Nora Roberts is great! I have SO many of these books, it's ridiculous, but I do love them. They never get old to me. I read them over and over and keep buying more! I am very satisfied with the seller and would highly recommend them! I would use them again. You can't go wrong here! Really really good buy! I hope this review was helpful to you.
Enjoyable shorter stories by 3 of my favorite authors. Should keep you entertained throughout. Start early in the evening, rather than later.
IN FROM THE COLD: (Nora Roberts) I have never read any of the MacGregor stories by this author. It takes place in 1774 with Ian meeting his future wife during the opening of the American Revolution. It was readable but nothing special.

MIRACLE OF THE HEART: (Patricia Potter) This is a thin story about two men in love with the same woman. One man is on the Union side and the other wears the Confederacy uniform.

The ONLY thing I found interesting about this tale revolved around the suffering of the civilians. Many civilians starved during the Civil War because the warring parties stole, confiscated or burned their food stuffs. This story made a point of the scarcity of food.

CHRISTMAS AT BITTER CREEK: (Ruth Langan) Laura Connors is alone and almost overwhelmed with the work on her farm plus teaching. When Matthew Braden comes to Bitter Creek (he and his brothers grew up there), he’s seriously injured. Laura takes care of his wounds, knowing he will ride out again.

This is a special story about second chances; this one is my favorite of the trio.
One of the short stories -- and #4 in a series -- I think of the Hampton brothers.
MIRACLE OF THE HEART is the story of Rafe Hampton and Blythe Somers.
Blythe has taken some ten orphans in the Shenandoah Valley, 1864 and is trying to give the children a pleasant Christmas.
Seth Hampton, a doctor for the southern troops, the Mosby raiders, has dropped into Blythe's farm with a wounded General Massey. She knows that the Union soldiers will be looking for these two. But Seth has been supplying Blythe with what little food he could spare to help her support the little ones.
Benji, at five is the youngest one, he came with his sister, Margaret who is eight. Then came Jaime, an embittered twelve year old asking for work in exchange for food and he ended up staying. Traumatized nine year old Suzie came, then Abraham and Micah, nine and eight year old brothers who had set out to find their father and found Blythe instead. Then cama Sarah, a house slave who had gotten lost and Katy and July, two like Sarah who had been sold.
Danger came in the form of Major Rafe Hampton, whom Blythe had not heard from in two years. Eighteen months ago Rafe had been informed by a malevalant neighbor that Blythe was marrying his brother, Seth. He has become hard and bitter thinking that he has lost Blythe.
Oh, what a story - really great, especially the way it was resolved --- look for Seth's story in HH Untamed: Maverick Hearts 1993. ---- series starts with Swampfire - Samara and Silver Link - All Harlequin Historicals.
This CHristmas anthology includes one of the MacGregor series chapters- this one is about Minuteman Ian MacGregor.

A must have for fans of this Scottish series by Nora Roberts!
