    "Great fun"

    This is an interesting way to get to know 4 different romance authors, seeing how they each approach the same basic plot vehicle (picked out of a large number of entries as part of a competition) and take it in different directions. The result isn't great literature (and I was a bit disappointed that Mary Balogh reprised the plot of one of her other novels, albeit one I'm fond of) but it's very enjoyable. 3.5 stars would probably be more accurate than 4, but it's not an option on here.

    The reader Simon Prebble (pretty good) actually alternates with Anne Flosnik, who is not one of my favourite readers, having a rather artificial, formulaic style of reading. But the stories were interesting enough that I managed to stop being irritated by her. Looking forward to the companion novel, It Happened One Night, finding its way onto Audible.

    "Another great one, but..."

    I loved this book, except for one thing...I took off one star for the female narrator. They should have let Simon Prebble read the whole thing instead of only 2 of the 4 stories, because (in my opinion) the woman who read the other two did a horrible job. You could hardly tell one character from another, and she over-acted everything. If you can get past that, you will enjoy it too.

    "Stories - Excellent / Narration - Halfway There"

    I love the premise of this collection, and for the most part it is well executed. The individual works are characteristic of the the four writers, and if you are familiar with and like them already, you will enjoy this. Simon Prebble did a nice job of narration as well. However, he only narrated two of the stories. The other two narrations were much less enjoyable. For some reason, the woman who narrated the Mary Balogh story said the word "lover" as if she was taking part in a Saturday Night Live sketch. It was distracting, annoying, and unnecessary. I took off a star for this.

    "Loved It!"

    I was very happy with this purchase! I own everything Stephanie Laurens and Mary Balogh have written so I knew I would love their stories. Was surprised and pleased with the other two authors and will look into purchasing some of their books. All the stories flowed very well and were very entertaining. I really liked finding out what 4 different authors did with the same set of circumstances. It was very enjoyable and a very easy listen. ENJOY!

    "Variety of Stories with the Same Theme!"

    All talented authors, but I liked the second story, by Mary Balogh, the best. The stories were enhances by the performances of both Simon Prebble and Anne Flosnik.

    THE THEME: A handsome hero returns from war, battle-scarred and world-weary. But family duty calls and he must find a bride.

    A young lady facing yet another season without a suitor never expects to find herself the object of his affections.
