What impressed me was that this boxed set is five full length stories with decent endings. So none of that turning the page and realising that you have come to the end of the story at a crucial point and have to buy the next in the series, which tends to happen frequently nowadays. Each story is totally different from the others.
The first is a cowboy story with a bit of time travel. Truman, the sheriff has to protect a newcomer Jessica, from the locals who suspect she is a killer. Loved the story because there were various twists and turns and I couldn't figure out how on earth it was going to end in a happy ever after.
The second is a present day bodyguard story of Cord protecting Stacey but there is a hint at skeletons in the cupboard. A fairly straightforward and pleasant story.
The third is a mediaeval tale of a knight protecting a princess against rebels whilst she is on her journey to marry an evil prince. This was another one that I couldn't figure out how there was going to be a happy ever after. It was a wonderful adventure story and I loved it.
The fourth book was a mixture of modern day and ancient Greek gods and superbeings. Hale who is a member of this special society is assigned the task of retrieving a special golden belt that belonged to Aphrodite and is now in the hands of a mortal, namely Tracy. Also he has to protect Tracy from some evil superbeings. Another love story but with special effects.
The last story is a modern day adventure of a girl named India who has visions when she has physical contact with anyone. A very well written story that had me hooked from the first page. When the police ask her to help solve a crime, she needs protection and Jamie is the one who provides it. A bit of a thriller this one and interesting to boot.
I thought all five stories were well written and there were none of the usual homophone and printing errors. All five stories were easy reading, totally different and had the feel good factor. Each book had a certain amount of sexual content but this didn't over-ride the content of the stories.
I consider that this download was incredibly good value at just under ten pence per story.
