About the Author
New York Times bestselling author CHRISTINA DODD builds worlds filled with suspense, romance, and adventure, and creates the most distinctive characters in fiction today. Her fifty novels have been translated into twenty-five languages, featured by Doubleday Book Club, recorded on Books on Tape for the Blind, won Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart and RITA Awards, and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle.
#1 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.
Julia Quinn is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-five novels for Avon Books, and one of only sixteen authors ever to be inducted in the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.
Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.
Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

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.
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!
