As a whole, this is a disappointing read. I'm not entirely sure why ANY of these snippets would be considered a "gem".

Knew it was excerpts from the beginning so I wasn't disappointed.  I have since purchased two of the complete novels.  Excellent opportunity to sample new authors.

Short tibits of numerous books. Wish there was a list of all the books at end so a reader could then look up which book they would like to read rhe entire story.

A nice sampling of the writings of each author. I enjoyed learning more about each author and reading their introduction to their offering. I ended up purchasing a number of the books to read the rest of the story. I also enjoyed the authors' book of Fabulous Firsts... which includes whole novels, some of which had excerpts in this volume. These ladies are truely multifaceted writers and Jewels of historical romance.

It has ten wondrful authors telling their favorit part of the book that each one has wrote. It is just long enough too read before you go to bed or either to drink a cup of hot cholate.

As a disappointing whole, I give the book 2. Only one scene sparked my interest enough that I read it all the way through. The 3rd scene, from "The Devil of Kilmartin" by Lauren Wittig, was pretty good. I'm tempted to get the book so I can read more.
