"A Lady's Quest" - Bonnie Hamre
An woman-empowering plot but I personally don't like the period setting.
I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be humorous - I laughed when Lady Antonia questions "Would she need to change the furnishings?"

"The Spinner's Dream" - Alice Gaines
I liked this one, mainly because with the fantasy setting the reader must guess how gender dynamics operate in this make-believe world.
The drawback is that the story is too brief. The characters hint at some kind of complexity

Secrets (Volume, #1) by Alice Gaines Strong, independent women, and the clever men who capture their imaginations, and their hearts.

A Lady's Quest by Bonnie Hamre
An unusual take on the Duke-seeks-bride story. Historical romance meets modern prenuptial agreement to mutual satisfaction.
Did I skim? No
Will I re-read? Assuredly. While I'm at it, I'll browse the author's back list.

Another commuter's dream-book. Crammed in a seat between two strangers, there was nothing worse than being trapped 1+ hours each way. Regular books didn't distract me enough from being crushed. I needed something that would totally take my mind off my surroundings. I had ordered one of the Secrets books online. Then another...Then a few at a time.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, first published in 1995. Though the authors' names were unknown to me, the stories were all nice.

"The Lady's Quest" - 4 stars. Perhaps this story deserves 4.5 stars, but, although the love scenes are so hot they sizzle, the so called "quest" of the heroine seemed a bit to much. Choosing as a lover a man you don't even see just to forget about a man you're falling for but you reject because you're afraid to lose your independence after marriage? And the hero's insistence that she become his mistress without the slightest encouragement form her part (they don't even kiss) doesn't really fit w ...more

So far I've read the first two stories in this anthology, but I left it behind when I left on a trip, so will resume it after my return.
Starting it again on November 21st.
No great shakes. As I read it in tiny increments, the anthology aspect didn't irritate me as much as is often the case. I found these fairly uneven though.
