The Clayborne Brides, by Julie Garwood


I was very hopeful after my love for For the Roses, that these follow-up short stories would have the warmth and love I’d found in that book. But of the three stories here, only the first one brought me the same measure of contentment. The other two seem less fully formed, and by the final one, the heroine is so “damsel in distress” that it was infuriating. There is also the issue that the final story is about people of color, yet their skin tone is utterly incidental to the story rather than deepening the historical story the author can tell. Only for die-hard fans of the first book, 18 and up.
