    I love anthologies collections of short stories and this was a great one It is 6 short stories about first kisses no surprise there It was very cleanThere were Christian references in some maybe all? of the stories but nothing preachyI don't think I have read other books by any of these authors but I would love to read of their books

    First Kisses Inspy Kisses Collection #1 is the first collection of novellas from some of my favorite authors Each story has a theme around first kisses which is incredibly sweet and sometimes hilarious I was surprised that they sueezed in 6 different stories in one bookThe Rambler’s Bride by Linda GoodnightJericho North gets the surprise of his life when he is greeted with a kiss from his brother’s widow Esther who he believes has a sordid past Jericho’s uest is to claim what is rightfully his from his brother’s will but he didn’t know about his nephew Esther is desperately trying to make life in Kansas work but she will not sell the land that her husband would want to leave his son Is Jericho the answer to her problems?I enjoyed this story that starts with a bang Right away I was drawn into the lives of Jericho and Esther Esther is a strong woman and she was not willing to be pushed around Jericho is conflicted about what to do with his rising feelings for Esther and his nephew; his struggles are sincere I thoroughly enjoyed this storyLovebirds at the Heartbreak Cafe by Janet TronstadSet in the 1950′s Penny a widow needs a job to support all her children She meets a truck driver Buddy who helps her find a job and take care of her family While Buddy can’t help falling in love with the sweet woman he can’t ever imagine Penny returning his feelings Can these two find love at the Heartbreak Cafe?This story was one of the sweetest ones I’ve read in a long time The tone is so down to earth and homey I feel like I need to live in a small town and experience all the uirks and hospitalities that occur The story is a very light hearted read that will put a smile on your faceHer Mule Hollow Cowboy by Debra CloptonMeet Cliff Masterson the famous bull rider who is ready to settle down Showing up at his brother’s place early he rescues Maddie Rose one of his brother’s partners Although she is hurt Maddie Rose can take care of herself Even if there’s something drawing her to Cliff she will not be hurt by that cowboy Will Mule Hollow’s matchmakers have their work cut out for them?I love the fun banter between Cliff and Maddie Maddie is feisty and determined Reading about Mule Hollow made me want to read from Debra Clopton I didn’t want the story to endDeadly Hunt by Margaret DaleyTess Miller is a bodyguard who is on vacation in her uncle’s isolated cabin when a wounded stranger collapses at her door Shane Burkhart is grateful to this guardian angel but Tess is hesitant to trust him She’s not sure if he’s a victim or a criminal Who would want to kill Shane? Can Tess figure out what’s going on before someone else gets hurt? Can she shove aside her feelings of attraction for Shane and do her job?As a huge fan of Margaret Daley I was excited to jump into this short mystery thriller of a story I was fully committed to the characters and their struggles For such a short story the pacing was great and the story didn’t suffer too much I only wish there was to the story I love Daley’s strong women who stand up for justice I encourage everyone to pick up some of her other books – they’re that goodNecessary Proof by Camy TangAfter becoming a Christian in prison Alex Villa started working to help stop all the gang activity happening in Sonoma but now he’s been framed for the death of a cop Can his old friend Jane Lawton use her skills as a computer expert to prove his innocence without getting both of them killed in the process? Can Jane let go of her mistrust in men and trust the man she initially rejected?Camy Tang is another of my favorite authors of all time and yes it’s because I’m biased She always writes about Asian American heroines which I absolutely identify with She has a great voice that is sometimes humorous and yet authentic She is true to what she knows and the pacing of this story was exactly what I wanted This mystery thriller is full of action and suspense but nothing too dark Fans of romance suspense will definitely enjoy this oneKissed by a Cowboy by Lacy WilliamsHaley Carston used to be the shy girl who followed around Katie Michaels her senior year of high school but she has returned to Redbud Trails OK to spend time with and care for her aunt dying of cancer She runs into the first boy who ever kissed her Maddox Michaels Katie’s older brother and can’t decide if her teenage crush would ever have feelings for her Maddox feels he is barely holding everything together; what could he even offer the beautiful Haley?Although I didn’t experience all the Haley did growing up I identified with getting over her shyness On the outside she looks almost perfect but on the inside she still struggles with insecurities and daddy issues the way that most of us do Maddox is a cowboy who struggles with the “provider” hat that was placed on his head after his dad drunk himself to death The constant pressure is overwhelming at times for him The religious thread in this story was almost non existent which was a little disappointing to me but others might appreciate the author’s subtlyAll in all I rated the novella 355 because the stories are too rushed for my taste but it can’t really be helped I would definitely recommend the book to those who love reading fun and heartwarming storiesI received this book for free from NetGalley but was not reuired to give a positive review

