From Literary Times
The first of four stories about a Midsummer night is A Knight in Tarnished Armor by Jill Barnett. The lovely Lady Linnet of Ardenwood will do anything to avoid marrying the horrible Baron Warbrooke. She asks the mercenary William de Ros to escort her to a convent to escape her would-be husband. What Linnet doesn't know is that her grandfather has given Baron Warbrooke one week to woo Linnet and convince her to marry him. But Linnet is beginning to have feelings for William-- who has a secret of his own. In A Ribbon of Moonlight by Elaine Coffman, Quinn Scott, Marquess of Waverly, finds out he has become the guardian of a distant cousin's daughter. Assuming the girl is a child, he doesn't realize that the pretty woman he has been watching at a masquerade ball is the girl Catherine Flowers. When he discovers who she is, it is already too late-- he has kissed her. To Catherine, Quinn is everything she could want in a man. But he is trying to marry her off to avoid facing his feelings about her. Enchanted by Alexis Harrington is set in Oregon in 1875. Leah Whitman runs Whitman's Dry Goods, right next door to the gunsmith, Austin Ryder. Soon to be married, Leah isn't as taken in by Austin's good looks as the rest of the women in town. When a mysterious man named Professor Xavier Sortilege gives her an amulet that will bring her true love to her, Leah is skeptical. But when she begins to dream about Austin after he mistakenly kisses her, she begins to wonder. A legend about a pirate's treasure brings Nell Jolley and Sebastian Kane together in The Golden Mermaid by Sonia Simone. Nell thinks she has conjured up the pirate Despicable Jack when she first meets Sebastian on the beach in the Florida keys. But her father and Sebastian are searching for a gold statue, the Bathing Maenad. When her father is injured, Nell decides to stow away Sebastian's ship to make sure he doesn't keep the statue for himself. Sebastian is often frustrated and occasionally amused by the whirlwind Nell. She has been raised with unconventional beliefs and Sebastian finds himself wondering what life would be like with such a woman.Four captivating stories by four beloved authors! An enchanting anthology! Each story in Midsummer Night's Madness is special! A delightful collection that combines romance and fate! Pure magic! The authors have done a splendid job of weaving bewitching tales about a midsummer night and the power of love!Kristina Wright

Awards and honors
A Knight in Tarnished Armor:
For Chris,
and if he ever reads this he'll know why.
The Golden Mermaid:
My sincere thanks to Earl and John Crabb for their generous assistance in all matters nautical. Any errors that remain are entirely my own.—Sonia Simone
First words
A Knight in Tarnished Armor:
The sight of her took his breath away.
A Ribbon of Moonlight:
The ball was a bloody bore and Quinn Westcott, the Marquess of Waverly, felt like a fool, dressed as he was, in this ridiculous highwayman's costume.
"How in the world did we end up with all this lace?" Leah Whitman muttered to herself.
The Golden Mermaid:
If there was one thing practically guaranteed to raise a proper ghost, it was a bonfire at Midsummer's Night.
A Knight in Tarnished Armor:
O, what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?

I met a lady in the meads
Full beautiful, a fairy's child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.
La Belle Dame Sans Merci, John Keats
