The three authors Lori Wilde, Wendy Etherington, and Jillian Burns did a wonderful job creating three unique stories that all fit around one element - a Hollywood starlet’s wedding.

Each story inside By Invitation Only was amazingly sweet and hot.

Lori Wilde’s Exclusively Yours was cute and funny. I loved how the main two characters, Olivia and Nick, bickered back and forth. When they weren’t at each other’s throats, they were quite romantic.

Wendy Etherington’s Private Party had two main characte

So January will be Blaze-worthy, and I'll try to take out as many Blaze titles as I can. Second on the list this month is "By Invitation Only", a collection of three short stories of wedding crashers who find hot sex and sweet luv at an exclusive weekend resort. Like most anthologies, there were some real jems and some real doozies:

Exclusively Yours by Lori Wilde - 2 stars

I actually liked the Wilde story the least in this anthology and she was the reason I bought the book. I really didn't like either Nick or Olivia and I found pretty much everything about this novella's plot implausible, especially the ending. This was a 1 1/2 star for me. The Etherington novella was a 3 and the Burns story was a 3 1/2. Both of them were about what I expected in short novella with Secret Encounter being a slight favorite of the two.

Stories were cute, but all would have been better as full length stories.

It was a sweet collection of short stories of wedding crashers. Some manage to crash the wedding and one gets thrown out before the vows, but all find love.

Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.

She sold her first book in 1994 to Silhouette Romance but later dis
