No, no, and no.

A Lady of Expectations was profoundly aggravating. Jack wants Sophie, Sophie wants Jack, and the only thing keeping them apart is one Big Misunderstanding after another. I loathe one Big Misunderstanding, so to be assaulted by several in the same book always leaves me feeling a bit murderous.

the first story was ok, but the second was lame, and the third I swear I've read in another compilation. so it was redundant.
All great authors and great little stories

I really liked this story. Jack kept his fortune a secret and almost lost the love he's been looking for. Well written and I love all of Stephanie Lauren's books. Lenore & Harry are the other too Lester siblings and their stories are also very good

The Stephanie Laurens story was excellent. The other two stories were by authors I hadn't read before, and unfortunately they were so short it was hard to gain much about their style of writing.
I didn't like the first and longest story because the Protagonist had no personality, except that she is nice and blond and pretty. The other two stories where better and I wish they were longer.

Love Nicola Cornick and had fun with Stephanie Laurens and Kasey Michaels too. A good read.
