While Valentine’s Day is not here, the nine stories in this book like the spirit of the holiday can easily warm the cockles of your heart at any time of the year.

Being a child of the 1950’s I can easily remember, like some if not most of most of you are reading this, those small red square boxes with the heart-shaped window, loaded with those sweet multi-colored heart-shaped candy with sayings only a young girl would understand; candy which the boys would frown about eating.

Each of these nine stories, like shaking of one those candies into your hand, don’t have to read in any particular order. So, write the nine titles on pieces of paper, put them in a small paper bag, and pick out one at a time just like you did with those candies. However, before you begin reading the story you’ve selected; close your eyes, and envision an imagine of what the message on the paper means to you today as an adult; because each of those pieces of paper is a major underlining component for the storyline.

While some of you might not have had any difficulty in finding your one and only, the rest of you did, and became desperate enough like in “Fiddler on the Roof” when Tevye and Golde’s daughters sing about a matchmaker choosing a partner for them.

With stories from contemporary and historical romances, set in different time periods and locations you’ll find yourselves having a hard time not feeling the emotions felt by the two main characters as you fantasize being in the shoes of the female protagonists in these stories, the way I did. I could have easily downloaded this collection via KINDLE Unlimited, but I chose to buy a copy instead; I’m glad I did and it’s why I’ve decided to give this collection and its authors 5 STARS.
