All in all, this is a mediocre anthology. Harlequin should have reprinted stronger novellas. Lori Foster is one of the best soft romantica writers of this time. I enjoyed Outrageous, even though the aforementioned novella isn't one of Foster's best efforts (this is one of her early works). If you're looking for soft romantica to read on the beach, I'd advise you to check out the Kensington Brava novels and anthologies instead. This one just isn't good enough...
Unfortunately, the sad, sorry mess of Linda Lael Miller's "Snowflakes on the Sea" (pub. 1984) might be enough to put some readers off if they take the first story in the book as an indication of the quality of the latter two. Miller's story is a disjointed story with the protagonists repeating the same patterns again and again. Miller's female lead character Mallory is a sap - I found little to sympathize or empathize with in Mallory. The story wanders around until it just seems to finally come to a conclusion just to bring things to an end, and an unsatisfying end, at that.
That said, I would recommend this book for Foster's (always a treat) and Negger's novellas, however overall I can only give this book 3 stars because of the amount of paper wasted by "Snoflakes on the Sea", the longest novella in this collection.
