Dear Avon Books, — Where are my heroes?

I am always torn when it comes to collections like this. They always feature characters that we have grown attached to in other full length books, but the treatments are so short that sometimes they seem very abrupt and involve too much telling and not enough showing. I think that is true in this case. How could we not want to read Ned Blydon's story? He has appeared in several of Quinn's books and is a wonderful character. His story is very much a Quinn story, all the elements are there, but it is too rushed and you can't help but feel that Ned got short-changed. The same is true of the other stories, by Kleypas and MacGregor/Kenyon. These are characters that readers care about, so their stories should not be abbreviated for the sake of a compilation. As a reader, I felt cheated.

All that being said, this is still one of the better compilations out there. If you loved any of these characters, you will want to know what happened to them and how they found happiness. But don't count on feeling particularly satisfied. Informed? yes. Content? no.

I only requested this book because of Lisa Kleypas and the fact that this is a continuance of Derek and Sara's story. I was not disappointed. Reading about Lydia Craven was the best 1/2 hour I ever had at reading a book.
