Product Description

About the Author

Christina Dodd's novels have been translated into ten languages, won Romance Writers of America's prestigious Golden Heart® and RITA® awards, and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Dodd is a regular on the USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and New York Times bestseller lists.



New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens began writing as an escape from the dry world of professional science, a hobby that quickly became a career. Her novels set in Regency England have captivated readers around the globe, making her one of the romance world's most beloved and popular authors. Loving Rose is her fifty-fourth book. All of her previous works remain in print and readily available.



Julia Quinn started writing her first book one month after finishing college and has been tapping away at her keyboard ever since.

The New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four novels for Avon Books, she is a graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and is one of only fifteen authors ever to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.



Karen Ranney began writing when she was five. Her first published work was The Maple Leaf, read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained the overwhelming love of her life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stereotypical Scotland 20 Aug 2003
By josie82 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The problem I often find with Scottish stories is that the writers often have no knowledge of Scotland except the belief that everyone wears kilts and screams "och aye the noo" at every opportunity. Granted the mythical idea of Scotland is probably more appealing than the reality so I can understand why both authors and the readers prefer it this way. However, it shouldn't be assumed that a Scottish story is good just because of the inclusion of a kilt and the surname prefix 'mac'.
Personally I can live with a few inaccuracies for the sake of a good story however I found in this collection that there were no particularly good stories let alone great ones.
Karen Ranney came out on top with the sweet story 'Bride of Glenlyon' but Christina Dodd's 'Under the Kilt' and Stephanie Laurens' 'Rose in Bloom' were stereotypical stories that provided nothing new or exciting. Lastly, Julia Quinn's story 'Gretna Greene' was by far the worst of the lot. It was contrived, unrealistic and the characters exceedingly annoying. Luckily Julia Quinn has gone on to be a fabulous author despite this dreadful beginning!

Overall, this book wasn't completely terrible but I do feel that it didn't do justice to the authors or show off their writing talents to any great length. My recommendation would be to give this book a miss and buy one of the full-length stories by any of these authors, as they're more likely to be a satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful anthology! 10 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Anthologies are usually a mixed bag, but this is good.
Christina Dodd's "Under The Kilt" is sexy, sensuous, and funny. It works despite its short length and is a worthy story of Hadden Fairchild.
Stephanie Laurens' "Rose In Bloom" is sexy and funny, but its slow pace and stereotypical heroine hampers my enjoyment somewhat. Still, a good read.
Julia Quinn's "Gretna Greene" is a light, humourous story that works despite its sometimes too-modern language. It has me laughing out loud here and there.
Karen Ranney's "Bride of Glenlyon" is my favorite - it's poignant and lovely despite its short length. It's a lovely story of moonlight courtship that had me smiling and sighing at the thought of how wonderful love can be.
This is a wonderful book. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good summer reading 8 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Christina Dodd - Under the Kilt, Stephanie Laurens - Rose in Bloom, Julia Quinn - Gretna Greene, Karen Ranney - the Glenlyon Bride. That list is for all the people like me who want to make sure that the short stories are not previously published within another collection. C Dodd's story uses the character Hadden from Well Pleasured Lady - not bad. S Laurens story is in no way like Alcott's classic. K Ranney is an author thatt I hadn't read before, I will probably look for her other works now.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BOOK!!!!! 8 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had never read any of the four authors in this book. However, I will now! All four stories are well written. It's just too bad they could not have been longer. A must buy for all the Scotland Romance lovers.
