2.0 out of 5 stars OK chicklit but... 30 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the book ok but the storyline reminded me of other stories I have read. Seemed strange at first as the book made such a big thing about the nephew sneaking into and around the house and then all of a sudden, hey presto, it's not a problem as the nephew has got the hots for the pet sitter and then has forgotton how impertant it was to search his uncle's house covertly for sommething he's spent his life looking for! Unbelievable and not for me I'm afraid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy and entertaining romantic anthology 29 Sep 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brava once again bring together three great romance authors for some festive fun, love and sex.

UNLEASHED by Donna Kauffman
Emma Lafferty has just landed her biggest job to date - pet-sitting for a multi-millionaire in his remote, palatial mansion over Christmas. What she doesn't expect is her peace to be interrupted by the billionaire's rather distracting and delicious great-nephew Trevor whose reasons for being there are definitely suspicious. And that's before the pair get trapped together in the house during a snowstorm.

An enjoyable story with two likeable characters and a romance that you can suspend belief and just believe in. While being wintry and a perfect story for a night in by the fire, it wasn't at all Christmassy and I was rather irritated to find that the 'great mystery', which was the whole reason for Trevor being there, was actually just the premise for another of Donna Kauffman's books.

FINDING MR RIGHT by Jill Shalvis
Brilliant scientist Maggie Bell is an absolute dating disaster, always managing to pick men who turn out to be Mr Wrong. Sexy contractor Jacob Wahler, despite being gorgeous and sweet, definitely seems like a Mr Wrong, but Maggie has decided that a Mr Wrong might turn out to be oh-so right.

Again this story wasn't particularly Christmassy but it had wonderful characters and was fun, sexy and romantic. Jacob is a hero to die for while Maggie was someone most people could identify with. The story of the 'mysterious potion' was funny and kept the pages turning.

One week before Christmas and Natalie Pritchard is in a complete panic. The sexy tape that she made for her ex-boyfriend is missing and she desperately needs help to get it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Holiday stories 5 Nov 2008
By Judy - Published on
Three of today's hottest romance authors warm the holiday season win To All A Good Night.

Unleashed by Donna Kauffman has pet sitter Emma Lafferty working for a billionaire CEO during the holiday season. She was told that it would just be her and the pets. Emma ends up meeting the man's great nephew Trevor Hamilton. Trevor is searching for answers about his heritage. Emma and Trevor find love in the most unlikely of places.

Jill Shalvis's Finding Mr. Right has brilliant chemist Maggie Bell fed up with always ending up with Mr. Wrong when they started out as Mr. Right. She decides to go against type and have a wicked fling with hunky contractor Jacob Wahler. Jacob Wahler is amazed that someone as smart and beautiful as Maggie would give him the time of day. What starts as a no strings affair grabs both of them by the heart strings.

HelenKay Dimon's Hand Me The Tape has Natalie Pritchard turning to attorney Spencer Donovan for help. After dumping her ex she needs help getting a risque tape back. Since Spencer is in partnership with her ex, to Natalie its logical to turn to Spencer. Spencer isn't so sure. He never really noticed his partners girlfriend before but he sure is now.

To All A Good Night has three warm and toasty stories to get every romance lover in the holiday spirit. Each story is funny and all out sexy. You can't go wrong picking up this delightful Christmas anthology.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Disappointing 5 Nov 2008
By A. J. Jones - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unleashed by Donna Kaufman was good up to a point. The characters were well written and believable. Leaving the story dangling was not something I like or appreciate. The intrigue of what Trevor will find out about his family kept me wanting to get to the end and find out the truth. Not only does the author have him drop his entire quest, she adds to the mystery in the epilogue. This does not make me want to read the next story to find out what happened, it makes me wonder if the next will be just another installment in a series. I read a lot of series and trilogies. In those even though there is a storyline to follow through to the end the authors do not build up the anticipation then stop abruptly and leave more questions than you started with. Basically it ruined the whole thing for me.

Finding Mr. Right by Jill Shalvis was the best of the three stories. The characters are believable and while I usually don't like stories that have characters that have a past, these two were never involved until now so it was quite enjoyable to see how they interact.

