I'd say 2 were worth reading and 2 were not. I liked Brenda Joyce's story, the longest in the book. It started rather ho-hum, but I soon became very interested in the characters. It was unusual to have an unrepentant thief as the hero, and I continually asked myself how the author was going to come through with the recquisite happy ending. The pleasant surprise at the end was well worth the read, and the hero & heroine are both striking. The story best supports the "Scandalous Weddings" title. I didn't expect to like it, but it definitely grew on me.
Rexanne Becnel's entry also supports the uniting theme well and is a fun late Rengency romp. The hero is excellent and there are enough laughs to keep it fun. This one too gets high marks. Her curses cracked me up, and the role reversal at the end is delightful.
The last 2 stories, I found dull and dreary. Jones' story featured vague, stereotypical characters with little charisma, a cliched and utterly predictable plot, and a healthy dose of unbelieveability. Not very scandalous either. I can't even give it one star.
Smith's attempt is a poor execution of Beauty & the Beast. The hero is mildly intereesting, but is close to emotionally abusive to her. He trusts her not at all. The heroine has little common sense. Heavens, she just throws herself into a stranger's bed! The plot is only slightly less predictable than Jones' and ends on an unbelieveable and completely sudden note as though the author decided she'd written enough and just ended it as quickly as possible with no thought to the continuity of plot or characterization.
My recommendation: Read the first two and skip the last two.

The Rexanne Becnel story, LOVE MATCH, is the best of the four. The hero's sister elopes with the heroine's brother. Nice, quick read, good development of the characters.
BEAUTY AND THE BRUTE by Barbara D. Smith was the next best, but I felt the story went on too long and the heroine had the patience of a saint. A WEDDIN' OR A HANGIN' by Jill Jones was marginal because I felt that the feuding between the clans wasn't believeable. I did not like Brenda Joyce's story, IN THE LIGHT OF DAY, at all.
