About the book:

Hearts EntwinedFour Historical Romance Novellas of Love (With a Twist of Humor)
The ways of love can be complex. Sometimes a relationship full of unexpected twists and unlikely turns leads to a bond that's strong and secure. Join Karen Witemeyer, Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings, and Melissa Jagears for novellas that follow the winding path of romance in stories that celebrate a love that lasts forever.

The Love KnotWhen Claire Nevin's troubled younger sibling sends her an unexpected package by rail, the gift and the man who delivers it--an unexpected face from the past--threaten to upend Claire's life forever. Fighting to hold on to all she has built, will she lose what matters most?

The Tangled Ties That BindConnor Kincaid returns home determined to win the hand of the woman he was too young for when he left. But Maggie is training to be a doctor in a distant town, while Connor's about to settle on a ranch. Will either be willing to give up their dream? Or will they both have to give up the love of a lifetime?

Bound and DeterminedAs punishment for his recklessness, Private Bradley Willis is sent on an errand to help a retired cavalry officer move a herd across Indian Territory. No one told him the herd would be camels instead of cattle, nor that the officer's headstrong daughter, Ambrosia Herald, would seem to be trying to undermine the whole enterprise. He's definitely been saddled with more than he's bargained for.

Tied and TrueWealthy Marianne Lister is in love with business assistant Calvin Hochstetler, but he can't see past the difference in their social status. When Marianne takes a job to prove that she is prepared for a life of hard work alongside the man of her dreams, will it be enough to convince Calvin to risk it all for love?

My review:

These were all wonderful stories by very talented writers!  They also were all a part of a different series each author has but they worked just fine as stand-alone's because I'm not caught up on each of these series' and I didn't have any trouble enjoying them! There was variety to the type of love stories here, some being couples who knew each other some time ago, one set were friends and one just met.  A couple of the stories were quite a bit more humorous than the others and all had a good amount of action.  All of the main characters seemed to be Christians, with some being more outspoken about their faith, praying for help and comfort.  There were a lot of cute romantic moments!  I liked how some of the characters really sacrificed for each other and put each other first.  The history was interesting, such as learning about the different social classes and what life would have been like for a woman doctor.  I loved the independence of these women!  They were all strong and determined to make it in a man's world.  Women are truly blessed to live in this time, especially if you live in the USA, Great Britain, etc, and to have the opportunities we have now.  I highly recommend this book!

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
