My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Twelve optimistic MM stories, one for every month of the year.

How do men meet? Each story is connected to a holiday or event—Epiphany, Valentine’s Day, Pi Day, Arbor Day, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, summer vacation, a rodeo, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, and Hanukkah—but may not be quite the celebration you’re expecting.

Neither may the men, and when these men meet, attraction does not always equal love—at least immediately—but chemistry finds a way.

A Dark Folklore Anthology for Save the Children

Some stories paint us sweet, told to children as they fall asleep.

Mother Earth she weaves the world with a whirl of her magic, and her kind embrace shapes us all. Father Time keeps us all, ever constant, ever moving onwards, for time never stands still.

Icy hands and a frozen touch, Jack Frost ushers in the cold snap, coating the earth with sparkly delights. If Jack brings cold, May Queen brings warmth, her delicate touch bringing forth the spring.

Follow the rainbow and maybe you’ll find, a Leprechaun with his lucky pot of gold.

The watchful eyes of Man in the Moon keeps all of the secrets of the night, shining down on us with his silvery light. The Sandman is here to soothe you to sleep, bringing all to slumber with a pinch of magic dust. Shhh, sleep now. Beware the Boogeyman lurking out of sight, waiting under your bed, to catch naughty children in the night. Be good little children, for Santa is watching, and he knows if you’ve been naughty or nice.

Tales of lore, fair music to our ears. Can you hear it? Did you know? Not every tale is sweet. The truth is darker, our stories more twisted, unlike the rhymes that children hear.

All proceeds will be donated to Save the Children.

This is a mixed MF and MM anthology that contains trigger warnings for its dark content. It is intended for a mature audience of 18+.
