From a shape-shifting leopardess who wants a packmate to be her soulmate to a snowstorm that brings a surprise gift, these all-new tales by Maggie Shayne, Erin McCarthy, Nalini Singh, and Jean Johnson will stir your spirit in all the right places.Beat of Temptation by Nalini SinghYoung Tamsyn has always held a special place in her heart for her powerful fellow pack-member Nate. But as a dominant male leopard in the pack, the more experienced Nate doesn’t want to trap Tamsyn into the fierce demands of the mating bond—a bond driven by the animal within—when she’s hardly had the chance to grow into a woman. But Tamsyn knows what she wants for Christmas, and she’s going to get it…I wanted to read this book for this story, Tamsyn and Nate. They found out about the bond early on, but he was 10 years older, and he stayed away from her. He wanted her to live and she was just too young. But Tamsyn has reached her limit in this one and wants him bad. She will do anything to get him. It was the bes story out of the 4, and I liked to see Tamsyn try to get him.Melting Frosty by Maggie ShayneAbout two people, one hating Christmas, one loving Christmas, stuck in a house together, and slowly feeling the passion build up. An ok read.Erin McarthyI read a story by her in my other xmas anthology and this one starts it all, witch sisters finding love. This first one is about a boy and a girl who has been friends forever, and secretly loved each other too. But this time it's time for them to get a push and just get together. Sweet story, I do like when friends fall in love.Jean JohnsonSteve Bethel and his fiancée Rachel could use a few miracles right about now; the family bed-and-breakfast is mortgaged to the hilt, the biggest blizzard in half a century is ruining the shortest day of the year, the local bank manager is a stickler for bills being paid on time, and their guests are canceling right and left. But when three strangers show up at what seems like the darkest hour, looking for a place to stay for the holidays, the simple gifts of peace, knowledge, and comfort seem to be just the miracles they need.Hm, this one was ok, but the together with Melting Frosty it shares place 3 out of these stories. It was just so sweet and hopeful, I mean that is good, but a bit too corny for me at the time.Blodeuedd's Cover Corner.
