With the simple stipulation that each story involve a hero and heroine who have been separated for more than a decade and then reconnect at the same roadside inn, this unique collection of sensual novellas, each set during a different season of the year, is the elegant result. A winter rainstorm strands a rake and the childhood friend he grew up protecting and lets their latent passions flare in Laurens's sultry "The Fall of Rogue Gerrard." A carriage accident and a May Day celebration untangle years of misunderstandings for a pair torn apart by family interference in Mary Balogh's poignant "Spellbound." A cruelly used widow defies society's conventions and finds happiness with her childhood love in Jacquie D'Alessandro's emotionally satisfying "Only You." A young couple brutally separated live vastly different lives only to learn some important truths and find love 25 years later in Candice Hern's refreshingly unconventional "From This Moment On." This cleverly conceived, beautifully executed collection highlights the critical importance of the individual writer's voice, tone, style, and creativity and goes a long way toward refuting the notion that romances are all alike.
