One of the things I really enjoy about anthologies is that typically the stories are short and sweet which allows me to pick up and put it down reading a few stories at a time.
The Heart of a Hero Anthology has some really fantastic stories in it, some from authors I’ve read before and others are new to me. This anthology contains an eclectic group of stories and I like the fact that some are complete stories with a beginning, middle and end while others are a ‘scene” out of a much more developed novel (or at least that is how it appears).
A Kiss Under a Blue Christmas Moon by Tamra Ferguson is set in Crystal Rock which is a location for this author’s “Wounded Warrior” series. It’s like going home again to a cozy, safe space. Characters are like old friends and the holidays bring warmth and joy.
Foxxy Christmas by Allyson R Abbot is a quick read full of many layers. The way this author can write about a simple stare and put such movement into it is such a talent. This is a story with romance and suspense. It’s a complete story in a few pages and I NEED MORE.
In addition to “traditional” stories, there are tales of shifters and magic and “escorts”. A great mix of stories.