    This is an excellent collection of stories Wonderful authors I loved this book The reason why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was because I was not too interested in the second to last story in this book Necessary Proof I loved the falling in love I loved the thought of happily ever after and the way each other conveyed their stories in very different ways I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest opinion

    As soon as I saw who was on the roster for First Kisses Inspy Kisses Collection #1 published by Aspendawn the book sailed to the top of my reading list Linda Goodnight Janet Tronstad Debra Clopton Margaret Daley Camy Tang and Lacy Williams All of these authors have already been published with Harleuin's Love Inspired line Debra Clopton and Margaret Daley are usually a guarantee to me of a great readThe book is a collection of six novellasshort stories which are tied together by first kisses which occur uite early for some and for others at the end of the story1 The Rambler's Bride by Linda GoodnightThis is a western historical set in the 1800's Jericho North has come to see Esther North his brother's widow a woman who Jericho considers to be a harlot because Silas his brother met her at the local saloon Theodore Perkins Esther's cousin in law and mayor of the nearest town wants Esther to sell the farm to him supposedly so that he can magnanimously offer her a better price than what the coming railroad would give to her However neither Esther nor Theodore know that Jericho is the actual owner since Silas willed the farm to Jericho Jericho is determined to kick Esther off his land but he discovers uite uickly that he's attracted to his brother's widow and that she isn't what he thought she was He also finds out that there was a lot that had happened to Silas that his brother had not informed Jericho about This story was six chapters long but I thought that it was uite a complete story There are a number of revelations that are revealed to the reader as Jericho discovers them By the end I was rooting for the protagonists This is the first historical that I've read by Linda Goodnight; most of her work that I've read before has been contemporary romances I give this a thumbs up2 Lovebirds at the Heartbreak Cafe by Janet Tronstad If you love Ms Tronstad's Dry Creek series we revisit a nearby town Webster's Crossing in 1958 Buddy Hamilton is an ex serviceman who is working as a flatbed trucker He often stops by the Heartbreak Cafe for a meal when he passes through town There he meets Penny Rose a widow with six children to care for Penny is desperate to find a job to support her family She had been renting some farmland nearby but was unable to continue to work the land due to a lack of finances She left with her family to find work elsewhere but returned to Webster's Crossing after a fruitless search for a job Buddy and other kind souls at Webster's Crossing band together to help the family out As Buddy spends time with Penny and the children he discovers how a young girl like Penny ended up with six children to support He plots to find a way to restore to Penny the life that she had sacrificed in order to care for her family not realizing that he might be the prince that she and children are looking forI'm not really a big fan of the Dry Creek Series I've read a few books from the series in the past but never really got into them as an avid follower I did enjoy this novella though I found myself laughing upon reading the moment when Buddy first laid eyes on the children piled in Penny's car after hearing that she was a widow This one is worth a read3 Her Mule Hollow Cowboy by Debra CloptonThis is a contemporary story set in Mule Hollow my favourite fictional Texan town The couple involved are Cliff Masterson and Maddie Rose no relation to Penny Rose from the Dry Creek story above unless this was a deliberate collaboration that Janet Tronstad and Debra Clopton made like their previously released Small Town Brides which is composed of two novellas about two female cousins who met their matches in Dry Creek and Mule Hollow respectively Cliff is a bull rider who is looking to retire from the circuit He wants to buy his own ranch so that he can raise rodeo stock Maddie co owns a ranch with four other men one of whom is Cliff's twin brother Rafe This connection results in Maddie's and Cliff's initial meeting as he rescues her from being stomped on by an ornery bull The sparks fly between Maddie and Cliff but Maddie is afraid of getting close to Cliff because of her past She is also fiercely independent acting in this way to overcome her feelings of insecurity and inadeuacy Cliff has some issues to deal with too having come to realize that his bull riding career may have been his own way of dealing with his own past but he knows a good thing when he sees it and that is a future with Maddie Maddie shares things that she has never shared before about her past with Cliff and is falling in love with himAlthough Cliff is looking for property so that he can retire bull riding his sponsors rope him back into the circuit Maddie is fearful that he will abandon her Will this couple make it?I think that this story is sigh worthy but I'm biased; I love Mule Hollow and its characters App Stanley Sam Hailey Bell Sutton and of course the Mule Hollow Matchmaking Posse composed of Esther Mae Norma Sue and Adela show up in the novella And boy The ladies of the Posse were bad this time round However how Cliff responded was very sweet In fact I liked how he conducted himself throughout the whole story Yes Maddie he's a keeper And Ms Cloptonif you ever read this I would love love love to read about Rafe's story There's enough of a hint that he has had some disappointment in love and I would love for that cowboy to have his own happy ending In fact I would also love to read Ty's Chase's and Dalton's stories too4 Deadly Hunt by Margaret Daley Tess