Can You Hand Me The Tape by HelenKay Dimon started out well and went luke warm quickly. The main characters were not suppose to like each other and that did not come across at all. Her other books and short stories have been excellent at the character animosity so I don't know what happened with these two. The character of Charlie was the best of them all as he was a jerk from beginning to end and you really did dislike him as was intended. The fact that he got what he wanted in the end was not what I had expected. While it is a nice story it fell flat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent holiday romance 4 Oct 2008
By Laurie - Published on
TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT Donna Kauffman
Emma Lafferty agrees to house sit and pet sit for an eccentric billionaire over the holidays, knowing the pay and references it would generate would be a hefty boost to her new pet sitting business. When she arrives at his country home in the middle of an ice storm, the last thing she expects to find is the gorgeous great-grandson of the CEO, and although she doesn't quite believe the story he's telling about why he's there, she finds his charm irresistible.
Trevor Hamilton knew his great-uncle was going out of the country for two weeks and was certain he could pay off whoever had been hired to pet sit so he could search the mansion for clues to a family secret - a secret that has eaten at him for several years. It immediately becomes clear that Emma isn't budging. It isn't long before Trevor is totally captivated by Emma and he finds himself questioning the importance of the supposed family secret in comparison to his desire to build a relationship with Emma.
Emma and Trevor are absolutely charming together, despite a slightly rocky start. The sparks fly immediately, although they're a little hesitant to trust each other. Trevor's questions and doubts about his place in his family is heartening, as is Emma's gentle persuasion for him to do whatever is necessary to ease his mind and allow him to find the peace he has desperately wanted for several years.
Maggie Bell is a chemistry genius, working extremely long days on what she hopes is the next medical miracle. Maggie seems to be a Mr. Wrong magnet - finding him time and time again. When she decides to just go ahead and find Mr. Wrong right off the bat, who better than her high school crush, Jacob Wheeler, a contractor who is working in her building. The trouble is, once the two start spending time together, Jacob is beginning to look more and more like Mr. Right.
Seeing Maggie for the first time since high school, Jacob is incredulous that he's never noticed how beautiful she is. When he learns that she's decided to "use" him as her Mr. Wrong, he decides to make the most of it and convince her that he wants more than a temporary fling, encouraging her to use her lab for more than test slides.
Jill Shalvis has done a great job with this reunion story. Past familiarity spares Maggie and Jacob time in the "getting to know you" stage and despite their differences in profession, they find that there's a definite attraction that both are eager to investigate and research. Add a little intrigue and danger and Maggie and Jacob's story is especially interesting.
Natalie Pritchard breaks her engagement to a sleazy, self-centered jerk only to discover that he's unknowingly in possession of a naughty tape she made for him in an effort to boost her self-confidence. She decides the only person she can go to for help is her ex's law partner, Spencer Donovan. To say that Natalie and Spencer don't see eye to eye is an understatement and it takes tremendous courage for her to even talk to him about the tape. Somewhere in the course of their meetings to discuss strategy, the two share their secrets and feelings and soon begin to see each other in a totally different light.
Spencer Donovan would be the first to admit that he had never really noticed Natalie before. As the fiancee of his law partner she was off-limits so he had no reason to check her out as a woman. Now that she's no longer taken and has requested his help, he has checked her out - and plans to continue checking her out. Because Natlie's self-esteem is nearly broken, Spence knows that a soft-touch is needed. He's counting on gentle attentions and the success of a grand gesture to prove to Natalie that she's the perfect woman for him, just the way she is.
HelenKay Dimon has written Natalie with vulnerabilities that are shared by so many women. Spencer sees these vulnerabilities immediately and rather than act on them for his own benefit, he's determined to make Natalie see how very beautiful and special she is. Talk about dreamy! It was a pleasure to see these two gradually move from verbal sparring to passionate whispering!
I give this book the highest of recommendations - everyone should have it on top of their stack of holiday reads!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of holiday fluff.... 19 Nov 2008
By It'sMe! - Published on
Unleashed by Donna Kaufman
It's instant love and attraction between Emma the Pet Sitter and Trevor the Houseburglar and before she lets him make his move she wants to know why he is skulking around the house that she had been told would be empty over the holidays. Apparently Trevor has been looking for clues about his family tree since he was a boy and when he learns that his uncle's house is going to be empty over the holidays he hopes to learn something about his history. Instead he finds the love of his life in Emma and decides he doesn't need to know anything about his past because all he cares about now is his future.

*gag* I didn't notice any chemistry between Emma and Trevor nor can I discern a reason as to why this novella was even created. Pointless love story set during Christmas. Our H/H meet and fall in love. The End.

Finding Mr. Right by Jill Shalvis
Brilliant chemist Maggie Bell has a knack for choosing the perfect guy. All her ex boyfriends were successful, reasonably attractive and very intelligent. And boring. So she hits upon the excellent idea of picking Mr. Wrong to be her Mr. Right.

Enter Jacob. The ripped and sweaty construction guy who is working in her building. Hubba Hubba. Our brilliant but clumsy heroine trips her way into Jacob's arms and into his heart. This was fun, a little slapstick-y and hot. Stick a big red bow around Jacob', Jacob and it's Merry Christmas to me!

Can You Hand Me The Tape by HelenKay Dimon
Natalie has a big problem. She's just broken up with her turd of a boyfriend but not before he unknowingly made off with his Christmas present. A homemade video. *wink wink* She can't tell him to give it back because that would just rouse his curiosity and cause him to watch it. So she turns to Spencer Donovan for help.

This was a little annoying. Nat has been mentally pounded into nothing by her emotionally abusive ex boyfriend and so she distrusts Spencer's sudden declarations of love and devotion. This entire novella is just endless rounds of "didja get the tape?" and "I'm too fat to be loved!"
