This is supposed to be #5 of a series of time traveling knights. Sorry to disappoint you, but there are no knights, time travel or anything else to make it #5 in the series. This is an OK contemporary romance. I bought the whole series but this one could easily be skipped. It is not part of the storyline at all. I was very disappointed and DO NOT recommend. 2.5

This was such a cute short story! (I only read the Lynn Kurland one....will read the others eventually) I think this was the first Lynn Kurland book that was just about two, current day people. Yes, they were from the same families she normally writes about (MacLeod, in this case), but there was no time travel, no history, no knights, etc. Not even any Europe. It was set in a small town in Alaska, so I sort of thought I wasn't going to like it. But I actually really loved it! It was just about t ...more

Okay, message to Lynn Kurland: enough anthologies and if you're going to write a time travel series there should be some time travel involved in the storyline.

The Icing on the Cake by Lynn Kurland was a cute story, supposed to be #5 in her MacLeod's series, no time travel.

This book also included:

The Short, Hot Summer by Elizabeth Bevarly,
Pride and Prejudice by Emily Carmichael,
the Princess and the Adventurer by Elda Minger

All the stories were good, none involved time travel.

Not very impressed with this one. No Scotland, No Medieval lairds, No time travel... I'm just wondering how this fits in with all the other books at all...

I know that is book toke me a bit longer to finish but not really I did finished this book on The 10th but I wasn't able to update my progress.

But all in all this book was truly a delight it was truly perfect for the week of Valentine's day. I love Lynn Kurland and the rest of the great authors that was joined with this author.
I love reading the rest of the short stories that was along side Opposites Attract. They all where really great and well added.

For each start they where very different

Lynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton’s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of . . . well, trouble. She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination (poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders) was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it.
