I love Anthology books. Sometimes i know all the authors and sometimes i know none of them or a mix of both. In this one though i had only read one author previously and that is Jill Shalvis. Her being in this makes it a must buy for me hands down. I of course was not disappointed. Even in novella form Jill Shalvis delivers a part fun part emotional story with a sexy hero and of course it's Lucky Harbor. Win for me since i love the series. I've been hearing about Kristen Ashley books so i was excited to read her contribution. I had to admit i was a little lost because it seems her novella is part of a series and i have not read it. I still enjoyed it and just guessed at some of the back story. Since reading this i am looking more into Chaos series and bought book one. The other three authors i have heard of but haven't read either and it was interesting to try them out as well and see if i liked their writing style. Hope Ramsey's addition touched my heart. Such a sweet story about giving this a 2nd try and finding love. Molly Cannon's novella was fun and fabulous with a bit of a seemingly stick in the mud accountant and a full of energy organizer extraordinaire named Dinah. Last but not least is Marilyn Pappano's A Family For Christmas. Jared and Ilena will tug at your heart strings as well in this novella. Jared moved away from his disapproving parents to be a pediatrician in rural Oklahoma and didn't expect to fall in love with a sweet sexy elf with a baby and a bit of a sad story. Overall I enjoyed all the short stories in this anthology and i would recommend it to anyone who hasn't read these authors and find out what you've been missing.
