I found this collection of stories to be just ok some of the stories are pleasant but many are really hard to read through and finish. It is not a book that makes you want to continue reading onto the next story.
l don't write reviews as l feel people should make their own decisions and not be influenced by others points of view, l enjoyed this collection as they are short storeys for when you just want a coffee and read
I enjoyed all of these except Rogue's Hostage, which is set during the war between the English and French and was too traumatic where the heroine is concerned. I don't really want gritty realism or unrelieved despair from a historical romance. The other stories are absolutely brilliant romances and just what you need to while away a horrid cold, wet day in front of the fire. All have good strong characters and when you have finished reading the bundle you feel as sense of disappointment as you could read even more. Would recommend this to lovers of romantic fiction.
The first book doesn't seem to be particularly romantic, especially as the subject is somewhat macabre, dealing with the exhumation of a mass grave and all that entails. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the books, and there was a good variation of backgrounds, so I didn't become bored with a load of books that were all along the same lines. However, if you are squeamish, the rest of the bundle seems to get better and better as the books progress, and well worth the money even if you skip the first one.
What a deal. These were 10 very good stories. More than just romance, they all had great story lines too. I don't know how ten books like this were chosen to be put together like this. So ever did that job wants a big pat on the back. Very good story lines and do not go over the top with sex like too many modern books do. I very highly recommend this compilation. Bring on some more.
What a diverse selection of stories. Each one was as gripping as the one before it ...but oh so different. Definitely the best selection of stories I have ever read . They were all full length and another good point was that they all finished properly, there was no feeling that this was just part of a series. Well done to the editor who chose these books, and thank you to all the writers.
Great value. Some of the stories are very good. The writing is excellent and it will keep you interested all the way through. Obviously, some stories are better than others but this collection is well worth reading.
