This is so not worth the $4.99 currently being charged for it. Four of the five stories are nearly intolerable, and I found myself rolling my eyes and sighing, hoping they would end quickly. It wasn't quickly enough. They were trite, corny, and badly written. Typos, misspellings, word confusion, and some physics that defied logic.

The entire anthology reads like a mishmash of hastily slapped-together stories that the authors did

This bundle is absolutely perfect.

I enjoy reading stories with an underlying holiday theme this time of year and each of the ones made available here have that and so much more. There are characters you will fall in love with, each over coming some sort of hardship and finding their happily every after and characters you will also love to hate (Unwanted Bride).

Not one of the five stories listed was a downer. Some are hot, some are chaste, but each is enjoyable separately and together. I think th

These box set for 99 cents was not bad at all. I was lucky to get it from Netgalley for free for a honest review. I adored all 4 stories. They each grabbed the reader and made you want to read till the end. You wanted to know of love was going to win out. If I had to choose a favorite form the bunch it would have to be Almost Lonely. The reason for this is an outlaw keeps his promise on coming back to visit Lottie and she is even more surprised he came. The two fall in love and the story was hea ...more

Very sweet and innocent stories. This book is made up of several (5, I think) different short stories that take place around Christmas time in the 1800's time period. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the writing, story lines or characters.... but I am so used to reading 300-400 page historical romances, that it was odd to read a love story where the characters meet, fall in love and get married, and 'the end' in a weeks worth time. I guess I prefer a more drawn out storyline where it feel ...more

LOVe the box set. I knew one author in this box set Kristen Osbourne . Love her Mail order brides , is the reason i brought the box set. But i read the other stories that is also in the set and fell in love with them too.

Old western times. Check it out
I really liked this box set. Each book had it's own merits. I loved each and every one of them. I wasn't sure what I'd be getting as they were free at the time, but I am so glad that I took a chance. They were entertaining, sweet and believable. ...more

Enjoyed the stories about finding love in unlikely places. All of the stories were wonderful and I am looking forward to reading more from each of the authors.
The stories all seemed to have the same general theme, but with them being short stories, they did not have to be read in one sitting.

I enjoined the stories in the box set. Some of them where really sweet and romantic. Two stories at the end could have more, but it was interesting.
