Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Continuing a well-established holiday tradition, Arabesque spotlights three of its authors in this anthology of contemporary romances. In veteran writer Angela Winters's "Home for Christmas," the holiday takes on a special glow for a pair of strong-minded protagonists when they try to put the brakes on their siblings' wedding and end up falling in love themselves. A Kwanzaa festival becomes a life-changing event for an ambitious young businesswoman at odds with the director of an inner-city community center in Niqui Stanhope's inventive "The Gift." And Louise's year-spanning "Impromptu" focuses on a once-jilted woman who almost lets her fears keep her from her dreams. Although the degree to which the holidays matter vary from story to story, the collection as a whole has a warm, festive feel. For readers who like their holiday romances upbeat, urban, and peopled with strong, appealing characters. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
