I won this anthology in an online blog-sponsored contest and would not have normally purchased it. I read it though, on a long train ride through Italy. I really enjoyed it. The stories ranged from sweet to smoking hot. There were three I particularly enjoyed:
After the Gloaming by Leah Marie Brown is the story of a super sexy American and a doomed-to-loom Scottish banshee. It sounds like a far-fetched sotry but this one really got to me. It is tender and hot. My favorite read of the anthology.
Curse Me Wicked by Elle Jasper is the story about a team of paranormal troubleshooters. One of its members gets intimately involved in a curse she's supposed to help break. I guess I am a sucker for stories about cursed souls.
Forever Night by Jackie Ivie is a story about a young man who breaks into a dungeon to rescue his captive brother but who ends up taking the captor's daughter as his hostage. It is a fun story with enough heat to warm up those cold scottish nights.
I was never a romance junkie until I read this anthology. After finishing it, I ordered Silence in the Mist by Leah Marie Brown, The Dark Ink Chronicles by Elle Jasper, and two of Jackie Ivie's novels! Looks like I am a convert!

If you enjoy a good Scottish or Highland romance, these short stories are worth the read. I enjoyed about 1/2 of them immensely and the only reason I didn't enjoy the other 1/2 as much as I could have was due to feeling like the author got to the max page count and said, "OMG, I have to stop now." Many of the stories could have transitioned into wonderful full novels.
Totally loved Donna Grant's Forever Mine, Connie Brockway's The Laird's French Bride, Sandy Blair's Her MacKinnon, Heather McCollum's Highland Heart, Patricia'Grasso's The Pagan Bride...
