I was very disappointed in four of the five stories (I probably should stop reading anthologies that have more than three stories), there just wasn't enough character development to support the stories. The major expection was Mary Jo Putney's contribution "The Devil's Spawn", mainly because the story is told in segments covering a period of several years rather than jamming HEA into 80+ pages. Mary Balough's story "Precious Rogue" was sweetly funny and the ending was very well done. I didn't like the Hero in Melinda McRae's story, even at the end when he is "redeemed".

The good stories in this book would have been better if they were longer and given time to be more developed. That is the nature if an anthology however, it is what it is.
Mary Balogh: "Precious Rogue" - Rating:A+
Edith Layton: "Buried Treasure"- Rating C-
Melinda McRae: "Sweet Revenge" - Rating A
Anita Mills: "A Good Woman" - Rating B+
Mary Jo Putney: "The Devil's Spawn" - Rating A- I have read some critisism about the "rouse" the hero uses. It struck me like the great silly farces of, lets say a Cary Grant movie and thought it was great fun.

Has a Mary Balogh story: Precious Rogue, which is good. The Anita Mills story was good, too. Worth reading for those two.
