Other authors: See the other authors section. Set at the time of the battle of Waterloo and with some really interesting historical insights (particularly with regard to the running of a ducal household and the family's interaction with their servants), the story of an arrangemed marriage turning into a love match is one that works in any era. I wasn't entirely sure when the love arrived between them - it wasn't entirely clear - and the Marquess wasn't always a sympathetic character (violence towards his wife, even in extenuating circumstances, isn't very heroic).

I bought this book for the Jo Beverley story, having read all the books in her Malloren series. I'd never heard o the other three authors, but I was willing to give them a try.

I have to say that I was a bit disappointed by the first story, Jo Beverley's "Forbidden Affection." The premise was interesting enough: young heroine is addicted to Gothic novels, particularly those written by a specific author. Heroine's family comes to London for her older sister's Season and learns that:1 - they have rented the late author's town house, 2 - the author was murdered in the house next door, and 3 - the owner of the house, suspected of the murder, has been abroad for 10 years. The heroine finds a secret passageway connecting the two homes, and the story takes off. I like Beverly's writing style and did like the heroine, but I could not get over the fact that the girl was 16 and the hero was 30. It just seemed bizzare to me. And a bit icky. My grade: C+

"The Pleasure of a Younger Lover" by Vanessa Kelly was a pleasant surprise. Like the first story, there is an age difference between the hero and heroine, but she is 32 and he is 28, so it was a bit more believable. The hero has loved the heroine for years, having grown up in a neighboring estate. But has to overcome her insecurities and self-doubt, plus help her clear her late husband's name, before he can win her. I liked Kelly's writing style, and I found both characters to be very believable and quite likeable. I'd like to read more of her work. My grade: A

"The Naked Prince" by Sally MacKenzie was a surprise. I didn't think I'd like it, since the language and actions didn't seem authentic to the time period (Regency, although it isn't specified). But the story of how the two lead characters end up working together to prevent the hero's friend from a disasterous marriage, added to the very obvious intellectual compatiblity between the hero and heroine made this an enjoyable read. I think MacKenzie stretched the bounds of believabilty by having her prudish spinster stick around for an entire orgy weekend, but I was willing to suspend disbelief. My grade: B

The same cannot be said for the final story in the anthology, "A Summer Love Affair" by Kaitlin O'Riley. This is the classic example of someone writing a 20th Century story set in the 19th Century. Remember, the 1880s were a time where Victorian women were so modest that they covered up the legs of their pianos, for goodness sake. Yet in O'Riley's interpretation of this era, within 24 hours of meeting the hunky, half-dressed British hero during her visit to Spain, the sheltered English ingenue finds herself posing virtually nude with him for a painting. That ridiculous scene, combined with a very stilted writing style, made this story virtually unreadable for me. My grade: D-

Another reviewer gave the synopsis of the stories, so I"ll just put in my opinion.

Jo Beverly - love her stories. This one had a very interesting story & good dialogue. I know that in the 1880s a romance/marriage between an 16 year old & a 30 year old man may have "raised a few eyebrows". However, in 2011 it can get you a prison sentence. I just couldn't get by it unless I mentally raised her age a couple of years. Sorry, Jo. I guess it's my problem. I still give it 3 stars.

Vanessa Kelly's story - very predictable & inane. I could have written the story myself. Yawn. 2 stars.

Sally MacKenzie's "Naked Prince" - I liked the dialogue, but the story would have been more believable if it were set in a later time period. I wish authors would pay more attention to say 1910 or 1920. I just couldn't believe the heroine would have sex with basically a stranger she meets at a party (orgy?). I think this particular character would have left right away. 3stars only because it was witty & well written.

Kaitlin O'Reilly - I agree with a previous reviewer who also thought the main female character wasn't acting true to her time period. Again, I would believe it if it was 1920 , 1950. I also tried not to hold it against the hero & heroine that I had to read several times how good looking they were. It was well written though, so 3 stars.

I came by this book in a search for books that I haven’t read by Jo Beverly. Instead I got four great books. I would recommend any one of the four for a good quick read.

I give Jo Beverley 5 stars for daring to try something different, as in the typical romance the hero would have waited two years to come to her. As it was, although far fetched, I found this story to be more touching than the usual romance (and many of them are) so in a sense the age difference played a role in the story, was part of the point.

The other stories in this compilation were just okay, kept my interest, although no surprises. As my husband is six years younger than me I didn't find the five year age difference to be that significant.

I read all of Jo Beverley's books and this one was no exception. I love romance novels even though sometimes they write almost the same kinds of books but then how many times can you the same kind of books over and over without repeating yourself.
I'm a long time Beverley fan, and even I must admit this story does not show her at the top of her game but her story is definitely the best of this uneven lot.
