Descriptions from Amazon:
A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION by Madeline Hunter
Caroline Dunham has a bone to pick with notorious rake Baron Thornhill—and a creative plan to insure his undivided attention. Yet once in close quarters, she finds herself beholden to their smoldering connection . .

Deet’s review: He was on his way to his brother’s estate for Christmas and to secure a wealthy wife . Caroline kidnapped him and took him to her crumbling estate because …well, let’s just say she had a reason. But that reason did not include her falling for the handsome baron.

This novella is Madeline Hunter at her best; terrific development of characters and a unique plot. I loved this story. My Rating:5 Christmasy feeling: 4.5
A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries
Whisked away from a wintry ball by the officer she knew only through letters, Cassandra Isles struggles with her feelings for the commanding Colonel Lord Heywood. For he, secretly a fortune-hunter, must marry for money to save his estate—and Cass, secretly an heiress, will accept nothing less than
love . . .

Deet’s review: Melodramatic, but delightfully so. Deliciously sexy. Splendidly entertaining. Everything I expect from Sabrina Jeffries. My Rating:5 Christmasy Feeling: 5

ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney
Dressed as a veiled princess, Lady Diana Lawrence is shocked to discover that the mysterious corsair who tempts her away from the costume ball is the duke she once loved and lost. Now snowed in with Castleton at a remote lodge, will she surrender to the passion still burning hotly between them?

Deet’s Review: Mary Jo Putney’s story is an offering of a second chance love story. The hero and heroine were torn apart by his wicked father. She left for the continent and India and has returned seven years later. They accidentally meet again at a ball, Diana, and her cousin Rory, are a bit scandalous in their dancing but it does attract Anthony’s attention. They are at a masquerade, he a pirate and she an Indian dancer. They find their attraction to each other to be still strong. But can the Duke convince Diana that they have a future?

Here is one of those book boyfriends to swoon over; tortured past, heartbroken over Diana’s refusal to marry him seven years ago, determined to sway her to love him again. Sigh…..
So romantic!!
Deet’s Rating: 5 Christmasy Feeling: 5
I’m so used to having at least one “bad” novella in an anthology that it blew me away with this anthology having three five star stories! There are three abductions in this book; two are human and one is feline. You really can’t go wrong with this anthology.
