Overview

Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Spring Vacation Collection. Readers will love this collection of six sweet contemporary romance novellas, centered on a Spring Vacation, all with one thing in common: Romance.

In Moonlight Kiss, a delightful story by Josi S. Kilpack, Sarah is looking forward to the company retreat, namely because she'll finally meet Clint--the man she's been Instant Messaging for a few months. As a single mom, Sarah gets out . . . well, never. So adding vacation days onto the retreat so she can spend time with Clint is daring, yet exciting. She just hopes that the suave on-line Clint will live up to the man she hopes to share her heart with.

In Annette Lyon's charming novella, Chasing Tess, Tess had been patiently waiting through three years of law school for James to pop the question. The night has finally arrived--at his graduation party. But his big announcement turns out to be completely unexpected . . . and devastating. Tess flees the party, promising herself she'll never let herself waste time on James again. But as she makes a desperate cross-country drive, James makes his own plans on how to win her back.

Dancing at the Flea Market is a sweet romance by Heather Justesen. Mara, fresh out of the cold North Dakota tundra, spends her spring break in Texas with close friend, Anna. When the two women run into Carter, an impatient man with a painful past, it takes hearing Mara's stunning voice at the local Karaoke club to thaw his heart. But as Mara gets to know Carter, she has to decide if the distance between their lives and homes is worth trying to bridge.

In Sarah M. Eden's captivating novella, The Best Laid Plans, Madison gives up a vacation to Cancún with her office friends to return home and babysit her mother, who is in another sketchy relationship. The only problem with returning home is running into Derek, her ex-boyfriend who she decided to break up with before he could break up with her--Madison believes in always being one step ahead. When Derek teams up with Madison to investigate whether her mother is dating the right guy, Madison has a hard time ignoring what her heart is telling her about giving Derek another chance.

Picture Perfect, an exciting story by Heather B. Moore, follows Gemma who has never done anything out of the ordinary, until her boyfriend Randy starts to ignore her. But even cutting and dyeing her hair doesn't get his attention. She decides to join her old high school friends for spring vacation, only to be faced with Drew, her best friend who suddenly seems interested in her as more than a friend. Gemma must determine if her heart is on the rebound or if it's finally met its true match.

In Aubrey Mace's enchanting romance, The Science of Sentiment, Rosie will do anything to forget Kevin, his completely perfect kisses, and the fact that he dumped her. When she arrives at her grandfather's mountain cabin for a spring getaway, she discovers her worst nightmare--Kevin has been invited to stay the weekend too. Since there is only room for one in such a small space, Rosie is determined to kick Kevin out. But Kevin has other plans . . . which might include a reminder of why he's the perfect kisser.

Editorial Reviews

InD'Tale Magazine - Stephenia McGee
All six books are wonderfully well-written... like a buffet of mini desserts: diverse, delectable, sweet and satisfying
Amazon - Aimee Brown
Ah... I've been to my happy place. Six sweet romances compiled into one awesome book. These are some of my favorite writers.
Amazon - Susan Russell
These collection of romance stories are delightful! I am so impressed with all of the authors.
Deseret News - Melissa Demoux
Each story is unique and sentimental in its own way. The characters are vibrant and well-developed, even though the stories they inhabit are brief. Of course some stories will appeal more to some readers than others. With a broad range of characters and backgrounds, readers will surely find a piece of real life wrapped into these tales.

    I love this second book of mini stories  Spring Vacation Collect

    I love this second book of mini stories  Spring Vacation Collection. The stories are long enough to introduce characters and have a plot but short enough for a fun one evening read. I am familiar with several of the authors in this collection, and their stories do not disappoint! 
    I really liked Heather Moores, "Picture Perfect" story. Its book two of her "Aliso Creek Novella" series, but the books don't have to be read together or even in order to get to know the characters. I was a little surprised with the steamier kissing scenes because I'm use to very clean christian fiction books, but there wasn't any sex scenes so it was still clean reading! I loved the little romance story and triangle with Gemma. I won't give the end of the story away, but it will leave you saying "awwww, that was a great ending!"

    This is a very enjoyable book full of six well-written and fun short stories.  Each one is very unique, and most importantly, clean romances with awesome characters.  I was quickly taken into each story with their fun plots and spring settings.  As I was reading each story, I was sure it was my favorite, then I would start the next one, and it became my new favorite.  Each story has its share of great kisses.  The kiss in Heather Moore's Picture Perfect... WOW! 
    5 out of 5 stars.  As you finish each story, you will be happily wanting more.  I can't wait for Summer Wedding Collection in May.

    This book contains six short stories from different authors so you could think of it as a sampling platter of authors, all with their own "flavor" of writing. I read work from authors I've never heard of before and after finishing the book I'm very interested in reading more from all of the authors. I found it hard to put down any of the stories while reading them. One of the positives to having a book of short stories is you can take a break before starting the next one...a great advantage for a mother of three! The stories all have enough romance to keep the reader engaged, but also leave plenty to the imagination. Great read!

    Truly enjoyable. These authors have taught me to appreciate nov

    Truly enjoyable. These authors have taught me to appreciate novellas. Clean romance with just just a glimpse of the relationship. Enough to see how the characters overcame obstacles that were keeping them apart. A peek into their emotions. A taste of true love.

    I was drawn to this book so that I could read Heather Moore's "Picture Perfect." For me this was the 5th of her Aliso Creek Novellas. They can be read in any order though. I was so excited to read Gemma's story. I think her story is my favorite! She and Drew had been best friends for so many years. They had each been through many relationships. I loved watching them take tentative steps toward a more romantic relationship between each other.

    The other authors in this book did not disappoint either. A spring vacation is the perfect setting to tell a short story. In "Moonlight Kiss" Josi S. Kilpack tells a touching story about a young mom who rarely takes time for herself, but made the exception for the company retreat. She learns about herself as she explores new relationships.

    Each story in this collections made me smile. I like to read one each evening before I turn in for the night. A sweet little something to help me fall asleep with a sigh.

    more from this reviewer

    I love these collections of Short Romance Stories.  I have read

    I love these collections of Short Romance Stories.  I have read The Winter Collection and The Summer Wedding Collection.  

    Each of these stories is short and therefore the conflict is resolved without too much trouble.  But that is what I like about these collections.  They provide a quick, happy story.  

    Sometimes when I am feeling stressed, it is hard for me to concentrate on a book.  I can't seem to focus on it long enough to remember what I read.  That is when these collections are perfect for me.  I can sit, read, and be happy for a few minutes.  And then go on to being stressed again.  This collection is like my own mini vacation.  

    Warnings: Heavy kissing in some of the stories

    I would let my 15 year old read this book based on cleanliness, however, most of the characters are in their later 20's and I don't think she would identify with their circumstances.

    Great and fun read!

    These books were wonderful, and so nice to read a quick one here or there when I had time. I liked some of them more than others, but it also had to do with the author, I think. I loved getting a taste for each author and their style. You will really enjoy this collection!
