The hunt was on, and three eligible young rakes were about to be caught . . .
Kasey Michaels was new to me. This will be the last of her books/stories, however, as it was rather one-dimensional peopled with over-drawn and unsympathetic characters in a plot that defied belief. Just for starters, it was never and is not now legal to get married in England on the spur of the moment, without banns or license and in an inn! What was the author thinking of here? Sadly, this effort was juvenile, unpolished and stretched credibility too far for me.
Lyn Stone is also new to me and, again, I won't be seeking out anything further from her either. Her contribution was boring, stilted, contained credulous dialogue and action and the characters had nothing to cause me to give them a second thought. I struggled to finish it.
Gayle Wilson has a certain speciality which her fans will recognise and most probably relish. She creates flawed, imperfect heros who, despite this, are strong alpha men who don't let a disability stand in their way; instead it becomes a positive attraction to them! However, this time in her contribution, she has created a hero who milks his flaw (scarred face) far beyond anything acceptable and thus his actions are really unbelievably silly. If he is meant to be strong and heroic, he certainly does not behave that way. Wilson's "My Darling Echo" contribution to the anthology "Bride by Arrangement" was so superior to this effort that it makes this one quite insipid. Sorry to be so negative about a writer I always enjoy but in all honesty, I don't understand why she allowed this one to get published.Read more ›
Good book for the beach. Quick and easy stories by known authors, no surprises, but likable characters and well known plots that work OK.
