Reading this genre person can be involved into a beautiful story of two enamored people who love each other to the craziness, to the death. Very often the plot of romance books is full of difficulties which prevent two halves to be together, however they overcome all the obstacles due to their great and pure love. Sometimes this genre makes cry, sometimes makes immerse in dreams. It is always very sentimental. The story can by real or fictional, it does not matter

I love Valerie Martin and this short story collection is exceptionally fine. The characters seem very real and the writing is superb. While all the stories have the same emotional tone this book of short stories is still enjoyable as Valerie Martin delivers truly identifiable, interesting characters with extremely engaging plots. It is also my opinion that this collection of short stories could provide an excellent reference for an apprentice writer (on how) to explore several different story types within the same emotional setting without becoming too formulaic. My opinion also stands for those writers among us who want or need a refresher.
