This eclectic collection of five Christmas romances by some of Pocket\'s more popular authors runs the gamut in sensuality levels, settings, and tone and uses everything from blizzards and airport delays to magic and ghosts to set the protagonists on the appropriate romantic path. Jude Deveraux revisits Legend, Colorado, and unites a fugitive teacher and the town\'s richest man in The Teacher; an artist and a heart surgeon miraculously discover love in a Detroit hospital in Margaret Allison\'s Christmas Magic; two loners find each other (with a little help from Santa) in Stef Ann Holm\'s funny, whimsical Jolly Holly; and a freak snowstorm and a legendary apparition reunite teenage sweethearts in Mariah Stewart\'s warmly magical If Only in My Dreams. A generally rewarding collection.

These are five original tales about the spirit of Christmas.

THE TEACHER (Jude Deveraux) The only other thing Id read by this author was LAVENDAR MORNING, which I thought was awful. However, this short story about a gutsy teacher (Kathryn de Longe) who tames the wildest child in Legend, Colorado, is a keeper. I loved it so much Ive reread it several times.

CHRISTMAS MAGIC (Margaret Allison) Artist Kim Risson gets a call that her estranged father (head of a surgical department in a major hospital) needs emergency surgery. Kim immediately travels to her father and meets the doctor who is going to do his surgery. Kim stays at her old home; she learns a great deal about her father and herself. With forgiveness, Kim and her father form a new bond.

JOLLY HOLLY (Stef Ann Holm) This story was really original but I just couldnt get into it. It took forever to finish it; Im glad I did. John Wolcott and Isabel Burche were both lonely and dirt poor. A contest brings them together and Santa is a unique character in this tale.

IF ONLY IN MY DREAM (Mariah Stewart) This story about soul mates Quinn Hollister and Cale McKenzie is dazzling in its simplicity and beauty. Planning to elope 12 years ago, their meeting didnt take place and each went his own way. Now a blizzard brings Quinn to Cales old home and they meet again. It is obvious that they still love each other and Cales twin sons bring them back together.

WHITE OUT (Linda Howard) Caught in a blizzard, Price Tanner stumbles upon an isolated cabin owned by Hope Bradshaw. She saves his life but soon learns that there are escaped felons and police officers loose in the storm. This leads to an interesting mystery of who Price really is. I was stunned by their first sexual encounter Hope was almost unconscious when it occurred. Hmmmm.

Especially enjoyed the story by Linda Howard "White Out"...I am familiar with her hardback thrillers, so it was fun to see an old fashioned romance by her. Also, Jude Deveraux, always fun to see the town of Legend.

I did not expect this book to be like a collection of romance novels. I guess I should have known, but I did not. I read part of the first story and when it became trashy, I was done.
