    Four stories in one.

    The Fall of Rogue Gerrard by Stephanie Laurens<BR/><BR/>Lydia Makepeace needs to infiltrate the home of Lord Alconbury in order to retrieve a letter her sister had written. Problem is that Lord Alconbury has several guests and nightly orgies that do not end until past dawn. After scoping out Alconbury's home one evening, Lydia returns to the inn and is shocked to see Lord Gerrard "Ro". Perhaps Lydia can get a bit of help. **** A bit of adventure with this romance - and who would not enjoy that? **** <BR/><BR/>Spellbound by Mary Balogh<BR/><BR/>Long ago Nora Ryder had been the daughter of a gentleman of vast wealth and political influence. Richard had been her father's secretary. Now their situation has reversed. Richard Kemp is a baron and Nora is penniless. Having recently left a position, unpaid, she has no choice but to return to her brother's home until she can find new employment. Unfortunately, the stagecoach she was to travel on has collided with a gentleman's vehicle. Richard's. Will her heart survive seeing him again? **** To tell more of the couple's background would spoil the fun. Rest assured that the story is well done with an interesting twist or two. **** <BR/><BR/>Only You by Jacquie D'Alessandro<BR/><BR/>Ten years ago Cassie became Countess Westmore. In doing so she left her only friend, Ethan, behind and entered purgatory. Now a widow, Cassie returns to Cornwall. Ethan now owns and operates the Blue Seas Inn in St. Ives. Before returning to her parents, Cassie decides to spend one evening at the inn. Perhaps he will be there. **** Pure romance that left me with a warm glow. The story is spiced in a way that only Jacquie D'Alessandro can do. **** <BR/><BR/>From This Moment On by Candice Hern<BR/><BR/>She had been plain Wilma Jepp at one time. He had been plain Samuel Pellow. She thought he was dead. Instead Sam had gone into the navy - unwillingly. When her mother tossed her out, Wilma did the only thing she could do to survive. She became a mistress. Today she is the Duchess of Herford, widowed for over three years. Samuel is a retired blockade captain. Fate brings them together at an inn one stormy day and Destiny will do her best to keep them that way. **** This romance moves at a slower pace than the previous ones. It is mostly two people reminiscing about the hard choices each made in their past. The author has added some humor to keep things light and she has done it in a very sneaky way. **** <BR/><BR/>Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.

    GOOD BUT.....

    The idea for this book was great- four different stories and four different authors but the same plot for them all. The stories were good, very touching, but there was a lot of sex.

    enjoyable anthology

    'The Fall of Rogue Gerrard' by Stephanie Laurens. Robert and Lydia search for some missing papers he may be the rake, but she has the seduction planned.---------------- 'Spellbound¿ by Mary Balogh. A decade ago Nora and Richard eloped, but her family annulled the marriage. Richard rescues Nora from a coaching accident both want to elope again as they remain in love.------------ 'Only You' by Jacquie D'Alessandro. Widow Cassandra Heywood has always loved the innkeeper Ethan though their social classes keep them apart until now she is determined to marry her beloved------------ 'From This Moment On' by Candice Hern. While at war, Sam hid his love for Wilhelmina. Now home, the former captain plans to make the duchess his wife.--------------- The plot premise of this enjoyable anthology as described by Ms. Balogh in A Letter to the Reader is: ¿A man and a woman, who have not seen each other in ten years, meet again when they find themselves staying at the same inn for a twenty-four hour period.¿ That concept provides the underlying fascination to this compilation as historical romance fans will compare each work (and rank them). These are four gutsy authors to do this somewhat limiting method. However, each provides a strong novella starring interesting lead couples and more important different well written slants on the basic theme.--------------- Harriet Klausner
