Published by Avon
Under the Kilt by Christina Dodd
One slippery Scottish lass with abandonment issues and the wily Englishman determined to catch her, let the fun begin!
I know this one is part of a series, and if the series is as cute, romantic and a touch naughty like this short story was then I think I need to look for the first book! It was a good start to the anthology.
Rose in Bloom by Stephanie Laurens
Rose was always a thorn in Duncan’s side when they were children, but now they are all grown and now Duncan wants to turn the tables and play a few adult games with his delectable thorn…
Och I love a broody Scottish hero and Stephanie Lauren delivered and it was fun watching Duncan and Rose realize their attraction for one another. Although not my favourite story it was a good quick read with a satisfying *waggles eyebrows* ending.
Gretna Greene by Julia Quinn
Margaret is looking for her imbecile of a brother who has decided to run off to Gretna to marry a very unsuitable bride, instead she finds Angus, a vexing, gallant and very attractive Scotsman. Angus is looking for his moronic sister who has decided to runaway to London he never meant to come to the rescue of a bedraggled, beautiful and argumentative Englishwoman…
I got this anthology when I saw that Julia Quinn had a short story in it, I love her books they are always funny, sweet and a little quirky. This one was no exception, I loved it! My only complaint…why wasn’t it longer? Before I knew it I had finished it.
The Glenlyon Bride by Karen Ranney
A classic tale involving a case of mistaken identity, a prophecy and…whiskey!?
I liked this, but I think I was still flying high after having read the Julia Quinn story so it didn’t really capture my attention. But it was okay, the hero and heroine were likable and it had a air of mystery and almost magic with their clandestine moonlit meetings and a prophecy weighing heavily on the hero’s mind. A solid addition to the anthology, but not my favourite
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
