So I'll admit it these are kind of cheesy stories but really good. These are the sort of stories you want to read on a cold rainy day when your feeling like crap.

Normally, Nora Roberts can do no wrong in my eyes, but she did a whole lot of wrong here. Her character was such a Mary Sue, and everything was way too easy for her. Plus, the relationship didn't get a chance to flourish. Not good at all.

I must've started reading these anthologies backwards.. ah well... :P

The Witching Hour 5/5
I really liked this story! Such a wonderful setup for both the H and h, and I loved reading the scenes when they met one another (or caught sight of one another!). The ending was quite hastily tied together, but it was still satisfying and I loved it all!

Mirror, Mirror 5/5
I loved this story too! For once, the one who needed protecting was neither the H or the h, which made things a lot more interesting. It

Ganhei este livro num passatempo da página"Páginas de uma Lua" (https://www.facebook.com/PaginasDeUma...).
Este livro encontra-se dividido em 4 contos, de 4 autores diferentes. Retratam histórias de amor, sobrevivências e casas estranhos que acontecem à meia-noite. Reparei que todos os contos estão interligados (um episódio ou personagem retratado num conto, aparece seguido noutro conto, o que foi engraçado, não sei se fizeram de propósito).
Dos 4 contos, gostei mais dos dois primeiros. No entanto

This is four books in one. The other authors other than Nora Roberts are: Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan and Marianne Willman. All the stories have mysticl, magical and enchanting connotations.
First Story: "The Witching Hour" is a story about a young woman who has to save a kingdom a terrible King has taken over. A magical wizard has given this young woman her birth-right and powers to save this kingdom at any cost. Finds the stable man Owen who has secrets and demons of his own. They of course

A quick read because once again, the stories didn't really capture my attention and I have so many other things currently to be reading. I'm sure these are fun for the authors because they can use story ideas that either aren't commercial enough for a full novel or don't have enough heft to carry a full story. The Nora Roberts in this one wasn't bad, the others were just fill for me.

Esta antologia possui quatro contos: os dois primeiros desenrolam-se num ambiente de fantasia durante a idade Média e as outras duas nos tempos modernos.

I find most of the stories disappointing. Esp. the second one, the ending is like a story written by a teenager. So cliche. The third one started okay but nearing the end? Ugh. Same goes with the last story. And for the one written by Roberts, it seems to lack the conflict.
Rebekah Torres
I enjoy these "Once Upon a ..." anthologies, they are quick, easy and plain old fun to read. In this collection, my favorites were "The Witching Hour" by Nora Roberts and "Mirror Mirror" by Jill Gregory.
Morpheus Reads
This was kind of a hokey collection of stories (containing magic, sorcery, ancient curses etc.).

Collection of short stories by romance authors including Nora Roberts. No better way for me to enjoy the pool than with a collection of short romances.

I didn't like the 4th story. It didn't flow very well. I feel it wasn't thought through enough and could have been written better.

My take on this is it's an OK book. I'm not a huge fan of short stories so I may not be the best judge.

I'm a fan of this series, but none of these stories really caught me. I was just ho-hum about all of them, which is sad considering the potential.

Not really as gripping or interesting as those in the other series. Too bland and a bit boring for my taste; not enough romance.

A mixed bag of romance stories all focused around magic. Not really my usual read, but I got it for free from a Tiny Free Library. I left a John Grisham book in its place.

Olá,

Como nos têm acostumado estas quatro autoras, sempre do melhor.

Como o próprio nome indica à meia-noite é quando pathos acontece.
