The One That Got Away Anthology The Authors did an excellent job on these stories. You are not sure who the hero is at first or what direction the story will go. They have one suitor that you think is the main character but then a new one shows up. Or it will seem that their lives have such huge chasms between them that there can be no bridges, but with love there is always a way. The Trouble With Charlotte by Victoria Alexander Marcus Pennington is close to falling in love with Charlotte, a widow of six years. He is relaying his story to his friend, Reggie, a month after the incident. Both Reggie and Marcus are from the Effington Series. Just as Marcus shares a wondrous kiss with Charlotte her dead husband walks back into her life. Will she give Hugh Robb a second chance? Another great read from Victoria. **Sexual situations. Much Ado About Twelfth Night by Liz Carlyle The war hardened Edward Addison is now burdened with bringing back Sheridan to it's former glory after his brother Reggie had run it down and put it in debt. As the new Earl it now fell on his shoulders. Sophie has cared for Edward more then she even realized. He once asked her to marry him eight years ago but she knew like all things, he was doing it out of duty. Now they are heading to a house party at Sheridan and she is hoping to buy a prized racehorse from him that his brother had overpaid for just to have, Twelfth Night. Between intercommunicating and eavesdropping that was misunderstood Edward and Sophie just don't seem to connect even though they really both want the same thing. Great story. **Sexual situations. A Fool Again by Eloisa James Genevieve had fallen for her neighbor when she was eighteen. Where she was taught to be lady the Darby boys were mischievous and always having fun. So she went off to Gretna Green with Tobias only to be caught by her father before they get there, but not before she was ruined, Tobias never offered for her and she was married off to a stingy old man instead. Now she is a widow but must marry a man of his choosing to keep any inheritance. So she chooses Felton. And then Tobias returns. Can she give up being the sophisticated lady she striven so long for or will the passion between Tobias and her reunite? **Sexual situations. Nightingale by Cathy Maxwell When the love of Sir Dane Pendleton marries another, it sets him on a course that hardened his heart and gained riches. Whereas Jemma ended up in poverty after the death of her husband who did not handle his money well. With all his wealth it seems he is still empty. Can Jemma and Dane find their way back to each other after ten years of choices that took them further apart? **Sexual situations.

¿The Trouble with Charlotte¿ by Victoria Alexander. Widow Charlotte may have lost her husband at sea, but knows to remain safe she must remarry. However, as she decides who to wed, the reported death of her spouse proves exaggerated as Captain Hugh Robb comes home with a need to be with his wife............................. ¿Much Ado about Twelfth Night¿ by Liz Carlyle. Just out of the military, Rythorpe is panicking because Grandmama expects him to wed Sophie shortly. He asks Oliver for help as he wants to enjoy some civilian time before marrying. In an ironic comedy of errors, Oliver understands until he meets Sophie and soon wants to be the groom to the woman he loves..................... ¿A Fool Again¿ by Eloisa James. Widow Genevieve is unhappy because her late husband placed an undesired stipulation in his will. She must remarry in two years or lose everything. The weighty Tobias is beneath her station, but wants her, not her money, while Lord Felton is her equal but could use an influx of pounds. Which muckworm will she choose?....................... ¿Nightingale¿ by Cathy Maxwell. Cris has to be an idiot challenging Dane to a duel, as the latter is the best. Jemma knows she must plead for her brother¿s life, but she thinks Dane must hate her as she rejected his suit several years ago.......................... These four novellas are delightful historical romances starring likable protagonists who readers will enjoy as they ponder to be wed or not to be wed for love....................... Harriet Klausner

This anthology is about the loves ' that got away'. Each of these short stories are written by famous romance authors. Im sorry to say that these stories were not that great. Why? Two main reasons: 1. I think that most if not all of the short stories seemed all the same. After the second story i got bored 2. The theme of ' the one that got away' is usually filled with pain, anger, hurt and regret...for the story to work an author needs a few chapters to delve into all that time and pain for both the hero and heroine. These stories were well written but not enough depth. This was a mediocre get away for me. There are better books for the price available.

All the authors did a very good job with their stories. The biggest probelm with short stories often is the time line but I found that these stories moved along at the right speed.

I often find that I'm really disappointed in these kind of collections but I really loved all the stories in this one, especially Carlyle and Eloisa James. They were terrific--really sexy, funny and SMART! Don't miss this book.

Harrie klausner strikes again, ruining another book with her plot spoilers. Get rid of her already bn. She and orhers like her are costing you money. I will not buy a book after harriet klausner and other plot revealers tell every detail. You are losing money because of them.
