4 cute winter tales. I had read Kinley MacGregor before and her stuff is always good. The Lori Foster story was really good, probably the best in the book & I'll be looking for other stuff by her. The other 2 authors were new to me as well & I look forward to reading stuff from them again.
I wanted very much to like this book, but just couldn't. The premise of a female dominant society sounded interesting and different. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get past the writing style. The sentences were short and choppy. I had a difficult time figuring out what characters were saying what and couldn't keep the characters names straight (not usually a problem for me). It felt like I was reading a novel in another language and just getting every fifth word. I was confused and eventually just gave up. It's very rare that I don't finish a book once I start it and I didn't even make it half way through this one. Overall, it reminded me of the way I used to feel when trying to slog through a college text book; that it was work not pleasure.
Anthology of 3 stories. I usually love Kenyon, but did not like her story here: BAD to the Bone- a tale of a woman who wins a fantasy island contest and ends kidnapped by a secret agent on leave. The other two stories were much better. Liz Carlyle's Let's Talk about Sex- a radio talk show sex therapist has a hot affair with her neighbor. Nicole Camden's The Nekkid Truth- after an accident a woman can no longer recognize faces.
Leander decides to marry the "Weeping Widow" so he will not have to worry about a wife that will fall helplessly in love with him; unfortunately he falls in love with her. Very cute story, I highly reccommend for fans of regency romance. 3rd in Beverley's Company of Rogues series.
Briefly, the story involved a mind-reading waitress who becomes involved with a vampire in the midst of a murder spree in her small Southern town. The story was funny while still being interesting, the best part were the quirky characters. I would call it a good light read.
