12 Days of Christmas Review: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS by Sophie Barnes, Karen Erickson, Rena Gregory, Sandra Jones, and Vivienne Lorret

About the book:

The holidays are a time for wishes, magic and, of course, love. Celebrate the season with this delightful collection of Christmas tales. 

What better way for Connor Talbot, Earl of Redfirn, to spend the holidays than convincing Leonora Compton that the only match she needs to make is with him!

The Duke of Ashton has had three years to plan for his perfect Christmas present—the Lady Eleanor Fitzsimmons as his wife. Now, all he has to do is convince the reluctant lady …

Phin Baldwin does not believe in Christmas magic … until the clever and beautiful Ginny Overton gets it into her head to show him how wonderful it can be when wishes come true.

Just returned from the Crusades, marriage is the last thing on Sir Caerwyn’s mind. But will he be able to resist Lady Nia, the thief of his boyhood heart, when she tempts him yet again?

Responsible Ethan Weatherstone is determined to save Penelope Rutledge—and her reputation—from her silly scheme, but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips?

I really enjoyed this anthology. Each story is a quick read and full of romance. The stories are full of hope, love, and the magic of the holiday season. I really liked that each story is different. They take place in different times and have different kinds of heroes and heroines. I didn’t feel like I was reading the same story over and over like I sometimes do with other anthologies. I believe this would be the perfect book to read in the week leading up to Christmas. Each story can be read in one sitting and would provide the perfect escape from the holiday craziness. Plus, at $0.99 for Kindle and Nook FIVE GOLDEN RINGS isn’t going to break the holiday budget!!

    While I normally don’t read many antholgies this sounds like a good fast read just before Christmas, like you said.

    This sounds like a fabulous read. Love anthologies, when you don’t have a lot of time to read.
