One of the better anthologies. Christina Dodd, Stephanie Laurens, Celeste Bradley, and Leslie LaFoy all write during the Regency period in England, or a little later. There is a smuggling Lord, who was surprised by a fiance he didn't know he had, an unwilling Duke chasing an unwilling bride, twins who change places right before the wedding but aren't able to change back before the wedding night, and in LaFoy's story two people who have been in unrequited love for thirteen years, neither willing to cross the line at the time, but now both are available and nothing is going to prevent him from trying to win her as his bride. I really enjoyed each of these stories and have found a new author I haven't read but will look for more of her stories.
The first story is The Lady and the Tiger by Christina Dodd. Laura Haver is determined to find the person who killed her brother, with or without Keefe Leighton's help. Keefe is determined to keep Laura safe from harm and safe in his arms.
The second story (a VERY hot story) is Melting Ice by Stephanie Laurens. Dyan and Fiona have known each other for years and have always been 2 halves of a whole. When Dyan finds Fiona at a party of "debauchery", he decides that he's going to initiate Fiona in the art of true love.
The third story, which I enjoyed a lot, is Wedding Knight by Celeste Bradley. Alfred Knight has driven all gossiping frivolity from his life by marrying the quiet, demure Trapp girl (and saving his half-brother's arse)... except his new wife has a mind of her own and gladly uses it to bring laughter into Alfred's life again.
The last story is The Proposition by Leslie LaFoy, and I think this was my first LaFoy story. Rennick has been in love with Julia for 13 years. And he's waited patiently for his turn to share his heart with her. Can he get Julia to trust him enough to give him more than a night of pleasure, but a lifetime of love?
All four stories were very fast reads, full of determined heroines and strong heroes, both filled with integrity and passion.

Helpful Score: 2
Deliciously naughty, I do love these authors. Tales with fun characters where the action doesn't stop at " he took her in her arms" only to begin "the next morning". My romances don't have to be rated X but they better be rated R!
