Midnight Confessions by Robyn Carr
I have been a fan of Ms. Carr’s writing for a while now. Her characters are all different and unique. She reinvents herself with each story. Although, I didn’t believe Sunny was the perfect name for the heroine, just because the heroine was a pessimist. Sunny started out as being too negative. But after meeting Drew things seem to turn around for her. It took Drew coming into Sunny’s life in order for her to heal and to get over being left at the altar. It also took Drew to prove to Sunny that there is that perfect someone for everyone. Overall it was a great story and one I would recommend for those who need a pick-me-up.
Midnight Surrender by Jean Brashear
Jean Brashear is definitely an author on my top twenty list…hey it’s hard to have top tens when it comes to authors. From the first moment I picked up a Brashear book I was caught. She has a unique voice, one completely different than most Harlequin authors, which is why I think makes her so unique. And oh, boy did she ever capture my heart with this story. Will, an Irish hunk (my weakness) is searching for the perfect woman and he finds her in Jordon. But Jordon isn’t your typical woman, she’s what some would call a “man-eater” she uses men and then pushes them away. Can Will finally convince Jordon that some things are just meant to be?
Midnight Assignment by Victoria Dahl
Victoria Dahl is a new author for me. And I have to say I can’t wait to read more from this author. When I realized that this book was set in a financial setting I almost set it to the side. Who wants to read something that is going to make you yawn and feel like you are in math class again? But I kept reading curious to see if Ms. Dahl could keep my attention. Was I ever blown away or what? The characters had wit, the setting became a little naughty fantasy for the reader. And the story kept developing with new twists and turns. It wasn’t the same boring office romance. This an author I want to tell everyone to watch out for.
If you're looking for a great book to read this holiday, and want something you can read in small bites, then pick up this well-written, romantic anthology. It fits the bill.
