A Christmas Brothel: An Anthology

Oh, I loved this book!  My first Christmas book of the season.  This book came about when one of the authors saw a book’s title that was  supposed to be betrothed, and she read brothel.  Well… great books come about this way!

In this book, Faur Elke Klaus opens up her brothel to stranded travelers over Christmas, see Canterbury is experiencing the worst blizzard in years.  Complete whiteout conditions, and all the Inns are full, so Faur Klaus can do nothing else but open her haus to travelers who have no where else to go.  She does love Christmas so, and it is a time of Miracles.

The group of people that end up gathered in the haus is truly funny and heart wrenching at the the same time, and the their reasons being there are as varied as they are.  Songs are sung, and tales are told.  Some find old loves, some new, some renew their their commitment to each other.

I loved all the stories. They were great, the only one I had issues with one story, where the author dressed her heroine in fishnet stockings, it is 1816, they didn’t come about till much later, and she changed the last name of her couple also.  (and it was a short story!) All the rest were great.  With all the proceeds going to Toy’s for Tots and the cost only .99 this a book you much pick up for the holiday season.  I may have even found the start to a new series I am going to have to investigate. That, my friends, is the joy of an anthology like this one.     Five stars for this one.
