“Perfect reading for in front of your tree this Christmas.”
~ Under the Covers

I always get so excited when a Julia Quinn book is coming out, I’ve yet to read a book by her which I haven’t at least liked a great deal. I was also excited about this anthology, with each author some I had read before, some of which were brand new to me all collaborating to bring us separate stories, all connected by two common threads: friendship and a lucky sixpence.

Like with most anthologies there are highs and lows, some authors style that suit me and some that I found it harder to get through. I wasn’t surprised that I really enjoyed Quinn’s novella …and a Sixpence in Her Shoe, it was delightful tale of an unconventional young woman finding just the right one eyed man for her. I devoured it.

I was surprised though that I didn’t like Laura Lee Guhrke’s offering more, I have read a few of her books in the past and have always enjoyed them. However, I really struggled to read Something Blue not because there was anything wrong with it, I confess I was just…bored by it. Sloane’s Something New and Elizabeth Boyle’s Something Borrowed although not my favourite in the anthology were both fun romantic tales that leave you feeling good and eager for the next story.

This anthology is a great read if you are looking to read some of the well known authors of Historical Romance that perhaps you haven’t had a chance to read before. Each story has its merits and you’re bound to find you fall in love with at least one of them. Perfect reading for in front of your tree this Christmas.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?

This is why I don’t do anthologies… I am usually only buying them to read 1 or 2 authors and am left disappointed
