What an absolute delight this anthology is.
It’s rare to get an anthology or collection where you’re going to love all the stories, but this one just did that.
There wasn’t one I didn’t enjoy, even if some I hadn’t read the series they were linked to (like Amber Kell, Suki Fleet, or Alex Jane’s) meant I was missing a bit of additional info.
Posy Roberts’ is the only one which isn’t a complete tale, instead it acts as an intro for a series from her.
Quite a few of the authors went for wee peeks into the lives of some of their previous characters like Annabeth Albert, Felice Stevens, Lane Hayes, and Garrett Leigh.
And some wrote completely new short snippets of love which were fully wrapped up like the most perfect of Christmas presents like Annabelle Jacobs, V.L. Locey and RJ Scott.
I fell in love totally with the guys in Clare London’s offering, which was just wonderfully sweet with a delivery driver finding happiness at the end of a fire escape.
And a similar ‘delivery man falls in love with the parcel recipient’ theme was also chosen by Eli Easton for her current contemporary romance.
Joanna Chambers provides the only historical entry, a truly wonderful encounter between a maimed cavalry officer and the slightly younger son of his mother’s best friend set shortly after the final battle in the Peninsula War.
And A.E. Via gave me two lonely hearts making a perfect connection.
If you’ve not bought this collection yet, I would highly recommend it.
Not only do you get 15 beautifully written festive season romances, but every penny goes towards a most worthy cause, raising money for The Trevor Project.
Bravo to RJ Scott for organising the anthology and a massive thanks to all the authors who offered up these delightful examples of love in a multitude of ways.
