Romance Anthology

Four authors show that it can be a VALENTINE ROMANCE at any time of year for those who enjoy love stories. First up is Angela Ford, whose tale SURRENDER starts off in suspenseful mode as a woman calls for police help, certain someone in her house is trying to kill her. Lauren Reynolds had married an importer, but his warehouse exploded, killing him, before their first anniversary. Now, just after the funeral, a narcotics agent has told her that her husband dabbled in illicit trade as well as legal. She doesn't want to believe Agent Donavan, but a hit has been ordered on her by rival gangs. Can she trust Donavan with her life?

There's a yummy recipe for chocolate glazed chocolate tart! This sounds like cheesecake consistency without cheese but with eggs, baked on a crumbled graham cracker crust.

LOVE POTION NUMBER TEN by Jennifer Conner introduces a lady called Everett, who has resorted to visiting a fortune teller for a love potion. How else can she make the guy she fancies notice her? Since her boss Felix doesn't drink coffee, she bakes the potion into some cookies for him to munch in the office. Her girl pal thinks she's nuts, but you never know until you try, do you? Meanwhile a guy called Royce, too shy to approach Everett, thinks Felix is a jerk who boasts about his conquests. Will the potion have unforeseen results in this fun tale?

VALENTINE PROMISE by Sharon Kleve brings a ghost to visit a girl called Corny in a dream. Her late boss tells her that his much younger bride had used a narcotic drug to make it appear that he had a heart attack. Can Corny get her jailed? Corny doesn't deny having a psychic ability, but she's a pet detective. Who would believe her? Even her boyfriend Steve - secretly planning to propose on Valentine's Day - thinks Corny is away with the fairies.

JUST IN TIME VALENTINE by Natalie Nicole Bates follows two people who communicate by drawing a heart on the train window condensation, then names in the following days. Anissa isn't gong to keep making this journey though - the hospital where she works is shedding jobs. Should she make some move before she and Gabriel miss each other forever? Or is the mystery man nothing but a harmless fantasy?

With the four quite different stories and a recipe this collection is a great value set for fans of adult romance. If you enjoy the authors you can find more about them and their works at the back. VALENTINE ROMANCE is a well- wrapped romance package for any time of year.
