Library JournalLove comes unexpectedly to three couples in this romantic holiday trilogy. A still-grieving widow is dragged off to St. Kitts by her well-meaning best friend for a Christmas getaway and finds love on the beach with a kindred soul in Amethyst's "From SKB with Love"; a couple from vastly different backgrounds eventually find common ground as they become involved in a local community center in Farrah Rochon's Kwanzaa-linked "No Ordinary Gift"; and matchmaking angels and the online world combine to bring a pair of coworkers together in time to ring in the New Year in Stefanie Worth's "HeavenSent.com." VERDICT Although the stories vary in quality, this sensual trio is diverse, modern, and romantic and recalls some of Arabesque's earlier traditional holiday anthologies.

"From SKB with Love" by Jewel Amethyst'. Widow Venetta planned to stay home for Christmas and grieve her beloved MJ's death as she always does during Christmas; but her friend Kerina won the lotto and insistd they, along with two other BFFs, go to St. Kitts to escape the Baltimore cold. There she meets Sean, but as she falls in love Venetta fears losing the memory of her first love. "No Ordinary Gift" by Farrah Rochon. Kemah worked hard to come a long way from her impoverished childhood while her first love Tyson grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. She tries to give something back to the community working at the Darolyn Crawford Community Center. He is the director who cares about the children putting his money up. However, Tyson has another goal besides making the center a success; he wants Kemah before the Kwanzaa celebration ends. "HeavenSent.com" by Stefanie Worth. Brenna and Evan have met all types of losers on line and off. Both seek a perfect everlasting relationship, but with each respective failed encounter they are ready to call it quits on dating. That is until matchmaking guardian angels pair them up for New Year's Eve. These three African-American holiday romances are fun reading, as each contains a different holiday to celebrate. Although the women are fully developed, the men are not quite so, but fans will enjoy these hunks going after the women who make them want to celebrate the season and much more. Harriet Klausner
