      The best Signet anthology I ever bought -- hands down!And that's really only based on two stories, KIDNAPPED FOR CHRISTMAS by Betina Krahn and THE BLACK BEAST OF BELLETERRE by Mary Jo Putney. Either one of those stories would have been worth the purchase price of the whole book. KIDNAPPED is a warm, funny, almost zany story about a lovely blonde school teacher, a no-good London millionaire, and his irresistable daughter. Even though she's lost a step on the base paths, in those days (twenty year [...]

      Worth it for the Mary Jo Putney story, "Black Beast of Belleterre" an obvious retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story.

      A collection of five holiday stories, each set in Victorian England or America, by Patricia Gaffney, Edith Layton, Patricia Rice, Bettina Krahn, and Mary Jo Putney, reflects the old-fashioned charm of this popular era. Edith Layton - Bird of ParadiseA young woman works to support herself and her small brother who gets in trouble when he tries to sell the turkey she got as a Christmas bonus. They are helped by a young man who is very attracted to her. I think the characters lacked some interest a [...]

      First of all, I don't know where the name Salvatore Raimondo comes from, I don't see it anywhere between the covers of this book. *shrug*Now to the reviews. I liked the first story, "The Bird of Paradise". It was a sweet little story with humor coming in the form of a very large plucked turkey that gets dragged from pillar to post yet still remains fresh for Christmas dinner."Christmas Angel" was all right, though kind of depressing, what with the search for a lost boy.Thumbs down on "Second Cha [...]

      As with most anthologies, there were some good stories and some bad. In this case, despite a rather weak beginning, the anthology definitely picked up in the end, with lovely stories by Betina Krahn and Mary Jo Putney.The Bird of Paradise by Edith LaytonI felt like I was missing part of the story. Things happened without sufficient explanation. And I didn't really feel any connection between the characters. It seemed as if the hero basically bullied the heroine into a betrothal after stalking he [...]

      Rating for Mary Jo Putney`s Beast of Belleterre For B&Beast maniacs it`s a true gem. Oh I loved it even if it`s love on first sight for a beastly hero(36) who sees pretty and young girl and is enchanted. But I am enchanted with the story with his nobleness, rose petals over her, a sketch that he framed,sheltered animals,loyal servants,how he lets her leave a bit disappointed in the revelation of his injuries,though it`s probably hard for a child a grown men hiding in a hooded mantel because [...]

      THE BIRD OF PARADISE by Edith Layton 2*s for 'OK'. The 'bird' is actually a turkey that brings two young people together. At 51 pages it is very short and feels rushedRISTMAS ANGEL by Patricia Rice 4*s A pleasant story of two young people who lost those that they loved only to find each other while helping assist the townspeople. SECOND CHANCE by Patricia Gaffney 1* Man returns after years of being away. The woman he loves is suppose to marry someone else. I found this story hard to believe. KID [...]

      I picked this anthology (a format I am usually not very fond of) as I found it at the thriftshop and I really wanted to read something from Patricia Gaffney for already a while. Putney and Layton seemed like bonuses.The Bird of Paradise – Edith Layton2 stars – Not very enthralling to read. No character was really appealing, neither was the story. It felt rushed and fakeChristmas Angel – Patricia Rice1.5 stars – A plot around a big misunderstanding and hiding of his own identity, very qui [...]

      I picked this one up for the fifth title on the roster, Mary Jo Putney's Black Beast of Belleterre, because it's a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, my favorite fairy tale. I was not disappointed; I'm sure I'll be rereading that one. I give it 4.5 stars.My ratings for the other entries:The Bird of Paradise by Edith Layton, 4 starsA Christmas Angel by Patricia Rice, 1 starA Second Chance by Patricia Gaffney, 2 starsKidnapped For Christmas by Bettina Krahn, 3 stars

      The fifth book I've abandoned this week as not worth the effort of trying to finish.

      Absolutely delightful. Well written, witty dialogs, romantic holiday reads. A true treasure.

    12. Laura on said:

      The last two stories were the best with the 5th being my favorite.

      They were all good, but my favorite was the last one; a take off of beauty and the beast
