Four best-­selling romance novelists bring tales of feisty heroines, stubborn heroes, and unlikely love in the Wild West. Get lost in FOUR WEDDINGS AND A KISS today.

"Spitfire Sweetheart" by Mary Connealy
Maizy MacGregor is an unruly tomboy. When she causes an accident, injuring neighbor Rylan Carstens, she becomes his unlikely caregiver. Rylan has never noticed how pretty his infuriating neighbor is, and he never expected to fall in love. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Maizy and Rylan. I didn't like his judgmental attitude so much, but most men back then did have preconceived ideas about women and what they could and couldn't do. I was glad Maizy could stand her ground and give as good as she got. 

"Love Letter to the Editor" by Robin Lee Hatcher
Molly Everton is the outspoken daughter of the town newspaper's owner. When her father brings in an outsider to be editor, she tries to drive him out of town. But Jack Ludgrove is not intimidated. He's resolved to change Molly's mind about him--as an editor and as a man. Molly is an old maid and has spurned several suitors in town. Her father needs a new editor and she hoped for the job, but her father told her she was too offensive, but not why. Jack wants an adventure and a strong-willed woman is amusing to him. He enjoys teasing her...  It was fun watching this romance develop. 

"A Cowboy for Katie" by Debra Clopton
Katie Pearl is uninterested in men and love. But she needs help on her ranch and hires Treb Rayburn, a wandering cowboy looking to make a buck. Will Treb change Katie's mind? As far as I know A COWBOY FOR KATIE is Ms. Clopton's first historical. I love her contemporary cowboy stories she's written for Love Inspired, and am so happy to see her have a spot in this novella collection with this wonderful group of historical/western/cowboy writers. I enjoyed getting to know Katie, and Treb is just a plain sweetheart. I couldn't help but fall in love with him. This was a great story. 

"Courting Trouble" by Margaret Brownley
Grace Davenport is either the unluckiest woman alive--or a killer. When her third husband is found dead, Grace is arrested. Attorney Brock Daniels isn't interested in the case--until he meets Grace. Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace. Courting Trouble was totally different than anything I've read before.  It is innovative, fresh, unique storytelling at it's best. Grace starts the story out in jail, and Brock doesn't want anything to do with criminal law. Plus he's a city-slicker in a town full of drunks. What hope do the two of them have in proving Grace's innocence when everyone believes she is guilty? 

FOUR WEDDINGS AND A KISS is written by some of my favorite historical and cowboy writers. Mary, Margaret, Debra and Robin.  All four have strong feisty heroines and a quick story line that will draw you in and keep you hooked from the beginning to end. Not heavy reads, and with four stories in one book, it’s easy to read one, set the book down to do something and come back and read another. 

I love that Thomas Nelson and Revell have started doing anthologies. I hope to see more of them in the future. These are great summer time reads – great for vacation, or lazy days at the pool. Don’t miss FOUR WEDDINGS AND A KISS. 400 pages. $15.99