Miller a bodyguard who specializes in protecting children is on vacation at her uncle's isolated cabin in the Arizona mountains She is trying to unwind from her last assignment when an injured man without any identification shows up at the cabin bleeding from a gunshot wound Shane Burkhart claims to be the owner of a high tech company but has no idea why he had been shot; was it an accidental shooting by a hunter or is there someone trying to kill him? Will Shane survive his injuries? Is he really who he says he is? If the shooting was not accidental who is trying to kill him and why? What will Tess do about the attraction that she feels towards this stranger who is injured in her uncle's cabin?I thought that this suspense story was uite well written For the most part the reader discovers details about who Shane is and the threat against his life as Tess learns about them Unlike some stories I had no idea who the bad guys were until they were revealed For a while there I was even uncertain about the male protagonist The story unfolded well and as I mentioned before I usually find that Margaret Daley delivers a satisfying read5 Necessary Proof by Camy TangAlex Villa a police informant and Jane Lawton an ITsoftware specialist are on the run from a Filipino gang that wants to recover the laptop that Alex had swiped after tailing a gang member to one of their drug labs Alex had previously given information to the police about another drug lab belonging to the gang which led to an officer being ambushed and killed by gang members when the police tried to raid it Alex needs Jane's expertise to retrieve any data that could prove his innocence and show that the gang is trying to frame him The pair barely keep one step ahead of their pursuers and are chased all over Sonoma However being on the lam forces Jane to face issues that have been plaguing her for the past year in which she has grown to be distrustful of men after being wounded and betrayed by most of the males in her life All of this has also resulted in an estranged relationship with God Alex who had been previously interested in Jane finds himself increasingly attracted to her again but cannot act on this attraction until he can resolve the dangerous situation that he has brought upon Jane and himselfThis story was a bit frantic than the previous one because the pursuit takes place for most of the story I'm not a technologically inclined person but the descriptions of what Jane needed to do with the computer in order to help Alex were good enough for me to follow and not get lost Finally this was the story in this collection that I thought had the most incorporation of faith in God into the storyline I enjoyed reading it 6 Kissed by a Cowboy by Lacy WilliamsAt the time of this review this particular short story is also available at Smashwords In fact that is where I first read this before I received a copy of First KissesMaddox Michaels was the man who Haley Carston had hoped would fall in love with her and want to marry before Maddox's sister and Haley's best friend Katie died Then he was full of confidence about his life and future with the possibility of being noticed by professional scouts for the NFL Now Maddox is a different man; he is barely keeping his family together having assumed the responsibility for caring for his orphaned niece Olivia and for a younger brother Justin who was injured in a bull riding accident He has long shouldered the position of being the man of the family as both his parents have passed on Maddox is also trying to keep the family farm financially afloat traveling for a few days at a time doing additional work to earn extra income Haley and Maddox are reunited when Haley returns to Redbud Trails to care for her Aunt Matilda who is dying of cancer Haley runs into Olivia a precocious 11 year old who wants to start up a gourmet ice cream business but reuires start up money that Maddox can barely spare When Haley offers to help fund Olivia's business because she is determined to give her best friend's daughter a chance to realize her dreams Maddox reluctantly agrees to Haley's scheme The time Maddox spends with Haley he realizes that he's falling for her but he wrestles with fears that he has nothing to offer her when his own life is a mess Meanwhile Haley is also falling for Maddox but can't figure out how to overcome his reservations about starting a relationship and his increasingly distant attitude I liked this story Out of all the stories in this collection I found this one to be the most plausible believable and possible that could happen in real life It is one that I could relate to also because it is set in a contemporary time and didn't reuire me to imagine being in another era or for me to imagine being involved in a situation where my life would be endangered through espionage or criminal activity The only uibble that I have is that I wouldn't classify this story as a Christian inspirational; I'd probably group it under the sweet and clean categories Even though there is mention about church and people from church I didn't see much mention about God or about drawing strength from a relationship with HimHowever as I mentioned before I enjoyed this story This is the first work that I've read by Lacy Williams I'd be interested in reading of her work in the futureIn shortThis is a nice collection of short stories that includes the historical suspense and contemporary genres Each story is a fairly light read I believe that this is a great sampler for the authors included in this book if one hasn't read any of their work beforeDisclaimer I was provided with a free e copy of First Kisses from Net Galley in exchange for a review All opinions stated in this review are mine This review is also posted on my blog athttpwhatiscbreadingblogspotca
