Even those these are short stories, t seems to me that any of these would make a wonderful full length book on their own!

Four stories of time travel by different writers in one book. It gave me a chance to sample new writers. I liked Lynn Kurland the best. And I have already requested another of her books.

This was an OK book, the stories were a bit on the boring side. Lynn Kurland is the best author of the bunch, but I feel she wastes her talent on the shorter stories.

These are four separate stories of four women who happen to find the men of their dreams, but in another time. Four romantic stories. I enjoyed all of them....read in just one day.

There are 4 time travel romance novellas in this anthology, and the only one worth keeping is Lynn Kurland's "And the Groom Wore Tulle", Ian MacLeod's story. While this is not her best, having the flavor of a story quickly penned to meet a deadline, it still fills in another hole in her tapestry where all the characters are interwoven or at least touch each other somehow. However she could have done without one outrageously contrived scene which was obviously added purely as a vehicle for a semi-dramatic proposal.

Maggie Shayne's "The Con and the Crusader", while trite and bordering on corny in places, is at least readable. Angie Ray's "A Bride Most Common" has an interesting premise but falls short on delivery and had many irritating flaws in the heroine's attitude and ignorace of 18th century women's place in society. Ingrid Weaver's "Conyn's Bride" is a piece of junk and I skimmed through most of it. I toyed with giving this 2 stars, but in deference to Kurland the book gets 3.
