Overview

Twelve all-new stories of women's resilience, empowerment, and fulfillment, by bestselling and award-winning authors.

In this engaging anthology of never-before published stories, twelve authors are united by their unique visions of the female experience. A young woman is torn between the security of her fiancé and the excitement of an old flame; a desperate wife is forced into the workplace for the first time in her life; an ambitious professional woman finally finds the courage to take control of her career; and her man; an emotionally fragile divorcee finds resolve in the ethereal visitations of an archangel...

These are just some of the women who discover and rediscover their own wonderfully fallible but ultimately strong selves in the shadow of love, romantic love, platonic love, new love, and lost love. Readers will be touched, inspired, charmed, and entertained by these original stories of disparate longings, unsettled lives, and the power of love.

Includes 12 stories by New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Foster and Erin McCarthy, Toni Blake, Dianne Castell, Karen Kelley, Rosemary Laurey, Janice Maynard, LuAnn McLane, Lucy Monroe, Patricia Sargeant, Kay Stockham, and J.C. Wilder.

Lori Foster and eleven other well-known, much-loved romance authors have joined together in the making of THE POWER OF LOVE a beautiful anthology, written with a majority of the proceeds benefiting the Battered Women's Shelter of Cincinnati. That these women would volunteer their time and talent comes as no surprise. I've seen their generosity first-hand on more than one occasion when I've put out requests for donations of books and other author goodies for various troop projects. They never fail to be extremely generous.***** These stories are all about women who have overcome pain and heartache and dare to love again. Realistic in that lasting love doesn't always come the first time around and that the best things in life are worth waiting for. These are feel-good stories that are guaranteed to touch your heart.***** Obviously, these are novellas, given the number of authors involved, but I would stress that each is a satisfying story and none are rushed or skimpy.***** I hope you'll check our this wonderful book - think of the women and children you'll be supporting. Consider buying a copy for the special women in your life too!

Every Author has written a touching story of what The Power Of Love can do for their characters. Each story will touch your heart! You will find you cannot turn the pages fast enough to read each ending and then wishing the story was longer.

The Power of Love Edited by Lori Foster Berkley, Jun 2008, $14.00 ISBN: 9780425221488 Twelve romance authors contributed to this superb anthology in which each donated their proceeds to the YWCA Battered Women¿s Shelter of Cincinnati. Besides the worthy cause, each entry is well written and inspiring focusing on a second chance at love by females previously battered (mentally and or physically) in their relationships. Readers will root for the stars who hesitantly risk their souls for love. The tales run the gamut of the genre with my personal favorites being ¿Unpredictable¿ BY Erin McCarthy as no one can resist a French fry eating dog and LuAnn McLane¿s home remedy ¿Chicken Soup for Annie¿. Yet the other ten are entertaining as well as there are no let down clinkers as THE POWER OF LOVE is the essence of living. The authors are a who¿s who of the genre as every contributor is acclaimed for their works and more important to THE POWER OF LOVE didn¿t skimp in the short story format. Besides editor Foster, Toni Blake, Dianne Castell, Karen Kelley, Rosemary Laurey, Janice Maynard, LuAnn McLane, Lucy Monroe, Patricia Sargeant, Kay Stockholm and J.C. Wilder provide warm uplifting entries this top grade authors list says it all for this charming compilation. Harriet Klausner
