Novellas, or short novels, written for compilations are always a challenge for an author, since character and romantic development have to happen so much more quickly than in a novel.
This particular compilation is above average, with no bad stories pulling down the quality of generally average or above-average stories. All the writing was good, with appealing characters and, of course, the appeal of the Scottish personality and landscape.
"Lassie Go Home" by Connie Brockway is charming, with very charismatic characters and decent romantic development. There are some laugh-out-loud moments as well!
"Sinfully Scottish" by Patti Berg is good, as well. The erotic undertones are strong, with well-developed, charming characters. The romantic development wasn't as strong, though - a common characteristic of a novella. It was still better than most novellas, just due to atmosphere and good writing.
"The Maddening Highlander" by Debra Dier is another decent story. The writing is good, and the mystery a nice touch, but the characters seemed a little flat and stereotyped.
"Castle in the Skye" by Kathleen Givens is a nice story, with an especially good heroine and some strong supporting characters. The hero seems a bit too good to be true, but the relationship is well-developed.
All in all, this is an above-average compilation of stories with good Scottish atmosphere. While none of the stories stand out as especially good, it's consistent throughout, and an easy, enjoyable read.
