    Not my favorite

    This was okay reading. The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance was SO much better. I only enjoyed two stories out of this book.

    Loved it!!!!

    I was very surprised that I really enjoyed this. I highly recommend it. Very good read on a cold winter day with a blanket and hot chocolate.

    Disappointing

    Honestly, I never made it past the first story. It was that bad. Every cliche in the world, a relationship based on Lord only knows what and a totally predictable ending. Not in a good way. There may be some good stories buried in there, but I'm not willing to waste my time to find them amongst the rubbish heap.
