Due to word count limit, full review is posted at Reader's Edyn: readersedyn (dot) blogspot (dor) com ~~~ it includes a breakdown of each individual story. ~~~ My thoughts: ~~~ My overall experience with this book was enjoyable. I have said quite a lot recently that at times I feel completely swamped with the level of sex in the romance novels I read. Seems like the farther the authors push it, the higher they raise the fence. Like, who can break through the next level of taboo and make it still readable. And … I also have friends and family that are not as *cough* how do I say this … open-minded as I am *coughs* with the material they read. It is refreshing to be able to recommend stories to those whom I know would not be able to handle certain … errr … stories otherwise. That said, I can definitely recommend this book to everyone. There is no foul language and such a limited hint of sex that I cannot imagine anyone being offended by the contents of any of the stories. All stories are Texas-themed historical romance. Who doesn’t love the cowboy that finally finds his other half, while still remaining the tough protector that everyone else sees him as? Not me! While I have not had the pleasure of reading any of these authors before, I am thankful that I was allowed a taste of all four of them and their writing styles. I have a love/dislike relationship with anthologies. I love them because they are, in a way, a sampler of multiple authors. You can take a glimpse into the writing style of many authors within one book. Rather than buying four separate books and not knowing if you will be satisfied or not, you can take a short cut of sorts through anthologies. But what I object to about anthologies are that they oftentimes lack the components of a really good book because the stories are so short. You just don’t have enough time to get to know the characters in depth and still experience the conflict prior to the happily-ever-after. However, having no prior knowledge of these authors, I can honestly say that I enjoyed all of the stories for different reasons. One of the stories I really enjoyed, but the ending ruined it for me. For the most part, this is an anthology that worked and I am very pleased to have spent my time reading it. I will break down each story individually with a quick summary, followed by my personal thoughts on the story. (Uncorrected Proof provided by Kensington for review)

these are 4 wonderful romantic stories, written by 4 very good authors. to describe each and every story would take too much room here, but if you want to have a day of very pleasurable reading, this is your book. i am glad i didn't miss this one or the other 4 these authors have joined together to write.

Ms. Thomas' story is, as usual, sweet and well-written. I enjoy her style. It's a good thing it was first in the anthology, because I might not have made it to her story if I had to trudge through the others first. The quality of these is seriously questionable. What editor accepts this stuff? It has all the awkwardness of a high school kid trying to pull of Shakespeare. I won't purchase another anthology. It's just not worth the eye-rolling/ skimming effort.

What a great read. I always love the romance these 4 female authors write. I'm recommending it to all my friends. It's a book you don't want to put down. What great characters and life situations.

4 stories for Valentine's Day The Valentine's Curse Valerie is a widow, two times over. She accompanies her father to the local dance where the whole neighborhood is. Brody is just in from tracking down some cattle and is given orders from his boss' wife to attend the dance. He is also told to sit near the widow and talk to her. She has a curse that the whole town bets on how long any relationship will last before her next spouse is dead. Brody thinks it's all superstitious and pays no mind to it all. He walks away into a dark section and she's going to say goodnight and he hugs her and gives her a kiss. He stops to get the bosses wife sewing machine and she is there and he helps out. He finds himself there again another time and helps out. He gets another hug and their relationship starts slowly. He's a loner and not too sure about women and she's had two husbands and is very shy, it's a wonder they even connected at all. She gives him an ultimatum and he agrees to become her husband, tend the farm/ranch and she will live up to her party as a wife. The old boss has some cattle delivered to him as he's the only one to understand them so he has to fix up the fences so they can roam and fatten up. Trouble arises and after a whole day goes by and he's not returned Valerie heads to the old boss and they send out the search parties to locate him. She figures if it's such a curse she at least wants to buy his bones on her property. Lot of tender slow love in this book. You can tell they really are learning about one another and just taking things slow. Really appreciated having the epilogue so we'd not have to guess as to what happened over time. Cupid's Arrow by Linda Broday Logan is back in town and runs into Rue Ann while she's leaving a store. She is set to marry Theodore and he's been seeing a lot of Charlotte. With some help from elderly ladies who like to play pranks and have relationships go their way they play a huge part in getting couples together that they know will work. This reminds me of The Waltons and the elderly sisters who always come to visit their neighbors. Little do they realize all the lies and arrangements to work against what they want. Arranged marriages and deals in the backroom are made to advance their careers. Others have lied to keep them apart and destroy their lives in town. Loving Miss Laurel Phyliss Miranda The men in town want business to pick up via the railroad so they need to spend the money on paving the main road. The women don't think the town is at all ready for that growth so they want to spend the money on a library for the kids to enjoy now. Some women disguised themselves as boys and overheard the meeting that went on and report back to the mayor's wife. Laurel has just returned from the East and is appointed the new womens society president job. The men have their own club and will stand behind the new paving. The women will stand behind the new library. The men plot to have a Valentine supper and dance and the women plot to raise more money by providing free beer to them the proceeds going towards the library. Problem is that's all the women dressed as boys heard so they went to the newspaper and got things mixed up and that's what was printed in the next newspaper. They didn't get the mens' side which was not what was printed. Laurel gets mad at her uncle and leaves the house, thinks she'll take the job of president of the womans' society and do bookkeeping f

An enjoyable read about love between four tough women and the men they truly care about. Got me looking forward to Valentine's Day. Easy read by four of the finest western women writers around today.
