It Happened One Night - Anthology

This anthology has an interesting premise, all the stories feature couples that are known to each other but have been separated for 10 years. They now meet for just one night at an inn and that’s all the time they have to deal with their differences.

The Fall of Rogue Gerrard by Stephanie Laurens
This was my least favorite story. I found no chemistry between the main characters, didn’t feel there was enough development for them for them immediately proceed to the bedroom area. They also weren’t very interesting characters so…
Grade: C-

Spellbound by Mary Balogh
My favorite. Balogh brings two people together makes them talk about what separated them 10 years ago, of what they have been doing ever since and we can’t help but believe them when they realize their feelings for each other are still there.
Grade: A

Only You by Jacquie D'Alessandro

This story was not bad but it seemed too unbelievable that the heroine had suffered so much, that the stable boy that was once her friend is still in love with her and that in the end she decides to go to him and work with him in the inn.
Grade: C+

From This Moment On by Candice Hern
I had high expectations for Wilhelmina story and although it was bad it also wasn’t as good as I hoped. Her character in the other books seemed to have more depth than what she reveals here. She meets a childhood friend and they talk about everything that happened to them and their young love and both needing forgiveness for past deeds. That seemed a bit forced especially because Wilhelmina always seemed to be the kind of woman who wasn’t apologizing for doing what needed to be done to survive.
Grade: B-


  1. If I was to get this book it would be for the Mary Balogh story.

  2. You know what would like? For publishers to make anthologies just with her short stories like the Under The Mistletoe anthology. Now that would make very happy!


I love to chat about books and stuff and I would love to hear from like minded readers. Please do leave me a comment :-)
