Sigh...it's really embarassing reading a book with a half-naked man on the cover. At least it appears to be a passing phase that died out in the early 2000s since few would realize what's going on within the covers of "50 Shades of Grey" (definitely NOT on my list). I picked this up specifically for Kinley MacGregor's "Santa Wears Spurs" but I'll give the other 3 stories a start. Hopefully there will be no eye rolling, but I'm not holding my breath.

Well, I finished all 4 stories. Mostly I'm disa

That last story by Dee Holmes was awful. The male main character was a complete asshole the entire story but yet the female lead kept making excuses for him and then at the end he finally realized he loved her and he's always loved her. My problem was that there was no remorse for his actions, he didn't apologize to her for being a complete asshole to her and how he's lived his life in general. There were also some inconsistencies. At the beginning the story one thing was mentioned to have ...more

I did not like the first story in the book by Eileen Wilks at all. The second story in the book by Sherrilyn Kenyon was pretty good I would rate it a 4. The third story in the book by Lori Foster was great I loved it I would rate it a 5. The last story in the book by Dee Holmes I did not care much for either.

Shelves: shorty, holiday
This is just a mediocre holiday collection with 4 very different stories in it, all of which are average. Some aren't overly holiday-ee others have a more seasonal theme to them.

I bet there are better holiday collections out there, but this one wasn't too bad for a quick read to get me in the mood.

Only read Santa Wears Spurs. Short cute story, but Pete's about turn was a bit unrealistic.

I loved this anthology featuring authors Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lori Foster, Dee Holmes and Eileen Wilks.

The Proper Lover by Eileen Wilks (5 stars)

She goes to James in the middle of the night for him to make her unmarriageable. Will this young woman steal the heart of this rakish man or will she be forced into a loveless marriage?

There were four novellas in this anthology and I only read two. Mainly because I don't like regency or western romance stories. I read Christmas Bonus and A Night with Emily. Both stories were fun and random. In Christmas Bonus the boss decides to seduce her employee but she knew him before she ended up being his boss. For some reason I like when the hero and the heroine want the same thing but their interpretations of the others actions is just wrong. I find that so true to life. And then in a ...more

Some of the stories were okay, some very good. I am sure there are better anthologies out there (and worse). I really enjoyed the the first story by Eileen Wilks. An author that was new to me. Set in the Regency era, this was my favorite of all four. The second by Sherrily Kenyon, Santa Wears Spurs, a western was okay but cowboy romances have never been my favorite. The third story, by Lori Foster, Christmas Bonus, was a quick contemporary romance & well written. Lori Foster always writes ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone! Sherri's an excellent author - read it!
Recommended to Fangirl by: Auto buy author
Yet another anthology I purchased solely because Sherrilyn Kenyon (MacGregor) wrote a story for the publication. As with other such books, I've not read the subsequent stories outside of Sherri's, and have rated the book solely on such story.

Overall, another sweet story! I adore how Sherri is capable of writing shorts that wrap up characters and plots in a way no other author is capable of doing! I loved Catherine and O'Connell, and reading about their second chance at love story was smile worth

Santa Wears Spurs by Kinley MacGregor-In an attempt to fix a his brother's wrongdoing, Michael and Catherine have an unexpected second chance to be together again. Set in the Old West, this was alright.

4 stars
Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster-Eric and Maggie have always liked the other but the opportunity to act was never right. Now that Maggie is Eric's boss, which one will give in? This is a sexy, fun holiday read. Foster's lighthearted humor always makes me smile!

This was a good book. It has 4 stories, from different authors, all less then 100 pages each. Even though they were all quick reads they did not leave you still wondering about anything. Some of the sex scenes were yummy hot!The stories themselves were new and refreshing not just the same ole thing.

Santa Wears Spurs by Kinley MacGregor was republished in Dark Bites Anthology with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter short stories. I read it than. It was a cute story about an outlaw returning to his wife on Christmas Eve, who is very mad at him.

I only liked Lori Fosters steamy story of two co-workers planning a Christmas party and discovering a love worth celebrating. The others were mostly negative ... Regency story was reasons they shouldn't, Old West story was a rehash of problems and heroine in former lovers story was such a doormat.

The stories in this anthology are varied in time period and enjoyable in a light way. I read it because of the Kinley MacGregor/Sherrilyn Kenyon story, which I liked, but if I knew what the reading experience would be I would not have bothered.

I really enjoyed the racy romances and the Christmas presents that the characters found in each other. The season and spirit of Christmas is a great backdrop of these blood-pumping stories. Great read!!

This was a cute collection of stories. I think they were good beach reads but very predictable plot lines.

Pretty good. I always enjoy holiday anthologies around this time of year. This one was two contemporaries, one western historical, and one Regency. The Regency story was my favorite.

There'd always been a gentle peace and welcome solitude on a wintry night in this house. A place of memories and innocent times; a place for new plans.” 0 likes
