    These are three entertaining holiday romantic fantasies

    "Winter Heat" by Dawn Halliday. During a blizzard, Logan Douglas rescues Maggie McDonald finding them shelter where she locates her missing clan pin.

    "Yuletide Enchantment" by Cindy Miles. Isobel McDonald searches for her missing clan pin, but finds mysterious immortal Price in an enchanted forest.

    "A Christmas Spirit" by Sophie Renwick. Visiting museum curator Paige McDonald takes shelter from a freak storm in a castle where she meets Gabriel Munro, a frustrated spirit during the day and a man falling in love at night.

    These are three entertaining holiday romantic fantasies interconnected by the pin that gets around and the McDonald clan (past and present).

    Good read, sexy and captivating

    This book was to be the prequal/intro to the Chronicals of Annwyn. It touches back on the ancestry of the Velvet Haven Charcters. Its 3 short stories in 1 book. Each story is unique and good. However, I found it a bit confusing trying to figure out the ties between the 1st and 3rd stories. The 2nd story is more based on Chronicals of Annwyn - Bran and his curse, his uncles and why he cursed.

    Over all, it was a good read, but I liked the 2nd story the best and wish there was more to lead up to Velvet Haven and answer more of the hows and why (ie. Suriel and what happened w/whom and some of the others).

    Different type of Christmas romance stories

    I really enjoyed this book and finished it in one week. I especially liked Dawn's story. All stories had just the right amount of romance. Cindy's and Sophie's stories were very different from the ordinary with a fantasy twist. Nice read!

    A Perfect Anthology-- and holiday gift!

    Usually, I don't rate anthologies very high-- average rating, about a 3.5 or so is common for me. But with Highlander Christmas, there was no doubt in my mind that it would receive a 5 Star rating when I finished the last page!

    When you get three very talented, very popular authors together, and have their stories all published in one book, you're sure to get one spectacular novel out of the deal. And with Highlander Christmas, that's what happened!

    I don't even know where to begin-- all three stories were great, and I so loved reading each and every one!

    Dawn's story, the first in the novel, could quite possibly be my all-time favorite of the three, if I had to choose. I almost forgot that her story was supposed to be a novella, part of an anthology, and therefore shorter in pages than usual-- you can't even tell! Why? Because the characters came alive in the pages, flourished and developed, and the connection, the love, between hero and heroine was clearly there, and very well done. Something that, usually, can be a bit challenging to accomplish in a shortened novel.

    But Dawn, well, I already knew from her previous work that she could do it, and once again she managed to grab me from page one, and wrap the magic of her story-telling around me until the very end. Touching, passionate, and witty, I loved her "Winter Heat", which will definitely help to keep a reader warm during the upcoming winter evenings, snuggled up by the fire with this book! *Wink*


    Next up was Sophie's "Yuletide Enchantment". Now, I've not yet read any of Sophie's contemporary romances, but I've been anxiously awaiting her upcoming paranormal series-- and this short novel is a bit of a prequel, I guess you could call it, for said series.

    After reading this one, my mind was still a bit numb-- wow! I thought the plot/theme alone was very unique, not the usual ones filling the shelves today, and the story flowed nicely-- again, I almost couldn't tell it was a novella instead of a full length! The only problem, if you could call it that, is that the story teased me, leaving off at the end, and torturing me until the first novel, Velvet Haven, comes out this next year! *Cries* Otherwise, the characters were well done (and the hero, by the way, is very yummy!), there was plenty of romance, action, and a good dash of magic to captivate the reader!


    The last story was Cindy's "A Christmas Spirit". I've read one of her books before, and I did enjoy it, so I had a fairly good idea of what to expect in this one-- and again, I wasn't disappointed. Although, to be honest, out of the three I would have to say this one would receive my lowest rating on it's own (but no lower than 4 stars, if that!), it was only because I didn't quiet feel the pull between the hero and heroine in her story. It was there, but it felt like it was a bit, well, rushed, like most novellas, and it only came in stronger at the very end. But I do enjoy her writing still, I always find a few witty areas and more than a few "Aw!" ones as well.

    5 STARS! Over all, these three well-known authors worked their magic over the reader, pulling them in, and holding them in thrall until the very end. Wonderful, enchanting, and passionately written, these three paranormal Christmas novellas will leave you wanting only one thing: the hero to have as your own! Move over, fated heroines, you're going to have competition soon!
