Présentation de l'éditeur

A land of legend and wild beauty - of clans, lairds, honour, and passion - Scotland forever stirs the soul of romance. Now, in one incomparable volume, four of Avon Romance′s bestselling authors present stirring tales of hearts won and weddings to be, featuring a quartet of unforgettable heroines about to discover the rapture of love in a world as untamed as the men they will one day marry

Biographie de l'auteur

New York Times bestselling author CHRISTINA DODD builds worlds filled with suspense, romance, and adventure, and creates the most distinctive characters in fiction today. Her fifty novels have been translated into twenty-five languages, featured by Doubleday Book Club, recorded on Books on Tape for the Blind, won Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart and RITA Awards, and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle.

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens began writing as an escape from the dry world of professional science, a hobby that quickly became a career. Her novels set in Regency England have captivated readers around the globe, making her one of the romance world's most beloved and popular authors. Loving Rose is her fifty-fourth book. All of her previous works remain in print and readily available.

Julia Quinn started writing her first book one month after finishing college and has been tapping away at her keyboard ever since.

The New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four novels for Avon Books, she is a graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and is one of only fifteen authors ever to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.

Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.

Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

Fun Historical Read That Evokes the Grandeur of Scotland 21 octobre 2003
Par Trisha A. Howell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Scottish Brides, an anthology featuring mostly Regency era novellas that take place in Scotland, is a fun read though not spectacular.
Under The Kilt, by Christina Dodd, does a good job of painting two likeable and lusty characters in just 62 pages. Handsome amateur historian Hadden returns to the crumbling castle of Andra MacNachtan, the last of Clan MacNachtan, to again confront the beauty who stole his heart. He ostensibly wants to interview her about the clan's marriage kilt, but the encounter takes a surprise turn that proud and independent Andra never anticipated. This is an enjoyable romp with lots of fire between two absorbing characters.
Rose In Bloom, by Stephanie Laurens, has well-developed main characters and an interesting story, but it fails to satisfy. With Laurens' work I can never quite get into the characters. They somehow come off as an excuse to display as much eroticism as possible rather than seeming real and letting the eroticism grow out of who they are. This novella presents us with Duncan, a young perfectionist earl who's worked very hard the past ten years in the investment world to enable his gorgeous ancestral home to once again prosper. Now he's hosting a Midsummer party to court his visiting prospective bride. But he doesn't count on the presence of Rose, his companion and nemesis from his younger days, who now drives him wild with desire and who, like Duncan, is about to make a loveless match. Laurens emphasizes the fireworks between them.
As usual, Julia Quinn is superb in Gretna Greene, a spirited tale about Margaret Pennypacker, an English woman who rushes to Gretna Greene to prevent her brother from eloping, and a burly Scot, Angus Greene, who saves her from disaster. These warm, sympathetic and fun-loving characters are a joy to watch as they fall in love.
Finally, Karen Ranney creates a beautiful and adventuresome tale in The Glenlyon Bride, a Cinderella-like story that dazzles the reader. More than any of the other stories, this one captures the beauty and the magic that is Scotland. Nearly penniless Lachlan, laird of the Sinclairs, reluctantly agrees to a loveless match with a wealthy English harpy in order to save his clan. But when he meets the woman he nicknames Ealasaid and assumes is his bride-to-be on the grounds of her estate, he is pleasantly surprised at her refreshing wildness and goodness. Together they embark on a series of delightful adventures that culminate in their falling in love and consummating their union. But Ealasaid is actually the proud Scottish-born servant to the harpy, and she thinks Lachlan is a mere castle rustler who works for the laird she knows her venomous mistress will marry. When the truth comes out, a fun twist allows the couple to overcome not only the situation that is tearing them apart but also to solve Lachlan's financial dilemma.
Scottish Brides is an enjoyable read for lovers of Scotland and of historical romance.

Beautiful - A Joy to Read 22 juin 2000
Par Cat Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I can't understand why anyone would not instantly fall in love with the four stories in this book. It's the best collection of short stories I have ever read. Each story was beautiful -- full of emotion, love and exciting endings. I hope these authors make another short story book. I will be first in line to get it.
I used to prefer long novels to short stories, but this book has convinced me of the pleasure of a good short story. Get it.

A wonderful anthology! 10 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Anthologies are usually a mixed bag, but this is good.
Christina Dodd's "Under The Kilt" is sexy, sensuous, and funny. It works despite its short length and is a worthy story of Hadden Fairchild.
Stephanie Laurens' "Rose In Bloom" is sexy and funny, but its slow pace and stereotypical heroine hampers my enjoyment somewhat. Still, a good read.
Julia Quinn's "Gretna Greene" is a light, humourous story that works despite its sometimes too-modern language. It has me laughing out loud here and there.
Karen Ranney's "Bride of Glenlyon" is my favorite - it's poignant and lovely despite its short length. It's a lovely story of moonlight courtship that had me smiling and sighing at the thought of how wonderful love can be.
This is a wonderful book. Enjoy!

Finally, a minor miracle (at least for me). 21 novembre 2006
Par J. Lesley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I am so very glad to say that miracles (even minor ones) do still happen. This is an anthology (usually to be approached with extreme caution by me, yet I continue to buy them) which actually has four, yes, count them, four GOOD stories. I almost didn't buy the book because of the diverse range of ratings from other readers but I am wholeheartedly glad I went ahead and got it. The plots of the four stories are very well described in other reviews so I will just say that I acutally enjoyed all four of these stories. No one stood out more than another but I also did not find one to be significantly weaker than the others.

Maybe the reasons some reviewers saw these stories in a negative way are the same reasons I liked them very much. They are all very simple love stories, relatively uncomplicated, containing very few secondary characters. Because of the brevity, the characters must deal with each other and their situations and not allow THE BIG MISUNDERSTANDING to take up page after page after page of unproductive activity. They are sweet and even innocent (even though each has a liberal sprinkling of sensual moments).

I found all four stories entirely to my liking. I know that the book was published in 1999 and literary styles have changed but not all those changes suit all readers. I, for one, still enjoy a good, old fashioned love story.

EXCELLENT BOOK!!!!! 9 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I had never read any of the four authors in this book. However, I will now! All four stories are well written. It's just too bad they could not have been longer. A must buy for all the Scotland Romance lovers.
