This was the Christmas Anthology from 1990 with three stories from early America.

1. Nora Roberts: In From The Cold: I loved this one. Its Ian MacGregor's tale and set in time just before the Revolutionary. He's shot and is found by the lovely Allanna Flynn before the holiday. Together they find love for the holiday, but because of Ian's commitment to seeing America free from the British, Allanna pushes him away. Thankfully Ian's family contrive to bring them together.

A solid, only slightly dated, collection of stories that take place around Christmas at some point in our country's past.

The first, from Nora Roberts takes place on just before the Revolutionary War and concerns a young Scottish revolutionary and the peace loving daughter of an Irish farmer. While there's clearly an attraction between the two, she cannot accept the role he's eager to play in the upcoming conflict.

In the next story, brothers on opposite sides of the Civil War agree to a truce for

I suppose because this was a Harlequin book it was not as clean as I usually read. There were 3 stories written by 3 different authors. I did not enjoy the first 2 very much but I did like the 3rd one quite well. Laura was a girl that had always done what her father wanted even now when he had been dead for 3 years. She was left the family ranch and needed someone to help her run it. When Matthew Braden came back to town after leaving years before she hoped he would stay and for good this time. ...more

Nora Robert's story was a DNF for me. Maybe if I'd been following the series I'd have enjoyed it more. Instead, I found I didn't connect with the characters.

I enjoyed Patricia Potter's story. My only complaint was that the ending was a bit abrupt.

Ruth Langan's story was also a DNF for me. The heroine let herself be ruled by her father's demands, even though he'd been dead for three years! I hate doormat heroines.

Is it bad that I liked the recipes more than the stories? Hmm. I am interested in trying them!

This one by Nora Roberts wasn't anything special. First two books of the MacGregors Family Saga. It was okay but both novels were a bit too short for me and the heroes and heroines were too fast deeply in love for my taste.

But it was an okay-read for inbetween. Mostly the second story because it was a Christmas story.

This review is for Nora Robert's In From The Cold.

I generally love series; it gives the readers a longer relationship with characters. Since this book was the second one in the series it was an obligatory read for me. I found it quite boring and lacking. It didn't even put me in the Christmas spirit.

DNF. Just couldn't get into it. Read the first and it was okay, but found I had no interest to read the the other two despite my love of Christmas stories.

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland. She began writing when a blizzard in February 1979 kept her in her hilltop home with a three and six year old for nearly a week of canceled kindergarten and dwindling chocolate supplies.

During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write a story for her own entertainment. From the first page, she knew it was wha
