but this [...]


    6. This is an anthology featuring the stories as follows The Snow Rose by Susan King 5 stars This was an incredibly sweet story and I absolutely loved it I loved the romance between Catriona MacDonald and Kenneth Fraser who were from families that had feuded for a long time In fact Catriona s father was killed by a Fraser before she was born and Kenneth s was killed by a MacDonald Catriona s mother saved the leader of the Fraser clan while still in childbed, he gave her daughter a brooch, she named [...]


    7. I generally don t like novellas because there is not enough story character development I only read this one because someone gave it to me I m happy to say I was wrong about this one True, the tales were short, but I feel like I got a pretty good sense of the characters I can t really pick a favorite they all had their good points, but if I had to pick favorites, I would say The Best Husband Money Can Buy because I have always loved Regency romances, and I liked the fact that even though her int [...]


    8. Novellas seem to be the theme for what I read in June This book is another volume of four novellas, this time without the fantasy aspect and with of the romance All four stories were set in different historical times and places but all occurred in and around Christmas time I really enjoyed reading the book a very light, entertaining way to spend a day or several afternoons, rather The stories were justlovelyd made me feel happy and peaceful I found it in a used book store in Goldendale, WA Exce [...]


    9. 3 stars for Mary Jo Putney s and Susan King s stories Both had features I liked, but they were both trite and annoying in other respects, for example the omniscient Dowager Duchess in Mary Jo Putney s and the old superstitions in Susan King s, although the description of the old New Year s traditions in Scotland is interesting You could say that I want the cake the old traditions without the calories the old superstitions , but I guess you can t really separate the two Didn t read the other 2.


    10. A lovely compilation of stories that brings out the true meaning of love and Christmas My favorite is The Light in the Window where two strangers learn how to let go the pain of the past, and face a new future together However in The Best Husband Money Can Buy one learns how a little bit of love can change a person s life The fact that it s so funny doesn t hurt either This book is a keeper, that you ll want to visit every Christmas, again and again.


    11. A very lovely collection of holiday stories they pretty much all hit the spot for me Some themes I m especially fond of an older woman who s on the shelf, a plain sister stepping in to care for her sister s orphaned son, a plain woman who comes into an unexpected inheritance and deciding to buy herself the groom of her dreams I m keeping this collection to reread


    12. Och lassie, blah blah blah blah Healing Power of Love blah blah blah blah Miracle of Christmas blah blah blah blah, ye ken As always, MJP is worth reading But never before have so many deeply troubled souls found happiness so quickly.


    13. The Snow Rose by Susan King The Best Husband Money Can Buy by Mary Jo Putney A Light in the Window by Justine DareBoxing Day by Jill Barnett


    14. One of my favorite little novellas to return to Best Husband Money Can Buy by Mary Jo Putney I love how she starts the character off with such rich detail.



    15. I absolutely love christmas stories and this one has 4 And since I am a fan of Jill Barnett, this was an easy pick I ve not been disappointed.



    16. I m a sucker for Christmas stories and this collection didn t disappoint I would recommend this to anyone wanting a little Christmas cheer any time of the year.



    17. I usually love these Christmas anthologies, but my favorite authors disappoint in this one A Light in the Window by Justin Dare stands out in this quartet and shows the true Christmas spirit.





    18. Four historical romances set at Christmas time I enjoyed all the stories, especially the one by Mary Jo Putney.
