Be Mine, Valentine
By Turquoise Morning Press Authors
A dozen short stories of love...just as good as roses. Maybe even better. This short story collection celebrates love - youg love and old, mended love, secret love, and love enduring. Twelve talented writers share stories to touch your heart and soul.
The beauty of Romance books is that it can be Valentine’s Day all year ‘round. That’s why when I purchased Be Mine, Valentine way back in February, I wasn’t in a hurry to read it.
What a delightful anthology full of talented writers. You can honestly read these stories anytime because there is lots o’ love to go around. So don’t be shy, if you love fluffy romance and to read short little stories that make you warm and fuzzy all over, you don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day next year to enjoy.
Valentina: The Untold Legend by Jennifer Johnson– This first story is an old time historical and a wonderful new twist on the name Valentines. True love has no bounds and miracles can happen.
The Red Dress by Amy Leblanc – I think this was one of my favourites. It was a short story but it felt longer. Great love connection from a thoughtful man. You wanted to fall in love with the male character.
The Gift by Cat Shaffer – Oh what a wonderful story of long time love. A moving romance that demonstrates that time cannot diminish the vows you make when you marry.
The Letter by Suzanne Barrett – An awesome tale that proves that love comes from within. You fall in love with the person, not the appearance of a person.
Love Takes the Cake by Krista Ames – A great little story about forgiveness and understanding the mistakes that one makes in life. Take a look at yourself and see if you are taking anyone for granted. You may regret it if you don’t start appreciating them.
The Legend of the True Love Angel by Bobbye Terry – A sweet spin on a make believe old Irish tale. Even when the circumstances for love look bleak, an angel can visit you and steer you in the right direction.
Forever in My Heart by Nancy Naigle – Awe man, this one brought a tear to my eye. When someone’s Valentine is taken away from the far too soon.
Be Mine by Margaret Ethridge – My favourite of the anthology. Light hearted and humourous. Even when the perfect planning of a Valentine’s weekend is organized, you can predict the unexpected.
Secret Valentine by Marissa Dobson – Who wouldn’t want a pick me up like this after a horrible break up with the wrong man. There are great men out there and have been all your life. Just open you eyes. He’s right in front of you.
Bittersweet by Tracy March– Another amazing heart warming story that proves you’re never too young to be a gentleman. Totally warm and fuzzy moment that just makes you want to go hug someone.
A Mother’s Heart by Janet Eaves – When life feels like it can’t get any lower, with patience, time and hard work the recovery can be amazing and blessed. A wonderful story around adoption.
His Other Valentine by Elizabeth Chalkley – If you have been married a little while and married life is just weighing in on you, here is a perfect little remedy that you just might keep for the future reference.
