Summed up Rating of all 4 novellas! Only completed this because it was a novella. Otherwise a definite DNF! Rose in Bloom by Stephanie Laurens -5 Stars! This one was by far the best of the bunch!
I just did NOT want this book to end! So if your a fan of her usual reads fill Summed up Rating of all 4 novellas! So if your a fan of her usual reads filled with sparky characters and insta-love. The plot worked because it was a novella. It probably wouldn't have if it was a full length novel. So I'm glad : Overall,Great read! Would recommend them View all 4 comments. Sep 16, Andrea rated it liked it Shelves: historical-romance , novella. He ends up at Andra MacNachtan's desolate castle, and quickly falls in love with her.
But she sends him away Two months later, his sister has enough of his pining and sends him back with the promise of a story Andra withheld from him. If you enjoy this kind of "hero", go for it: She didn't realize that the veneer of civilization wore thin when a man was deprived of his mate. She'd never confronted such resourceful tactics before, and she objected with silly squeaks of dismay.
Blast you. Not there! Not-" Hadden was an ordinary man with ordinary needs and an ordinary temperament. This is to say, he was kind, understanding, hardworking, good-temepered, and logical. If, like me, you hate nothing more than a woman saying "no" even though she really means "take me, I'm yours" and a hero who acts like he deserves a prize for refraining from penetration while ignoring every "no" because he knows what the woman really needs is an orgasm, and a woman who then gets mad when he does accept her "no" I'm not kidding, she kept saying "no" for a good four pages and ends up being taken face-down on a rug because her "no"s really didn't mean no, stay away from this one.
One star. Absolutely not my thing. Now Duncan is supposed to chose a bride, and his mother had the nerve to invite the thorn in his side to his house! A lot of hilarious bickering and baiting ensues, and I was thoroughly charmed!
Absolutely magical Midsummer Eve's story! They meet in the rain and within seconds start bickering like an old married couple. It was so hilarious and heartwarming! I'm not really a fan of insta-love, but these two are just so perfect for each other, I never doubted that they belonged together.
All the stars I can give!!! When her cosin is promised to a Scotsman to stop him raiding the family's land, one magical night she is mistaken for her cousin by him, and she is willing to deceive him for just one adventure.
I know some if my friends liked this story best, but I didn't really enjoy it. I didn't like that she deceived him, and that, superstitious as he was, he just accepted that the woman he liked wasn't the one the legend he believed in so much promised would turn around his fate.
Plus, the cousin was just awful. I wanted to punch her so much I thought the romance aside from the lying was nice and magical, though. It just didn't grip me as the two middle stories did. Overall, 3 stars for the collection. Sep 12, Karishma marked it as read-before Review will be updated as I read the stories in the anthology. Gretna Greene by Julia Quinn - 3. Therese two were made for each other without a doubt. There was an abrupt transition between two chapters though which was quite jarring.
Couldn't bring myself to finish more than one and a Review will be updated as I read the stories in the anthology. Couldn't bring myself to finish more than one and a half chapters.
Apr 21, Diana rated it liked it Shelves: romance , historical-romance , anthologies. Under the Kilt : Hadden storms back into Andra's life after a brief but passionate affair to see the famed marriage kilt of her family and to win her back. This was one of the weaker installments, with Andra being too lofty and shrewish, and the romance was too incomplete, since we come in on the middle of it.
Rose in Bloom : Childhood friends Duncan and Rose are reunited at Duncan's home with both of their potential spouses and discover that their adversarial relationship has turned to something de Under the Kilt : Hadden storms back into Andra's life after a brief but passionate affair to see the famed marriage kilt of her family and to win her back.
Rose in Bloom : Childhood friends Duncan and Rose are reunited at Duncan's home with both of their potential spouses and discover that their adversarial relationship has turned to something deeper. Absolutely wonderful; easily the best of the four stories. Rose and Duncan have a great rapport and click together.
This is one of those stories that actually does feel complete as a short story, and not rushed or incomplete; this is maybe because they already know each other well.
Caught in a downpour, they end up posing as a married couple and sharing a room.
When Scotsman Angus Greene learns that his sister has run away to London, he chases her all the way to England, determined to prevent her from making a terrible mistake. But when Margaret and Angus meet up at the border, their siblings are nowhere to be found, and this mismatched pair discovers that love often blossoms in the most unexpected places…. She had squeezed herself into an overcrowded hired coach in Cumbria and tried not to breathe when she realized that her fellow passengers apparently did not share her fondness for bathing. All to end up here, at Gretna Green, wet and tired, with little more than the coat on her back and two coins in her pocket. On the Cumbria coach, someone had had the temerity to steal her reticule, leaving her with only the coins that had slipped out and settled into the deepest recesses of her pocket.
