Naughty Hearts is an anthology that allowed me to meet some wonderfully new to me authors. The stories were connected in theme only and ran the gamut from paranormal to time travel to contemporary and historical. It had a little bit for everyone and with a few exceptions each tale appeared to be stand alone stories. Even the stories that were part of a series were easy to follow along. And while I enjoyed these stories, I must admit that I had a favorite. It was Buy Me a Rose by Francesca Hawley. Ms. Hawley wasn’t new to me, I enjoy her stories and with this story I was reminded why. She gave us Jessica and Nat, a couple who still love each other but are drifting apart. They have this awesome advantage in that they are true mates but they are learning that love isn’t enough. They still have to work to make their relationship a happy and fulfilling one. Ms. Hawley captured the essence extremely well and with very few words.
Overall, this was a wonderful compilation of stories. Some were great, some okay but all were enjoyable.
