My review: 

This is a wonderful collection of sweet romances with a little bit of everything, from the old west to modern day, ranching to computers, small towns to edge-of-your-seat suspense!  Some of the stories have a little bit of a faith element while others have a strong one.  For being short stories, they were well-written and fleshed out nicely.  I loved the romantic elements and some stories were also more romantic than others, but all clean.  The Tronstad story was unique in that it's completely from the male perspective, which I haven't seen very often in romantic fiction.  I've read almost all of one author's books and had heard of a few others and I will definitely be looking for more of all of their books in the future.  Don't miss out on this great collection!

I received a free kindle copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
