Gifted a book by one of the authors of this wonderful anthology I spent a few days reading learning about what the Christmas Season “down under” might be like. I learned new terminology, met hunky men who steamed up my reading glasses, met women that were strong but open to the idea of love, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of reading each and every one of the stories in this collection.

Treats to Tempt You by Serenity Woods
Skye and Owen meet on a plane and feel a spark that was not acted upon until they meet again by chance at a street fair. Owen and his dog, Mozart, work in the Far North of New Zealand and are in charge of the rescue service in the area. Skye has baggage to get through before she and Owen can have their happily ever after. I have to say that Owen is one of the men in this anthology that was choice. He knew how to treat a woman and was so very real and wonderful that he put a smile on my face just as often as he put one on Skye’s. Great story!

Christmas with the Boss by Annie Seaton
Jilly is off to have a much needed holiday vacation at the beach only to find that her hunky boss, Dominic, is staying in the neighboring house. He is very surprised to find out she is staying where she is and she eventually finds out that the house might be more than she bargained for. Work place romances are frowned on by both of them but what about when one is on holiday? This is a fun story with an interesting paranormal twist.

Christmas Holiday Hearts by Kris Pearson
This second chance at love story brings together Tony and Ellie. They met several years before on a holiday in Sydney and never expected to see one another again but they never forgot one another. Ellie, unknowingly, is hired to tutor Tony’s daughter over the school holiday and thus begins a tumultuous, sizzling, conflicted relationship that has secrets that need to be shared, danger to deal with and trust to be found.

Just for Now by Rosalind James
Jenna, an American, came to New Zealand as the wife of Jeremy. One day her dreams are abruptly shattered and she finds herself taking a year or so off to determine what she will do next. She eventually finds herself nanny to Finn’s children and so the story begins. Finn plays rugby for the All Blacks and this story helped me to understand more about rugby than I knew before. Having read one other book in this series it was fun to see some of the characters again. Finn is a rugged, determined and wonderfu guy – Jenna is delightful, knowledgeable and great with kids. I really enjoyed this one, too!

Promising Penny by Joanne Hill
Michael has always been like another brother to Penny – or so it has seemed to Michael. In this story Michael and Penny begin to explore the idea that perhaps Michael can be more than a brother figure in Penny’s life. Penny has goals and dreams for her future and hopes to fulfill them. This was an interesting story about loss, love, friends, family, empowerment and so much more.

Hide Your Heart by Tracey Alvarez
I have read and loved every one of Tracey Alvarez’s books! This is a story of what is truly important in life - love. Lauren has had bad experiences but has a loving son, Rottweiler and family to support her. Nathan has been all over the world but never really felt he could have roots and a family. Drew’s project threatens Lauren’s security but she is drawn to him anyway. As their relationship progresses they have many obstacles to overcome and much sharing to do before they can have their happily ever after.

Great stories, great writing, and a great anthology – I highly recommend it! ( )
