I have been a fan of Ms. Carr's writing for a while now. Her characters are all different and unique. She reinvents herself with each story. Although, I didn't believe Sunny was the perfect name for the heroine, just because the heroine was a pessimist. Sunny started out as being too negative. But after meeting Drew things seem to turn around for her. It took Drew coming into Sunny's life in order for her to heal and to get over being left at the altar. It also took Drew to prove to Sunny that there is that perfect someone for everyone. Overall it was a great story and one I would recommend for those who need a pick-me-up.

Midnight Surrender by Jean Brashear

Jean Brashear is definitely an author on my top twenty list.hey it's hard to have top tens when it comes to authors. From the first moment I picked up a Brashear book I was caught. She has a unique voice, one completely different than most Harlequin authors, which is why I think makes her so unique. And oh, boy did she ever capture my heart with this story. Will, an Irish hunk (my weakness) is searching for the perfect woman and he finds her in Jordon. But Jordon isn't your typical woman, she's what some would call a "man-eater" she uses men and then pushes them away. Can Will finally convince Jordon that some things are just meant to be?

Midnight Assignment by Victoria Dahl

Victoria Dahl is a new author for me. And I have to say I can't wait to read more from this author. When I realized that this book was set in a financial setting I almost set it to the side. Who wants to read something that is going to make you yawn and feel like you are in math class again? But I kept reading curious to see if Ms. Dahl could keep my attention. Was I ever blown away or what? The characters had wit, the setting became a little naughty fantasy for the reader. And the story kept developing with new twists and turns. It wasn't the same boring office romance. This an author I want to tell everyone to watch out for.

If you're looking for a great book to read this holiday, and want something you can read in small bites, then pick up this well-written, romantic anthology. It fits the bill.

The first story, Midnight Confessions, features Sunny in depression over being dumped by her fiance. A year ago. She goes to spend the New Year with her Uncle, hoping to get some perspective. While there, she meets Drew, a doctor on New Year's Eve. From then on, it is a battle between their attraction and Sunny's deep, lingering hurt. The story explores themes such as betrayal, forgiveness and second chances. I love Robyn Carr's style of writing. From the first few pages I had a huge grin on my face and she got me laughing out several times. It is poignant and sweet. A good New Year's Eve story. The second story, Midnight Surrender by Jean Brashear is about a 36 year old lawyer, Jordan. Jordan is a hard, bad-ass, don't-give-a-darn kinda girl with a reputation as a man-eater. However, beneath that exterior is a soft heart that has been wounded. Only, that part of her seems invisible to most people. That is, most people except Will. Will is an Irish man who emigrated to the US. Unlike Jordan, Will is earthy and craves hearth and home. Their differences seem exponential. Will works with not-so-quiet determination to prove to Jordan that love does make a difference. It is a nice story and the storyline works for me. The only problem I had was that it seemed to drag a bit. I think it could have done with a lot more dialogue and a lot less narrative. The third and last story in this anthology is Midnight Assignment by Victoria Dahl. Elise Watson is an agent with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Two years ago she kissed fellow agent, Noah James but things did not work out because he had a girlfriend then. Now, two years later, they are working together on an assignment and the tension is electric. Suffering from Noah's previous rejection, Elise has her armour in place. Never, a girly girl in the first place, she is not good with feelings and all that. Things come to a head when they both give in to the passion. However, the debacle from two years before is still hanging over their heads. This story was hard edged and fast paced; same with the love making. There was a touch of sweetness even if that was not the overall feeling one is left with at the end of the story. Nevertheless, Victoria Dahl is a really good story teller and it comes across in this story. All in all, the anthology, Midnight Kiss, was definitely worth the read. Something to curl up with in front of the fire or to take with you on that long commute (if you are the commuting type). The book is a review copy which I got through Netgalley.
