Two of these stories were just mediocre. However, the story by Deborah Simmons is amazing, and worth picking up this book JUST for her story! Her story is already one of my all-time favorites!

The Wise Virgin by Jo Beverley- 2 stars. First time reading this author. I don’t think her writing style is to my taste. This is a medieval romance and they are talking as if they were living in present day. Joan is kidnapped by mistake by a feuding family. Edmund is the head of said family- and also the o

4 stars for Jo Beverley's charming story. 3 stars for Deborah Simmons' story, which has very good characterization but at least one glaring anachronism - a married woman or widow in medieval times never ever wore her hair unbound and head uncovered in public! (Long hair would be bound in braids during the day for purely practical reasons even if there weren't religious and social proscriptions against it being uncovered.)

I already had 2 of these stories in other collections, so it pays to check on the individual titles before buying. On the other hand they are all enjoyable, especially if like me you are a sucker for Christmas tales.

Eveett yeni yıl misafiri Kont Campion için gelmiş :D Eğlenceliydi baba de Burgh'u bu şekilde okumak :D Özellikle kitabın son cümlesine bittim "Daha fazla bebeğe hayır demem. Ancak dünya daha fazla de Burgha hazır mı?" Valla ben hazırım gelsinler seve seve okurum :D

I was in the mood for love. These 3 stories fit the bill. They were pretty much all the same plot... Only names and locales changed and they were a fast read from start to finish...not the greatest, but a nice way to pass the time.

Completely fluffy trashy typical romance fun. Three different stories of medieval women who are thrown together with an irresistible stranger around Christmas and of course, romance ensues.

Three knights and three ladies find love at Christmas. The stories were all a little predictable, but enjoyable.

The 5-star rating is for Deborah Simmons' excellent short story about the De Burgh family patriarch and his Christmas guest.
